Founded in Japan in 1950, Goldwin originally specialized in knit fabric manufacturing to develop functional ski sweaters that would go on to become ubiquitous on the slopes a decade later. This is a brand that knows how to treat and manipulate textiles, so it’s no surprise that its Indigo Denim Jacket is actually made from nylon with a protective polyurethane coating. The innovative ski parka has an anti-static taffeta lining and polyester insulation for warmth, along with taped seams and coil zippers for waterproof properties. Details include core vents, adjustable cuffs, a pocket for goggles and a large hood to accommodate helmets. The distinctive indigo finish comes in two different shades.
