Among the key outerwear innovations, Columbia Sportswear has introduced several new ranges, including the Labyrinth Loop and Infinity Summit Double Wall, featuring new Omni-Heat Infinity heat-reflecting technology. Omni-Heat Infinity technology is the next development of Omni-Heat, which has been on the market for about a decade, and stands out for more effective thermal management, including increased heat-reflecting properties, without harming the overall level of vapor permeability.
The Infinity Summit Double Wall series is available in three styles for men and women, namely the Infinity Summit Double Wall Down Vest, the Infinity Summit Double Wall Down Jacket and the Infinity Summit Double Wall Down Hooded Jacket. The jackets feature Omni-Heat Infinity and Double Wall technologies, the latter being a special two-layer construction that effectively blocks wind and retains heat.
The Infinity Summit Double Wall compact jackets, which can be folded into their own pocket, are made of nylon outer and inner layer, and natural goose down with a stated packing density of at least 800FP is used as an insulating filler. The design of the jackets includes three external pockets, a front fastening with a secure zip, volume adjustments at the hem and profiled sleeves with elastic cuffs.
Labyrinth Loop insulated jackets are currently only available in two styles for men and women, the Labyrinth Loop Jacket and the Labyrinth Loop Hooded Jacket. The outer layer of the jackets is made of reinforced nylon, the base of the lining, which is made using Omni-Heat Infinity technology, forms a polyester with a perforated structure, and to create the necessary level of thermal insulation, a synthetic insulation is used, consisting entirely of recycled polyester fibers.
The Labyrinth Loop jackets feature a high padded collar, front closure with a secure zip, adjustable hem, profiled sleeves with elasticated cuffs, a pair of padded outer pockets with a zip fastening and one small inside pocket also with a zip fastening.
The insulated new Infinity Summit Double Wall series starts at $180 for a vest, while a full hooded jacket costs $240. Prices for insulated jackets of the Labyrinth Loop series are set by the manufacturer within 160 and 180 US dollars. It is already possible to place an order for the presented novelties, including through the official website of Columbia Sportswear.
