Nitro Outerwear 2010-2011

30 May, 2010

In addition to their snowboard line, Nitro continues to bring out their snowboard outerwear that answers to the call of audio & visual liberation on the slopes.  Their outerwear features 15k, 10K and 8K specific features depending on the conditions you’ll be riding in and they all have a variety of technical features to enhance the riders experience on the slopes.  Nitro uses fusion fit which fuses the mobility of the baggier fit together with the tailored aspects of slimmer fit for a perfect mid-fit combo.

Here’s a glimpse at a couple of the pieces coming out for 10-11 from Nitro, I unfortunately didn’t get too many shots of the outerwear at the tradeshow.

Nitro Fun Time Jacket
