Rip Curl is best known for their wide range of surf and beach gear. However, they are also huge in the world of skiing and snowboarding. In fact, it could be argued that the years Rip Curl has invested in the surf industry have put them in a prime position to design some of the best performing ski and snowboarding gear in the world for Men, Women and Kids.
Rip Curl breaks their Winter snow gear into three primary categories. First up is the Ultimate collection. These are manufactured to the highest standards, with the best materials available providing a 30K/40K waterproof and breathable membrane. Next is the Core section, where you’ll find “advanced technology and materials” that deliver ultimate 2-way stretch and a 20K/20K waterproof and breathable membrane. For those with a tighter budget, the Rider category offers “value at an affordable price”. However, all three categories offer stylish ski jackets, ski pants and cold weather gear that will put you in good stead on the slopes.
In recent years Rip Curl has focused on creating durable outerwear that is manufactured from a selection of recycled and eco-friendly materials that will stand the test of time. The Rip Curl Search Series is PFC Free and boasts a low carbon footprint.
Their other pionering range is the Rip Curl Gum Series - a combination of ultimate stretch, breathability and waterproofness. The ski jackets and ski pants within the Gum series feature the most advanced technologies for ultimate comfort and performance thanks to a 4-way stretch and 37.5 technology that is breathable and waterproof.
You’ll find virtually any type of clothing you might need available from Rip Curl, including ski and snowboarding pants and jackets to beanies, vests, insulated puffers, fleece jumpers and even one-piece snowsuits for all-over protection.
Whether you’re new to the sport, or you’ve spent years of your life ripping down the mountains, you’ll find something to appreciate in Rip Curl’s huge range.
