“Designing technical gear and apparel for all adventure seekers is a pledge we take seriously and is what drove us to fill the hole in the market facing sit skiers. Lack of access to adequate gear should never prevent someone from getting outside,” said Damien Huang, Eddie Bauer CEO. “We were lucky to have Trevor as a partner throughout the development process. His expertise and feedback were invaluable to the design team.”
The BC Flyline Kit is a waterproof, insulated ski jacket and bib designed to meet the unique needs of sit skiers. It uses the highest quality materials and construction techniques. Features like extra insulation in the legs, articulated knees, full-range sleeves, and a high back on the bibs were incorporated based on the feedback and direction provided by Trevor.
“After years of skiing in traditional jackets and bibs, it became apparent that ski outerwear was not built for someone to use them in a sit ski like I was,” said Trevor. “Working with the design team at Eddie Bauer allowed me to make sure this kit had all the features I had ever wanted. There were numerous rounds of testing and fine-tuning. I would take the kit into the field for a couple of days, then provide photos and notes on small adjustments for the designers to make until it was the perfect kit for a sit skier.”
In addition to being available at eddiebauer.com, the BC Flyline Kit will be promoted across Eddie Bauer’s social channels and with special video footage playing in-stores.
