CANDIDE C1 JacketGET IT
When it comes to taking a sport to the next level, there aren’t too many athletes that can hold a candle to what Candide Thovex has done in the ski world. His clips are face-melting, and his progression and imagination are unlike any other snow athlete we’ve ever seen. That being said, we’re pretty sure that whatever gear he’s using has to be on the same level as his ski performance—which is really asking a lot. And when we got our hands on the CANDIDE C1 Jacket, we have to admit that this piece of gear blew our hair back the same way Thovex’s latest clips do.
This is the resort and park jacket of choice for Thovex, so you can be confident that you’re skiing/riding with the most innovative gear on the market. The construction of this thing is as good as it gets: It’s built with two-layer 60g PRIMALOFT eco-insulation, and it features the perfect blend of mobility, breathability, all-weather protection, and overall handsome aesthetic style. We can’t think of a negative thing to say about this jacket. It moves where you need it to, and it’s built ultra-solid so you can be confident that it won’t malfunction on the hill.
Not to mention that CANDIDE is an eco-conscious brand that you can feel good about supporting. The C1’s lining is constructed from 100-percent recycled polyester, its shell is made from 57-percent organic polyester (made from 100-percent vegan Cane Sugar extracts transformed from raw materials) and 43-percent recycled polyester made from recycled PES plastic. Not only does this jacket perform like the superstar whose name is on it, but it’s also built to last and it simply looks so damn-good on the hill—It’ll turn heads. With ski and snowboard season right around the corner, it’s time to gear up for those first-chair turns. The C1’s thoughtful design and sustainable materials make this our jacket-of-choice this season.—Jon Perino, senior editor
