Who: Orage Outerwear
What: An outerwear company that puts skiing above all else and is built on a foundation of innovation and constant improvement. Driven by the desire to progress the sport of skiing, Orage creates outerwear pieces that blur the lines between technical performance and fashion. Their open arms embrace of the free-skiing movement has quickly moved Orage to the leading edge of “must-have” outerwear brands for young skiers of all ages.
Pros Who Back the Brand: The Orage team roster is stacked with some of the most talented skiers around. These athletes are their inspiration and their R&D field testers in as they try to create the highest performing, best looking outerwear on the planet. The combination of different visions and passions that their athletes bring to the design process, pushes Orage to continue to create pieces that speak to skiers of all styles and abilities.
The Orage Global Team:
JP Auclair, Phil Casabon, Kaya Turski, Xavier Bertoni, Banks Gilberti, Matt Margetts, Charley Ager, Tatum Monod, Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Anais Caradeuex, Mcrae Williams, Chris Logan, Dale Talkington, Jermey Prevost
How Much: Orage youth jackets range in price from $120 to $175, while the pants range from $80 to $135. Whether you’re buying the Xavier Junior Jacket packed full of technical features and embellishments or the trimmed down El Nino Jacket, you’ll be getting a superior outerwear piece that will transition your kid from fall to spring and keep them dry and stylish all season long.
Shopping Tips: Orage runs true to size with a looser free-ride cut. When ordering the outerwear pieces leave plenty of room to layer under for those colder ski days. This year marks the first year that Orage has offered a “little youth” line with all the same technical features and stylish cuts as their junior line, so if you’re shopping for ages 2-6x be sure to shop the littles.
