and we’ve got a deal you can’t refuse

Imagine you’re outdoors on a lovely winter day, just minding your own business, when you’re suddenly attacked by vicious elements like snow,
wind, rain and criminally cold temperatures.

Take it from us, stuff happens…
But for a reasonable fee, the Taiga
® gang can provide the protection you need. After all, it would be a shame if you got unnecessarily soaking wet, freezing cold, or worse – if you know what I mean…

Here in the coastal area the first line of defense, and your most important assets for protection against the weather are Shell Jacket & Shell Pants.
They block wind, rain, and snow, and ensure that the clothing underneath
stays dry & warm.
  Furthermore, they provide a layer of still air, which adds some extra warmth.

And should you lose your way, these shells help you make it through the night and avoid death by exposure/hypothermia…  Just make sure to always carry extra insulative clothing in your daypack to add to the layers under your shell.

Since it’s a fair bet you already own one or several shell jackets, we’ll focus this issue on the item that’s easily overlooked, but just as important as the jacket… Shell Pants!
