ZIPLONGS™ WOOL 3/4
Motivation from the Jury
Thanks to the two zippers along both sides, the Ziplongs Wool 3/4 tights from Northern Playgrounds can be easily put on and taken off. »We started testing at minus ten degrees in the morning climbing up a mountain. When the temperature rose and the body heated up I quickly appreciated that I was able to take off the long underwear – without having to remove my boots and my pants«, says one of the jury members. The colour coded, long lasting zippers insure easy handling, and the soft wool fabric earns praise for the level of comfort it offers.
Primary innovation features
Zippers along the sides of both legs; this layering principle we use on our upper bodies is applicable to the legs as well: Layer down when warm, layer up when cold – without removing your pants and boots!
Intended specific end use
This product was originally made for freeride and randonee skiing. But overall this product can be used for any sweaty activity that requires you to change or layer up. Ziplongs can be used as both baselayer and mid-layer.
The product is in 3/4-length for matching with skiing boots. The zipper ends are in a different colours for each leg, to easily distinguish left from right.
We are very enviromentally conscious and try to impose as little harm as possible throughout our supply chain. We even donate an amount of money for every product we sell through our own website to tree planting projects in Africa. This means that for every product we sell there will be planted x number of trees that can absorb CO2.
