I'm more band geek than sporty chick and I'm not particularly fond of cold weather. But ironically, I've always longed to go skiing. One of my favorite parts of the Winter Olympics is tuning into the slaloms. I can just close my eyes and imagine the rush as I fly down the snowy hills, bobbing in and out of obstacles, pole in hand. Seems like so much fun!
When I'm finally ready to cash in on a trip to Lake Tahoe, I know just where to find a fashionable snowbunny style.
Kombi Sports is one of the leading suppliers of outdoor performance products, fusing fashion and textile technology to keep you warm and dry. They rely on designs and colors that fit today's active lifestyles and they work with some of the most talented names in freeskiing and snowboarding to create products that inspire. Since 1961, Kombi has had the art, science and innovation to lead the pack. Or piste. Or pipe.
Whether you're looking for baselayers, gloves/mitts or headwear, Kombi has something to outfit the entire family.
Kombi Sports was kind enough to send me their 1961 winter hat in Chocolate to review.
I know what you're thinking. Kristen, it's spring! Now, I'm a fan of sunshine like the rest of us but this hat makes me actually wish for a chill in the air! It has an acrylic knit outer and soft fleece inner so it is warm and comfy. The cap style is really trendy and would look good on or off the slopes. It meshes seamlessly with my retro peacoat. Very 19th century Sherlock Holmes. Is it fall yet?
Bottom line: If you're into winter sports or if you just want to look great while you fake it, Kombi Sports has you covered.
BUY IT: You can use the handy dandy dealer locator at www.kombisports.com to find your nearest retailer, where you can purchase the 1961 hat and other Kombi sportswear.
