The R&D Shielder is the highlight of this year’s Peak Performance outerwear collection. This jacket + pant combo brings back the old “R&D” logo used only for the brand’s most progressive concepts.
Designed for professional skiers in need of the best performance, this outerwear employs 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro material as well as Aquaguard zippers for incomparable waterproofing and breathability. The R&D Stretch jacket goes even further, with Gore-Tex Pro Stretch providing the same protection with additional stretch for more freedom of movement. The R&D Shielder Stretch jacket has been produced (for now) in a limited edition of only 200 units.
