Gear Spotlight: Peak Performance Vertical GORE-TEX PRO Collection

By: Downdays November 22, 2022

If you’re in the market for the highest-quality, performance-focused freeride outerwear, look no further than the new Vertical Gore-Tex Pro Collection from Peak Performance.

Developed in collaboration with Peak Performance’s talented pro athlete team, the Vertical Gore-Tex Pro Collection is the highlight of the Swedish brand’s 2022/23 ski outerwear line. With extensive input from the brand’s hard-chargers on the Freeride World Tour, make no mistake: this kit is intended for the very highest level of freeride performance, safety and comfort.

If the Vertical Pro is good enough for Freeride World Tour champions like Elisabeth Gerritzen and Kristoffer Turdell, then it´s good enough for you.

The new collection is actually an amalgamation of two earlier lines from the brand, the R&D Shielder and Vertical Pro product lines. As part of its comprehensive sustainability initiative, Peak Performance is working to reduce the number of products in its collections. So the company took the best aspects of the R&D Shielder and Vertical Pro lines and combined them into the Vertical Gore-Tex Pro collection.

The Vertical Gore-Tex Pro collection is built for the deepest days and the most demanding conditions.
