Hi. I'm Brent Vanni, and I work in product development at L.L.Bean. I'm here to talk to you about our redesigned Ascent Outerwear collection, created for outdoor enthusiasts looking for high-performing, active outerwear that provides premium protection in demanding climates.
Fend off winter's worst with the Ascent Gore-Tex Jacket, updated with cutting-edge Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric with stretch, for increased range of motion. The innovative Micro Grid Backer technology resists snagging, slides easily over layers and feels dry against your skin.
For an additional buffer against extreme weather, pair it with the Ascent Gore-Tex Pants. These pants also have been updated to allow for expanded range of motion, keeping you comfortable in the harshest conditions.
For exceptional warmth in biting cold, choose the Ascent WINDSTOPPER Down Jacket, featuring a gripstop Gore WINDSTOPPER shell with 700-fill goose down and advanced stitchless construction to eliminate cold spots.
For easy layering on the trail, turn to the Ascent Packaway Pullover or Packaway Vest with PrimaLoft. These pieces are light enough to wear under a shell, but can also be worn alone on warmer days. If you need to shed layers, they easily stow in their own pockets.
Warm and lightweight, the Ascent Polartec Packaway Fleece is ideal for both its functionality and compressibility, and it's been updated for expanded movement and comfort while maintaining superior warmth.
Tested in the lab and proven in the field, the Ascent Collection is designed to meet every winter weather challenge. Offered in styles for both men and women, Ascent's quality construction and functional style will keep you toasty and dry for season after season of outdoor adventure. Guaranteed.
