The New Apoc
5 years since the Apoc Classic’s launch of Polartec’s revolutionary NeoShell technology, our design team has re-imagined nearly every detailing from the fabric to the seam tape for this season’s NEW Apoc. Only the labels and zippers remain the same! The NEW Apoc’s exterior is more expressive and athletic with prominent design lines. In terms of feature set this season we have a repositioned hand pocket that are bellowed for greater capacity, a high collar to shut out the elements, a torso shock-cord for enhanced fit adjustment, and a burlier fabric to weather the bumps. The NEW Apoc is now ready for the harshest conditions offering you superior comfort and performance to enhance your #HumanPoweredAdventures.
PERFORMANCE & MATERIAL
The Apoc Classic introduced the world to a new level of waterproof comfort. With Polartec NeoShell, the NEW APOC carries on that legacy in a heavier version of Polartec’s line of highly air-permeable, waterproof 3-layer fabrics. The material is an engineering breakthrough for waterproof air-permeable fabric technologies offering unparalleled comfort. Dynamic air exchange at the surface provides the unrivaled ability to stop water and wind permeation without restricting the release of excess body heat and moisture vapor. This highly aerobic air permeability provides the unique benefit to function as a durable protective shell with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapor moving away from your core. The result is less time thinking about your gear and more time focusing at the task at hand. Learn more about Polartec NeoShell here.
DESIGN & FIT
The NEW Apoc’s cut is generous enough for it to be worn over insulating layers — but it’s trim enough to be worn by itself too. A plethora of pockets allow me to keep batteries, Gu’s, and gloves organized while climbing; thanks to it’s full collar and hood, it offers serious protection from the elements too — providing the perfect balance of function and form. – Chris Brinlee Jr.
Careful attention was paid to the Apoc’s updated fit, feature set and detailing. Designed around Polartec’s new high-tenacity polyester weave the Apoc not only is more durable but is even quieter and more supple. With the key ingredient in place, it was important that the jacket’s value proposition didn’t end with the material. In order to deliver a product that worked in a myriad of outdoor conditions and activities, we balanced fit with just the right amount of features so weight and function aren’t compromised. Ergonomic placement of zippers and pattern articulation are thoughtful and intentional. The net result is a perfect balance of function and form for your mountain pursuits.
