St. Paul, Minn. - Podiumwear has improved several products in it’s custom nordic line-up and has added some completely new products as well.
Last year’s introduction of the Jessie Diggin’s Women’s Line was so well received that we are adding a Women’s Silver Race Suit to the lineup. The new suit uses the same Podiumwear-exclusive fabric comprised of a textured yarn, with both thermal and wicking properties. While its technical properties are identical to the Men’s Silver suit, it is cut for a woman’s body with added arm gussets in the top and a women’s cut on the bottom. “Offering another race suit option for women at a lower price point allows more teams access to a women-specific suit,” said Podiumwear owner Reid Lutter. “We plan on working with Jessie Diggins to grow the women’s line until all of our clients have access to gear made specifically for a woman.”
The Jessie Diggins Women’s Gold Suit has also undergone some changes. This summer Jessie worked with Podiumwear product developers to tweak the lines on the Gold suit bottom so that it conforms a bit better and is even more comfortable. “I have had so much fun working with Podiumwear to make women’s suits, jackets and warm-ups that I feel really proud of,” said Diggins. “I can’t wait to see more women and girls out there in gear made specifically for them. It’s awesome!”
Podiumwear is also introducing a new Nordic Vest to its product line. The Vest uses a wind and water-resistant fabric for the front panels and an extra-breathable back panel for improved air-flow. The zippered hip pockets are a favorite feature. The nordic vest is a great layering piece that teams will want to add to their gear bag.
“Vests are key piece in a nordic athlete’s layering system and we are so happy about this one,” said Reid Lutter. “We see a lot of teams out there with custom team uniforms but then some of the team members will have their own favorite vests that don’t match the team uniform. We feel very confident that clients will want this vest, not only to complete their team’s look but because it is simply an amazing product with every technical detail a nordic skier would want.”
