New Nordic Products & Upgrades for 2018/19

We are excited to announce big upgrades to our men’s and women’s Gold Level Nordic Race Suits and Jackets this season.  Once again, Podiumwear has teamed up with Olympic Gold Medalist Jessie Diggins on the design of these products. “Jessie’s input and feedback has been integral," said Product Developer Kristine Larsen.  “We are so excited about all the changes, which really revolutionize these cornerstone Podiumwear products.”  In addition, Diggins specifically asked that we make a hat with a pompom as well as the cozy post-race pullover that we’ve named the Afton Pullover after Jessie’s home town here in Minnesota.  All of these products and more are available now on the Podiumwear Nordic Page! 

Gold Level Jacket (Men's & Women's)

The Details

The redesigned Gold Jacket boasts new fabrics, a new cut and lots of technical details, that together completely revolutionize the product .  A new fabric with Dintex® technology on the chest, upper sleeve and collar provides the highest possible level of breathability with an membrane to prevent water and wind from coming in.  A second ultra-breathable fabric at the back and inner sleeve areas wicks moisture to the surface while a third mesh fabric allows maximum ventilation at critical underarm sweat zones.  A new streamlined cut and technical details like AquaSeal® reverse coil zippers and grip band at the bottom hem make this jacket a new gold standard for teams.

The Take-Away

  • Targeted Sweat Zones
  • 3 New Fabrics
  • Water/Wind Resistant
  • New Gripper at Hem
  • Lots of New Technical Details

Gold Level Race Suit
(Men's & Women's)

The Details

The men’s and women’s Gold Level Race Suit also has new fabrics: the first is lighter-weight micro-grid Poly-Spandex blend with amazing wicking ability; the second (used on the hip and thigh panels) is a more durable Velcro-resistant fabric with a cozy, brushed interior.  Both fabrics hold color incredibly well so your team’s design will remain vivid no matter how much you stretch it. We’ve added even more panels -a whopping 33 on the men’s and 34 on the women – guaranteeing that no other race suit will hug the body as well.
