OR Snow Show 2020 | Beyond Clothing: New Products for 2020

Right after SHOT Show 2020 Beyond Clothing exhibited at Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2020 in Denver.
On display were some products intended to launch in Spring 2020 season as well as some that will be available in fall.

As always the main concept behind Beyond is not to look at the single piece of clothing by itself but to the entire clothing system, a much needed point of view in this industry. A very strong theme is also sustainability, which is becoming a very key topic in the outdoor industry, considering how the customer basis is tied with nature and how it is unaware of the environmental footprint that equipment manufacturing has.

The DNA of Beyond lays in the education on how to use the system to achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This mindset transpires through many of the new products that they are presenting, designed to used for multiple applications.
While many companies focus on providing tailored solutions for their specific customer base (usually with few applications in mind), Beyond is catering to a much wider crowd by focusing on the only aspect that different end-users have in common: protection from the environment.
This really requires some reflection on what is actually at the core of what we are trying to do. To be able to experience a much broader spectrum of the outdoors a single $500 jacket is insufficient and, at the same time, not everyone is able to drop $2000 for an adequate system.

This is where the choice of a direct to consumer model of a system-based company is the true enabler for those that need clothing for what it intended for: a tool to protect from the elements.
Understanding whether a company operates around a system approach or a single-garment approach is not an easy task for the average consumer; often times there are subtle characteristics that differentiate the two models. It is quite easy to be attracted by the bells and whistles of a garment only to find out that by itself it is not going to help in the adventure. While, in the meantime, having blown half of the budget that was intended for the whole system.

Respecting the environment is an extremely common trend in the clothing/sporting industry. Unfortunately it is one of the most hypocritical out there.
Polymerization, treatments applied to threads and fabrics, using excessive DWR on low-quality materials and “fashion” mindset (product quickly becoming “old”) are just some of the reasons why the outdoor clothing industry is  extremely polluting.

Maybe a system-based approach to clothing could help?

  • Whenever something is worn-out you only need to update/fix/upgrade that single piece.
  • A more modular system is more versatile and doesn’t require many climate-specific items.
  • Most of the garments can be used all year (Skiing, hiking, emergency…).

It’s a sensitive topic but it’s necessary.
Both at SHOT and at OR Snow Show there was a big focus sensitizing people about protecting not only the endangered species but also the wilderness and backcountry.
