INTRODUCING THE ORSDEN SLOPE PANTS
Close your eyes and think about the pants you wear skiing or snowboarding. They're not something you want to put on, right? Uncomfortable, ill-fitting, and overpriced are words that come to mind.
Orsden is solving this problem by creating a pant that actually delivers the elusive trifecta of performance, fit, and value for your snow sports endeavors. The Orsden Slope Pants don't compromise.
The Slope Pants feature the Orsden High Performance System, which is engineered to keep you dry and comfortable regardless of the conditions.
The Slope Pants are also constructed to be a rugged piece of clothing you won't soon replace.
- Adjustable waistband
- Stretchable snow gaiters
- Front closure with 2 buttons, zipper, and hook
- Reinforced knee insert
Additionally, specific details on the Slope Pants were developed with the needs of female and male skiers in mind.
Women's Pant Details
Men's Pant Details
We’ve worked with top activewear designers to get this right. The result is a clean, streamlined design that's responsive on the slopes due to the ultra premium stretch construction of both the shell and lining fabrics.
A key motivator for this project is helping you find your perfect fit, so we are offering 30 unique sizes.
Detailed size charts will be provided in the post-campaign survey.
We're starting with black as the only color for both styles. However, we may introduce more colors depending on the success of the campaign.
A comparable ski pant sold in a traditional retail model would be at least 50% more than our retail price of $200. Some high performance pants currently in market even cross the $500 mark. It’s time to stop overpaying for quality.
The Orsden Story
Orsden delivers high performance skiwear to all those who embrace the alpine life—from the slopes to après and beyond.
Our co-founders, Sara & Steven Segall, were shopping for new ski jackets at their home mountain in Vermont. Shocked by the price tags and uninspired by the outdated or unflattering designs, they saw an opportunity to make premium skiwear a more affordable luxury.
The result is Orsden. Our direct-to-consumer approach allows you to stop overpaying for quality skiwear. We believe 100% that our products deliver on our founding goal and hope you’ll agree.
Orsden's debut Winter 2016/2017 collection featured ski jackets for men & women and now we're expanding the product line with pants.
Slope Pants will ship Oct '17 in plenty of time for ski season
*Snood, t-shirt & jacket rewards available for immediate ship following the conclusion of the campaign.
The Orsden Team
Sara and Steven Segall, Orsden's co-founders, are avid skiers who have combined their love of the mountains with their extensive business backgrounds to create Orsden.
Steven is a lifelong skier from a family of skiers. Having raced on ski teams through college, he brings a technical, performance-based perspective on skiing to the brand. He also has over 10 years of finance and strategy experience.
Sara has the other side of the business covered, having worked in marketing for iconic fashion and consumer brands. She knows the labor and love it takes to bring a product through the entire lifecycle from idea to development to market. She represents the more recreational skier.
Our Supplier & Manufacturer
To produce high quality, technical products, we work with a trusted activewear manufacturer in Asia audited by the Fair Wear Foundation and Ethical Trading Initiative. We worked with the same manufacturer for our ski jackets, which were delivered on time and in excellent condition for the current ski season. We’ve also visited the factory where the garments are produced and seen the process first-hand as well as had it independently audited.
You will be contacted following the campaign for size selections and, if applicable, color choice.
Details on the Orsden Lift and Slope Jackets, including available colors and specs, can be found at orsden.com.
If you select the Double Black Diamond reward, additional communication and coordination will take place to craft the perfect pair of custom Orsden x Parlor Skis.
Free US shipping on all rewards, except the Double Black Diamond ($50). International shipping is only available on the Green Circle, Blue Square, and Black Diamond rewards and is $40 + any additional VATs or duties.
Risks and challenges
At this stage, we don't foresee any major production issues, risks or challenges that would jeopardize the pant availability on or before October 2017, in time for the 2017/2018 ski season. However, we recognize that unexpected issues can arise, so we promise to be transparent and to keep our backers updated on any potential delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
