Mercury Jacket and Pant, has been honored with the 2013 Backpacker Magazine Editors’ Choice Award. This product award is one of the most prestigious in the outdoor industry, given annually in recognition of outstanding innovation in design, materials and performance.
Backpacker Editor-In-Chief Dennis Lewon and his staff of editors and
testers presented the Dynafit Mercury Jacket and Pant with the award at
the annual Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah on
Thursday, August 1st .
The Backpacker Editors’ Choice Award, bestowed annually since 1993,
honors the products that Backpacker editors have chosen as the best of
the year based on months of winter ski testing by teams of highly
experienced skiers and winter thrill seekers. With no set categories for
the awards and no set number of recipients, the products and the
testing process drive the award categories.
“At any price, their ideal combination of weather protection,
breathability, and durability would make them attractive to backcountry
skiers and snowshoers”, said Backpacker apparel test manger Kelly
Bastone. “But the pieces’ extraordinary value was what really clinched
their award status. We felt that the performance they offered equaled
(or exceeded) the many higher-priced softshells we tested”.
The Mercury softshell Jacket and Pant, new for Winter ’13, brings all
of Dynafit’s technology into one ambitious backcountry focused kit. The
Mercury Jacket and Pant proved durable through a full season of abuse.
One wearer sums it up “They’re tough and protective, yet light enough
for strenuous tours”. Together with its wind resistance, weight (595g)
and abrasion resistant fabric, the Mercury collection is redefining how
we approach the mountains.
