Faction’s products are the result of who they are as people: a mix of European dedication to detail and decades of mountaineering history: a North American sensibility of freedom of expression: and an Antipodean touch of style.
Faction, believe that by applying innovative design solutions to traditional manufacturing techniques they can make better products for skiers everywhere. Ten years on, Faction are along way from where they started but their manifesto remains the same.
Design the skis they want to use.
Handcraft them with love.
Build them to last.
FACTION APPAREL DIVISON
For 2015/16, with three apparel collections behind them, Faction’s outerwear is more refined, versatile and innovative than ever before.
The Faction Lab Series has been designed to perform. Totally redeveloped no detail has been left to chance; from refined fits to upgraded fabrics you are looking at a whole new line. Pieces that will appeal to the dedicated mountain man through to the style conscious backcountry freestyler, the upgraded Lab series will stand out against the competition.
Each piece in the extended Men’s Lab series is now mirrored by a women’s piece; built with the conscientious female skier in mind who demands top performance coupled with superior style.
Lab Series Jacket Highlight MEN’s: DARWIN AEROGEL JACKET
Faction’s favourite 3-layer shell has got even better. Combine 20,000mm/20,000br Toray Dermizax fabric with Aerogel insulation and the Darwin Jacket is your new best friend. Developed by NASA, Aerogel insulation offers superior thermal insulation (think warm and dry) at a fraction of the thickness and weight of any other insulation out there. It’s simple: stay warm, stay dry, have fun.
Lab Series Pant Highlight MEN’s: EDISON AEROGEL PANT
This technical pant features 3L Toray Dermizax 20,000mm/20,000br with Stunner Stretch technology for movement, and 100% sealed seams, Recco reflectors, a detachable bib with pockets, suspenders and now with thigh pockets to store extra snacks or cash for the bar. Available with Aerogel technology in all colourways, the NASA developed technology offers superior warmth at a fraction of the thickness and weight of any other insulator on the market.

Available with aerogel technology in all colourways, the NASA-developed technology adds, lightweight insulation that is a fraction of the thickness of traditional insulators in key panels for the ultimate shell.

Aerogel technology is placed in specific panels, this NASA developed insulation has superior thermal qualities at a fraction of the thickness and weight of traditional insulators.
The Faction Elemental series just got interesting. Redefining the lower performance bracket by bringing in a whole new story, so that it no longer competes with big brands but stands alone in a unique category. Street styled outerwear that performs in the mountains but will be worn all year long on the city streets. New XERO fabric technology has allowed Faction to improve not only on mountain performance but fit and feel, creating a line that is unlike anything else in the market right now.
Elemental Series Jacket Highlight MENS:
The Hudson riding shirt with a combination of Xero2 and Xero3 fabric is a hard working.
For days when a jacket on the mountain is overkill, or for meeting up with a Tinder match at the local café, don the Hudson Riding shirt. This is not your average mountain-man flannel shirt; a combination of Xero2 and Xero3 fabric works to keep your shoulders dry and warm while your body stays dry and cool. A shirttail hem, snap or zipper closure and a quilted feel make you street or mountain ready in a flash.
Elemental Series Jacket Highlight WOMEN’S:
The Popova jacket is a real crossover piece that harks back to the pullovers of our youth. With a colour palette that goes from 80’s pop to muted neutrals, the cotton fabric feel, longer length and oversized hood feels street savvy, whilst the Xero2 technology 8,000mm/5,000br ensures performance on the mountain.
Elemental Series Pant Highlight WOMEN’S:
The Bly pant has a progressive fit that is modern and stylish, the fleece backing is incredibly soft and comfortable and 4-way stretch of the Xero3 10,000mm/10,000br fabric allows ease of movement whilst protecting against the elements.
