I'm looking for an independent ski brand that specializes in making custom ski pants and jackets. Any help?

Someone showed me this independent ski company that specializes in making jackets and pants. Apparently they're really nice and affordable. I think the company name started with an F..

 

I'll try to explain it the best I can..You can get a jacket and pant combo for 200 dollars right now on sale. I know the jacket has removable sleeves and the pants have a removable bib. Also, you can customize the jacket and pants too look a little like crooked stripes or triangles of two different colors. You can make the two match and it looks really nice..

 

The site has an interactive customization option where you can create and ship your own pant/jacket combo for 200 plus shipping. I've seen pictures of pros using this gear and it looks awesome and warm. I want to do more research on the brand but cant for the life of me think of the brand..

 

Anyone know what I'm talking about? Remember, its not a well known brand, but very nice none the less.

Why do you say its garbage? It seems like everyone loves it. And the features it comes with are incredible.

No, everyone does not love it. It's key market mostly laughs at it's quality. And the "features" are pretty lame. I guess if you just want some unoriginal costume to wear on any day other than ones where there is actual weather, then it is fine.

You're thinking of their product when they first started out around 2009. Awful looking, and terrible material. Looked like people were wearing a soggy paper mosaic project.

 

Their 2012 product is top quality and easily competes with any other big name out there. Look up the specs if you still don't think so.

Another company to look at. Just heard about them last night. Interesting idea offering a custom made to order jacket. http://www.nwt3k.com/
