ADRENALINE PROOF POLARTEC X TETON GRAVITY RESEARCH

For nearly three decades, Teton Gravity Research (TGR) has been renowned for its captivating storytelling in the realm of extreme sports. Constantly redefining the limits of high-octane filmmaking, TGR captures the true essence of adrenaline-pumping pleasure and stands as a beacon of excellence in the industry. This same thrill of exploration drives TGR Supply as it evolves into a dynamic force in the world of technical apparel and accessories. At the heart of it all lies TGR’s unwavering commitment to quality and performance, which is why the Wyoming-based company is leveraging its collaboration with Polartec to deliver increasingly technical products that exceed expectations.

“As a global leader in technical fabrics, Polartec is 100% aligned with Teton Gravity Research’s values of bringing stoke to the outdoor community through athlete-focused innovation and sustainability.”

Riding High on Innovation and Expansion

Famous for capturing the sickest action in snow, dirt and the ocean, TGR pushes the limits every day in the wild. This is why they take Polartec fabrics on filming expeditions around the world to protect their crews and athletes thanks to the diverse offering that provides proven technical performance in all conditions – including cozy aprés ski styles when the day is done.

Fast forward to TGR Supply, which has grown from its humble beginnings of offering tees, hats, hoodies, and beanies, to spearheading an expanded range of products designed to meet the demands of the most modern adventurer. From cutting-edge backcountry packs to technical midlayers and more, its product lineup merges innovation with technical excellence. 

Just look at TGR’s all-terrain expedition grade weatherproof layer that’s designed to go rogue: the Polartec® x TGR Rogue Elements Jacket. Featuring Polartec® Power Shield™, a waterproof, windproof and highly breathable fabric technology made from plant-based and non PFAS materials, this absurdly sweet shell doubles as a go-to spring outer layer or a mid-layer windbreaker.

What makes Polartec® Power Shield™ so special? Sure, it’s made with 48% Biolon™*, a renewable, non-GMO plant-based nylon** with a 50% lower carbon footprint than fossil fuel-based nylons, which is great in and of itself. But the real added value is that this amazing membrane has a water resistance rating of 20K mm (ISO 811) and a breathability rating of 20K g/m2/24 hours (JIS L1099, B1), which means it can stand up to just about anything – making it the perfect choice for dirtbags and action enthusiasts alike.

Homespun Magic with Kai Jones

Since making his film debut at age 11 shredding lines and teeing off huge airs in the Teton mountains he calls home,  award-winning freeskiing prodigy Kai Jones hasn’t stopped pounding out big descents and perfecting what some would call near-supernatural skiing skills. And when he’s not ripping some of the continent’s most wicked vertical edges, or being nominated for Standout Male Rider of the Year, Kai is most likely crushing 12,000 foot mountains, biking his backwoods backyard, surfing or (just) skateboarding.

So we asked him, straight out: what part of his kit can handle pretty much anything, everywhere, fall, winter or spring? Continuum, as in the Polartec x TGR Continuum ¼ Zip and Full Zip Hoodies. “These ready-for-anything staples are stretchy, versatile and wickedly comfortable,” Kai explains. No surprise here. The patented grid construction of its Polartec® Power Grid™ fleece delivers increased warmth and breathability while reducing fabric mass for maximum performance that won’t weigh you down. The unique geometric grid pattern also improves compressibility and wicking, with a technical style that’s perfect for a superstar grom like Kai.
