Randall Breitenbach and Imani Lanier, the founders of Coldsmoke Apparel, know a thing or two about outdoor adventures. Based out of Venice, California with roots in Whistler, the advanced sportswear brand is the latest offshoot of Coldsmoke Co., an outdoors-focused holding company with subsidiaries that include Coldsmoke Magazine, Smoke Signal Avalanche Recovery and Powder Mt. Heli-Skiing. That background infuses Coldsmoke apparel with an authenticity readily apparent in the cutting edge technology and classic military and workwear influences that define the brand. Launched in 2012, the Coldsmoke team sought out the most well-regarded performance fabric mills and respected finishing companies in Japan to create jackets, sweaters, fleece and button-down shirts that are equal parts functional and stylish, performing at the highest level whether you’re on or off the mountain. For Fall 2013, look for a smart selection of goose down and three-layer waterproof guide jackets, quilted Melton wool button-downs, and Japanese knit French terry crew tops, all inspired by the ancient Inuit cultures of the Arctic.
