EMPHASIZING THE BEST PERFORMANCE IN DAILY LIFE ACTIVITIES

The Storm BreakerƏ1 Jacket is the first jacket designed byLTEKS. It is part of ADAPT+, which is LTEKS’ technology platform that emphasizes the best performance in modern city life.

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF FASHION AND TECHNOLOGY

Highly mobile consumers in dynamic environments require technologies that anticipate, ADAPT, and deliver seamless mastery in any situation. ADAPT+ is LTEKS’s technology platform. The LTEKS design ethos of “form defines – not follows – function” employs simplicity with intricate details. It takes the user through a visual course full of exciting palettes and elegant designs. The outcome of this philosophy is ADAPT+. It places users at the center of the LTEKS experience: whether it’d be a utility pouch, a reinforced collar to intuitively deploy the zip funnel hood, or numerous pockets for improved storage –  the design focuses on human factors using kinematic patterns to offer a maximum of protection, control, comfort, and freedom of mobility in every moment.

The first Korean outdoor label Kolon Sport started operating in 1973. In 2006, the brand launched a new line named LTEKS as a challenge to develop tech-advanced apparel to equip polar adventurers, explorers, climbers, and anyone exposed to extreme environments. 14 years later, LTEKS kicked off inheriting the legacy of LTEKS but instead of focusing on survival in harsh environmental conditions, LTEKS emphasizes the best performance in modern city life.

AESTHETICS WITHOUT DISRUPTIONS

The Storm BreakerƏ1 Jacket is part of LTEKS Edition01 collection. Its design is the result of over 10 years of research and developments by LTEKS and over 40 years of knowledge at Kolon Sport. The simple design of the Storm BreakerƏ1 Jacket camouflages the outdoor heritage without losing any of its innovative features.

TECHNOLOGY THAT MERGES INTO FASHION

The innovative shell jacket comes with an ADAPT+ utility pouch, a reinforced collar to intuitively deploy the zip funnel hood, and numerous pockets for improved storage. Equipped with the latest GORE-TEX PRO technology, the jacket is designed to be extremely breathable and comes with the ultimate GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise.

INCREASED PROTECTION MEETS INCREASED SUSTAINABILITY

The new GORE-TEX PRO technologies have been relentlessly tested in our lab, they are made to withstand even the most extreme situations. These advanced technologies also come in the form of recycled and solution-dyed fabrics that reduce water usage and CO2 emissions, creating an even lower environmental footprint.

I believe GORE-TEX is evolving and adapting for a new era of consumers. As the industry is over-crowded with so many brands and products, GORE-TEX can speak for itself, and differentiate from its competitors. GORE-TEX is providing a clear distinction from other materials being used in fashion. GORE-TEX is adaptable, sustainable and protective, and that is now a clear statement in fashion, which provides omething more than just patterns and design.
