Flirting with the Great Outdoors

Fall/Winter 2010 Heats up with ISIS For Women’s Newest Line of Jackets

By Lynn N. Capri
ISIS For Women is the only brand of outdoor clothing developed by women and geared entirely towards the adventurous woman’s needs. Just because a woman enjoys living a physical life doesn’t mean she has to wear boring clothes. Ditch the plainly colored, unfitted, and unattractive outfits and put on something stylish yet functional!

Inspired by nature and activities that take advantage of it, and made with a mixture of technical fabrics and comfortable, stylish features, ISIS For Women has become one of the top contenders in the outdoor apparel market. You don’t have to be climbing the world’s highest peaks, either, to wear ISIS ~ it’s perfect for playing in the snow with the grandkids or taking the dog for a brisk hike during the winter months. style-isis-for-women3-copy

The Nirvana Jacket is all you’ll need to brave New England’s unpredictable weather. Made from guaranteed waterproof material, it provides breathable protection from the elements so the day can be enjoyed whether it’s rain or shine. An ultra-thin polyurethane membrane is laminated to a high performance nylon shell to create a fabric that will keep the raindrops rolling off and the wearer warm and snug. The jacket comes with many special features that make it a better fit ~ an adjustable hood, sleeve pocket, microfleece-lined zip hand pockets so fingers stay toasty, and even an internal security zip pocket so the important things stay safe and dry.  If you like to snowshoe, this jacket may be just the thing.

It’s impossible to not be delighted with the Dee-liteful Coat! It’s got a shaped fit and is made from 100% recycled fabric that is windproof, water-repellent, and silky-soft to the touch. Down is a unique natural insulator and provides plenty of warmth without being heavy or stiff. It’s a great space saver, too ~ scrunch it up and when you need it next, just give it a shake back into its original shape ~ how perfect for Fall weekend getaways! style-isis-for-women-copy

Try the Topo Hoodie, too, as the weather turns chilly ~ it’s designed to block out the chill without making you unbearably hot. It’s made with luxurious textured fleece that is super soft to the touch and warm enough to combat those chilly days. With details like reverse roll-out textured fleece, hem and sleeve openings, and zippered hand pockets, it’s so comfortable you’ll never want to take it off. Wear it for after-dinner walk and stay nice and snuggly.

ISIS doesn’t just work to meet women’s outdoor apparel needs; they’re major supporters of the Breast Cancer Fund and outfit women yearly for “Climb Against the Odds” trips which raise money for the organization.
