Many people are not aware of the great diversity that is within the Baffin brand. Baffin has built its name and reputation off of the amazing design and warmth of the polar proven boots and apparel however Baffin is so much more than just a winter clothing line. Baffin prides itself on integrating new techniques and designs, using new sciences and methods to create the absolute best products. As a part of this exploration Baffin is always looking for new tasks and possibilities to yet again astonish its consumers.

In this particular article we will be analyzing a product Baffin created specifically for their outdoor water athletes. We will be taking a look at one of the products from Baffin’s “trail to rapids” line. The Baffin BVI is a shoe specifically created for outdoor adventurers. This particular shoe is made up of 6 different layers the first of which is the upper layer. This layer is made up of a ventilated mesh that provides ultimate breathability. Layer 1, is a removable water channeling system that allows the drainage of water. Layer 2 is a nylon layer that allows water and air to travel through with ease. Layer 3 is a metallic grid that was created to stop stones and grit from entering into the shoe. Layer 4 is an ultra light midsole that provides cushioning and acts as a primary defense. The sixth and final layer is the rugged sole, which was designed specifically to give the athlete added traction.

This is just on example of the lengths that Baffin goes to, to create the absolute best products for their customers. Here is a testimony from a happy Baffin customer who purchased the Baffin BVI shoe.

You might remember back in August Baffin travelled down to Salt Lake City for the Summer Outdoor Retailer tradeshow!

While we were there we were able to head up to Park City TV and share a few of our new products on the Mountain Morning show! Checkout Jeff’s segment in a previous blog post here!

So…when heading to the Winter Outdoor Retailer last month we couldn’t resist making the trip back to Park City…this time not to show new product but to talk about what we know best — producing and testing cold weather boots and apparel in extreme conditions!

Here’s a clip from Mark’s segment on Mountain Morning where he talks about an upcoming expedition to climb Mount Logan! – The World’s Largest Mountain and Canada’s Tallest Peak!  Check it out!

As some of you may know, it is an exciting time for us here at Baffin! With a revamped office, some cool new products being launched this season, this brand new blog, and so much more, Fall/Winter 2013 = Baffin 2.0!

Here is a sneak peak into the launch of Baffin’s upcoming project – We Are Baffin!

We have partnered with a small and very diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts who we believe represent what truly living the brand is and what we consider to be individuals who are leaders within the outdoor industry!

One of the individuals we are very excited to have as part of our team is Ward Luthi!

Ward, among many other things, runs the adventure travel company – Walking The World – and lives for a life outdoors!

Here’s a sneak peak from Ward’s latest trip to Norway!
