Our Promise to you

100% comfort guarAntee™

Use your gear with the confidence of our 100% Comfort Guarantee™. If our products don't keep you comfortable then we failed our mission and we will make it right.

If you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, breathability, or overall performance, depending on the issue, we will repair, replace, or simply take back the gear and issue a refund*. All craftsmanship and any manufacturing defects are of course covered by our Lifetime Limited Warranty.



Our journey began with a singular mission:

craft the ultimate winter gear

We set out to harness the finest fabrics and manufacturing facilities to create the pinnacle of winter sports gear without being constrained by price points set by retailers. Every design decision was solely made around "we only want the best." We were able to create these products at a reasonable cost to you by eliminating retailers and retail markups and passing those savings on to you.

selecting the right partner


Based out of Japan, Toray International Inc. has a vertically integrated structure that gives them a unique ability to design and produce custom textiles that solve specific real world issues.Torain® & 3DeFX+ are garment concepts that bring together a unique combination of fabrics, membrane, seam tape, insulation and sewing technology for elite performance in a wide range of conditions and exertion levels paired with unmatched durability and longevity. This technology enables us to craft waterproof, windproof, and breathable products with long-lasting superior performance.

gear that moves with you

Stretch, Finally!!!

Waterproof, breathable, durable, and with STRETCH: these four attributes rarely coexist in premium outerwear. Our Legacy gear is able to adjust to your movements, not the other way around. We used an innovative fabric and technology combination from Toray International Inc. that is able to achieve all four of these qualities in a 3 layer construction. In the world of skiing and riding, movement and flexibility are essential yet, without stretch, many other brands have to resort to boxy, bulky designs, forcing you to adjust to the gear instead of it adapting to you. Limited space inside restricts your movements or sizing up creates unwanted bulk. We challenge you to do your research and compare our products to others on the market. There are only a few other premium brands that incorporate some form and various performance levels of stretch fabrics from Toray International Inc. and many of their products are exorbitantly priced (some as high as $1,500) due to middleman retail markups and premium brand up-charges. AKOVA is different. We offer you full range of motion without the hefty price tags.

the most advanced insulation

luxurious, warm, and breathable

When we started the designs with Julia she told us that she wanted a bulletproof exterior and a luxurious interior. Ultra breathable, stretch 3DeFX+ insulation, combined with Stunner Stretch fabric, creates the furnace and plush comfort on the inside of the jacket. The 3D spiral structure of 3DeFX+ enables unmatched stretch while providing exceptional warmth and breathability. Traditional fabric coatings are not needed with the 3DeFX+ insulation, thus eliminating the stuffiness associated with insulated jackets when you start sweating from working hard. Stunner Stretch fabric encapsulates this insulation, providing enduring durability, flexibility, and lush comfort making it perfect for demanding winter conditions.


3 Layer construction

Three meticulously crafted layers work together to provide unwavering waterproofing, windproofing, breathability, durability, and stretch for enduring performance.The outer fabric, both tough and lightweight, defends against tears and punctures, striking a balance between robustness and comfort.The groundbreaking 80x70 Denier Stretch Nylon 66 Primeflex by Toray International Inc. establishes a new industry standard, offering remarkable durability, stretch, and comfort. Beyond fabric, the proprietary sewing technology, specialized seam tapes, and custom backing material fortify construction, ensuring peak waterproofness and breathability, even in harsh conditions.


engineered to last longer

With Torain® our products are meticulously crafted to defy hydrolysis and last longer than conventional outdoor gear. Hydrolysis is the chemical breakdown that happens when water, whether from sweat, rain, or atmospheric moisture, interacts with a compound. Unlike traditional waterproof gear that employs resin materials vulnerable to hydrolysis, our designs ensure lasting durability. When hydrolysis takes hold the surface of the membrane either peels off or becomes sticky. At this point the waterproofness and breathability are compromised. Our hydrolysis-resistant solutions keep your gear intact and on the mountain longer.

Gear that endures, like our Legacy collection, is a sustainable choice by eliminating the need for frequent replacements due to compromised waterproofing, breathability, or overall product durability. Constantly producing more products with short life spans creates excess waste. Anything that can be recycled from non-durable products does still have an environmental effect to make it usable again. Anything that cannot be recycled ends up in a land fill. Creating rugged, high performance, long lasting products is an eco-conscious approach, aligning with our commitment to environmental responsibility.

We envision a circular commerce system that eliminates waste and pollution, giving used clothing a second life. Enter AKOVA RENEWED™️, our gear renewal program. It empowers customers to trade in their used gear, receive a 30% discount off their next purchase, and shop for quality used apparel.


go out no matter the weather

beyond the lab - understanding waterproof & breathability ratings


We traveled the world with Torain® prototypes, subjecting them to all conditions imaginable, from Julia Mancuso's free skiing to David Wise's rigorous training and competitions. We pushed the limits, testing the durability and the membrane. Torain® consistently delivered outstanding performance. Surprisingly, many fabrics we have tested with high lab ratings fell short in real mountain conditions. Lab tests aren't the whole story, and we've learned there's more to waterproof & breathable performance than ratings created in a sterile, controlled lab.

what you need, where you need it

purpose driven features

Thigh Pockets - More than meets the eye

Quick access

Our dual cargo pockets are positioned on the top of the thighs to offer superior accessibility and functionality compared to side cargo pockets. This location minimizes any swaying when your pockets are full, and the internal stretch mesh media pockets on both sides keep smaller items securely in place.

Recognizing that skiing and snowboarding often involve impacts on the sides of the thighs, this design relocates your belongings away from these impact zones, ensuring better protection for both your items and yourself. Furthermore, the right-side pocket features a tether attachment point, ideal for securing a radio, phone, or beacon.
