Team of the Year 2022: FORLOH AllClima Softshell Clothing with RECCO
FORLOH is an American equipment company formed in 2020 with the express intention of bringing high-quality technology to the outdoor world. It’s at the forefront of apparel technology, and it does so with products that are 100% Made in America.
The company name is an acronym: For The Love of Hunting. It partners with multiple technology companies across many spectrums to bring American hunters many technologies never before seen in technical outerwear. In some cases, you are building your fabrics from scratch.
The AllClima Softshell clothing line features the company’s Airadigm fabric coating that repels water and wind while allowing moisture to escape from your own body. The collection also features built-in RECCO technology so professional rescuers can search for a hunter. RECCO technology is a worldwide standard that includes portable and helicopter-mounted detectors carried by rescue teams. The reflectors are not a replacement for personal avalanche transceivers, but they do not need to be turned on either, and they last a lifetime if not mechanically damaged.
We are biased, but we could change the company name to For the Love of American Hunters. MSRP: $399; forloh.com.
