We’ve been a big fan of Aether’s jackets ever since they came onto our radar. We love any company seeking to push function and aesthetics (no shocker here) and these guys are one of the best. We also love a good riding video as much as anyone else, and they really did this one right.
The Aether co-founders Jonah Smith and Palmer West set out this past April to chase winter and the last of the snow up into the Rockies. They rode from Telluride, Colorado, to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and stopped at every major ski resort along the way. Their motorcycles, BMW GS’s, were specially modified to carry their ski and snowboard gear, including one which was rigged for a side car setup.
They were joined by Raphael Bertolus of Rawhyde Adventures and Davide Berruto of Shelter Half. The whole gang completed the trip wearing Aether gear (in case you were wondering how the gear holds up), specifically the Canyon Motorcycle Jacket, Skyline Motorcycle Jacket, Altitude ski jacket, Apex snow pant, and more from the line.
