Our friends at evo.com have written this guest post to introduce themselves and explain the connection between Oyuki and evo. It runs deep!

This winter, evo is proud to be the exclusive North American retailer for Oyuki. The evo crew has been traveling to Japan for many years to take in the amazing skiing, snowboarding and everything else the country has to offer, always leaving in awe. This is why we seek to share this experience with our customers through our evoTrip adventure travel vacations to Niseko, Hakuba, and Myoko, Japan. Oyuki’s deep connections to Japan’s mountains along with their fit into our core values is why we are so excited to partner with Oyuki.

The folks at Oyuki live and breathe winter, just like our team at evo, exhibiting one of our “Great 8” core value of “Credibility” - they know what skiers and snowboarders need, because they are skiers and snowboarders. This is reflected in the design of the products, which embody their mantra “simplicity is the key to functionality.” With ski gloves and mittens especially, we appreciate the sleek product designs that work well with outerwear, protect us from the elements and look good doing it. 

This simplicity is why the Pep Trigger Mitts are one of our favorite Oyuki mitts. Not only are we big fans of Pep Fujas, but we love the robust GORE-TEXÒ material and clean style. The trigger-mitt style is functional, while the insulation is plenty to keep your hands toasty. Not to mention, they’re designed and worm by one of our favorite skiers ever, Pep Fujas.

For women, we’re a big fan of the Chika Mitt for similar reasons, it’s simple in appearance but packs in all of the features a skier or snowboarder could ask for. The GORE-TEXÒ will keep your hands dry, but also breath so they don’t get hot and sweaty. The wrist straps, included on all Oyuki gloves and mitts, are also a nice add-on. These will be great for riders in colder climates here in North America like the East Coast and Colorado.
