ARMADA PATERNOST INSULATED JACKET – PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Women’s Armada Paternost Insulated Jacket is inspired by a paternoster lake. This is one of a series of glacial lakes connected by a single stream or a braided stream system.

Style was at the forefront of the Patternost jacket but Armada did not compromise tech using Updated Ripstop Fabrics and 40g 90% Recycled Polyfill. Performance is ensured with Pit vents, YKK Zippers, and other features needed for a long day on the mountain.

In November 2002 the operation moved from a basement home office in Truckee, California to its own building in Costa Mesa, the beach city home to so many of the world’s biggest skate and surf brands. Athletes drove the company, with Eric Iberg on board as the first team manager. Co-founder Hans Smith joined to run the business and Tyson Hall, Tanner’s brother, jumped on as the company’s sales guy.
