MitchWAndrewso I hate to say this I love saga and I think there hackers are sick but I think there is a stereotype going on Idk If itís just in utah but itís bad I have talked to lots of people on park lifts always hating on the kids with saga jackets because most of those guys if I ask for advice on a trick lots of them will blow me off and it makes me mad plus all the time I hear if anyone has a saga jacket theyíre a park junkie deuche bag but who know it might just be me anyone else think this stereotype is going on?
icedNah id say lil kids wearing SAGA are getting a bad rep. Most snake people with a full SAGA kit. Dont do this and you are fine
JibberinoPunctuation. Learn it.
J_SWear what you want.. it's a sport not a fashion statement. As long as you're not skiing in a track suit you nobody will take the time to say anything
Saga.Well that is an unfortunate link for us. Nothing we can really do about so I guess we'll just keep making out outerwear and doing fun things with our friends that ski and snowboard.
theabortionatorI bought a shit ton of saga. 75-805 off? Fuck yeah. Idk about trends though and it hasn't turned me into a douche bag.
DIRTYBUBBLESaga was the shit up until a few seasons ago. A huge amount of little kids, and just people in general, began wearing it and their designs started to suck (Seriously fuck neon). I feel like they're seen as an outerwear company for kids, which is unfortunate because they're recent designs have been pretty dope.
Back in 2011 or 2012, Saga was really only worn by "the really good kids" in the park. Today's heavy hitters sport Tall T, Goodwill clothing, or "hypebeast" apparel such as Tommy Hilfiger, Champion, and Supreme. Yes I know that not every expert park skier will be exclusively rocking one of the aforementioned styles.
At the end of the day, clothing doesn't really matter. Being able to throw the fuck down in a floral Saga hoodie is just as respectable as being able to throw down in an Adidas track jacket.
cozzeyRespect to this.
Personally I've started to dislike the Saga designs in the past few years and I personally believe that their material quality has decreased. In the past two years I have had both Saga and Virtika pants for size comparisons. While I prefer the size and fit of the Saga bibs, the quality of them is lower then that of Virtika and many other brands.
This quality could be decreasing due to a lower price point, but lets be honest that these materials don't cost $300 to purchase and another $100 to make. Companies like Strafe and others are charging absurd prices for their outerwear, therefore making extreme profits, but also making very high quality gear. Which can profit the ski industry but most of us can't afford.
With my next pair of pants, I am not going to be purchasing Saga bibs unless the quality increases and they aren't a crazy neon pink color.
That is just my two cents though.. I'm sure most of the people agree that we are being charged too much for all of our outerwear.
Saga.Thanks for the words. You are correct, materials and production do not equal the final cost. You are forgetting that there are a lot of other costs that go into developing, producing and delivering any product. You have to account for your design team and staff that creates and ships the product, warehousing space, marketing expenses, etc. Also, it is extremely unlikely that 100% of every product produced sells. When calculating the final price of an item you take into account the amount that will be used for exchanges, returns, etc. There is also pricing the items competitively. If you price something too far below its competitors it can have a negative perception even if it is as good as the more expensive one.
Our primary goal with outerwear especially is to make as good of if not better pieces and be able to sell them at a lower cost because we primarily sell direct and are able to bypass costs that come with mass retail and distribution sales.

frickindarni ski because itís fun. Not because itís a fashion statement.
frickindarnIf you wanna wear yobeat jackets like I do
BASEDJAHIf you're gonna argue that you only ski for fun and not for fashion statements you probably shouldn't make fashion statements in your argument.
hot.pocketHoly cherry picking.
BASEDJAHfair, I just have a hard time believing that someone doesn't give a shit about ski fashion after they tell everyone on NS what clothes they wear to the hill
DieselChevysWho in 2017 still cares what they wear and look like?
DieselChevysI meant for skiing
OregonDeadSkiing is a fashion show
Mitch_7495Really this just comes down to personal preference. Yeah you see a lot of kids wearing it. I have owned a lot of saga stuff including waiting on a full kit to be shipped currently. Other brands make great stuff as well. I just enjoy their product and the price point isn't horrible. I like to support them because they have really good customer service (at least when I have had to deal with it). You ask them a question through social media and they respond pretty quickly. Everyone has their preferences and Saga is just my preference. You can hate them of love them but in the end it comes down to what the individual wants. If you like Saga stuff rock it, If you like Virtika rock it, If you like track pants, again rock it. Just my 2 cents.
jlens05You know you're more of a thuggie guy, you're just scared to admit it Mitch.
