Who Is Black Yak?
BLACK YAK is a high-performance outdoor apparel company based in Seoul South Korea. They’ve designed an award-winning collection for the western market out of Europe, which has finally made its way to North America.
Their wide range of gear features premium, industry-disrupting products made from mixed materials that protect against the cold, wet, and wind.
They recently took home a whopping 16 ISPO Awards for its innovative outerwear. The first global collection from BLACK YAK took over two years to develop. The goal: to enter the market with real innovations and independent designs.
The decisions made by the ISPO AWARD jury proved that the goal has been achieved. “Never before in the history of the ISPO AWARDs did one single brand win so many awards in one single year. We were obviously able to set a new benchmark”, said Nortz. In the category “Product Global”, BLACK YAK was awarded four “Gold Winners”.
The Hooded Active Down Jacket won the gold prize, a light and yet robust down-filled jacket, as well as the Light Down Insulation Stretch Jacket, a very light double-layered jacket which doesn’t limit the wearer’s mobility, but still keeps the body warm thanks to the strategically placed down chambers.
