PAKA Wins Retail Innovation Award with PAKAFILL

Paka Apparel was announced as a winner of the fifth annual Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards during the recently completed event in Salt Lake City. Paka Apparel received the award for its registered PAKAFILL insulation, which the company claims to be “warmer than any synthetic insulation currently on the marketplace.”

Half the volume of down, PAKAFILL insulation keeps the wearer warm when wet and thermoregulates from freezing temperatures to high aerobic activity to keep the wearer in a neutral comfort range. PAKAFILL insulation is 100 percent hypoallergenic.

Winners were chosen by a judging panel from 29 finalist products, materials and services representing original design, function, impact and inspiring attributes.

This is the first major innovation award Paka Apparel has received since launching PAKAFILL in December in conjunction with Paka’s PAKAFILL Puffer – ethical insulation packed into an all-in-one layer. PAKAFILL Puffer has become one of the hottest outwear launches in recent years, designed for extreme performance that rivals premium outerwear on the market. Field tested at more than 22,205 feet, the PAKAFILL Puffer’s innovation and design has been recognized and praised.
