    They primarily design technical apparel for snow sports. Aspen/Snowmass got sponsored by them recently, and all of the ski instructors bitch about the crappy quality of the clothes compared to the RLX that they used to get.

    RLX imo isn't that much better than HH. i have some HH gear for snowboarding, but also have some RLX. personally I switched all my stuff this year to Stoic.

    H/H is sort of middle-lower tier for technical outerwear. Better stuff (in general) is made by Patagonia, Burton, Arcteryx, Marmot, Outdoor Research, Ibex...

    Ugly shit, but very functional. When I was in AK, I wore bunch of their stuff, but Dutch Harbor wasn't the fashion central in the country.

    I have a raincoat type of dealio thing from them, but it's more of a function over form type of thing.

    great med-price snowsports stuff.
    i find it more functional than fashion.

    I love the Canadian brand Tiaga for snow-gear.
    Top-notch and fair priced.
