Jasper shops have the perfect items to take you from summer to fall. Shop for practical jackets, on-trend dresses and durable sports shoes.
The 100% waterproof and breathable Fuse-Form jacket from The North Face is built for adventure. Dave MacDowell at Wild Mountain says fused materials make it thicker in high-wear areas like shoulders where pack straps rub against the fabric, while fewer seams allow for more movement. This jacket offers protection when you need it, but is light and compact enough to stash in your pack when you don’t. Peruse Jasper’s outdoor shops for their vast array of apparel and gear.
Find runway-inspired apparel at Jasper clothing shops. Go for vivid colour and versatility with a Toad & Co. Rosemarie dress from Mountain Air; it pairs with sneakers or heels! Bombshell offers floral prints in this season’s slinky slip-on style, while Lolë’s Sophie dress balances fit and flare perfectly.
Your shoes should keep up with your adventures. Get into these ready-for-anything sports shoes.
