La Sportiva calls the Athena a “tech-fashion” piece. That seems about right, considering the usefulness and wide assortment of colors. In fact, each skirt comes as two colors since the they are reversible*. This doubles your chance of matching while keeping important bits warm. The Athena 2.0 Skirt can be zipped on over ski pants or a base layer, adding a layer of Primaloft® insulation before, during, or after some fun. The entire skirt can be packed into a front zip pocket, making it easy to carry in your pack (the light weight doesn’t hurt either). The insulation is protected by 20 denier Ripstop nylon, and sealed with an advanced water-repellent coating. The La Sportiva Athena 2.0 is a functional, affordable, and fashionable skimo accessory.
* Note the first two photos (Blue Moon & Berry red) are the same skirt. As are the last two colors (Fjord blue & Papaya yellow). Just reverse the skirt to get the other color.
