The designs of team jackets and other uniform pieces that represent a country are always something for sports fans to admire, but now, Spyder is taking the importance of winterwear to the next level with connected jackets.

Spyder is set to add NFC technology to the US Ski Team's clothing collection, which will make it possible for skiers to connect with other team members and fans on social media. Initiating this action is as simple as pressing an NFC-enabled device against the company's logo on the connected jackets.

With this technology, recreational skiers and fans will be able to engage with the US Ski Team in real-time, exchanging location-based information, snow conditions, trail maps and other points of interest seamlessly with one another.
