SPRING SKIING WITH SARA
Sara Hector, an exceptional Swedish skier who competes at an elite level and actively participates in various sports, also indulges in her love for sailing during the summer in Sweden. She combines physical training with adventurous pursuits, relishing the beauty of nature. The demand for clothing that seamlessly transitions between everyday life and training, while ensuring comfort, has influenced Sara’s choice to rigorously test a specific range of garments during the winter and spring.
Now that the competition season has ended, it’s time for Sara to start training for the next season. This means that even higher demands are placed on all types of equipment used, including clothing that can withstand all types of weather regardless of where she is in the world.

Sara is an inspiring athlete and has made great strides in her career, participating in six world championships and three medals in the team competition in the years 2011, 2015 and 2021.
In 2022, Sara won an Olympic gold medal in giant slalom in Beijing, which was a huge achievement for her and her team.
Sara uses Varg clothes both for everyday life and for training, but also during all travel days when functionality and comfort are important.

Saras Spring Favorites
The ultimate packable lightweight jacket for modern adventurers that suits all four seasons.
Andenäs is a technical ’seasonless’ jacket with wool insulation made from recycled materials and featuring highly functional details such as reflective print on the sleeves and hood. The jacket also has practical pockets and a spacious back pocket that allows the jacket to be stored in itself when not in use.
”Tromsö are really crazy comfortable, so comfortable you’ll never want to put on jeans or anything again! They also work for so many occasions, from cross-country, to hiking, on the boat trip and even in town. So awesome!”
– Sara Hector
In order for Sara to be able to perform at the top level, she needs to have the right equipment. During the training period, it is especially important that the clothes are functional and comfortable while protecting her from the elements. It can be anything from light and ventilated clothes for warm days to warming and windproof clothes for cold and windy days.
Sara Hector’s passionate initiative to raise awareness of ALS research is truly inspiring. We at Varg are proud to support Sara’s passion and commitment in every way we can.
This year we were delighted to be able to support the Hector ALS Challenge as a sponsor, with great prizes for the winners of the competition. But we wanted to do even more to support this important cause, so we chose to donate 3% of our sales in the first ten days of April to ALS research. We hope that our involvement can help raise awareness and inspire more people to help fight this disease.
