Releasing this Thursday, August 28th, at FITTED (in-store and online) and Blue Hawaii Surf.
This Thursday we are releasing another stand-out piece from our Waiʻaleʻale collection. Designed and customized from the ground up using our own in-house specs, we present a new lightweight, breathable windbreaker—aptly named Ahu Laʻi as a nod to the ti leaf rain coats used in ancient Hawaiʻi.
The Waiʻaleʻale Ahu Laʻi is made up of a lightweight nylon rip-stop material, featuring an all-over sublimated print of the Waiʻaleʻale pattern. Trilock accents are seen throughout, including the adjustable velcro closure on the wrists and the stitching on the back ventilation flap, which adds breathability. It also features adjustable drawcords at the waist and hood to help achieve the perfect fit. Waterproof reverse zippers are used for the full body and lower front pockets, as well as an upper left front stash pocket. Our Military Spec label is patched on the lower left front pocket while our crest is stitched in white on the upper left chest area. Our Nihi logo is also printed on the back of the neck area in white.
Along with the Ahu Laʻi, we will also be releasing another FITTED + Blue Hawaii Surf Waiʻaleʻale Aloha tee, this time in black with white front outline around the Waiʻaleʻale pattern and white back print.
The Waiʻaleʻale Ahu Laʻi Windbreaker and FITTED + Blue Hawaii Surf Waiʻaleʻale Aloha Tee will be available this Thursday exclusively at FITTED (in-store and online) and at Blue Hawaii Surf.

Please note, the Ahu Laʻi Windbreaker is not water-resistant or waterproof. It’s made out of a very lightweight rip-stop fabric that’s meant to cut down the wind while still allowing it to be breathable under the hot Hawaiian sun.
