Style meets functionality for the 2018 USA Winter Olympians, thanks to the vision of Ralph Lauren.

USA luge star and Remsen native Erin Hamlin will soon be representing our region and our country in the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea. The uniforms that Hamlin and her fellow Olympians will wear to the opening ceremonies on February 9th were unveiled, and they are really cool.

Here's a sneak peak at some of our top Olympic athletes modeling the unique Ralph Lauren creations in a first look provided by USA Today's video on their YouTube page:

The parkas come equipped with battery packs and three different settings of warmth that will provide heat to the athletes for up to 11 hours at a time.

They're just part of the uniform Team USA will rock in South Korea. They'll also have bomber jackets, brown suede gloves with fringe, special blue jeans, sweaters, hats, scarves, and mountaineering boots with red laces--all part of the unique Ralph Lauren design.

So, before you watch Erin Hamlin or any of the other U.S. athletes slip, slide or fly their way toward gold, you'll see them wearing cool red, white and blue.
