Risks and challenges

The Pioneer II jacket has been through 8 prototypes over the last three years. Through that time I have been coached by business experts and built up a great relationship with the ladies who make the jackets.

The current design for the SKAPYA Pioneer II Jacket has been finalised and the initial prototypes have been built and tested by outdoor professionals.

The ladies at Mountain Method and I have already laid out our future production plan and expect the fabric to be delivered MID NOVEMBER. The fabric manufacturers have promised to meet this deadline. Any delay in the fabric delivery will delay the delivery times.

The zips and components are already in Cumbria, waiting.

Fiona, Rachel and Mary are artists and they are dependable manufacturers, just down the road from where I live. I regularly pick up the phone and chat to them and am always hanging out for another trip down to see them with more biscuits.

I will send frequent updates to keep you up to date with the production of the jackets.
