Apres Performance started with the belief that everyone should have a unique style and identity on the mountain. We spent a year testing the fit and features of our prototypes. Now, we need your help to bring the ski suit to life!
The World’s First Personalized Ski Suit.
We've developed a ski suit that can be personalized with fun styles to give you a truly unique look on the mountain. You choose one of our design templates and pick from our color options to fill it in and make the suit yours. (Note: we'll collect your design, color and size preferences after our Kickstarer funds!)
13 innovative features.
Includes a retractable hood, smart pockets, arm and leg vents along with other design features built for comfort, convenience, and fun. We even included a pocket to keep your flask safe!
A more comfortable day on the mountain.
The suits are made from a high tech windproof, water resistant, breathable, lightweight and stretchy Polartec® fabric. The one-piece suit holds onto body heat on cold days while the arm and leg vents allow you to regulate body temperature as needed. The breathability of our fabric expels body moisture and the stretchiness allows room to layer up on colder days.
Apres Performance suits are designed to make you look good! The suits are cut to give you an athletic looking fit. Our design templates and bold colors help you become the best dressed skier or snowboarder on the mountain!
Apres works with independent apparel designers to come up with the coolest looks. Then we hand it off to you to pick your favorite colors and make the suit yours!
We spent countless hours perfecting a ski suit with a versatile and athletic fit. We're using a fabric blended with spandex to give the right amount of stretch. The stretch allows you to comfortably bend your knees or add layers underneath on colder days. We've also incorporated an adjustable belt to allow you to make the waist fit right for you.
We designed 13 innovative features to make your life on the mountain easy and fun.
The apparel industry is the second most polluting industry behind the oil industry. We reuse fabrics pieces during our production process in order to eliminate waste. Our suit is also made from sustainable materials.
At the end of the campaign, backers who receive ski suits will be sent a survey with the option to choose which colors and patterns we’ll initially offer for The Personalized All-Mountain Ski Suit. If we’re able to hit stretch goals, we’ll be able to add more color and pattern variety to our ski suit options.
In addition, Apres is offering two options for those who require a higher degree of customization. For a larger donation, you can work with one of our apparel designers to create your own suit pattern or develop a custom arm patch.
Use of Funding
All proceeds from our campaign will go directly into the production of our first batch of ski suits!
We promise that you'll love your Apres Performance ski suit. We'll do whatever it takes to make you 100% happy with any order you place with us.
Risks and challenges
We’ve tried to think of as much as possible before launching our kickstarter to mitigate any potential challenges. We’ve also found the best partners in the industry like Johnny’s Fashion, Create a Maker, and Polartec to help us deliver the highest quality product. However, doing something new always has its risks and challenges!
Timing is the biggest risk. We want to get input from our supporters on the fabric colors they want us to order. It will take approximately 2 months to receive fabrics once colors are determined. In the best-case scenario, we will have fabric, zippers, elastics, velcro and patches in hand by the end of July to begin manufacturing. In addition, we have factory minimums so the bigger our supporter base grows the better we’ll be able manage our manufacturing partners.
Note that what you’re seeing on our page are prototypes, so expect the final product to be more polished and of supreme quality. We'll let you know if/when any bumps arise, but we’re confident you’ll have your ski suit before the 1st snowfall. Rest assured we’re working hard to make this a great experience for everyone that takes part in our campaign!
