Merino Tech 2.0: The Minimal and 360 Hoodie

CA$ 156,609

The Merino Tech Line 2.0 is designed for the active, urban and nature dweller. They are busy people making their way through the hustle and bustle to work during the weekdays, exploring in the city or wilderness on the weekend. On cozy Winter days, you can find them in coffee shops, reading a book or the newspaper, sipping on their daily joe. Or perhaps, you will find them lying on the grass with the sun beaming on their freckles on a bright, windy summer afternoon. The Merino Tech Line 2.0 is made for those who make the most of each season.

The 360

Created for the adventurers. Whether you're climbing a mountain in the winter or camping in the summer, The 360 has you covered every step of each day.

The Minimal

Designed for the weekday warriors, commuting to work and being swift in the process. It is designed with simplicity in mind but functionality at heart. Let The Minimal guide your journey work to date night.

Special Note: after discussing with backers, there will be an optional detachable hood (lined with Merino wool, and with hidden magnets) offered for The Minimal Jackets

The Magic of Merino + High Tech Nylon

The Merino Tech 2.0 line is made up of 70% pure Merino wool + high-tech stretchy and water-proof nylon fabric; merino wool is a natural, renewable and biodegradable material that is great for the environment, The natural fibres are lightweight, soft and breathable allowing you to perform in comfort. Merino adapts to your body temperature keeping you warm or cool all year round. A true no-fuss material, Merino wool is odour resistant, machine washable, and can be simply hung for a day to restore its freshness.

Please Support Our Project

We handpick only the best Merino yarn and Hi-tech Nylon with critical technical properties. And to ensure the best possible quality, we pick the yarn, dye it, and weave it into final fabric ourselves. The entire creation process takes about two months, with jacket production taking an additional three to four weeks. The whole manufacturing process takes up to three months. It's a painstaking process, but the only way we can ensure a perfect final product! We plan to start shipping jackets to our supporters in June.

We already run a successful campaign The Ultimate Merino Running Jacket and have got 100% positive feedback! So the risk for this Merino Tech 2.0 line is minimal. With your support, we can rapidly produce and manufacture more functional and comfortable active wear clothing and accessories.

Stay in Touch

We want to hear from you! Follow our updates here and connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also send us questions and comments on our Website!

Warranty

1) We accept returns or exchanges if the garment is not dirty or damaged;

2) The customer shall pay the courier cost of sending back the garments to us; we will pay for the courier cost of sending the new garments.

*Please note: Kick-starter campaigns do not offer returns as the price is already a discounted price compared with regular retail price. However, we will offer returns for our community.

Risks and challenges

Although we have a successful track record of producing and delivering clothing apparel, we are still in the early stages of producing an activewear line. This project will support our efforts to develop and create a more pure, natural blend of Merino wool activewear, with detailing that we think is important for everyday use and comfort. Thank you for your support!
