About this project
Can't find the perfect running and activewear jacket?
When Kevin Zhu moved to Vancouver from China last summer, he was excited to live in a city where running and being active was as popular as Starbucks. When he discovered the running trails along the beaches of West Vancouver, he set out to buy the ultimate running jacket, but couldn’t find anything that came close. He wanted something versatile with modern, built-in features, that didn't compromise performance or comfort.
With 20 years of experience as a producer and designer for women’s fashion brands across Europe, Kevin set out to create what he believes is the perfect running/activewear jacket for women AND men...enter the Merino Contour Jacket.
The Magic of Merino
The Merino Contour Jacket is made up of 85% pure Merino wool; a natural, renewable and biodegradable material that’s 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. With a much lower percentage of synthetic fibres than its competitors, our jacket focuses on the natural without sacrificing quality, performance and style.
Comfort AND Function
Worried about carrying too much stuff? Or not being able to carry what you need? Beat the bulk with secure inside pockets for your smartphone, keys and must-haves. Torn between wanting to be comfortable and wanting to look great? This jacket is perfectly detailed for comfort without compromising style.
The jacket is loaded with fine details including:
- self-sealing inside pockets for keys, cards or other valuables
- glove-fitted sleeves
- waterproof zippers
- a microfibre cloth for your glasses
Bring on the Beats
Turn up the tunes without getting wrapped up in wires! Secure eyelets allow your earbuds to stay in place while you move.
Move easily from the running trails to a coffee catch-up in style. This jacket has you covered from indoors to outdoors and back.
We have applied the best finishing to our jacket to make it naturally water-resistant (no coating at backside).

Please Support Our Project
We handpick only the best Merino yarn 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 fabric creation process takes about 2 months, with jacket production taking another 3-4 weeks. The whole production process takes up to 3 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.
Our Merino Contour Jacket is just the beginning. With your support we can rapidly produce and manufacture a line of functional and comfortable active wear clothing.

Risks and challenges
Although we have a track record of producing and delivering clothing apparel, this is our first product we're creating directly to consumers for the activewear market. 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.
