Why are we so confident? We've already been wearing the apricoat for a little while, and we know just how great it is. We also have our post-campaign map already handled, and we're working with experienced partners that tell us what to expect. Not to mention (OK, we'll mention it) one of our co-founders is an experienced textile manufacturer with over 5 years of experience doing just this in a variety of ways.

We've also tested Apricoat all over the world, so we're confident no matter where you are, you'll be quite pleased with it. 

Apricoat comes fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship with a 1 year guarantee. Damage caused by improper use is not covered.

 

 

 

                             

 We've sourced some awesome gear to include in a fully loaded apricoat. They arrive already snug in their respective pockets. That way you can just put it on and get exploring.

 

 

 

 

 Please note: The measurements below are of the jacket itself, measured whilst flat. In order to find your size follow the instructions below.

How to measure

Back length (center): Measure from neck down to the end of the back. Make sure the tape measure is leveled and firm against the body.

Chest width: Measure at the fullest part of your chest, under the armpits and over the shoulder blades. Measure across your chest, not around it. Make sure the tape measure is leveled and firm against the body.

Waist width: Measure across your waist, not around it. Make sure the tape measure is leveled and firm against the body.

Sleeve length (from shoulder): Measure from top of your shoulder down to the wrist. Hem:  

Hip width: Measure across the fullest part of your hips. Make sure to meausre across and not around. 

  * We'll contact all our backers after the campaign for size and color selection. 

** A 0.4-0.7" / 1-2 cm difference is possible

*** In the case of doubt, we recommend choosing the larger size.

 

 

 

 

We’re a team of International explorers, who have banded together to make the ultimate adventure coat. On the map below you’ll see the places we’ve worn the different prototypes of Apricoat in the last 3 years, until we got it just right.

Risks and challenges

After testing the jacket around the world, we're confident that Apricoat will not only match but exceed any expectations we've set here.

While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product, we've minimized both by having our the entire process from production to delivery already arranged.
Our team's experience in project management, material design and business finances along with our experienced partners in crowdfunding and fulfillment leaves very little room for error and even ensure very quick delivery.
