About this project
What is Fayettechill?
Fayettechill has been described as many things: an outdoor clothing company, cultural brand, a social movement that values experience first and foremost. But ultimately, we are a family. We are just like you - a group of friends and family members that have come together create something beautiful in this world, something that others might find as useful, inspirational, or motivational throughout their days working hard to support themselves and others. Fayettechill is and always will be community first. We have pledged to be “an exhale to the daily grind” and we believe we can do the most effectively by creating a unifying community for all to enjoy. Our community is bound by a shared love of the outdoors and by values that prioritize sustainable outdoor recreation in general. Although we are all increasingly digitally connected, it is apparent that most feel an almost paradoxically sense of isolation in the modern world. Fayettechill is our answer to this modern struggle. We invite you relax, explore the outdoors with us, and discover all the ways we are alike.
Tell me about the Journeyman
The Journeyman is the realization of 5 years worth of planning and building. When we first started Fayettechill out of our college dorms, we always dreamed of being able to produce unique outdoor gear that was designed specifically for the hybrid lifestyles we lived. Gear that wasn't designed to take you to the top of Mt. Everest, but also tough enough to make it through a sudden down pour in between class, or up to the task to accompanying you on an impromptu trip into you dream up while at work. After years of honing our identity as a brand and production capacities as a company, we are now at a point where we can confidently offer The Journeyman Dry Bag Backpack, Fayettechill's first piece of outdoor gear designed entirely from the thread up.
Our original design work for the Journeyman Dry Bag Backpack was created to address a set of core problems we felt we could help fix with this product.
To understand the Journeyman is to know it as our response to these five factors. We wanted to create a product that blends and balances these functional and aesthetic values.
Fayettechill's Pledge Rewards
Fayettechill has a lot to offer in all things chill. We wanted to make sure we designed our pledge system around the wide selection of products we currently make. Fayettechill creates experience inspired apparel and this is our way of sharing our past, present, and future experiences with you.
Risks and challenges
We are a company that has been in the habit of producing apparel for our customers for the last 5 years. With that experience come confidence in our manufacturing relationship and production capacities. Journeyman packs will be available 70 days after the project is successfully funded. We have gone through multiple rounds of development and prototypes for the product an are at a place in its production that we are just waiting for the crowd-sourced supported gathered by Kickstarted to pull the trigger.
Once the bags arrive to the Smokehouse, we will ship them along with any other pledge tier prizes earned, around the country with ease. We ship Fayettechill apparel out all over the United States due to orders that come through our online shop or retail partners. Our experience in the fulfillment of this orders, plus our super chill but always hard working Warehouse Team, gives us confidence that we will be able to fulfill any and all orders that come our way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
