Hey Kickstarter! We´re Beyond Nordic. An outdoor brand developed by hiking fanatics Patrik Tankred and Johannes Franzén, two outdoor enthusiasts with thousands of wildlife hours in their resume. We thought the industry of hiking pants was outdated, and felt the market needed something more! Better fit, cleaner design, and updated features! We collected all our favourite specs and props from famous outdoor brands around the globe, added the features we´d been missing, adapted the design to fit in to 2019 and Voila, Beyond Nordic! After appx 1,5 years of developing the perfect fit, design and features, we are now ready to go live with our project. We will make our absolute best to answer all your questions and we will also gladly take your feedback for future product development.
Hope to see you as a backer of our awesome project!

Design & Tech Files
We truly believe in functionality, and this is probably the reason why it took us almost 18 months of constant updating, changing and adding new features to our design. Countless shipments and re-modeling of sample pants have taken place before we finally found our perfect match. Below you can see the final Tech file for the BN001.
Stay safe, be searchable with RECCO®
Safety first, right? Feeling safe when visiting remote places allows you to focus on the adventure, rather than worrying about anything else. This is why we have equipped this pants with an integrated RECCO® reflector.
How RECCO works®
The RECCO detector emits a radar signal, like a beam from a flashlight. When hit by the signal the reflector bounces a signal back to the detector. The RECCO reflectors require no power and no activation to function. The RECCO system is global, used by more than 800 ski resorts, SAR teams and helicopter bases around the world
In outdoor clothing, there is a few key factors that you need to consider when choosing materials for your garment. You want the product to be durable, yet not too stiff and thick. Water recistancy is important, as well as the opportunity to move freely and be flexible when you are out there. Our pants are produced in 2 different sort of fabric. Soft Touch Nylon as well as a micro fabric in 4-way stretch. The fabric is fluorocarbon free DWR* treated for extra water repellency, and exposed parts of the pants is also re-inforced with dual as well as triple layers for extra durability.
*More about DWR
All our fabrics are treated with Durable Water Repellent (DWR). The treatment is free from fluorocarbon, which makes it sustainable. Impregnation with DWR means that a very thin layer of coating is applied on top of the fabric, preventing water from being absorbed by the fabric fibers and instead making the water rinse off
BN001 out "there"
Our goal is to produce a pant with all the benefits you get when buying a great quality outdoor pant at your local outdoor shop, but for a fraction of the price you pay there. By cutting out all the dealers, distributors, agents and stores and selling DIRECT to you, our customer, we can actually do just that. The priced offered here at Kickstarter is a Kickstarter/runway price ONLY. When our campaign is over, the price will be increased with appx 40-50% in our own E-commerce. But, that will still be a very competitive price compared to the rest of the outdoor industry!
Feel free to compare us to the rest of the market, we dare to promise that you won't find the same quality at the same price anywhere else

Our funding goal and idea
Consider this as our runway for launching Beyond Nordic outdoor. We believe strongly that there is room out there for a fresh and rethinking outdoor brand. With a successful launched campaign we can continue our work on developing our collection and add more designs into our line of production. We offer a highly discounted introduction price, in a way to raise more funds for developing of the brand and new products.
If we don´t reach our entire goal, no worries! We are already passed samples + initial production and have our first order of 1000 pants on the way to us right in this now. All backers will recieve their products nevertheless.
Don´t be scared of how empty our social accounts are, we just launched! :) Our goal is to build up at great community where we can connect and discuss future development, best hikes, weather and whatever with all our backers and future customers. More content will come, we promise!

Risks and challenges
Nothing in this world is risk free, although we have tried our best to make this campaign as safe as possible for our backers. We are already passed the PPS evaluation. Our initially 1000 pants in various models and sizes is on a containership as of now, and are planned to arrive in our warehouse in Stockholm by the end of August. Our goal is to deliver 500 pants in September, another 500 in October, followed by the final shipments in December or at the latest January.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
