About this project
The Trailhead pants are stain proof, waterproof, durable, packable, and versatile. Making them the ultimate everyday mountain to city pant!
The Trailhead is made with only the highest quality fabrics and our highest attention to detail. The fabric for the outer membrane is a nylon ripstop / 4 way stretch spandex blend focusing on the water resistance, durability, and stretch. The inner combed membrane allows for comfort and breathability. Every stitch on the Trailheads has been reinforced and secured to make sure they don’t unravel or fall apart. Using flat felled seams where others use basic stitching allows for the most durable pant we can build. The pockets are made from a synthetic silk so you can feel the most comfortable and feel the least resistance in your activities. The ankle drawstrings allow for ultimate versatility while wearing your Trailheads. Whether you need pants, shorts, or capri cut the Trailhead is ready for your next adventure.
The Trailhead technical pant is built to keep your waistline happy. The elastic drawcord is secured in the back of the pants, so it will never slide out. The elastic used is stiff enough to keep your pants secure yet soft enough to move with you. Whether your adventuring in the day or going out for the night the Trailhead pants will keep you comfortable and secure.
Just like all the other seams on the Trailhead we paid close attention to the crotch stitching and construction. We’ve had enough pairs of pants blow out to understand some things just needed to be constructed better. We started with a special crotch gusset giving more flexibility and stretch to the crotch area. We noticed the fabric was more durable than the stitching, so we added the same strong flat felled seams from legs to the crotch to strengthen the Trailheads to the fullest. We’re confident these innovations along with our revolutionary fabric will create the highest quality built outdoor pant you’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing.
The adjustable leg openings of the Trailhead pants are easily adjustable for increased performance while fishing, biking, or anywhere else shortening or securing the pant can come in handy.
Whether you are an ultra light backpacker, climber, or just looking for a new active pant, the Trailhead packs down to their own pocket and only weighs 10.9 ounces. Ready to be handy for any and every adventure.
Using naturally moisture wicking fibers and treating them with our vapor lock system, the Trailhead pants waterproofing is water and rain resistant except under high pressure (jumping in a pool, standing in heavy rain for extended amount of time). Don't worry though, you will get many washes before you notice any difference in the water resistance feature.
When we started developing the Trailhead pant a few years ago, cost was a giant factor. We wanted to make the best outdoor pant on the market for a price people could actually pay, value, and appreciate. But retail ruined that for us. Retail profit margins are too unrealistic to source the best materials and highest quality fabrication for a reasonable price. The Trailhead pants would cost nearly $200 in retail! So to accomplish our goal of making the ultimate outdoor pant, we cut the middle men and bring them to you, the Kickstarter community.
No more middle man, no more mark up. Just high quality goods for hard working people.
At Coalatree we pride ourselves on making responsible, durable goods. We guarantee your pants to have the utmost quality in craftsmanship and workmanship for the life of the product. Our guarantee covers all production defects and failure of materials due to everyday use or typical wear and tear. If any Coalatree Trailhead pant fails in its intended use, we will repair it for you or provide store credit in the amount of the purchase price.
Coalatree started out in 2010 by a group of friends on a journey to create sustainably sourced apparel and multi-use products.
Our mission is to bring you comfortable, durable and highly functional products that can be enjoyed whether you are in the mountains or in a sprawling city. The majority of our products are made from organic or recycled materials. We are passionate about sourcing the finest sustainable materials.
Coalatree products have been sold nationwide by big box retailers like Urban Outfitters and large online retailers like Backcountry.com. After trying the traditional brick & mortar retail model Coalatree decided to pivot the business online to reach a larger audience.
This led us to bring our last product to Kickstarter. The Kachula 2.0 was our first Kickstarter campaign which raised over $250,000.00 in just 30 days.
Now we are ready to bring our newest product the Trailhead Pant 2.0. Our most innovative technical pant yet.
Risks and challenges
After an array of samples, modifications and revisions we feel like we have the best possible product we can make.
We are getting better and better at managing our supply chain. With our first Kickstarter campaign there were delays in manufacturing which lead to delays with shipping. And as much as we prepare, we now see that some issues, some times, are just unavoidable.
So please understand that there are still some risk here with fulfillment being delayed. For example, if a container shipment is delayed for 2 weeks in customs or a batch of new parts doesn't pass Quality Control, our fulfillment schedule could be pushed back by a week or two.
We have already queued our manufacturers to ensure production as soon as we are funded and will be ready to ship as soon as they finish building them. We expect everyone will be able to receive their order before July 2017.
We have always dealt with our customer service issues in a way that leaves every last customer happy with their purchase and proud to support our company.
