Friends,

THANK YOU for being a previous backer of my projects. In case you missed it, last year I launched an updated version that built on The Weatherneck concept.

To celebrate November 21st, I am offering a special on the updated version, THE WEATHERNECK SYSTEM. The System is 21% off for backers of my previous projects (you may share this code with friends too).

Check out the reviews on the "System". We've heard great things from all kinds of sports like cycling, fatbiking, XC ski, downhill ski, snowboarding as well as tactical and workwear applications.

It's a wonderfully unique, made in the USA gift too (ships immediately)!

The discount code is "THANKSGIVEN" or just click here:

In other news:

1. Earlier this year I started a modest YouTube channel to talk about racing and now zwifting cause I separated my shoulder in a race last week, so I'll be indoors for the foreseeable future. I would really value your subscription: https://www.youtube.com/user/briandavis3000

2. I am working on my most audacious project to date, but it will be a while before I can announce it. If you know any angel investors looking to get involved in the sports industry have them contact me brian@fixitsticks.com

3. Follow on Instagram, we repost #theweatherneck

Thank you for supporting garage businesses!

I'm all out of ideas...(for now)

Lightening Fast Update for the Fix It Sticks Family

Guess what?

I'm NOT working on any new ideas at the moment. None, zilch, nada...but I do have a goal!

My goal: Posting race videos on YouTube. 

Why? By giving a little insight I hope to get people more comfortable racing bikes. It's a learning curve, so I'm doing my part to make it less intimidating. Listen, I know not everyone here is a bike racer, BUT you might also be inspired enough to simply go for a ride and that's just as good!

If you want to check out my channel visit this link: https://www.youtube.com/briandavisraces

It would be totally-bodaciously-super-radical if you would subscribe to the channel. It helps the videos reach more people and eventually that means more people riding bikes! 

As I've mentioned in the past, I'm forever grateful for your support of Fix It Sticks!

The end is near, the end is NOW!

Happy Sunday Sunday! 

One last FYI that our campaign for The Weatherneck System is about to come to an end. 

On and off insanely fast!

I can't thank you enough for your past support! 

The Weatherneck System is really an incredibly useful weapon for battling the elements. Now that it is cold I've been able to test it plenty of times in the past few weeks and I have never been happier with a product I've created. It works so well (I know I am biased, but it's true). 

SHIP-A-GIFT - If you live in the USA and you buy more than 1 System I can ship to second addresses for no extra charge. This is a great opportunity to buy a VERY unique gift AND support small business at the same time. 

Thank you again and if you are already behind the new campaign...THANK YOU! If not, jump on it now. 

 BACK THIS PROJECT NOW! 

 Brian 

P.S. Are you a runner? I added a very quick video review of The System in use for running. It works exceptionally well for cold weather running giving you 3+ options for temperature control. 

 P.S.S. Our friends at BiKase JUST LAUNCHED ON KICKSTARTER! It's a new pannier/trunk/backpack that is stunning in its execution. These cats are in Wisconsin too, so I had to share the love for them. https://goo.gl/Gmiq2D

To the creators of Fix It Sticks

Hello Fix It Sticks CREATORS!

A couple weeks ago I mentioned we launched a new project on Kickstarter, The Weatherneck System. It's a breakaway balaclava; 100% unique, 100% black, 100% made in the USA and it 100% works.

 We had a good week on that campaign. Let's review...

The Weatherneck System received some press reviews: FatCyclist called us out as the Paceline podcast pick of the week, Peloton Magazine featured us as a weekly pick, I was featured on 2 podcasts and had a great write up on CyclingTips, we also had a tactical review of the system on YouTube all the links are at the bottom of the campaign page.

We HIT GOAL, applied for a patent, ordered fabrics, scheduled production, was on 2 podcasts and I got to race this weekend (first fat bike race of the year).

THIS PRODUCT IS SCHEDULED TO SHIP IN EARLY DECEMBER - Plenty of time for USA delivery by Christmas!

What a great gift to give - a product that's not even available yet!

  Speaking of the race, it's a good case study for The Weatherneck System. I sat on the start line freezing cold and had the face mask high on my face, covering my nose and mouth. Then we got started and they smacked us with a climb right in the start. Then I dropped the face mask to lay comfortably around my neck for lap 1. After that, I got hot, so somewhere in lap 2 I was able to rip off the face mask, bury it in a pocket and not lose a step. THE FEELING of being able to remove it quickly, adjust your temp and keep on hammering is really what the whole product is designed to do. And it does it well.

Interestingly it was a good week for Fix It Sticks too, here is a great review of the new bracket from Gravelcyclist.com. And here is a great discussion of the Replaceable version vs. Original versions of Fix It Sticks: http://nsmb.com/fix-it-sticks-replaceable/

I'm still making stuff in the garage and it's not easy.

Please consider jumping in the new campaign for The Weatherneck System, just like Fix It Sticks, its a modular approach. It's unique looking but most importantly it works incredibly well. It's so important to have early support from the Kickstarter community so I can perfect the product and get it into the hands of the passionate few...that's you!

FYI...The Weatherneck System pulled it's first podium while being worn by pro rider Cole House at the race this weekend! So yeah, it works! Follow @coleshouse to follow his career.

Just Launched - The Weatherneck System - a breakaway balaclava

To the backers that started it all!

You are the incredible backers launched my idea from the garage to reality. 

Since then Fix It Sticks has grown, fought and clawed it's way through the market. We're still working hard on new things for Fix It Sticks everyday too - it's nice to know you backed the right idea!

But today is about something a little different. 

Mullet Hat + Face Mask = The Weatherneck System
Mullet Hat + Face Mask = The Weatherneck System

Today, I am launching my latest project THE WEATHERNECK SYSTEM-A modular balaclava

In the spirit of Fix It Sticks, I designed 2 separate parts to come together to form a single, useful piece of gear - the balaclava. 

Perfect for cold weather rides that are surely coming our way and for other sports like snowboarding, skiing, motorcycling and even hunting. Version one of this product came out last season, but there was a lot of work to do over the summer. I am extremely proud to show you the work.

100% Black - 100% Made in the USA - 100% Silent - 100% Awesome
