About this project
We have created a pair of pants that combine the technical features of your favorite outdoor gear with a style and fit that you'd expect in the clothes you wear everyday. The Apollo Pants will perform like the best technical climbing or hiking pants, but are styled like your favorite pair of jeans.
From the bike to the boardroom; the backcountry to your favorite bar, these versatile pants are designed to take you anywhere you want to go.
You no longer have to compromise style for performance.
Thanks to a successful launch on Kickstarter last year, we were able to produce the first run of our stealth reflective outerwear. We've shipped to over 10 countries across the globe and have have received tremendous encouragement to continue our mission to provide clothing that performs as good as it looks.
Being a small start-up, we cannot afford to purchase the specialty fabric and meet production minimums on our own. We have spent the last 6 months designing, creating our prototypes, and testing the Apollo Pants. Now it's up to you!
$20,000 helps us make the minimum fabric order from our supplier in Switzerland and pay to manufacture them here in Los Angeles. Any money raised beyond our goal will help us to expand our product line.
Risks and challenges
Our last Kickstarter campaign brought with it many opportunities to learn and grow. We have built relationships with talented local individuals, streamlined our designs for production, and managed the challenges that come with any such process. Roadblocks will inevitably arise as we work toward reaching our goals. We are more concerned with providing you with a high-quality garment than anything else. If this means production takes a bit longer, we would rather ensure that the product we deliver is something we can be proud of. Thanks for joining in the adventure.
Please feel free to reach out to us directly. We genuinely look forward to hearing from you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The pants you see in the video are tailored for men. Our goal is to create the best possible gear for guys. Hopefully down the road as we grow we can begin to offer styles tailored directly to women.
We understand that a 34" inseam doesn't work for everybody. For any of you fellas out there that need a shorter inseam, we encourage you to bring your new Apollo Pants to a tailor once we send them your way so that they can hem them for you. If you've never been to a tailor before, fear not. You can often find tailors at your neighborhood dry cleaners or you can find them on Google or Yelp. From our experience, it costs around $5-7 to hem a pair of trousers.
Kickstarter only allows you to have a single pledge for each project. In the case where you would like the pants as we as the socks, you can just add the pledge value for the single pair ($18) or three-pack ($42) to the pledge for the pants. After our campaign is over we will ask for your size on both and ship them together to you.
