      Hi @Michael, you have the yesterday's answer to Mark bellow. Here's the previous message.
      You have the info in our updates
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vear/the-legs-jacket-waterproof-and-breathable/posts/1925360
      We expect it to arrive at us in approximately one week so we can start shipping.

      Hello,
      Wondering when you will start shipping?

      Hi,

      when will you start shipping ?

    5. Marcel Waelti Rettenmund on July 5

      Perfect! Thanks a lot for the answer! That is good to hear! And really waiting to try them on! ;-)

      Hi Marcel!
      The fabric we use is Sympatex L1297 STX Toulon, which is >20‘000 mm waterproof. See this in this folder the technical specs of the fabric we used + all Sympatex document explaining how they grade everything. https://goo.gl/TN54K1

      They Legs jacket are seam taped (with Sympatex seam tape), so water will not penetrate the seams.
      The reason we did not get the Performance label is due to the fact that we do not have waterproof zippers on the sides, but only for the front pockets.
      We chose not to use waterproof zippers on the sides because they would make the product hard to use, plus they zippers are protected by flaps. On none of our tests did the water penetrate the zippers in the current format.

    7. Marcel Waelti Rettenmund on July 5

      Would like to have a statement here. Windmaster has no waterproof index of >20‘000 mm. It‘s just water resistant. Can you proof otherwise? Really scared that this rain protection will just be a normal outer shell.

    8. Marcel Waelti Rettenmund on July 4

      Just to inform my fellow backers. The performance version of the pants actually use the Sympatex Windmaster product, which as per the Sympatex website is only water resistant and not waterproof. Sympatex Performance actually is water proof. Let‘s see how the Wndmaster keeps us dry kneeling in wet soil. And what is the reason of the performance version then? Guess the normal version is waterproof, too, as it‘s sold as rain protection. ;-)
      I‘ll put them to the test. Hope that it really holds up to our expectations...

      Can you let me know if you have my sizing information? Anthony Steyermark

      Hi @Michael, it is not necessary to use it at the start but for a long term, it will be helpful but not in order to repair it, more like to maintain its quality.

      Does this waterproof technology needs to repair DWR layer with nikwax?

    12. VEAR 2-time creator on June 28

      @kamaljit We will all feel great, even in the rain with the Legs Jacket:)

    13. Kamaljit Longia on June 27

      Start to get excited; almost hoping for a rainy Summer :-D

      Having to deal with unexpected delays are part of the process. Good work Vear team; it's the home straight now!

    14. VEAR 2-time creator on June 26

      Hi @Michael, we already prepared the shipping data for the shipping company so everything is meant to be sent at once. The agreement with the manufacturer was to deliver the first batch to us when finished and not in parts so everything could be sorted out and delivered without mistake.

      Michael Chung Yan Yuen on June 25

      You can start preparing shipping in parallel;
      Start shipping those already ready =]]

    16. VEAR 2-time creator on June 23

      Hi, @Anzelm. It's a matter of days until the production is finished. We can't wait to deliver and we were all disappointed too when those setbacks happened but we hope that all everything positive feelings will come once you receive it.

      4 Months delay at the Moment. Will be more, until it's getting produced and shipped ... and ... delivered. Slowly I getting too disappointed.

    18. VEAR 2-time creator on June 22

      Hi, Michael. It's a matter of days until the production is finished. You can expect the Legs Jacket to jump to help during those rains:)

      Hi, start shipping yet? It's raining heavily in Hong Kong lol

    20. VEAR 2-time creator on June 19

      Hi, Marcel! Our manufacturer informed us that they had a technical issue with the machine that applies the reflective part. A wheel broke and they had to replace it, which caused a delay. They promised to send us the samples as soon as possible (in max 2 days) and we'll post an update as soon as we get it. Sorry about this situation!

    21. Marcel Waelti Rettenmund on June 18

      Hello. Would love to see some pictures of the samples you received. ;-)

    22. VEAR 2-time creator on June 14

      Hi Marcel! We just talked to the manufacturer and we should be ready to start shipping next week. We received several samples that we sent back and tomorrow we should receive a few more.

    23. Marcel Waelti Rettenmund on June 13

      Hello there. Do you have any update? Did you receive a first sample? When will you be ready to ship? You should have a specific date by now. ;-)

    24. VEAR 2-time creator on May 30

      @ALL sorry for the late update, but we just received some materials to show you. Production is ON!

      Definitely hoping for black & by the end of the month as the rainy season is just around the corner here in southern Japan. Cheers!

    28. VEAR 2-time creator on May 15

      We just discussed with the manufacturer and he said he should be ready to start production this week. We'll post an update as soon as we go into production.

    29. VEAR 2-time creator on May 12

      @Alice, we hope to start shipping by the end of the month.

    30. Alice Raunsbæk on May 9

    31. VEAR 2-time creator on May 8

      I can fill out the survey again (changing my size after your last update), but after I successfully submit it still contains the old data.

      Hi @VEAR. I am sorry but how do we private messenger you for the sizes? All the kickstarter emails have a no reply. Thanks

    37. VEAR 2-time creator on April 26

      @Daniel, send us a private message. We can add notes to each backer's profile.

      Hi,
      Project Update #22 says to take new measurements.
      But how do we provide those measurements to you?
      Thanks!

    39. VEAR 2-time creator on April 24

      @Anthony, we hope so! We are now gathering the sizes and we hope to have it on time. According to our manufacturer, it should take about 3 weeks to get it all done.
      @Michael, we just posted the update, a bit later indeed, but we just received the sizing table.
      @Clive @Adam and @ALL send us a send us a private message. We will update it for you. We can add notes to each backer's profile.

      @VEAR It is *NOT* possible to update anything in the survey on KS, we can update only our address, but we can't update anything else. You should perhaps create separate survey outside of KS?

      @ALL you can find the previous survey you have submitted by clicking on the blue button on the (almost) top right on the project page with "View pledge" label, and there click on the "Survey" link.
