Have a question?
Hi William, got the pledge but can fit. Can I exchange it for a bigger size?
Hey Jason, it isn't too late - we're sewing up some extra to be able to accommodate exchanges etc. How BackerKit works, however, is that I have to "unlock" your profile, which I just did, so you should be able to jump back in there and swap out for different sizes. Let me know if you have any trouble.
Hi Will, thanks for the update. Is it too late to update sizes? I've lost a fair bit of weight since this Kickstarter was started...
Hey John, just posted an updated, sorry about the slow response over the holidays!
Hey what's going on? No updates in quite a while.
I was able to update my survey and make the change.
Hey Dustin, sure thing! You should be able to do that now if you go here: https://pistol-lake-ultra-functional-activewear-for-minima.backerkit.com/
Let me know if for some reason that doesn't work.
I've the Super Early Bird Day Pack, but I would like to update the sizes I requested in my survey. I opted for a Large Hoodie but would like to switch that to a Medium, Is this possible?
Perhaps this can be the silver lining in this delay.
Hey Logan, I'm really sorry to have impacted holiday gifting, I totally understand where you're coming from, and as a consumer, it is always frustrating to me when companies miss their dates. Sometimes things are out of our control, as hard as we try, of course, so let's figure out a solution.
It's possible that we're ready to ship sooner than January, but there are too many moving parts to be sure, and I don't want to change from our original ship date once, and have to do it again. That is the thing that frustrates me most when I support a company. We're still waiting on some trim to come in and making last minute changes given the final production fabrics. Where we source our materials from more than a dozen small businesses, and use another half dozen in the manufacturing, it really is a challenging job to project exact dates, and like I said, we just want to make sure not to have to change it again. We've been making shirts and apparel for four years now, and we're working as hard as we can to deliver as quickly as we can, so there isn't anything more we can do to speed it up unfortunately. Each of the styles will be hitting the mail to you the minute they are done.
I could provide a refund for your gift pledge or I could provide other gear that we have in stock in exchange, if that would be better for you?
This latest update is the most heart breaking for this campaign. I had counted on some push back in dates from the information coming in but to see that you are holding all rewards till after Christmas with a simple "sorry" I am not sure is best way to treat this situation.
I am not sure about the rest of the backers but I had planned this for gifts for this holiday season and now that I have already paid in, I am left in a bit of an awkward bind.
Thoughts on the potential gift backers?
Hey John, posting an update right now! A little behind schedule unfortunately.
Hey hey, just wondering how production is going. Is been a month since the last update. So how's it going?!
Thanks for what you're doing, cool stuff.
"One outfit that gives you the freedom to go from the gym, to the office, to the mountains and back again without needing to change or wash."
I'd like to hear more about this. It's hard for me to imagine going from workout to the office (even casual office) without needing to change or wash clothes. Is this really an across the board experience? Can you elaborate more?
Regardless, I respect what you're doing. I look forward to hearing more.
Hey Lisa - thank you for the support! Our friend at Wayfair is quite the friend indeed!
Learned about your product from a friend of yours at Wayfair. I couldn't me more excited about your goal here, and can't wait to see the product in person!
Oko - you can pick the "JUST ONE" for $105, and double it - so $210 - for a pair of shorts and hoodie!
I've the Super Early Bird Day Pack, but I actually want the hoddie AND the shorts. They are the best IMO (but still in combination a bit too expensive).
Mark - let me dig in a bit and get back to you early this week on the UPF.
We do offer long sleeve tees - you can just add $20 to any pledge that includes a short sleeve tee to replace it.
We only plan to do XS - XL, unfortunately. As a really small company, we've found over the last three years that a very small percentage of our customers wore XXL or higher (much less than 1%), so it it is really hard for us to cut the quantity of pieces that make sense. We hope as we grow we can accommodate more.
Thanks Johann! Really appreciate the support.
It would be nice to know how the material does in blocking UV from the sun.
In that same theme, it would be nice to have an option for longsleeve T-shirts.
Also, it would be nice to know if you plan to do very large sizes, such as 4XL. Many high-tech garments are not inclusive in that they don't include heavy People who might also like to get outdoors and move around more.
Best of luck,
What's up guys? Great new campaign you got going here - supported the 1st and will also put my money down for this one :) Much love from Germany, can't wait to get my hands on the new apparel!
