The Last Hoodie You'll Ever Need

$109,188

Why we're doing this:

Hoodie's have been around since the 30's, but they tend to fall into one of two categories: weather-resistant hoodies get carried more often than worn, and everyday hoodies can't seem to abandon a baggy and outdated look.

Why can't there be a hoodie that isn't afraid to play in the elements but sharp enough to adventure around the city or on the trail? We think there should be a better way:

We Begin with Fit & Form

This is where tailored fits and considered design bring the best out of a heritage garment. With something this sharp, seamlessly transition from city street, to trailheads, and everything in between-- this hoodie's got you covered.

Powered by Technical Fabrics

We wanted to make a hoodie that gets worn, not carried. By building the Technical Hoodie out of Polartec® Power Shield® Pro, this hoodie gives you the ideal balance between weather resistance and personal comfort.

What's Next?

Like all technical garments, we need to meet a modest production minimum. With your help, we look forward to bringing this project to life. 

Everything in our supply chain is custom made, beginning with the individual components for the fabric. Given the nature of a made-to-order supply chain, we expect the first of hoodie orders to begin shipping Spring of 2016 (March).

We Are:

Risks and challenges

At this point, our designs are finished and our factories are ready. It's not if we'll ship, it'll be a matter of when. We've been planning this for a while and have mitigated most risks. We'll only ship out products that are 100% ready, but no earlier. That date is March 2016.

If something unforeseen happens with our supply chain, we'll be transparent and keep you posted about your order status.

Lastly, our designs and pictures are of prototypes that represent the final product; however, as we continue to receive your input, we may incorporate subtle updates/enhancements prior to production. If so, any changes will be transparently communicated to all backers.
