New Outerwear Company from PNW. My review

Hey everyone. I thought some people might be interested in my review of some outerwear made by a new company from the Pacific Northwest, Homeschool Snowboarding. They are a new clothing company launching for the 2011-2012 season. Anyways they were rad enough to provide me with some of their outerwear to review on my blog. The sent the With Teeth jacket and Revolve pant. I hiked 8.5 miles in them covering 4200 feet of vert at Mt Washington's Tuckerman Ravine. Weather ranged from light rain to sun to fog to windy on the headwalls. They aren't kidding about breathability...the stuff worked great. I am super impressed with the quality..moreso when considering it's their first year. I only had one day (season's done for me) to test the gear out..so I can't speak to full rain performance or durability (although it felt very rugged.)

Looks good, really clean design without the the pre-schooler colouring.

Yeah I liked it a lot...definitely fully focused on function more than anything else. The clean lines work too. I hope my post doesn't come off as spammy at all. It just seemed very cool to see a new smaller company emerging with a focus on technical rather than style, and I thought that would appeal to a number of people on the forum. When I got the chance to try their gear out I really wanted it to live up to my expectations and it did great. I will say I was sad to return it..though of course I really appreciated the opportunity to do the review. Everyone I've talked to at Homeschool has been super passionate about what they're doing and very friendly. I hope they do well!

Looks decent, not a fan of the limited color choices though.

Just a heads up for any folks looking at the Homeschool Skweetis pants. They are huuuuuge! Their waist sizing is right on but the XL I received must have had a 36" inseam. I'm 6'0" tall and with boots on I still had 3-4" of over hang. Also, the legs on these pants are extremely baggy, like XXXXXL park rat baggy, like wearing a mu'u mu'u baggy. I ordered them on special and got the bronze with black patches. Although it looks like it, those patches are not reinforcing of the knees or butt. Sadly, they had to go back. I really wanted to support their company; everything looks great on paper.

Great company, designer, and materials.

The pants fit great, the jacket's and anorak are amazing. If I needed outerwear, I would buy from these guys. The colors are great.

Yeah, I copped the jacket as it was a great deal.

theclymb.com has a special on their stuff right now, but I managed to find one even cheaper than they have them...
