If we don’t try new looks, we will just get lost among all the rest… I Welcome any suggestions towards new product
How often do riders actually have imput on the direction of a new company threw a forum
I realise the need to get your product out there and viewable. The fact with the snow industry is that, fashions change alot season to season. Some of those fashions are terrible (imo), you see them coming and can't wait to see them gone (pants around the knees and hoodies that come down to the knee are but two examples).

I guess what I am saying is, you dont necessarily need to chase the fashions, because if you make a great product, that is durable, functional, aesthetically pleasing, and priced well, you will be on the money. You know that though already I am sure.

Well tell that to the freeskiers.

They do have the market on etsy snowboarding pants, these are the only other ones I could find .

I agree if I was starting off, try to be more neutral to appeal to the masses first. The crotch thing is a little weird. Looks like someone took a dump in em.

Shinny vinyl DOWN pants? Wow, cheesy.

Marketing is hard even for the big boys.

The best marketing is word of mouth when it comes to small shops. People do want made in NA stuff that's for sure. It's very hard to make money though because the cost of materials and the time but many would be willing to pay a bit more to have a non China made item I am sure.

Appreciate the feedback good and bad.
We started with this pant, and have two more pants coming soon. Reg fit, and Skinny stretch.

Our baby is due anyday, So we are on pause for about3 weeks, then we are hitting it hard with lots of new product both baggy and skinny.

Be sure to check out the face masks, beanies and hoodies.
can't beat the prices

Lots of new gear up just in time for riding season! Also we are looking to sponsor our first riders. Just free gear at this point, but we want our riders to develop with our company. Looking to sponsor one male and one female from ontario for a promo video we are shooting in Jan.
