Fantastic hoodie / jacket idea. I've started looking to some warmer spring clothes, and this looks right on. Although, I too, am not into may of your color styles, and would also prefer a full zip to a half zip. But that prototype looks great. You might have me sold on that with a few more color options. I dig that your keeping it local sourced too. Best of luck keeping it going, and keep us updated on that prototype.

Another question

poutanen - if you have time to snap a pic, I'd take a look.

I will keep you all updated with the prototype. I am stoked for the design as it has started to really take form. The color ways will be different than what you see on the picture. We just used the fabric on hand ...

... this leads me to another question, what are some colorways that you like? I have noticed some comments on the colors and want to get a feel for what you all personally like and what you think would sell too (especially in regards to plaids for the prototype).

Great feedback by the way. This has made my day.

Really like the proto. That's something I could see my self getting.

As far as colorways, obviously black is always a winner. Lately, I've really liked the royal blues (think the color from the Nixon 51-30 Rubber watch). Add that color with black or a lime green and I think it is very current. I also have always liked red with a silver or grey.

Here's the white stitching I was talking about. Sorry for the crappy pics, this is in my office at work. The flash made the white more pronounced, it actually is much more subtle out on the hills. I'd like to see the prototype with the same material cuts, but in all black with white stitching like this. Would look great methinks!

I've been using this jacket for probably about 10 years now. I actually paid $250 to buy a replacement for it last year, but I'm still using the old one instead. I love this thing!

Clickable thumbnails as always...

Yeah, I like darker colours for snowboarding gear cause it doesn't get all marked up from trees, etc. Some kind of charcoal/gunmetal grey kinda thing would work well with a deep red too. I painted my old living room a deep red/red wine colour that would make a great colour for snowboarding gear.

You should look into starting a team program with some local riders. Find some groms at your local resorts hook them up with gear, stickers and some exposure on your site and they will spread the word throughout there schools. Make sure they are good best way is to recruit at comps. It takes a little investment in the beginning but the better they get the more people that will know about your gear. GL

I also would be interested in a full zip version (pullovers/halfzip are too much hassle). This is what I'm currently wearing in the spring weather

I'm a sucker for muted plaid colorways and I'm sure a lot of others are, too.
