WHAT GARMENT ARE YOU FIELD TESTING?
The Peak Hoody.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE GARMENT?
Awesome. Tough and durable cotton. Plus Organic! I love it.

DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WORE THIS GARMENT OUTSIDE.
HOW DID IT PERFORM?
Absolutely amazing. I use it for everything. Doesn't matter if I went firewood chopping in a springtime snowstorm or hiking somewhere off the beaten path... This tough cotton truly doesn't disappoint. It didn't rip and it actually didn't get dirty all that easy either.

HOW DOES THIS PRODUCT MAKE YOU FEEL? 
Well protected. Well prepared.

HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU WORN IT?
Most days in a month. It simply is my favourite choice for everyday adventures up north!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FABRIC?
I love that it is so much more sturdy than the usual hoodie. 

DID YOU FOLLOW THE WASHING/DRYING INSTRUCTIONS WHEN CLEANING THE GARMENT? IF NOT, HOW DID YOU CLEAN IT?
Well, it didn't get all that dirty, plus I live in a cabin without running water...

DID THE GARMENT CHANGE AFTER USE?
No.

DID THE GARMENT MEET YOUR NEEDS?
Yes. 

HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THIS PRODUCT? 
I can't really think of anything.

TELL US A STORY ABOUT YOU IN THIS GARMENT.
How about the story when I saw the first grizzly of this year? Or when I went climbing on snow-covered cliffs looking for the mightiest ram of the mountain? Or the one time that I sat down next to a lynx, watching this silent hunter stalk gophers? So many stories that are now woven into its fabric. 

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR WEEKEND?
Outdoors. Somewhere in the wild. Where the predators roam through the bush and the mosquitoes sing in my ears. 

WHAT'S ONE WAY THAT YOU LEAVE THINGS BETTER?
I truly hope that my images of the wild help to create a connection that allows people to understand the wild world better. And to appreciate it's beauty. I feel that through photography, there might be a chance to save at least some places and some species. Because at the end who's gonna protect the things that he/she doesn't even know about? 

And of course, I always collect the trash that I find laying around, wherever I go camping. But I guess that is a given.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL US?
Keep up the good work.
