WHAT GARMENT ARE YOU FIELD TESTING?
The 400 Crew. 

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE GARMENT?
Comfortable, cozy.

DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WORE THIS GARMENT OUTSIDE.
HOW DID IT PERFORM?
Fall, lounging around the house, weekends, winter days when you need something cozy.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FABRIC?
Very clean feeling, soft on the skin, does not absorb sweat though so not good for hikes or outdoors activities. 

DID YOU FOLLOW THE WASHING/DRYING INSTRUCTIONS WHEN CLEANING THE GARMENT? IF NOT, HOW DID YOU CLEAN IT?
Warm wash, hang dry - came out like new.

DID THE GARMENT MEET YOUR NEEDS?
It did but I got the sweater when the weather was getting warmer so it was hard to find a time to wear it.

HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THIS PRODUCT? 
It is a bit plain for my liking. I like a bigger logo or more colour. Perhaps a different colour around the collar and sleeves, or a bigger tree logo on it 

TELL US A STORY ABOUT YOU IN THIS GARMENT.
I used this sweater on a hike to Nile Creek Falls near Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island. It was a great garment to wear although it got a bit warm. I picture it a great piece to wear on a spring skiing day as well. Its urban feel mixed with outdoor adaptability makes it something I would wear often whether I'm at home in Vancouver or adventuring elsewhere. 

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR WEEKEND?
Outside doing all the activities!

WHAT'S ONE WAY THAT YOU LEAVE THINGS BETTER?
Creating purpose-driven content for my social media channels and website. Encouraging collaboration and travel that positively impacts the environment, community, and culture. 

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL US?
You guys rock and keep doing what you're doing - but also, tell people the awesome things you are doing for conservation, your ethics, and the environment. I feel it's well known the amazing things ecologyst is doing within the community of ecologyst and people like me, but I also feel you guys could tell these stories better because you're doing awesome stuff out there and people care about it!

Chasing Birds in The 400 Pullover
The hoodie was always warm, I could just throw a jean jacket over top and be well equipped for a walk with my dogs. It is perfect when you're sleeping in your sleeping bag, super cosy, no frozen ears.

This tee makes me feel great about wearing sustainable clothing. Looking forward to wearing it in cooler climates.

Coffee Break in The 210 Merino Henley
I am a big fan of simple design with a minimalistic brand logo. The Merino Henley was a perfect fit for me. It was very easy to pair up with any of the pants that I had.
Luke Jams With The Stanfield’s Henley
Besides the itch, the fabric felt quite wholesome and about the exact opposite of putting on a low-quality t-shirt.
My Body, My Athletic Tee
I will wear this shirt until it's holy and stained, and I will love it with every step of the way.
The 210 Merino Henley Goes to Switzerland
It made me feel great as the Merino got a lot of compliments, and I got to tell people about your awesome company.
Greenhousing with The Stanfield's Crew
I wore this garment with a wool plaid shirt over top and stayed warm and cozy on late winter days when the north wind was crisp. It gave me a wonderful feeling of spring & summer to come!
Can I Wear All Black to the Beach?
This sweaters' fabric is excellent to the touch and has nice detail on the inside for warmth. 
Spotting Grizzlies in The Peak Hoody
Absolutely amazing. I use it for everything. It simply is my favourite choice for everyday adventures up north!
Brad Goes Sea to Sky in The Camp Cap

I've had my cap for just over two weeks and have worn it almost every time I walk out the door.

Nice and sturdy and makes me feel like all the parts of me are safe inside.
The Cabin Shirt, From a Mountain Man
The fabric is exceptional. You can definitely tell that it's prime organic cotton.
Post-Yoga Walks in The Cabin Shirt
I've received many compliments on The Cabin Shirt - it's unique, not your average flannel. It is practical for "doing outside."
Brandy's Peak Hoody Love
I love the organic cotton! The tight weave keeps me warm and keeps the cool coastal wind out!
Stanfield Together, Forever
I wore this garment in the city, working in my little 'urban garden' on a spring day and it kept me the perfect temperature.
Endurance Athlete's Wear Merino, Too
I love the colour, the fit, and the feel, and given the fact that it works well when I'm training and the wool comes from non-mulesed sheep, I'd have to say the product makes me pretty happy.
Cynthia, Dana, and The Cashmere Toque
I love the natural fibres you use for your clothes. They are more comfortable than synthetics and more eco-friendly.
