OCCUPATION: Travel Marketing
WHAT GARMENT ARE YOU FIELD TESTING?
The 400 Crew.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE GARMENT?
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!
