| 0 Comments

This is awesome news. Our one-of-a-kind, world's first NanoSphere finished Hydrophobic Shirt just made SHAPE Magazine's essentials list: BEST SUMMER TECH FOR THE BEACH.

Read the feature here: SHAPE MAGAZINE

Whether you are cycling, surfing, sailing, kiting or stand-up paddling (SUP), this garment likely has a place in your wardrobe. There really is nothing like anywhere else. It not only breathes incredibly well thanks to the ultra-high performance knit, but it also stays dry as possible for as long as possible thanks to NanoSphere. NanoSphere is the best performing water repellent fabric technology we have ever tested. The result of all this: a totally new class of garment.

The key ingredients: Technology from Switzerland, built in Canada after rigorous design and testing at our base in Maui, Hawaii

VERSATILE GEAR IS WHAT WE BUILD: THE GEAR CASTER NAMES OUR KANAHA OCEAN SHIRT AS A “MOUNTAIN BIKE ESSENTIAL”

| 0 Comments

Another reminder of just how versatile and hard-working Bluesmiths gear is: our Kanaha Hydrophobic Shirt has just been named one of The Gear Caster’s Nine Mountain Bike Essentials – “the Schoeller NanoSphere hydrophobic coating means this shirt repels dirt, dust, and rain. What could possibly be more useful than that for multi-day desert or early season Pacific Northwest riding?” It is also available for Men.

Pair it with the Spartan shorts like we do when we hit the bike here in Maui and the rain showers are threatening – you can ride for hours and come home dry and happy. We’re stoked to be recognized by such a respected tester as Amy Jurries at The Gear Caster – she really know her stuff and hers is one of Outside Magazine’s top 7 Best Gear Websites.

Another great day here at Bluesmiths HQ in Maui! The Kula WindPro Hoodie has just won the prestigious Polartec 2014 APEX Award alongside some of the big boys: Arcteryx, Lululemon, and Patagonia to name a few. It’s distinguished company, and exactly where we think our carefully crafted gear deserves to be.

 

Despite the caliber of the other competitors, we knew we had to enter the jacket for this competition - Bluesmiths LIVES for the APEX Awards' criteria: innovation, functionality, versatility, fit and aesthetics. It's awesome to not only hear about how great this garment is from our customers but also now from the industry.

 

We’re also incredibly excited to be adding the Malden Statue to our trophy cabinet. Click here to see how these pretty cool things are made!

Thank, Polartec, for that key ingredient: Wind Pro® with Hardface. Wind Pro makes the hoodie wind-, water- and abrasion resistant and hugely versatile in both ocean and urban environments!

Congratulations to our incredibly talented designer, Erika Howrey Giarrizzo!
