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!
