30 Days of Giveaways Day 15: Homeschool Outerwear
Having outerwear that performs in the elements and is comfortable, yet stylish is paramount, and while many brands out there are trying, some are simply doing it better than others. Homeschool Outerwear is one of those brands, and they're offering up a full technical kit as part of our 30 Days of Brand Giveaways. Here's your chance to win the Universe Jacket, the most technical jacket in its class, that comes with a 3.5 L Shell and is super breathable, while withstanding the elements. Also up for grabs are the Heavy Days Pants which pair with the jacket, and are built to perform on even the gnarliest days on hill. Technical outerwear needs to be backed with the best baselayers, which is why Homeschool is also giving away their Hardcore Days baselayer shirt and Softcore Nights baselayer bottoms, along with the Cinder Reversible Flannel. The flannel can be worn while riding, or while out at the bars, and is the perfect addition to this stacked prize pack. Enter below.
Homeschool Outerwear founder Daniel Clancey grew up in Kailua, Hawaii wearing flip flops and boardshorts. At 19 he moved to the Mainland, started snowboarding, and became intrigued by the idea that—with the right outerwear—a person could be comfortable in the gnarliest of conditions. After 15 years in the industry, he branched out on his own, hence the name Homeschool—learning by doing. Call it crazy, call it passionate; Clancey left the Hawaiian Islands for good to make some of the best outerwear available.
Together with a small but exceptional team, Clancey has been creating innovative outerwear with timeless style since 2011. Every Homeschool piece carries with it the creative vision of the team—no answering to corporate heads. Also, through small run, high-end manufacturing it offers the kind of consistent quality only a small company can produce. Looking for something between a neon hamburger print and a dully-designed alpinist piece, Homeschool landed on a "clean and mean" aesthetic. It's straightforward without being boring or excessive. Inimitable design elements like the Wind Hater Hood set Homeschool apart from other brands. The raised cheek panels were conceived during a gnarly windstorm at Mt. Hood. They provide face and neck coverage without compromising peripheral vision.
On the technical side, Homeschool's focus has always been about optimally balancing breathability and durability to protect riders from the elements. 37.5 Technology™ is made with naturally derived materials. Homeschool was the first in the business to use it, and it currently runs through the entire Baker series. 37.5 Technology™ helps achieve the breathability/durability balance via activated carbon particles infused in material fibers. They work to speed up the process of moisture evaporation and increase breathability by at least 40%. By layering the base layer, mid-layer and shell, 37.5 Technology™ works even more efficiently to keep riders dry.
Homeschool's team of rippers can genuinely vouch for the functionality of the gear because they have worn it extensively in the crazy conditions of the Northwest mountains. The gear holds up in pelting rain, deep snow, and fog, or as they like to say, "If it works here, it can work anywhere."
