So I love to ski in tall wool flannels, they look so steezy, and they are so versatile, they make as good of a mid layer as they do an outer layer. But they have one major flaw: they aren't waterproof, I've tried a few different methods of waterproofing, the most promising method was sewing a thin waterproof but breathable lining to the inside of the flannel, sure the outside fabric might get wet, but its wool, and keeps you nearly as warm when it's wet as it does dry, I've been thinking about making my own waterproof flannels made specifically for skiing/snowboarding with sport specific features like a few extra pockets, and maybe a pow skirt eventually; and selling them, what I want to know is if you guys have any interest in a product like this? Also if you guys have any ideas for features that would make them even more practical for winter sports, please let me know. I'm very serious about this, and I will aim to make them extremely durable and high quality. Thanks ahead of time guys 😀 (we can use emojis now sweet)
I like where your heads at but I am almost sure Jiberish/Saga have this covered already. I've had a Jib flannel for the longest time and I have worn it as an outer layer on a really warm pow day. Snow sticks to the outside, but can be brushed off easily. I have never felt the flannel get soaked all the way through. Jiberish has that diamond weave tech and that base polyester layer has never gotten that wet.
I completely forgot about sagas flannels, several of my friends love them, I just smoked a fat ass blunt and got a sweet new idea, that could give me an edge over the established companies, but I need to see if it works in the real world
