Jeff is a lifelong outdoorsman who has been wearing WeatherWool since 2014. As a youngster, Jeff was on the National Junior Olympic Rifle Team, competing in both Smallbore Rifle and Three Position Rifle. In his 20’s, Jeff was guiding elk and deer hunts in Oregon in the fall and traveling to Africa to video hunts for television. Jeff's primary outdoors activity is now bow hunting and his pursuit of the North American Archery Super Slam. He has hunted with both bow and firearm all over North America as well as having taken dozens of hunting trips abroad.
Jeff is as much of a gear-head as we have ever encountered in our years of talking to outdoor folk, and we take his ideas very seriously ... and he is one of the designers of our Anorak. Being from Western Washington, rain is something Jeff deals with regularly. He tells me that he can completely waterproof our Anorak by spraying with Nikwax. I haven't tried this yet myself, but when Jeff says it works, and washes out fairly easily when you no longer need waterproofing, I believe him. Jeff sent us a pic from a cold-weather bison hunt and another from an even-colder muskox hunt. Jeff has a tendency to pursue outings that involve physical difficulty ... places far off the road, high in elevation and very cold. He pushes himself and his gear.
