Michael's own words: “I'm one of these nuts who'll sit in a spot for hours waiting for just the perfect moment of light. And when I travel to faraway places, I need to get the most out of everything I pack or carry. Camera gear takes up so much carry-on space. Having one jacket that replaces a fleece, a rain shell, and a heavy insulation layer is a godsend. I hardly feel qualified compared to the guides, outdoor experts and survival instructors listed on your site. I'm just an office-bound professional who loves taking his camera into the great outdoors—and loves wearing WeatherWool. I'm practically already a walking ad. I've received compliments on it nearly everywhere I've worn it… from the shooting range in Virginia to the broker bars of lower Manhattan. I often tell people that if I had five minutes to grab my most important possessions before a disaster, there's no question my All-Around Jacket would be in one hand.”
Funny thing about Michael ... he works with and is from an area where many people are very anti-gun. And so although Mike is a shooter, he does not want to look like, or be perceived as someone who owns firearms. I spoke with Mike prior to his attending an outdoors work-related function. Mike was concerned that his Lynx Pattern All-Around Jacket would attract unwanted attention from his colleagues, but I assured him that, after significant field-testing, we were confident that people will perceive Lynx as a beautiful and interesting pattern, and will not see it as camo at all. Afterward Michael told me that indeed, nobody thought he was wearing a camo jacket, and in fact some of his female colleagues remarked on his beautiful jacket and asked who is the designer.
