We have some pretty good stuff on Youtube now ... some from us, some from others, and more coming pretty often. People do not tell me when they are releasing a video, so I can't really keep up ... Please keep in mind that some of the people posting comments don't know what they are writing about, even though they seem to think they are experts. And even sometimes the videos themselves don't express things as precisely as I would like.
- Click here for the WeatherWool Youtube Channel
- You can go to www.Youtube.com and search for WeatherWool and there will be a bunch of vids, some of which I may not have seen yet myself.
And here is a selection of the vids we know about:
- Advisor Don Nguyen posted a video that compares the WeatherWool All-Around Jacket to the Filson Double Mackinaw
- Advisor Trustin Timber and Caitlin do a great job (and fun) job showing how WeatherWool stands up to whatever hits it (literally).
- Introduction to WeatherWool (and Al's Anorak) from me (Ralph) and then a followup commentary on the Anorak from Advisor Rob Allen, who shot, produced and edited the video. THANKS ROB!
- Winter Weather Immersion ... The idea of this video is to show that if you wear serious wool, you can easily tolerate a dunking in cold weather. So, I take a dip in an icy river, and then basically just carry on ... it really wasn't a problem because of the clothes I was wearing.
- Advisor David Jacques, The Maritime Spook, reviews his All-Around Jacket. Spook has one of our earliest AAJ's ... we have changed the design somewhat, but the Fabric is our true production Fabric.
- Rob Allen of Sigma 3 Survival filmed a documentary about WeatherWool tailoring.
- Rob Allen of Sigma 3 Survival tells why he feels WeatherWool is clearly the best Anorak he has ever found.
- This video from Advisor "BJ Hagg" shows how BJ likes to pack his Anorak and gives a great sense of how meticulous and detailed professionals are.
- Here is a video from Chris Tanner, Prepared Mind 101, on our Anorak. Please note that Chris thinks his Anorak is an XLarge, but it is a Large.
- Advisor Melissa Miller (@MelissaBackwoods) posted a video about the Anorak and Neck Gaiter.
We have several more videos and although these are informative, we will probably delete them because the production quality is not where we want it to be. Actually, even the one video that we think is pretty good, the one cited above, should be done better, and, eventually, will be. Thanks for your understanding! Here are the earlier vids that we plan to replace as we gain experience.
- An earlier version of an Introduction to WeatherWool (March 2017, 2 minutes) featuring me, and somewhat different material than the intro linked above. Debby's right (as usual) ... I need to lose about 80 pounds ... But the vid does give a good idea of what we are about.
- Darrell Holland Introducing WeatherWool (April 2015). The first few minutes of this video is devoted to WeatherWool. A couple of years after this video was made, Darrell accepted our invitation to become a WeatherWool Advisor. Darrell is an outdoor pro with his own school and he has been working with us since our early days. He actually made the first WeatherWool video and this is it.
- WeatherWool in the Rain (March 2017, almost four minutes). People often ask about wool in the rain and the wet. Wool is good and WeatherWool is better. You can go all day long in the rain without getting wet.
- SkiJac from Chad Borofsky (April 2016, 1 minute), Chad is a WeatherWool Advisor, the lead designer of our SkiJac and he skis with his young son on his back!
- Feedback on Anorak Prototype from Jeff Cook (May 2015, 1 minute). Jeff is one of the biggest fans of our Anorak, and he is also one of the first people to give us feedback, and one of the first people to become a WeatherWool Advisor. Jeff mentions a few things in the video, including:
- Cotton cuffs ... The Anorak no longer has knit cuffs. And the knit cuffs on our other garments are pure merino, made by us. Nobody is offering American-made knitted wool cuffs for resale, so we had to make our own.
- Oversized Hood ... The Hood now has a rear adjustment to let you pull it back on top and at the sides. But it is still big enough that you can hide your entire head and face inside it, whether for concealment or for protection from a sideways sleet.
- Does WeatherWool Burn? Not really ...
