NYCC took a lot out of us. It was 4 days of complete madness. If you were able to drop by and say hello, you probably had the chance to witness us in action. We had 5 people running the booth on Thursday and Friday, and 7 for Saturday and Sunday, and we all worked full days. It was extremely fun and exciting to put people in our jackets and get their direct feedback. We were able to learn a great deal from the experience about what works, what doesn’t, how we can improve the fit and feel of the product, and what we can do better at future conventions.
Now that we’re back, we’ll be starting to put our the fires, answer emails from the last two weeks that have been waiting patiently in our inbox. In the meantime we are going to try and answer some of the big questions you’ve been asking in email, Facebook and tumblr asks right here on the blog.
First things first: Eagle Run 1.5.
The feedback we received from the Kestrel tipped us off to a possible need to adjust our sizes. So we decided to wait until after con before placing the final order for the 1.5. This turned out to be a great idea, I was able to learn a great deal about our fit and how our sizes need to be adjusted for a more comfortable fit. We are incredibly sorry about the delay, but we can promise you that it will have been very much worth it. Wen are also looking into order fulfillment companies that operate closer to our manufacturer, which will greatly decrease the shipping time. I’m waiting on an ETA from the manufacturer, but they know that you have been waiting for a long time and are doing their best to complete the order as quickly as possible.
I feel like that update is the most important to get out of the way. We are in the process of writing a FAQ post to answer the major questions regarding the current run of jackets in our shop. As well as a post that will further explain the features of the Falcon design and the differences between the Men’s and Women’s version of that design.
Keep an eye out for news and updates, as well as feature posts showcasing the prototypes we had with us at NYCC: the Ninja, the Samurai, and the two variants of the Demon Killer design.
