BIG IDEA

(This part needs thinking) some of the elements from the inside can transition to the outside in a subtle way. (see pic of shoe in “Supportive Thought column)

outside: VISIBLE TNF DNA ( macro view)

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT: lightweight initiative behind how we build. (fabric should feel substantial.)

FABRIC BINDING

ATHLETES MANTRA OR PERSONAL MESSAGE

Trims

create buttons or snaps with messages of american rebels, which can be meaning full to the athletes

water proof & Insulated not stagging with other pockets

V.2 of Pocket that lets the iphone sit in place (need name)

to fit over helmet these might be the only ones who actually wear a hood over a helmet.... Do we need this for the competition piece? I don’t Athletes feedback?
