iPhone 7 or 7 Plus users are still able to use our Seaquatix cases, however, as Apple have removed the back button and replaced it with a fingerprint reader, you will now need to enable a passlock to access your apps AND you will need to temporarily enable the assistive touch home button to go back to the homescreen. If you only wish to take photos, then you may swipe the screen to access the camera (you will still need assistive touch to go back).

Revolutionary Athletic Shirt that DOES NOT GET WET OR SMELL!!!
A men’s clothing brand built around not getting wet (hence our name: LiveDry), avoiding stains, and odors.
To give you a visual of our best seller:
– It is a 100% polyester grey athletic shirt
– The shirt is built for avoiding stains, spills, and body odors
– If you go for a run, the rain will bead against the shirt (not absorb), and keep the fabric dry
– If you spill a coffee, the coffee will bead right off keeping you 100% dry and stain free
– If you are traveling and only want to bring one althetic shirt, our shirt is perfect as it will not smell because it will never absorb the bacteria from your sweat
– Most importantly, the number one testimonial we get is just how comfortable are clothing is
The Story so far…
“Less than a year ago, we were bored in study hall. Now, we have our own ecommerce site, manufacturer, LLC, and trademark.
How did we do it? Well, let me tell you.
As any high schooler attending a prep school in the greater Boston area, my wardrobe consisted of lots of preppy pocket tees. I was opening a new one and saw the $42 price tag. I was shocked and and confused why it cost so much money. I researched, and the best answer I found was that it was made out of premium cotton and that people would pay for a brand name they know. I then thought I could create my own shirts of premium cotton and sell them for half the price as I have half of the formula.
Well, it was not as easy as it sounded. It took a long to time to design a preppy logo that people would wear. Long story short, it did not work out. Our idea failed the proof of concept stage; whenever we showed people our idea they said “Cool”, but I’d rather just wear Vineyard Vines.
Feeling slightly down, a friend suggested we create waterproof shirts. We both laughed and thought that it was impossible. However, I thought about his idea, and discovered that it was possible.
I did some market research and learned that there was only one or two competitors. Both were selling their plain white t-shirts for around $50 dollars and lacked styles that I, as a highschool student, would wear. I saw an opportunity and a niche in the multi-billion dollar fashion industry.
In the days to follow, I reached out to various manufacturers who claim they create hydrophobic (waterproof) t-shirts. After waiting a month for samples that never came, I turned to Alibaba, a website similar to Amazon that helps connect sellers to manufacturers.
Hundreds of whatsapp texts later, a package from China arrived. I opened it and anxiously poured blue gatorade on the shirt. It bounced off and was 100% dry and stainfree. It was amazing! My friend who was with me, was impressed, but said that it was a novelty item that maybe a couple people would buy. Not only that, but the shirt was tight and see through. I was determined to design hydrophobic shirts that looked normal and could help improve people’s lives.
I looked to everyday clothing brands for inspiration. I exchanged numerous more texts and samples with my manufacturer and finally, we created the perfect shirt. It was an athletic shirt that was a stylish grey. The shirt was cool enough on its own that I or any of my friends would wear even if it wasn’t hydrophobic. But it was, and that meant the shirt would not stain or smell meaning you did not have to wash it. My friend wore the shirt for the entire football season without washing it once! The day after the season he took it out of his locker and wore it around school. He showed off the water-resistant effect all day and no one commented on the smell. It was amazing!
Feeding off of the positive comments towards our first shirt. People asked what’s next. So, we went back to the drawing board and crafted our next two products. A golf polo and dress shirt.
The golf polo is the first of its kind in the golf industry. There is rain gear for jackets, pants, shoes, shorts, but no polos! We thought we could change this and that there was an opportunity. We wanted to prove the concept first, before ordering a large order. So, we went to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL. We did not get a booth because of the expense on two high school seniors, but we did fly down for the week. We surveyed over 50 show attendees and learned that over 94% of the people we surveyed would strongly consider buying our shirt. Not only that, but we got lots of business cards and made some great connections on which we hope to move forward with in the future.
The dress shirt, is an essential. No one wants to pay a large amount of money for a shirt that could get ruined on one bad night. So, we decided to change that. Our shirt is perfect for messy eaters, club goers, waiters, waitresses, and for all formal events. And not only is our shirt stainfree, but also, it does not need to be washed which will again help save our environment.
Today, only the athletic shirt is available on our website. But, that is about to change as we are finishing up the final touches on our kickstarter which we hope launch around Feb. 15. This will hopefully lead to a June delivery date.”
Cleaning & waterproofing products from STORM
Staying dry, protected and comfortable is key to enjoying the outdoors. Properly cleaning and caring for technical apparel is imperative to maintaining the performance of kit that is used year after year. Over time dirt and oil mask the water repellency treatment on waterproof kit – whether it’s clothing, footwear or accessories – meaning it will start losing performance and absorbing water.
Leading cleaning and aftercare specialist STORM offers a range of high performance cleaning, waterproofing and after-care treatments that can be used on a wide variety of outdoor kit including, waterproof jackets, mid and base layers, down jackets, leather, suede and synthetic footwear and backpacks.
WASH & ECO FRIENDLY PROOF
Significantly enhancing the technical performance and prolonging the life of outdoor clothing, STORM products are suitable for the aftercare and re-proofing of ALL fabrics and materials including, Gore-Tex®, Sympatex® and eVent®, plus much more. STORM’s PFC-free WASH & ECO FRIENDLY PROOF Twin Pack (SRP £7.50 for 75ml pack) for outdoor clothing is the handy option when you want to clean and proof your garments in one easy wash cycle; using less water and energy than other products on the market and ensuring your kit delivers the same protection it did when you bought it.
Use the WASH in the detergent compartment of your washing machine and the ECO FRIENDLY PROOF in the conditioner compartment. To activate the proofer, first line-dry the garment then tumble dry for 20 minutes or iron without steam. This will cure the garment for maximum performance.
Launch of Meander Apparel promises sustainable and fashionable functionality for the casual cyclist.
· Scottish-based brand set to reinvent the look and feel of the urban cycling market.
· Meander Apparel’s launch product – its multi-functional commuter jacket – offers style and functionality in all weather conditions.
· The brand is focused on sustainability and using innovative fabrics from responsible sources.
· Jacket will go on sale exclusively via Indiegogo.com in April – sign up now for updates on its release by visiting: https://meanderapparel.com/subscribe.
Edinburgh, Scotland, March 2018 – Premium lifestyle and performance brand Meander Apparel is set to breathe new life into the cycling fashion market this spring.
Scottish-based Meander will enter the cycling sector with a vision to provide cyclists and outdoor lovers a new take on lifestyle clothing. Its launch product – a multi-functional commuter jacket – will be available exclusively via Indiegogo.com this April, offering premium at an affordable price, without the luxury retailer mark-up.
Equally suited to the style-savvy commuter or the casual weekend adventurer, Meander’s new jacket has been developed to offer the rider style and functionality in equal measure, whilst staying true to its brand mission to create sustainable, timeless pieces.
The chic jacket combines high-performance Italian fabrics, made from environmentally friendly materials, with innovative features. The design ensures cyclists look the part whilst on and off the bike and a clever back pocket design allows the wearer to convert the jacket into a bag or attach it under their saddle. Its lightweight, waterproof and breathable material protects the cyclist in changing weather conditions and is fit for purpose for wider exercise, hiking or adventure activities.
Brought to market by Co-Founders Steve and Jill Henry, of Edinburgh, Meander Apparel was conceived when the pair noted a glaring hole in the availability of fashionable clothing for the commuter cyclist. Keen cyclists themselves, Steve and Jill organised a charity bike ride from London to Paris with friends and were struck by the drabness of the lifestyle clothing on offer.
Jill boasts experience working for London designer House of Holland and various influential menswear brands, while Steve comes from a career in the finance and asset management industry and has a degree in engineering. He is also a serial ultra-marathon runner and adventurer, with a Guinness World Record to his name for taking part in the most northern game of rugby at the North Pole. This endeavour raised £200,000 for children’s rugby charity, Wooden Spoon.
Steve comments, “The London to Paris bike ride demonstrated the need for something that was comfortable and functional for cycling but that we could also wear when off the bike and socialising with friends after the day’s riding. It had to be style and yet functional but we couldn’t find anything that fitted the bill. Lycra and neon jackets have their place but they’re not ideal for wearing in a social setting. A lot of gear isn’t even fully waterproof and breathable.”
The new jacket subtly incorporates all the technical features you’d expect from cycle wear without compromising on design. After two years of sourcing, prototyping and refinement, the result is stylish, high-performance and multifunctional. The Italian fabric is waterproof, breathable and lightweight and a match for any technical outerwear. There are reflective elements on the cuffs and rear pocket, that can be hidden away when not cycling, as well as in the seam tape on the hood. For the gadget-loving cyclist, the jacket features plenty of pocket space and an interior phone pocket with headphone eyelet. What’s more, Meander uses materials sourced from a responsible, family-run factory on Lake Como, which is able to sustain itself with clean, eco-friendly energy.
For the ultimate convenience to the rider, a cleverly designed back pouch allows the jacket to fold away neatly, forming an effective rucksack or messenger bag while still providing access to the pockets. Those who don’t wish to carry the jacket can roll it up and secure it under their saddle thanks to high-end vegetable tan leather straps, the solutions for which are made from organic substances. The jacket also comes with a lifetime repair service.”
Jill adds, “After two years in the R&D phase, we’re excited to bring Meander to market. We’re really passionate about combining our love of cycling and the outdoors with Scandinavian style and minimalist designs in a sustainable way. We want our products to last a lifetime so we’re offering a repair service on any wear and tear that can be mended and we’re committed to using environmentally friendly materials to achieve this, creating as little waste as possible.”
Once Meander has completed its initial phase of crowdfunding, it plans to expand its range to fully cater for commuter cyclists and outdoor lovers, continuing to work with sustainable suppliers and recycled fabrics wherever possible.
