Kickstarter of the Week: Four Athletics – 100% USA made Premium Athletic Wear

Product: Four Athletics
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Kickstarter End Date: December 18, 2015
Current Pledge: $32,755 of $25,000 (WILL BE FUNDED)

We love a good local company here in the Pacific Northwest. While LA is not exactly local, it is nice to know that a product line is made and created entirely in the USA. And wouldn’t you know it – quality local gear can actually be inexpensive!!

Myth. Busted.

From their campaign:

A lot of really solid looking pieces.

In 1980, America made 80% of its clothes in the US; today, that number is down to 2%. Our mission is to bring manufacturing and jobs back to the US. By going American made, we are committing to making the highest quality, most durable activewear on the market.

You’re probably thinking the last thing the world needs is just another active wear brand right? We think the exact same thing!

Four Athletics is certainly not that. We aren’t here to clutter store shelves with more outsourced, overpriced, mediocre-quality athletic apparel. We are here to change the way that premium active wear is bought and sold through our innovative business model which allows us to deliver top quality athletic wear at a substantial savings that would not be possible in traditional retail.

We eliminate waste, cut out the middleman, and deliver a premium quality product at a fraction of the retail price.

Four Athletics is coming to Kickstarter and in the process of creating six sweet looking, and essential, pieces of running and fitness gear.

For women:

  • Omni Yoga Legging ($58)
  • Fitme Tank ($30)
  • Omni Short ($38)

For men:

  • Alpha Pant ($70)
  • Alpha Tech Crew ($35)
  • Alpha Short ($40)

Each product is made of a 4-way stretch material has been tested on a wide range of body types. There are measurement guides on their campaign page (scroll to the bottom), which is really helpful. It is anticipated that pieces will be shipping in March 2016.
