Hailing from the Pacific Northwest – Homeschool may just now be setting up distribution on our shores – but their reputation already precedes them. Their outerwear products are designed and put to the test in some of the tougher riding conditions you’ll experience, and as they say, if they hold up there, you’ll be fine wherever you take them.

Today we sat down with main man Danny Clancy who filled us in on the high end tech that’s going into their Universe Jacket – including ‘activated carbon’ for increased breathability, so you can stay warm and dry even when you’re really pushing yourself.
