Cohaesive wins ISPO Gold!

Cohaesive was awarded the ISPO innovation award in for 2014, with a unanimous vote across the entire panel of 60 ISPO judges. After 5 years of hard work, sweating every detail, it IS nice to get some industry recognition that what you’ve been working on is a worthy objective. Big congratulations to the whole development team at FYi for all the great work in achieving such an elegantly simple solution, and in being the first to be able to commercially laminate ‘operative components’ directly to textiles! -TR

Cohaesive Embedded Hardware

FYi Designed & Engineered. We are proud to introduce Cohaesive Garment Technologies.

Cohaesive components answer a question the industry wasn’t asking. We build a lot of garments at FYi, and we grew frustrated with having to design garments with conventional hardware solutions. We felt like every other aspect of our garment designs were state-of-the-art. Yet, we were stuck attaching antiquated hardware as if it were an afterthought.

We started questioning everything. We wanted hardware that was integrated into the garment itself. We wanted hardware that was intuitively easy to use. We wanted a modern cord management solution that represents the state of the art in technical outerwear construction. What we really wanted didn’t exist… so we got to work. 5 years later, we now have what we were looking for. Cohaesive is launching with select leading technical garment brands for the Fall 2014 season. For more information visit


Foon Skis

Introducing Big Mtn. Uber-ripper Johnny ‘Foon’ Chilton. Johnny is one of the original pioneers of Big Mtn. skiing in the Coast Range, with fellow legends Eric Pehota and the late Trevor Peterson. Johnny has more recently been translating his steep skiing knowledge into the art and craft of building his own skis by hand. When you acquire a pair of Foon skis, you are literally getting hand-crafted boards by the -maker/user/designer/ripper-  man himself. Foon Skis world headquarters is based in Pemberton, British Columbia. Go to for more info.  -TR

A sneak peak behind the FYi x S/Double 60/40 prototype. This has been an ‘art project’ on slow percolate for some time, playing around with our good friend Shawn Stussy. The S/DBL 60/40 is Shawn’s spin on the classic 60/40, mixed with modern materials and construction tech. Release date and availability (read very limited) are yet TBD.
