Search and Rescue Custom Apparel
When Emily from Princeton Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) contacted us, I was intrigued. This was the first time VC had been in touch with a SAR team for custom apparel and we were excited to see how we could best meet their needs.
Princeton GSAR was seeking an apparel partner to produce a quick-drying quarter-zip long sleeve jersey. These shirts were to be worn primarily on Search and Rescue tasks, training and events.
Emily was easygoing, and a joy to communicate with. While I was confined to my Montreal apartment, she was enjoying the vast nature of British Columbia. She kindly shared a few trips documented with her GoPro to help me virtually escape.
A few months and 4000km northwest later (Covid-19 production speed!), their custom apparel arrived in Princeton, BC.
Shorty after, this amazing feedback made our day: "Shirts are fricken radddd. Everyone is amazed and amped with the colours and fit and soooo good."
Bonus: they sent us this fantastic video!!
It's always a pleasure to work with such genuine people. It creates a strong bond which builds up our sense of community. It's really important to us at VC to be more than just an apparel company, and customers like Emily and Princeton GSAR help make that a reality.
We're looking forward to future collaborations with Princeton GSAR, and we'll be sure to heed their invitation and let them know about our next travels to BC!
