Why do I choose to wear LegendBorne?
The outstanding quality, easy maintenance, fantastic fabric and fit, unique designs, attentive customer service, and ability to support a local Veteran owned company are really the main reasons that I have and will continue to wear my LegendBorne jerseys over any of the other options available.
First, the quality is exceptional, and I have put this to the test. These jerseys have held up to multiple tough OCR’s and harsh training conditions including the use of wreck bags, rucks, and weight vests. Through all of this they have shown very little wear and still look new.
They are so easy to clean. When sprayed out with a hose, the fabric of the jersey simply releases the mud. I forgot to wash my jersey after a Tough Mudder this year and left it in the garbage bag for over a week (ewwww). I knew the mud stains were going to be tough to get out, so instead of going straight to the hose I tried soaking the jersey in the tub with Oxy Clean, Persil, and Active Green for a few days. I then threw it directly in the wash, thinking with all the soaking it would be good — but it was still dingy looking. I took it out of the wash and thought it was probably too late to hose it out at this point but decided to give it a shot anyway. I put the hose on it, and the mud came right out like it was the day of the event. I was amazed. I had to stop mid-hosing and get a video of it because I was so impressed! I will always start with the hose from now on… I really should have known better and just started with the hose.
The fit and fabric of the jerseys is perfect for all kinds of activities. They are fitted so they do not get in the way on the OCR course or caught up in barbwire crawls. They are long enough that they do not ride up when navigating rigs, ropes, walls, etc… They dry quickly which makes them perfect for training day, race day, and even water activities (like kayaking)! They are also breathable which can be critical on race day! If we over-heat, we can’t compete 🙂
The designs are beautiful. I have been so impressed with each new unique design that has been released. It is obvious that a lot of thought goes into each design as a piece of art. I need to win the lottery so I can buy all the jerseys I would like to own, and still have some money left over to race!!
For such a small company, it amazes me how quickly LegendBorne responds to all inquiries and issues. I am especially impressed with their quickness to respond on social media. We all know that can get out of control quickly, but they always respond promptly and professionally. Issues happen, and it is the manor in which companies respond to issues that can make or break them. LegendBorne’s customer service and social media do a phenomenal job and should be recognized for it.
Lastly, I would say that I love wearing them because I know I am supporting a local, Veteran-owned company. I live in Indiana, and I have the pleasure of working with Veterans and Veteran groups throughout the state every day, and this allows me to continue my support beyond the work week.
I 100% believe in and support the LegendBorne product and the team behind the product. I have seen LegendBorne grow from a vision to a product over the last 7 years, and I can honestly say it has been such an honor to have been part of that journey, and part of the 2018 and 2019 Squad, and I will always proudly wear my jerseys in full support of LegendBorne!
