One of our favorite hometown companies is Phunkshun Wear. They make an entire line of face masks and balaclavas for all weather conditions, from arctic chill to summer heat. We've had a few of them on our faces, including our very own Engearment masks. Here's the full rundown of why we like Phunkshun Wear so much.
When we first arranged to meet with Cody Townsend to talk about the Line of the Year, we expected to meet a cool dude with large cojones. We didn't realize that his cojones were so large that he and some friends had developed their own line of belts - the Arcade Belt Company - to make sure those cojones stayed covered.
Even we get surprised sometimes by the nostalgia attached to certain gear. Freezy Freakies were never the most advanced gloves on the planet. They barely kept your hands warm and got soaked if you tried to make a snowball to throw at your little sister. But, when they got cold, they changed colors and cool designs appeared. They were the HyperColor of winter. And now, they're back....in adult sizes.
