We’ve covered both Earth Studies and Camp Yoshi on Field Mag previously; the former outfitting aesthetically-conscious humans in their outdoor experiences, and the latter helping BIPOC persons connect with nature through customized guided trips. Today, these two PNW-based entities announce their first product collaboration with a limited-edition Earth Studies x Camp Yoshi fleece kit for chilling around camp—and at home.
Available today 7 November 2023 at 12pm EST with just 130 pieces made, the previously exclusive ESCEP Hoodie ($160) and ESCEP Pant ($180) are made from Polartec 200 fleece in special colors inspired by Camp Yoshi chef and co-founder Rashad Frazier’s favorite ingredients, turmeric and fig.
Camp Yoshi attendees began remarking on the fleece Earth Studies ESCEP (Earth Studies Cold Environment Project) insulation system pieces worn by guides on outings to scenic destinations with brisk evening temperatures. With that feedback in mind, the two brands decided to make a limited run of the fleece pants and hoodies available to the public with this rare drop.
Ultra-cozy Polartec 200 fleece brings improved breathability and insulation to the typical cotton jersey hoodie and sweatpant, cut in a relaxed fit for comfort–whether that means lounging on your camp chair or just an apartment couch.
Prior to the birth of either brands, Earth Studies founder Rob Darmour met Rashad Frazier at an outdoor event held by Snow Peak, “Rashad was cooking and we hit it off talking about the outdoors and these curated experiences that helped people connect with their natural surroundings. Since then, we’ve stayed connected and shared scouting locations to prototype feedback,” Darmour tells us.
We’re excited to see these like-minded parties put their heads together on some easy-going products, and we look forward to seeing what’s next. Maybe that’ll be an outfitted getaway to a geodesic dwelling, or just another set of rad apparel–count us in for either or both.
In the meantime, snag a fleece kit and get cozy for winter!
