Two April Fools!

>> Tuesday, April 03, 2018

First, the local "Torchlight 5K" race noted on Facebook "ATTENTION! We have officially changed our name to the Jortlight 5k, and are now requiring all participants to wear Jorts during the race.

And then I came across REI's new product: the "Zipall."

Their website had more details:

But, for the first time ever, we’ve designed a piece of apparel so versatile and customizable it almost defies common sense: the REI Co-op ZipAll.

More than a year in the making, our new adventure jumpsuit was inspired by one of our customer favorites, the REI Co-op Sahara Convertible pants. They’re comfortable and attractive, with a zip-off design that takes them from pants to shorts. But why stop there? Why not four zippers per leg for even more adjustability? For that matter, why even stop at pants? We asked ourselves: What would the world look like if you could have a single piece of hyperlight, super-breathable and ultra-warm apparel?

And thus, the concept for the ZipAll was born.

I mean, I love this:

That’s not all: “The cape is my favorite feature. There have been so many times I’ve been snowboarding and going for a big drop, and I thought ‘I left my cape at home,’” Adam said. Plus, the cape doubles as a bib for those messy camp meals.

I actually wish that both of these April Fool's jokes were real...
