Startup Outdoor Apparel Design, Prototype, Fabric Source

Posted last month
Only freelancers located in the U.S. may apply. U.S. located freelancers only

Searching for an expert in the outdoor apparel industry with experience with technical fabrics.  I have a Tech Pack currently that would need a little tweaking, and really looking for a expert in the fabrics side of things, from breathable, stretch, DWR coating, lightweight Polyesters and Nylons Fabrics to be used in pants, jackets and vests.  Once fabric has been decided, move to a prototype, so any experience with this would also be great.  I do have some comparable products to reference and general idea of the fabric type, weight, etc. so not starting from zero.  Mainly looking for someone to help me finalize the perfect fabric, create a prototype, and move towards production run.
The project would be working directly with me in identifying the fabrics, and getting set up for a prototype.  My schedule is very flexible during the day so no after hours type availability unless thats what works on your end.  I love to brainstorm and would lean in heavily on your expertise. Starting initially with a pant production then moving to a jacket and vest.
