Welcome to episode 359 of The Outdoor Biz Podcast, tonight I’m speaking with Forloh’s Andy Techmanski. Forloh is a relatively new brand in the technical apparel space and Andy is here to share his inspiration and talk about the unique new products and technologies they have brought to market.
01:42 How Andy got into hunting.
We were always hunting with three or four generations, of hunters and started as early as I can remember, three, four years old going out with a stick beating bushes and everything, right? Playing bird dog and you know, everything else from my dad and grandfather.
03:03 What was the inspiration behind Forough?
You know, spending a lot of money on gear that just wouldn’t work all year. So I started to brainstorm the idea and it was something that evolved over five years before I actually started Forough.
04:07 where’s the name come from?
FORLOH is an acronym for “For Love of Hunting“.
31:30 do you have any suggestions or advice for folks wanting to get into the outdoor apparel business?
I will tell you this, you know, when we got into this, we absolutely got into it to not hurt any of the other brands out there you know, we were starting something completely different. Made in the USA, using different technologies, so on and so forth. There’s a lot of room in the industry for others.
