Noso’s hometown, Jackson, Wy. Was lucky enough to be right under the path of totality during Monday’s ‘Great American Eclipse’. People from around the world flocked to our tiny town, hoping to experience the event. We were repeatedly warned of massive traffic jams and total infrastructural failure, but, luckily for us, none of that happened. The town seemed almost empty compared to the apocalyptic predictions made by the newspaper. Cars rolled lazily down un-clogged streets as they always have. My family and I decided to watch the eclipse from the beautiful ‘R-Park’ in Wilson Wyoming. We set up chairs and began the aching process of waiting for totality. The first hour or so of an eclipse is pretty uneventful. You wouldn’t even know if you didn’t have the glasses on. In the 20 minutes leading up to totality, however, half the sky went dark. The temperature began to drop and we literally shivered in anticipation, watching the moon slowly inch across the sun.
I know its cliche, but its hard to describe totality. The most remarkable moments are the first and the last. Watching the Sun flare out behind the moon is a breathtaking and remarkable experience. I was listening to Fucked Up’s ‘Year Of The Hare’, and I coordinated the silent passage in the middle of the song with the first second of totality. When everything went quiet, and dark, I felt the world stand still. Nobody moved or blinked. We were all enraptured by the sphere in front of us. The sky was dark, and stars were twinkling around us. Never have I felt more a part of the universe. All in all, it was a pretty solid experience
Its been a year since Noso was successfully funded on Indiegogo. This past year has been a pretty wild ride. We’ve started to spread across the country securing wholesale accounts with small retail stores and continue to educate and influence people about repair. Noso provides us opportunities to meet incredible people and do some incredible things. Its crazy to think that with a small dedicated team what you can accomplish in a short time. Thank you to all our contractors and vendors who helped us get to today — you rock, and you know it!
We are so excited for our second year in business. We can’t wait to see our patches saving coats across the world. We plan to grow slow, with our goal of Noso becoming a household name. We’re looking forward to hiring sales reps, securing distribution and maybe even hiring someone in house! We invite you join us on this adventure. Our customers, ambassadors and athletes help us continue to grow the Noso brand and spread the Noso Patching Love. We appreciate everything you’ve done for us. Thank you for all of your love and support.
We aim to provide you with the best repair products that extend the life of your gear.
