How does testing work?
When you receive your garment, we want you to wear it as often as possible and for all different kinds of activities. The outerwear is meant to replace most all other outerwear, and the concept is that you should be able to wear it for pretty much anything. During use, you will probably notice things you like and things you wish were different. When that happens, we hope you take note of them and share them with us in the discussion area at the bottom of the product pages (jacket here, pants here). After a few months, we will send you a questionnaire asking you to share even more of your thoughts. That just about sums up what we expect of you when it comes to testing.

How close are the garments to being fully developed?
The Last is already pretty much finished. In fall of 2023 we will receive new products. These products will be the first batch that are fully developed, and will in other words be sold at their ordinary price. Today's design is very close to what will come this fall, meaning that you have the opportunity to purchase pretty much fully developed products at a fraction of the price, as a thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

What are the sizes like?
The garments are unisex. The jacket is a pretty standard size, and we recommend men to choose their normal jacket size. Women should size down from their normal size.

The pants are on the larger side. If you are a man between two sizes, we advise you to size down. We advise all women to size down no matter what. There are also lots of people that think the pants are too big when they first try them on. This is because the pants are slightly roomier than normal, because they aren't elastic. Most people end up finding out that they are the right size after all, once they try on the pants with a belt and shoes.

Can I make an exchange/return?
As long as we have the your size in stock, making an exchange is no problem. If we're sold out of your size, you can wait until we receive the next batch of products (fall 2023). Worst case, you can of course return the product. The last thing we want is to force people to keep clothes they can't wear.

Can you alter the garment for me?
We would love to tailor every single product we sell, but unfortunately we don't have the capacity or supplies to do that at this time. Although, most tailors can get the job done, and we advise seeking out one of them to get your garment fitted.

Do the products come with Lifetime service?
Because the price of the test products is so heavily reduced, these garments do not come with Lifetime service. If anything happens to your garment you are more than welcome to get in touch, and we will see if there is anything we can do to help.

Are the products waterproof?
Ventile is tightly woven cotton that can be exposed to a lot of water before any of it actually seeps inside the garment. The only exception might be hours of pouring rain, but a big part of Ventile's fame is the technology that keeps water out. (It was originally developed for water hoses at fire departments).

Are the products windproof?
Ventile is tightly woven cotton that can be exposed to a lot of wind before you actually feel it on your body. The garments are not completely windproof, but very close.

How well do the garments breathe?
Really well. Try for yourself!

Why should I switch to cotton from GoreTex?
Both cotton and GoreTex have their pros and cons. When developing The Last, we focused on creating a jacket and pants that can be worn in as many situations as possible. We quickly ruled out GoreTex and other fossil fuel materials because of their bad breathability, shiny aesthetic and frankly, because they are bad for the environment.

If you choose GoreTex, you get a wind and waterproof garment that will probably do its job for many years. If you choose Ventile cotton, you get a garment that is as good as wind and waterproof, that will last for many years (with some care and maintenance), that also has great ventilation, that fits pretty much every single situation and activity, and that is made with natural materials. Not to mention, it'll look better and better the longer it's worn. (GoreTex probably won't). Last but not least, cotton is much easier to repair.

We know that people have different prefrences and might not be used to wearing cotton outerwear. But for us, the choice was simple. There is something very balanced about wearing natural materials in nature 😊
