Revolution Parkour gets airborne in Thunderbolt Softshell Jeans

A few weeks ago, I was excited to discover Matt Antis and his Revolution Parkour studio was located right in my own neighborhood. I met up with Matt to find out more about his studio and of course to talk pants. I don’t know too much about Parkour yet but I enjoy the videos you can find on Youtube and I know that there is growing awareness of this dynamic sport. I thought that outdoor Parkour would be a great activity for Thunderbolt Softshell Jeans and I was right. Matt and his crew were very enthusiastic about the pants and we teamed up for a day in the park, as you can see in this 1 minute video:

It was great fun to be a part of this video shoot and we have more videos planned so stay tuned. The fellows in the crew have been giving me great feedback on their jeans, and in the next few weeks I will have some of their comments to post here also.

Our Softshell Jeans caught the attention of the Big Budha, an entertaining reporter for local news channel Fox13. He selected a few innovative products at the show to feature and have some fun with.
