Sustainable Outdoor Apparel Startup More Than Doubles Kickstarter Goal In 6 Hours

LIVSN is focused on creating versatile, durable clothing for those who value experiences more than stuff.
Publish date:

Fayetteville, Arkansas: After extensive user testing, outdoor apparel company, LIVSN Designs, has launched the Flex Canvas Pants V2 on the online crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter. After 6 hours LIVSN had raised over $20,000, doubling their initial funding goal of $10,000. “We’re ready to go higher,” says Andrew Gibbs-Dabney, LIVSN’s founder.


The Flex Canvas Pants V2 are a new version of the already best-selling V1 Flex Canvas Pants. LIVSN describes them as “Slim-fit outdoor pants with stretch, articulation, and thoughtful features - with style you can wear every day. Own less and live more.”

This new design features revised roll-up leg system with a more durable recessed cateye button. Larger knife pockets allow for more carrying space. A wicking mesh interior liner along with extra deep vented pockets are featured to keep your things organized and your waist cool. LIVSN has put an internal zipper pocket for security along with internal phone sleeves. A diamond gusset and articulated knees offer freedom of movement. The eco-flex fabric is made from organic cotton, recycled polyester and spandex and is water repellent. Charcoal and Brown are the current colors available.

LIVSN is focused on creating versatile, durable clothing for those who value experiences more than stuff. Its tagline: “keep what matters” refers to the idea that without so much clutter, it is easier to live life fully.

LIVSN is offering a “Fair Deal Guarantee” on its goods, covering manufacturer defects for the lifetime of the product, as well as a program to repair items worn down through normal use, at no markup to the customer. This is intended to keep their clothing in service longer and out of the landfill.


LIVSN credits their amazing first day performance to their engaged 25k person email list and strong social following.

Looking to create a long-lasting and respected company, Andrew Gibbs-Dabney sees this Kickstarter as another step in a long campaign. Gibbs-Dabney notes, “We’re trying to create something special. Not only products that people want to wear every day, but a company they’re proud to support.” Gibbs-Dabney says, “We have high aspirations.”
