"I’m a product engineer for hiking apparel. I work closely with my designer to create beautiful technical products that meet the needs of sportsmen and women.
Concretely, we start with a need, for example, I want a waterproof jacket for 50€; and starting with a blank sheet of paper we’ll choose designs, components, assembly, accessories, and technical characteristics to best meet that need.
Once the design and all the elements are chosen for the product, we test it, whether in the lab or out in the field, to certify that our product can be used and branded as waterproof. Then, I work with suppliers to implement in production what has been decided."
"I loved the Desert de Platé: a beautiful climb, mixed trails going from earthy to rocky to grassy, and the view from the top is truly magical."
