    Pistol Lake Ryan Light

    Maybe you're getting your daily walks in, or maybe you're just trying to stay sane within those four walls. Whatever it may be, hopefully, we've got some much-needed ear medicine. 

    Last week, Ryan Light, our CEO and fearless leader, talked over the phone with Zach Servideo of the Boston Speaks Up podcast. If you've ever wanted to know a bit more about the man on the controls, here's your chance.

    Ryan chats about TechStars, CoachUp, his move to Los Angeles to run Pistol Lake, and our switch to mask-making in this uncertain climate.

    Pistol Lake Featured In Klaviyo's Piece on Human Touch

    Pistol Lake, Klaviyo

    Klaviyo, the site that houses and delivers our marketing campaigns, wrote an article examining the impact of the coronavirus crisis on the world of e-commerce. And, wouldn't you know, Ryan Light, our fearless leader, chimed in.

    As big companies like Amazon have struggled to provide a human element as of late – and who can blame them right now? – consumers have flocked to places where they know that communication is key.

    Enter: Pistol Lake.

    Here's how we see it, via Klaviyo:

    Creating a deep connection between their customers and their brand has played a critical role in helping Ryan Light and the team at Pistol Lake, a California-based e-commerce performance apparel company, navigate the challenges of the last few weeks. 

    Their community of customers has always been core to Pistol Lake, but the strength of the connection has been even more clear in recent weeks as the company communicated openly in an email about the dire financial risks it was facing.

    Ryan said that in response to his email, “Customers reached out to ask how are [you]? How is the team?”

    They also purchased—a lot. Pistol Lake generated the equivalent of a month-and-a-half of sales in a single weekend.

    Pistol Lake’s customers have always been fiercely loyal but, now, they’re also fiercely caring.

    “Our customers don’t want us to go away,” said Ryan.

    Hey, Digg Wrote About Us + Our Minimalist Joggers!

    Pistol Lake Minimalist Joggers

    Digg, one of our favorite websites – and the very same that CEO Ryan Light used as his homepage for years and years – did a nice little write-up about our Minimalist Joggers.

    Since we first launched them in 2019, it's been hard to keep them in stock. Here's a tiny excerpt: 

    "Whether the use right now is for casual, physical, or on adventures, the Joggers stand up remarkably well to just about everything. Even if we're all mostly staying at home these days, the Minimalist Joggers ace that test too. 

    'We believe that we're making the world's most comfortable and versatile menswear,' Will Sulinski, Pistol Lake's founder and Head of Product said. 'And the Minimalist Joggers prove that we have a legitimate stake in this side of the industry.'

    But another added bonus to Pistol Lake's comfy joggers is that all their clothes are made ethically in the United States, more specifically right at home in Los Angeles. Given their promise to never outsource jobs, they're able to work with local factories that pay livable wages."

    Pistol Lake is so proud to create these products that you guys love! Go read the whole thing!
