“Gear appreciation post! A @iammikaze original!
Thanks Sarath – I love this gear… being in Winnipeg it had a little nod to Canada and was a modernized version of some of my old gear styles.
Loved how it came together – and rather last minute too but came out absolutely perfect. You’re a total pro.”
