Ryan Windus, a hiker, musician, and nursing student from Portland, Oregon, founded Senchi Designs in October 2020. The brand gained popularity for its ultralight and ultra warm fleece hoodies, which became a hit among outdoor enthusiasts through online platforms. Senchi Designs adopts a limited-release approach, producing handsewn batches that quickly sell out to a dedicated community of ultralight gear enthusiasts, reminiscent of the excitement often seen in streetwear fashion.
Senchi Designs specializes in creating versatile and efficient gear for adventurous individuals. Their active insulation fleece is designed to adapt to the user's needs, offering breathability during intense physical activity and insulation for static conditions.
Utilizing Polartec Alpha Direct insulation, the brand eliminates the need for backing fabric, resulting in exceptional breathability and moisture management in lightweight garments.
