FAQ PATH projects
Who are you and why is PATH projects different?
We are a small group of passionate runners that were dissatisfied with our running apparel. We were all in the apparel industry and were completely underwhelmed by the product available to us. What constantly went through my head was “The person who designed this is a designer not a runner”. So, we set out to create a brand using better materials, more running specific details and we started analyzing the smallest of details. It’s not a job or our business, it has become our craft and our passion. We are 100% direct to consumer with a single mark up and no one in between you and us. We want to build a brand and a community that is built on a single premise of making your run more enjoyable. We want you to join us and share your adventures and struggles and any product feedback that you have.

How do I know what Short or Base Liner is right for me?
We have created a short comparison and base liner comparison chart. It allows you to quickly compare the specs, details, and the design objectives of each product. If you still have question please call, text, or email us and we can help you with your decision.
Do you make shorts with built in liners?
We have spent years and thousands of miles testing shorts and liners. Our conclusion is that a separate Short and Base Liner gives you the best performance and flexibility. We are all in on our component-based layering system and currently offer no sewn in liners in any of our shorts. Once you try it you will never go back to sewn in liners.
When do you release new product?
We are constantly developing new product based on our needs as runners and feedback from our passionate community. Once we have the design perfect and we have thoroughly tested it we go into production. Our goal is make it right the first time and keep it available, so you can always come back to it. Making better product that performs and last longer is our goal. It’s not your typical hit or miss seasonal development model of business.
