Mishmi Takin – Get Wet, Stay Dry

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-04-07

While delivering life-saving medicines to remote communities in Liberia, West Africa and in Eastern Himalayas, India, Kapil Dev Singh realized that his high-end, waterproof gear was not performing in the hot & humid tropical conditions. The gear did not breathe and kept Kapil sweaty all the time. Challenged by the discomfort and inspired by the zest for life he saw in these communities, Kapil started an outdoor brand with gear so breathable that it could work even in the tropics and who would promote health & well-being in remote communities worldwide. Mishmi Takin products focus on enhanced user comfort by maximizing air exchange between the inside of the gear and the outside. Ventilation-focused product design, highly breathable, air permeable fabrics, and Vibram Megagrip rubber, give our Footwear, Hard Shell and Soft Shell Jackets the power to keep you comfortable in hot, cold, humid, soggy, or any WET conditions … yes, even SWEATY conditions. Since our products breathe better in extremely challenging, rainy and humid tropical environments, that means they OUT-PERFORM in other more temperate or dry environments. This makes our products ideal for: Camping, Adventure Travel, Hiking, Mountaineering, and Urban Exploration.

Hi Kapil,
Could you let me know if these shoes would be available in any retail shops in Singapore? Before I purchase shoes, I would normally try them out physically, just to ensure the sizing fits. I have incredibly wide feet and have gone wrong buying online without trying them out. Thanks.

What a Great shoe. On 24 April, 2017 I have got my JAMPUI Mishmi Takin shoe which I bought in the Kickstarter project, and today for the first time, first day of a New Year 01.01.2018, I was put them on. What a great shoe. they are light and strong, has MegaGrip by Vibram to keeps you steady on slippery sidewalks. They breathable, and they waterproof eVent membrane by eVent Fabrics. I was walking in heavy rain and this JAMPUI shoe was just Great. The shoe was dry after my walking and even on muddy ground the shoe hold and I did not slip. Go to https://mishmitakin.com/ and buy this shoe, and you will be happy.
they are also nice and beautiful. It is value for money.
I wish you all a very Good New Year.

@sara, I will ship to you next week. @blackgauntlet, great that you got it. The warehouse had me confused on whether they had sent to you or not.

Yes! Thank you so much for your help. It seems that I *did* receive the FedEx notification but it was in my Spam folder. I really dread looking into it since there's plenty of offers to enlarge my... uh... y'know.

Hi Kapil! I just received my cayambe soft shell jacket and it looks and feels really great! However, I have ordered a small, and I can barely zip up my jacket. I tried to go back to the website and look for the fitting guide but I couldn't find it. I normally fit small in almost everything so I was a little surprised how small the small jacket is. It honestly feels more like xs to me. I'm just wondering if it's just me, or any other backer has the same issues. I'm backer #333. What is your exchange policy? Thank you

@joel, Thanks for the feedback. Yes, we found the fit issues through our sales on Amazon. The Cayambe jacket we have received now already has an updated fit. If you want, I can send you a replacement Qaras jacket with one size bigger than last time.

Review from Kickstarter
@Dennis, yes, Canadian orders are shipping now with international orders. Yours are shipping either today or Monday.

Review from Kickstarter
Kapil, I just wanted to give you an update. The kameng boots are absolutely perfect. The fit, the grip, the look and the stiffness. They remind me of an updated version my very old Merrell monarch's that wore out years ago. They were my favorite hiking boots and now these are. My wife loves her misti, though, being 7 months pregnant she can't quite zip it up... But it's kept her warm and dry at the dog park down to about 40f. My Quaras is nice. I find it has an athletic fit. It's a bit tight under the arms and in the chest. It's a very nice coat but I am unable to layer under it. I find because of that it keeps me comfortable down to about 35-40f depending on my activity. I'm 6', 150lbs so pretty trim...a tweak to the fit might be worth looking I to on any future runs Both jackets handle light to moderate rain nicely.
Thank you for your products and your communication through the whole process. I wish you the best with and will continue to look to your products as I shop for new gear in the future.

Hello Kapil, need help in confirming my shoe size. Not sure if I got it right. Unable to reach the link where I can manage the sizes. I have still not received my tracking number, so please see if you can make a change if required. My EU Size is 44. Thanks and sorry for the trouble.

@markwallace, your jacket has shipped. Everyone - the jackets are landing in US on Monday, March 6th. We expect to start shipping later this week.

Review from Kickstarter
@markwallace, we are still waiting for the jackets to land here in US but I have received one unit of Garamba from production lot for checking purposes. I will send that to you tomorrow. This is from production and is the final product. Thanks,

Review from Kickstarter
Kapil, Did the jackets get shipped to the UK and Ireland on the 15th Feb? Its bucketing down here. One would think shipping charges with your vendors would have been tied down before the product was ready to ship.
I'm eager to receive my Garamba but I want my one not one thats less than 100% perfect.
Kapil Dev Singh
Review from Kickstarter
@dennisturner, the ship carrying the boots was in Ft Lauderdale today. It should be in Tampa within a couple of days. We start shipping as soon as the boots get through customs. I am waiting for confirmation of their landing before making an official announcement. Kapil

Can't wait to receive my gear. My wife makes comments about my 'cheese shoes' when it gets hot out in the summer.
Kapil Dev Singh
Review from Kickstarter
@blackgauntlet, the jackets are still on a ship. I have a sample of Garamba which I believe will fit you. It is not 100% perfect and hence I had not sent it to you. But, I think I will go ahead and send it. If you don't like it or it does not fit, let me know and I will send you another one as soon as I get the shipment here.

Well, hope to hear from you this week or the next.
Getting pretty rainy these days and I hate carrying a pansy umbrella around.

Review from Kickstarter
@blackgauntlet , it is the same story for SE Asia also. We could not ship your jacket out of Vietnam. Our factory wanted $50 per parcel shipment as their handling charges in addition to the courier charges. We obviously could not do it. So, the jackets are also all headed to US first. I will announce the date when the shipping company confirms it to me but I expect to ship to you by the end of the month. Thanks,
Kapil
