ATHLETE-LED DESIGN

TEST. ITERATE. REPEAT.

The only way to become the best is to work with the best. To create gear that’s built to perform at the highest levels, we collaborate with a team of some of the most obsessed and passionate athletes in the world – on the design, development, and testing of our gear. Ultimately, our goal is simple: to create gear worthy of the world’s top athletes.

Fight Short Field Test

FIELD TEST

Richie Van Houten’s fitness resume is impressive: a former professional MMA fighter, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black belt, and brown belt No-Gi world champ, he now owns and operates his own gym in Hoboken. Newer to the Ten Thousand athlete team, Richie stresses he’s been wearing Ten Thousand gear for far longer than the five months he’s been with the company and he was absolutely stoked to take the Fight Shorts through a proper Field Test. see more

Filson Field Test

FIELD TEST

At Ten Thousand, all our gear is built for toughness. The Versatile Shirt, Tactical Short, and the Training Crew Sock are some of those products. We designed this gear to be strong enough for the first responders whose fitness is absolutely essential to not only their own lives, but the lives around them as well. You can wear this gear to the gym, you could wear it on an off-trail hike, you can wear it on the job, and our dream was that it would wear the same no matter where you are. The only thing left to do was put the gear to the test, and we knew Alex Fitchler was the man for the job. see more

When it came to launching our first outerwear style, we knew we had to be thoughtful in our approach – it had to both look good for daily wear, and it had to perform so it could be worn after your sweatiest sessions.

Denver Athlete Summit

FIELD TEST

Our athletes are at the center of the design and development process. When creating every new product, we send prototypes to guys across the country who push the gear to its breaking point...and beyond.

The Speed Project

FIELD TEST

If you try to make sense of The Speed Project the way you would a sanctioned race - route, water stations, Biofreeze booths, where to watch - you won’t be able to. That’s the entire point. When they say #NORULES they mean it. There’s only one goal - to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas as fast as possible. Read On

Tideline Burner

Seamless Shirt Feedback

CUSTOMER SURVEYS

Last month, 1,000 customers put our latest Field Test prototype to the test and through the wringer.
