ACAI Outdoorwear and Adventure Queens Community – a perfect partnership
We are thrilled to announce that Adventure Queens has become a Community Partner of ACAI Outdoorswear. ACAI and the Adventure Queens community have a shared passion for supporting women in the outdoors, which makes for a perfect partnership.
We’re really excited to be partnering with ACAI. We know that clothing that fits well and makes us feel confident outdoors is important to the AQ community, and it’s great to see a woman-led business taking on this challenge and succeeding.
Through its clothing and Community Partnerships, ACAI strives to put women first in the outdoors, breaking down the barriers which many feel prevent them from experiencing the natural world, which is exactly the same mission of Adventure Queens.
What are ACAI Community Partnerships?
ACAI launched its Community Partnerships in the autumn of 2022 and AQ is one of their first community partners. The partnerships are supported by the ACAI Outdoorsing Fund; which was created specifically to support community groups who inspire more women to get outdoors.
Why is ACAI partnering with Adventure Queens?
AQ and ACAI are joining forces to showcase each other to their respective communities with the shared aim of reaching as many women as possible.
ACAI’s mission is to inspire more women to get outdoors and they recognise that community groups such as AQ are key to that mission by supporting women to connect with each other, spend time outdoors, and experience the wellbeing benefits of spending time in nature. Supporting women’s outdoor community groups like AQ is one way ACAI can encourage more women to be confident and comfortable outdoors.
What will the ACAI x Adventure Queens partnership do?
- Both ACAI and AQ communities will see regular updates from each other across their websites and social channels with the help of our ACAI Ambassadors.
- The AQ community will support ACAI with insight, knowledge and product development, bringing their wealth of expertise to ACAI so its women’s outdoorwear can be refined and enhanced.
- Every month one of our great AQ volunteers will receive a pair of ACAI trousers.
What difference will the partnership make?
- ACAI’s support will enable AQ to continue its work to support the community and reach out to more women.
- ACAI’s support will enable AQ to run a weekend Hills Skills course for 12 women who are not already active outdoors but want to be.
A word from ACAI’s Founder Kasia…
“My drive in creating ACAI was built from an experience of having my confidence knocked whilst out hiking. I wanted to give women an outdoorwear brand they could turn to not just for functionality and performance, but also for fit and style. Arming women with the right clothing to give them confidence in the outdoors is what ACAI is all about. So I can’t wait to see the adventures this partnership with AQ will take us on, together reaching as many women as we can with the message: ‘find your confidence in the outdoors’.”
We know that many people in the AQ community already love ACAI clothing and have their trousers and tops in their outdoor wardrobes. Here are the AQ top 3 ACAI products and why we look forward to wearing them so much.
Thermal Skinny Outdoor Trousers – I love these in Autumn and Winter – nice and warm and water repellent!’
Outdoor Fleece Hoodie – ‘So comfortable and cosy I didn’t want to take it off. Great to pull on over base layers for local rambles and dog walks’
Aventurite Stretch Skinny Outdoor Trousers – ‘I wore these almost non-stop for a 3 week long-distance hike – they saw me through river crossings and over mountain passes looking as good as new at the end!’
Want to know more?
On 5th December we’ll be having an on-line chat with Kasia and Talli from ACAI – talking about the development of their clothing and their plans for the Outdoorsing Fund – look out for full details and the invite link.
The ACAI x Adventure Queens Community Partnership formally launches on 21st November 2022. In early 2023 members from both organisations will meet up to hike into ACAI’s closest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Clwydian Range in north Wales.
