Andre Stone

Andre Stone, MESH01

Meet Andre!

Andre has been a tester with us since 2013! His favorite activities include Calisthenics, running (road, trail), soccer, and trying new things! Andre is a dedicated tester who loves being able to test out new products and help companies explore their concepts. He’s the guy who is super excited about the updates when a company launches a new model, and is constantly thinking about how my gear could be better – or raving about it if it’s pure awesome! Being able to be part of that process of exploring what works and what might need to be tweaked is something he loves doing.

Meet Brandon!

Brandon has been a tester with us since 2020. He enjoys and grew up playing soccer. He currently refs soccer at all levels, including youth, high school, college, and adult leagues. After years of soccer, just simple running was getting hard on his knees, so he looked into other fitness avenues and gained an appreciation for cycling, swimming, and hiking. Beyond that, he also loves to hunt and explore the woods with his kids as often as possible.
