The beach towel takes up half the space inside the bag, leaving lots of room for your adventure essentials.

 Since that first introduction to the ocean, we've been hooked. The sea and waves, simply, make us feel good. Urban Barrels is an extension of that connection readily available no matter where you find yourself. It is a way for adventurers of all sorts to look through to the world from a new lens. It's about discovering what lights us up inside and tapping into that whenever we can and wherever we are. 

We are inspired by people who have blurred the lines between their passions and professions. Humans that commit to their own ideas and values and pursue them with force and with passion. These people inspire us in every story we tell, photo we share and product me make. 

So Get In There! Tuck-into a barrel and share it with our community. 

Why Kickstarter? 

Thanks to a successful launch of the first Urban Barrels BagTowel earlier this year, we were able to produce two small production runs and garner incredible feedback from customers, friends and family.  We were encouraged to continue to innovate on this adventure bag and fine-tune the design and utility with our close manufacturing partner here in Los Angeles.

After months of sourcing, designing, sewing and testing the new and improved BagTowel, we are here today to ask for your support. We cannot afford to purchase the quality fabrics we have decided to build into the BagTowels. We also need your help meeting our goal so we can meet the production minimums with our manufacture here in L.A. 

$14,000 will help us source the quality fabrics we need while allowing us to continue to manufacture these BagTowels locally in Los Angeles. Any money raised beyond our goal will help us to introduce new and exciting products in our pipeline!

Thank you so much for your support!

Let's make some BagTowels and Let's stay Barreled!

   
   

Risks and challenges

We have a local manufacturer in place and found the best materials to build this everyday adventure bag Mat and I always envisioned. We have learned through experience from our first 2 production runs the level of Quality Control and Production Management needed to produce and deliver a quality product on-time to our customers. Our team will be hands on through the whole process from sourcing to manufacturing these BagTowels. We have left ourselves enough time for any unforeseen complications during the project to make sure we meet our deliver date in December.

Once we have reached our goal, we will follow up with each and every customer to ensure that we have the correct shipping information and that we are meeting your expectations.
