      Count me in Mike if you get this thing of the ground again... great idea, just need to get the word out to more people. I'm sure I'll see these in the woods at some point. Best of luck.

      Sorry it didn't get funded, I swear this thing would sell great if you could get it into an REI or something. Keep at it!
      I feel like I'll be buying one at some point from somewhere not too far in the future.

      Keep me updated as well!

      Let me know if you decide to re-run a kick starter plan for this - I'm still in!

      What a great idea! I hope it takes off...

      Hi Gadgetman!

      Thanks for your support!

      A run in your very own color would consist of a box of 75 packaged hotfingers.

      You may want to write how many units a 'run' is on the $2500 pledge...

      This is such an ingenious idea! I am very surprised that you aren't all the way funded yet. I will be spreading the word to my backpacking friends. Hopefully this will become reality, since I am looking forward to using it. Best of luck to you and hopefully we can make this thing happen.

      Hi Phil

      I appreciate your support. Backpacking is quite a niche market, and so it's more difficult to get to the masses for a product like this. Every comment, post, or reference helps though.

      Mike, this an ingenious product, I pledged right away when I saw it, I am shocked that it isn't 1000% to goal by now!
      I'll do what I can to spread the word!

    12. Mike Oldani Creator on March 24, 2013

      Hi Kelley

      Thanks for the kind words, I'm doing what I can to get the word out and I really really appreciate you posting it up on your facebook. I hope I can send you your HotFingers soon!

    13. Kelley Callery on March 24, 2013

      Mike... need to get everyone spreading the word or your never going to get this moving... I think it's a great idea, so I have posted it to my facebook page. Need to get everyone you know to do the same. Really would love to see this product get produced! Need to do frequent updates as well to keep it in front of everyone. Good luck, and I personally hope you succeed, cause I want some. K

      I don't know if I really need this, but why not...

      I wouldn't recommend storing the first aid kit under one of these, though.
      First off, it means you have a way too small kit, and second, you probably can't be certain that it's 100% waterproof.
      But storing a bunch of storm-proof matches in a small zip-lock baggie, a small can opener, a bag or two of tea, and a couple of straws of sugar... Yeah... Wimps can also store 'water purifying' tablets there...
      (I ALWAYS use zip-lock baggies. Great for waterproofing, good for compressing and organising)

      Make mine Orange.
      Then it gets yet another use as a 'high-visibility marker'
