Experience ultimate travel comfort without upgrading to first class
HÄNGAR is the world’s first adjustable, lightweight and compact travel footrest.
Take it with you on any journey to experience more comfort than ever before and always arrive rested at your destination.
HÄNGAR is a must have for the modern globetrotter.
We have all been there, on our way to a new exciting destination, but before getting there we must endure long, painful and cramped flights. Twisting and turning in fixed seats not designed for comfort, for hours on end, struggling to find a pleasant resting position. Some of us will try getting comfortable by resting with our legs on the seat back in front of us, the arm rest or even stretching into the aisle (at the risk of being run over by a drinks cart....yikes!).
We know your struggle, because we've been there too and this is why we created HÄNGAR.
What is it:
Short answer: A refined compact, portable and adjustable travel footrest that will go anywhere you do.
The long answer:
How it works:
The footrest works as a hammock for your feet and enables you to get into a more comfortable seated position on long flights and trips.
HÄNGAR is placed on a fixed seat back or on an unfolded tray table, it has an adjustable strap that enables you to place it according to your personal preference making it easy for you to change your seated position whenever needed.
HÄNGAR can be used anywhere you go. On any form of transportation that has fixed seats such; as a plane, train or automobile. The possibilities are endless.
Being able to rest with your legs raised comes with many benefits:
- Improving circulation
- Preventing heavy, restless and swollen legs
- Sleeping more comfortably in a seated position
- Reducing stress on your back, knees and ankles
- Arriving well rested at your destination
Design and materials:
HÄNGAR was designed based on our own needs when traveling. Throughout the development process we have focused on functionality, a high standard of quality and aesthetics. All components are therefore made from only high quality, durable and light weight materials.
The product consists of 3 pieces, the footrest a hard removable insert and a sleeve cover.
The hard insert goes in the bottom of the footrest to ensure that your legs are well supported and we've added soft cushioned vegan suede to ensure your feet rest comfortably.
The adjustable strap works in the same manner as a regular shoulder strap, easily lengthen HÄNGAR by sliding the strap buckle over the strap.
For maximum durability and resilience the body of the footrest is made of 210 Ripstop Nylon, the same material that parachutes are made off. We've used YKK zippers and a heavy duty strap that won't fail.
Fitted for carry on luggage:
HÄNGAR is built to fit into any carry on travel bag or trolley. The footrest is compact, no bigger than a magazine and weighs less than 500 grams.
Take it with you anywhere and we mean anywhere!
To ensure you always have your personal items right at hand we have included side pockets for your phone, headphones, money and much more.
We know you prefer traveling in style, so we've designed a sleek travel sleeve cover to store and cover your HÄNGAR neatly when you’re on the go.
We believe in the build and quality of our materials, so much so that every HÄNGAR sold on Kickstarter comes with a lifetime guarantee!
The guarantee applies to the Nylon body and strap of the HÄNGAR. If the nylon or strap rip or break, we will replace your HÄNGAR.
Who we are:
We are travelers. HÄNGAR is made by travellers, for travellers. For years we have sought to make travelling more comfortable.
HÄNGAR Travel was formed in 2017 with the purpose of developing the HÄNGAR footrest. Co-founder and inventor Janni Hjorth came up with the idea on a flight from Miami to Copenhagen while experiencing the all too familiar challenges of trying to get quality rest while flying.
We have developed the footrest based on our own needs and travel experiences. The first prototype was developed in 2016, consisting of a cutting board and scrap textiles. Since then we have come a long way and have worked through many iterations and improvements.
We tested many, many prototypes ..
before getting the quality product that we are proud to launch before you on Kickstarter.
Exclusive to Kickstarter:
At the moment HÄNGAR is available exclusively to the Kickstarter community as we utilize Kickstarter to establish our first production run. As a backer you have the opportunity to be the first to purchase our product at a reduced price and be the first globetrotters to travel in HÄNGAR style. If we reach our funding goal we will be selling our product at full price through our website.
Project overview and time line:
Why we need your support:
Throughout the past year we've been tirelessly developing HÄNGAR, by testing multiple prototypes and continually improving materials and the design of our product.
Up to this point the project has been funded entirely by the founders. However in order for us to take the next big step and fulfill our dream of bringing HÄNGAR to the world we need your help! We have therefore turned to the Kickstarter Community for funding. We've already established a manufacturing channel for HÄNGAR, but we need your help to get our first production run off the ground.
We've been developing our prototypes with a trusted and competent supplier of quality travel products for the travel industry who is ready to kick off our first production run. However for them to start producing HÄNGAR we need a minimum investment of 5000 CAD.
Risks and challenges
We have already come a long way in the process of delivering a final product to our community. We have successfully passed the prototype and testing stage, and as we have already secured a manufacturing supplier we are now entering the production phase.
We do understand that unexpected situations may occur, and we therefore promise that throughout the funding process we will operate with full transparency with our Kick Starter community. We will be communicating relevant news updates and milestones to our backers on a regular basis.
As this is an all or nothing campaign, we will only start our production if our project is fully funded, otherwise backers will receive a full refund.
Thank you for showing an interest in HÄNGAR, back us by buying one of our products or donate a preferred amount.
