The renegade is a hand made leather pouch with every component being sourced from the USA. We cut, sew, brand, and assemble outdoor heirloom gear like the renegade in Bellingham WA, and are excited to bring this project to kickstarter.
We've designed this for guys and gals who explore, overland, hunt, and fish. Whatever way you recharge, it's meant to be used, and meant to be relied on.
We are American manufacturers who are passionate about making gear that drives folks to a greater love of the outdoors. And after going through too many years of disposable products and products that are meant to fail, we're dedicated to building outdoor products that outlast.
The renegade is a pouch that can be used in so many ways. It has two internal leather pockets and a locking zipper closure to keep your gear safe inside the pouch so that you can focus on what you're doing outdoors.
Phase 1 of our development included prototypes that are made from leather and wool. We were originally pursuing this pouch as a safe vessel that people can use to store small items like hunting licenses, chapstick, cards, cash, receipts, notepads, hairbands, and anything else small that is easy to misplace.
Phase 2 of our development turned from the pouch idea to more of a card and coins holder. The pursuit of this products locking or zipping closed stayed through this phase. One of the challenges of this project was making sure that it was easily manufactured so that the price of manufacturing was kept to a minimum while quality stayed at its highest place.
Phase 3 of development focused in on the riveted metal edge attachment and a secure zipper. in the upper right corner you will see our second to final prototype, the one that gave us the aha! behind this development. Its simple, secure, and designed without knick-knacks that break over time.
Thank you for being a part of this campaign! We are looking forward to the moment that you hand the renegade down.
Risks and challenges
Trayvax is serious about sticking to timelines and getting the Renegade to you quickly. These pouches are made from some very nice leather, and that will pose the biggest potential hurdle for us. In the event that we are not able to receive enough hides in time, we will have to find another supplier with the same style and grade of hide. If that happens, then there may be subtle differences between the first batch and the last batch because of the subtle differences in tanning technique.
In the event that this kickstarter goes hog wild, we will need to hire additional sewing operators to fill demand. If that happens, there may be variations in the style of stitching between each grouping of orders.
That said, we already have every US supplier and source available for the distribution of these materials and don't expect any delays. Additionally, as a company of manufacturers, we are pre trained to ensure that the professionalism and attention to detail in our sewing is lasting because the longevity is our promise.
Our warranty is against manufacturing defects, and that is to ensure your safety in your purchase. So if your renegade has stitching issues, it will be repaired or replaced.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
