Manufacturing Update #7 (The Final Countdown)

Posted by Parker Thomas (Creator)

Hello Backers,

This should be the next to last manufacturing update!  The first rolls are coming off the line as we speak. Here are a few pics of the Red, Green, Olive and Navy colors below. They look great!

We are still on track for delivery in the next two weeks (it's going to take a week or two to get everything out). That means you will have your Tashtego Roll by the holidays.

The new colors (and all other colors) will be available in the store (www.tashtego.co) the minute the last reward roll goes out the door. We are headed to Yosemite this weekend to take a few pictures for the store. Join us on Facebook for some sneak peeks: https://www.facebook.com/Tashtegokits

A few of you asked for more details of v2. Yes, that’s a drapery cleat for cords! Here are a few pictures of each section of the prototype we are currently working on: 

 

What else besides toiletries would you like to carry? Front runners so far are makeup, bike tools, EDC (Every Day Carry) things like cords, chargers and thumb drives, bar tools, and wrenches. Should we make versions with those items stocked?

 Who wants to be a beta tester for Tashtego v2?

Let's roll!

      Parker,
      I too am interested in Beta testing. I am also very interested in the Lyme green color. Can I please get additional information?
      I am a Lyme disease patient, thus my interest in the Lime green color. I also think it would be an nice option as a first aid pouch and/or something to carry my medication regime.
      Thank you for your cosmderation, Melody
