HOW THIS PROJECT STARTED

The project began because of my dissatisfaction with the workout shirts available on the market today. I was discussing this with some friends at the gym one day about why we couldn't find a workout shirt that simply fulfilled our everyday gym needs.

Most of us don't like to warm up but we all know it is something that is too important to miss. However, it is so hard to measure how much warm up exercise is needed before you can go hardcore. We also have the need to carry our phones or valuables while working out. Arm bands can't solve this problem because they go up and down when you sweat and become an obstacle during bicep and triceps workouts. Since there is no product on the market today that can satisfy our needs, we thought why not make our own shirt design for people who have the same need as we do! And, that’s where REARM started from.

MAIN FEATURES OF the REARM shirt

At REARM we believe creativity is as important as knowledge when it comes to satisfying our customer’s needs. We believe function is as important as fashion when it comes to your workout shirt, so we work to keep our designs simple while maximizing the functional side of each REARM shirt.

REARM shirts are mainly focusing on solving three problems that perplex many of us when running outdoors or working out in the gym.

First, we applied thermochromic color change technology onto the REARM shirt logo to tell you when you are ready to burst. Nothing fancy, but I just feel good when I see the color changes while I get pumped up at the same time! We do our warm ups to reduce the 90% risk of getting sport injury and we all know, both pro and an amateur, how important a warm up is before we go for any intense workout.

Second, to avoid having a fight with your phone while you are running, doing your chest pushes up and even your bicep/triceps workout. We spend hours working out and running every week and we all know how difficult it can be to figure out how to carry your phone. And, of course many of us want our own music to keep us motivated and on track while running or working out at the gym. In order to improve your workout quality, each of our REARM shirts has a patented pocket design to take care of your phone, and your valuables, so you are always ready for some serious workouts.

Our third REARM feature will help prevent heat and sweat from slowing you down in your beast mode. Every REARM shirt has an excellent moisture wicking ability to help keep you dry all day. We applied the latest AIRTUBE technology into every REARM shirt and the micro-channels embedded in the fiber get water out five times faster than in a normal cotton T-shirt.

THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM THE REARM TEAM AS REWARDS

*1 cm equal to approximately 0.393701 inches.

*At this point of stage, we can only provide three sizes for men's style REARM shirts and the uni-sex long sleeve REARM shirt, which is medium, large and extra large. 

*We can only provide two sizes for women's style REARM shirts, which is small and extra small. We would definitely love to widen the size ranges of the REARM shirts if we can get enough orders from our backers in the future. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

 HOW ARE WE GOING TO USE THE FUND

We are planning to utilize 80% of the funding for manufacturing and shipping the REARM shirts and the balance will be used for marketing and promotional purpose. *Shipping fees world-wide are included in our pledge reward costs so the shipping is on us.

WHERE WE ARE AT THE MOMENT

We have been working on this project for years, made several trial production runs and are ready for increased production since everything has been worked out during the trial runs. Now we just need your support. To keep our production costs down we are only offering one color in this round, which we call Heather Black, but is actually more grayer than solid black. In the future and with your support, our team would definitely love to develop our REARM shirts with different colors in future funding rounds. Some likely colors include:

HEATHER GREEN
HEATHER GREEN
HEATHER BLUE
HEATHER BLUE
HEATHER PINK
HEATHER PINK
HEATHER PURPLE
HEATHER PURPLE

SOMETHING TO PROVE THAT WE ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK

REARM recently joined the Olympia Asia 2015 contest as a sponsor. We were able to give out REARM shirts from our production test runs to many of the contestants and were very happy to get a huge positive response and solid feedback about REARM shirts from the athletes that were in Hong Kong from all around the world.

Risks and challenges

Risk:

Production delay: We are now dealing with a small factory that produces quality goods to our standards. However we have also held meetings with another larger factory in the event we would require increased manufacturing capacity, in the event that we receive more orders for REARM shirts than expected. By having a larger factory for backup, it means that we will never leave our backers disappointed, but initial production could be slower as we would need to work with the larger factory to ensure the high quality we expect.
