What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

ABOUT

Being frustrated with breaking our bank every winter buying new and expensive goggles we challenged ourselves yet again: Launch high-quality goggles at a fraction of the price of comparable quality brands. And to continue to facilitate the clean up of 10 KG plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean pr. product sold.

After designing, producing and endless testing we're now very proudly presenting MessyWeekend Snow Goggles XE•ONE.

FEATURES AND QUALITY

 EASY TO CHANGE LENSES

THE WHY?

Frustrated with the high price tag for quality goggles we traveled to China and Taiwan and visited several manufacturers. As expected, there was a gap between production costs and the consumer price. We feel that there’s a player missing in the market – someone who offers quality and great design without us consumers having to pay way too much. We also want to continue our 1=10 program where we donate a part of our revenue to an NGO securing the clean-up of 10kg plastic waste pr. product we sell. This is our goal.

THE HOW?

To make all this happen, we need your help! So please, every single Euro pledged counts in making our dream of making high-quality goggles more accessible.

WHO WE ARE?

Back in April 2018, we launched MessyWeekend sunglasses right here on Kickstarter with the help from almost 1000 amazing backers. Today we're selling our sunglasses globally. The co-founders of MESSYWEEKEND are serial entrepreneurs Morten Heick, previous investment banker and tech entrepreneur, along with Marc Østerskov, FMCG, telco, and e-commerce marketer. You can see us, and a big part of the team in the video above - no actors. :-)

 All SUPER EARLY BIRD Backers will get delivery in December!

Product development & design process

Back in June we traveled to Asia to investergate a number of raw material manufacturers and eyewear factories. After a dozen visits we chose our factory based on physical working conditions, quality of current production, known brands in production and delivery times. Together with the factory and raw material manufacturers we had a number of prototypes produced in different designs and functionalities from which we chose the current design/model and sat specific quality requirements according to the FDA and CE mark standards, as well as our own. Working on the lense we reviewed several options, both in terms of design and functionality regarding ventilation and lens changing system. We chose the most clean design where you change the lens by bending back the top and bottom of the frame. According to our lens manufacturer the 6 vents on the lense have an optimal shape, size and placement to prevent fog which is why these are generic. In addition to this the prototyping process included selection of: specific lens type incl. coating inside and outside, quality of foam and number of layers, strap design and quality incl. specific silicon lines and positioning of these for optimal anti-slip, design of hard case and microfiber pouches. In addition to this for every product we sell, we secure the clean-up of 10kg of plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean.

This project is all about bringing high quality, great looking googles to the market at very affordable prices and at the same time honoring our 1=10 program by donating a significant part of the revenue to the NGO ProArtso. Our ambition is to gain market shares from the existing market leaders that are selling products with an immense gap between the cost and the consumer price. We therefore believe we are benefitting both end-consumers and the environment. On November 4th we’re traveling back to China to follow the production and making sure everything is on track.

Stay tuned for updates!

MAKING SURE SHIPPING GOES SMOOTH

We have learned from our last campaign, and we have partnered up with the best logistics provider for Kickstarter, making sure that you will get your MW snow goggles fast and easily. 

WITH EVERY PAIR OF MW'S WE SELL, WE FACILITATE THE REMOVAL OF 10 KG OF PLASTIC WASTE FROM BEACHES FACING THE PACIFIC OCEAN.

We have a partnership with the NGO ProArtso, and we have a focus on sustainable solutions. Our donation supports the education of local communities building knowhow of waste sorting and recycling. This setup ensures that harmful plastic is removed, the local communities become educated, and the waste is turned into a source of income for the local communities as they sell it for recycling. In other words: A smart little ecosystem is born.

Risks and challenges

The product: We have developed and tested our MessyWeekend snow Googles together with professional freestyle and alpine riders. Our manufacturer produces ski goggles for 2 out of the worlds top 5 ski goggles brands and has a long history of manufacturing for brands that are being used by Olympic athletes and focus is on quality, duration and fit.

The manufacturing: We've developed a strong relationship with our world-class manufacturing partner. We have been working together through multiple sample iterations and visits to their factory.

Delivery time: We are working closely with our manufacturer to make sure production goes smoothly. We have already booked production time so we can deliver all Super Early Bird pledges in December. We will do our best to fulfil all pledges as soon as possible, but we cannot guarantee 100% that our manufacturer will deliver on the deadlines in their contract.

Duties and Taxes
All prices are including VAT, duties/taxes inside the USA and EU/EEA. If you live outside of the USA, EU/EEA, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges. NOTE: While we wish we could help get our packages to you faster, we have no control over customs processing times.
