About

 Welcome to the new FlyKandy Kickstarter campaign.

2 years ago we launched our now iconic Ridge DE Pro jacket on Kickstarter. Designed and created from the ground up specifically for free-flight pilots, it was the first of its kind and completely revolutionary. Since then it has taken the sport by storm, shipping to all four corners of the globe. 

FlyKandy began back in 2014 when we (Mike & Stew) sat down with a great mate of ours and paramotoring legend - the late, great Deano Eldridge - and decided to create a dedicated clothing brand for the sport we all love so much.

For the last 5 and a half years we have put blood, sweat and tears into creating products for free-flight pilots. We have developed many prototypes, designed, re-designed, developed and re-developed every aspect with the goal of producing the ultimate flying clothing.

And now we're back with 2 new incredible products. 

Building on the universal acclaim gained by the Ridge DE Pro, we are here to expand the DE Pro range with 2 outstanding new products designed from scratch with free-flight pilots in mind. 

We have worked closely with an award-winning designer who formerly worked for Rab, Montane and Mountain Equipment amongst others, and created some of the most iconic outdoor jackets in the world. Some of his designs still continue to set the benchmark in mountaineering clothing.

Combining his expertise with our extensive knowledge of the sport of free-flying has allowed us to develop truly bespoke free-flight apparel.

We know that when you're up in the air you want top quality, thoughtfully designed gear that you can rely on to never let you down. We also know that when you're on the ground you want top quality, thoughtfully designed gear that you can rely on to never let you down. That's why we have designed our new Horizon pull over smock and Notus trousers to take whatever life throws at them. So, whether you're a few thousand feet up, out exploring the wilderness, mountain biking, fishing or whatever - they've got your back. 

We're dedicated to being ethical wherever and whenever we can, that means at every stage of the process we will carefully assess what impact our products are having, both environmentally and socially. What's more, we have pledged to plant one tree for every jacket, smock or pair of trousers we sell, to help offset the carbon created during manufacturing.

Risks and challenges

Since our last Kickstarter project, we have learnt a lot. Mainly that no matter how much you plan, the manufacturing process always throws up a curve ball. We've taken these learnings on board and hopefully accounted for as much as we can.
