About

The Hydro Holder sticks to any hard, flat surface and will revolutionise how you stay hydrated while enjoying aquatic sports and many other activities.

Attach it to a Stand Up Paddle Board, Kayak, Canoe, Prone Board, Windsurfing Board, Sailing Dingy, Surfboard. Even use it on a Quadbike!

The ultimate and best solution to standard SUP bungee nets and big bulky storage bags. Never lose a waterbottle again.

FAST AND SIMPLE TO USE

Reduce plastic waste and use your existing waterbottles.

GO THROUGH WAVES

There is no need to buy any additional waterbottles to go with the Hydro Holder. The Hydro Holder has been designed to work with most (we reckon all, but for legal reasons we will say 'most') waterbottles on the market. We recommend using a bottle with a groove/indent in it so that the strap can 'sit' in this groove. Most sports drink bottles are designed with this feature.

SUPER EASY TO ADJUST

The Hydro Holder has been carefully designed so it can be used with a single strap in many different formations. It will hold small and large items by using different strap positions on the Hydro Holder.

CROSSED STRAPS

The crossed straps configuration can hold both large and small items.

EASY TO TIGHTEN

Easy to tighten the strap before you go in the sea or while you're on adventures, by simply looping the strap around the corner.

 

KAYAK IN ALL CONDITIONS

EVEN GO UNDERWATER

  

CARRY MANY DIFFERENT ITEMS

Food, Clothing, Drinks, VHF Radio's and lots more.

  

SINGLE STRAP

The Hydro Holder has been designed so you only need a single strap. The strap is made of high quality shock cord which is UV resistant, waterproof, hard wearing, with an elongation of 100% (stretches to double its length).

The cord is made into loops manually by hand in Cornwall, UK. This labour intensive and costly choice was made to ensure the straps are of the highest quality and don't break due to a weak join.

The straps have been tested to hold above 20kg, which is way beyond the force required to hold items onto the Hydro Holder even in the roughest sea conditions.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

The Hydro Holder design has taken a long time to finalise because we have looked at every aspect of using the product so you get the most practical usable hydration product.

When the strap is not being used and is loose, it will stay attached to the Hydro Holder because the slit it needs to come out of is smaller on the inside than the outside. The strap needs to be stretched so the diameter of the cord decreases before the strap will be released from the Hydro Holder.

THE BEST ADHESIVE

We have teamed up with 3M, the leading name in adhesives. The Hydro Holder comes with 3M VHB tape attached to the underside ready for you to peel the backing off and stick to any surface you want.

The Hydro Holder will stick to any hard, flat surface (It will not stick to porous surfaces such as foam learner surfboards).

EASY TO APPLY

Clean the area and then finish the cleaning with the included alcohol cleaning pad. Allow the area to dry and then peal the backing tape off and press down on the Hydro Holder (make sure it's in the correct position first!). For best results do the application at room temperature (20 - 38°C). Allow 24 - 72hrs before use.

50% of ultimate bond strength after 20 minutes,

90% after 24 hours,

100% after 72 hours.

We recommend not using before 24 hours.

COLOURS

The baseplate of the Hydro Holder will be manufactured in white.

The strap will be blue.

The join covering on the strap will be the same colour as the strap (blue cord and blue join material), but the colour shade might not be an exact match to the strap cord colour, e.g. blue cord might have a lighter blue join colour.

White has been chosen instead of black for the Hydro Holder base section. This is so that the plastic base section can be easily recycled if not required anymore. Most local recycling centers still can't recycle black plastic due to the optical machinery used to separate the types of plastic.

Shipping

We will ship the Hydro Holder anywhere in the world. To keep shipping and environmental costs to a minimum we will use reduced packaging to make the product as light and small as possible. Hydro Holders will be shipped in padded postage envelopes so they arrive in perfect condition.

European orders will arrive in 3 to 5 working days after posting.

Rest of world destinations within 5 to 7 working days after posting.

Shipping charges for 1 Hydro Holder is £2 within the UK and £4 for rest of world.

Shipping charges for 2 Hydro Holder's is £2 within the UK and £6 for rest of world.

Shipping charges more than double for sending 3 or more Hydro Holders (due to a weight threshold). If you wish to order 3 or more Hydro Holders please order multiples of 1 or 2 from the rewards available, as this will save you shipping charges.

The Fine Print

Our prices do not include GST or other country taxes.

We manufacture and ship from the United Kingdom.

As we are shipping our product all over the world, and it would be impossible for us to build in the various duties, GST tax for each location through Kickstarter.

This tool can help you calculate import duty:

We cannot mark orders as gifts. It's illegal, so please don't ask.

Intellectual Property

The Hydro Holder is a Patent Pending invention. We have used one of the best Intellectual Property Attorney's in the UK to make sure our product is protected. We will defend any action that is taken to infringe on our IP worldwide.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter, but not our first business.
Our team has a lot of e-commerce experience as well as distribution expertise.
The main challenge that most Kickstarter campaigns face is problems with production and problems with distribution.
We have already set up the tooling for the Hydro Holder and we will have an initial production run ready before the Kickstarter campaign finishes. This has been done to ensure any unforeseen production issues will not stop the shipping of products to our backers.
When the campaign finishes it takes on average 3 weeks for Kickstarter to transfer us the funds. We already have the production process set up and ready to go, so we should have all the parts from the manufacturers within 3 weeks of paying them. Packaging and sending out begins at a rate of 100 per day. If demand is higher we will increase the volume of orders we send out per day.

When things come up, we promise to keep you well-informed and pledge to fix things quickly and to our backer’s satisfaction.
