Hi! Thanks for stopping by and checking out the project. Your pledges will make Underfuse a reality and will change the way you work out!
Underfuse is a performance iron-on pocket specifically designed for working out, running, and travel. It can be used to hold your phone, mp3 player, keys and cards. The pocket is joined to a special woven fabric infused with adhesive. The adhesive is specially formulated to bond to your favorite workout gear with a regular household iron. Underfuse has been tested to be as durable as the item your are attaching it to.
Why Underfuse? The current methods of holding your items while working out are inadequate. When you are at the gym or out for a run you always struggle to find a good spot to put your phone, mp3 player, keys and cards. If you put it in your pocket then its bouncing around when you run or falls out when you lift or do sit-ups. Many women don't even have pockets on their workout clothing! Underfuse solves this.

Will Underfuse work with my smartphone?
Underfuse is designed to work with all iPhone models (original, 3G, 3Gs, 4G, 4Gs), iPod Touch, most Android phones, most Blackberry phones, and all Palm/HP phones. If you want to know if your phone will fit just contact me and I will let you know.
Where should I place Underfuse?
Wherever you want! Thats what makes Underfuse so great. On men our experience is that it works best when attached to compression shorts right on the front of the thigh. On women's workout pants/shorts the front of the thigh works great as well. Women also have success attaching Underfuse to a tight workout top above the hip on the side of your body.
Will Underfuse bond to my clothing?
Underfuse is designed to be bonded to performance textiles such as those made by Nike, Under Armour, Lululemon, Adidas, and many others. It will also bond to other fabrics such as cotton.
How should I wash my gear?
Wash it according to the manufacturers suggested care on your apparel.
Why are you raising $11,500?
Great question. The factory needs to special order some of the materials to make Underfuse. Once they begin producing Underfuse they need to utilize all of the material so that they aren't left with any unused raw material at the end since they wont be able to use it elsewhere. In addition to that there is tooling that needs to be created for manufacturing. So when all is said and done the first production of pockets will cost $11,500.
Just in case
Underfuse has been tested to safely bond to performance fabrics (polyester and spandex based) however it is a good idea to make sure your apparel can handle the heat before product application.
