About this project
I carry so much stuff
If you carry a phone, keys and any sort of gadgets like a tool, file, knife, etc. then you already know the struggle. All that stuff adds up really fast. What if you could fine tune your "Every Day Carry" items in under 30 seconds based on your plans for the day and be out the door, knowing that you have everything you’ll need to get through the day?
The Stowaway Line is a set of tools and phone case that you can reconfigure in seconds before you the hit to road and you'll be carrying less than before without sacrificing.
The Stowaway Tools are a collection of over 12 of the most popular multi-tool components and other things you might carry with you on a daily basis. Now you can carry only what you need and leave behind what you don't.
The Phone Case for the Stowaway Tools is the perfect fit for a number of common phone models. Each case allows you to carry a selection of four Tools with you at any time. They come in two versions.

The cases for these models are made of soft durable TPU material, will hold up to four Tools and securely mounts onto these phone models.

As a way to expand the reach to more backers, we have add these cases which will be made using 3D Printing to provide you a solid case design that allows you to stow up to four Tools. These are not molded like the iPhone 6 & 7 cases. See the pictures below.

If you don't want tools in your phone case, or maybe you do but you have too many keys or tools to fit, then this is where things get good. Select one of these Key Carriers instead of a phone case and it comes with SIX Stowaway Tools of your choice.
Each Phone Case comes with six removable Tool Caps and a Phone Liner. After installing the Liner and Case onto your phone, Just snap a Tool Cap on to the back of your Stowaway Tools and then pop them into your phone case and you are ready to be awesome.

These are some of the Tool Cap Colors that you can add-on to your cart when you go through the check out process on Pledge Manager.
Risks and challenges
Some of the items are already started onto the production path, but others are waiting to see how things go here on Kickstarter. Certain tools like the Flashlight require more expensive tooling/designwork and the 3D printed phone case options are good examples. We introduced the tools at the Outdoor Retailer Show recently and were able to get some great feedback which has allowed us to start the ball rolling a bit before the campaign to ensure that as many tools and accessories would be available in time to ship this fall.
One of the biggest concerns of backers is feeling confident that the campaign can fulfill as promised. We have two successful campaigns under our belt so far and to ensure that this one would be as well, we contacted our friends with each of the Key Carrier companies to gauge their interest in purchasing the tools to supplement their product lines. The response and projections was very favorable and has allowed us to order in somewhat larger volumes as a result. But don't worry, all the backer rewards will ship out in order to make sure that the first adopters get theirs first.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
