About this project
When we designed the Venturi belt with you in mind, not a single corner was cut. "Details matter, it's worth waiting to get it right." -Steve Jobs
Every Venturi Belt comes with at least 5 inches of adjustability. You can adjust it bigger one day or smaller the next. The best thing about the Venturi Belt is: it can always be adjusted, but it's always adjustable.
We at Venturi Belt Co. have designed the perfect belt. Adjustable but always adjusted so it is ready to go every time. Casual but classy for every occasion, with no flap hanging out and no holes to slow you down. Made from the best materials available like military grade webbing that's wrapped in abrasion resistant ballistic nylon and a low-profile aircraft grade aluminum buckle.
Your Venturi Belt will be available in four different colors, black, gray, brown, and the BACKERS CHOICE will be the fourth color (voted on by you, our backers). We're sending our surveys daily with multiple color options for the BACKERS CHOICE belt color. We're anxious to see what you'll vote on!
We are happy to announce that we are offering a new buckle! We have received numerous messages requesting a black on black buckle. You asked and we listened, we’re calling it our MIDNIGHT BUCKLE! That now makes 20 COLOR COMBINATIONS!
We've had some requests for some close ups of each color, so here they are! Once we have gathered enough feedback on the backers choice color to chose on the 4th belt color we will include some pics of that belt as well!
We based the size chart on typical jean sizes. If you don’t see your size on the chart we’re happy to accommodate with any size you need big or small!
We've had a lot of great feedback on our video and how our page is coming along. We mentioned in our video that we are the little guy. We aren’t like some of those projects that spent thousands of dollars on hiring a videographer and graphic designer. We aren’t professionals, but we’re determined and resourceful. There is a lot of trial and error, and a lot of fun along the way. If you like seeing behind the scenes let us know in the comments and we'll add some more!
D and Brandon started building and designing as young children. Countless hours were spent on projects big and small. Of course, there was the usual bicycle jumps and tree house which led to countless inventions to try and change the world. In adulthood, this has continued with a thirst for understanding how and why things work. This has fostered a can-do attitude and a desire to leave everything better than originally found.
Like any good idea the birth of the Venturi Belt began at a simple lunch with a couple friends and a good ol’ American hot dog. We saw a problem, something we knew we could make better, and so the development of the Venturi Belt began. We have enjoyed developing and improving an everyday item and making it out of the finest materials available. We’re excited for you to be a part of the Venturi Belt community.
Risks and challenges
We had a goal to hit the ground running when we launched our Kickstarter campaign. We have made every single one of our prototypes ourselves. After doing rigorous product testing we have found the materials and products that surpass industry quality standards. We have concerned ourselves with not only the major parts of our project and product, but also with every little detail along the way. We’ve done our best to anticipate potential issues that might come up but there is always that chance that something unexpected may occur.
In the event that things don’t go according to plan, whether it’s a hiccup in the supply chain, manufacturing, shipping, or anything else, we are committed to be in constant communication with our Venturi Belt community and work to quickly resolve anything that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Unlike any other belt company we don’t want anyone to feel left out. We will accommodate you whether you have a waist of 10” or 75” and you will receive your belt at no extra charge.
We will send out a survey to select your size as soon as possible.
We will send out surveys to select your color preferences as soon as possible.
Venturi Belt is 1.3” (33 mm) wide and just over an ⅛” (4 mm) thick
We will send out a survey a week or two after our campaign ends.
Jim, Brandon’s dad, has been a master smoker for many moons. His recipes are top secret and usually only loved ones can partake. That’s why the Venturi Belt community is so lucky, it’s going to be amazing!
No, you will be able to select different sizes for your pledge. We’ll get that information from you when we send out our backer survey.
We wish that we could ship your belts worldwide for a few dollars, but unfortunately our quotes have come in quite a bit higher. The real shipping prices are higher than what we’ve listed but we are subsidizing some of the cost. We’re committed to make Venturi Belt available for everyone.
