STASH YOUR KEYS, MONEY, AND MORE! PocketBands are great for running, surfing, biking, skating, swimming – even walking the dog!

You need a key, but don’t want to be held back by carrying the whole set. Now, if only you had a good place to keep it…

We know- we’ve been there a thousand times. Like everyone else, we’ve been using a host of makeshift ways to deal with this problem. I mean, come on, it’s 2013 and people are still knotting their keys to their drawstrings and hiding them in bushes!

THAT’S WHY WE’VE CREATED POCKETBANDS!

PocketBands have a hidden pocket that securely holds your stuff. They’re quick, easy, and give you peace-of-mind knowing your key is safe. Whatever you put in the pocket stays in the pocket. Never hassle with or lose your key again!

NEW TO KICKSTARTER?

If you like our project, you can become a backer by pledging (basically pre-ordering) one of the reward levels on the right side of the page. If we reach our goal of $10,000 before the time expires, we will ship you whatever the pledge level included. If we do not reach our goal, then 100% of your money is returned to you and PocketBands won't exist. So pledge the level you want and jump on Twitter or Facebook to make sure that PocketBands will be available for you and other people all over the world!

DESIGN.

We’ve considered every detail during the design process. Our prototypes continued to evolve until we reached the final design that was equal parts functional, comfortable, and fashion-forward.

MATERIALS.

We created PocketBands using a stretchy, surgical-grade silicone. The material is durable, water-proof, and feels comfortable on the skin.

EASY TO USE.

PocketBands are quick and easy to use.

PHOTOS.

ALUMINUM KEY BLANKS.

Aluminum Key Blanks are lighter and stronger than brass keys. We selected 2 of the most common key types and are offering both styles in 11 different colors. Take a look at your key and match it to the key style shown below.

REWARD LEVELS.

*Pledge the level you want today, and after the campaign ends we'll contact you to gather your order details such as sizes and colors. We can help you with any questions you might have.

PocketBands are available in (4) sizes.

  • Small (S) – Wrist size between 5.3 - 6.3 inches (13.5cm - 16cm).
  • Medium (M) - Wrist size between 6.3 - 6.9 inches (16cm - 17.5cm).
  • Large (L) - Wrist size between 6.9 - 7.5 inches (17.5cm - 19cm).

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?

So far we have selected a reliable manufacturer (works with Disney) and have produced samples in one size (XL).

The funds gathered here will be used for:

  • Tooling Costs to Create (3) Additional Molds for Sizes (S, M, L)
  • Manufacturing Costs
  • Raw Materials
  • Licenses and Legal Fees
  • Packaging and Shipping

SHIPPING.

We are trying to leave the smallest ecological footprint possible. Our products are minimally packaged and planned to be shipped in Polybags made of 50% post-consumer materials that are 100% recyclable. Shipping is FREE to the US and International Shipping is offered for the amount listed beneath the pledge level.

QUESTIONS?

When do I tell you which size, color/pattern, and key blanks I want?

Pledge the level you want today, and after the campaign ends we'll contact you to gather all of your order details. We can help you with sizing or any other questions you might have.

How do I order more than (3) PocketBands?

After selecting a pledge level, you have an opportunity to back the level a multiple of times. Simply click the reward level and enter a multiple dollar amount of the reward level you would like to receive. For example, if you want to order (6) PocketBands and (6) Aluminum Key Blanks, you would pledge double the dollar amount at Level 2. At the end of the campaign, I will see you pledged double and send you double of what the reward level included.

How big is the pocket?

The pocket dimensions are approximately 2 ¼ inches long (5.72cm) x 1 inch wide (2.54cm) x 3/16 inch thick (4.76mm). That translates to roughly 2 keys or 2 folded bills or a combination of the two. The pocket can stretch to accommodate a shape slightly outside of these dimensions. Furthermore, PocketBands can hold a variety of objects.

Can I fit my car key in the pocket?

There are car keys that will fit into the pocket (pocket can stretch slightly), but some of the newer cars have keys with computer chips and remotes in them that are too large to fit in the pocket. However, many of the major car companies have created “valet keys” or “plastic card keys” which are usually shorter and thinner than chip keys. You can insert most valet or card keys into the pocket and then lock your remaining keys in the car. Here are some examples: CLICK HERE

Are they water-proof?

Yes, PocketBands are sweat/water-proof. To keep very small objects securely in the pocket or to keep the pocket contents water-proof, you can use these 1" x 2" baggies.

Can you explain more about customizing PocketBands?

By choosing Reward Level 4, you will receive (300) PocketBands after your logo is approved (must be your own logo). Customized PocketBands may be ordered in different sizes, but must all be the same color (any color in the Pantone® spectrum!). We require that each size you select be a minimum quantity of (50). For example: (50) Small, (100) medium, (100) large and (50) x-large would be an order that adds up to (300), or perhaps (150) large and (150) medium. Here is an example of the printing quality from our manufacturer. CLICK HERE

Is the material safe?

PocketBands are created from a surgical-grade silicone. Our manufacturer has produced products for Disney and we have a SGS report ensuring the material is safe.

Are PocketBands patented?

PocketBands are protected by one or more U.S. and/or foreign patents or patents pending. We value our creativity and will pursue all legal avenues at our disposal to protect it worldwide.


Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The manufacturing process usually presents the greatest challenge when developing a new product. However, we've already completed the manufacturing process from start to finish and are extremely pleased with the results.

Our 3D designers have created the 3 additional sizes in a CAD program. The funds gathered on Kickstarter will cover the tooling costs for the molds needed to make these additional sizes.

We will be upfront with all backers, insuring they're informed about their delivery during the manufacturing process.
