Update #4

Samples are here! Give us your feedback on colors!

9 comments

Hi everyone.  I just received 6 sample sets from our manufacturing partner.  I'm very happy with them overall and there are just a couple issues I need to sort out before giving them the go-ahead to produce our first run for kickstarter backers.  (Plus we need to get more backers of course... hint hint ;)  )

I'd like to get YOUR feedback on color:

I've attached a photo of one of the samples above so you can see the colors we have so far.  Should we try to get the powdercoat (frame paint) color to match the straps?  Or should we keep the frame as-is and make the color difference a bit more distinct by asking for a deeper orange color on the straps?  Or something else?  I'm taking feedback from anyone who cares to comment, but I will of course give the most consideration to feedback from backers.  Thanks again for your support!

I also included a complete folded set in a sample drawstring bag so you can see the folded size (baseball cap for size reference).  This set still has a bunch of packing material inside so the actual packed size is even smaller.
