Idea Inception

There is nothing like gliding through the powder on a snowboard.  The thought of fresh snow fills my daydreams from November to April.  

Last year I got 39 days in and Marc hit 50.  Meals and drinks on the mountain really add up.  $16 for a cheeseburger, $7 for a Gatorade, $4 for a pack of M&Ms, $3 for a apple.  $30 for one lunch full of things that you can buy at the supermarket for under $5.  

We started carrying lunches in our pocket, but if you fall, you land on your lunch, and landing on your favorite beverage hurts.  Necessity is the mother of invention.  We got the idea to store our lunches in a bag that hangs on the back of a snowboards high back.  

The Development

The first units were hand sewn on Marc's mothers old Singer sewing machine. We tested various design features on the slopes to see  how it affected the performance of the snowboard (rode through deep powder with no noticeable performance issues), what we could fit inside (our whole lunch - even a pint of cherry tomatoes), and how the material inside was affected (bonus feature - refrigeration!)  

We have done over 100 slope development trials with a number of design improvements in between.

The Buzz

Liftees and fellow boarders stop us in line or on the mountain and ask where we got our bags.  After being stopped every day we thought we need to bring this to the world!   We are here on Kickstarter to fund a large scale manufacturing run.

Please help make us a success by sharing and supporting our project.  

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter launch. The biggest concern is the unknown. Because we both have a lot of experience with manufacturing we are most concerned about how the Kickstarter interface works for exporting all the contact and shipping information of the backers.
