About this project

LD West was created out of necessity. In 2012, we set out to create a stylish but functional and secure solution to a problem that we all face daily - bulging pockets from large phones and wallets. This is how LD West conceptualized our original LD West Holster. The Holster was our first product created with the goal of meeting style with purpose. Our Holster was a statement that launched our brand. With our mission of creating technical fashion, we have come to Kickstarter to introduce our latest statement of style.

Our newest addition to our collection is the luxurious LD WEST backpack, available exclusively for our Kickstarter backers. What differentiates this bag from the norm, is that we have designed a hidden zipper pouch to store some of your valuables like your wallet, keys, phones or passport when traveling, for example.

This hidden compartment is not only more secure for your valuables but it's only accessible by you with the convenience of never having to take off the bag to access your essentials.

The bag is made from high quality pebbled vegan leather with durable, smooth metal zippers. The inside of the bag includes a padded laptop compartment and the front pouch includes a built-in spring loaded metal claps to easily locate and organize your keys.

 

 

We are self-funded with no traditional investors. The money raised will allow us to manufacture the new LD West Backpack while focusing on achieving high-quality craftsmanship while sourcing top-quality, environmentally conscious materials and help us prototype and create our future products.

 

 

 

 

 

The Original LD West Holsters adjustable design allows for a once size fits all sizing. The straps that hold the holster together were created with comfort in mind. Similar to suspenders, the straps are adjustable with chrome metal clasps. The pouches are detachable, allowing for multiple configurations. You can wear the wallet pouch or the cell phone pouch on its own or wear the pouches with our "T-Fit" option.

The Original LD WEST® Holster can accommodate virtually any smartphone on the market (new and old), as we offer 3 distinct phone case sizes to choose from.

The Original LD West Holster was designed to fit the phones on one side and our unique wallet on the other. However, the functionality of this piece does not end there.  The holster can house many different essentials to match whatever adventures you embark on. Passport, mobile gaming, camera, external hard drive or mobile battery charger… the list goes on and on.

Every Original LD West Holster set includes a unique LD West Wallet. Our wallet has a slim profile with six card slots on the right side and two separate inserts sleeves for your cash. Created only for the essentials, our goal was to design a sleek and modern wallet to eliminate bulky wallet junk. Our wallet is designed specifically for the left side of our holsters. The left side pouch is only offered in one size.

Our timeline will highlight and depict the history of LD West from the very beginning, up until the launch of this project, along with the progress and steps required following the success of this campaign.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

- As an incorporated company, LD West has been creating, manufacturing and selling products as an E-commerce business with top tier customer service for over three years. We are confident with our shipping options and rates being offered to our Kickstarter backers. Having vast experience and knowledge, we will ensure our backers receive their items in a timely fashion. However, to process orders quickly, we will request backers to provide details such as sizing and colors of their items before the end of this campaign. We will be reaching out to our applicable backers via email. Please note, items will not be sent until payment is cleared.
