It's like a wallet for your stuff.

About this project

There are some things you don’t always need, but when you do, having them makes all the difference. Like an umbrella when you didn't expect rain. Or flip flops, because fancy shoes are only comfortable for so long. To keep it available and out of the way we’re developing Neo Webbing. It’s 12 inches of durable nylon webbing fitted with 2 adjustable magnet assemblies (neodymium magnets, the strongest type of permanent magnets commercially available). 

The idea came about through our backer's feedback. Where is the best place to store a Fish Bone? So while figuring a way to easily carry paracord along with a few gear ties I came up with this. It allows me to keep both items handy on the underside of my trunk. And, as everyone knows, playing with magnets is fun. I soon discovered more uses for it. Keep scrolling and see.

Sounds simple enough right?

There are several factors we’re looking into. The shape, size, coating, strength, and configuration of magnets (or they won't slide properly). The texture, size, and closure of the webbing. Making it water proof. Durability. Material costs. With that in mind, this is where we’re at now. Twelve neodymium magnets, 2 laser cut backing discs, and 12” of nylon webbing. Your opinion matters to us. As this project moves along we’ll ask you what you think. We’ll take your input and make design changes to accommodate our backer’s general preference.

Who we are.

At the beginning of 2013 I thought up the Fish Bone Knotless Gear tie. Together with my brother Eldrick and the support of our backers the idea went from a wire coat hanger to a computer engineered, laser cut reality. You can check out the projects we did by clicking on my profile. What an experience!

Since then Eldrick and I have created Out-Tek. Out-Tek is the beginnings of an outdoor goods company. Our goal is to continue developing equipment that goes on the move with you. So whether you’re on your way to the gym or going to Yosemite, we’ll have something for you.

Risks and challenges

This is our fourth project. We've learned a ton since. Material availability could be a challenge. The larger an order the longer the lead time can be. Another challenge is large scale manufacturing. If we get to the point where we need help fabricating, finding that help will take time. We've had experiences where folks tell us they can do a certain service but then find out it was past their capability. If there is enough support to create a custom magnet, that can take more time as well. As of now this is what were expecting.

Production Timeline:
