About this project

TAMAGEAR is a high quality, fashionable and technical product line designed with your activities in mind. TAMAGEAR products are designed and developed in Denver, Colorado. 

The Perfect Mid Layers!
The Perfect Mid Layers!

The Perfect Mid-Layer is inspired by the Saddleback Tamarin monkeys. The Saddleback mid layer is your everyday around town fashion statement. Known in the wild to have the ability to leap through trees and branches with ease, this piece is designed for lightweight utility, sporty fun, and is strikingly flattering.

The Perfect Mid Layer is...

  • The most luxurious mid layer with high class quality, technical functionality and fashionable style. It's super soft, comfortable, and will get you so much attention from the touch and feel of it, even you won't be able to stop touching yourself. 
  • Built for life, guaranteed to last a lifetime and we'll replace it if it doesn't. Every mid layer should keep you warm and provide you with superior comfort. Why would you settle with anything less?
  • Strategically placed pockets for stashing your wallet, keys, etc. We think other companies are taking pockets and functionality out to make a lighter weight garment, but what they're doing is taking away your ability to compartmentalize. We add pockets and features to accommodate your lifestyle. 
  • Moisture Wicking / Water repellant. 
  • Breathable 
  • Reverse Coil Zippers 
  • SPF 30 
  • Anti-Pill
  • Sold direct. Super premium and luxurious mid layers cost between $150 - $225 in high end independent specialty shops and department stores. Cheap ones cost slightly less, but that's without the lifetime limited warranty and repair. TAMAGEAR is going direct to get you the highest quality material and extreme technical functionality at a reasonable price.
  • The Perfect Mid Layer is so well made, we'll replace it free of charge. If a TAMAGEAR product is damaged by any failure in manufacturing defect, even after extended use, we will repair the product, without charge, or replace it. The TAMAGEAR lifetime limited warrantee & repair guarantee means we offer a full warrantee to the original owner of our products materials, construction and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. Rips and tears from extreme use, we will either repair it or replace it at a minimal fee. 
  • Fabric Material. The Perfect Mid Layer is 94% Polyester/6% Spandex.

THE STORY:

This is TAMAGEAR, the company that brought you ‘The Perfect Mid Layer’. We’re a high quality, fashionable and technical product line designed with your activities in mind. I’m talking thoughtful designs, awesome colors, and sex appeal.

It all started in a marketing class. I wanted to build something important, something I was passionate about, and instilled a high quality design and workmanship of the products we produced. With years of experience in the consumer products industry and a solid supply chain background, I set out to create a product line that was creative, high quality, and appealed to peoples comfort, style and active ambitions.

The plan was to build a full winter line of mid layers, down, soft shell and hard shell jackets. We've done that in seller samples and proven our concept. After initial feedbacks from friends, family and customers, the mid layers are the most popular, so we're starting here.

The Perfect Mid Layer is super soft, comfortable and stylish. It will get you so much attention from the touch, even you won’t be able to stop touching yourself. It is one of the most luxurious and fashionable garments built with high quality materials and technical functionality. It’s a polyester/spandex blend, and has four strategic pockets for functionality. It is perfect for fall, winter, or a cool spring day. These are going to be the best mid layers you’ve ever owned, guaranteed.

It is so well made; we’ve built it for life and it’s guaranteed to last. We’ll even repair it free of charge or replace it if damaged from manufacturing defects. The TAMAGEAR lifetime limited warrantee & repair guarantee means we offer a full warrantee to the original owner of our products materials, construction and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. If a TAMAGEAR product is damaged by any failure in manufacturing defect, even after extended use, we will repair the product, without charge, or replace it, at our discretion.

Now that we’ve built these amazingly fashionable and technical pieces, we need your help to bring them to market. The factory already has the artwork, technical packs, materials, and they sent me some killer samples. Unfortunately, in order for us to make them, we have to order a TON of them. That’s where you come in. Check out our various rewards, at some levels you could get a TAMAGEAR logo T or hat of your choice, AND multiple options for both men’s and women’s Perfect Mid Layers.

The Perfect Women's Mid Layer comes in four fabulous color heathers. It is perfect for a fall, winter, or spring day. Wear it as a base layer or on it's own and wow your friends with your amazingly good looks.

Risks and challenges

With years of experience in supply chain, product and business development, this isn't my first company. It's rather my second and I'm fully committed to building this full line. We recently exhibited at the Outdoor Retailer and SIA trade shows with great success and awesome feedback. I've personally vetted our designers, manufacturer's and logistics carriers. We fully understand the end to end process from design, development, production and logistics in order to get our mid layers to market by Fall 2014.

At TAMAGEAR we aim to create, design, and develop the highest quality products for people’s active lifestyle. A number of decisions have been made to limit the risks presented to TAMAGEAR, thus increasing the likelihood of dramatic growth. However, there are a number of situations that could occur and significantly hamper the estimations presented in this plan. The TAMAGEAR team has analyzed each of these situations and is presenting the following mitigation strategies.

Risk 1: Customer Credit / Payment – TAMAGEAR will establish solid relationships with each of its retail outlets. We have implemented incentives to pay on time, such as discounts on terms that will timely receivables and bad debt expenses.

Risk 2: Delays in production / delivery - TAMAGEAR's relationships with producers/factories, as well as oversight of the production process and delivery schedules will aid to reduce any occurrence of supply chain interuptions.

Risk 3: Product Deficiencies – TAMAGEAR's number one priority is meeting the needs of loyal customers and active sports enthusiasts by providing quality products that are consistent with technical design and development specifications. To monitor the quality of products, TAMAGEAR has enlisted design, and development with thoroughly vetted suppliers and factories that currently design and produce the very top of the line brands today.

Risk 4: Poor public image - Because TAMAGEAR is a grassroots small company created by a passionate entrepreneur who wants to solve style, function and lifestyle comfort problems, there is an inherent risk TAMAGEAR could become associated with a group or individual that could place that image in question. To mitigate this risk, TAMAGEAR carefully selects its partnerships and those who represent and embody the passion that originally sparked the TAMAGEAR vision.

Risk 5: Loss / theft of inventory - TAMAGEAR will originally house its inventory at its headquarters location in Denver although in the future we will start the process of outsourcing warehousing and order fulfillment to a fully-secured site within Colorado. The current warehouse is under redundant 24/7 surveillance/alarm, as well as, insurance in order to reduce the risk of loss.

  • TAMAGEAR is inspired by the seven endangered species of TAMARINS monkeys in the wild and TAMA is short for TAMARINS. TAMARINS originate from the family Callitrichidae in the genus Saguinus. Tamarins are small squirrel-sized New World monkeys and vary considerably in appearance, ranging from nearly all black through mixtures of black, brown and white. Tamarins are inhabitants of tropical rain forests and open forest areas from southern Central America (Costa Rica), through middle South America (Amazon basin and North Bolivia).
