About

THE STORY:

This is TAMAGEAR, Versatile Luxury! We are 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. We design, develop and create high quality outerwear for the technical, active, mountain lifestyle. It's what we do! Colorado, USA.

TAMAGEAR is a relatively new Denver company in the outdoor market and we have big plans to become the next winter jacket line. However, given the sporadic weather and retailer’s inability or lack of initiative to bring on new brands, we are going direct to consumers and telling our story one customer at a time. We have decided to cut out the middleman by going direct to the consumer, providing extremely high value, technical utility and functionality for a very affordable price. 

We realized a problem where the major brands are eliminating added features and benefits while increasing their price due to brand equity alone. For what you pay for a named-brand jacket you should be getting the most fashionable, most functional product out there, but you’re not. In most cases, these companies are increasing their margins by raising their prices and leaving out the most important features, like nice zippers, a multi-media pocket, additional pockets for keys, wallets, ipad, etc. They’re skimping and charging you more for it. We think there is a better way, and that's why we're here. 

Get a technical Soft Shell Jacket valued at $399 for just $149. The factory already has the artwork, technical packs and materials. We just need your help to meet the factory minimums to make them. If you're the type of person that likes high quality, fashionable and functional outerwear, with all the features and benefits needed to make your experiences more reliable, then TAMAGEAR has the PERFECT products for you.

THE COMPANY:

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.

TAMAGEAR was originally Inspired by the seven endangered species, 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). This is where the TAMA comes from, which can also be attributed to Technical, Active, Mountain, Apparel because this is what we do! 

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 feedback from friends, family and customers, the mid layers are the most popular, so we're starting here.

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 Soft Shell Jackets to market by Fall 2016.

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 interruptions.

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.
