About

EVERYTHING YOU NEED CONVENIENTLY PACKAGED FOR WORRY-FREE DIVING AND SNORKELING. EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR AN ECO FRIENDLY OCEANIC LIFESTYLE.

Divehack's sub-aquatic The Ready Set includes all your diving and snorkeling must-have essentials, or "seasentials" as we like to call them. So you will be prepared for your next ocean adventure without the hassle of collecting all these items by yourselves.

Not only does The Ready Set solve most diving inconveniences and make each trip a little more exciting, you’re also doing your bit to protect our seas; every single component of The Ready Set is made with ocean preservation in mind.

Are you an ocean lover, but one that would rather stay dry? Get yourself some great merchandise, reef-safe sunscreen for the beach or limited edition silkscreen prints. 

The Ready Set is designed to be a beautiful, small, effortless pack with all your seasentials safe and securely stored away. Put The Ready Set in your backpack or dry bag and you are ready for your next ocean exploring adventure.

The 14 items you get with The Ready Set are carefully chosen after extended research and collaboration into scuba divers’ and snorkelers' must-haves.

Store all this items and your personal seasentials in The Ready Set. And wrap your cleanup bag around it.

The Ready Set contains:

  • Your own Cleanup bag
  • Reef-safe sunscreen SPF30 (50ml - 1.69 fl oz) - tube of sugar cane bio plastic
  • Diving mask cleaner and defogger (30ml - 1.01 fl oz) - tube of sugar cane bio plastic
  • Shea butter (14ml - 0.47 fl oz)
  • Pointer stick
  • Carabiner hook
  • Elastic band cord - Keep your GoPro safe, do your hair and more
  • Anti sting gel for jellyfish or fire coral contact (5ml - 0.17 fl oz)
  • Disinfectant (5ml - 0.17 fl oz)
  • Waterproof band-aids, biodegradable
  • Replacement tank O-ring
  • Space for keeping your diving certificates or bank cards
  • Scuba technique refresher cards (tips & tricks)

and last but not least:

  • Free space to fit in your own seasentials, like anti seasick pills, ear drops, contact lens box, multitool, your keys and more.    

 The Ready Set box is made out of recycled EPP - the material of old fish cooler boxes and more.

 Will you protect the sea and it's aquatic life too? YES! This cool gear is mostly made of recyclable materials and using it does your part to protect the environment. For example, the reef-safe sunscreen doesn’t harm our coral reefs like most other sun creams; the same goes for the mask cleaner and defogger. The Ready Set box is also made of recycled materials, and to ensure you to make the seastainable difference every time you go under, you'll have your own Cleanup bag with you to get rid of the "plastic soup" ocean. Imagine what would happen if every ocean lover took a few pieces of plastic every day :-)

Divehack works by the principle of 'no harm to humans, animals and nature'. So you'll get your products wrapped in paper, your sunscreen tube is made of sugar cane bio plastic and your bio cotton t-shirt is printed with non-toxic ink. Also Divehack will use 5% of it's profits to start initiatives with scuba diving schools to organise beach cleanups.

As Jacques Cousteau said: "People protect what they love!"

Extended research and prototyping

We have done extensive research and more than 100 interviews with divers and snorkelers to get to the ultimate layout and content for The Ready Set. We've created multiple prototypes to get the right look and spoken to many researchers to develop products to minimise our environmental footprint. Or as divers say: leave nothing but bubbles.

Now it's time for production. To guarantee the best seastainable products for a reasonable price, we need to produce them in a big batch; The Ready Set box requires a matrix to  press the recycled materials together to store and secure your seasentials, and to ensure you'll get the ideal sunscreen to help you protect your skin. We still need to take a few steps in Research and Development to create the best recipe. 

Why 100k?

Yes, it's a big goal. We calculated this sum is needed to start production. Although the prototype is producible, we need to make a matrix to press the recycled EPP materials (20k) and we need to get R&D and all kinds of tests for making the sunscreen. Starts with 600 liter (132 gallon) minimum production (25k). Production for all products goes in a minimum of 500 or 1000, so we need production capital to do so. Also for the merchandise, all bio coton and fair production manners, we can start with 250 pieces per style.

Timeline

When this Kickstarer campaign is done, we can give an immediate GO to our production partners. The prototype of The Ready Set is already in its third fase. That means that we can reproduce it straight away. The production of the cosmetics will take a bit longer however. For example the reef-safe sunscreen needs multiple phases of SPF and stability tests. For Research and Development we need between 5 and 8 months time.

About me:

My name is Martijn de Jonge and I am the founder of Divehack. When I’m scuba diving I’m doing what I love most. Even when I’m not below the waves, I’m always thinking about going back and how I can protect what I find down there. As an adventurer of the sea, who cares deeply about all the life within it, I was inspired by other members of the diving community and environmentalist to create real change, so I quit my job as a sales manager and started Divehack.

And what do I mean by 'real change'? Well, I would like to protect what I love most, and I have a dream. I hope in 2025 we are 1 million Cerfitied Reefers strong, all using scuba diving and snorkeling seasentials that help us, but do no harm to humans, animals and nature. Together protecting what we love, cleaning up the plastic soup and more, we will ensure future generations can enjoy the ocean and its aquatic life too.

 and ofcourse I'm not doing this alone! Meet the team: 

Everybody who worked to get Divehack started: thanks!

Risks and challenges

A lot of work and research has already been done to produce the Ready Set. When producing the first batch of sunscreen it needs to be tested again. If the test results are not as expected (low chance), new test need to be done. That will take two months of extra time.
