About

New Grub Hub Cirque as Shipped
New Grub Hub Cirque as Shipped

 The new patent pending Grub Hub Cirque was born from an inspiration to better organize the backpack kitchen scene, protect the stove from the wind and avoid people or pets inadvertently knocking over the backpack stove and pot.

After taking the new product backpacking in the Utah mountains, motorcycling in Utah canyon country and then backpacking in the central Sierras we wondered why we hadn't thought of this sooner! We also found it serves FOUR major functions:

1. Increases stove efficiency and reduces fuel consumption by providing a wind screen.

2. Protects the stove and cooking pot from being inadvertently knocked over by wind, people or pets.

3. Organizes cooking necessities such as condiments, lighter, scrubee and light weight utensils. Keeps items off the ground and at hand while cooking. (When traveling in bear country such as the Sierras, the organizer may be quickly stashed in the bear box while leaving the base unit in place.)

Removable accessory pocket organizes cooking necessities and keeps them off the ground.

4. The Cirque zips itself into a gear storage bag to transport the typical backpack stove, pot and fuel. There is minimal weight increase since the storage bag becomes the kitchen.

Other folks immediately thought it was a solid idea too! Without even advertising we ended up pre-selling many dozen and the inquires about this item have moved us to immediately get it to a real production run of ONE THOUSAND (OR MORE) instead of several dozen. So here we are, spreading the word to the WORLD on the new CIRQUE and raising MONEY for a REAL production run to get these made as fast as possible.

To this end we will be very pleased if you back our project with $3 as a token of support and well wishing. Especially if you are one of MANY! 

...But we REALLY hope you will watch the video and see how COOL and USEFUL the new Cirque is and GET ONE for your own camping trips. (And maybe get another for a friend!) We think you will absolutely love the Cirque and wonder why you didn't have one sooner.

The CIRQUE will add AWESOME CONVENIENCE to your backpack, motorcycle, canoe or other "travel light" camping trips while your help will add EXPEDIENCY to our first production run.

THANK YOU for YOUR HELP!

 Don't woof it. Get One!

Risks and challenges

What could POSSIBLY go wrong with a production run of a NEW item? Please don't ask and we won't have to scare you. Just remember that we have successfully produced the MUCH more complicated Grub Hub camp kitchen. Keep your fingers crossed for us and we WILL pull through.

Okay, seriously our biggest challenges began with sourcing the fire-resistant fabric. We had a setback and have had to order this ourselves for the factory. This funding is going immediately to fund that fabric we are purchasing ahead of production. The second challenge is getting a larger supply of the shock corded carbon tubing and that is underway. Next is relatively minor tooling for the carbon connectors. Finally, we must avoid typical delays like squabbling over finish details such as the color of the zipper pulls. And of course funding. WE are dedicated to getting these made, EXPERIENCED AT MANUFACTURING and will resolve the typical manufacturing issues. YOUR SUPPORT will turbo-charge the funding to move us forward quickly.
