About

Introduction

When raindrops start falling, you need to know that you are prepared. You put too much time into your outfits and schedule too many important appointments to walk around soaking wet. You want to stay comfortable, and you want to be ready for whatever may come – including the most severe thunderstorms in the middle of an otherwise-sunny day.

Fortunately, help has arrived. After sending the HAILSTORM umbrella through three different versions, we are proud to present the final version – a superior umbrella sure to alter the umbrella industry forever


We understand the inconvenience of opening the umbrella when you have only one hand available. The umbrella automatically unfold itself with a press of a button.


Every step of the way, we have spared no expense in developing HAILSTORM. Unlike other umbrellas, our umbrella inverts upon closing, keeping the wet side closed off – and opening and closing with a single button press. 


The umbrella itself is made up of eight fiberglass ribs and a premium-grade stainless steel shaft, making it lightweight but durable. The ergonomic designed handle eases your pain by providing maximum comfort grip.

Wind Resistant Structure

The 41" canopy is made of two layers, one extremely water-repellent and the other rated for UPF 50+ in accordance with Australian Standards/New Zealand Standards (AS/NZ) 4399.

Anti-UV and Extremely Water Repellent

Since completing the latest version of our umbrella, we have also tested the fabric, which is rated at extremely low UVA and UVB detectable transmittance – 0.000 across the board, which is accordance with the highest standards for UVA and UVB detection.

UPF Result

This is a product months in the making. Since starting on the first version in January 2019, we have invested significant time and resources into making our umbrella the best umbrella possible, and we are proud to move forward with large-scale production.   

Our Journey

Color Options

HAILSTORM Umbrellas comes with 2 color options: Black or Teal. We would want to include as many color options as possible. However, this is possible only if we meet the Minimum Qty. When our funding reaches:

  • S$9,730 (US$7,000) - Red color will be available.
  • S$16,680 (US$12,000) - Blue color will be available.
  • S$23,630 (US$17,000) - Yellow will be available.

Help us by contributing so that we can offer as many colors as possible! Please note that all umbrellas are black color on the underside.


Dimensions

The umbrella weighs 0.95 lb (430 g) and spans 41 " (104 cm). Making it ultra portable for its large size.


Warranty and Product Support

We are so confident that you are going to love HAILSTORM that we are covering it with a strong guarantee: a defect-free warranty that lasts one year from purchase and service within 24 hours of your initial contact. Feel free to contact us - Our contact information is printed on the fabric label.


Free Shipping World Wide!

Shipping for all our rewards are FREE regardless where you are. We ship Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) -  Which means, we bear the risks and costs, including duties, taxes and other charges of delivering the goods thereto, cleared for importation to your country so you don't have to! In other words, we have paid for all duties and taxes for your country upfront so you won't have hidden costs or delays in receiving your Umbrella.


Our Fundraising Goal

This is where you can help us. In order to scale up production and distribution efforts, we are looking to raise S$3,000 (US$2,165) in start-up capital. Every dollar that we raise helps us significantly, and we intend to use this capital to pay for materials and labor. Whatever we raise above our goal will go toward an effective marketing campaign, spreading the word about HAILSTORM far and wide.

To say thanks to everyone who makes a contribution to this campaign, we are offering some outstanding rewards exclusively through this campaign, including discounts on our cutting-edge umbrella.

You don't want to miss out on this. Before the next rainstorm hits, make a contribution to this campaign and claim your umbrella.


Other Ways You Can Help

In addition to making a monetary contribution to our campaign, you can help us by letting other people know about our advanced, state-of-the-art umbrella technology. Spread the word about HAILSTORM on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you use. Our vision is of a city street, one filled with people bustling this way and that way, our umbrellas protecting them from the sun, the rain, and any other elements.

Together, we can make this happen. We appreciate all your support, both monetary and non-monetary, and we thank you for taking the time to read about our plans.

Risks and challenges

Our Challenge: The challenge we have is on our logistics. The year is coming to the end in just a few months. We foresee that many of the staff working under logistic sector will be going for holidays. Many people buy gifts during festive period, which adds on to longer delivery.

Our Plan: We work closely with our manufacturer to ensure the umbrellas to be made before End of Oct-2019. By end of November-2019, everyone should have received their umbrellas. Thus, avoiding the peak Dec-2019 period.
