About

 

How many times have you tried to dry your wet suits, towels and outdoor gear only to end up with your car seats soaked, a pile of soggy clothing, and a bucket full of regrets? Probably too many if you ask us. At Malo’o, we don’t think anyone deserves that, and the Ultimate Drying Rack is here to help.

 

Our drying rack simply hangs from the side mirror of any car, truck, SUV, RV — you name it — and includes padding as to not scratch your vehicle. It’s easy to use and even easier to hang wet accessories from. It can even be secured in not-so-easy-to-hang places with the included strap.

We make sure all of our adventurers, from surfers to trailblazers, are prepared with a drying rack that dries the wettest of clothes and gear, wherever their outdoor adventures take them.  

 

 

 

 

After a day of adventure in the surf, sand, snow or sun, some of your outdoor gear may need to dry off for a bit, and waiting until you get home isn’t an option, so we’ve changed up the game. 

The Malo’o Ultimate Drying Rack can attach to any vehicle, anytime, anywhere. It even comes with a strap to attach the rack to virtually anything, like a lifeguard stand or a tree.

Now you can enjoy more of what you love to do without the weight of wet clothes holding you back.

 

We also created our drying rack to easily collapse so it can be stored in your car when it’s not in use. 

Other mobile drying racks simply cannot fold or break down and take up too much space…precious space you can use for your surfboards, snowboards or other outdoor gear!

What’s more? The Ultimate Drying Rack is not permanently mounted to your car, so you can take it from vehicle to vehicle as easily as grabbing your gear and hitting the open road.

 

 

 

 

When your wet outdoor clothing becomes heavy and hard to dry, you can rely on the Ultimate Drying Rack’s strength to hold the heaviest of wet outdoor apparel without stretching it out. The two padded bars allow for maximum airflow over your gear like towels, jackets, gloves and more.

Other mobile drying racks suction cup to your car, leaving marks and damage — not to mention that sometimes they don’t even work because of salt or dirt — but the Ultimate Drying Rack’s patented design allows it to simply hang from your side mirror, leverage itself on the side of your vehicle and includes padding as to make sure no damage is left behind.

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started Malo'o (Hawaiian for Dry) because I could not find a good solution to dry my wetsuit after an early morning surf session. Often, I head off to meetings or to the office and don't have time to take it home, rinse it and hang it properly. It would either sit in a plastic bin in the back of my truck or I'd try to hang it on things throughout the day so it could be ready for a late afternoon session. I knew there had to be a better way.

I'm also an avid snowboarder and camper and realized that I'm always looking for places to hang my gear, towels, clothes, and other items to allow them to dry. I looked at what was available out there, and there wasn't anything that worked outdoors, everyday, everywhere, so I decided to build it, and Malo’o was born.

Hey, you made it this far down, why stop now?! While you might not be able to support us with a pledge, you can always help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make The Malo’o Ultimate Drying Rack a success.
