FINALLY! A Light Weight Version of the Revolutionary Shape Flexer® Sunhat!
In the Summer of 2017, the "Shape Flexer Sunhat" took the the sun loving, crowdfunding public by storm to the tune of almost $250,000!
The feedback and reviews were overwhelmingly positive!
But, a few folks weren't happy with the weight (as the Shape Flexer's brim contains a stranded copper cable to make the brim flexible AND rigid).
So, we've designed a NEW LIGHT WEIGHT version of the Shape Flexer that that has ALL the features of the original, but only weighs 60% as much!
Even though it weighs 60% of the original Shape Flexer, the Shape Flexer Lite has 100% of the same features!
Fold-able, Portable, Pack-able, the Shape Flexer Lite is as resilient and tough as you are!
The Shape Flexer Lite's brim will not fold or flop in a head wind of up to 40 mph/65 kph.
NO amount of water will harm the Shape Flexer Lite. It'll hold its shape and not droop even in heavy rain (AND IT FLOATS!).
Thanks to the bendable/shape-able brim, you can Shape the Flexer in an UNLIMITED amount of styles! Here are just a few...
The Shape Flexer Lite also comes with an attached/deployable neck cape to use when/if you need some extra neck protection (while gardening, digging, etc.)
Bend the back UP, to prevent the brim from smacking your pack while hiking!
If you requires some extra ventilation, or have a lot of hair, the Shape Flexer Lite also comes with a partially or fully removable top crown!
For the Shape Flexer Lite, we've also designed the crown zipper to be hidden and well covered, as opposed to the exposed zipper of the first Shape Flexer.
The Shape Flexer Lite is also 100% Machine Washable AND Machine Dry-able. No more cleaning your sunhat by hand!
The neck cape pocket is also a secure place to store some small valuables like cash, credit cards, or hotel room keys.
The Key Change to the Shape Flexer Lite is that the heavy plastic coated copper will now be replaced with a MUCH lighter foam coated wire.
Unlike the copper cable in the original Shape Flexer, the foam wire will be easily replaceable if the need arises.
The Zipper around the brim also acts as protective barrier between the stiff brim and obstacles such as bushes, branches, boulders, bark, tree trunks, etc. This prevents possible scratching and tearing of the outer fabric.
We've also changed the main fabric of the hat to a thicker material, and the cape to a thinner material (all UPF 50+ of course!).
We're also now using a thicker foam in the brim than we used with the first Shape Flexer.
Okay Kickstarter, I now need your help to launch the Shape Flexer Lite!

Attention! ¡Atención! Achtung! Aandacht! Uppmärksamhet! 注意！ 주의!
- PLEASE don't be scared off by the shipping cost for one hat.
- We realize it's high, but look at the shipping cost for 2, 3, or 4 hats.
- You will find the shipping price per hat for multiple hats is MUCH LOWER than the price for one.
- We recommend making a pledge with friends or family, or getting extra Shape Flexer as gifts to bring the shipping price down.

Risks and challenges
Thanks to all of you AMAZING Kickstarter Backers who took a chance on me, and then waited patiently while I sorted out my numerous manufacturing problems, the risks this time around are VERY minimal. The manufacturer I'm using is on the ball, AND a large amount of stock has been pre-ordered to ensure that backers get fulfilled as soon as possible!
The only risk we see is if we get WAY more orders than we anticipate (meaning more than the 5,000 units like last time) and then it takes longer to get the product out.
But if that happens, everything is on standby and ready to go! Barring any natural disasters, we'll get people fulfilled MUCH faster than last time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
