About this project
Developed for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts by Professional Quarterback Mike Kafka, the Roo Inferno Series Hand Pouch offers a confident layer of armor against cold game-day environments and harsh hunting conditions. Whether you are on the field, standing on the sidelines, or sitting in the woods during a hunt, the Roo Inferno is the solution to frozen fingers.
The patent-pending, lightweight product is slim and sleek without bulk, and delivers warmth that is enhanced by superior insulation technology. Equipped with PolarTec Insulation and a Neo-Shield outer shell, the Inferno is wind and water-resistant and traps heat to keep you comfortable for extended outdoor time.
Roo Outdoor offers the Inferno in 2 distinct models - the Inferno Sport, designed for athletes and competitors; and the Inferno Terrain, built for hunters, fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Inferno Series is optimized for comfort and convenience.
The Inferno boasts an elliptical shape to complement the body's natural motion so that it moves as you move while contouring to your frame allowing it to lay completely flat on the body.
Both insulation and outer shell layers are engineered for minimal bulk to allow full range of motion. The Inferno is only 7mm thick (about the size of a pencil), and expands to 3.5 – 5 inches depending on hand size and placement in the pouch.
Inferno Series vs. Standard Hand Pouch
Hand pouches on the market today are boring, awkward and cumbersome. The Inferno is no ordinary hand pouch. We've done all the research and we believe we have designed the most stylish and effective hand pouch around!
We have filed design and utility patents with the US Patent and Trademark Office for all unique features of the Roo Inferno.
PolarTec® insulation fabric provides supreme versatility and performance under extreme weather conditions. Hi-loft fibers in the fleece create pockets that trap air and retain body heat, providing outstanding warmth without weight. This level of performance is critical when you’re playing sports, hunting, or hiking outdoors.
The soft and flexible Neo-shield outer shell creates a secure thermal barrier between you and the elements. With added wind and water resistance, our Neo-Shield outer shell is perfect to keep you warm and dry during any cold weather activity.
Belt & Buckle
The Inferno's tough and durable belt features a side-release buckle so you can take the Inferno on and off easily and silently. The adjustable belt fits most, ranging in size from 26” to 48”. The side-release belt buckle was selected to lay flat and mimic the shape and contours of your body for optimal fit.
The Special Edition Inferno Terrain Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity includes a patent-pending specialized belt to keep you prepared while out in the field. These special edition belts can hold up to 10 units of ammunition at the ready for a quick reload.
The patent-pending Roo Inferno belt features silicone grippers on the inner layer of the belt to provide extra holding power and prevent the pouch from riding up and down on your clothing.
The Inferno offers a convenient extra-large, built-in pocket sealed with a heavy-duty waterproof bonded zipper. The pocket is ideal for carrying personal belongings and other outdoor accessories. For example, it can be used to hold a cellphone, keys, coins, mouth guard, etc.
For added warmth, the Roo Inferno comes with a pair of air-activated heat packs that fit easily in the back zippered pouch. Heat packs provide up to 7 hours of additional warmth.
Laser-cut fabric that works in a similar fashion to adhesive seam tape bonds the zipper to the pouch creating a waterproof seal to keep your valuables safe and dry. The zipper body blocks water and directs it away from the inside of the pocket.
Using a bonded zipper, as opposed to a traditional zipper, eliminates stitching bulk, zipper tape, and weight. The patent-pending waterproof zipper feature is incredibly slim, flexible and light, as well as seamless.
Test the limits.
The Roo Inferno is incredibly versatile and designed to fit all of your adventure needs. Whether you play sports, hunt, fish, sail, hike, or anything in between – the Inferno Series will allow you to stay active and outdoors all year round.
We offer two models to meet every need: The Inferno Sport and the Inferno Terrain.
The Roo Inferno Series comes in a variety of colors. We currently offer the Inferno Sport model in Victory Red; Jet Black; and Nautical Blue. The Inferno Terrain comes in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity Camouflage, Blaze Orange and Hunter Green.
Each Inferno is handmade in the USA with extreme attention to detail.

Risks and challenges
If the Roo Inferno is successfully funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing of the Roo Inferno. Although we do not see any direct risks or challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present themselves during the process of production. We hope to run everything efficiently and ahead of schedule to make sure we deliver the best product possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
