About

Hi, my name is James Thompson. My wife and I work out a LOT!  About 2 and a half years ago, in Arizona, she purchased us some armbands. For people who do not know what that is "It's simply a pocket where you place your phone or other media device while working out."  After working out for some time, I noticed she kept taking off her armband, so I asked her "why do you keep taking that off?"  Her response was, "because I am so small that it is uncomfortable when I do certain lifts or movements."  I then began to look around at EVERYONE in the gym, noticing ALL of the women either had their phone tucked into their sports bra or the waist of their leggings, while the men had them either stuffed into their shorts pocket or simply on the floor!

After some research, I was unable to find a solution to what was clearly a problem.  I came up with one myself. HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO PLACE AND HOLD YOUR PHONE ON THE SIDE OF YOUR LEG?  Over 2 years ago I began the process on filing patents and generating the first prototypes. Although the initial idea was to have a phone pocket that could attach to the outer thigh of leggings "by many methods of attachment," along the way I thought how cool would it be if the user could also hold a credit card and ID?  Some time later I also thought to myself, "how cool would it be if the user could also actually have space for a key? ooh ooh and also have it used as an armband with a removable strap?!"  I thought I was done, but nope, not yet! I wanted to make a product that was not restricted or one that people would not only use at the gym or while working out.  Another idea came to me - to have the pocket able to be strapped around the neck and have use of the clutch purse with the features of being use-able while inside the pocket. PERFECT for students to hold both their MOST PRIZED POSSESSION "their phone" as well as credit card, school ID and key. So, there the idea was born, and work began. 

Over 2 years later and we now have it. The brand name is "UNI" being comprised of universal, unique, unisex, unification and uniting. The name of this particular product for both the men's and women's versions will be called the "ADVENTURER."

After receiving the first round of prototypes, I was not happy with the product. It was not up to my standards.  Now, not only will it be the first of its kind on the market, it will also be made with the thickest, best quality material of any leggings on the market. The pocket will be made of a stretch material, allowing all sized phones to fit inside and breathe without getting overheated. 

I am being conservative, as I would rather have a low goal and hit it than to have a larger one and fail.  The funds will be used for a multitude of things (not in any order), such as, finalizing patents, product (perfecting, colors & implementing other styles in my head), website construction and trying to bring product to market before the bigwigs get a hold of it. I'm hoping this will happen just in time for NEW YEARS' RESOLUTIONS!

No matter what happens I am thankful for your time, donations and consideration. STAY BLESSED.

We will be producing both a new photo and video-shoot of final prototypes soon.

BENEFITS:

1. Having the product come as a 2 in 1 with both the pocket and the legging / shorts

2. Being able to use phone while inside of pocket

3. Being able to carry both ID card as well as CC and a small key

4. Having the option to attach pocket to leggings / shorts for working out, walking and hiking, biking, and not having to carry a purse 

5. Having the ability to also use the pocket as an armband with a removable and flexible arm strap 

6. Having the ability (with another attachment) to strap  the pocket around your neck for comfortable and easy access 

7.  Leggings / shorts also come with an additional inside pocket for extra storage if needed 

The only question to ask now is "WHICH OF YOU WANT TO GET "INTO" MY POCKETS?" LOL!

Risks and challenges

After a few trials and good testing, I honestly do not see any risk. Everyone who has heard about and or tested them out absolutely love them
