About this project
As an international teacher I fly a lot and love it, but the dry recycled air, bad smells, harsh lights, lack of privacy and cramped environment make it difficult to get a good rest. I was wasting time recuperating from my flights!
I needed an inflight sanctuary for privacy and protection. Ideally one that didn't lay right on my face, lightweight, breathable, and easy to use and pack!
After 3 years of product development and trial and error. We now have a SkyTent™ the new travel essential for inflight privacy & protection so you can LAND FRESH!
Our greatest request... "more choice"!
Here are the design options. Each color will be done in equal parts of the designs below. So you can have your favorite color and design.
That's where we are now, but how did we get here?
Yes I have sunken a small fortune in to SkyTent but it has proven time and again that it is a worthy service. If this project is successful here is the time frame and cost breakdown:
The smallest run of SkyTents per color is $3000 and takes 60 days to make and dye our special blend of fabric, make the cuts, print the graphics and sew the finished product. The minimum order of 4000 packages will cost $1500.
SkyTents $3500 x 2 = $7000
Packages = $2000
Fulfilling rewards = $ 2000
Total = $11000 (I'll cover the extra $1000 :) to make it an even 10)
The project finishes end of April. So we should have our SkyTents in Oregon ready to ship by early July just in time to ship in August.
* If we reach $15,000 we are very happy to introduce the organic essential oil aroma inserts!!
*Essential oil inserts have just become available. The complete packaging and manufacturing costs have yet to be determined but are estimated to be in the ballpark of $0.75 to $1 each (clip, cotton with sticker back fabric, organic essential oil, packaging and production). If our dreams are realized I can make these by hand myself, so they will be ready for the rewards fulfillment goal of August 2014.
Thank you for considering SkyTent™! We have worked hard to get here and are happy to offer the most innovative new travel product for privacy and protection on long flights so you can land fresh and make the most of your time!
A few reviews:
"SkyTent is the first sleep aid I've used during my travels that served its intended purpose. I'm normally jet lagged after 14 hrs of flying and switching between international and domestic time zone. Using SkyTent I felt fully rested and energized after I landed. I was able to 'hit the ground running' and didn't have to worry about getting adjusted to a new location and or time zone.
SkyTent was very lightweight and comfortable. Once I had it on it was very breathable which allows me to fall asleep within mins and stay asleep. It was as if I had my own private airline suite. SkyTent was very easy to pack (I stored mine in a magazine) and is a great product. I would highly recommend it to any who travels!"

"Typically when I travel my nose gets so dry and I often end up with a sinus headache. However, the SkyTent provided a more humidified breathing space, while allowing me to sleep well during my travels. As a mother, I wish I had a SkyTent when my children were younger. The SkyTent would have diminished the spread of germs that too often impacts children during long flights. As an international business traveler, I use to worry about all the coughing and sneezing on the airplane. With the SkyTent, I feel assured that I will arrive at my location in good health and with the energy to be productive."

"...After sleeping covering myself with a blanket to buffer the light, using a SkyTent was much more comfortable. I even slept through dinner it was so comfortable, fresh and really blocks the light. Thank you for the experience..."

"This product relieves so much anxiety for me. Not only during my flight but especially before I even get on the plane because I know ahead of time that I can be in my SkyTent and have my privacy, if I want it. I LOVE this product! I will NOT leave home without it. Thank you SOOOO much."

Risks and challenges
It is in our nature to be innovative problem solvers. We have been working on SkyTent™ for the last 2 plus years and with the same factory and have a very strong working relationship. I am very confident we should be able to easily fulfill our promise if this project is funded, we have already made successful runs of SkyTent™ product. That said we have recognized that unforeseen challenges are a part of the path to success and have learned to tackle these challenges accordingly should they arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
