About

[UPDATE]:Your worries about hip dysplasia have been heard! One of the goals of this Kickstarter campaign is to fund the consultation needed from child health care professionals to address any and all health related issues that might come with designing a baby carrier. Fear not, the end product will still be awesomely tactical AND safe, just as we promised.

---

We at Tactical Dad® believe that every parent should be prepared for anything their child might throw at them. With all the different obstacles you face in parenthood, the last thing you want to be is unprepared. But being prepared shouldn't mean you have to compromise your manliness and tote around a diaper bag meant for her either. We built the Tactical Dad brand and bag with all of this in mind.


Our first attempt to address parents’ need for baby preparedness was to create the Dad On Diaper Duty(D.O.D.D.) Pack. 

It comes in khaki...

 ...and black...


 ...and dads everywhere are loving it.

 

 The Baby Carrier

We released our Dad on Diaper Duty Pack back in 2014 but felt something was missing. It wasn’t long before we realized the existing pack needed a counterpart, a baby carrier. 

We wanted a baby carrier that not only functioned well but also worked in conjunction with our existing Dad on Diaper Duty pack. After some brainstorming and initial mockups we started working with local designers, manufacturers and child care experts to design and construct a bag that met all the necessary child safety rules and regulations. To date, we’ve been able to create a working prototype that we’ve used personally with our own children. The next steps are to expand on this prototype, start mass production and get these products out to you, the customer.

 

 

 

Prototype 1 - close but not tactical enough.

 

Mockup of prototype 2 - better but not there yet. 

****************************
Prototype 3 - ???

We've decided to go FULL tactical with this iteration and will post images when we have them. Rest assured, you won't be disappointed with what we have in store. 

********************************In conjunction with the design of the baby carrier, we have to redesign our Dad On Diaper Duty Pack to accommodate the attachment. We are in the preliminary rounds of this prototype as well.

 

The baby carrier has been under development for a little under a year. Once we have funding the plan is to expedite the prototyping process and finalize on a design within the year. If our plans change, you’ll be the first to know.

 

           

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have a handful of experts on our staff and at our disposal. We are confident that we can live up to the deadline that we’ve outlined. Obviously, there may be some hiccups along the way that might push our timeline out and in the unlikely event that this happens you will be the first ones to know. Regardless of the circumstances, we promise to deliver 100% of our products to our backers.
