About this project
Outdoor adventures should not be complicated or limited by your surrounding environment. Most outdoor gear is built for a single purpose, which causes problems if you can’t find a flat piece of land to pitch your tent or two trees to hang your hammock between.
The Crua Hybrid offers the perfect solution and you'll never need to worry again about where to sleep. You can be confident your Crua companion will capably handle every situation you may face on your adventures.
- A highly hydrophobic Rip-stop Nylon coats the tent protecting the user from the penetration of water.
- The interior of the tent is also protected by a bug proof mesh to keep out unwanted intruders.
- Lightweight and durable aircraft grade aluminium arch poles, equipped with a shock chord system.
- Ability to link up with other Hybrid tents universally, so you can start your own little tent city if you needed to.
- Everything you need for a comfortable nights sleep while out on your adventure is already built-in to the Crua Hybrid, including an insulated air mattress and a tailored sleeping bag.
- In hammock form the tent can hold a total weight of 285lbs
- The Crua Hybrid comes equipped with two ventilation outlets which are strategically positioned to tackle the problem of condensation forming within the tent.
- With a total weight of 6.95lbs - including tent/hammock, insulated air mattress, and sleeping bag.
The Crua Hybrid is constructed from highly water repellent Ripstop Nylon with a hydrostatic head of 5000mm. This is sufficient reinforcement to survive even the heaviest of rainfalls.
It's not just another tent/hammock. The Crua Hybrid also includes a built-in sleeping bag and an insulated mattress for a comfortable nights sleep under the stars.
The bedroll packaging allows for easy setup.
Here at Crua Outdoors we strive for producing high-quality products for our backers.
The backers of last year's successful campaign have received their rewards and are now contacting us to share their reviews. It's thrilling that they are all so positive!
Risks and challenges
This is Crua’s 3rd crowdfunding campaign. We don't like to brag (after all who likes someone blowing their own trumpet) but we’ve gained a really detailed understanding of how to manufacture some pretty tough tents. Plus, we've had the ability to fulfill our consumers requests with each campaign.
It's not all been plain sailing, we’ve also been on the short end of the stick during this journey. We always did our best to overcome hurdles by putting the customer first and making sure all their needs were met.
To put it really simply, we now know what we are doing, so you can confidently believe in our products.
When we set a deadline, we dedicate all our strength and passion into meeting the objective. It becomes our sole focus. If unforeseen issues do arise, we will tackle them head on and with complete transparency while always keeping you, our backers in mind.
If our campaign goes well, we’ll end up a whole bunch of pre-orders for our new product.
Although we do have an excellent manufacturer in place, it is impossible to predict exactly how many orders will be placed until the end of the campaign. What we will do and have done in the past is strategically plan ahead to avoid problems.
Supply Chain Risk
Here at Crua Outdoors we maintain a growing friendship with our supply chain that we are proud of. This friendship has come a long way in the past two year.
Ever since we first embarked on this adventure it was our key priority to secure a top quality manufacturer that we could trust and would be capable of producing our sometimes whacky ideas.
Even though we are confident in our manufacturer, there are still some unexpected turns that can occur. Navigating container shipments across the globe can present situations that are challenging, such as customs and other governmental issues, which can lead to slips ups and delays.
Acts of God
Coming from God's country itself Ireland, we thankfully are free from disaster scenarios such as volcanoes or earthquakes, but what we can have more often than not is rain, although a wise man once said by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. With the possibility of Mother Nature unleashing her fury on us, we promise to get through it together and fulfill our backers’ requests.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
