A little fun ;) "Awesome product! I'm in. And Brenda- you and your daughters have the best hair on Kickstarter. Gorgeous!" - Scott Forbes - Kickstarter Backer of The RooSport 2.0

"This would be a good product to use while traveling to carry/conceal your valuables and passport. It would also be good for those days where you only need to carry a few items around instead of carrying your whole purse or wallet.I am excited to see the new/upgraded version being offered on Kickstarter."Half-Trying

The RooSport magnetic running pouch has two strong magnets that will hold your smartphone, keys, credit cards, cash, and more... It was the first magnetic running pouch to hit the running market. There are knock off's that have tried to get around its patent pending design but the cannot match the comfort of The RooSport! They are big, bulky and uncomfortable to run with. For distance runners the RooSport's slogan of GO BELTLESS! rings true. Unlike a belt with a pouch the RooSport does not bounce on your waistband. This magnetic pouch is a runners dream. You can stand up Energy Gels and grab them without having to unzip a pouch while running. You can load the pouch with sports beans or gummies and reach in and pull them out while running. When you wear running shorts, compression shorts, and yoga pants for exercising you have no pockets. The RooSport magnetic pouch will snap over your waistband and with a shirt over the top conceal itself. This magnetic pouch holds all you need when working out. It is easy to see why The RooSport is growing in popularity by looking at their Facebook page. (Facebook link) when you read the comments you see why this magnetic pouch is a winner.

THE MAKING OF THE ROOSPORT 2.0
With the huge success of the original design, we knew we had a winning product, but in an effort to always improve, we've listened to the feedback of our customers and designed our newest version...
The feedback and suggestions went straight to our lead product developer and designer, Brenda herself!
Brenda designed and created the original and she is designing and prototyping the newest version!
Here are some of the early designs

Risks and challenges
The RooSport 1.0 has been a massive success. We know what we're doing when it comes to manufacturing RooSports and you'll be pleasantly surprised at both the quality and how fast we deliver! With our Patent Pending design we've taken all of the feedback from our past customers to make the NEW RooSport 2.0. It truly is the greatest evolution of the pocket since the kangaroo.
This new RooSport 2.0 design eliminates the minor manufacturing issues we had with RooSport 1.0. We are also introducing the new bright colors that so many of our customers have asked for! Our manufacturing is set and ready to go. We plan on getting you your rewards as fast as possible.
We know that timely delivery is important. That's why we've kept our funding relatively small. We plan on making our order as soon as our goal is met (Even though we know, with your help, we can raise more and we have some pretty awesome "stretch" goals should you help push us over the top).
We, The RooSport Team, are organized and are committed to rewarding your pledges as fast as possible.
All we need now is your support. Together, let's make Kickstarter history and become the most successful project in the Apparel and Fashion categories ever! And, in so doing, let us reward your backing and give you The RooSport 2.0!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I will send you a survey at the end of the project time period (Towards the end of July) requesting your color(s) of choice.
You'll be able to choose from orange, hot pink, blue, green, black, and camo!
The best way to describe the colors is for you to scroll up and watch the video (The last few seconds) and look at the pictures of the new RooSport 2.0's.
Will The RooSport 2.0's magnets damage my iPhone, Android, Smart Phone, iPod Touch, credit cards, hotel rooms keys, or other electronic devices?
No, smart phones do not have a hard drive, and, did you know, your smart phone actually contains magnets in its own speakers! Pretty interesting, right? ;) Anyway, your smart phones are completely safe inside the RooSport.
Additionally, most iPods are safe inside the RooSport. The very first iPod made (The iPod Classic)... and not many people use this one anymore anyway) has a hard drive and is NOT safe to carry inside the RooSport. Besides the one though, all other models are safe.
The RooSport 2.0 WILL demagnetize a hotel room key as they are very sensitive. I have traveled for three (3) years building The RooSport brand and I always carry my RooSport 1.0. I still carry my hotel room key and credit card in my RooSport and I just stop by the front desk on my way back to my room should my key be demagnetized. I have carried credit cards in my RooSport for the past three (3) years and they are fine as long as you do not touch the magnet when you put it in your RooSport or put it next to your cell phone (Phones can actually demagnetize things, as they have magnets in their speakers, as I mentioned above). Credit cards have a thicker strip. To be overcautious, you can simply turn your credit cards and hotel room keys the opposite direction of the magnets and place them in between your cash or other items you choose to carry. This works excellent as well!
The new version is about 1/2 inch longer and does accommodate the HTC one. The only phone it has a problem fitting is the Note.
Also I have removed the Velcro to allow easier access to the main pocket while you are running. It is designed to wear inside your shorts so the waistband compresses it closed and holds it there.
Finally, the magnets for The RooSport 2.0 are a bit stronger to accommodate for the thicker waistbands on some shorts and sweat pants.
The RooSport 2.0 is 6 inches by 4 inches.
The RooSport 2.0 will use lightweight ripstop nylon (waterproof) fabric throughout to line the pocket. This version will be our most water resistant ever. It is NOT completely waterproof but it will be very water resistant. You will love it.
Great question! Here's a quick video showing you how to back The RooSport 2.0 at multiple levels so you can get a RooSport 2.0 in every new color I am making!

What is the difference between Joeys and Wallabees? In fact, what's the difference between all of your different reward levels/tiers?
In an effort to be creative and fun, I named my different "Backer/Reward" Tiers/Levels after different types and life-stages of kangaroos!
So, for example, if you back at $14, you're a "baby kangarooo" or "JOEY" and you get 1 RooSport 2.0 (Should we meet our funding goal). If you back at $57, you are in the "RooSport Joey Pack" and you get THREE (3) RooSport 2.0s, and so on, for whatever level you choose to back.
The RooSport 2.0's are ALL the same (You'll just get to choose your color(s) that you want once the project successfully funds).
The RooSport bags are also ALL the same.
Hopefully, that makes sense! If you're still confused though, no worries, just comment or ask a question and I'll quickly respond. :)
If this answers your question though, and you're ready to back The RooSport 2.0, scroll back up and make a pledge! Or, better yet, here's the direct link:
