About

INSPIRATION -

Years ago, as we were wrapping up a surf sesh in central Malibu, we reconciled that using a makeshift towel curtain to change out of a wetsuit proved to be pretty embarrassing for those of us who accidentally dropped it.

Thus, the idea for Vibey was hatched - a US company dedicated to literally covering your butt! We make rad products for the ocean sliders, the slope slayers, the park rats, the wanderlusts, and all those who live for the JOY of adventure and the LOVE of humankind.

BACKGROUND - 

Having originally conceptualized Vibey on the Malibu shores in 2012, Wojtek Peliks most recently joined Procore Technologies as a UX Designer. New as of 2019, Brent Ludlow joined team Vibey, having made his way from co-founding the eco-friendly drinking straw company, PastaStraws, in Malibu just last year.

Team vibey has always been charitable. This year we made it a bit more official by partnering with The Human Trafficking Institute in Washington DC. With their help, we're tackling modern slavery by donating 5% of all our profits to their initiatives.

NEXT CHAPTER - 

Small batch Vibeys were just the beginning. Combining years of feedback and development, we're stoked to announce the new Vibey long hoodie - made in the USA!

So what's different? For starters, the BIG branding! We favor a more minimalist approach nowadays. ;)

Next, our "Classic" Vibey was made from 100% cotton. With the new "Adventure" Vibey, now available through this Kickstarter, we've upgraded to a fleece-lined and water-resistant polyester so you can conquer the slopes and sloshy weather in style! 

We then took another step to include a new tailored hood and a heavy-duty front zipper to manage your core temperature. 

But it didn't stop there. We continued to push development further by including an easily accessible chest pocket that's specially compartmentalized for your phone, keys, and wallet.

Last on our list, we custom designed exchangeable rubber lifestyle patches to capture your favorite adventures and hobbies!

TIMELINE - 

Here's our timeline to bring you the latest Vibey:

  • March 1st - USA manufacture selected
  • March 15th - Pattern designed
  • March 22nd - Weather-resistant materials selected
  • March 29th - Most Vibey Patches fully developed and pending purchase orders
  • April 8th - Vibey fully developed and pending purchase orders
  • April 11th - Kickstarter launch
  • May 9th - Kickstarter ends and survey goes out
  • July 1st - Expected ship date!!

If all goes well, you should be rocking your new Vibey for the 4th of July!

FUNDING - 

After calculating our donation to The Human Trafficking Institute, almost all of our funding will go towards materials and manufacturing. If there is anything left over, we will reinvest those funds into targeting new markets and creating new gear!

CONCLUSION - 

Vibey has already been around for SEVEN YEARS! We're stoked that good people like you believe in our mission and allow us to spread positive vibes through our company.

Your contribution today not only allows us to conquer the next phase, it also helps end modern slavery. PLUS you get a pretty rad Vibey. It's a win-win-win for all!

Risks and challenges

We're really hands on with the development process and have carefully selected US-based vendors that deliver quality work on time. That said, the toughest part about this Kickstarter is honestly not knowing if we'll reach our goal.

Even if we don't; no harm no foul! We're pretty resourceful and will figure out another way to bring the all-new Vibey Adventure Hoodie to market. :)
