Introducing The Cache Belt by Wazoo
The Cache Belt is the world's most functional travel and adventure belt. It's versatile enough to take you from the boardroom to the backwoods of Borneo and combines the highest grade components with a sleek, goes-with-anything look. Best of all, it features a velcro enclosure over two feet long that's fully customizable. From carrying some extra Euros on the streets of Amsterdam, to packing a compass and signaling mirror up a volcano in Nicaragua, we've tested this belt all around the world and we're confident you'll agree: this is the ultimate everyday and travel accessory.
**NOTE** Please check your local laws and regulations to ensure that none of the items included are prohibited in your location. It was brought to our attention that some countries may have regulations against hidden or ceramic blades.
Gear loops can anchor large items outside the belt (like keys), or act as a dummy cord for small items inside the belt you don't want to drop or lose.
CACHE CAP - You didn’t think we were just going to make a hat and put our name on the outside, did you? This cap has 6, count 'em, SIX hidden pockets. This allows you to store items in your hat. Of course, we suggest emergency items but it fits keys, cards, seasoning packets, instant coffee, and anything else you might consider a necessity.
NOTE: This is an example of our Burnable Business Cards but this is not currently included in the Kickstarter Pledges. It's a reference to further explain the card we mention for the GIFT ON THE WAY Add-On.
COBRA BUCKLE (+$45) - Upgrade your standard cam-style buckle to an extremely heavy-duty, load-rated buckle with built-in D-Ring (yeah, that's a lot of hyphens). This is likely going to require a custom run with the slide end sized to accommodate our specific webbing. This custom run will require us to extend the delivery dates into March to allow for production time.
These buckles will not be interchangeable since they are sewn directly onto the belt. This reinforced stitching also requires extra time on the machine and a skilled hand to ensure it's done properly. The price may seem significant for an upgrade, but the people that get it understand. Keep in mind this buckle has no location to store the signal mirror for the Adventure level backers.
Our goal is to save lives. We strive to offer the highest quality, most practical survival kits on the market. We hide survival kits inside everyday items so you have them with you at all times. After all, a survival kit doesn't do you any good if you don't have it with you!
Please note that according to Kickstarter guidelines, we cannot use this crowdfunding project to raise funds for charity but we will continue to support these organizations outside of Kickstarter. To learn more about some of these great organizations, check out National Association for Search And Rescue (NASAR). They provide training, certifications, scholarships, and standards for SAR groups across the country.
This is our first ever Kickstarter project and this belt has been years in the making. It means a lot to us that you came to check out our project and made it this far down the list. Thank you so much for supporting the project to bring the Cache Belt to life. We're excited to get these shipped out as soon as we can and we look forward to seeing where you adventure with yours!

Risks and challenges
Unexpected obstacles arise. It is the rule, not the exception. We have found that applying a positive mental attitude and a survivor's mindset, we have been able to adapt and overcome every obstacle. In 2014 we had an electrical fire that nearly burned our business to the ground. We calmly picked up the pieces, rebuilt, and came out stronger and better than before. Should any major issues arise, we will be completely transparent about them and how they will affect your reward.
In past years, we've shipped product to 90+ countries around the world and probably have our products adventuring in even more. For this project, we've partnered with some incredible US companies with excellent track records of delivering. We can't wait to get the Cache Belt in your hands!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
