Who's Talking About Wocket™

Inspired By The Reality Of Play.
Every sport has wearable gear that assists the player, except golf.
Quality golf and other shot making sports depend on good preparation of hands and equipment before every shot. Until now, golfers had to hassle with, reach for, carry, or go back for a towel. Or worse, use their clothes. These are time and focus killing distractions. Game killers that are continually repeated on every round, match or game.
It's time shot making sports had wearable gear, rather than simply fashionable apparel that neglects the moment-to-moment realities of the game.
We constantly contend with dirt, water, grass, sweat, even fertilizers, yet it never occurred to anyone to make gear for us. We've been overlooked and neglected, while the gear of other sports continue to advance and address the players needs.
With all the emphasis on technology and performance fabrics in athletic apparel, it amazes us that no one gets it right.
Wocket gets it right. We've designed a pant that looks, feels, and moves great, but addresses the realities of the game.
First, we've seamlessly incorporated a patented and discrete pocket with a built in microfiber towel. Always there, ready and powerful, this towel does so much more with so much less. Packed grooves are easily cleaned with the millions of microfibers that also pull moisture inward, so won't get your pants wet. And it dries quickly due to the extraordinary surface area created by millions of microfibers.
We've gone further. We use performance and technical fabrics and anti-microbial coatings, that keep our gear looking and feeling great despite the realities of a messy sport. And we've added features like a marker magnet and an ergonomic glove grip that helps you keep it together and moving along during play.
Wocket will liberate your play from distraction, improve pace and flow, and maintain hand and equipment integrity quickly and conveniently. They are a joy wear.
Golf is too slow. Wocket will make your game faster, better and more fun and truly respond to the real needs of your game.
It's Alway's There. Always Ready.
You can't feel it, or see it while it's in its pocket. When it's out, you'll first need to remind yourself it's there and to use it. Suddenly, it will become unconscious, because it's so easy to grab, dry, wipe, clean, even groove.
9 Benefits Of Wearing Wocket.
FABRIC | FIT | STYLE
Wocket bottoms come in two fabric options: Performance Tech, and Performance Cotton. Both will stretch, give in the right places, and move well into the night.
The performance tech option resists dirt and moisture and has great hand feel, wicks and is anti-microbial for multiple wears without washing.
The performance cotton has a smidge of spandex and moves instep with your march, soft classic classic cotton feel.
You can choose your fabric option, along with size and color at the end of the campaign, when we send out our order surveys.
The design of each bottom starts with the fit. And the fit is centered around marching 18 holes and more.
SIZES: 26 | 28 | 30 | 32 | 34 | 36 | 38 | 40 | 42
Wocket Classic No one would know you are wearing a performance pant. A classic cut with a with few modern refinements, the Wocket Classic is part country club, part barbecue, part whatever. With four way stretch, they will move to your groove all day.
Midnight Driver They look too good to toss on the floor, but go ahead, they are anti-microbial. An up to date cut for next summer and fall, the Midnight Driver has all you need in performance, with a soft comfy hand feel.
Clutch Cargo From course, to grocery store, to lawnmower, to couch, or trail, or transmission, we took the feedback from semi-golf enthusiasts and made a pant that will make most dudes young and still-young happy. The Clutch Cargo. Nostalgic, dependable, there in a clutch.
The Dudemus Look good (but not too good). Relaxed and roomy up top, and modestly tapered at the bottom, the Dudemus will wear and perform well on and off the course and give you days of wearability without washing.
The Emmy A simply cut Skort for the course, court, or wherever your day takes you. Available in performance stretch cotton and performance tech fabric. See fabric descriptions below.
Skort Sizes: 0 | 2 | 4 | 6 | 8 | 10 | 12 | 14
WASH & CARE The whole point of Wocket is to make life and play easy. Wocket Fabric and Towels will have the same wash and care instructions, so that you can throw it all in the wash and never have to think about your towel.
We have three manufacturing and textiles partners who are seasoned producers of performance golf and athletic apparel, as well as innovators in performance fabrics. Collectively, they help create some redundancy that bolsters our confidence in delivering a great product in a timely fashion.
Once funded, you will receive a survey requesting the style(s), size(s) and color(s) of the incentive that you requested. Once we have received all our surveys, we will immediately process the orders and begin manufacturing.
This manufacturing run is estimated to be completed by May 15, at which point items will be shipped to Amazon fulfillment, for packing and shipping. Amazon will also be handling customer service, as it relates to delivery.
All other customer service concerns will be handled directly by Wocket Apparel.

THE WOCKET STORY
We started from the dirt up. Literally. I found myself in the fairway with a dirt clod on my wedge. So, I wiped it off with my index finger. Now I have dirt on my index finger? Why didn't I use my shoe? Why don’t I ever have a towel? Where do I wipe my index finger? After sleepless nights, I came up with Wocket. I used the towel a few times on every shot. That's about 240 times in one round! And I played faster, with more focus and shot better. The first time I put them on I felt different. I immediately had a sense of intention, like I was gearing up for performance. Later, when I played without them, I missed them to the point of frustration. I don't do that anymore. Friends asked for them, and so on, and so on. Now, here we are. You will love playing in these pants.
Thats's the founder, and yes he has hairy arms.
