KUWOW backpack, Pitaka MagDock, Camper Hooded Jacket, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

NEWS – This week we are bringing you info about six different crowdfunding campaigns that are currently running on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. This week’s campaigns are for people who like to want a good night’s sleep, gear bags, travel gear, and more.

KUWOW 2.0 – The Versatile Anti-theft Backpack

What is it?

The KUWOW is a backpack that is made of Kevlar and has been designed to be theft and cut proof.

Why is it cool?

I like the KUWOW backpack because it’s a well thought out travel bag that has a ton of features. It’s constructed of waterproof and cutproof material and offers pockets and attachment points for all of your gear, from laptops and tablets, to even your clothes and toiletries. It also has built-in reflectors, a password lock, Bluetooth tracker, and even a USB port.

They sent me a pre-production sample of this backpack and I was very impressed with the construction and all the built-in features. This bag isn’t huge but it can hold a lot of gear and the small touches like a metal grab handle and a pass-through for rolling luggage are great.

Where can I find more info?

The KUWOW campaign ends on 10/21/18 and they have already reached their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a KUWOW starting at $99. After the KUWOW campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2018. Visit their Indiegogo page for all the details.

Pitaka MagDock

What is it?

The Pitaka MagDock is a multi-device wireless charging station with an onboard battery for on-the-go wired charging. When used with a magnetic mount case, the MagDock can position your phone at a 45-degree angle so it can be used for FaceTime, watching movies or web surfing.

Why is it cool?

Generally speaking, you can find wireless chargers that can handle 2 devices. Finding one that can handle 3 devices simultaneously is something of a unicorn. This could come in very handy for couples and families traveling together.

Where can I find more info?

The Pitaka MagDock Kickstarter campaign ends on October 16. Within 24 hours of launch, they had already hit their all or nothing goal of $15,476. The campaign states that the MagDock will ship in November and will be in your hands for Christmas. You can get the base version of the MagDock on an early bird perk for $49 or the Pro version for $64. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Camper Hooded Jacket 2.0 | Packable, Lightweight, & Eco

What is it?

The Camper Hooded Jacket available in men and women’s sizes that is a lightweight and packable puffy jacket for the city or the woods.

Why is it cool?

I like the Camper Hooded Jacket because it’s it stuffs into its own bag for great portability. You can put it in your travel bag and forget about it until you need it. It features a synthetic multi-layer insulation that has expanded cells for increased warmth in a jacket that doesn’t weigh much at all. It also has a lot of little extras like a headphone port, cinch waist and cuffs, and 6 pockets for your phone or other items.

They sent me a pre-production sample of the jacket and it’s going to be my new go-to travel jacket to pack when I travel from a warm spot to a cold spot and don’t want to actually wear a jacket until I get there. I can just put the jacket pouch in another bag and break it out when I need the extra warmth.

Where can I find more info?

The Camper Hooded Jacket campaign ends on 11/6/18 and they have already passed their funding goal of $50,000. You can pre-order a DreamOn starting at $95. After the Camper Hooded Jacket campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in February 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

EVERMORE Origin // a functional rugged EDC Sling/Beltbag

What is it?

The EVERMORE is a small travel pack that you can wear around your waist or across your back like a sling bag.

Why is it cool?

I like the EVERMORE because it’s small but has the ability to carry almost everything you need (except a laptop or tablet) when you’re on the go. It also has attachment points all over the pack so that you can clip things to it like your keys, a water bottle, etc.

Where can I find more info?

The EVERMORE campaign ends on 10/7/18 and they have already reached their funding goal of $8,000. You can pre-order an EVERMORE starting at $60. After the EVERMORE campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in October 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

DreamOn: Your 1-Step Solution For Better Sleep

What is it?

The DreamOn is a wrist wearable sleep aid and sleep tracker.

Why is it cool?

I like the DreamOn because it’s a drug-free way to fall asleep faster by providing a low-frequency pulse that gives your brain something to focus on so that you can relax and drift off to sleep quickly.

Where can I find more info?

The DreamOn campaign ends on 10/20/18 and they are still working towards their funding goal of $40,000. You can pre-order a DreamOn starting at $109. After the DreamOn campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in January 2019. Visit their Indiegogo page for all the details.

  2. Agreed on the KUWOW; too small for my daily needs. The features are on target but I need the space of my Wenger Swiss Army backpack in order to make a change.

  3. Too bad the jacket isn’t coming until February – I’m going to Iceland (it’s on my partner’s bucket list, and we’ll go to the music festival) the first week of November. I’m hoping, but not counting on, that my Baubax 2.0 Kickstarter reward will arrive before then.
