Titanium bottle, a reverse umbrella, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

CROWDFUNDING NEWS – This week I’m bringing you three Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns. Let’s check them out.

Titaner Life Bottle V2.0

What is it?

The Titaner Life Bottle V2.0 is a vacuum bottle made of Titanium.

Why do I like it?

I like the Titaner Life Bottle V2.0 because it’s small enough to fit in my MINI Cooper’s cup holders! I also like that it’s a vacuum bottle which means that very hot liquids stay hot without burning your hand when you hold the bottle, and cold liquids stay cold without causing condensation on the outside of the bottle.

They sent me an early production sample and it’s a very nice bottle. The capacity is 380ml (12.8 oz) which might not be enough for a really long morning commute, but I do like the easy one-handed pop top cap and that you can take the bottle apart for easy cleaning.

Where can I find more info?

The Titaner campaign ends on 11/16/19 they are very close to reaching their funding goal of $3,859. You can pre-order a Titaner bottle starting at $78. After the Titaner campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

YESbrella – The Mini Reverse Umbrella Like No Other

What is it?

YESbrella is an umbrella that has a unique reverse mechanism that folds the umbrella in the opposite way of traditional umbrellas.

Why do I like it?

I like the YESbrella because it’s smaller than other reverse umbrellas but it still has a large canopy. It’s also quicker to close and it’s lightweight. You can balance it on its “head” with it closed so that it can dry without leaving it open and taking up floor space.

They sent me an early production sample and it’s a well-made umbrella. However, I did have a couple of instances of it pinching my fingers when I was trying to open it. I also think that they should put the carrying loop on the opposite end.

Where can I find more info?

The YESbrella campaign ends on 12/06/19 they have already met their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order a YESbrella starting at $45. After the YESbrella campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in May 2020. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Fire Escape – prepared for everything, escape when necessary

What is it?

Fire Escape is a carabiner with built-in survival tools.

Why do I like it?

I like the Fire Escape because it’s a multi-purpose tool. First, it’s a carabiner, so that makes it easy to clip to your backpack. Secondly, it has a built-in fire starter, window breaker, belt cutter, bottle opener, and hex wrench.

Where can I find more info?

The Fire Escape campaign ends on 11/15/19 they have already met their funding goal of $7,350. You can pre-order a Fire Escape starting at $19. After the Fire Escape campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
