Kickstarter: March 2017 Edition
Bit Bar: The Pocket Friendly EDC Screwdriver
Ends: Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Featuring a full-size handle and the ability to store it anywhere, the Bit Bar™ was made to be passed down through the generations. Including a magnet push bar that stores 8 standard size hex bits (yes, full size bits!) inside for any situation. Matching that of a EDC pocket knife, it’s both comfortable to carry and easy to access at any time. Definitely worth checking out if you travel a lot and has already been TSA approved for flights.

Coast: Cricket Protein Powder Bars
Ends: Saturday, April 1, 2017
We are all searching for good things for not only ourselves, but the environment as well right? Well here it is…
Coast protein bars are made with cricket protein powder which contain tons of protein as well as a bunch of other vitamins and minerals. Crickets are so good for you guys! Crickets are actually a complete protein. They have all 9 essential amino acids needed for your body to grow and repair itself.
Coast prides itself on being dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO all while still tasting great. “Each bar is made with crickets in powdered form and naturally sweetened with honey and dried fruits.” With flavors like peanut butter and dark chocolate, we are definitely going to be trying to get our hands on some of these bars!
RADD: The Grom Hammock (Relax and Do Designs)
Ends: Saturday, April 1, 2017
These simple, durable, go-anywhere hammocks are the creation of two college student’s dream to build recreational gear. Starting from scratch and teaching themselves to sew in their dorm room, the dream of RADD was born. With the idea that gear should not only be versatile, but made from quality material, they sought to source high-grade materials from the United States to produce these hammocks.
“Our hammock is made with strong, triple-stitched, 70D ripstop nylon, with a weight capacity of 450lbs, 12Kn wire-gated carabiners, and strong polypropylene rope to ensure a quality hanging experience regardless of what adventure you are on.”
We love this Kickstarter because heart and soul seems to have gone into it. We all know there are several hundreds of hammocks out there, but we question if just as much thought has gone into the build and make of those hammocks as these guys have put into the RADD hammock. Guess you will just have to find out for yourself!

They could be the next revolutionary thing!
BULLET 02: World’s Smallest Flashlight
Ends: Saturday, April 22, 2017
Slughaus is at it again. Last year, they introduced us to the BULLET: World’s Smallest LED Flashlight. Here they are in 2017, bringing a more minimal design that is even smaller. After the release of the BULLET, Slughaus went back to the drawing board with problems and concerns of the original, reinventing an even smaller flashlight for the world to grasp.
The BULLET 02 can be attached to pretty much anything. Bags, jackets, keys, backpacks, etc. How else could they make the BULLET better? Waterproof. More secure. Brighter. Indestructible. They even ran it over with a SUV guys! Designed with aerospace-grade aluminum and a sleek anodized treatment, this little guy is built for anything you throw it’s way.

With over 20 features including a removable snow skirt, a RECCO rescue system, and sleek shoulder designs, this jacket is definitely something that you should be checking out.
Troika Outdoors™ Hammock
Ends Saturday, April 1, 2017
Troika Outdoors™ is bringing a three-point hammock to life this year. Claiming to only weigh an astounding 15ounces, these triangle shaped hammocks are perfect for anyone that doesn’t like the feel of a traditional hammock, adding more comfort to your back and hips.
