Tunbridge Wells, UK – Kristina Oliver and Emily Gayton have launched a Kickstarter campaign for SWYMBAGs, a range of 100% waterproof bags designed to keep valuables safe when at the beach and enjoying the water.
“We came up with the idea after having our bag stolen whilst we were swimming on holiday last year and wanted to find a way this wouldn’t happen to us or anyone else in the future,” the creators explain, “there are many options to keep your phones dry on the market but nothing which would allow you to keep passports, keys, cameras and other items dry and still be able to enjoy the water easily. The swymbags have been created so that they are as versatile on land as they are in water and with the fabric outer layers no one can see what it is you are carrying which is an additional safety feature.”
All SWYMBAGs have a waterproof compartment which features a unique locking mechanism sealing the contents into the bag keeping them safe and dry. This also acts as handy theft deterrent to pickpockets as you are required to open the mechanism in order to get the contents out. Constructed from high quality plastics and 316 stainless steel components, it has been designed to endure repeated exposure to water without any deterioration.
The outer coverings are made from high quality CORDURA® — A fabric which many of the most respected brands, retailers and militaries around the world use when they need to make a product that’s durable, versatile and reliable. Constructed using high tenacity fiber technologies, CORDURA® fabrics are exceptionally durable and are considered the “best-in-class.” An antibacterial coating will also be applied to further protect the bags.
“It has taken several months and tens of thousands of pounds to develop the products, register the designs and patent the technology, with manufacturing requiring further funds we needed to find a way to raise these having exhausted our own,” says the team, “Kickstarter offers a fantastic platform to launch new products and raise money at the same time, by pre-ordering now people are able to save up to 30% off the RRP and help launch the business.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a shoulder bag for £45, a bumbag for £50, a backpack for £75. Three lucky backers who pledge £5,000 will get a full set of SWYMBAGs plus a five day trip to Ibiza including accommodation, a private luxury speed boat charter with Ibiza speedboats and a sunset dinner with the SWYMBAG founders!
