Summer comes with lots of water-related activities like swimming, boating and surfing. Sometimes we end up walking all day in our swimsuits, but towels are difficult to keep on our bodies. Towel’On is a towel with sleeves making it super easy to enjoy wet activities while keeping warm. This fuzzy product comes in many different colors, patterns and sizes. While it is essentially a mini-bathrobe, the product uses less material so it’s easier to carry around all day. One big and tall version costs backers $27 with estimated delivery in November 2014. Towel’On hopes to raise $20,000 on Kickstarter, with stretch goals of $75,000 and $100,000.
Umbrellas keep rain off of us, but that same repelled rain sticks to the umbrella and then ends up on the floor when we find shelter. Lolli-Simone eliminates dripping after a storm and comes in a variety of fun colors. The lightweight umbrella has a hard case that, when removed, attaches to the handle so that it doesn’t get lost. Once out of the wet and cold, the umbrella folds and rolls up back into the hard case which is contained so there’s no dripping. Cases get lost all the time and wet floors are a big problem during the rain, so Lolli-Simone fixes two common problems in a clever way for the rare group of umbrella early adopters. Lolli-Simone will cost backers $35 with a campaign goal of $10,000 on Kickstarter.
