Outdoor adventure brand Kammok is launching a new Kickstarter campaign to introduce the Glider, a portable weather shelter and rain tarp system with integrated rainwater retention and heat reflective technology. After entering the market in 2011 with the 10th largest Kickstarter project in history at the time, Kammok hopes to introduce their second breakthrough product with an even bigger crowdfunding campaign.
“I am super excited to literally see this new Kammok project get off the ground!” said survival and outdoor adventure star Bear Grylls. “The Kammok Roo camping hammocks have become one of my family’s favorites and has become a firm staple on my own adventures. Kammok is dedicated to innovative design and robustengineered materials - and products such as an outdoor shelter with a water retention system is typical of their vision! We are all about taking adventure to the next level."
The Glider is the first ever consumer camping or relief shelter to include built-in rain retention technology. The
patent-pending design includes catenary curves, inspired by the shape of the Sugar Glider flying squirrel.
Adjustable suspension creates natural “rain gutters” where water is channeled along these curves to the four feet
of the Glider. Flexible water bottles at the base of the feet collect the rainwater using patent-pending BPA-free
plastic connectors for immediate drinking or storage.
The Glider is made using Kammok’s revolutionary Amphibiskin (link) material, which seamlessly integrates amazing waterproofness with heat reflective technology. Amphibiskin is constructed using high tenacity fiber technologies, starting with a CORDURA brand base fiber that makes the finished fabric exceptionally durable. The fabric is then siliconized for added strength, and treated with proprietary waterproof and heat reflective finishes. The result is an ultralight fabric, that can protect against downpours, snowstorms, and against the blistering heat.
