Sitpack is lighting crowdfunding on hearth as soon as once more. A couple of 12 months after rolling to victory with a $336,000 marketing campaign for its Octo titanium carabiner multitool, the Danish firm finds itself within the midst of an much more profitable six-figure marketing campaign. This one’s for the Campster 2, a quicker, decrease model of the unique ultra-portable Campster. The brand new iteration packs right down to the scale of a water bottle, all however units itself up in 5 seconds flat, and offers a snug place to plop as much as 300 kilos (136 kg) of man (or gal) flesh and bones, anyplace on or off the map.
The Octo device appeared like a little bit of an anomaly for Sitpack, as the corporate has all the time been hyper-focused on making the act of sitting as moveable and common as attainable. It began off with a super-compact deployable stool earlier than going full legs up, bottom down with the unique Campster.
An ultralight chair constructed to hold into the center of nowhere for an extended, remoted sit, the unique Campster was a mid-pandemic product if ever we have seen one. Now that the pandemic is over, campers and adventurers do not need to stray so removed from the automobile or cabin and might perhaps afford a bit of further weight.
The brand new Campster 2 provides about 1.2 lb (544 g) of weight over the Campster with a four-legged aluminum body that appears stabler than the unique tripod base. It additionally sits decrease to the bottom with a 12-in (30.5-cm) seat peak and has a squarer, bucket-style seat harking back to different low, foldable chairs, akin to these from CLIQ. That decrease peak could or could not show a bonus relying upon choice – we like a decrease chair when utilizing a dug-in hearth pit however a better chair with an above-ground hearth pit or ring.
The Campster 2’s decrease body additionally makes for quicker set-up. The body shortly unfolds and deploys into form, bringing the chair material with it. It goes from journey pack to chair in a mere 5 seconds, twice as shortly as the unique Campster. When it is time to transfer, the three.2-lb (1.5-kg) Campster 2 packs down right into a 13.7-in-long (35-cm) journey type that Sitpack compares to the scale of a 1.5-L water bottle.
Sitpack is working a Campster 2 Kickstarter marketing campaign, providing the chair at pledge ranges as little as US$59. It is also providing $129 bundles that embrace equipment like an insulated seat cowl for cold-weather heat and a floor sheet that attaches to all 4 toes to stop them from sinking into sand or different smooth floor. Up to now, the marketing campaign has raised greater than 20 occasions its aim and is nearing $500,000. If every little thing continues shifting alongside efficiently, the corporate will start delivery within the coronary heart of the Northern Hemisphere summer time season in July.
