Spring Has Sprung!

We are in full swing this Spring - traveling throughout the US, Hong Kong and China - all in the pursuit of the perfect partners.

We spent a week in March meeting with our manufacturing consultants in Hong Kong.  From design reviews to production optimization, we covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time.  And now more than ever, we truly appreciate having a solid team helping to bring our products to market.

We also had the opportunity to meet with several contract manufacturers in China - one of which will be selected to manufacture our products.  It was an eye-opening experience - filled with factory tours and production line reviews - and was all-in-all, very educational!  From small, nimble factories, to enormous campuses dedicated to premium consumer product manufacturing, we visited a wide range of contract manufacturers to find the perfect fit for our company.

It is an exciting time in our company's short history - we are making big strides and getting closer to making our dreams a reality everyday!  Stay tuned for more exciting announcements being announced soon!

2018 is Off to a Great Start!

We hit the ground running in 2018!  From endless meetings and conference calls to trade shows and travel, we have been driving forward quickly!

For the first time in our company's short history, we attended the largest outdoor industry trade show, Outdoor Retailer.  After years of being held in Salt Lake City, UT, the OR show was held in Denver for the first time in 2018 - we love Colorado, so we were thrilled to go.  While we didn't exhibit, we did get a good lay-of-the-land - and stayed busy meeting various strategic partners. 

Keep following along to stay informed on everything Thirty Third Parallel!  We're doing some really cool things and a lot of exciting news will be coming down the line soon!




Thanks to our amazing group of supporters, we have been able to exceed our $50,000 goal on Kickstarter!

We still have 12hrs left in our campaign, so if you were on the fence about contributing to our campaign, now is the time to jump on board!  

We still have a few of our most popular packages available, so get one before they're gone!



Thanks again for all of the support - we absolutely could not do this without you.
