Default Re: Wader Skins vs. Waders

I don't want to belabour this, but video marketing is my business.

When you market your product by pointing out what you feel are the downsides to the traditional product you immediately make people defend their choice. That's not a great strategy. And your negative points about conventional waders are a stretch at best.

It does not take more than 10 secs to put on waders. Less if they have a zipper.

Waders are not the death trap some people believe them to be.

Water to skin contact for hours isn't comfortable.

And while falling into the water is a pain in the ass, the same situation that would allow water to get into waders would soak whatever shirt you are wearing with your wader skins necessitating a clothing change.

Let me see if I can put this another way.

Steve Jobs didn't introduce the iPod by pointing out how much better it was than the Walkman or Discman. He held it up and said, "it's a thousand songs in your pocket."

You don't have a better wader or a new take on a wetsuit. You have a product that allows outdoor sportsmen/women to be warm and comfortable for longer in the water. That's intriguing.

When Under Armour started they went to the parking lots of NFL teams and handed out product to a few players as they went to their cars. The other players saw the gear in the locker room and wanted it. This was early influencer marketing.

Find six young adventurers from a variety of water sports (including fly fishing) and send them full suits. Their ability to influence will get you on the map.

Good luck.

Appreciate the feedback. Good points brought up. Wader Skins™ are designed to enable outdoors people to enjoy themselves comfortably in a wide variety of aquatic sports. We do have Wader Skins™ out in the hands of various outdoorsmen, from fishing guides to kayak and paddle board instructors and will be putting out their feedback as we get it in. The message we are working to convey is more broad-based in various outreach programs to appeal across various outdoor/aquatic sports, focused on all the various positive attributes of Wader Skins™ (versatile for numerous applications, custom made in the USA, etc.)..

To all:
Thanks to all for the feedback on Wader Skins™ so far...mostly very helpful comments.

We now have just 47 hours left on the Kick Starter special introductory offer for Wader Skins™ (ends Friday, August 11th)…offering a special price of $350 ($25 savings), plus we pay the freight (another $15 savings). If you want to take advantage of this price, order now.

We did have an inquiry to purchase just the leggings portion of Wader Skins™, and I wanted to make a special offer to the Fly Fishing Forum of $110 for the Leggings only and I will pay the freight for orders through the end of August (contact me directly on this legging offer).

We are excited about Wader Skins™, and think it is a perfect match for Fly Fishers from Float Tubes, Pontoon Boats and Kayaks as well as wading. The key points are that each Wader Skin™ is custom made to fit (manufactured here in California) and they offer real comfort & safety used in a wide array of aquatic environments. Wader Skins™ are made of 3-millimeter neoprene…with torso and legging sections, attached by Velcro.

Wader Skins™ deliver a comfortable, warm and safe way to be in the water doing what you love. Beyond fishing, Wader Skins™ are perfect for water sports like paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, water skiing, wake boarding or jet skiing. If you were going to buy one product to support a wide array of aquatic activities, Wader Skins™ is the obvious choice.
