If you’re heading into the woods with a long hike planned or you’re embarking on a weekend road trip, Clakit will be your catch-all for items you’d normally stuff into your pockets or backpack. Larry Schessel, Clakit founder, sent a sample to me last year and I have used the pouch on mostly every occasion where I’m required to carry essential items with me. It’s also ideal for dog walking, particularly because our German Shepherd/Alaskan Malamute “Bear” is one of the strongest dogs I’ve known and I need to keep both hands on his leash.
Clakit, Inc. pouches
The possibilities are endless
Are you tired of rummaging through your backpack in search of that one item you need?
Larry Schessel, Clakit founder, isn’t downplaying the importance of backpacks. He’s an avid hiker and traveler and while knapsacks serve a purpose, Schessel says,
“They (backpacks) are great for carrying things on your back. But they are inconvenient for accessing gear you often need, like your smartphone for pictures, water and snacks.”
The idea for Clakit was born while Schessel was hiking in the California mountains. Getting his hands on items he needed from his backpack was a laborious task.
“Every time we needed something we had to stop, take off our backpacks, search for the item and repack – whether water, smartphone, map, wallet, snack or permits,” Schessel noted.
Backpack storage problems Solved
Schessel designed The StrapPackTM by Clakit to solve his backpack storage problems by allowing easy access to valuables. Secure yet accessible pouches easily clip to your backpack’s front shoulder straps, so you can safely stash your belongings within sight and reduce the risk of theft. For folks who don’t want to wear a backpack, Schessel offers the Clakit Strap System ($14.95). Patented nylon clips secure the pouches to the strap system for a lightweight alternative to a pack.
Accessories available are the Smartphone Pouch Bundle ($19.95), Pocket Pouch Bundle ($14.95), Water Bottle Pouch Bundle ($14.95), Adjustable Utility Pouch Bundle ($19.95) and Two-Zipper Pouch and Clip Bundle ($19.95) and the Water Bottle Pouch Bundle ($19.95). The options are endless and the price is very reasonable and affordable.
I’ve sampled the Clakit strap system, clip and the Smartphone Pouch Bundle while walking our recently rescued Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd pup. We take one to two-mile walks almost every day and as you can well imagine, he’s very energetic and strong. I was at a loss for a safe, convenient pouch or fanny pack to carry my cell phone and keys. The Smartphone Pouch saved the day.
Ideal for your commute and travel adventures
Keep your valuables “under your nose” while commuting or traveling. StrapPackTM pouches allow you to have eyes on your belongings and help to prevent theft.
Schessel says, “Storing gear on the front pack straps just makes more sense.”
