I designed the first Walkapocket in 2012 and spent 2 years perfecting and wear testing.
On my daily walks with my dog I was always thinking about new ways to carry my things more easily while keeping my hands free to hold the leash.
My work has been in outdoor apparel design so it was exciting to start working on new projects.
I had the fabric, Dri-Lex Aero-Spacer: a light weight, durable, abrasion resistant, wicking, quick dry mesh texture from Faytex Corp. in Weymouth, MA- www.faytex.com
It would have to be low profile, worn below my waist, be comfortable and secure with sleek modern lines and manufactured in the USA.
I landed on the “perfect pocket solution” in July of 2014 and call it Walkapocket. I immediately placed my first order from a factory in San Diego, CA and the fun continues.
I want Walkapocket to inspire people to get out walking.
