Wish-Lust: Kickstarter - PACE lid
This Kickstarter project, from GoRuck badass, and innovating outdoorsman, Chris Way.
This is the PACE lid, and it's Kickstarter is underway.
PACE stands for Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency. When planning for events in life you have to expect that unforeseen things may happen and knowing this is empowering.
The container in the PACE lid is 300mL (10oz), it's deep enough for an ID or credit card as well as a variety of other gear.
The container is 7.6cm (3") in diameter and 5.7cm (2.25") inches deep. There's a small well around the perimeter that can secure items vertically and in place if they are bent, like cards, matches, other gear items. It's a feature Chris designed in and finds very useful in certain loading particular items in.
wide mouth Nalgene, Klean Kanteen, Hydroflask, and MSR bottles. I have a couple of Nalgene's so their perfect for me.
The prototypes seen here are apparently 3D printed, but the production models will be tooled plastics.
As well as the lids themselves, Chris is offering a pre-filled First Aid PACE, stocked with products from MedTraining Group, who specialize in non-permissive First Response fitting and training.
If you're super keen, high-end backers can also get training and adventure time with the PACE team, so there are all kinds of benefits to backing this project, big or small.
For me though, it's all about the lids, and stowing my gear, wherever I go.
Be sure to check it out and hopefully, we can get it over the line.
