REVEL GEAR – The Future of Portable Power and Light

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2016-09-12

This solar power + battery + LED light combo might just be the future of portable light and power. Built by adventurers, for adventurers, the REVEL LIGHT and Night Owl Solar Pack are a modern camping essential. You can setup and teardown 30ft of lights in mere seconds, you can dim the lights to set up the perfect mood lighting, start a fire with the built in flint, and power your devices from the sun (even at night!). Plus, this product enables you to send renewable energy and light to a student in Africa. Take your camping, backpacking, and travels to the next level with REVEL GEAR’s newest product.

5 days ago. ... We will be posting an update in the next 48 hours with an update on the test...

Review from Kickstarter
Great update guys. Great to see things flowing along. Power pack looks great. Good looking prototype. I bet the final run item looks even better. Keep up the good work.

Review from Kickstarter
I don't have any of my products....i'll spend 159usd..... Two years ago is enough time to make anything...... And Last update said:"not manufactured yet"... Get back my monkey...... Kickstarter is a good paltform but this kind of products is really bad image

Personally I would rather get no reward at all than something crappy. I have enough disappointing Kickstarter rewards that didn't live up to their promises.

Review from Kickstarter
I still somehow believe that you are trying your best to make this product great but looking at the latest pictures this faith is going down and down. Without question you had a great idea and quite professional execution of the campaign which made me believe that you know stuff. After those years of waiting this kind of pictures of the product says only that I gonna receive just some poor/decent quality product and nothing above that. Sad story is that you as creator you took a lesson “how to run a business on bigger scale” for my money and the rest of people here. I wish that at least you will pass a finish line... somehow. And I will be able to use your thing at least one seaso.

Thanks for the update, it’s great to see we are nearly getting there!
Is there still going to be a hard shell snap on case for it?

Review from Kickstarter
Still willing to start bets for 2 years. Any takers?

It looks like a MacGyver homemade job.

Review from Kickstarter
"A new more rugged (and stylish) housing for the solar panels, additional hanging points, and a snap close case." For some silly reason I was expecting more ... I truly hope that is the poor mans version of the final product, it looks quite odd, cheap and nasty - much like a grade school science project. Where is the actual light strand and case??

Uh...what about the update on the lights?

Review from Kickstarter
Wow. An update. Underwhelmed by product. Hopefully if one ever arrived in my letterbox it looks more refined than that.

Review from Kickstarter
At the end of the day, 100k isn't that much money in manufacturing terms, so two years on I cannot see that any of it is still there. But hey, it seems they had a nice wedding, new offices and international trips. Yay for them....

Review from Kickstarter
this is not looking good... i would like to have a refund.. i would love to have the item with me,, i already have the the light you sent last year and they are great... but i think very sad you are not a very serious company,.

Review from Kickstarter
@unknownsoldier couldn't agree more. I noticed that they logged in for the 1st time in over a month after they had been reported to kickstarter, coincidence I wonder? What annoys me more is that I believed their BS and effectively doubled my pledge during the survey.

Review from Kickstarter
Well this is awkward. The Creators logged into Kickstarter 2 days ago yet no update on the China mission. My savings account was debited a substantial amount during funding in Oct 2016 and all I have to show in June 2018 .... is ZILCH! I have seen a wedding, heard plenty of excuses and witnessed lots of travel logs yet we have nothing of any real significance. In that time I was severely injured and medically retired from the Army, built a new house and started my own small business to support me and my family. We all have our burdens to bear but this campaign has produced nothing but white noise. The whole campaign was developed on a concept and a 3D render that gave your Revel Gear "Fam" the impression that the products were the real deal. Your brand (that we helped build) is now synonymous with delays, excuses and total indifference towards your backer "fam". We have been seeking some realistic time frames and honest transparency but that appears to be something you guys are are unwilling to provide. I don't know why this is the case .... you already have our money.

Review from Kickstarter
Hoodwinked, almost two years fellas and the rope light on a spool is nowhere near completion. We paid for a wedding. Fucking Kickstarter! Never again

Review from Kickstarter
Just reported this to Kickstarter. If my item isn't coming I would at least like my $170AUD back. Fourteen months past advertised timeline and the creator clearly lied in the Risks and Challenges section. We were all duped.

Review from Kickstarter
Revel Gear Team, When a company misses timelines, providing a consistent update (recommend monthly) is the professional action to take to inform customers. Your company needs to mature up and realize that being non communicative only hurts you reputation with current backers and future potential customers....

Hi Revelgear, what is up with the golden samples which should be available on 5/20. Nothing to share with us? Will the be light during my summer vacation 2018?

@Keegan thanks for the award but I don’t have a speech prepared so a simple thank you will have to do. But if you don’t have an issue with backing something and wanting to know what’s up with your investment I have a bridge for sale.

Review from Kickstarter
@Oskars good luck with that. At this point we need to realise our money potentially ended up in Vegas.

Review from Kickstarter
So, what is the plan for delivery in Europe? Should I consider refund option?

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for the update. It’s great to see things moving forward, and your still looking at making sure the best components possible go into the products.
I’m guessing we won’t be getting a new time frame update until the “Golden Samples” are in hand?

Review from Kickstarter
@Timothy McKenna I would also be interested in an idea of shipping timeframe, given things still seem a ways off after reading the latest update.

I would like a refund. Enough is enough. This was my first time to back something, and thanks to the way it has turned out the last.

Review from Kickstarter
When can I get this product? Before Xmas or Mothers Day?
Timothy McKenna
Review from Kickstarter
Assuming decisions can be made by 6/15 to start production....then another 15 days to start shipping...I feel that we should have units in our hands by the end of July. To Revel—- what is your realistic guesstimate to have units in backers hands ??????

Hey guys! I just moved. How do I update my address with you. I've waited this long for the product I would hate for it to go to the wrong place!

@Rob, thanks for the support and well wishes. We will definitely get some photos posted from the trip. (Less than 7 days until we depart!)
Rob Baker
Review from Kickstarter
Excellent update, but very sorry to hear about the bad news going on personally!
However great to see the photos and the effort being made to put out the best product possible. I’m still so excited to see this complete! Hope all goes well in China, would be great to see some photos from the trip.
If you need a beta tester in the UK I’m here ;) lol Good luck guys

@HowardKoHo, if you need to update your address, please send us a private message on Kickstarter with the new address and/or send us an email to info@revelgear.com and we will get it updated for you.

Review from Kickstarter
Great update guys. Congratulations on your successes and sorry to hear about the harder times you've been having. Excited to see things flowing towards a great product. People who never create anything are always quick to criticize those who do. Some people should stick to "shopping" and leave supporting new innovative projects to those who have patience, and to be honest, manners. Again, great update and good luck in China.
