The-X-Pen

At this point, it’s safe to say if we had a single ounce of CAD in our design wheelhouse we would dedicate ourselves to creating pens solely for Kickstarter campaigns. Unfortunately, we don’t (yet), so we’re going to stick to all of the other Kickstarter pen campaigns out there in the meantime. Like, for instance, The X-Pen. Machined locally in the US out of 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, and designed by two UC Berkeley alums, The X-Pen isn’t your average Kickstarter pen. It’s not rollerball, it’s not fountain and, most importantly, it doesn’t take the Hi-Tec-C refill. This one is felt tip. Outside of the delivery mechanism, it’s also got a magnetic cap, a perfectly sized 4 inch stature and a machine set screw to hold the ink in place. In other words, it’s one more pen to add to the ever-growing collection.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
