This 4-in-1 cart that converts into additional seating will solve a problem everyone faces from attending sporting events to camping to a day at the beach.

OME Gear will be launching a Kickstarter in September to solve the usual frustrations that lugging around beach, camp, and sporting equipment entails. Founders Julie Weldon and Stacey Pierce are bringing together OME Gear, which stands for Oceans + Mountains = Earth, to put an end to the feeling of being a pack mule, and experience the outdoors with ease instead.

It all started when Julie Weldon’s parents were enjoying their time at the beach and spotted a single mom hauling towels, shovels, chairs along with looking after her three kids. They thought to themselves, “There has to be a better solution out there.” They began sketching ideas of a beach cart that would also convert into a chair.

This dream sketch came to a halt, only to be picked up 15 years later by daughter Julie Weldon. She called up her dad one morning and said, “I keep thinking about your beach product. Could I take it to market for you?” Through tears he said, “That would be a dream come true.”

After partnering with a dear friend and colleague, the two of them sold a majority percentage of the company to a manufacturing partner and redesigned the product. It was introduced at trade shows where they won innovation awards at both the Surf Expo and National Hardware Show against big players in the industry such as Salt Life, Dakine, Volcom, and Life is Good.

In May 2014, Weldon came to the difficult conclusion, based on a myriad of factors, that it would be impossible to be successful with their current manufacturing partner and deliver a quality product, so she resigned.

2018 is the year to bring this product into fruition once and for all. Weldon happily joins her fiancé Stacey Piece in pursuit of making the OME Gear beach cart a reality. This 4-in-1 cart that converts into additional seating will solve a problem everyone faces from attending sporting events to camping to a day at the beach.

OME Gear is providing sneak peeks and early bird discounts for those who sign up their mailing list now at omegear.com.
