About

The idea for the Pac Back Trio originated during a backpacking trip on the Salmonberry River. After spending a large portion of the trip sitting on I-Beams, we both knew there had to be a more comfortable backcountry seating option. However, all the options on the market were either too expensive, offered no back support, required cumbersome carbon fiber stays, or would add too much weight to our pack. This drove us to create the Trio. After forming the concept, we then spent the entirety of our junior year in college creating prototypes, learning from professionals in New York and Japan and applying for a patent. 

Once we won a few pitch competitions, had over a hundred people try the Trio and honed in our supply chain, we knew we were ready to share Trio with the world. While we are on Kickstarter to fund our first production run, we are also here to follow our dream of building a multipurpose equipment brand. We look forward to hearing how you like the Trio, and are incredibly thankful for your support!

Risks and challenges

We have already sourced manufacturing for all components of our production line and have developed a personal relationship with each company. We are already impressed with the quality of the samples that they have completed for us and we are confident that they will be able to do the same on a larger scale because they have many reputable customers.

Additionally, all of the assembly and sewing will occur a mere thirty minutes away from our location. This allows for us to directly observe the progress and maintain quality control.

We do not anticipate delivering on time to be an issue since we have been working with multiple factories and shipping companies to ensure on-time delivery. However, there is always the possibility that an unforeseen event could disrupt the timeline. If this is the case, we will update all backers as soon as we can and still strive to get the Trio to you as soon as possible.
