About this project
Hi Kickstarter Community,
The creation of the ZenTreks brand was inspired with the idea to create a backpack company focused on sustainability, durability, mobile renewable energy and affordability. Our technologically advanced patented backpacks were originally designed for use by the brave men and women of the military. However, after much consideration, we think that our backpacks can serve a greater global good if the technology is utilized on a wider scale. Thus, through this Kickstarter project we embark on a journey to make our backpacks available to the community at large. Through this project we hope to achieve a critical mass by reaching out to the Kickstarter community to obtain support, feedback, ideas to further the sustainable energy and responsible consumption movement, and to support ongoing start-up operations to reach a global audience.
Our re-engineered patented technologically advanced backpacks provide a source of mobile renewable energy for the end-user in a sleek stylish and easy to use design. When designing the look and feel of the bag, we took into account that the average military person in the field carried anywhere from twenty to forty pounds of charged battery for each excursion. Thus, we designed the second generation of solar panels to be light, thin, durable, compact, flexible, bendable, and able to generate 30% more electricity than the current silicon wafer solar panel technology (which if cracked ends its useful life). In addition, we also took into account that the average military person in the field encountered harsh and brutal outdoor environmental conditions. By choosing the right material for the exterior of the backpack we knew we could extend protection to the end user’s valuables inside. We embarked on a journey of testing and experimenting and the end result was the discovery and subsequent use of patented nano-fabric made from polycarbonate hardened ceramics fused upon ballistic fibers, which has three times the strength of leather at a fraction of the weight, is slash proof, abrasion proof, stab resistant, and water resistant. Furthermore, we took into account comfortability and design parameters. Each backpack was carefully crafted, designed, and then re-designed for breathability, airflow, and conformation to the individual. Our backpacks foster and encourage responsible energy consumption, provide a unique end-user experience, and are comfortable and lightweight. Lastly, we are proud to say that these backpacks were designed and are made in the U.S.A. The team at ZenTreks is very excited to share what years of research and development have achieved.
