5 Days left... Sample Factory Sketches attached

Only five days left before the end of the campaign. We are revolutionizing what bags should be, and the industry has noticed! Because of your support, many companies have inquired about GoPlug bags, and I am confident we will change the standard for what a bag should be.

Throughout this campaign I have done my best to be as open and transparent as possible. I know some of you are not happy with the answers/decisions I've made, or in some cases, the answers I haven't been able to give. Demanding answers will not change what I can provide. A team of engineers and are working tirelessly to make these bags as efficient as possible. My textile factory is moving quickly to finalize the design and ensure an on-time delivery. You can see the latest samples below (except the computer trolley -- that's coming soon!).

I don't want this brand to be here today and gone tomorrow, I'm working with some of the best companies in the world to make this possible. We want this brand to be around for a long time! The money you pledge will enable us to be here for a long time, so if you do have an issue or problem with your bag (we don't anticipate that happening), there will be a company in existence who can take care of it for you.

Developing a new product has many moving parts and I'm taking this project seriously. We want to make sure we deliver you a product that you'll be proud to own!

This has just been the beginning of great things to come.

      If the sling will be as rendered, I'll definitely switch from my messenger pledge which look less awesome from the sample photo :) BTW, sent you a message regarding my multiple pledge a while ago. Without your responses, I hope you have noted it.

      I hope that the final camera backpack has the tripod holder. The mockup is missing it entirely. Otherwise everything looks great, very futuristic looking, makes me want to get a 3rd bag.

      When is ANY information on the trolley bag going to be given? Photos of the inside? As others have said, we're locked in, in only 5 days and you've shown virtually nothing on the trolley bag and made significant changes to other bags.

      Additionally, is a determine of final specific batteries going to be given within the next 5 days? I understand looking for the best options, but at some point you must stop looking and move forward. Depending on exactly which one you go with, this could cause problems for some people with regards to laptops.

      Your ideas are great and I'm very excited for these bags, but there is some critical missing information that really should be available before people are locked into amounts and items.

      Um just curious but why are there two power buttons now and when did those get added btw I love to new design of the backpack and sling very modern futuristic style

      @Marlena. Think of the sling bag like a bandolier of bullets from old westerns, but with a nice bag on your back. I have seen people use them like 1 strap backpacks too.

      Based off that, I'm glad I went with the backpack over the messenger bag. Although, I'm looking at that sling bag with more than a bit of curiosity. I don't have a real concept of what a sling bag is, but this might mean I should do a little investigation. I definitely want more information about your sling bag design, as much as you can give us at this time. Thanks for the update.

      I love the roll up window for the solar chargers. Great addition!!

      ...and I want them now, because I'm excited...maybe there was even a squeee looking at the new sling.

      Wow..from the latest update, the sling bag looks completely different from what was shown before. It now looks a lot closer in design to the computer backpack. Is it safe to say that the internal compartments will be similar to that of the backpack? Are the old specs of the sling bag still relevant or is this to change too? I know these are just sketches, but any chance of showing some actual pics of the new sling bag? This is important…as I would have to alter my pledge depending on this. Cheers, Stef :)

      Seeing how fast you are changing the designs of all the bags, I think you're lacking quite a bit in communication. We should be getting updates about every change, especially seeing how there are only a handful of days left before our pledges, for all intents and purposes, are locked in. And while I appreciate that you've been trying to improve on the bags, there may be design elements a lot of us backers may not agree with you on.
      For example, I personally dislike the new design of the new messenger bag flap. While it may allow the solar battery to collect a little extra sun, it also appears to reduce protection against pickpockets trying to get at my stuff as well as protection from the elements. Aesthetics-wise, it also seems to be a little unappealing. Also, the design of the sides seem to allow for rain to slide directly into the main compartment.

      @Karl-- I can't attach photos in this comment section. I'll send it to you in a message.

      @josh - Can you not snap a few photos of the Carry On Bag to show? I appreciate the artist renditions, just following up on your previous messages that you will be posting photos and videos of all of the items people are pledging for. If you don't physically have the bags to snap a photo of or take a video of - just say so... Thanks!
