Nanobag 2.0 & Nanopack - The ultimate reusable shopping bags
Ultra light, ultra strong and ultra foldable. Finally tiny shopping bags that are convenient to carry in your pocket at all times.
Wouldn't it be nice to always have a comfortable bag handy?
We consume somewhere between 1 trillion to 500 billion of plastic bags per year, and it’s an unnecessary waste. With Nanobag 2.0 and Nanopack it's finally easy to carry a bag at all times. The compact super soft fabric easily folds into your pocket, and does away with bulky reusable shopping bags.
Why are we making the Nanobag?
This project was inspired by the countless plastic bags we've received when we go shopping. Unable to find high quality reusable lightweight shopping bags suitable to carry in our pockets, we decided to create the the Nanobag. After the success of our first campaign, we’re now launching Nanobag 2.0 and the Nanopack.
With Nanobag 2.0 we’ve made it bigger, more comfortable to carry, reinforced the seams, attached the pouch to the bag and upgraded the design.
Improved Quality Control
We're committed to creating quality products that will last. The bags are made with the best lightweight ultra-high-performance fabrics we could find. This time we've also upgraded the stitching of all the seams, to eliminate any potential weakness. We've also put in place a new quality control and testing process to eliminate faulty products. We guarantee that your bags will be of excellent quality.

Based on feedback from the community we’ve also decided to make the Nanopack, a drawstring backpack from the same fabric. In order to make it comfortable to carry, we’ve made 2cm wide straps from our unique fabric, rather than strings. This way the weight is distributed over a larger area, making it comfortable to carry. It also helps keep the volume and weight to a minimum.
A carbon positive bag
We consider our bags environmentally conscious, as they contain less materials than other bags in their category and help reduce single use plastic bag consumption. In addition we'll offset any CO2 emitted from the production of the fabric, stitching and shipping of the project by planting mangrove trees in Myanmar with Worldview International Foundation. Mangrove trees are one of the most effective tools against climate change, and are ten times more effective than most other tree species. Mangroves take CO2 out of the air and bind it to the ground, and prevent it from escaping into the atmosphere. As an added bonus they prevent soil erosion and help sustain coastal ecosystems.
We offer FREE International registered shipping to all our backers. Parcels will be shipped with tracking.

Tiptop Things are a group of friends working together to infuse everyday items with cutting edge technology. Our mission is to make quality products that you will love. In everything we do the environment is factored in, and we try to establish best practices in order to minimize negative impact.
Why do we need your support?
We can't do this without you. The funds we raise here will go towards ordering the fabric, stitching of the bag as well as logistics. Our Kickstarter backers will be the first to have the Nanobag 2.0 and the Nanopack in hand. We simply can't do this without your support. A big thank you for taking the time to consider our project.
Risks and challenges
We’ve already delivered our first Nanobag and Air Deck campaigns, so we already have a track record. The Nanobag 2.0 and Nanopack have been developed and tested over the past few months and we feel confident that we can do a good job with this. As with every project, there can always be unforeseen things along the way. There might also be minor changes to the product as we get input from the community along the way. We promise you that we're 100% committed to the project and that we will keep you updated every step of the journey.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
