      Hey there, just wondering if there are any updates on time lines for shipping?
      Thanks!

      Thanks Brie for letting Oliver know about the last update.

      I’ll post another update this week with up to date details about how things are going.

      Is it still possible to add another bag to my order? Considering to get one for my wife too.

      @Harsha Mathew Hi Harsha, Sorry, that's not possible, all rewards will be shipped together. If you have any questions please give me a shout. Cheers.

      Hi,Is it possible for the bag to be shipped by end of April. I need it for my travels in May.Thanks

    13. James Fyfe 2-time creator on February 20, 2018

      @John Sorry about that. Please use the following link if your email link doesn't work: https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/1116395139/gobag-the-ultimate-carry-on-backpack
      Give me a shout if that doesn't work. :)

    14. James Fyfe 2-time creator on February 19, 2018

      @Brie Danielle Hello. Sorry, I seemed to miss out your comment. The Wash Bag internal dimensions are 160 x 210 mm and the zip opening is 170mm.
      Please let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

    15. James Fyfe 2-time creator on February 19, 2018

      @22PLE Hi there!
      1) The volume is 36 litres. As a word of warning, there is no standard in the luggage industry for measuring volume. So a far better way to compare bags is by their size (ours is 55 x 35 x 20 cm).
      2) Yes it is made from plastic apart from the metal shaft. It weighs in at 80grams.

    16. 22PLE on February 12, 2018

      Hi, not sure if I have missed this information elsewhere...?

      1) Hi, can you let me know what is the internal capacity of this bag?

      2) what is the weight of the hand pump? I believe the entire thing is made of plastic?

      Thank you

    17. James Fyfe 2-time creator on February 7, 2018

      @Matt: Hi Matt, the pump will not need any connection. The nozzle is designed to interface directly with the valve. It is 23cm long and 4cm diameter. Please give me a shout if I can help with anything else.

    18. James Fyfe 2-time creator on February 7, 2018

      @Isaac Serrano: Hi Issac, we are aiming for the 20th of June at the moment. As you say, there are a lot of steps in between now and then that could affect the delivery date. If it changes we will let you know. Thanks, James

    19. Brie Danielle on February 7, 2018

      I'm filling out my survey and going over the add-ons. I'm disappointed to see that the hand pump is an add-on. Since most travelers will be going through airport security at some point, it seems like being able to recompress the bag on-the-go would be literally necessary.

      That said...

      What I'm really wondering about is the wash bag dimensions. One already comes with my bag, but I'd like to know if the dimensions will allow for any of my devices before I add a second one on. Please let me know asap.

      Thanks!

      When in June do you think you will be shipping the bags? The reason I am asking is that I am going to the World Cup in Russia, and this would be perfect for it.

      Thanks

      Hi there, sorry for the delay with the shipping forms. I thought I would have it completed last week. But setting up the survey has taken a bit longer than I expected. Hope to get it sorted this week.

      Hi Gobags! Any new updates on the shipping forms?

    27. Martin Howell on January 10, 2018

      Thanks for the reply, was just being hopeful rather than asking for a change. My older laptop will still fit, just went a bit beastly with the new one.

    28. James Fyfe 2-time creator on January 10, 2018

      @Martin Howell Hi Martin, I'm sorry but the pocket won't be big enough to fit your laptop. I can appreciate how annoyingly close it is, but we are unable to accommodate such a change at this stage because it will have a knock-on effect on other elements of the design. Thank you for understanding.

    29. James Fyfe 2-time creator on January 10, 2018

      @Le Thanh Binh Thanks for the support. No problem in shipping to Vietnam. :)

    30. Martin Howell on January 4, 2018

      Hey @creator

      Thanks for your responses to comments so far, below you mention it taking a 37cm x 25cm laptop, is that an absolute limit, or is there a bit of give in the pocket? Mine's around 39cm x 27cm x 2.5cm and just wondering if there is any hope of getting this inside?

      Thanks

      I am pretty excited about this. I am taking a trip over the Summer to Russia for the world cup, this bag would meet all my needs.
      Hope it gets here before then.

      @Mikkel Chr Mikkelsen Hi Mikkel, we have spared no cost when it comes to the zipper. It's made by YKK, the best in the business!

      I'm actually very concerned about the 2 meter zipper, because zippers are always the first thing that breaks for me, that is for very expensive jakets as well as bagpaks, here it will be very difficult if not impossible to fix with this design...

      Hi @Anthony Goh. Yes, they will be lockable in the production version.
      Sorry, should have clarified in the campaign description.

      Anthony Goh on December 8, 2017

      Just noticed that the zippers are not the lockable type.

      Any chance of those being put into the backpack?

    43. James Fyfe 2-time creator on December 8, 2017

      Thanks to everyone for backing.
      @Thomas Gimesi & @Anthony Goh Thanks for the suggestions we will have a chat about them with the team.
      @Mikkel Chr Mikkelsen I have just measured the prototype and it can hold a 37 x 25 x 2.5cm laptop.
      Cheers!

      I don't know if anyone suggested this already... maybe some RFID protection would be great - secret pocket or the top compartment. Cheers :)

      Thanks James.

      Would like to suggest some reflective bits can be included into your next project/design. That would be great for night visibility.

      BTW, love the overall look and concept.

      Can't wait for it to arrive.

    47. James Fyfe 2-time creator on December 6, 2017

      Thanks @Anthony Goh. There are some spots where you can attach reflective bits, like the webbing loops. I’m sorry, but this is the only colour we will be making this bag in. Thanks for backing the GoBag.

      How about any options for color choices in the future?

      Remy on December 5, 2017

      Love the concept of the bag due to it's waterproof properties and features that make it suitable for carrying around eletronic gear and clothes or other fabrics. I would love to see an added option for more camera friendly features, as that is the only thing that would be missing for me.
