@Natasha Fitzpatrick Hi Natasha, we're still on track for shipping in mid-August :) If anything changes I'll let everyone know. Thanks, James
Hey there, just wondering if there are any updates on time lines for shipping?
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.
Olivier - you should read Update 13 from April 29.
Still plan to ship in June 2018?
Hello! Any news?
Hi James! Just wondering if we could get another update on the progress of production thus far.
I'm going to use it on trips I found on https://www.lokaltravel.com/explore I hope it arrives before my trip dates!
@Anthony Goh Hi Anthony, yes you can :) Please use the CrowdOx link we sent you to add other bags to your order. Thanks.
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
@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. :)
@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.
@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.
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?
@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.
@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
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.
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.
Link doesn’t work for crowd ox ?
Can you give us more info about the pump on crowdox? Would like to know the size and the type of connection needed to connect to the bag
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.
Hi Udit, I have just sent you a direct message :)
can you please send me a VAT receipt for this purchase.
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?
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.
@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.
@Le Thanh Binh Thanks for the support. No problem in shipping to Vietnam. :)
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?
Your backpack is awesome. Hope to see it soon. Any problem to deliver to Vietnam?
@Jeremy Kam Hi Jeremy, we will be using CrowdOx and sending out invites early in the New Year. Happy Holidays!
When is the collection for delivery details? And through what medium?
Glad to hear it @Isaac Serrano! That sounds like an awesome trip!
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.
@Philip Poulsen Hi Philip, no worries about customs for EU backers, EU shipments will be made within the EU. Thanks for backing!
Is it shipped from uk or asia? I am thinking customs.
@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...
You hired "backerninja.com" which spams people using stolen data from the kickstarter leak 2014....
When it comes to flying, no one likes baggage fees. If there is a way to fit impossibly large luggage in the overhead compartment, people will find a way
But There is Perfect Way :)

Hi @Anthony Goh. Yes, they will be lockable in the production version.
Sorry, should have clarified in the campaign description.
Just noticed that the zippers are not the lockable type.
Any chance of those being put into the backpack?
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.
Laptop up to 15", there are many different sizes, what are the exact dimensions it can hold?
I don't know if anyone suggested this already... maybe some RFID protection would be great - secret pocket or the top compartment. Cheers :)
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.
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.
@Remy I hear you Remy. We will consider this in the future. Thanks for supporting the project.
Love the concept and design.
BTW are there any reflective bits on the bag?
How about any options for color choices in the future?
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.
