Have a question?
Hi James, are the Kickstarter Backers going to receive the GoBag earlier than Indiegogo Backers?
Hi Backers, I'm sorry for the lack of communication over the past few weeks. I have posted an update today with a lot of information in it. If there is anything else you need me to elaborate on please send me a message. Cheers, James

Creator can we get the update you was putting together 11 days ago?
Hi James, any updates?
Would you kindly check your DM ?!
Hello, could you provide an update as to how the project is moving forward and to confirm that the target date for shipping will be met? Also, once you start shipping, the window in which you expect to be able to ship to everyone that has purchased a Gobag.
As you might expect we are eager to receive this great travel friend.
Hi Backers, I'm just back from a factory inspection. I'm putting together the photos and update which I'll post in the next few days. The bag is looking great!!
Hi there, just wanna ask if the bags will be shipped out by August to mid- September ?
Hi guys, any updates? How is production going?
@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.
