 Want more than 3 Travel Sets?

Select the “Three NOMATIC Travel Sets” reward and simply add $150 to the $475 pledge amount for each additional travel set you want.

NOMATIC was born and raised on Kickstarter.  In 2014 we launched the BASICS Wallet. Then in 2015 we launched the BASICS Notebook. Thanks to our incredible backers and supporters, over 100,000 people worldwide are now enjoying our products everyday. As our brand has evolved, we have changed our name from BASICS to NOMATIC. Today we are excited to bring you our most epic product yet, The NOMATIC Travel Bag.

 

The NOMATIC Travel bag was designed for a 3-7 day trip. By combining the best features from a backpack, duffel bag and general luggage, we have created the ultimate travel bag to help you spend less time fussing with your luggage and more time enjoying your journey. The NOMATIC Travel Bag has over 20 features that make it the most functional travel bag ever. On top of being packed with incredible functionality, the bag has a sleek minimalist design, is made of strong weather-proof materials and is built to last.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Innovative strap system allows you to switch between backpack and duffel in seconds and have no dangling straps.

    

 

 

The NOMATIC Vacuum Bag is included with every travel set and is both water proof and air tight. This added feature will help you pack all you need in half the space, leaving more room for other travel essentials.

 

 

 

 

In addition to the vacuum bag, a laundry bag comes with each travel bag to complete the set. When closed, the laundry bag was designed to fit perfectly inside the door of the shoe compartment of your travel bag. When you arrive at your destination, the laundry bag expands and hangs on a door knob so you can easily toss dirty clothes in. When the trip is over and the laundry bag is full, it will fit back into your travel bag perfectly and keep your dirty clothes separate and organized.

 

 

 

The NOMATIC Travel Bag is equipped with an RFID safe pocket and a TSA approved lock. This “mini safe” keeps your scannable and valuable items safe during travel from pickpockets, room service, and other potential threats.

Perfect place to safely travel with valuables and RFID scannable items.

The padded and secure laptop pocket allows you to leave your backpack or laptop bag behind and travel like a pro with just one bag. The laptop pocket can hold a 15" laptop comfortably. Plus with the airport security friendly design, you won't have to take your laptop out of the pocket.  Just open the bag and lay the main compartment door flat (as shown in the second image below) and you will be good to go.  

 

 Keep your tablet accessible and safe in this easy access padded pocket found on the inside of the main compartment door. The secure velcro flap was designed with a slot to allow you to charge your tablet on the go with a power bank while keeping it secure.

 

Located at the top of the bag is a water bottle pocket lined with a water proof material to allow you to stay hydrated on the road while keeping all of your belongings dry in case of a leak.

 

If you travel with a roller bag, The NOMATIC Travel Bag will be the perfect companion. We have designed a built in durable sleeve to fit over the handle of your roller bag.

 

The exterior of the NOMATIC Travel Bag is a durable 100% water-proof tarpaulin material. Tarpaulin is commonly used on rugged outdoor bags because of its ability to endure and stay strong in harsh conditions.

 We have also integrated waterproof zippers into the exterior of the bag to keep your gear protected in the rain and snow.

 

This bag features a large opening into the main compartment which gives you easy access and visibility for packing.  The shoe, socks, and underwear compartments help you to stay organized. In addition, the strong tarpaulin material holds its shape to make packing easier.

 Put 1 or 2 pairs of shoes in the shoe compartment, and socks, underwear or a light jacket in the upper compartment, and still have plenty of room for everything else.

On the bottom of the bag we have included a shoe compartment where you can easily fit up to two pairs of shoes. (2 pairs of U.S. size 12 fit comfortably inside)

 

On the top of the bag is a similar compartment to the shoe compartment where you can keep socks, underwear, or even a light jacket for easy access when you get cold while traveling.  These compartments were designed to help you organize your packing rather than just stuffing everything into one big pocket like most duffel bags.

 

 

 

At 21" x 14" x 9" inches this bag meets domestic and international carry-on standards.

Keep your phone, sunglasses, and other valuables protected in this soft fleece-lined pocket on the top side of the bag.

 

With this combination of mesh, fleece-lined, and zipper pockets, you can keep your cords, power banks, laptop chargers and any other odds and ends right where you need them.

 

The side pocket is sized to hold a BASICS Notebook or any other book of a similar size (roughly 5.5" x 8.75")

  

When the bag is worn in backpack mode, this pocket is easily accessible, making it the perfect place for frequently needed travel documents.  Also, because it is positioned with the zipper close to your back it makes it more difficult for pickpockets to access this zipper undetected.

 

Carrying your luggage can become painful and heavy, so we added a very comfortable handle to make your interactions with the bag as enjoyable as possible.

 

Last but not least we have added a sternum strap for added comfort and support.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The following three accessories are designed to fit perfectly inside the bag and to match the design of the bag to create the perfect travel kit.  However, in order to simplify the ordering process on Kickstarter these products will not be available for order until after our Kickstarter campaign ends, but they will ship with the travel bag.  

Toiletries bag 

Made from the same Tarpaulin material as the Travel Bag, this toiletries bag will last forever and will keep liquid spill inside the toiletries bag and away from your clothes.

 

Waist Strap

To give you better support when carrying the bag, you can clip on these waist straps to distribute the weight more comfortably.  Also each strap has a pocket big enough to hold your passport for even more functionality.

Shoe bag 

In case you want to keep your dirty shoes away from other items or want to keep other items away from your shoes, this shoe bag is perfect for the job.

 

Shirt Organizer

Using the plastic guide that comes with this accessory, you can fold your shirts to just the right size, then store them in the organizer to avoid wrinkles while traveling.

 

We are confident that we can deliver all NOMATIC Travel Set rewards by January 2017.

 

Marketing 

The marketing for this campaign has been performed by two different marketing agencies. The first being Matix Labs which ran throughout the entire duration of the campaign. The other was Funded Today which performed their marketing efforts from August 11th to September 1st.

 

           

 

 

 

We love creating innovative products that help people simplify, organize and improve their lives. We are so grateful to all of our backers and supporters who helped us successfully launch the Basics Wallet and Basics Notebook on the Kickstarter Platform.  Thanks for all of your support!  If you have any feedback or questions please contact us through our website www.nomatic.com

 

 

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that arise when trying to bring a product to life. There are so many moving parts that must be managed. However with this being our third product launch, we can confidently say that we are experienced in this process and have developed systems and processes to mitigate the risks that arise in this process. We will work hard to ensure that we deliver what we promise and to go the extra mile whenever it is possible. Thanks for believing in us!
