      I am backer #315 and haven't heard a word despite a couple of emails and several posts, so we're all in the same sinking boat together. Despite many promises we couldn't even get regular updates, which is completely mind blowing. I mean really!!! They were waiting on components and Chinese holiday and still couldn't give a update. They were not that busy that they couldn't let the customers know what was happen. We have waited over 2 years after paying for a product. Just pathetic....This along with the Piece Kickstarter device has ruined me with using Kickstarter. I was actually fortunate that Amex help me get a refund from Piece after complaining that the product was never delivered as expected. Space Case will be the last time I ever use Kickstarter. For now on, if I support something it will purely be a donation type contribution in my mind so to not expect anything. This model has many flaws that leaves many of us frustrated and disappointed when we are actually just trying to help people bring what we think are great products to market. I am so disappointed and have loss all faint in this model.

      Thanks @Larcombe. I'm #815 and chose the early bird 2-piece any color or artwork carry on + check in case. That's what I'm confused about, because I haven't picked my color yet. Hope to hear from them soon.

      "Please see attached image and reply to this email to confirm your address and order.

      We currently do not have the 29” Check in piece in stock. Please reply to this email stating if you would like for us to send your carry-on now or would you prefer to have them both shipped at the same time when the 29” Check in becomes available.

      Your Powerbank purchase will be delivered to you by June.

    18. Diana J. Brodie 4 days ago

      Got my email today but didn't give me an option to wait and get both at once. I wonder if that's b/c I purchased my 2nd later?

      @PlanetTraveler should I be worried about my 2nd larger case?

      Very psyched to get my carry on.

    19. Paul Holmes 4 days ago

      Received my email also. Basically, it states that do you want to wait for both cases to be shipped together or take the carry-on now. I opted to wait for together. Extra batteries if purchased will be shipped in June. There is a bonus also.

    20. Fraser Larcombe 4 days ago

      Excellent, got my confirmation email, I'm quite early on the list but am sure others will start seeing their emails soon, then next, the case! :-)

      Oh and our case has a 10 year warranty and the tech case one is 5 years.

    23. Missing avatar

      David Solomon 5 days ago

      @Peter, didn't realize about the scale but the battery I was referring to was to charge your own devices with a USB cable which the tech case doesn't have, not does it have Bluetooth for a speakerphone, the tracking is only covered for a year then you have to pay more unlike the space case we are supposedly getting has 10 years tracking. It doesn't have the fingerprint reader for opening and I doubt it has the alarm feature either.

      So it lacks several features included in our case. It is not the same case and backers keep posting comments like the one below saying "look people can buy our case now on eBay for cheaper, this is crazy". This is not true.

      I have been as critical as anyone regarding the creator but this is not our case. It is likely much easier to design and build and while it probably takes some resources away from our case it is certainly not unethical or improper. I give them a pass on this one. As for our case, as I have said many times--they had no idea what they were getting into, they did not have a working prototype as is required by KS, never should have promised delivery by late 2015 because they were clueless about the process and of course have made tons or misrepresentations along the way, but this is not one of them.

      @David Solomon:
      This case has a scale in it and it can be tracked world wide witch means it has to have a battery in it:

      Why do people keep posting this case. It is not the same case. No battery, no scale, no Bluetooth speaker phone. They have made plenty of mistakes and misrepresentations but this is not one of them.

    27. Michael Didyk 6 days ago

      Have a look at these listings on ebay and ebags, selling the Space Case for about half of the retails price listed on the campaign page when we originally backed. How is this allowed to happen before the seed funders get their bags? Also, these are difference design colors than offered to us. Should have waited and bought retail I guess!

      @Greatbigstuff. And therein lies one of the fundamental problems with Kickstarter. Creators have no obligation to do anything once they get the money. We are relying on a creator's integrity.

      I never realized that all KS does is wait to see if a backer hits its funding goal and if it does it then releases the money (less the KS fee of course). KS doesn't ask for anything or hold the money until a creator shows need.

      Planet Traveler could keep all our money and never deliver a single case to any of us and spend the rest of their future selling other cases. Sure if they became profitable we could sue them and likely win but good luck with the time and money involved in that and they could still squander all the money.

      If you want to get really sick read about the Coolest Cooler, a cooler not all that different than our cases that included a bunch of new technology that raised far more money than us. The creator actually started charging backers an additional fee to jump ahead in line all the while he was selling them on Amazon and elsewhere. Thousands of backers are still waiting. Oh and hundreds of reviews said they were crap and falling apart.

      Bottom line--it could be months before they produce any more batches of carry-ons or the check-ins and likely will be. I don't see a scenario that gets those out before July best case. And there is nothing we can do but sit here and hope they do the right thing. Keep in mind they lose money by producing our cases because they have already been paid by us! They can make cheaper versions and sell them wherever they want and actually make all kinds of money. This is so frustrating.

      @Damon - You. Are absolutely right that they should not be distracting their fulfillment of their backers orders by producing other products. If there's assembly line capacity, it should not allocated to product that is not part of year and a half old orders.

      @GreatBigStuff, I see that, but a Space Case none the less, and taking away from the production of what we all backed here, just doesn't look good. Why expect transparency at this point? I've been patient, but in my opinion, it's kind of an insult seeing that.

    32. GreatBigStuff 7 days ago

      @Damon - Note that the cases the are being sold on Touch of Modern do not have all of the features of the Space Case 1. The ToM version have GPS only. It does not have fingerprint unlock, bluetooth audio, alarm, or USB charging.

      All estimation or statements ever made by this company where wrong.
      For e.g. they said that the case would be finished in November 2015 - wrong. They said the will get the delivery in February 2017 - wrong, they got it in March 2017 (if this is true).
      They said they will contact the supporters starting February - I know nobody who's been contacted yet. Do you?
      Did they ever answer mails or comments? Not to my knowledge.
      Conclusion?
      They lied to us since there beginning.

      The Touch of Modern app now features the Space Case, you won't believe the price. Not the first Kickstarter item I've seen available on their site, and I'm sure it won't be the last. Really disappointed to say the least.

      1. This is shipment 1 of how many?
      2. How many backers will get their space case in this round?
      3. When does the last shipment arrive and when will the last batch of backers expect their space case?

      Looking forward to receiving my suitcase at last. Hoping that it indeed happens after all these years. However, when checking my order on the website, I was surprised to read a "Prado art" in parenthesis. I'm horrified. I would never had chosen that garish work and I do hope I can get a clean, simple, and elegant carry-on.

      Well appreciate the pics! My concern is that it doesn't look like a large shipment. Also, I'm not wrapped up in all the excitement, considering this is just one of the carry-on types. What about the other options and the larger cases?????

      @GreatBig Stuff, loved the pun! Was the creator "still unloading" his container? There is such a thing as a conditional release - maybe the goods were at the warehouse pending marking certification or similar matter. The fact is, I don't know. Nor do you. But splitting hairs doesn't change anything. It is possible to be the World's Rightest Man, believe that your truth is infallible, and argue your way all the way to the Supreme Court. But sometimes the writ of certiorari is just denied. Argument is futile.

      I've read your comments in this and other projects. And as a veteran backer of no fewer than 238 projects, I can't think of one that hasn't had a delay and/or glitch of some type or other. Some were very major...as in 'the money is gone and the project is a bust.' But after enough disappointments you just come to realize that it's just part and parcel of the Kickstarter process.

      Kickstarter is not for the perfectionist. Or the impatient. It is what it is. And more often than not, that is...frustrating.

    49. GreatBigStuff on March 14

      @Kristen.... Your generalized explanation is true, but not in this case. My issue is that Planet Traveler stated "The Space Case 1 shipment has arrived to our warehouse. We will post a full update with images on Monday." That was on Friday. This means, if true, it had completed all of the rigamarole that you described. It means it had been released and was "at their warehouse." At that point, they have 2 hours to unload the container. For Monday to roll around and they then claim "We are still busy unloading the container..." was what raised my suspicion. Either their Friday claim was false or their Monday claim was false. In any case (no pun intended), there was no assertion that there was a CBP delay. They have been quite skilled in coming up with excuses. Please don't offer up more imaginary excuses to help them with their bullsh!ttery.

      And, yes, I am pissed. I am traveling come Monday morning and have to go buy cases. My Space Cases will be delivered to my mail drop service while I am away... or after I return. That sucks!
