Where outdoor adventure meets inner-city style
The Ultimate Picnic Backpack has been designed from the ground up to include everything you need for the perfect picnic, road trip, hike, or day adventure. It features a divided cold storage compartment, and comes loaded with a woven, waterproof-backed picnic rug, and custom enamel picnic-ware so you'll always be ready for adventure at a moments notice.
Every single item has been created to elevate the experience of dining outdoors. Do it in style, do it with ease, do it well. We’ve made the most stylish, practical, all-inclusive day pack going around.
What makes The Ultimate Picnic Backpack special?
The Ultimate Picnic Backpack is made from waxed canvas that’s designed to age with grace – just like the wine and cheese you can carry inside it. We’ve decked it out with only the best trimmings, including extra thick leather strapping, YKK zipping, fully functioning metal buckles, and we've even doubled up the padding through the back and shoulder straps for when you’re going further than just a walk in the park.
The Ultimate Picnic Backpack includes:
- Backpack with 18L insulated cold storage compartment
- Woven waterproof-backed rug, 145 sq.cm / 57 sq.inch
- Beechwood serving board in machine washable sleeve
- 2 x hand-dipped enamel plates in machine washable sleeve
- 2 x hand-dipped enamel tumblers
- 2 x serrated stainless steel, wooden handle knives
- 2 x stainless steel, wooden handle forks
- Stainless steel, wooden handle cheese knife
- Corkscrew bottle opener
- Machine washable cutlery roll
Choose from two different colours
In order to choose our colour ways, we surveyed a sample group of mixed genders, ages, interests and tastes, and went with the two standout favourite choices, Camel and Dark Navy.
Built for versatility
Exploring the outdoors shouldn't always call for hardcore adventure gear or months of planning. We've created a versatile pack that's ready to take you outdoors at a moments notice, more often.
Key Product Features
We believe the beauty is in the detail, so we thoughtfully developed clever features you'll actually want to use. With only the finest materials used on all finishings, you can be sure your Ultimate Picnic Backpack will stand the test of time.
Machine-washable sleeves and a cutlery roll mean you won't have to worry about dirtying the inside of your pack. Pack up quickly, then wash with ease once back at home.
Development and Prototyping
To make the best product, we knew we had to find the right manufacturing partners. We scoured the globe and chose to work alongside a team with over 35 years of experience in making bags for some of the most established brands in the world. We’ve worked together, developed seven rounds of prototypes, field-tested, refined and sampled to come up with a product that we’re proud to deliver to the world.
Want to purchase as a Christmas gift?
No worries. While our packs won't be shipped till April 2017, we've created printable christmas e-cards. So, simply leave a note in the comments of the post-campaign survey to say that you've purchased as a gift and who for. We'll then email a printable card to you so that you're not rocking up empty handed come Christmas lunch. And don't worry, it'll be worth the wait.
How to Back
1. Choose a reward level. Kickstarter only allows you to choose one reward level per backer.

3. Relax, you're done for now. All details like shipping information, colour preference, and add-on specifics will be collected through a survey after this campaign has ended.

Risks and challenges
Our product is good to go once we reach our funding goal. Shipping is organised, postage and warehousing is sorted, and we’re ready to push the ‘go’ button on manufacturing. With that said, as with all campaigns, manufacturing delays are always a possibility.
We’re big on communication and can promise that if any unplanned issues or delays were to occur, then you’ll know about them right away.
