World's Toughest EDC Duffel Bag: Lifetime Warranty

$93,754

663

We produced a limited quantity of bags in 2015 to validate our design and material choices and to see if we could create the "World's Toughest Duffel Bag". After getting a ton of feedback, refining the smallest of design details, dialing in our materials and building countless prototypes, we are ready to launch our flagship bag. Introducing The DAVE Jr Duffel 2.0 - We know it will be the toughest duffel bag you'll ever own, and we stand behind that with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!

 As Seen On...

Want to know how much you can fit into The DAVE Jr? Here is a quick video showcasing just how much you can easily pack into the bag with room to spare.

So you might be asking yourself, what is SuperFabric and why does it make the bag so awesome? SuperFabric is a patented technology which takes fabric and overlays it with tiny ceramic armor plates ("guard plates") in a specific arrangement. The gaps between guard plates allow complete flexibility. SuperFabric is designed to deliver unequalled abrasion durability and a wide  range of additional performance features...

1. Stain Resistant: Protects from a variety of stains like inks, oils, dirt, mud, grime, etc. Can also easily be washed-off and is very low maintenance.

2. Abrasion Resistant: Provides a flexible barrier from abrasions, scruffs and scrapes. 

3. Water Resistance: Since it's on the bottom of the bag don't be afraid to put the bag on wet ground. The stuff inside your bag will be completely dry.

4. Slash Resistant: Cannot be torn or sliced like other fabrics - cotton, nylon, etc. and it also wont snag, fray or tear!

STASH CAPSULE 

Made from the same durable 18-ounce waterproof tarpaulin and armor plated SuperFabric as the duffel, you can securely stow your valuables in the Stash Capsule for years to come. The high performance fabrics protect your belongings while the internal zippered pocket lets you separate important things like credit cards or IDs confidently. Use it for toiletries, small electronics, tactical concealment, a first-aid kit, or for carrying any other essentials.

Comes in the same colors as The DAVE Jr Duffel so you can have a matching set!

DOUBLES 

Curious about the duffels name? "The DAVE Jr Duffel 2.0" is named after our dear friend David L. Ruiz. He inspired not only the duffel's design, but all that we do. He taught us to always take the high road and never cut any corners.

Here is a little information on the AMABILIS team...

Marty Wahl: Pack/Bag Design Lead

Jeff Selin: Dojo Agency

Risks and challenges

If The DAVE Jr Duffel 2.0 is successfully funded, we will immediately place a purchase order with our manufacturing partner, a well established vendor of many premium brands around the world. Our manufacturer, as well as others in the supply chain are all set and ready to begin performing once they receive our green light to proceed. The funding will be used for material acquisition, production and fulfillment.

Although we are experienced in the process of bringing product to market on time, there is always the chance for unplanned circumstances that arise during the production period. Our past experience will help in recognizing problems and resolving the issues quickly and efficiently. We are a premium brand hyper-focused on delivering the highest quality product we can and providing our valued customers with a top notch shopping experience from beginning to end.
