To focus on making highest quality, we only picked two color schemes BLACK and NAVY this time. However, we will add more colors hopefully on the next production.

In Afghanistan, founder Louis Kim drove MRAP on every mission. MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) is a vehicle that’s designed specifically to withstand improvised explosive device attacks and ambushes. The MRAP has been basically built to protect soldiers and help them fight better, and Jongoo put the MRAP's basis into Tactical City Pack to protect your stuff and help you do your business better.

"In 2010, I came to South Korea from Texas to join army. And in June 2011, I was shipped to Afghanistan as 3rd deployment of Ashena unit, Afghanistan based South Korean troop. While participating 30 missions for 6 months, two things always inspired me."

First - "While participating 30 missions for 6 months, I have used many military gears and backpack was my personal favorite. Military backpack I used was strong, tough, and durable. However, military backpack  was not perfect for my electronic devices since I liked to carry electronic devices out of the base. So I thought that military backpack would be a great functional bag if it has functionality that stores and protects electronic devices."

Second - "One day, I went on a mission and saw a lot of children living in poor conditions and asking for pen and paper. A little later I found out that Afghan children work, starve, and have had hard access to opportunity of education due to the long period of war. I wanted to help children through 1:1 supportive program upon arrival in South Korea home. However, there was no such program. I wanted to do something. Then military backpack crossed my mind and thought that it would an exciting project if I put the bag business idea with helping children in war."

Eshena has been named after Ashena unit in Afghanistan based South Korean troop. Ashena means ‘friend’ in Afghan local language. As we focus on functionality and purpose, we are trying to make functional products based on experience in military and run business with the purpose of helping Afghan children get an opportunity of education.

"I know those ideas and actions won't change the world much, but I felt like I have to do this project since I am one of a few who has experienced military gears through war and seen Afghan children."

 You can add as many as you want and those could be also an amazing gift for friends and family. Add-on price all includes shipping.

We work with a Korean manufacturer who has factories in Korea and China. Production in China can be proceeded when orders are over 1,000 and in Korea under 1,000 orders. And we talked to a supplier yesterday(Oct. 12) and they said they can ship us products by mid February if orders are over 1,000 since factory in China won’t be really busy during Christmas and New Year time this year. I know hitting 1,000 orders by December 3rd is kind of long way to go but with your help, it may be possible and we can deliver to backers in February. Please share our campaign with your friends, family, and backers you know. Here is our kickstarter page link:

Risks and challenges

Did you know that most outdoor gear is manufactured by Korean owned factories? Korea is the number 2 market for outdoor gear sales. Over 2 years of research, we found out Korean manufacturer with factories in Korea, China, and Vietnam. All factories are fully under control and keep the same highest quality. We are using materials most outdoor and military manufacturers use around the world and our manufacturer has been producing outdoor gears over 20 years and done producing global brand gears many times. We have built strong relationship with our manufacturer over 2 years. We normally buy materials and make products through Korean manufacturers. However, over 1,000 order, we will make products through factories in China or Vietnam.

DELAYS

We are committed to delivering our products to our backers, and make sure all backers get our great products. If any unexpected delays happen, backers are first to know about it.
