The idea of Owly Packs emerged during a trip in Australia. Truth is, we were broken and thus forced to sleep in parks while waiting for our seasonal job to begin. With nothing but our backpack, we had no protection from the weather and would always wake up soaked from morning dew. We hoped that our backpack could magically transform into a shelter. As magic apparently would not do it, we did. Since then, the concept has evolved tremendously. We went from a transformable backpack to a horrible brown tent and finally, after dozens of rounds of prototypes, to these fantastic products we are so proud to present you today!
We have invested more than $65,000 of our personal funds and an additional $35,000 through a business loan we have secured. The cost for manufacturing is $80,000 and we currently have $50,000, which is why we are asking for an additional $50,000 through our campaign. Any additional amount collected will be used to fund an inventory in Canada, with the goal of lowering our shipping time to less than a week across North America and less than 3 weeks for Europe. We will also use it to keep the research and development of other Owly Packs products going, such as a camera compartment bag which will connect to the top of the Owly Packs modular backpack.
CREATIVE PROCESS AND PRODUCTION
The initial idea was to create a backpack that could be transformed into a tent, a hammock and a sleeping bag. So, we bought an old sewing machine, then using tutorials to learn basic sewing, we managed to create a first functional prototype.
We did several tests on this product, which were convincing enough to take this project seriously.
In 2017, we contacted the Montreal Inventarium, a company specialized in intellectual property and commissioned an international patent search. They also took care of the creation of our technical drawings, and we applied and received a provisional patent to protect our idea in order to develop our products in complete peace of mind. Then, we created the Owly Packs company, and started investing countless hours in research and development.
It's in 2019 that we finally got our 100% finished products. We did all sorts of tests to confirm their quality, versatility and durability, and after more than two and a half years of work, we finally went into brand creation and marketing.

THEY TALKED ABOUT US:
Terms and conditions
Since we are shipping in many countries around the world, we can't pay taxes and customs fees for everyone. It means you will have to pay various freight and duties or taxes according to your country, including VAT and GST Taxes.
You can use that tool to calculate duties. Don't forget to convert U.S. dollars to your local currency:
International customers who are required to pay customs will receive an email from their local authorities asking for payment to have your order processed through customs. Once the payment is done, your order will be processed for final delivery.
International taxes are out of our control, but we are going to make sure to assist you during this process if you need any help from us. Please contact us on private message if you have any question about that.
As one of the first crowdfunding marketing agencies, Enventys Partners has brought more than 750 crowdfunding projects to life through lead generation, campaign page creation, public relations, email marketing, Facebook Advertising, campaign management and more.
Risks and challenges
Most of the challenges we faced were addressed during the product development phase. The search for factories, competent staff, language barrier with our different suppliers and communication times.
However, some challenges remain to be addressed. The different stages of the maritime import of merchandise remain a major challenge. Through quality control, freight forwarding, customs brokerage and warehousing, every detail will need to be carefully considered. To do so, our team will travel to Vietnam to personally take care of the quality control. We also commissioned two renowned Montreal companies for the forwarding and brokerage portion to take care of our goods.
Each challenge remains an opportunity to acquire new knowledge in our field and allows us to improve each of the entrepreneurial skills that the creation and development of a company requires. We face it with enthusiasm and see these challenges as the steps to take to take our business to the next level.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
