VRYPAC - The Minimalist Backpack for Sports & Travel

$3,950

The Vrypac backpack is such a versatile bag, where do I start?

The endless possible uses for Vrypac.
The endless possible uses for Vrypac.

For Runners & Power Walkers- A light, snug backpack that tautly holds your things.

For Travelers- A convenient personal item for holding valuables to send through airport security, and carry with you at your resort destination.

For Harried Parents- A bag that frees your hands, and stays out of your way.

For Extreme Sports Athletes- A safe new way to centralize your balance while on skateboards, bikes, or doing Parkour.

The idea for Vrypac came about one afternoon when I wanted to go for a short jog.  I didn't need water or a lot of stuff, so my hydration pack was just too cumbersome for the task.  I don't like waist belts and fanny packs, but I do need my phone, wallet, keys, and sunglasses.

Hence, the conception of a backpack that is right-sized for action sports.  Most backpacks boast of how much they can pack in.  Vrypac's magic is that it holds your essentials with virtually no impact on your balance, agility, or freedom of movement.  At only 9 oz. and ergonomic, you can wear it sitting in a chair and forget you have it on!

This makes extreme sports safer, and other activities more convenient.  Running, traveling in a tropical resort, going through airport security to a plane, or strolling through a Farmers' Market with two shopping bags, Vrypac makes all of these things more convenient. 

The sternum straps are the key to a snug fit, thus centralizing the cargo's mass to your body. They adjust vertically & horizontally, and are removable altogether.  The safety reflectors will be repositioned on the newer version.

Centralizing your essentials on your back, and with two adjustable and removable sternum straps for fit, Vrypac is of great use to many.  And thus a great gift idea to buy in bulk.

Pink will come either in late 2017, or early 2018.

While the Original is well made and well reviewed, a couple of changes will be made for the next edition.  Furthermore, either the second or third delivery will come with the option of pink.

Please help me fund the next edition, which will have minor aesthetic changes and a couple added features. Vrypac's essence is how thin it is, thus having virtually no effect on center of gravity, agility, or movement. You can sit down in it, or wear a coat over it.

Risks and challenges

The purpose of this small fundraiser is to raise the capital for small design changes in the second edition. The Original has great product reviews and you can get it promptly when the campaign ends. Aiming for just before Thanksgiving (very much in our interest) for the new ones, but no guarantee.
