PRODUCTION PLAN:


We're using the same factory we use for the production of our outdoor packs under the MHM brand so we're already set up and ready to rock for the Colfax production if we're successfully funded. Here is what our production schedule will look like... 


July 2014: order materials and begin ramping up production 

August-October 2014: Production 

November 2014: Delivery to CO.ALITION HQ/ final assembly and packaging 

Late November 2014: Shipping to all Backers 

Early December 2014: Delivery! Enjoy your new pack and we're eternally grateful for your support of this project and making the world's first smart pack a reality!

Risks and challenges

When working in manufacturing one of the most obvious challenges is production delays. However, we've carefully planned and built our production timeline so even if there's a production delay we can still deliver backers' rewards on time. We have factored a production delay into our timeline, just in case, so we can still deliver by the estimated delivery date even in the event of a delay. If there's no delay, we'll actually be able to deliver rewards to our backers earlier than they expected. The backers of this project should have confidence in us and our ability to deliver as we have well over a decade of combined experience in large-scale manufacturing. We're not new to this at all. We have tons of knowledge and experience in manufacturing, logistics and delivering product world-wide as we've successfully done this for years producing outdoor backpacks under our MHM brand. The Colfax packs used in the video are fully functional prototypes that perform exactly as described, the images are actual photos that are not rendered at all. This is a real product that's nearly ready for you to carry around town. We just need everyone's much appreciated help to back this project and turn it into a reality!
