What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Our compression packing cubes are unique. Designed to help you stay organized on your trips but also designed to be rolled up to take minimum space when not in use!

We have gone through dozens of samples improving every minute feature to meet the high standard of durability and function  that is expected of a Vanguard Suitcase.  Our unique design pattern not only allows us to have a thicker polycarbonate shell when compared to other suitcases, but also makes your new suitcase stand out from the crowd. 

Our in house customer support system in the United States and Asia will be more than happy to inform you of the closest repair center and send the required materials ensuring you are covered no matter where you are. Does your suitcase come with that piece of mind?

 Our unique patent-pending replaceable wheels are designed in house to be replaced anywhere without any tools. The shell is coated with a scratch resistant coating and pattern which should minimize any scuffs and scratches. The surface allows for most blemishes to be wiped off with a rag and soap water. The zippers are of the highest quality YKK water-resistant zippers and can quickly be dispatched to any repair shop to ensure the product maintains the high-quality standards we support. 


The question now is not “should I get one” but “Let's go!”.

Risks and challenges

We are subsidizing the shipping costs to make it more affordable for our customers. We are able to do that because we do not keep an extremely high-profit margin and do not have investors who demand a large return on investment. We are a small group of entrepreneurs with a passion to travel and explore who poured our own money to develop this company. We have set a high buffer in the delivery timeline in order to meet the 1st week of may and may even deliver it sooner!

For quality assurance, we will personally visit the factory during the production as well as have an outside consultant to ensure quality control before shipping the products.

We understand that you placing your hard earned money and trust in our products. We promise to always be transparent and update our backers with our progress. We will continue to work with you after product delivery for the product repair and warranty. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
