Finally a Crushproof, Watertight, Cooler Backpack.

The Patent Pending RuckBucket Backpack
The Patent Pending RuckBucket Backpack

We’d Rather Be Outdoors Than Anywhere. A 5 Gallon Bucket Is More Useful Outdoors Than Anything.  

Buckets are lightweight, watertight and tough as nails but is anything a bigger pain in the butt to carry? One Sunday nothing was biting so just for kicks we put pack straps and insulation on a bucket - it worked so well that word got around and soon all our buddies wanted one. After 2 years of rigorous testing (and more than a little fishing) we bring you the ultra-useful RuckBucket Backpack.

Don't Let This Happen to You.
Don't Let This Happen to You.

A RuckBucket Really Is The World’s Toughest Backpack. 

It's literally 3 comfortable lightweight backpacks in one - a Crushproof, Watertight and Insulated Bucket Backpack. It maybe none of our business but when was the last time you broke a bucket? Exactly.

Risks and challenges

No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly, especially one meant to be fun. We have worked extremely hard to get this product ready for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment and believe we have mitigated every possible risk.

MANUFACTURING: This is my 3rd Kickstarter and our team has deep experience bringing similar products to market. Our sewing patterns are complete and we have firm quotes in place for every item needed and shipping and fulfillment dialed in.

There is typically a 30 day lead time to sew each batch of backpacks and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we're opening up backer levels by production batch and working with a sewing house with a track record for prompt quality.
