Want your camera, phone, car keys, wallet safe and dry! Don’t want any restraints? Want to be free to explore and enjoy every moment?

That's for everyone enjoying:

  • sailing 
  • whitewater sports
  • snowboarding, surfing and kite-surfing and all water sports 
  • hiking and trekking 

The XO 6.2 backpack by Helixot is the answer! It allows you to fully enjoy your favorite outdoor activity while keeping your personal items accessible and dry!  

It’s 100% submersible, so you're ready for any adventure life takes you on, regardless of the weather or your surroundings.

 

 

 

Its unique and clever design makes the XO 6.2 backpack to be fully submersible, ergonomic and easy to use.

The XO 6.2 by Helixot is a hybrid backpack made up of two parts:

  • A coated fabric, useful for all nautical activities, which is very durable and completely waterproof.
  • A screw cap closing mechanism and welded seams, which ensures airtight protection.  

 

 

 And any other activities you are up for!

 

 

 

 

 

 "Everything started during a trip to Burma. I was in a tiny boat on the Inle lake, and felt completely helpless, with no way to protect my passport, phone and camera if they fell in the water… Back in my guesthouse, nice and dry, I started sketching different bag designs. The idea was born: a backpack which would follow the shape of my back, with a watertight screw cap closing mechanism to keep my valuables safe and dry…”

Below my first sketches…  

Grégoire, Helixot founder

 

 

 

 

 

 We have already self-funded:

  • Prototype development carried out in Malaysia in partnership with French companies (for graphic design and 3D printing). After considerable collaboration with the Malay craftsmen and our French partners, to fine-tune and optimize the bag, the prototype was finalized. The XO 6.2 Backpack was born. 
  • Prototype production
  • Identification of suppliers to manufacture the XO 6.2 backpack with a "'Made in France" label. 
  • Intellectual property protection.
  • Marketing campaign launch.

Choosing to make this bag in France allows production proximity and ensures a quality build, thanks to the expertise of local partners.

  • Towels, clothes  
  • Snacks  
  • Etc.  

 

 Completely waterproof: your belongings are 100% protected

Innovative: a unique screw-cap closing mechanism and welded seams, ensuring truly airtight protection

 

 

 

 

 

Specifically designed for outdoor activities, just adjust your XO 6.2 backpack and go! You won’t even notice it’s there.

 

  

 

The fifteen-centimeter/six inch wide screw cap closing mechanism lets you bring all kinds of items with you. Smartphones, wallets, portable speakers, car keys, as well as food, will be safe and dry in your XO 6.2 Backpack. The secret to being airtight is the screw cap!

To bring this unique innovative product to market! We want to produce the first series of XO 6.2 backpacks!  

Our crowdfunding campaign will enable us to fund the initial investment necessary to begin production: manufacturing a plastic injection mold for the cap and strapping for the welding process.  

By preordering and contributing at least to the campaign a total of €31,000 we will reach the factory minimum order and be able to begin production.  

Become a partner in this venture and enjoy the first available XO 6.2 bags!

Risks and challenges

Our prototype passed the testing stage successfully, which is why we are confident in entering the mass production stage.

We are dedicated to setting our brand and product standards high, and we will do our absolute best to fulfill our backers deliveries.

However, shipping a large number of products at once can be challenging considering we have a relatively small team. In order to process all our orders smoothly, we will immediately send our backers a feedback after our campaign ends and carefully organize all our orders into batches.

Early birds will be delivered first, followed by other Kickstarter orders and post-campaign orders.

Any custom duties will be pass onto the backer.

Be aware that unexpected situations might occur, and be sure that we will do our best to fulfill our commitment.
