Witness of a bicycle accident as riders were carrying bags and folding chairs over their shoulders, a chair slid down the arm of rider pulling her into other bicyclists. I thought there must be a way to combine a backpack and chair to be safe, unobstructed while mobile.
From PVC pipe with towel, to copper and finally high grade aluminum with canvas backpack. 5 prototypes finally achieved perfection!
The clam shell frame design proved to be the most useful as gravity helps open the chair (consumer grade version in the camouflage version).

Risks and challenges
We started working our suppliers over a year ago rigorously testing their production capabilities, while meticulously testing Chair-Pak samples through several alpha and beta tests. We've been extremely fortunate to have positive results.
However, bringing a product to market has its challenges. Depending upon demand our delivery dates are at the mercy of unforeseen manufacturing issues and sometimes things out of our control, like natural disasters, potential power outages, nuclear war, etc. However, we’ve assembled a world-class team of manufacturing experts to keep everything on track, and we are confident we can reach our quality goals and deadlines.
Here are some potential risks we will be vetting:
Product fine tuning - As Chair-Pak gets geared up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. These will always be for the benefit of you, the consumer, and we will let you know exactly how and why any are made.
Manufacturing adjustments - Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds for a product of this size and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we're working with tooling manufacturers partners with a track record for prompt quality.
Fulfillment - Sometimes a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of manufacturing setbacks we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least one back-up supplier for each component pre-located and my product commercialization experts will help ensure smooth sailing from our suppliers and factories.
We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you, our Chair-Pak customer.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the Chair-Pak idea a reality for you by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
