// VERSION FRANÇAISE EN BAS DE PAGE //

Why choose between a briefcase and a hiking bag when you can have both? We have conceptualized a bag that reconciles our urban life with our love of the great outdoors. 
 

The Out Of Town idea started with a simple fact : our days are made of many defining moments, and the frontier between ones weekday and weekend life is blurred. If you’re a freelance photographer, lunchbreak athlete, daily rider, or compulsive weekender, you know what we’re talking about. 

We have designed a bag that’s adapted for any situation thanks to its versatile features and seamless aesthetic. We called it the “Friday Bag”, because Friday is the day that best embodies this link between work and freetime. 

  • Multiples features adapted for modern uses : Your laptop, passport, and camera will fit easily and safely, along with your spare outfit.
  • Minimalist aesthetic : Its uncluttered design is suited to any situation, and outlasts fashion trends. 
  • Quality produt : Our locally sourced fabric comes from a small French family-owned company. The bag was designed in Paris by Karen, our awesome lead designer. The prototypes were also developed in a Parisian workshop, by Caroline, a talented leather craftsman.

  > The carabiner / security strap

The carabiner is the perfect solution for you to get your camera still and ready to shoot.

    > The "Panic Room"

  • We have created a waterproof pocket as a way to protect your small valuables at all times, be it your cellphone, wallet, or passport. It’s also easily accessible for when you need them quickly. The zip and the yellow backing fabric are waterproof.

    > The padded laptop pocket

    Our padded laptop pocket is designed to fit a standard 13” or 15" Macbook Pro. Any other laptops this size will fit in (33cmx23cmx3cm)

    > Snap-fold top

    As your bag is going to follow you through any and all kinds of situation, we wanted it to be ajustable in volume, depending on what you need to carry.

     >  When will I be able to choose the color of my Friday Bag ?
    When you pledge, you will not be asked to choose between green and black. No worries, this comes when we have reached our goal. You will be asked to fill in a survey in order to get the exact bag you desire.

    Parce qu'entre l'attaché-case et le sac de randonnée nous ne choisissons aucun des deux, nous avons créé un sac qui puisse coordonner une schizophrénie d'urbains convaincus, amoureux du grand air.

    Le sac Out Of Town part d'un constat simple : nos journées et nos vies sont multiples, et la frontière entre la vie professionnelle et les loisirs est parfois abstraite. Photographe freelance, sportif de la pause dej, deux-roues addict, ou week-ender compulsif, tu le sais déjà.

    L'idée est donc de créer un sac qui puisse s'adapter à ces situations, tant grâce à la polyvalence de ses usages que grâce à son esthétisme. Nous avons nommé ce sac le "Friday bag" car le vendredi est ce qui symbolise le mieux cette passerelle familière entre le travail et les loisirs.

    • Des fonctionnalités adaptées à des usages modernes et variés : Un ordinateur portable, un passeport et un appareil photo doivent pouvoir côtoyer, avec aisance et sécurité, une tenue de rechange. 
    • Une esthétique épurée : Le design minimaliste du sac offre une élégance appropriée à différents espaces, difficilement fragilisée dans le temps par les mouvements de mode. 
    • Un produit de qualité : Le tissu utilisé pour la confection du Friday bag est issu d'un atelier français. Le sac a été dessiné à Paris avec l'aide de Karen V., notre super designer. Les prototypes ont été développés dans un atelier du XIIe arrondissement parisien par Caroline B., maroquinière.
    // Information importante : Lorsque vous décider de participer, vous n'allez pas immédiatement choisir la couleur du sac que vous souhaitez avoir. Nous vous demanderons cette information une fois la campagne réussie, de sorte que chacun reçoive le sac dans la couleur qu'il préfère.

Risks and challenges

Since we have already done the development, you’re guaarenteed to get the product quickly. The patterns are ready, fabric is sourced, and we can’t wait to give our factories the go ahead. As a way to prevent any delay for delivery due to higher demand, we have decided to limit the number of bags available. We think we should grow step by step : This experience should be a way to prove that our product is ready to hit the market, but also that our manufacturing process and production logistics are solid. We are ready to produce and deliver your Friday Bag as soon as possible. Join us. Tell your friends. Help us launch OOT backpacks
