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.

Every cover bag can be zipped onto the main bag or carried on its own for lighter days.

Introducing a better way to carry and commute. Swap, switch, merge and combine for maximum flexibility.

Go hiking, cycling, shopping, to work, the gym or on a travel adventure with your back’s new bff.

7-in-1 is a convertible backpack with an interchangeable bag component that offers versatility like no other. Whether you go hiking, cycling, shopping, traveling, to work, the gym, or on an adventure, each backpack design has a different purpose.

Fast Zip with YKK zippers can easily combine the base and cover bags into one backpack. The add-on cover bags are also detachable, meaning you can take the base and zip different covers on it or remove the covers and use them individually as well.

Choose your design depending on how you’re feeling or what you need for the day. If you’re going to work, keep it professional with a simple, but sleek black and grey Business bag. If you’re matching an outfit and want a sexier look, opt for the City bag with its iconic pattern, texture and shape. 

All of 7-in-1’s unique bags have a timeless style and color combinations for accents that you can’t find anywhere else.    

Say goodbye to back pain and neck discomfort. Let 7-in-1 take the weight off your shoulders.

Minimize the pull against your back and shoulders with every step.

7-in-1’s load-supporting system relieves stress from your shoulders and back for improved posture and less strain. When you walk or run, the elastic shoulder straps will bounce as a reaction and reduce the force of gravity on your body.

This shock-absorbing super power reduces weight by 15% making the elastic shoulder straps the ultimate remedy during & after all day wear. 

S-Shaped shoulder straps with think soft spongy rubber muti-layer foam can disperse the weight of backpack more evenly and reduce pressure on shoulders effectively.

Most backpacks are not only uncomfortable after long periods of time, but also HOT. Stop walking into the office sweaty. Keep your back cool with the breathable & ergonomic back padding. It’s strategic Z-Shaped back pad enhances air permeability so you get more ventilation when you’re on the go. This back pad is so comfortable you’ll feel like you’re laying in bed, but also supportive enough to stabilize and ensure even distribution of weight, even with your heavy laptop!    

 Detach the cover bags and enjoy wearing new patterns and colors everyday.

               

Don’t be tied to a wall outlet. Charge your mobile devices on the go.

 Conveniently plug and go.

These days we bring our devices everywhere, and there are few things worse than a low or dead phone battery when you’re out and about. Stop living outlet to outlet and stay powered all day long. 

7-in-1’s external Type A USB port offers offers a convenient way to recharge your devices. The port is located on the side of the base bag so you can easily connect your power bank via the cable and be off doing what you do best.

Arrive to your final destination with your devices fully charged.

7-in-1’s solar power bank has a 15000mAh battery and is waterproof (IP65) for a new and improved on the go charging experience. There are 2 buttons, 2 high power LED, 5 low power indication LEDs (one for showing the battery is charging by solar power, 4 for showing battery level) and a solar panel. 

It has 2 USB type A output sockets and a micro USB socket for charging up the power bank itself. It can still be used on a cloudy day and can charge your iPhone 6+ up to 5 times!

Worry less about your belongings when you’re outdoors or traveling. Stay safe and keep everything organized.

Your Personal Safe - Enjoy the peace of mind knowing your personal belongings are secure.

The anti-theft compartment is located at the back bottom of the bag so your valuables are safe. The pocket pattern inside came from the structure of a wallet. 

The idea is to let you easily store credit cards, banknotes, business cards, receipts and your passport. Perfect for your next international trip or another weekend away in a new city.

Storage Made smarter - Keep your valuables organized and never run out of space.

The laptop sleeves of main bag can fit up to 15.6" & 17" laptops. The cover bags fit up to 15.6" labtops. 

Avoid misplacing your keys and phone every time you unzip your bag. Inner pockets and zippers give you convenient access to everything in your backpack and keeps them organized.

The laptop sleeve hugs your laptop so your work commute is super efficient with zero excess weight bouncing around in the back.

The hiking bag even has a hydration reservoir to keep your favorite water bottle cool and near you at all times when you’re on an adventure.

Will any other colors be offered? You can select the City bag in all black or black and white. At this time, we don’t have color options for the other backpacks.

What is the warranty? We provide a 1 year warranty which does not include normal wear & tear or damages.

Is it easy to zip up? The YKK zippers are tough and smooth. We’ve tested it hundreds of times. Please check out our videos and GIFs for reference!

How much weight is reduced? The elastic shoulder straps reduce around 15% of the total backpack load.

How can I get in touch if I’m a distributor, retailer or dealer? We are pleased to cooperate with anyone who would like to sell our backpack! Please email us at hello@i-futurebackpack.com.

Can we vote on the features? Definitely! We welcome and take our backers’ suggestions into consideration before placing the order to our manufacturer. Feel free to comment on the page or email us at hello@i-futurebackpack.com.

Risks and challenges

Like any startup, there are challenges. The good news is, we have cooperated with the same factory for 2 years and the production of our backpack doesn’t need any advanced technology. We are confident in delivering on time because we have finalized our product and we are excited to share it with you via crowdfunding.

We also have six years experience in running online Ebay and Alibaba shops, so we know the delivery & distribution process throughout Europe, USA and Australia.
