WINNATS ROLL TOP BACKPACK – THE LEVEL COLLECTIVE

£7,640

I started The Level Collective over 3 years ago, inspired by my love for travel and the outdoors and my frustration with the generic, unethical fast fashion industry. I collaborate with artists and makers from across the world to create ethical outdoor supplies.

A backpack is one of the most distinctive and personal pieces of apparel that you can own. You use it everyday, it travels everywhere with you, your trusty companion.

As someone who is creative and outdoorsy, it's always frustrated me that I couldn't find a day pack that performed well but looked great too.

Most backpacks seem to be either; technical bags that perform well, but are plasticky, look ugly and are cluttered with endless toggles and buckles, or they are fashion bags that have decent style but lack substance for the outdoors.

I wanted to create something made from natural fabrics that perform well against the elements, but also looks great in the wild or in the city.

Something minimalist, yet well equipped.

I wanted to create something that’s made ethically and that is hand crafted in the UK.

Something Beautifully Adventurous.

Now I need your help to bring my idea to life and make the first small run of the Winnats Roll Top backpack.

Back this pack!

Risks and challenges

I’ve been running The Level Collective for over 3 1/2 years now and have shipped our apparel to hundreds of customers in over 50 countries so I’m well accustomed to providing excellent customer service in fulfilling orders.

Although The Level Collective is a small independent brand, I'm partnering with an experienced British manufacturer who specialise in producing high performance bags and can make hundreds at their facilities here in the UK. If you back me, you can be sure that you'll receive your purchase and it will be finished to the highest standard.

We hope to deliver all rewards on schedule, but know there is always room for unexpected things to delay our schedule. We will keep all backers updated throughout the process.

Shipping costs suck! but we want to make sure that your new backpack arrives safely with you and you can track it all the way! So all of our rewards which include the Winnats Roll Top are sent via tracked courier delivery. This is obviously quite expensive and we don't make any profit on this, in fact sometimes we make a bit of a loss when posting some countries.

It’s been over 18 months of hard graft designing and creating the Winnats Roll Top and Peaks Utility Pack and I’m so pumped to get them out to you so you can enjoy adventuring in them!

Thanks for your support as we bring this beautifully adventurous idea to life!
