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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
Big enough for all your adventures | Small enough to fit in your pocket
In the summer of 2016, we set out on a 4-day hike into the Garabaldi's. With over 7,600ft of elevation, our gear had to be light, compact, durable and built with maximum utility to not weigh us down - we managed to get our packs down to 60lbs. The one thing that was missing was a backpack that we could take with us on our day trips out from basecamp. A backpack that would be large enough to carry our day trip gear, light enough to not weigh us down on the way up, yet durable enough to survive our rugged journey.
The Sea to Sky pack was born out of necessity. We designed the pack to be large enough to fit everything we needed, yet small and light enough to conserve space and weight. After going through dozens of prototypes and iterations, we finally created a bag we were happy to call our own.

Risks and challenges
For the past 9 months, our team has been working night and day to dial in the design, production, and logistics. Material and production lead times are within a few days of where we want them and the quality of the bags exceeding expectations. We have met with our manufacturers and partnered with third party quality control teams to ensure that we only send out the highest quality backpacks to you.
We understand and acknowledge that no project comes without risk and challenges. Despite our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with these events, we promise to communicate with full transparency to you, our backers, and work to resolve all issues in a timely manner.
