The Everyday Adventure Bag - KP Sling

$199,629

Even though there are tons of bags on the market for “Everyday Carry” we didn’t feel there were any bags out there for “Everyday Adventure”. We wanted a bag that could hold all our modern day tech-essentials but also keep up with our active lifestyle. We wanted to create a bag that could be worn as comfortably skating down the boardwalk or riding your bike down massive hills as it could be walking to your local coffee shop.
                                                                                                                                                                                              

For most people with active lifestyles a backpack is the only option to carry your stuff. However when you're out all day at things like music festivals or hiking with friends, you necessarily don’t want to carry a massive backpack around as it becomes heavy after a few hours of use.

We wanted to make a bag that was so comfortable it could be worn all day, something that had great functionality but also minimal weight and impact. We created the KP Sling Bag to be extremely form fitting, so much so you might even forget you’re wearing it.

 Sling Demo Video

We sent a few prototypes to our favorite YouTube channels for them to review, and here is what they had to say about the KP Sling.

How many USB flash drives have you lost? With the new KP Paracord USB bracelet, you can keep your projects and files right on your wrist. With 32GB of storage and a 10 foot paracord rope, it’s the ultimate survival bracelet for either getting that project to your client or out on adventures.

Custom KP black carabiner which you can attach to the hook plate of the KP Sling Bag. Perfect for your keys or pocket tools. It also has a built-in bottle opener and hex driver.

Whether you're hanging upside down rock climbing or landing kickflips on your skateboard the optional waist strap keeps your KP Sling Bag in place making it the ultimate adventure bag!

The Secret Compartment

We've designed a passport sized secret compartment somewhere in the Sling to store your important belongings. This compartment is so hidden that it's virtually invisible. We can’t tell you where this pocket is located, because then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore. You’ll have to really look for it to find it when you receive your Sling.

Sling’s exterior fabric is treated with durable water repellent (DWR) finish, which makes Sling water-resistant and stain-resistant.

 Final prototype sketch

Minimum Order Quantity: In-order to produce the KP Sling Bag with a quality manufacturer who has experience with major brands, we need to give them a production order large enough so that they are willing to produce the bag and at a cost which will make it affordable for most consumers.

Tooling: Some of the components including custom hardware require an investment in tooling for volume production.

KEEP PURSUING is a small design start-up based in Los Angeles, CA. Our motto is "Outfitters of the Modern Adventurer" as we strive to create quality bags and gear specifically designed for people who live, work and play in urban environments. We truly love what we do and put that passion into every project/product.

Risks and challenges

If the KP Sling Bag is successfully funded we are extremely confident we will be able to produce the bag and have it to backers by this Fall – 2015. All parties involved from material wholesalers, manufacturing company, etc. are ready to go. The funds raised are going directly into the production/manufacturing of the bag. Though we do not see any direct risks, there is always unforeseen circumstances that may present themselves during production. However it is our #1 goal to get you a quality bag you are excited about, and we will do all in our power to make that happen.
