The World's First Convertible and Customizable Carry Bags

$154,373

Choose Your Adventure. Choose Your Style. All you have to do is FOLD or SWITCH. It’s that simple. 

If you’re like us, you take your life with you when you leave the house. But, most days, you don’t need a full-sized, bulky backpack. URBANATURE by NIID has created the FOLD and SWITCH bags that complement each other and work together to simplify your life. They’re convertible and customizable bags that can be added together, expanded, or used singularly for everyday wear. We like to think of these bags as choose-your-own-adventure packs. You get to determine the storage capacity and style. All you have to do is fold or switch. It’s that simple.

How To Get Them  

By becoming a backer and picking a reward, you will essentially be pre-ordering one of these bags, backing this project not only gets you a special discount, you'll receive the bags before they're available in stores. Want to buy more than one? Check out Rewards & Add-ons.

We have no traditional investors. Instead, we launch products here on Kickstarter. The funds we raise not only go towards manufacturing, they also help us design future products.

Rewards & Add-ons

PRODUCT WARRANTY 

Here at NIID, we stand behind our products. If you are not 100% satisfied with the quality simply send it back and we will refund you, no questions asked. 

Production

Our Previous Design 

For us, looking back at where we started, and where we ended up is always enjoyable. We started this particular journey with an idea and knew generally where we wanted to go. But the final products evolved and expanded, in great part due to feedback from our wonderful customers. We owe a great deal of our design to you and always welcome new ideas for the next product.

Hooray! The winner from sharing our pre-campaign Is "Roman Rackwitz". Please contact our staff and get your reward.

 

Risks and challenges

Timing is always a challenge with production of a new product.
However, we are working with top-notch suppliers and we have padded our timeline to make sure we can hit the time frames we have laid out.

Also our QA team is in place to personally check every shipment that will go out to make sure all backers receive the product without any defaults.

The challenge therefore will not be the production side, but mostly the fulfillment side. We now have a good margin in our delivery times, and hope to deliver all the backpacks even before the deadline mentioned on this page.
