Our Story  

 Next Innovation is a lifestyle and water sport hardware company created in 2015. We are water sports enthusiasts ourselves, which means we made sure every possible useful feature a backpack could have is included.  

 We noticed that, in a professional SUP boards competition, life jackets are always required by law. While lifejackets are always the best, you can't wear them everywhere and a lot of people don't use them while in the outdoors kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or just out on the water having fun. We wanted to make a backpack that would be an alternative so people can still live the adventure but with less risk.  

 Motivated to create a product that would empower people to embrace life worry-free, we designed the Next Innovation backpack to be an inflatable flotation device. Our backers will also have everything they need safely secured inside, and they look good at the same time.  

 The WHO reported that 372,000 people drown worldwide each year, which is 7% of all injury related deaths. Wanting to help, we created the Next Innovation backpack, and we will donate $1 to Red Cross Hurricane Relief each backpack we sell.  

Please note that according to Kickstarter rules, we are not allowed to use projects fundraise for charity. We will certainly support our beneficiary orgs outside of Kickstarter and share all the information with our backer community.  

In The Future  

The backpack X-in-1 set Zip Pack Go.  

X-in-1? The possibilities of Next Innovation are infinite.  

There are more color options and functions on the way that will be added to the life changing appeal of this backpack like internal removable organization, perfect for storing photograph gear, small travel items, or other things. Backers will also be able to customize the different internal organization.

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that arise when trying to bring a product to life. We are working on upgrading the waterproof material to be more durable and look fashionable at the same time. And we are also adding more functions and developing different removable parts to make the bag more customizable and incomparable before shipment.

Timing is always a challenge for developing of the new functions. However, we can confidently say that we are expert in the productive process, also have developed systems and processes to mitigate the risks and obstacles that will arise. We will work hard to ensure that we deliver what we promise and to go the extra mile whenever it is possible.

Thanks for believing in us!
