The World's Best Waterproof Daily Backpack | The Riviera

€202,731

1,927

Packed with over 23 Features

For Kickstarter backers only, each pledge includes:

Extremely Waterproof

All seams are laser cut and then welded with radio waves to resist up to a 100.000mm water column and achieve extreme waterproof standards.

Toss your bag around without a worry

The extra padded bottom is layered with high-density EVA foam to reach high shock absorbing standards.

Bury your laptop in the snow

The zip and stitch free main compartment gives you extra security against water immersion and protects your vulnerable belongings in severe weather conditions like a snowstorm.

Increase your size by 10L!

Our pack expands from 20L to 30L, to perfectly fit one day at the office or a weekend away. The length/volume is adjustable in just a few seconds:

Never show up to work with a sweaty back again  

A 3D Padded EVA back with laser cut finishing balances a comfortable, firm fit with good airflow for precise temperature control. Fast drying material dries in just seconds.

Custom Designed Riding Straps

Shoulder straps are ergonomically designed with 3D top grade EVA.Extra padding offers comfort in any situation while keeping 100% water repellency.

Maintain a minimalist look with our strap keepers, which tuck away any loose hanging parts.

Multi-Function Side Handles

Our side handles help separate wet materials from dry materials, but that's not quite the whole story--you can also use them to:

- Help while swimming long distances
- Hold your helmet before or after riding
- Offer extra storage capacity

Specific laser cut mesh holes with a waterproof coating allow air to ventilate between the shell and lining, offering the most comfortable drying system on the market.

Convenient Safety Whistle

 Quick Dry Air Holes

Book and Tablet Pocket

Easy to Use Organizer

Three Different Functional Closing Methods

 Close your backpack three different ways to suit your day:

Commute Mode gives you a compact, urban look that won't snag on doors or brush against people on the subway.
Float Mode is a water safe solution that gives an extra holding handle for swimming.
Discover Mode is for easy access and quick expansion from 20 to 30L.

Like the Riviera backpack, your included laptop case can also be closed multiple ways to suit the occasion.

By adding the sailing grade rope shoulder straps (included in each purchase), your laptop case will transform into a second backpack, becoming the flattest waterproof laptop case in the market.

The front grab handle allows the case to be used as a separate handbag.

Use it to hold your bike helmet, mobile holder or another clothing layer.

Internal pockets are extra padded and shock absorbing, functionally designed to separately hold your tablet, mobile, cables and more.

Flat front pocket offers small extra packing capacity. Available only for 15’’ screens or less.

The back hidden zippered pocket is perfect to hold passport and valuables.

Like the backpack and laptop holder, the included mobile case is high frequency welded, has a roll-up closure that fits any phone on the market, and offers easy access zippered pocket design to hold your ATM or credit cards.

The easy access zippered pocket is designed to hold your credit cards, cash, or receipts in a perfectly waterproof environment.

Our included back bracelet fixes the mobile case to any shoulder strap, side handles laptop case, or on your arm for your outdoor craziness.

"I have been using the Riviera backpack for months now as my daily backpack. I am testing the limits (some rather extreme, over the technical lab's tests) so you won’t have to. I will be able to detect any possible problems, including long-term wear and tear and make further improvements before you get your first pack."

- Jacopo Pennone, Co-Founder and Creator

Making MOW a reality has been two years in the making. We know our potential difficulties, and we have thoroughly prepared to minimize potential risks before they occur. Given our combined experience (Sergio's 15 years of research and development, Enrica 's14 years in quality control and auditing, Jacopo's 14 years developing and manufacturing clothing and accessories for USA-UE brands) we are beyond confident in our ability to bring this product to the market.

Risks and challenges

We are ready to mass produce. We strive to minimize and control all risks. However, it is impossible to plan for everything.

MOW promises you that we will do everything we can every step of the way to get you the highest quality product. The Riviera pack is our dream, and you can help make it a reality. Our team has been working hard and is ready to go.

As we, the production team, are already in the business we are prepared for any production scale. We have built in extra time to ensure a summer delivery with the highest quality product. In regards to our supply and production, we are leaving nothing to chance.

We spent long hours on site, designing, developing, and improving. We have produced many prototype backpacks and our most recent couldn’t have gone better!

By backing our project, you will make our vision a reality available to everyone.

Fear less and trust more, embracing your business without boundaries.
