All packs are made with high quality, water-resistant, 1000D Polyester material and strong YKK zips and buckles.
The interior of the bags have useful pockets, compression straps and fun liners! The Rainforest and the Geometric Explorer have plain black liners to make them more attractive to both men and women.
The only difference in the features between the two sizes of bags is that the 65L pack comes with a zip on daypack, and has a lightweight frame to give it some structure.
As avid travel lovers, our lives revolve around all things travel. We have spent years searching high and low for exciting gear for our adventures, but to no avail. Over and over again we had to choose between travel gear that looked good OR was durable and functional. We aired our frustrations with friends and found they shared our want of better travel products. We noticed most packs were made for the primary purpose of hiking, not travelling. The result was ugly, top-loading bags, with straps hanging off everywhere that were less than ideal for travelling.
We thought “Surely travel products could be stylish, without compromising on functionality?... maybe we were going to have to be the ones to do it”
Thus the idea for Elephant Stripes began to grow….Two years, a fair bit of travel, many crazy moments and late nights later…Elephant Stripes has arrived with the perfect travel packs for stylish globe-trotters!!
The Bag for Bag donations programme is one of our favourite initiatives at Elephant Stripes. For every Travel Pack bought during this Kickstarter campaign we will give a school bag to an Indonesian child in need.
We've partnered with The Bali Children's Project; a wonderful not-for profit charity registered in both the United States and Indonesia. The Bali Children's Project sponsors Indonesian children to continue education where they would not otherwise be able to for financial reasons. It is based on the idea that if children are empowered with education, they are more likely to live a fulfilled life. The families they sponsor barely have money for food, let alone school supplies. The donated school bags will be a huge help for the families and something to treasure for the children!
At Elephant Stripes we believe in always doing the right thing. For us that means implementing better business practices where possible, and always striving to do better by people and planet.
You choose your preferred design in a survey after the campaign has finished.
We custom design and print all our fabrics. Both sizes come in the following six designs:
Our goal of NZ $15,000 will allow us to place the minimum order quantity required by our manufacturer. But we’re really hoping to raise more than that so we can get Elephant Stripes going on a sustainable basis and be able to design and launch more amazing travel products.
Firstly, you’re the best!! We are so appreciative of your support.

Watch below exactly how much the 45 Litre Carry-on Pack can fit!
Elephant Stripes started with two girls from New Zealand who love to travel. We were both lucky enough to grow up in the beautiful North Island of New Zealand, but always had a curiosity to explore what lay beyond our small country on the edge of the world. After meeting on our first day of university when we found out we were roommates, we quickly bonded over a passion for travel. Since then we’ve travelled extensively both together and separately to over 20 countries. The joy of traveling, the people you meet, the places you see and the experiences you have is simply unbeatable in our opinion and it seems once bitten by the travel bug you’ve got it for life!
Francesca is the logistics and legal mind of the company. Using her background in law and her practical nature she keeps things on track and steers the ship.
Jordan is the creative genius behind Elephant Stripes. Charismatic and full of ideas, this hippy at heart brings all the pieces together and keeps the brand inspiring!
Risks and challenges
With any new product launch there are always challenges, but we have worked very hard over the last 2 years to put all elements in place to ensure we produce and deliver your Elephant Stripes Travel Packs on time and to a high quality.
Date for shipping: We have been generous with the shipping date - we fully expect to beat this date! We would rather people be pleasantly surprised with their bag arriving early than disappointed in us because it is late!
Production: For the last 16 months, we’ve been working with this skilled and qualified manufacturer. They made our samples and other great gear shown on our website - so we know they can do it! All parties from our material printers, to our bag manufacturer to our zips and buckles supplier are ready to go!
Product adjustments: We are very happy with our current range, but we are also always trying to improve the products and we would happily take into account feedback and comments from the campaign and make minor adjustments to the bags for the benefit of our customers.
Customs: When shipping products all over the world, customs is one area that can be unpredictable and difficult to navigate. However, we are well-researched and have people in place to help us with our logistics, shipping and customs! We’ll try our absolute best to make sure your rewards don’t get held up at customs, but ultimately we cannot 100% guarantee you won’t experience delays or be charged import duties.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
