Be Seen, Be Safe: The Reflective Bag and Backpack.
Reflective Notabag is a smart combination of a bag and backpack, made with reflective material for high visibility at night.
Due to unpredicted circumstances, we had to cancel our campaign. However, you can order the Reflective Notabag on our online shop.
INTRODUCING THE NEW REFLECTIVE NOTABAG
The Reflective Notabag is a clever combination of a bag and a backpack made from high visibility reflective material. Just like the original Notabag, it quickly transforms from a bag to a backpack with a pull on the straps.
The Reflective Notabag adds extra safety on the street by making cyclists, pedestrians, skaters, or pretty much anyone carrying it visible at night.
In late 2015 we teamed up with the Swedish bike accessory brand BOOKMAN to create the initial limited edition of Reflective Notabag. It was a great success, but a lot of the feedback revolved around adding more color to the reflective combination. That is why we decided to take it for a spin and adjust the design to incorporate more color, without sacrificing the visibility.
REFLECTIVE NOTABAG IS AVAILABLE IN THREE COLORS
- Size: 45cm x 65cm
- Top back side and straps made out of high-visibility reflective material
- Pouch size: 13cm x 15.5cm
- Cotton & rip–stop polyester mix
- Reusable / Eco-Friendly
EVERYTHING STARTED HERE ON KICKSTARTER
In 2013 you helped us launch Notabag, the smart combination of a bag and a backpack. It was a brand new product on the market, which didn’t exist yet.
Notabag founder Adnan Alicusic was inspired to create Notabag during a real life challenge, where a shopping bag on his bike’s handle bar almost led to fatal situation in a city traffic. He found himself stuck between the cars during the busy traffic and the shopping bag made the situation worse by limiting his ability to manoeuvre the bike.
Wishing the he had a backpack with him, Adnan started to visualise a simplified solution to transform a bag into a backpack.

Risks and challenges
We have successfully completed our first Kickstarter campaign in 2013, without having any experience in large-scale production. In the last 3 years we have gained the necessary experience on how to manage large production and plan things accordingly.
We have also built a strong relationship with our manufacturing partner and can rely that the products will be delivered up to our standards. Delays in manufacturing is always a possibility due to circumstances that cannot be controlled by us. However in case of such an event, you can be assured that we will communicate it with you instantaneously.
We are also working with a very reliable fulfilment team and we rely on them daily, which makes us confident that the fulfilment can be handled without any major delays. Of course there are again situations that cannot be controlled, especially when it comes deliveries outside of EU due to the possibility of customs inspections. Since Notabag is not a problematic product for the customs, the inspections should not be complex, but it might delay the delivery a bit.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
