The Shift Pack
The Shift Pack was designed with one goal in mind, to be an ultra-versatile backpack that can instantly ‘shift’ from a professional photography bag, to a travel bag, to an everyday tech bag. The Shift Pack offers the ultimate one bag experience.
Born On Kickstarter
This is not our first rodeo. Last year, we successfully launched an everyday bag called the 7ven Messenger right here on Kickstarter. We received amazing feedback from our backers and have improved every segment of the business to keep bringing you awesome, high quality gear.
DJI Drone Storage
The padded bottom compartment was specifically made to hold the DJI Mavic Pro and Spark drone. Now you can take them anywhere you go.
More Camera Storage Options
If you are a casual photographer, the drone compartment is big enough for a full size camera body and one camera lens. If you need to carry more camera gear upgrade to the full photography experience using our removable CAMERA KIT SYSTEM (available for order after campaign).
The Shift Pack was designed to provide versatility to the photographer. It features a removable magnetic tripod strap system for securing your tripod (available for order after the campaign).
The multi-purpose drone/camera compartment is FULLY PADDED for protection against accidental drops and bumps.
Not a Regular Camera Bag
When you are travelling with your expensive camera gear you want to be discrete about it. This is why Shift Pack wasn't designed to look like a regular camera bag.
The Shift Pack comes with features designed to make your travel effortless and fun.
Adaptable Storage Space
The Shift Pack uses a unique transformable storage space that can divide the backpack's main compartment in two sections when needed. Now you can store your clean clothes and dirty laundry separately.
Expandable Storage Space
Go from 20 L to 35 L in a matter of seconds.
The main compartment can be accessible from the top, back and bottom of the bag.
Reduce Fatigue and Back Pain
Keeps your body tight against your back and transfers most of the load to your hips and legs. This helps to reduce fatigue on your shoulders and back during extended use.
Designed for All Body Heights and Sizes
Hidden passport and cash pocket.
Esy-slide Luggage Sleeve
Lockable YKK Zippers
Waterproof YKK Zippers
Quick Access Pockets
Pillow and Headphone Holder
The patent pending dual use travel pillow and headphone holder makes airplane boarding more convenient.
Compartment for Dirty Clothes/Shoes
Rubberised fabric in the bottom compartment to prevent smell and moisture transfer between compartments. Keep your clean clothes smelling fresh for longer during travel.
Free Standing Design
The Shift Pack's flat bottom is designed to stand upright.
Integrated Strap Management
Integrated strap management for a safer riding experience.
Designed to Last
Equipped with a unique LOAD BRIDGE SYSTEM to distribute the carry load across both straps, so your strap won't rip even it is fully loaded.
Pockets for Tech Gear
Carry up to 6 laptops
Card/Key Quick Access Pockets
Dedicated Cable Storage
Modular Tactical Pouch
COOLER FOR SUMMER
Made to carry all your essentials (phone, camera, passport, wallet, keys, etc). It can easily fit your DJI Mavic or Spark drone in the main compartment.
This is why we created the Go Sling: a small sling bag that is designed to hold all your travel essentials in a light, sleek, and secure way.
When we designed the Go Sling, we imagined it as a travel sling bag that will go everywhere with you. With this in mind, we created the Go Sling to be modular with a removable and reversible strap (for both left and right-hand use), so that it will fit perfectly inside the Shift Pack. We also added a flexible and quick adjusting shoulder strap, which allows you to have several wearing styles for maximum comfort and security.
Born right here on Kickstarter. Our name was inspired by the South American animal alpaca. It roams in the toughest conditions in the Andes and represents the idea of perseverance and the 'keep moving forward' mentality.
Our vision is to solve problems by integrating a progressive style, ergonomic design and technical fabrics in the most sustainable way we can.
Every design we make comes from our idea of what beautiful aesthetic and great functionality should be.
Our products are hand-crafted and they are inspired by the multi-faceted lives of modern times. Minimal and made for urban life, but also durable and versatile for short nature trips.

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter campaign and we've learned some very valuable lessons along the way. We feel confident we will be able to produce the bag and have it shipped to backers by February – 2018. We have the full support of the manufacturer and all parties involved are set and ready to go.
The funds raised are going directly into the production/manufacturing of the bag. Even though we do not see any direct risks, there are always unforeseen circumstances that may present themselves during production and fulfilment. If this were to occur, we will always be 100% transparent with you and communicate this to you right away. Our goal is to get you an awesome, high-quality bag you are excited about, and we will do everything we possibly can to make that happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
