Remember the days when all you needed was one solid piece of equipment to cover all the different situations you might come across? Nowadays for some reason it has become the standard to have a variety of backpacks, one for every activity you do. The Tallac Pak recognizes this unnecessary abundance of specialized backpacks, and eliminates the competition by being the ultimate day pack for anyone’s daily life or adventure.

Check out our stop motion videos featured below and see just how versatile The Tallac Pak truly is!

The Tallac Pak is designed with functionality and durability as it’s main focus. This backpack is a one of a kind self-containing multi-use pack that compresses into it’s own stuff sack for times when it’s not in use. Originally created as a day or summit backpack, the self-containing stuff sack feature is key for those who understand the importance of saving space while backpacking or traveling on their adventures, wherever that may be. When needed, simply deploy the backpack from its stuff sack and you have a full sized 25-28 liter backpack ready to go. Produced with an inner notebook or laptop pocket, this backpack is perfect for a school bag, any outing around town or your next outdoor endeavor.

To take this backpack to the next level, The Tallac Pak has been designed with innovative H2O pockets that offer a double functionality. Made with storage capacity in mind, these multi-use H2O pockets transform from H20 pockets to compression straps allowing you to choose what gear you would like to carry. Perfect for strapping in a yoga mat, sleeping pad, towel, extra layer for warmth, hiking poles, camera trip-pod or any gear of your choice. These bad boys give you the option of what gear to carry for the adventure at hand. Dependent on your choice of material, the H2O pockets are crafted with high quality parachute material, water resistant rip-stop nylon or hand loomed Ikat on outside of the pocket and non-stretch mesh on the inner side. This unlike many backpacks on the market, protects the mesh used for the H2O pockets from getting caught on sharp objects or snags while hiking or journeying through your day. We made sure to make these H2O pockets over-sized to accommodate for all water bottle sizes, and yes it fits wider water bottles on the market like Nalgene’s.

 Next, the Tallac Pak is equipped with two webbing hammer/gear loops to allow for extra storage space. With optional carabiners, these loops are perfect to hook on your climbing shoes and chalk bag, your sandals, your body board fins or any extra gear you may need for your day out and about. Also armed with a webbing waist belt, this pack stays sturdy on your back even when you pick up the pace.

 With comfort in the forefront of the design process, we have crafted unique shoulder straps that are one continuous piece of material that sits smoothly on your back for comfort and cause no irritations while on the go. These shoulder straps are reinforced with webbing stitching that allows us to weight rate this compactable backpack comfortably at 25 lbs. We have also placed a webbing hand carrying loop on The Tallac Pak for easy transport while not on your back. Lastly, the Bakpocket team prides themselves on the quality and strength of our products, with this said, The Tallac Pak is crafted with high quality over locking YKK zippers and buckles to ensure your new backpack will last for years to come.

We hope you enjoy the trail ahead with your new Bakpocket Tallac Pak wherever your adventurers may take you!

The Bakpocket Team has decided to offer The Tallac Pak in three different materials. We chose to give these options as each material has its own benefit and purpose, which may suit each adventurer differently on their daily journeys.

100% Parachute Material:

 Parachute material is a highly strong material that is lightweight and compresses very small to suit the needs of this backpack. Its strength combined with its size compatibility is unmatched and for this reason, we have chosen parachute material to be apart of the Tallac Pak backpack line. Parachute is a highly breathable material that allows air to flow through the material, giving it a resistance to mildew and mold cultivation while on the trail. However, with this feature, this material is not water proof by any means, yet when is becomes wet it dries very quickly. This material is more for the fair weather hiker or traveler who doesn’t often venture out when the weather is wet. A great benefit of parachute material is that it is machine washable and dries within minutes.

Water Resistant Rip-Stop Nylon Material:

Water Resistant Rip-Stop Nylon is an excellent material that is also lightweight and compresses extremely small. The name says it all. This material is water resistant and acts to keep the contents within your pack dry. This material is perfect for your everyday adventurers and also for those whom like to push the boundaries and venture out into the storm. With Rip-Stop checkering within the material, this nylon is exceptionally strong and if for some reason you do manage to put a hole or tear in it, the hole or tear will stop at its point of origin and will not spread any larger. With all this said, this material is not breathable like parachute and cannot be machine-washed as to keep its water resistant integrity. All in all, this material is suitable for any occasion especially if it’s wet out.

 Handmade Ikat Material:

Ikat material is a hand crafted loomed material with unique patterns. Each backpack is truly one of a kind as the patterns within the material is made by hand and always changes. We have chosen this material not only because it is aesthetically pleasing, but because it is made in local villages in Indonesia where we produce our goods. By supporting the trade and creation of this handmade Ikat, we are helping do our part to support the locals and keep ancient practice of hand looming materials alive. The Bakpocket Team prides themselves in producing in a beautiful area in this world, which has a rich and amazing culture that has not been consumed by oversized factories, pollution and greed for consumerism. We believe quality of life and the beauty that surrounds you makes a huge impact not only on ones happiness but their creative drive. For these reasons we have chosen beautiful Indonesia for the doorstep to produce and create our designs. Plus, its hard to beat being able to work and adventure in the same place at the same time. Ikat material is hand washable and holds an exceptional strength. This is a great choice of material for your Tallac Pak for its looks, strength and what it stands for.

The team here has decided to give you the option to pledge $8.00 more to any reward package to receive a set (two carabiners) of climbing/rescue grade carabiners. These carabiners are perfect to hang off the webbing hammer/gear loops on your new Tallac Pak. With the addition of a set of carabiners, The Tallac Pak is truly ready for any situation. Use them to hook on extra gear while trekking about on your daily adventurers and have a piece of mind that if a rescue or emergency situation does arrive you have a crucial tool ready to help. Carabiners in this light are perfect to create many types of pulleys. They can be used to hold exceptional weights and can even be used to help belay a person if needed. It’s nice to know you have the little things with you just in case. With that said, hopefully you will never have to use these in any rescue or emergency situation.

The carabiners we offer are a special edition wire gate Bakpocket Products carabiner. They are made from aluminum alloy and have an anodized finish to prevent rust formation. These carabiners weight 25 grams each and have a breaking strength of 22kN on the major axis, 7kN on the minor axis and 7kN on the wire gate opening. To put this in perspective 1kN is equal to 224.8 lbs.

Approaching our second full year as a business, Bakpocket Products is showing no signs of slowing down. As promised we took the earnings from our previous project, upgraded designs and developed new gear! With the support of our backers we have been able to grow in leaps and bounds as individuals, as well as a company. The release of the Tallac Pak is a testament to our determination to continue to progress at every given opportunity. By supporting us you will further feed the fire, which is the Bakpocket Teams goal to spread the ever important love for our beautiful planet and all the amazing things it has to offer.

Your funding and support is what gives life to Bakpocket Products. With the money earned from this Kickstarter we will not only be able to launch the Tallac Pak, but also design and create many more products to keep the motion of Bakpocket Products flowing.

If this project is successfully funded, the Bakpocket team’s first priority and goal is to work as quickly as possibly to get you your gear by late spring or early summer, just in time for perfect hiking, camping and backpacking weather. With this said, we can make no promises on a definitive delivery date as it cannot be predicted how many pledges we will receive. Our goal is to start sending out packages in early June and aim to have finished this process by the end of July. In the long term after the Kickstarter campaign is finished, the team is looking toward spreading our goods throughout the USA and internationally. As usual with the Bakpocket Team, our creative juices never stop flowing. We will continue to design, test, and release new products that always keep functionality, sustainability and practicality in our daily lives in mind.

The Bakpocket Team

Bakpocket Products is a fairly new start up company, in just two years now, we have taken leaps and bounds to explode onto the market with over twenty different unique designs. Ranging from our diverse hammock line to backpacks, eco-friendly shopping bags, shoulder bags, fishing pole cases, fanny packs, yoga bags and of course hammock accessories. We have worked extremely hard to craft products to cater to all walks of life. You currently can find our goods in a variety of stores ranging from local organic food markets, camping and outdoor stores, surf & skate shops and even mainstream grocery stores. Our aim as a company is to supply a large scope of clientele with products that have functionality and style in mind.

As an environmentally friendly company, we also understand what it takes to preserve this beautiful planet that we are lucky enough to inhabit. With this said, through our eco-line, we are currently taking steps to reduce our own carbon footprint and in the future we plan to establish a product recycling system to reuse worn materials. As a whole, the Bakpocket Teams main mission as a company and as individuals is to share and connect people from all corners of the world with the beauty of nature and in turn help to save, preserve and rebuild our natural environment.

Risks and challenges

The Bakpocket Team would like, at this point, to outline any risks and challenges involved with this current Kickstarter campaign. First off, we would like to inform you that we have been in business for over two full years and have a very established production facility. At this current time, we have successfully created and marketed over twenty different products that we now sell in stores throughout California. We have been through the Kickstarter process once before and were successfully funded for the release of our Adventurers Hammock. With all this said, there are always risks and challenges when creating and marketing a new product. However the team is very confident with the final design of The Tallac Pak. We would like to ensure you that the pack has been thoroughly tested and is fully ready to be released to the public. The amount of pledgers we receive, which cannot be foreseen, will depict how long the production process will take. We will continually work our hardest to get your gear to you in a timely manor. But our first and foremost priority is to craft a quality product that reflects the time and care put into the designing process. The team here at Bakpocket is fully confident in our campaign and knows if any issues, set backs or troubles do arise in any form, that there is always a solution and a way to better ourselves through the process.
