Manufacturing Update #1

Hello Backers,

We are back with our long pending update.

First of all thank you so much for your love and support. It’s because of you that we are able to work on this exciting journey of bringing BauBax 2.0 jackets to life.

Our operations team have had their heads down for the last 2 months and we are very proud of them to have managed the execution of such a huge project by coordinating with 18 different factories.

In today's update we'll be addressing the 3 most frequently asked questions:

1. Final Project Timeline

April 2nd: Our operations team reached China and started with the pre-production work

April 15th: Kickstarter campaign ended: Our project became the #1 fashion Kickstarter project of all time - Again, Thanks to you all! :)

May 1st: We received the funding amount from Kickstarter along with the final list of backers (excluding the dropped pledges)

May 2nd: We sent out all the surveys to final backers via BackerKit. We still have 2,325 backers who haven't yet responded to the surveys. Please do that ASAP to avoid any delays in shipping.

May 3rd: We wired money to all the factories - we are working with 18 different factories on this project: 9 for accessories, 2 for trims, 2 textile mills for fabric manufacturing, 4 garment manufacturing factories, one for each style of our jackets, and 1 for packaging

May 5th: Manufacturing started - for all the accessories, trims, and fabrics (lead time - 45 days). See photos attached below.

May 25th: Final fitting session: Our operations team got back from China with the pre-production samples and we had them tested on fit models of different body sizes.

June 25th: All the accessories, trims, and fabrics will reach the 3 garment factories (Original date was June 19th - delay of 1 week)

June 30th: Garment factories will ship us final samples from the production lines (of all the sizes) made with the final fabrics, trims and accessories.

July 1st - 31st: The first batch of production will be completed by end of July and after QC (2-3 days) those jackets will be shipped to our 3PL fulfillment centers in United States, Canada, Netherlands (EU), Australia.

August 1st - 15th: The second batch of production will be completed by mid of August and after QC (2-3 days) those jackets will by shipped to our 3PL fulfillment centers in Hong Kong, Singapore, and China (due to their close proximity to our factories we've decided to ship the second batch of production to these 3 fulfillment centers)

August 3rd week: Both batches of jackets, will reach the intended fulfillment centers, will be inwarded, labelled and prepared for shipping

August 4th week: Both batches of jackets will start getting shipped out from all 7 fulfillment centers. Please note, all the shipments intended for countries/regions, apart from the 7 listed above (Rest of the world), will be shipped out from our Hong Kong fulfillment center.

September 1st and 2nd week: All the Jackets will get delivered

3. Can I change my Shipping address?

Yes, you can. In case you’ll be traveling during the first 2 weeks of September, or for whatever reason you would like to have your shipping address changed, you can do that easily on BackerKit, until we lock the addresses. We plan on doing that sometime around end of August.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused due to a delay of 1 week in the estimated shipping date. We’ve made the BauBax 2.0 Jackets with a lot of love and attention to details. We can’t wait to have them delivered to you. We hope to see them become your #1 must-have item for all your future travels!

Best,

Team BauBax 2.0

      Hi Carolyn...If you read the update dated October 1st, we have the updated shipping timeline posted there. We started shipping within the US on this past Monday. You will receive your shipping confirmation email with the tracking number within the next two and half weeks. It will take a full three weeks to ship to all US backers. Thank you!

      Waiting, patiently, and looking forward to information regarding updated timeline. Looking to travel over holidays; will it be distributed by then? Perhaps I should be more specific: will the goods be delivered to homes by December 22, 2018? Thank you.

      Hi David, The jackets are currently in transit and being sent in batches to our distributors. We are gathering the shipping timeline from our distributors and will share that as soon as we have it. The next update is expected to be posted in a couple of days. Thank you!!

      Been following the comments patiently. Seems we have been promised an updated timeline for delivery for some time now (over a month). I think many of us would really welcome some firmer information on delivery dates.

    7. Suzanne on

      Hi Marya...We are still working on updating the estimated timeline. Those details will be released soon.

    8. Suzanne on

      Hi Constanza...The jackets have not been shipped. There was a delay that was touched on in the update dated August 20, 2018. Our operations team is working on updating the estimated shipping timeline. That information will be posted in a new update shortly.

    9. marya triandafellos on

      Hi, would love an update with new estimated ship time. Thanks.

    10. Constanza María Barbera Ullrich on

      Hi! Is there any way to know if my jacket has been sent already? Any tracking number? Please let me know. I'm traveling on oct 5th and I would love to habe it with me for that. Thanks!

    11. Suzanne on

      Hi Steven Yoo... Our operations team is working with the distributor to update the estimated shipping timeline. I see that you chose a bomber. That style will ship last as it was the last to finish manufacturing and shipped to the distributor. An new update will be posted when more details are known. Thank you!

    12. Suzanne on

      Hi Bafnayogesh@gmail.com...So sorry I missed your comment. There was a delay in August which has pushed back the shipping timeline. Once we have more information we will definitely let everyone know when to expect their rewards. Thank you!

      Hi
      I have not received any shipping update nor did I receive the jacket as planned in first 2 week of September

    15. Suzanne on

      Hi Janine Wood...Totally agree with you, the anticipation is growing! The jackets were shipped to our distributor warehouses. Some containers can take up to 30 days to arrive. Once they are received, the jackets need to be prepped for individual fulfillment. We are hoping to receive word that we can start shipping select styles by the end of the month. We'll post a new update when we have more information. Thank you!

      I am super excited about this! What is our timeline looking like? As we near the end of the second week in September, the anticipation is rising :)

      Hi Katrina, Please check our 5th update for the shipping timeline. We are sorry if the jacket is not reaching you in time for your trip.

      Can you please tell me when I should expect delivery to Australia?
      It will be a waste of an order if we don't receive then in time, as we bought them specifically for an overseas trip coming up.

      Hello Adriana, As per the latest update we have the jackets will move from the manufacturer to our distributor's warehouses no later than August 20th. The transit time is 30 days.

      The timeline is a little confusing. We will be traveling the second week of September. Will we be receiving our jackets in time?

    22. Ketaki Collaborator on

      Hi @GreyCatGroup, Kliwonz & Lena - The latest status is that the jackets are going through the QC process. We expect them to be in transit to our distributor's warehouses around August 20. Once at the warehouse, our distributor will need three business days to prep the jackets for individual shipping. At that point, our operations team can start processing orders. We will be posting a more detailed update soon. Thank you for your patience.

      Could you please post a project update, been nearly 2 months.

      Hi Tena Reynolds...For the most part, the jackets will move from the manufacturer to our distributor's warehouses no later than August 20th. The transit time is 30 days. Once there, the jackets have to be prepped for individual shipping. We are anticipating the bulk of the pledges to start shipping around the 3rd week in September.

      I am leaving for a trip on September 1st - will jackets be shipped in time for me to receive for my trip?

    27. Ketaki Collaborator on

      Hi Anthony, The estimated shipping for our project is last week of August 2018. I see that we have your order details. You are all set. Be on the lookout for our next update on our campaign page soon. Thanks, Ketaki.

    28. Ketaki Collaborator on

      Hi Joe, We are working on putting together an update. Currently we are gathering manufacturing and distribution information. Be on the lookout for that update on our campaign page soon. Thanks, Ketaki.

      Hi

      Is it normal that I haven’t received yet my order ?
      I was supposed to be in July as I’m based in France
      Can you give me an update ?

      Many thanks and regards

      Please post an update for the phases that should be done by now and any changes to the rest of the timeline.

      Hi Jennifer Binder...The manufacturing process is not quite completed. Shipping will start when the jackets are ready. If our US warehouse is ready to go, they will start shipping regardless of the status of the other warehouses. An update will be posted soon with more information. Thank you! Suzanne

    32. Jennifer Binder on

      This may have been previously asked, but if the fulfillment centers in US, Canada, EU, and Australia, have the jackets ready to ship, why is their shipping held back while production is wrapping up for the Asian fulfillment centers? If the jackets are ready to ship, why not go ahead and get them to your customers?

    33. Carol Collaborator on

      Hello Sharon, We are unable to say for sure if you will receive your jacket before 5th September. We cannot take orders for priority shipping. The jackets must complete the manufacturing phase, then move on to quality control, then transported to our distributor's warehouses, and finally the jackets are prepped for shipping to our backers. Each step in the process can cause delays. Our current timeline still hold true - the jackets will start shipping late August & All jackets should be delivered by 3rd week of September. Thank you!

    34. Carol Collaborator on

      Hello Roberta, We are equally excited to get the jackets to all our backers :)
