About this project
A UNIQUE ANALOG STYLED LAPTOP BAG.
We reckon The Cassatchel is the coolest laptop bag on any street. It's no simple printed laptop bag... the cassette design is a fully molded 3D detail that's an integral part of the form.
There are a thousand laptop bags out there. But they're all really boring! They kinda make you feel like you're off to work in the movie "Office Space"... fluoro-lit office cubes, fuzzy divider panels, tiled carpet and TPS reports.
For the creative technology types among us, there's The Cassatchel. An analog take on this most digital of products!
It's super-light, eliminating the dreaded "one-sided laptop limp", and reducing shoulder strain. It's made from formed impact foam, with a tough polyester blend exterior. This combination looks great and protects your precious devices from hard knocks.
But best of all, you're rocking your digital device around in 80's analog style. Profess your true-school credentials with a future retro selection.
- Colors: Black and Yellow (maybe more, if funding goes well!)
- Weight: Approx 225gms
- Sizes: 15 inch bag, 13 inch bag, 10 inch sleeve (for iPads/tablets)
WHERE WE'RE UP TO:
The Cassatchel is now at final prototype stage. We have the manufacturers sorted and ready to tool up... but we need help to make the molds. The final production bags will have deeper, sharper details than the prototype you see here, for super extra coolness!
WHERE'S MY MONEY GOING?
Your awesome Kickstarter support will go toward these very important things:
- Final "manufacturers" prototype (the one they make the final master off)
- Tooling of the mold that we form the bags on
- Paying for the manufacturer's minimum order quantity
- Packaging and tagging for retail editions
- Funding beyond our goal may allow for more colors and special editions!
We're so close to making this fun, inspiring product a reality. Now we just need your help with the final step... production!
Thanks a million for being a part of this... we hope you enjoy your Cassatchel as much as we've enjoyed creating it.
