About this project

 

After creating two of the most backed flashlight projects EVER on Kickstarter, with over 20,000 backers, we set out to create more awesome, minimal EDC products. 

Our Previous Projects
Our Previous Projects

We wanted to step-out of our comfort zone and test our abilities to create the best, most premium products. From that, WOLVERINE was born. 

The brand that set the EDC standard has just raised the bar.

 

 

We focused on a premium, lightweight, and minimal design, providing water-resistant seams and an ultra-durable FuseFabric™ shell. For optimum carry capabilities, we added a removable cross shoulder strap to simply throw over your shoulder. 

Simple, easy and effortless, we see things from a different perspective.

Our FuseFabric™ technology vastly improves upon traditional Nylon Ripstop. It’s a revolutionary weaving process that blends thicker, more-durable threads with lighter, lower-density fibers all coming together with a polyurethane coating. This effectively reduces overall weight and creating a seamless experience over all.

REGENERATIVE - Self healing & repairing when small cuts or punctures occur. No tools needed - simply rub the fabric with your bare hands. 

 

COLLAPSIBLE / EXPANDABLE - The roll top bag design allows for flexible storage capability. No longer will you have a floppy nor overstuffed bag.

PACKABLE - The Wolverine packs down to the size of a cell phone at half the weight. Perfect add-on for more rigorous traveling that requires a flexible utility bag. 

WEATHER RESISTANT - Holds up in all weather conditions and can be submerged at 1 ATM. Protected against accidental exposure to water; for example, splashes, perspiration or accidental immersion.

The simplest solutions solve the biggest problems. What makes us different? We eliminate weight, bulk, and hassle from standard everyday carry bags. We've created an effortless experience between you, and your EDC. 

The outdoors have never been so close. We designed Wolverine to be perfect for hiking, going to the beach, surfing, or climbing- you name it. Get out of town with the buddies, or explore the the endless trails of the outdoors, all with the convenience of your Wolverine.

We combined a sharp, elegant design with breakthrough fabric technology to bring you a perfect day-to-day use Utility Bag. We believe that the shape, and size keep the design minimal, functional, easy to carry, and completely hassle-free in any situation. You can sport it on the subway to your office just as easily as you can take it on a blissful day hike.

 

Designed by combining our break-through Regenerative FuseFabric™ Technology, with the traditional roll/clip bag design, we bring you an ultra durable, easy to carry utility pack for your everyday use.

We added a 6 inch tall double layered base to help with durability as well as support for those heavier situations.

Though the bag is quite simple, it has details where it matters. We even opted for a solid silicone logo for water resistance and durability.

OUR MANUFACTURING PARTNERS

We chose our manufacturing partners based on a couple factors. The first and foremost was experience- our partners have had 30+ years of experience manufacturing bags for various big name brands. Once we saw their successful track record with these household names, we were confident in their ability to deliver.

Secondly, their R&D department was the most advanced we had seen. The FuseFabric was a new development they were able to tweak an customize to our needs. Though self-healing fabrics have been around for a couple years now, they haven't been refined to the point of being fully production ready and field-testable. We needed something strong and durable, but also lightweight and water resistant. 

Our partners have nearly all production processes in house.

Quality and attention to detail were other factors that contributed to their long history of success. We noticed this on full display when we visited in Summer 2017. They were fully transparent and communicative in all steps of the manufacturing process.

Risks and challenges

If WOLVERINE is successfully funded, we will make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. We've already visited our manufacturing partners to discuss any potential issues with using FuseFabric. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always unforeseen obstacles that may present themselves during the production process. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule.
