Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project but we know more than a thing or two about how to make creative people happy, no matter where in the world they are based. We have over 4 years experience in the camera bag and backpack industry. We're renowned for our product quality and customer service alike.

Even though the explorer backpacks are all new products, we can rely on the expertise, craftsmanship, quality control and production management of Deuter, the premier backpack manufacturer in the world. Having built several prototypes of the explorer backpack together in the past 12 months, we're now on the final version which is ready for production. Together we're also on top of the challenge getting the products ready for shipping.

The explorer backpacks are in release stage and won't need any major changes prior to production start. All parts and fabrics are meticulously developed and thoroughly tested by our partners as well as ourselves to ensure there's no trip wires anywhere in the process.
The project itself, as well as all partners and suppliers, are ready to go as soon as the funding for the project is confirmed.

While this is our first Kickstarter campaign we're determined to deliver not only a successful campaign but also our great customer service to all backers to ensure their full satisfaction. Obviously, there are unforseeable acts of God or supply chain difficulties which may cause a delay in our schedule but we'll strive to work through those unlikely events. All backers will be notified about the project status and any upcoming changes or delays and we'll come up with a great solution to ensure all backers will receive their compagnon as promised.
