The minimal daily carry, urban backpack, sling bag – PRIM
Minimal city life backpack and sling. The less-is-more modular bags keep you light everyday by taking with you only the necessaries.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, July 4 2019 9:10 AM UTC +00:00.
Our world was meant to be explored and enjoyed as freely as possible – and that means without lugging around a massive backpack or purse. PRIM is the modular bag designed with the modern-day urbanite in mind. This less-is-more hybrid bag can be what you need it to be and hold what you need it to hold, without any wasted space or unnecessary items slowing you down.
In building the PRIM, we stripped the concept of a daily bag down to its core and rebuilt it one piece at a time, placing careful emphasis at maximizing utility and comfort with each addition. PRIM bags can be worn however it is most comfortable – either as a sling bag or in backpack mode. The inside of the bag is also modular, with padded dividers that give the flexibility to set up your bag the way you want. The PRIM Collection is bursting with features, including:
One bag, two different ways of carrying. With the detachable backpack design, backpack mode and one-shoulder sling mode can be easily switched depending on different application need by changing the backload to the sling shoulder strap.
Soft fabric inside the bag not only provides protection to your devices, but also allows you to organize the items of different sizes and shapes and to customize storage space to avoid sloshing. Padded dividers and reflective fasteners are must-have! They will be free when we reach 40K stretch goal.
Besides the main compartment, you can find a large mesh pocket with zipper to storage sundries, an elastic cord to hold the cables, a pocket for your phone, a transparent mini one and so on. From every small gadget to document, to your valued device, can find its own place in the bag.
The size of the X11 is only 10.7“L x 7.8“H x 2.2“W (273*198*55mm), which is suitable for daily lightweight trip. X11 bag's internal hard board and backing board can also provide extra protection for 9.7" tablet, Switch and other devices. Xs11 bag is small in size and large in capacity: it can be used for daily change of laundry and accessories for going out. In addition, Xs11 bag can be used as an extra add-on bag on the X11 or Y series bags to accommodate various travel options.
The belt pack can be attached to waist individually, or to bags by Molle or quick buckle. A leg strap is under development so that it can be used as a leg bag. Stay tuned!
A separate backload fits well with the back curve of your body, distributing the load of your bags and making you feel light and better.
Endless possibilities: The inner soft fabric provides hook and loop feature. Besides padded dividers allow you to customize the inner compartment storage space and place items of different shapes and sizes to avoid sloshing, reflective fasteners can hold your items tightly inside the bag.
Reflective hook and loop: In addition to night safety, it can also be a decoration outside the bag.
More advanced: There’s a simple Molle system available for you to attach packs and gears to the bag, and even add the X11/Xs11 bag or belt bag to Y bags as you like. Extra loops outside the bag and reflective loop on shoulder strap are available for stuffs hanging like sunglasses and hand sanitizer.
As a team dedicated to designing gadgets, we come to realize that the backpacks available in marketplace are either bulky or out of shape. What we want is a bag which is light and slim, yet durable and versatile, good looking based on ergonomics with other complimentary features such as anti-thief, Molle system, quick access etc.
People tend to put too many stuff in their bag that they don’t have to. With Molle system in place, inner soft fabric, we can customize capacity ourselves, and we can even add a GoPro for video filming! With this bag on hand, we don’t have to spend even a cent for other bags. We hate waste!
We have a partner to cooperate who is specialized in mass production, and after months’ optimization on design and numerous modification on modeling, we finally make this product line ready for this campaign.

Risks and challenges
