Furling bag unique invention for gear transport systems

Dedal’s furling bag was designed for all backpackers, hikers, preparers, hunters, campers and all outdoor enthusiast. But list of potential users can be longer as there are a lot of other perfect application everywhere orderliness in transported gear is requested.

The problem.

Single chamber backpack and bags are very popular among all type of users. Try to pack and arrange a lot of different stuff in single chamber. After you spend a lot of time for segregation of different type of ie. clothes, after few minutes of carry they become to be mixed.

The solution!  

Proudly presenting

Furling bag designed by DEDAL consist of several independent tube shape pockets. Pockets are open from both side as well as big zip lock along longer axle of pocket tube can be open to makes pockets easy to fill with equipment. Pockets can be easy connected by zip locks to create multi pocket chain. This pocket chain can be rolled and to create bigger roller. Please find schematic animation of furling idea principle below.

 Infographic presented below allow you to see main benefits of furling bag against single chamber backpack and benefits when you start to use both of them together.

 Start to keep all packed gear in great order and segregation.

 No more problems with finding correct item

 After that bigger roller can be compressed by external compression belts to safe a lot of free space.

 Furling bag can be carry in bigger backpack as equipment binder which helps to keep all gear in perfect order.

Furling bag can also be carried independently via hand and arm belt. Lightweight, compact, ultra adjustable and customizable bag with more applications than simple bag.

 Creator’s story.

I’m outdoor enthusiast and I like hiking very much. Several years ago I bought very nice 40 liters backpack with swinging hip belt. I like this backpack very much and I used it very regularly for weekend city breaks. But every time I packed it I was frustrated. It has only one narrow and deep chamber. When I try to reach any item during hiking I always have problem to localize this particular one. I started to use plastic bags to segregate my gears but I thought there must be more elegant and sophisticated way to do it. And this made me to start thinking how to improve packing abilities for my favorite backpack. And this is how furling bag came to life.

Project timeline.

2012Frustration: first attempts to solve packing problem. A lot of plastic bags was used to pack my stuff

2013- Illumination - I was on flea market and spotted vintage rolling bag for hand wrenches. End EUREKA – I can use this old idea to solve my problems.

2014 – A lot of different idea was tested to develop most flexible and usable design. 2 pieces of furling bag prototype was created for field test.

December 2014I applied for a Patent in local patent office in Europe.

January 2015 – I started to look for fabric and other small appliances necessary to create more furling bags.

February 2015 – I found manufacturer of all plastic parts and ordered appropriate amount to start production.

March 2015- Funpage was created to introduce bag to others.

April 2015 – Kickstarter campaign

What is purpose of this campaign.

After positive Kickstarter campaign I would to spend collected money for international formal intellectual property protection. I’m still wondering what exact type of this protection will be used. I can choose between international patent, utility model and/or proprietary name. Still do not know exactly which model of protection I will use but all of them are VERY COSTLY! And this is a reason why I still do not introduce final official product name. Furling bag is name via description just to visualize application.

I would be very glad if you can propose product name you may think will fit this product on product funpage.

I will also appreciate any advises which intellectual protection way fits this product most on my funpage

After successful campaign. 

I will start production. As you see I have limited numbers of bags to be offered as rewards in this campaign as this number meets my manufacturing possibilities. This number of furling bag can be manufactured in reasonable time period. 

 This will take about 2 months form receiving money on my account to finish production. 

Then I will need about 1 month for shipment. 

Product and reward details

Note that parts D – Zip lock which connects single chambers are also orange.

 Note – color may vary as it depends of monitor settings.

Risks and challenges

Product is already developed and beta tested. I have already reserved all small plastic parts from manufacturer and these parts will be ready in 2 days. I have already bought fabric to manufacture offered numbers of bags. So now only one think is to cut patterns and sew all together. All sewing equipment is on my peace. So most risky part of job is already passed.
But as life is live some challenges may occur

Product Manufacturing Delays

I have run pilot series of 10 bags and I’m confident that the 2 months is enough to cover offered numbers of bags however there may occur small delays as someone can become sick or sewing equipment malfunction. As all production is on my please I can take care of this personally and no major delays are expected.

Shipping Delays and Lost Packages

As I offer limited number of bags I feel I will be able to ship it in 4 weeks.
I will use reliable postal service do minimalize shipping delays and lost packages. Even if it means sending out a product second time, I’m committed to make sure it gets into your hands.
