Whenever we leave home for an extended period of time we stuff everything we need in a bag. Even though it’s in our pack, it’s inaccessible and becomes a hassle to find. At Dzuke, we love being outside and know that a cluttered mess can keep anyone from enjoying their time away from home. That’s why we created the Dzuke Duffel.
The Dzuke Duffel is a backpacking organizer that expands to access all of your gear and compresses to fit right into your backpack.
and you're good to go.
Our product has quickly evolved to meet the needs of those who love the outdoors and enjoy traveling. The Dzuke Duffel was designed to fit in backpacking packs to take on long trips and keep gear organized in a tent. The durable material is lightweight, water-resistant and easy to slide in and out of a pack.
It also can also be used for picnics, BBQs, car camping, hammock camping, and even for those traveling with a suitcase to quickly hang all belongings in a closet with minimal effort.
There are three variations of the Dzuke Duffel to fit all your different needs: The Mini size is perfect for your short outings where you don't need to bring a ton. The Original is our flagship product with enough space for even the most complicated trip. The Deluxe is our elite duffel and introduces tightening straps to simplify your packing process.
**The original weighs 8 oz and the deluxe will weigh a little bit more because of the straps and clips. We have not received samples of the deluxe yet, but will make sure it is as light as possible before we place the first order. **
They are available in a variety of colors including, red, grey, yellow, blue, and green, with more options to come in the future (like camouflage for archery hunters in a tree stand).
We have a couple of different options for each of the Dzuke Duffel sizes. The super early bird and early bird will be available for just the first 50 purchases of each size. If you miss out on those, don't worry, you can still purchase as many as you want at our exclusive Kickstarter special price.
Our goal is to get these Dzuke Duffels to you as soon as possible. We are already in contact with manufacturers overseas and hope to receive some first samples shortly. After that, it is just a matter of making sure that it meets our quality standards and then we will place the order to get them made!
Prototyping / Early Production
Dzuke has been a homegrown company from day one. The first prototype was developed through the night, right before our first competition. Unsurprisingly the Dzuke Duffel, then called the Hike Duffel, took first place and that was when Dzuke was born. Since then we have been working out of our house to improve the product until it was perfect for consumer use.
Risks and challenges
In order to sell to large buyers, large inventory is needed. We, at Dzuke, have come to Kickstarter in hopes of finding enough backers to fund our first large order from our manufacturer. We’ve never failed to deliver an order and plan to fulfil every order placed on our Kickstarter. We appreciate your support and value what you have to say. We welcome feedback and suggestions, and hope to hear from our backers what they would like to see in future Dzuke products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
