SegSac: Elevate the way you pack

Thanks to you - we're funded!  

Because we want you to be even more organized, our first stretch goal is a small, safe-keeper mesh stuff-sack. This little bag will be perfect for little items that you want to keep safe at all times - wallet, phone, small toiletries, anything you need.  It will take up about 1/2 of one compartment of a SegSac 15L.

Never let the hassle of disorganization slow you down again. With the SegSac™, you will only need to organize your gear once. 

Pack with confidence knowing all your gear will remain exactly as you packed it when you arrive to your destination.

The SegSac™ gives you the peace of mind that you'll spend more time exploring the world and less time searching the depths of your backpack.  

4 internal compartments keep gear individually separated yet together in one place, making the SegSac™ the most simple, practical and organizational stuff sack on the market.

How do the rewards work? 

We have had some questions about this, so please use this flow chart:

Choose from one of our 2 models, in 2 sizes - something for everyone!

By conveniently separating your gear while on-the-go, you can say goodbye to stuffing dirty socks next to your clean t-shirts or wasting precious time searching for one lost item. 

Travelers and backpackers alike know that surprises should be in what's over the next peak, not what's in their backpack.  

And when every square inch counts? Upgrade to the SegSac™ Compression and save tons of space in your pack!

We all love to explore the world around us and to satisfy our natural curiosities. Whether we are heading out for a day outdoors or an adventure of a lifetime, we all spend time organizing the gear and clothes we'll need.

But why spend so much time packing in a neat and orderly fashion if you can't keep it that way? At home, everything has its place. Why can't a similar system exist for when we travel? The solution is the SegSac™.

Designed around the principal of empowering active people to do more with their time outdoors, the SegSac™ is the do anything / go anywhere stuff sack designed for ruggedness, quality, and performance.

  • 4 Internal Compartments: Keeps gear internally separated, yet still in one place for easy and quick access to what you need. These compartments are sewn to the bottom so that items will not slide around and jump compartments.
  • Ultra-Light Fabric: Super light yet ultra-durable fabric means you get the best quality fabric without being weighed down.
  • Nylon Handle in Back: Allows you to grab your SegSac™ quickly from your bag.
  • Drawstring: Durable drawstring allows you to quickly open or close your SegSac™.
  • Optional Compression Straps: Need every inch you can get when you pack? Four compression straps will ensure your bag is both organizing and space-saving.
  • Available in Multiple Sizes: Available in two sizes: 15 liter capacity and 20 liter capacity for the SegSac™ and the SegSac™ Compress.
  • Water resistant:  This stuff sack is NOT a dry bag, but water will conveniently bead off it should it get sprayed.  

People with an active lifestyle know the benefits of being organized - it means more time doing what they love. Fussing in your pack for lost items is time that could have been spent hiking another mile or setting up a campsite before sunset.

It was important to Gobi Gear that we designed a product that not only provided increased organization, but also one that is functional enough to withstand any adventure thrown at it.

Take it on the more demanding trips, like a thru-hike on the Appalachian trail, to the more recreational outings such as a picnic at your local park. Anywhere you go, the SegSac™ is aimed to never let the hassle of disorganization slow you down again.

With two unique products - the SegSac™ and SegSac™ Compress - you can be assured that your gear remains organized throughout your journey.

We invite you to pack with confidence. Each product is specially designed to fit your packing needs.

How it Differs from a Hoboroll: 

Instead of taking the place of your trusty backpack, the SegSac™ is designed to go INSIDE other bags. This allows you to use all the gear you are familiar with, but with the added organizational benefits of the SegSac™.

The handle in the back allows for quick and easy access to the SegSac™ from within your backpack. The nylon strings and cord lock allow you to quickly open/close the bag to find the exact item you need. Factor in the ultra-light fabric (making the bag virtually undetectable), and the SegSac™ becomes an ideal addition to your traveling gear.

Don't Let Your Packing Efforts Go to Waste on the Trail

Everyone has their own packing method. We all spend time organizing our gear in a way that we hope will make it easily accessible later on. Yet time and time again, we run into a very familiar scenario: that favorite pair of sunglasses, small flashlight, or matching sock is just not where you left it.

The SegSac™ allows you to pack according to function, taking the guess work out of unpacking. No more digging through your entire bag to find that lucky t-shirt, your items stay exactly how you pack, no matter the journey ahead.

Pack your gear by day, pack it by type, pack however! Either way, your gear will be right where you left it at the end of your journey.

With the help from our backers, we plan to get you out on the trail with the SegSac™ by April 2016, just in time for the Spring hiking season!

As the founder of Gobi Gear and creator of the SegSac™, I was driven by a desire to make getting outdoors easier and less of a hassle. You know that moment, where you have finally made it to the summit or to your campsite, you have been hiking all day, and you feel that exhilarating thrill of a day well accomplished outdoors? I love that feeling!

Then you reach into your backpack to find something, and instead of it being where you expect it to be, it has migrated elsewhere. Now you are wasting time searching through the catacombs of your backpack, looking for that item?

Kinda makes me feel like the time I got boiled trying to body surf shore-break in Hawaii

I found it really frustrating that I had spent all this time packing and planning my trip, and then once actually out there on my journey, I was being slowed by my inability to find something I needed.

Regular stuff sacks didn’t cut it, because they too got loose in my pack. Unless of course I bought a big stuff sack, but that had the same effect as my large backpack – a place to lose things.

Several years ago, before a trip hiking 100 miles through the Himalayan Mountains, I developed the Hoboroll, a segmented stuff sack designed to keep me organized. Over time and through our successful 2014 Kickstarter campaign, the Hoboroll evolved into a really neat stuff-sack that converts to a day-bag.

While the Hoboroll is a perfect bag for traveling, there was still a gap left in the market for an ultralight, minimalist, organizational stuff sack.

So Gobi Gear is going back to it’s roots on this one! Aimed at anyone who wants the most simple, paired down solution to being organized while living out of a backpack, the SegSac™ is it!

The SegSac™ has been in development since 2013, slowly being tested and perfected along the way. What we have here today is a culmination of many outdoor gear junkie’s advice, thoughts, and feedback, all rolled into the very best product we can give to you.

Griffin and I still enjoy traveling the world looking for exotic places to hike. We moved to Bend, Oregon so we could spend as much time as possible outdoors, and enjoy all that this beautiful world has to offer us.

FAQ:

1.  Early bird specials.  

Q.  "I want to pledge for more than just 1 early bird.  Maybe even a combination of two early bird specials.  What is the best way"

A.  The best way is to just add up the total value of your pledge and do that.  So if you want 2x 15L SegSac early bird ($16 each) and 1x 20L SegSac Compress ($27 + $5), your total pledge would be $64, plus shipping.  

*once the early birds are sold out, the easiest way to get multiple bags is just build your own bundle reward.

Risks and challenges

Our team is committed to bringing you stuff sacks that will exceed your expectations. With our experience levels, we feel confident that we can produce and deliver these stuff sacks as promised.

Also, this isn’t our first time at this. We have done our homework, so the risks are minimal. We have identified and locked in our manufacturers who will be able to ship within 4 months of successful project funding, so you can enjoy your very own SegSac organization before the spring travel season kicks in.

What you are seeing are prototypes, so expect the final product to be more polished and of supreme quality.
