What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 

 

 

Our Free Spirit 30L Backpack has inner compartments that fold out of the way if you don't need them. 

Stay organized, be comfortable, and pack it up when you are done. There is NO other pack that does what ours does!

 

 

  

Adventure needed a more nimble backpack – one ready for any excursion.

This 30L backpack is FEATURE-LOADED! We left nothing to chance, and did not make any sacrifices. Just because a backpack is packable doesn't mean you need to give up on everything else!

30L Free Spirit Adventure Backpack Available color: Mossy Green (with gray & blue accents) Stretch goals for more colors if we fund!

*** PS folks - we'll be using BackerKit at the end, and YES you can add on more Gobi Gear products at that time, all for a nice discount of 15-20%, just for you!! 

 

 

 

 

Built with purpose. The FreeSpirit is lightweight, functional, and is jam-packed with essential features that make this the perfect addition to all your adventures.

 

 

 

Inner organization: Inner compartments allow for you to easily keep track of gear. Compartments fold out of the way if you do not need them.

Find items fast. Always have a handle on your gear when using the inner compartments

Bonus front pocket: Perfect for storing your phone, wallet, snack, or sunscreen.

Dual Zipper Pockets: One on the outside of the headpouch for quick access, one on the inside of the headpouch for stowing more important items like keys, passport, etc.

 

 

Comfortable & Adjustable Waist Straps: Padded waist straps give added support when the pack is fully loaded. Bonus zippered pocket on the right strap.

Lower back pad supports: added comfort for your longer haul hikes. These mesh pads add comfort where it's most needed.

 

Thick, reinforced shoulder straps: will never dig, no matter how much water you choose to bring along.

 

Two external, slanted pouches: reinforced and durable, these two pockets can easily fit up to a 30oz water bottle, a packable raincoat, or trekking poles. Slanted lines means easy to grab your water bottle without taking the pack off your back.  *the bottle pictured is a 40oz tall!

Inner bladder sleeve & loop: Inner sleeve for your hydration bladder with a loop to hold it in place. Sleeve can be use for extra storage or to pad your back with soft items should you not want a hydration bladder.

 

Big enough for your adventure: Puffer and shell no problem, a full day hike with 4 liters of water is easy, and an overnight trip leaves room to spare!

 

 Adjustable chest strap

 Chest strap bungee

 

Water-Resistant Fabric: It's okay if you get the bag wet; your gear stays dry.

 

 Really strong. Go ahead, you try. We gave up.

The Rewards:

 The Gobi Gear Story 

Gobi Gear is a functional adventure gear brand dedicated to making travel and outdoor pursuits more efficient. Founded by an outdoor adventurist who was tired of the chaos in her backpack, the brand was born just before her first trip to Nepal. She wanted organization and the ability to compress all of her essential gear just like she would a sleeping bag. Two months later, Gobi Gear designed its first prototype of an organization stuff sack with the sole purpose of making adventure more convenient. Adventure is now organized thanks to Gobi Gear. Socialize with Gobi Gear @gobigear on Facebook and Instagram.

Risks and challenges

Our team is committed to bringing you backpacks that will exceed your expectations. With our experience levels, we feel confident that we can produce and deliver them 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 5 months of successful project funding, so you can enjoy your very own Free Spirit before the summer travel season kicks in.

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