About

The world is an undeniably dangerous place for electronics and sensitive gear that need protection from water, dirt, chemicals, and abrasion.  

Explore. The Gobi pouch can tackle any urban or outdoor expedition.

The Mazu Gobi Pouch, designed to protect your laptop from the unforgiving elements of the world we live in. The Gobi pouch is constructed using PVC tarpaulin and sealed using ultrasonic welded seams, resulting in an abrasion, chemical, and water resistant design. This means your laptop or other items are protected. The oversized zipper opening allows for simple ingress and egress of most 13” and some 14” laptops. It also works well for organizing smaller items that need protection from grime, moisture, and dust.  

Simple Storage for 13" laptops. 

The 13.5" zipper opening provides easy egress and ingress of most 13" laptops (and some 14"). Check dimensions of other laptops to confirm they will fit (15" version coming soon).

100% Waterproof

500D PVC Tarpaulin resists abrasion, mildew, water, and chemicals. 

Yes, the zipper too

It's 100% water and air tight, meaning nothing gets in, or out. It's equipped with a large #10 zipper with a large zipper pull to aid in opening and closing. As long as the zipper is sealed, your laptop and gear are safe. 

Ultrasonic Welded Seams

This results in clean and maintenance free seams. No need to apply seam sealer or treat with waterproofer. The seam is 1/4" thick to provide adequate strength during use. 

Color Coded Organization

Plenty of room for all your gear.

Five color options to color code all your gear.   

Construction 

Made from the same material as that used on US Navy Rigid Hull Boats. So you can expect your gear to be protected. 

 Will your laptop fit? Check you laptop dimensions, remembering to take into account the thickness of you laptop. 

Usage


  To close the zipper, move the slider slowly and firmly pull the zipper into the end stop.  If zipper is not fully sealed, items will not be protected. Periodically test the the seal by inflating and submerging in water. Do not use if air escapes the bag during test. Protect the bag from sharp objects and unnecessary abrasion. Inspect the bag for wear before use. Mazu is not responsible for any damage caused to equipment from the use of this product. Zipper is intentionally difficult to pull as to not accidentally become unzipped in storage.

About

I am engineer by trade and thus I am curiosity and solutions driven. My inspiration for the Gobi pouch came from my own unfortunate encounters with my laptop being damaged by water. As an avid biker, skier, and hiker I expect my own gear to be durable. I’ve built the Gobi pouch to what I feel is the same or better quality. I love continuing to finding solutions to everyday problems.  

Why We Exist

MAZU was founded by an engineer and outdoorsman. Durability, sustainability, and adventure are the pillars of the best outdoor gear, including ours. This influences what we do and how we do it in the following ways:

Pillars

Durability – We build our products to last. If there is a problem with your product, let us know. 

Sustainability – We have one World. Let’s protect it. Products are built to be used over and over and over again. 

Adventure – We build our gear based on adventure. Get out there and experience it. Gear built for NYC or Moab. 

We've kept this relatively word sparse because as Kevin from The Office would say "Why waste time say lot word when few word do trick?" Also, pictures speak a thousand words, and we've got plenty of those. 

Risks and challenges

We have had previous experience manufacturing plastics overseas so we are not foreign to manufacturing overseas. We have worked hard to find a manufacturer who is willing to meet all of our quality and quantity needs.

However, we also know that sometimes unforeseen obstacles and challenges can occur. If something does go awry you can expect us to keep our backers updated and informed on the problem and proposed solution.
