HEIMPLANET Transit Line - Everyday travel bags

€91,315

We are HEIMPLANET, a small passion driven team trying to find solutions for problems that are not solved properly or which are simply new. We were always caught in-between the categories the industry tried to put us in. Never really happy with what we found in classical outdoor shops we decided to do it ourselves. We always knew that we are more than one stereotype and so are you. This is why we are here. Be part of our journey to overcome boundaries. Thank you for all your support. And thank you for backing our project.

THE CONCEPT

Never before have our lives been more fluid. Every day we wander between the worlds of TRAVEL, WORK and PLAY. We wanted bags that make these transitions effortless. That’s why we built the TRANSIT LINE - a series that combines functionality, durability and sustainability. Probably the last bags you’ll ever need.

                           

HOW TO GET THEM  

If you like the TRANSIT LINE, become a backer and place a pre-order by choosing a reward displayed at the right. Remember that you can only pick one reward. You will get a nice backer discount which you won’t find anywhere else plus you will receive your stuff before it is available in stores. You can also add another bag to your reward or pre-order more than one bag. Just choose the reward that you like most and add the KICKSTARTER ONLY price of the additional item you want to your total amount.  

e.g.
SUPER EARLY BIRD / TRAVEL PACK @ 149 € 
+ KICKSTARTER ONLY / TRAVEL PACK @ 169 €
TOTAL: 318 €
Retail price will be 440 €
YOU SAVE 122 € or approx. 140 $

If you want to add one of our TRANSIT LINE KEYCHAINS or a set of TRANSIT LINE COMPRESSION / CARRY STRAPS just add the price you can find below to your pledge and we'll get back to you after the campaign ends. 

TRANSIT LINE KEYCHAIN please add 5 € 
TRANSIT LINE COMPRESSION STRAPS please add 15 € 

If you want to add another HEIMPLANET product you like with a backer discount you will get the chance to do so after the campaign ends - you will see. Please check our FAQ section or contact us directly via email for further questions.

STRETCH GOALS

UPDATES

We are happy to share the final color of our dope dyed lining with you. We put it right next to our DYECOSHELL outer fabric. You also see a sample of the two colored yarns used for the dope dyed lining. It's bright, it's tough, it's sustainable!

 MENTIONED IN

PACK HACKER REVIEW

Tom from Pack Hacker and his crew reviewed our Travel Pack.
Watch the video below to understand why it quickly became one of there favorites!

KEY FEATURES

CLAMSHELL OPENING
AND INTERNAL DIVIDER WITH 3D LAY-FLAT POCKETS

The TRAVEL PACK can be opened completely when laid down flat thanks to its clamshell opening. That's the perfect way to pack your gear nicely without stuffing it in. The dedicated large front compartment is the right place for all your bulky stuff. The internal divider (accessible through the rear zipper) makes it easy to keep the front organized and separates the main volume of the pack. It also offers two unique 3D lay-flat pockets which collapse when not in use but offer a serious amount of volume if needed.

LAPTOP COMPARTMENT & ORGANIZATION PANEL


The division in the back is not only home of the suspended 3D laptop compartment, it also offers several smaller and larger stretch pockets as well as a second fleece lined compartment for your iPad / iPad Pro or magazines etc. The rear compartment is accessed through a #10 WATER-R zipper that is super sturdy and highly water resistant.

QUICK ACCESS ZIPPER  

A long u-shaped zipper allows you to get whatever you need out of the front compartment quickly. Perfect to reach for your jacket or dopp kit while on the road.

FRONT AND TOP POCKET


The exterior offers two large zipper pockets for smaller items. One at the top and another one that opens through a vertical zipper - hidden underneath a flap on the right.

ERGONOMIC SHOULDER STRAPS  AND BACK PADDING

The harness system of the TRAVEL PACK is made of dual density EVA foam and all next-to-skin areas are covered by a smooth Cordura polyester stretch fabric that’s durable, yet also soft to the touch and won’t ruin your clothing.


The TRAVEL PACK comes with a fully adjustable and removable sternum strap and hip belt featuring our custom made aluminum hardware. Needless to say the shoulder straps are adjustable as well, plus they even have a smart solution to prevent loose webbing ends from dangling around.

SHOULDER STRAP / TROLLEY HANDLE SLEEVE

The lower back padding offers two more features besides being super comfy. It has a built in sleeve underneath the padding which is the perfect place to secure the shoulder straps before putting your pack in the overhead locker or when you carry it in landscape mode. The exact same sleeve can be used to pass through the handle of your trolley to get your pack off your back.

                           
                  
      

The ROLL TOP MESSENGER BAG is a hybrid of a subtle work briefcase and a modern messenger bag. It comes with an adjustable, removable and interchangeable courier strap which offers everything from a tight fit to a more casual one.

                 

KEY FEATURES

COURIER STRAP

The COURIER STRAP offers all carry options you need. You can wear it over your right or left shoulder, loose or tight…. - the position of the dual density EVA padding is highly flexible and right where you need it, when you need it. Through our custom aluminum hardware and our unique Hypalon attachment points the included sternum strap can be attached on both sides of the COURIER STRAP and it really pins the bag down to your back if required.

MAGNETIC ROLL TOP CLOSURE

One advantage of the roll top closure is the weather resistance it offers but it also brings the right adjustability to make the Messenger Bag always look perfectly packed. The aluminum G-hook closure is simple in its appearance yet super easy to operate and still leaves extra room to put your rain jacket on top. The folding mechanism uses magnets to align the edges nicely for easy closing.

PADDED AND FLEECED LAPTOP COMPARTMENT

The fleece covered laptop compartment also offers an EVA foam padding on the inside and outside. The position of the compartment - facing away from the wearer - allows the ROLL TOP MESSENGER BAG to wrap around your body the way you’re used to from high-quality bike messenger bags. As a hidden gem you will find our signature pattern quilted in the fleece of the laptop compartment.

FRONT AND INTERNAL POCKETS

On top of the laptop compartment you’ll find another smaller pocket offering sufficient organization to have your essentials in close reach. The inside of the roll top compartment is minimalistic, providing space for larger items but also offering organization with two flat mesh pockets and an elastic webbing to keep your water bottle from flying around when you need to sprint for the bus.

                 

When it's just about your very essentials the SLING POCKET is the right choice. Featuring the same materials as its bigger brothers the SLING POCKET is by your side all day - keeping your hands free.

MAIN COMPARTMENT & ORGANIZATION
The main compartment offers plenty of internal organization to prevent it from becoming a black hole. We all know even the smallest things can get messed up... we’ve got you covered.

FRONT POCKET
To protect your glasses or phone from scratches we added a flat front pocket which is fleece lined on both sides.



DETAILS
The back panel is reinforced with a layer of EVA foam featuring our signature quilted pattern to pin down the smooth stretch fabric that covers it. The strap is adjustable and interchangeable through the same custom aluminum SLITLOK we use for the other items.

                                                        

TRANSIT LINE KEYCHAIN

To round out your TRANSIT LINE gear collection we offer a simple but universal helper - The TRANSIT LINE KEYCHAIN. A little attachment loop in the organization area of every of the three main items is where the KEYCHAIN calls home. And it is even interchangeable with other straps from the TRANSIT LINE if you feel the need for a custom solution. Maybe you’ll even find an application we didn’t think of before.

TRANSIT LINE COMPRESSION / CARRY STRAPS

The COMPRESSION / CARRY STRAPS are an optional add-on for your TRAVEL PACK. They serve as an upper compression or as a set of carry straps to secure bulky things outside of your TRAVEL PACK by using the Hypalon attachment points on the front.

Risks and challenges

Heimplanet is around since 2011 and we have successfully completed and fulfilled our first Kickstarter campaign in 2016/17. Throughout the last years we have gained some great experience in producing high quality goods and fulfilling many orders in the US, Europe and Asia which minimizes the chance of any unexpected issue throwing us off track.

Design:
During the last two years we put lots thoughts, time and money in our development. Many prototypes and samples have been produced and tested for months. Several things have been improved step by step.

Sourcing and manufacturing:
We have been sourcing and developing fabrics and accessories together with our suppliers and manufacturing partners intensively during the last two years for this particular project. We know our manufacturing partner very well, have visited them a couple of times and developed and produced several bags with them already. They are exceptionally qualified and reliable and always delivered on time.

Shipping and Fulfillment:
We use two warehouses: one in California, USA and one in Germany. That means we can ship domestic within the US and EU, which makes our campaign an EU- and US backer friendly project, because there won't be any import duties and taxes.
Even though we also have got great experience in shipping parcels internationally backers outside the US and the EU should be aware that there might be some issues subject to possible customs procedures.

Even after careful planning in all above mentioned fields unexpected things can happen: for example when accessories from a supplier do not pass QC and need to be remade or when a sea container needs to be reloaded during an unplanned stop because of a change in route etc. That’s why we always plan with a built-in buffer. Sometimes not enough.
You can be sure we will always communicate straight forward and deal with any issues in a way that leaves every last customer happy with their purchase.

Thanks a lot for your support!
