THE MOTION SERIES - ARC
The Arc is a small and lightweight active pack that combines a bunch of sleek features which makes it a perfect companion for your daily life and everything besides.
THE MOTION SERIES - ELLIPSE
The ELLIPSE is the bigger brother of the ARC and shares the same materials and a lot of its features. A larger volume, extra pockets and a more complex stretchable layer with dual compression make the difference, while following the same principles.
If you want to add one of our Coolever T-Shirts or a set of hip belt pockets just add the price toyour pledge and we'll get back to you after the campaign. You are also able to to choose from a range of additional Heimplanet products when you get your fulfillment survey after the end of the campaign.
Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter campaign but we have been around since 2011. In the past years we have got some great experience in producing high quality goods and fulfilling many orders with them in the US, Europe and Asia which minimizes the chance of any unexpected issue throwing us off track.
We put a lot of thoughts, time and money in our designs. Many prototypes and samples have been produced and tested for months. Several things have been improved step by step and we are proud to say: our design is ready for production now.
Sourcing and manufacturing:
We have been sourcing and developing fabrics and accessories together with our suppliers and manufacturing partners intensively during the last months. 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.
Even though we also have got great experience in shipping parcels internationally backers outside the USA 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 pas 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

Most of the materials incorporated in the MOTION Series are in fact waterproof. However, in order to call a backpack "waterproof" it would need to be 100% submergible, which these are not. Still, we like to call them "weatherproof" due to the materials' properties and the use of things like the water resistant YKK Zippers. There is an excellent article on this topic on Carryology, going into detail on this topic, which we highly recommend:
We hope this answers your question to your satisfaction. Otherwise, feel free to contact us directly at email@example.com to receive a more elaborate answer.
The Heimplanet Motion series will be manufactured in Vietnam. We have worked together with this production partner for years and regularily visit the sites to be able to gurantee the desired quality standard and humane working conditions.
Yes they do. All of our products come with a standard warranty of over a period of two years after the receipt of your backpack. During this period, we will fix all faults that fall under the statutory warranty obligation. The warranty does not cover damages caused by misuse, normal wear or damages caused by external impacts.
"You can use a debit or credit card associated with Visa, Discover, MasterCard, or American Express. Discover is currently only accepted for US-based projects. We do not currently accept Maestro or Visa Electron cards. If using a pre-paid credit card, please make sure that the card has a value of at least $1 more than your pledge amount.
At this time, only backers based in Germany pledging less than €250 towards a German project will have the option to use SEPA direct debit as their payment method. Just a reminder that pledges are only charged at the end of a project's campaign if it is successfully funded.
Payment via PayPal unfortunately isn't possible at this time.
On Kickstarter, it's only possible to pledge to a project once from a single account. Accordingly, backers can only choose one reward tier per pledge. You can, however, change your pledge amount and reward selection for as long as a project is live.
