Product Development

We started the design process in August 2018, and it took 14 months for revisions and testing to end up with the final product. It's fair to say this is our most rigorously tested product. Prototypes have been tested in a variety of conditions, with varying loads through eight countries, and on planes, trains, buses, uber, ferries, water taxis and bikes.

The Henty Team

(L to R) Jon Gourlay, Roy Langman, Jeremy Grey

The Name Henty

Henty was founded in Tasmania, Australia’s island state. Named after a remote area on the state’s rugged west coast, on the edge of the renowned Wilderness World Heritage Area. It’s home to diverse coastal and inland trails and has some of the cleanest air in the world.

Our Culture

Henty’s focus remains simple – to create clever carrying products, from quality materials, which make life easier for active people.

Our team use Henty products every day. We don’t release products for the sake of it. We only design products which make life a little bit easier. Our materials are ethically sourced and our products are built to last and withstand the elements.

At the core of what drives us is one simple phrase “provide clever solutions for our customers”. Our focus is more than a mantra as we always put the customer first. This is evident in the products we produce, through to the customer support we provide.

Warranty

When it comes to our products, we’ve got your back. We will repair or replace the appropriate part(s) if your Henty product fails as a result of defective materials or workmanship under normal use within five years of purchase.

Should this happen, contact us with your proof of purchase and explain the problem, and we will get back to you just as soon as possible.

See our FAQs for more info.

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 900+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $390MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

At Henty, we have experience in crowdfunding, manufacturing and distribution.

Since launching Henty in 2012, we've been working with the same factory and suppliers. We've successfully completed and fulfilled a crowdfunding project with 1,300 backers and have now manufactured and distributed over 30,000 products to over 15 countries.

An initial production run of 20 Travel Brief's has been completed, with bags now in the hands of testers and reviewers. This means we are ready to manufacture the Travel Brief and deliver this to backers within three months of the successful campaign.

Whilst every dispatched item comes with insurance, we know you want your pack delivered ASAP. This is why we will offer an additional insurance option, which will allow us to resend any missing parcels within days, rather than waiting a month to be resent, which many delivery agents require.

Our proven quality control processes will ensure your purchase will exceed expectations. Since 2012, our return rate for defective products has been less than 0.4 per cent. Industry standard return rate is around 2%.

Additionally, every Henty bag includes a 5 year warranty.
