KP Duffle - The Ultimate Travel Bag

$624,474

When it comes to design there is nothing quite like an exotic sports car, not only do they look stunning with their gorgeous shapes but they’re also built to perform as awesome as they look. This was our inspiration for our newest bag; KP Duffle. We wanted to make a bag that not only had a stunning appearance but offered functionality/performance that was second to none.

Most duffle bags on the market either have a square or cylinder shape but for the KP Duffle we wanted to create something that has never been seen before in travel bags. We wanted the shape of the bag to evoke the same feelings you get when you see a Ferrari speeding down the highway.

However we also paid as much attention to how the bag functions as we did how it looks. With custom features like a ventilated shoe compartment, utility hatch, internal mesh pockets, etc. this bag is chocked full of awesomeness. Plus we used super high-quality materials so it will last you a really long time.

 The Secret Compartment

We've designed a passport sized secret compartment somewhere in the Duffle to store your important belongings. This compartment is so hidden that it's virtually invisible. We can't release the location of the secret compartment here, because then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore. Detail information can be found on our update #8 (Backers Only).

The KP Dopp Kit was designed to perfectly fit inside the KP Duffle. This sleek bathroom bag is made of a high-quality PU leather exterior and has a bright interior featuring multiple mesh pockets. Keep your gels, pastes and everything else you need to get ready for the day neatly organized, while also keeping everything outside of the Dopp Kit protected from potential leaks.

KP is all about good design that makes your life easier. Our new MultiPen combines a ballpoint pen, tablet stylus, laser pointer and flashlight; all the essential tools in one elegantly designed pen. With the KP MultiPen you'll never need to fumble around for the tool that you need.

  • A durable rubber tip that won’t scratch the screen of your device and allows the user to type accurately
  • Black ink rollerball pen for smooth, crisp & clear writing
  • A laser pointer that projects up to 500 yd / 457 m
  • Ultra bright LED flashlight
  • Body made of solid copper with matte finishing
  • Weighted and balanced for a smooth and delicate feel

Our new custom interior is a pattern we designed called InfiWave. Using an unique heat press technology; the subtle wavy lines changes under different lighting condition, creating an optical-illusion effect that makes the KP Duffle one of a kind both inside & out.

This bottle set is designed to perfectly fit inside the KP Dopp Kit. It is ideal for shampoo, conditioner, aftershave, toner, lotions, etc. Meets TSA carry-on guidelines which makes your security screening process easier. Retail price $8 (Free for All Duffle Combo Pledges)

One pump bottle (2oz / 50ml), One spray bottle (2oz / 50ml), One spray bottle (2.5oz / 70ml), One squeeze bottle (2oz / 50ml), One squeeze bottle (2.5oz / 70ml) and One mini funnel for easy refill.

Minimum Order Quantity: In-order to produce the KP Duffle with a quality manufacturer who has experience with major brands, we need to give them a production order large enough so that they are willing to produce the bag and at a cost which will make it affordable for most consumers.

Tooling: Some of the components including custom hardware require an investment in tooling for volume production.

KEEP PURSUING is a small design start-up based in Los Angeles, CA. Our motto is "Outfitters of the Modern Adventurer" as we strive to create quality bags and gear specifically designed for people who live, work and play in urban environments. We truly love what we do and put that passion into every project/product.

Risks and challenges

If the KP Duffle Bag is successfully funded we are extremely confident we will be able to produce the bag and have it to backers by this Summer – 2016. All parties involved from material wholesalers, manufacturing company, etc. are ready to go. The funds raised are going directly into the production/manufacturing of the bag. Though we do not see any direct risks, there is always unforeseen circumstances that may present themselves during production. However it is our #1 goal to get you a quality bag you are excited about, and we will do all in our power to make that happen.
