About

       

 

Vacanza was originally inspired by the military duffle that was designed back in the 60's. Since then, its style has remained the same. So, we wanted to design a modernized military duffle, but still maintain its capacity, function, and spirit. We began by adding suspension that are often seen in cars to leverage weight for a truck-size bag so that it feels like a compact car when you’re carrying it. But that’s not enough. We went further into detailing openings that are accessible by you but no others. And when you’re in a trip, you can entrust that this bag will be strong enough to withstand the harshest conditions and the journey beyond you. At the end, we believe designing a DAMN good bag that will excel in performance and represent it's orginality.

Here we like to introduce you, the Vacanza, The Ultra-Performance Bag for Vacation.

Vacanza's on its way!

Current Destination - Malibu

 

 

 

 

 

The Vacanza is designed to keep your items safe while traveling. For each of the various carry options, theft prevention features have been addressed to give you peace of mind while away from home.

The German-designed magnetic Quick-Lock buckle made easy for you to unlock it but difficult for others if they don’t know the trick. Combined with YKK water-resistant zipper for ultimate security and peace of mind.

 

 

 

For long vacation travel, you’d need a backpack that’s larger than usual. With a whopping 44 liters of capacity, it is capable to carry:

Meets domestic and international carry-on standards

 

 

 

Lightens your heavy cargo, reducing overall body strain and defies gravity

Vacanza is equipped with our patent-pending Zero-G suspension system that absorbs and balance weight to prevent the sore shoulders and aching bags that travelers usually endure with large capacity bags. The straps are ergonomically designed and manufactured to hold up under even the most aggressive use.

Regardless of the intensity of your adventure, Zero-G technology will unburden your shoulders and smooth out your ride, delivering an unparalleled, gravity-negating backpack experience.

 

 

The Vacanza's hybrid design makes it ideal for any travel situation. For quick access and casual use, carry it like a duffel. For longer hauls, free up your hands and strap it on your back.

As a duffel, the side zipper opens the main bay so you can quickly load in your apparel and goods. Multiple compartments and inner mesh pockets allow you to organize your smaller items.

It can be quickly converted into duffel mode by unclipping the shoulder straps and tucking them into their dedicated pocket. It is your new favorite backpack and duffel in one.

 

   

Another benefit for having a duo-entrance design is so you can access your laptop from the top entrance with ease. An EPE padded laptop compartment protects your laptop against shock and impact. A heavy-duty elastic strap securely holds down your laptop in place.

Besides storing the shoulder straps, the large back pocket is also a perfect place to store your important documents or iPad Pro to protect them from bending and scratching.

 

 

We like simple designs, we’re also big believers on finding the perfect balance between Less and More. Having too many pockets could be confusing, you might be fumbling through all the pockets to find the things you need. With two quick-access pockets in the front, one large back compartment and one heavy-duty hook strap, your frequently need items are all within reach.

 

 

Vacanza is made with sturdy premium PU leather that is scratch-resistant, weatherproof and cruelty-free. The bottom is enforced with EVA pedestals for increased strength. Extra bold stitching creates a rugged look and reinforces construction. We want you to never have to worry about your bag falling apart. This bag will last for a long time.

 

 

We didn’t forget it needs to look good on you, and don’t worry we are good at it. All KP products have been carefully sculpted to create the perfect streamlines. With the modern minimalist design, it will match whatever you’re wearing and will never be outdated.

Risks and challenges

If the KP Vacanza bag is successfully funded we are extremely confident we will be able to produce the bag and have it to backers by March 2018. 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.
