About


The Timenoten Smart Backpack is a versatile commuter backpack made for the modern professional, complete with waterproofing EVA material and anti-theft Bluetooth locking.

TIMENOTEN presents the toolkit for an urban atmosphere, a bag designed to cater for the products of our modern digital age. With their ultra-lightweight design and protective functions, our bags make your commute easy and stress-free- and we think that a smooth commute creates a better day. 

Have you ever experienced discomfort with backpacks on crowded buses, subways and trains? 49.3% of respondents answered yes (Source: Dot Survey). Backpacks become a nuisance as you struggle to stand on the bus and worry about the safety of your things. 

With this in mind, TIMENOTEN bags are just 9cm thick, manufactured for easy transportation. Our bags won’t change size unlike conventional polyester bags which will naturally bulge and become uncomfortable halfway through your commute. TIMENOTEN’s sleekness makes weaving between busy crowds a breeze.

 The TIMENOTEN slim backpack features an EVA hard-shell exterior that can take one hell of a punch. Rest assured that your laptop is always protected through the everyday impacts of a busy environment.

 TIMENOTEN has prepared separate compartments for storing all of a user’s belongings, from a laptop to a USB-Type C charger, all without changing the shape of the bag. This multipurpose pouch is detachable, helping you store smarter for a smoother day.

The bag’s fully detachable wall can be opened out to 180 degrees, acting as a mini-suitcase at your wish. Or, reattach the wall for a conventional backpack style, making TIMENOTEN your universal carrier.

Conveniently keep credit cards, travel passes and earphones within reach.

Commuting to work is stressful enough during rush-hour, but trying to shield your bag from the busy crowds makes it that bit harder. Our anti-theft Bluetooth lock is the ultimate solution. TSA approved, these locks are impenetrable and theft-proof. 

 The Timenoten app can wirelessly unlock your bag via Bluetooth. With your uniquely generated password, no one else can connect to your lock. Open your bag in a matter of seconds with one swipe of your finger. 

Take action immediately if your bag is ever lost or stolen. Our locks are trackable using GPS capabilities, so you’re always protected.  

Our mechanical locks are more than enough for a user simply wanting that added protection on the go. Similarly TSA approved, these locks allow you to set your own password so you can take precautions against theft at anyplace, any time.  

Liquids will slide off the EVA shell meaning you don’t have to worry about rain, snow or coffee permeating your bag and damaging your laptop.

Our bag’s matt black colouring and sleek design make it both stand out and blend in. TIMENOTEN is conscious of urban style, ensuring our bags are efficient without ever looking heavy. The style can look perfect at work, on a night out, and on holiday- it can’t be overused.

 TIMENOTEN’s design is not purely for aesthetics. We designed our bag’s solid shape to help you develop a habit of supporting a consistent, shaped weight every day. Finally, a bag that beats the poor posture caused by conventional polyester sports bags. 

Back therapy is essential for fixing poor posture, but so is correct shoulder placement. With our adjustable, fastened shoulder straps, TIMENOTEN bags evenly distribute the weight across your shoulders through a combined effort of the rectangular body and lightweight materials. 

 As well as providing excellent shock absorption, our 3-layer Honeycomb Mesh material is breathable to prevent back sweat and ensures a comfortable carry. Don’t worry about bringing that extra shirt to work.

Timenoten was founded in Shanghai in 2015. In one of the world’s busiest cities, we realised how hard it is for the average commuter to travel to work without their possessions being squashed on a busy bus or soaked in a random monsoon. We asked, where are the backpacks providing the security of hard-shell suitcases, without adding unnecessary weight and strain on the back?

Since then we have been committed to improving the urban experience. We want our customers to be stress-free on their commutes. That means travelling flexibly and being happy that your laptop is safe on your back- so these have always been our priorities. The Timenoten Backpack provides all the comfort and security needed for a smooth commute, but we are already researching how to improve for our next product. We are 100% open to our customers’ feedback so that our next product can be better catered for the urban environment. Your contributions will be used to develop follow-up models, as well as funding our marketing and development costs. Your funds are also being used to setup a stable distribution network after funding, to ensure the bags are delivered to your satisfaction, and to ensure a developed customer service network to assist with any future customer concerns.

Our Timenoten Slim Backpack was launched in Japan through its most famous native crowdfunding platform. After it enjoyed a successful campaign, we were able to launch the product in South Korea after extensive market research and our expertise in Waders, Korea’s largest crowdfunding platform. This means we have heaps of experience with this particular product, and we hope to make our third campaign bigger and brighter. 

Risks and challenges

We have seen countless amounts of Kickstarter projects raise hundreds of thousands of $$ and fail to ever ship what was promised. With what we have already learned from our Timenoten campaigns in Japan and Korea, we can guarantee a near-flawless fulfilment of what we promise. This is because we have months of experience already in the delivery of crowdfunded projects, and we have been able to prepare risk assessments for countless foreseeable issues.
