We started with a classic roll-top rucksack that we love for its minimal, mid-century good looks and rugged stamina, then added the best modern features to make it easier to use on an everyday basis, no matter where life leads you. The Rally is the most versatile, vintage style backpack in the world.

A pack has to be dependable, we needed a pack that would have our back. We're hard on our bags, after destroying a bevy of nylon backpacks, (some lasted just a few months,) I knew I needed something with more staying power, the materials and construction had to be right. All of our materials are picked based on one factor, longevity. 

Instead of having one bag for work, another for travel, and a different bag for each activity you do, what if one bag could serve you well in almost every occasion? This pack is the Swiss Army Knife of bags. No matter how you're dressed, where you're going or how you're getting there the Rally Pack will back you up!

Pack Animal's roots are in the motorcycle community, this backpack easily mounts to your seat, or sissy bar, or can be carried comfortably while riding.
Store your laptop, cables and chargers in convenient interior pockets and keep your drink handy in the exterior side pocket.
Ergonomic shoulder straps, padded back and sternum strap make the Rally a breeze to carry on your commute. Get to your other gear easily with the sling and zip function.

Almost four years ago, with the help of 279 backers, Pack Animal was born right here on Kickstarter. Pack Animal specialized in making high quality luggage for motorcyclists in small batches using the best materials and craftsmanship.  Thousands of people came to love the brand for their attention to quality and customer service. 

Earlier this year the founders of Pack Animal decided to close shop, for good, to pursue other interests. Enter Tobacco Motorwear Company... 

Tobacco launched on Kickstarter in 2014 and since then has grown to be a force in the motorcycle apparel industry, focusing on products that are fashionable and functional, including three successful Kickstarter campaigns. 

We have been fans of Pack Animal from the beginning and rather than see Pack Animal go away for good, the Tobacco team is re-launching the brand and with your help we can expand the line and continue to bring you amazing quality backpacks and bags for all your adventures.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks involved with manufacutring a new product. We have learned from past projects and are much farther ahead in the process of choosing a factory to manufacture the Rally Pack. We know how much it will cost and we know all of the materials going into it. Things can pop up, but we have done our absolute best to ensure that we can deliver the product we are promising, in the timeframe we are promising.
