THE REASON I CREATED PROGO
I like to travel light. It is easier and lighter to carry just one backpack, and quicker by skipping the baggage claim section at the airport. But how can one carry all the necessary clothes, shoes and accessories including laptops and tablets in just one backpack? They just do not fit, unless you take a bulky luggage and drag it everywhere. That is just not me. To overcome the hassles and nightmares of luggage dragging, pack / unpacking, and having to jumble clean and dirty clothes with shoes; I have decided to create a very simple and unique travel backpack to solve all these problems and to be able to travel neat and clean; hence, I created ProGo.
ProGo is an intelligent & versatile travel carry-on backpack / luggage that meets all of your individual needs in one bag. Whatever your destination, whatever you need to carry, whatever mode of transport you take, ProGo will meet your needs.
Progo is compact and yet spacious
The 35L backpack can easily accommodate a week's supply of clothes, a pair of shoes, a laptop and tablet, toiletry, personal accessories in their dedicated compartments as well as passports / valuables in the hidden pocket at the back.
The main difference between Progo and other backpacks / carry ons, is that Progo has a built-in shelf which allows you to transfer your clothes from the bag to a closet in seconds.
Why is ProGo unique?
Progo is no ordinary backpack. It's got 4 main features that NO other carrying bags have:
1- Integrated removable shelf
Here is how you pack a Progo:
2: Hang it in your closet and fill it with your clothes
3: And put it back in the bag
ProGo is the only bag that has a built in removable shelf. With this unique feature, you can transfer your belongings from Progo to a closet in less than 10 seconds!
Everything will be just as you packed them back home. Nice and crisp.
2- A separate shoe compartment
Keep your dirty shoes away from your clean clothes
3- A safe hidden pouch at the back of the bag
You can keep your passport and valuable belongings in the hidden back pouch that will be impossible to reach when carrying the backpack, making sure that you will have a safe and smooth journey with your ProGo.
4: Bluetooth Device Tracker
Never lose your bag in the crowd
ProGo is also made of durable waterproof tarp material that will keep all your belongings dry in all weather conditions.
ProGo's name clearly says it. It's for people on the Go. Whether you are traveling around the block or the planet, ProGo will be your gear.
ProGo is a bag large enough to carry all your needs and compact enough to be a carry on
PROGO AND YOU
Why is ProGo right for you:
Because you travel
Because you create
Because you explore
Why the 1st prototype failed?
The first ProGo progotype had small separated external removable bag for toiletry and the shoe compartment was placed at the bottom of the bag. After using this prototype, I realized the 2 main issues.
First the removable bag was not holding strong and kept on falling. Also it made the bag thicker, so I could not fit it easily in the plane carry on compartment. The second issue, with the shoe compartment at the bottom; the bag could not stand straight. It was always leaning and falling because the top part when full was heavier than the bottom part. So I was forced to re design and recreate a second prototype which you see in this video and the pictures.
By moving the shoe compartment to the top, and ditching the removable bag, and making an internal toiletry pouch instead; the prototype proved to be right and working perfectly.
Here are pictures of the Final prototypes
The right side of the bag has a bottle mesh pouch and Tripod / Umbrella holder straps. The left side of the bag has a small accessory / key pocket, an extra handle as well as a USB cable outlet.
The back of the bag that has the hidden pocket. Sunglasses holder and ear bud mesh pouch on shoulder straps
USB cable outlet
Toiletry bag at the front of the backpack
Mesh pouch for cellphones or ear buds
Laptop / Tablet compartment with lots of business accessory / pen holders
What's Progo Made of?
Progo will be built with heavy duty waterproof tarp nylon fabric (these are the materials that trucking companies use to protect goods from getting wet) , water proof sealed seamless zippers with over size pullers and nylon strings, as well as padded frame/ walls and straps with durable and strong nylon webbing. Progo has been designed to last millions of miles.

Risks and challenges
We have already found a very reputable bag and luggage factory that has helped us making our prototypes. The communication with the factory had been smooth and fast, which reduces the risks of manufacturing and delivery time substantially. Nevertheless we have set the delivery time in May of 2016 to make sure that all backers will receive their bags on time as promised. This will give us more time to overcome any problems that might occur during manufacturing or delivery.
To ensure that every bag is created to standard and delivered in time, we will be maintaining constant contact with the factory during the entire process of production. No matter what, we will update our backers during the production.
