USE PRE-ORDER DISCOUNT COUPON: KICKVIP2
Inspired by the classic barrel duffels of the 20th Century, we set out to design a timeless and stylish everyday carry. The Bomber Barrel redefines style by presenting itself in a modern and simple barrel structure: pure, austere and clean.
The Bomber Barrel is an ultra grade nylon duffel bag designed for you - the athlete, the adventurer, the professional, and the minimalist. It was created to accommodate the lifestyles of the ambitious, the motivated and the driven. With its minimal design, lightweight and black-colored nylon ripstop; its versatility is endless. Its black color creates depth and radiates its bearer’s extravagant elegance.
The Bomber Barrel was conceived out of necessity. We wanted to create a timeless duffel bag design that could be used by anyone, all the time, and be an essential item to take with you to the office, gym, on hikes, and in all of your adventures.
We want Bomber Barrel not to only be used for its functionality, but to match your personal style and be perfect for any occasion.

Although most duffel bags hold what you need for your active lifestyle, they are just too big and heavy. Bomber Barrel, weighing only at 14oz, holds exactly what you need and eliminates all excess. One spacious compartment holds your clothes and shoes, and an interior side pocket keeping your phone, wallet and other small valuables close-by. Be active, be confident, and train HARD with Bomber Barrel.

With its premium nylon ripstop, Bomber Barrel is not only stylish, but also weather resistant and lightweight. It's handheld, adjustable and removable leather padded shoulder strap makes it extremely practical to use. Bomber Barrel is the perfect companion for your most daring adventures.

Designing the ultimate go-to everyday carry was no easy task. Considerations and concepts of a minimalistic duffel bag seemed endless.
Our team spent countless grueling hours, coming up with a duffel bag that is able to accommodate your everyday lifestyle. We had to consider a design that was not only for the gym, but also perfect for the office, city life, outdoors and anywhere in-between. We looked into every single detail to the point where our team was literally working 16 hours per day. From AM to PM, we were redeveloping and improving the conception of the Bomber Barrel.
Additionally, most duffel bags are too big to be an everyday carry; there is too much excess space, weight and clutter. We wanted to design and create a small to medium sized duffel to perfectly fit the essentials you need. We do not need 20 different compartments or 7 different straps and buckles. The Bomber Barrel is a clean and sleek design with an inner pocket, a spacious barrel interior, and an outer pocket. Any additional essentials may be fit into the Mini Bomber Traveler's Kit. This resulted in a 18"x10"x10" barrel structured duffel bag. A duffel that is durable, minimal, and most importantly, functional.

Risks and challenges
If Bomber Barrel is successfully funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing on the Bomber Barrel. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present itself during the process of productions. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule to make you the best damn everyday carry, ever.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We totally agree with you that the international shipping fees sucks. Packages that are shipped internationally tend to get lost. The shipping fee is calculated based on the weight of our product, the packaging, as well as insurance that covers the journey. We will also mark the package as a gift so there will be no customs/duties fee on arrival. We'll be looking into different options of shipping methods and even our shipping packaging for the most effective way to securely deliver the package internationally.
