THE VERTEPAC

The VERTEPAC is a revolutionary backpack system based on the patented Parallel Spine-technology that will help you accomplish your ultimate performance!

The Parallel Spine mimics the mechanics of your body; it takes the load off your shoulders and allows your body to move smoothly and freely. You can turn, twist and bend in any direction without feeling the load on your back! Making it the ultimate backpack for sporters and active travelers.

3 CORE ADVANTAGES

Freedom to Move

The VERTEPAC's Parallel Spine gives you full freedom to move with whatever you do. It turns, twists and bends, just like your own spine!  No limits, no constraints.

Effortless Carrying

The Parallel Spine relieves your upper body for 95% of the daypack’s load! 
The VERTEPAC's comfortable 3D-rotational hip belt that can be extended downwards to transfer the load onto your hips. So say goodbye to a painful back and cramped shoulders!

Modular System

The VERTEPAC is designed as a modular system. Once you have the basic carrying system, you can easily connect other bag units within a minute. You can choose from bag units for sports, traveling and commuting. Adapt it to your style and needs!

THE TEAM

The VERTEPAC is developed by a small team of designers and manufacturing specialists lead by Jeroen Janssen and Stanley Sie. Two passionate and dedicated creative professionals with one single mission: to bring you the smartest ergonomic traveling gear out there.

Our team is specialized in designing, developing and producing technical bags and works for brands such as BMW, Honda and Yamaha. Starting from the initial design sketches up to the delivery of the final product to the client.

We’ve been working on the Vertepac for more than four years and we are excited to share it with the world. We firmly believe that spending time outdoors makes people happier, healthier, and more balanced. We see the Vertepac as an tool to explore, to push your boundaries and stay connected with nature. We hope your Vertepac will inspire you to do just that!

 

FUNDING

We have the know-how, the experience and a reliable manufacturing network to make the VERTEPAC a success. The only things missing are the resources for the required tooling and the first production run. Back us and you will be the first to receive world's first daypack with its own spine. With your support, we can start producing the next generation of daypacks!

TIMELINE

All parts have been defined in CAD / production sheets. We have tested, developed and refined the design in numerous iterations. Now, we are in the final stage before production. The next steps will be:

  • JUL-AUG: Optimizing design for production / Purchase fabrics and materials / Making the molds and tooling
  • SEP: Collecting purchase materials / Testing fabrics and materials / Making pre-production samples
  • OCT: Checking pre-production samples / Production 1st batch / Quality check
  • NOV: Assembly / Packaging / Transportation
  • DEC: Delivery

FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS

  • Developing a new range of pac units
  • Business travel pac TRV.40 (travel) 
  • Large capity sports pac XTR.45
  • Camera pac for photographers
  • Multi-use strap system
  • Camera mounting system

DISCLAIMER

All of the prototypes shown in the photos and video are fully functional and tested, but details shown may change in the final product development and manufacturing.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

We want to express our sincere gratitude to those who’ve helped us get to this point. It has been a huge team effort. Thank you all for your support!

Risks and challenges

We have spent 4 years developing the VERTEPAC into detail and have made many prototypes before arriving at this pre-production stage. The latest prototypes have been tested thoroughly and are fully functional.

Therefore we do not expect major changes during the production phase but optimizing the parts for production will require some adjustments on detail level. We working closely with our manufacturing partners en review regularly to keep delay to a minimum. The delivery of the VERTEPAC is scheduled for shipping in December.

The VERTEPAC team is specialized in design, development and production of technical bags for brands such as BMW, Honda and Yamaha. We have the knowledge, experience and production network to deliver high quality technical engineered products such as the VERTEPAC.

We feel confident and expect to deliver the VERTEPAC to your doorstep in time for you to hit the snow!
