Introducing the DUO Daypack...
With your help, we were born right here on Kickstarter almost 4 years ago. After 5 kick-ass campaigns, nearly $2 Million in funding, and successfully moving out of dad's basement (literally), we’re stoked to be back with our latest solution for commuters, creators, photographers, and travelers who want more out of their gear.
The DUO Daypack is a dawn-to-dusk, daily carrying beast that was tirelessly designed to go from work to play… to play to work… to work to work… to play to play… or whatever else you call your daily grinds, errands, and passions.
WANDRD wasn’t born in a boardroom and it isn’t the brainchild of some serial entrepreneurs looking for the next “big thing”. No, WANDRD was born from two brothers who weren’t satisfied with the status quo. And while we've grown into a thriving team of passionate travelers, photographers, and creators (and a couple of smart asses), the same principles that founded our company run strongly through our veins.
Our mission is simple: to inspire people to get out and live passionately; exploring, creating, and living life in the moment. We just happen to do that by creating the world’s best gear.
Is there anything more frustrating than digging through every item you own just to find your headphones at the bottom your bag? Well, yes... actually... there are things that are much more frustrating. Like slow internet or kids sneezing directly into your open eyes. But it still sucks, right?
With our radical, new InfiniteZip™ system, you get the opening of your choice – which means no more digging for what you need, no matter where it’s located.
Our bags have won awards for their innovative functionality, and the DUO is no exception. We’ve invented a protection system that pops into place when needed, and just as easily pops out of the way when it’s not in use. Pretty neat, eh?
The protective POP cube is a multifunctional space for a variety of tech and photography items. We have also included a padded EVA foam divider that can be adjusted to snuggly fit your camera, lenses, drone, shoes, or other gear.
We've also built in dual padded expansion pockets, made out of a dense EVA foam. Perfect for small cameras, hard drives, lenses, and anything else that needs extra protection.
Don't let the sleek and minimal design of the DUO fool you, the inside is an organizational beast. Most bags turn into what we like to call a black hole, and finding your phone charger is like trying to keep track of a 5-year-old at Disneyland. But no more. With pockets, pouches, and organizers galore, you never have to wonder where your kid, I mean, phone charger is ever again.
Most people tout quality, but few back it up with a no questions asked lifetime guarantee. And we can afford to do that because everything we do — from the materials we use to the way our bags are built – is the best of the best.
While we don’t recommend you taking a power washer to your bag, we did it for you in the name of science. And you know what? The DUO came out dry as a whistle. What does that even mean, "dry as a whistle?" Nobody knows, but it's provocative. But seriously, do you know who does know? The DUO does.
If you would like to pledge for more than one DUO, just add the dollar amount to your pledge. Ex. If you want to purchase 2 DUOs at the Early Bird pricing $175, you would pledge for $350.
Our dual airflow back panel is made of molded EVA foam with built in dual airflow channels for maximum breathability and comfort.
The DUO is built out of a waterproof 840D Jr. Ballistic Nylon with a newly developed 5pm coating and weather resistant YKK zippers. Not only do they withstand the toughest of environments, but they're also damn sexy — kind of like Bear Grylls.
Dual grab handles are made of nylon seatbelt webbing, making them soft to the touch, tough as nails, and comfortable to hold.
This campaign is promoted by Backercamp. Since 2012, Backercamp has helped 5,000+ creators make their projects a reality, raising over $275MM through crowdfunding.
Risks and challenges
We worked relentlessly during our previous campaigns (from vetting manufacturers to fulfilling orders) and we were able to ship our bags on or before our promised date every time! On this campaign, we will work with the same calculated professionalism to ensure that our bags are delivered as promised.
We do know in life and in business there are always unforeseeable risks and challenges, and we are committed to put forth every effort to do right by the customer if or when these situations arise.
We want this bag as much as anyone else and won't stop until we deliver the best daypack on the market.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
