VANE: Travel light. Travel cool.

€7,510

Hi. You might remember us from one of our previous - successful - Kickstarter campaigns. We are back, with a third one! This fall, we present you the VANE waist bag.  A pack that does not yet exist. A waist bag that you absolutely want to wear. One you can show off with. We promise.

We are DEW. A one year old bag & accessory supply brand located in the Belgian fashion capital Antwerp. 

July 2018, we launched our first Kickstarter project, which was fulfilled on time. Our first packs were delivered to 121 backers* in over 50 countries. July 2019, our second campaign started, which quickly achieved its goal. Those packs are on their way to our depot, as we speak, to be shipped to 347 backers*. 

* Many thanks to all of you for your support! ❤️  

We discovered that the current offer, of waist bags, does not meet the needs of the urban dweller. Or it does, but at an unreasonable price. So we have created a new waist bag ourselves. We maintained the water-resistant and outdoor aspects, but gave the pack an iconic urban look. A shower of rain is no match for VANE. The VANE pack is not just another bag, it's a statement.

Nowadays, work-life and leisure blend together like no other. With this in mind, this water-resistant pack has been designed for the high-energy traffic between those lifestyles. VANE copes with the commuters issues in terms of comfort, ergonomics, durability, and aesthetics. The bag is weathertight, has reflective aspects, and a premium look. And all that for an affordable buck. Cool, uh?

Meet VANE, the first member of the upcoming Stealth Series.
Subtle during the day, safe at night.
One zipper opening. Many pockets.
DSLR-shooter? We got your back.
Quickly accessed by you. Hidden for them.
Bike-freak? We too ❤️
100% rainproof materials. You don't expect any less, right?

Risks and challenges

KICKSTARTER EXPERIENCE:
This is DEW’s 3rd Kickstarter and we have learned a lot since our launch just over a year ago. Starting a crowd funding campaign is terrifying and amazing, but we are extremely prepared to procure fabrics, manufacture high quality products, and fulfill orders on time. We know what we are doing and you can trust our team’s experience, intuition, supply chain, and fulfillment. The team is fully committed to deliver a product with great value, quality, and technical abilities.

EXPERIENCE:
We have learned a lot about customer service, production and fulfillment since our last project. During this campaign we will be sending out updates regularly and have a robust customer service management team that can answer all your inquiries 08:00 to 18:00 MST. The comments will be answered by David or Jonathan. so you will always be getting an answer from the founders on the comments section — we promise to do our best to respond ASAP!

We are proud to say that our customer service and fulfillment team is a product of the Kickstarter community. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you feel there is something DEW’s team could be doing better, or if you feel there is a wrong that still needs to be righted. We're still learning every day! :)

PARTNERS:
We have secured our manufacturers, shippers and fulfillment centers, all of whom are waiting for us to give them a GO! All of our partners have over 5 decades of experience. All our partners are professional, precise and ethical.

POTENTIAL DELAYS & UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES:
With all of this being said, we must note that unforeseen complications do occasionally arise. Natural disasters, accidents or a zombie apocalyps are unavoidable.

We’ve constructed our timeline with reasonable buffer for unforeseen events, and the VANE bag will be insured throughout every step of its arrival to your doorstep.

DEW has a keen understanding of the fact that delays in the fashion industry are sometimes inevitable, so our anticipated delivery dates are conservative estimates. If all runs smoothly there is a chance you will receive your bag earlier than expected!

LOCAL DUTIES, TAXES & FEES:
Some international backers will be subject to local customs import duties and taxes; these backers will be responsible for covering all of their local customs duties and taxes. In certain cases the prices of your rewards along with the cost of shipping may be included with the duties / taxes / fees assessed on your shipment.

Import duties and taxes are not covered by this Kickstarter campaign or by DEW. Furthermore, DEW is not responsible for any customs, duties, taxes, or any other import-related fees associated with receiving your DEW order.
