THE NEW GENERATION OF BACKPACKING

Travel with good looking, smart and multifunctional backpacks. You shouldn’t use a high quality backpack only for one occasion but for several needs: weekend trip, daypack, hand luggage, carry-on, long-distance trip or half photo backpack.

2-in-1: STYLE & FUNCTION

Until now you could only either find good looking backpacks with little function, or very functional but not very stylish backpacks. We wanted to combine good looks with function!

MULTIFUNCTION

Backpacks are usually only intended for a certain need. Our goal was to develop backpacks which you can use for various necessities: Travel, Weekend, Short Trip, Daypack, Cycling or Hiking.

GIRLS NEEDS

Two backpacks for women as loyal travel companions. A combination of good looks, high comfort, many compartments, more security and attractive design.

TWO BACKPACKS
TWO TRUSTFUL COMPANIONS

THE CARRY-ON

Nowadays we don’t only go on the classic 2 weeks long-distance travel, but choose to go on a world trip for several months, get on a plane for a short weekend trip, get into a car for a road trip or take a train to go shopping in the capital for a few days. The fact is: We need to be flexible and we have focussed on that for the Carry-On.

  • SMART DESIGN

    Do you really need a different bag for each type of travel? No you don't. This backpack in hand luggage size looks good in every situation and offers so much function at the same time!

  • MULTIFUNCTION

    Backpack, bag or shoulder bag – it is your choice! Whenever you don’t need your backpack you can simply hide the straps in the back part.

  • MAXIMIZE SPACE

    The extraordinary feature! Should the size of the carry-on not suffice you can enlarge the backpack by an extension with a zipper by 12 litres! In addition you can also purchase a variable hip strap.

  • WELL ORGANISED

    If there is one thing women have in common, it is carrying many small items: cosmetics, pens, cables, notes etc. Those can be stored in the top of the backpack, which has a key ring and is lockable.

  • CURVED PADDED SHOULDER STRAPS

    The backpack should be as comfortable as possible even with some weight. The shoulder straps are adjusted to the female body and the chest clip ensures an even better fit.

  • DIGITAL COMPARTMENTS

    Laptop (15''), tablet and kindle have their own, safe place. Because of their separate pocket at the back they are easily and quickly ready by hand.

  • SHOULDER BAG

    You don’t need your backpack right now? Just switch it around. Both eyelets for the strap are usually hidden and can be easily used. You can also purchase an even more comfortable shoulder strap as an optional extra.

  • SPACE SPACE SPACE

    Everything has its own place. Three interior compartments and four net bags offer a lot of space and tidiness. It is lockable with a lock.

  • JUST A BAG?

    Yes! The handle is strengthened with neoprene and therefore ensures optimal comfort even with greater weight, for when you have to stow the bag in an overhead compartment or the back seat of your car.

ABOUT THE ACCESSORIES

These 3 accessories are part of the Carry-On in the Kickstarter campaign:

PACK SET

4 Bags in One! For liquids, shoes, t-shirts and underwear.

RAIN COVER

The backpack is water repellent but for longer periods in the rain you should use the cape.

SHOULDER STRAP

A robust strap to be able to carry the backpack alternatively like a bag over your shoulder.

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE?

TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Both backpacks were developed by experienced travellers with the specific focus on the needs of travelling women.

GIRLS ONLY

Women are built more slim and often carry more small items, therefore need many small pockets.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL USE

A backpack has to be adjustable to various needs while travelling. It should be practical as well as visually appealing and robust for every use.

QUALITY & COMFORT

Longevity, robustness and multifunctionality had top priority in the development.

SMART & SPORTIVE

Backpacking, Flashpacking, hand luggage, daypack, photography - the backpacks should be optically and practically useable for anything.

MATCHING ACCESSORIES

In addition to the backpacks we have developed other articles that travellers need: e.g. for photography, going out etc.

THE DAILY BACKPACK

The small backpack has to be a multi-talent and a good looking as well as functional companion while travelling: preferably small for a daytrip and as big as possible for your hand luggage, comfortable for carrying it on your back or front, safe against theft, water-repellent for when it rains, and with many pockets for equipment.

  • SMART DESIGN

    Yep, it is supposed to look good. But it is also supposed to be versatile, of high quality, water-repellent, safe and robust enough to have it with you at all times while travelling. At the same time it should have a lot of function, which should not be externally visible.

  • DESIGNED TO CARRY EVEN ON FRONT

    The reversed opening of the top is not only safer but also allows a quicker and better access when you are wearing the backpack in front of your chest. It comes with a hidden pocket and a key ring.

  • MAXIMIZE SPACE

    The extraordinary feature: big role for small backpack! Through an extension with a zipper you can decide which size you need! In only ten seconds you can enlarge the backpack by 7 litres for shoes, camera equipment, swimming gear etc.

  • WELL ORGANISED

    If there is one thing women have in common, it is carrying many small items: cosmetics, pens, cables, notes etc. Those can be stored in the top of the backpack, which has a key ring and is lockable.

  • CURVED PADDED SHOULDER STRAPS

    The backpack should be as comfortable as possible even with some weight. The shoulder straps are adjusted to the female body and the chest clip ensures an even better fit.

  • DIGITAL COMPARTMENTS

    Laptop (13''), tablet and kindle have their own, safe place and are easily and quickly ready by hand. Secured by a big velcro pad.

  • MULTIFUNCTION

    The task was this: How do you combine maximal function with good looks? The result was 13 clever compartments, which do not compromise the optics.

  • SPACE SPACE SPACE

    Everything has its own place. In the middle there is space big enough for a DIN A4 folder, and on the left and right you will find pockets for a charger, a small umbrella or the like.

  • WATER BOTTLE

    Especially in warm countries, on a tracking trip or while doing sports you need a water bottle. You can put one into the flexible outer pocket.

ABOUT THE ACCESSORIES

These 3 accessories are part of the Daily Backpack in the Kickstarter campaign:

THE STORY

First of all: Welcome to this website!

I am Ute and for over 13 years now I have travelled around the world and my blog BRAVEBIRD belongs to the most popular travel blogs in Germany. One and a half years ago I quit my management job and gave up my apartment, just so I could do the only thing that counted: Travelling!

 

On my world trip I realised that in all these years of travelling I had never really owned a backpack, which completely met my needs, neither optically nor functionally. Almost all backpacks – large and small – have one big hole, in which you throw all your stuff. To be permanently looking for your things and having a continuous chaos is simply horrible, isn’t it?

 

This was the moment, which made me want to change something. I contacted popular backpack producers and got together with the German bag company, who have successfully produced high quality bags and backpacks for over 20 years. The development took over 10 months, from which I spent 3 weeks in Vietnam to get an insight into the production and I was thrilled. And here they are, two backpack prototypes for girls and women, which meet all my desires – and hopefully yours too!

How exactly can one single woman handle such a big project? To be honest, I have spent many sleepless nights, was basically web and graphic designer, photographer, cameraman, marketing and PR manager all at the same time but thanks to my blog I was supported by a great community. My female readers have helped me decide on details, some even modelled for me and one amazing editor trimmed my video for the Kickstarter campaign. In the end it became a product made by women for women, which I am very proud of!
