Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Dec 19, 2018 - Jerrybag Inc. announced that it is raising funds via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to finish the development of SHIELD, the only backpack with a polycarbonate hardcover. The company set out to raise $5,000 on Kickstarter to finish development and produce the first batch of their latest invention that is going to change the bag apparel industry. Within 72 hours, Jerrybag Inc. obtained 100% funding on Kickstarter.
The Shield was designed as a shrunken version of the popular larger, hard-shell travel suitcase. Bringing that format to the backpack size, the Shield is perfect for work, play, and travel. The hard-case protects the contents of the backpack by softening and absorbing any impact to it, securing any gadgets or expensive items from damage, while a water-resistant design helps protects gear from inclement weather. The expandable design allows the bag to go from 25L to 35L in capacity, letting individuals carry extra items for a weekend getaway along with regular everyday items. The bag comes with 13 separate compartments, divided between two storage zones, for optimal segregation. A padded laptop sleeve gives laptops reinforced storage, while an easy-access upper slot holds items like a wallet, passport, or ticket. The bag’s padded straps and lightweight design allow it to be carried anywhere with ease, while a luggage-strap helps secure the Shield to a travel suitcase for even better mobility.
I first started Jerrybag Inc. to create bags and accessories that could help support the vulnerable communities in Uganda. After years of research and development, I finally created SHIELD, a premium backpack with a polycarbonate hardcover. Through SHIELD’s Kickstarter Campaign, I hope that our backers can enjoy its practicality and stylish aesthetics and learn more about our company’s mission.
Jerrybag Inc. has announced that for each SHIELD sold, a One+ bag will be donated to Ugandan children who walk extreme distances to find and bring back water to their homes. SHIELD is now available on Kickstarter with early bird prices starting at $98. After the campaign, Jerrybag Inc. anticipates manufacturing and delivery to be fulfilled by the end of April 2019. Any influencers or journalists interested in receiving a sample and reviewing SHIELD are encouraged to submit an inquiry through its Kickstarter page.
