Backpack Number Two...and Product Testing

First, meet Backpack Number Two. I made the first one for my husband's trip to South America back in February, and it got a great response, so R is R decided to refine the design and add it to our product line. Round Two features a tapered lid for a less bulky roll, all the buckles and straps are sized down for better functionality and less weight, and we added a whistle clip to the chest strap. It still has the signature spacesuit-looking shoulder straps, small interior pocket, and weatherproof design.

This pack is still in the development stage. I'm happy with the direction it's going, but it's not there yet. The only way to improve the end result is to keep turning out prototypes until I'm totally satisfied with the design. Which is going to result in a lot of backpacks piling up around my house unless R is R can find some R & D assistants.

So, in exchange for some performance feedback, I'm offering a hearty discount on prototype packs like this one. This deal is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you've always dreamed of being a product tester, contact me now for all the dirty details:

  1. well, you know that OF COURSE I will invest in prototypes. I also just suggested another new product on your FB page. And there's still that dog collar I'm waiting to invest in! :)

  2. I would love to product test for you! I've been jonesin' for a pack like that!

  3. when will these lil beauts become available to the general pop.?? Kind of gettin impatient. But, alas I will wait...and wait...and just covet TC's!

  4. Sanders, you can totes get in on the gear testing gig if you want; there's still a couple openings left. Just say the word....otherwise I'm hoping they go live by the fall.
