Hackpack easily converts into a backpack, briefcase, messenger, and sling. Wear it like a backpack on the way to work and switch it to a briefcase for the office or boardroom. Creator, Kimberly Wu is a woman in tech who realized the need for a product that looks good but also has high utility.
Hackpack is perfect for individuals who take multiple forms of transportation to get around. According to the National Household Travel Survey data from 2001 and 2009, "65% of Americans report taking at least one walking, biking, or transit trip each week, in addition to driving. Of these, 80% reported walking was their only other mode of travel."
"I often saw my colleagues entering boardrooms wearing backpacks and thought it looked really out of place and too casual," explains Kim. "I couldn't find the work bag I wanted, so I decided to make my own. A bag that looks good both in and out of the office." Kim reached out to her brother Ed, a seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneur, for help.
The Hackpack is available for presale only on Kickstarter until December 20th, 2016.
Founded in 2015, Kimberly Wu and her brother Ed Wu teamed up to create sleek designed products for the high-tech business world. They chose the name Hackpack deriving meaning from the concept of 'Life Hack,' where a person adopts a strategy or technique to accomplish something in a more efficient way. Their philosophy is to create clever solutions to fix common problems. Hackpack breaks the "corporate" mold with highly practical and functional design.
