In 2011, studioFAR was approached by Pelican to develop their first line of backpacks. After an international search for the right design firm, we were awarded the project after an initial concept round of a hybrid backpack exploration. Thus began a 3 year project to develop the world’s first backpacks seamlessly connected to Pelican’s bomb prof, hardshell cases. The effort resulted in over 11 styles of backpacks kickstarting their Pro Gear product lineup.
Technical Backpack Design + Development
Working together since 2013, we’ve helped Kulkea grow from their first product launch the Boot Trekker bag. Now with over 25 styles in various other markets, Kulkea has become a serious contender in the outdoor industry. We look forward to the future and helping them accelerate growth with innovative new products.
In 2015, studioFAR was approached by a team of engineers who previously worked for one of the largest electronic companies in the world. They were determined to create a backpack that could answer the need for power on the go. This amazing opportunity turned into a 18 month project designing the soft goods around the rigorous demands of the electronic components.
