Kickstarter Highlight: Tillak Siletz Modular Carry System
Ever heard the words ‘waterproof backpack’, dug into the design a little, and discovered the primary feature is the waterproofness? Not a bad thing in and of itself, but it can leave things lacking in the design potential. A standard backpack that’s waterproof is alright. But a highly versatile backpack that just happens to be waterproof is better.
Well, the latter is what Tillak have spent a year and a half developing. And now they’re ready to show the world.
Meet the Tillak Siletz Modular Carry System.
Embracing the system
One bag can’t effectively do everything. But with a carry system you can meet a wide range of needs. So Tillak developed a modular system that caters to work, travel, photography and more. The base of the system is the Siletz 35L backpack. The 100% waterproof pack features quick-access pockets for convenient access to smaller essentials and a removable waist belt.
To protect your tech the system includes a modular Laptop Sleeve. The neoprene sleeve fits up to 15″ devices, with two pockets to store smaller items. And with its MOD.U.LOX® hardware you can easily remove the sleeve from the backpack with the push of a button.
If you plan to travel with the pack or want to carry a photography setup, the Travel/Photo Insert has you covered. The Tricot-lined insert includes removable dividers to customize it to changing kit. Plus it adapts to photography setups, travel gear or a mix of both.
Complementing your travel setup is the Night Bag/Gear Pouch, which features two interior dividers for organizing toiletries, small accessories or other travel essentials. The pouch also features MOD.U.LOX® hardware for easy inserting or removal from the backpack.
For ready access to small items, the modular system offers the handy Shoulder Pouch. A weatherproof pouch that conveniently secures to the backpack’s shoulder strap to keep your phone, small camera or other essentials within easy reach.
Want to keep wet or dirty items away from the rest of your gear? The 25L Wet/Dry Bag Insert is your go-to solution, allowing you to store anything from wetsuits to sweaty gym gear or dirty shoes. Or you can switch things up and store valuables or dry/clean items inside away from the rest of the backpack’s contents.
And for those times when you want to kick back with a refreshing beverage for some good old R&R? The Cooler Insert is your chilled companion. The waterproof and airtight TIZIP® opening prevents leaks and the insert is designed to keep drinks cool for over 48 hours.
The efficient modular system easily keeps up with busy lifestyles and changing needs. But Tillak wanted to go beyond efficient design and focus on the entire product experience. Considering not just how it works, but how it’s made. So they used rugged Cordura and bluesign® certified materials and hardware for sustainability and durability from the get-go.
Additionally, as part of its Goods That Give Back™ program Tillak will donate 25% of profits from the sale of the Tillak Siletz Modular Carry System to Native Fish Society’s Landslides to Logjams Campaign. The campaign aims to stop irresponsible timber harvesting practices and watershed destruction and is a fitting choice for Tillak, a Certified B Corp passionate about protecting the environment.
Exceptional versatility for everyday and away
The Tillak Siletz Modular Carry System offers more than just waterproof storage. It’s a system that integrates seamlessly into your lifestyle. Ready to go where you go and carry whatever you need it to. Whether that’s taking on a drizzly commute to work, exploring the outdoors by kayak, traveling or looking for that extra piece of mind when carrying your camera kit. If this kind of versatility is right in line with your needs, head over to Tillak’s Kickstarter campaign to make this all-in-one carry solution your own.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
Above are the facts, but there’s always a little risk when backing a crowdfunder, so keep that in mind before you decide to back/purchase.
