Airpaq Upcycled Airbag & Seat Belt Backpack

Help save the world and look great doing it with the Airpaq Upcycled Airbag & Seat Belt Backpack. These backpacks are sustainable yet highly versatile. Because these materials are already hard-wearing, the Airpaq Backpack is durable for your everyday. Coming in four colors, the front of the Airpaq features a color panel made of an airbag. The top also uses original airbag material with magnets to complete the rolltop design. The strap holding it all together, along with the back straps, are all made from real seat belts. The back panel also has a unique woven seat belt design. However, because each element is upcycled, no two bags are identical. The airbag, barcodes, buckle shape, and even textile pattern vary from bag to bag. The inner bag is also water resistant so you get extra peace of mind. Completing this urban backpack design is a 21-liter storage compartment to fit laptops up to 15 inches. Not only is this backpack sustainable and durable, but it’s also highly functional. There’s even a hidden zipper compartment in the front.

Hey Lukas, You did not miss it :) We will send it within the next days. We just had to wait until all payment issues of backers were resolved.
Lukas Hansjürgen
Hey Guys, when do you think will you ask for colour option? Or did you already and I didn't notice?
Thank you guys!!! We had an amazing weekend and celebrated the great success of our campaign! Now we are getting back to business, making sure that we will deliver you guys a great product!
Alexander G.
Congratulations guys! I'm already looking forward!
Gratulation! fast 700% überfinanziert! nun aber ran an die nähmaschinen :)
Oh man such a bummer we got so close to the stretch goal!! Are there any options post campaign to make the additional zip pocket a reality? Would really be a nice addition.
Johnny Fung
Congrats for having such an amazing and successful campaign guys� Just curious about the last bag appeared in ur last video abt how we make our Airpaq, is that a red bag or black bag as it looks a bit reddish under the sunlight but was way darker than all the other red bags u guys previously are showing us
Darius Zaerin
congratulations guys! really disappointed we didn't hit 70,000EUR though. if we all donate another 50cent, could we have the internal zip pocket anyway? you can also sell my wallet for funds. i would have increased my pledge, but i can't afford it at the moment. 50cents i can do though ;-)

come on!! just 3 more for the stretch goal!
Thanks Nico for helping out :) Exactly Ade, you can choose the colours like for all other pledges!
hi ade, this quention was answered a little bit earlier but in german so i can answer it for you :) you can choose the color . you have not to take one of each color.
Ade N.
I think this is pretty subjective! I do love the interior, especially from the red one.
Regarding my order I have one question. Can I choose the colors of the 'rainbow collection' or do I need to go with each color once?
Rory Goodbody
I completely agree with you Alexander - this is a wonderful project and I absolutely love the idea of recycling waste into something functional that looks good, and this bag looks great! I'm just disappointed that the two best looking bags have an interior in a style that appears to be pretty polarising, especially when interiors are already planned that would work so well with them. I really do think there would have been more pledges for this campaign if the red and blue bags were available with solid colour interiors. It would have been much better to go with solid colours for all, or at least a design that was slightly less childish.
Alexander Drunin
Guys, seriously, do you really think that after a week with your new backpack you’ll still be complaining about the funny interior with little cars? You’ll get used to it momentarily! This project is awesome as it discovers new value in what was first grimly dumped as some filthy waste. It’s all about creative recycling, humanity and eternal life! :-)
Rory Goodbody
Thanks for the reply. I'm honestly somewhat surprised by the fact that most people love it. You haven't even used contrasting colours (i.e. blue cars in the red bag and vice versa). Surely it wouldn't add much logistical burden to add two extra options? This wouldn't be individual customisation but just offering red with blue interior and blue with yellow interior for those that want it. I would be surprised if these options didn't sell better than those with the cars. I really think you would have had more pledges if you offered these options - I for one would probably have bought a red bag and a blue bag. If you do decide to produce the green bag, a yellow interior would look great.
@Rory. Thanks for your feedback! I totally agree that customisations would be awesome for Airpaq and we would really love to do it. The difficulty we face however is not about the production but about the logistic effort related to it. Without a functioning system it can really be a struggle and we feel its better to not overcomplicate things for our very first production line of Airpaq. Most people who see the cars on the interior in real life really love it, some however do not. Obviously this is a very subjective matter and we hope we can convince you at least with one combination!
@Nico Schmitt: Individualisierung würden wir nur zu gerne anbieten können! Der damit verbundene logistische Aufwand wäre zur Zeit allerdings noch zu groß. Deshalb bieten wir die Kombinationen an, die du auf den Bildern siehst (der rote Airpaq hat als Interior die roten Autos). Hoffen natürlich, dass wir dich zumindest mit einer Kombi zu 100% überzeugen können :)
Nico Schmitt
Ich fände blaues interior beim Roten auch sehr stylisch. Wird es diese Option geben?
Rory Goodbody
It looks a bit unlikely that the €80k stretch goal is going to be reached unfortunately for the green bag! I know you've said before that the interior colours are fixed for all bags, but is there any scope for flexibility on this? The red bag would look stunning with a blue interior, and give that this interior already being produced for the yellow bag it could be achieved without having to make an entirely new interior. Similarly for the blue bag, a red interior would look great, or at the very least the yellow interior that is already being made for the black bag. The cars just look a bit play school. I'll probably go with the black bag if you won't budge on the car interiors for the blue and red bags, but if you were to consider changing your mind then I might even up my pledge to two bags.
Hi Quindecim, glad you like the pocket! We are multipling our marketing efforts and are doing everything we can to push our campaign in the last days. If we see many backers being enthusiastic about the stretch goal we won't be very particular about reaching the exact mark. Implementing the pocket however is an extra cost for us, which we need to compensate (at least partly) by some extra revenue. I am very positive that we will manage to get far enough to make the stretch goal possible!
@Nico: Super! Danke fürs teilen :) freut uns zu sehen, dass die Idee der extra Pocket gut ankommt!
eben nochmal auf facebook geteilt, die extra pocket ist ne nette idee :)
Would be great if there's going to be addition of the quick access pocket regardless of the outcome of the stretch goal! It is a great idea to implement!
@Nico: Freut uns zu hören, dass die Idee mit der quick-access Pocket gut ankommt! Wir werden die letzten 3 Tage die Werbetrommel schlagen und hoffen das Ziel erreichen zu können. Sollten wir es dennoch knapp verfehlen, aber feststellen, dass viele Unterstützer die Idee gut finden und uns dehalb in den letzten Tagen nochmals tatkräftig unterstützt haben, werden wir die quick-access Pocket trotzdem implementieren.
Nico Schmitt
Noch 3 Tage für 10.000 € wird knapp, würdet ihr euren Unterstützern zuliebe wenns nur 65.000 werden auch die quick-acces pocket implementieren? Ich feier die Idee mega da ich darüber auch schon nachgedacht habe, das wär das perfekte Upgrade für meinen Airpaq!
Hey Rory, thats a good question! We will definitely go with an unicoloured lining, most probably blue. But we have not made our final decision there. If we reach the goal we will provide extra pictures and info about the green Airpaq to ease your decision :)
Rory Goodbody
I love the green bag in your new stretch goal! What colour are you planning for the interior?
When will you be submitting the Airpaq for crash testing analysis on the belts and buckles ?
@aq. Das freut uns sehr zu hören :) Ihr könnt natürlich auch bei dem 4er Pack die Farben auswählen. Wir kontaktieren dich nach der Kampagne und dann sagst du uns einfach bescheid welche Farben ihr gerne hättet.
Ist es möglich beim 4er Pack die Farben auszusuchen? ...vielleicht machen wir dann eine Sammelbestellung ;)
@Jeff: Thanks for the input, we really appreciate your feedback. We also found it very high, however this is the average rate we received from UPS and DHL for shipping to countries in South East Asia. However, please note, that 50€ is the shipping cost to South East Asia for two backpacks! For one backpack the shipping cost is 35€. If you have friends, who are also interested in getting an Airpaq you could also consider taking the rainbow collection. You would get 4 Airpaq with an avarage shipping cost of 15€ per backpack (60€ total) :)
Any chance shipping could be lowered to South east asia?. lots of my friends are holding back getting it due to the 50 euros shipping cost!! thats almost half the price of the bag!
Darius Zaerin
... Sorry, I've found it. My bad. 1.2kg for anyone being lazy like me. O_o
Darius Zaerin
Hey guys. Very glad to see the campaign going so well. Sorry if I've missed it, but could you tell us how much the bags weigh please? Other than the seatbelt buckle they look very lightweight, which is good. (But that's a feature I wouldn't sacrifice; out looks fantastic!)
@aq. Vielen Dank, toll das dir unser Projekt gefällt :) Zu deiner Frage: Airbags und Sitzgurte sind aus einem sehr widerstandsfähigen Material. Also keine Sorge, weder Farbe noch Oberfläche werden durch täglichen Gebrauch in Mitleidenschaft gezogen.
@Rob. Dear Rob, we tried to involve many people into our designing process to gain insights and feedback. Some people like the unicolour linings, others love the cars. We are sorry that one aspect of our design does not meet your taste! We of course want our backers to be completely happy with Airpaq. If the other colours with unicolour lining do not convince you either, than maybe Airpaq is simply not your backpack. In any case, I want to thank you for your feedback and for your interest in our venture!
Tolles Projekt und schöne bags! Ist das Aussenmaterial einigermassen abriebfest?
Too bad. Then i'll probably cancel, I dont like the childish cars on the inside...
@Vanessa. Freut uns sehr, dass dir unsere Taschen gefallen! Falls wir so etwas wie Selbstabholung anbieten können, melden wir uns wenn es soweit ist. Auf Kickstarter selber gibt es leider keine Option dafür.
@Rob. Customizations is something that we would really love to offer. The logistic effort related to customization requires however a carefully designed ordering system and is simply sth. we cannot handle at this point. We hope you understand!
Vanessa Ruan
Super schöne Taschen! Sagt Bescheid wenn eine Selbstabholung in Köln möglich ist und ich mir so die Versandkosten (und das CO2) sparen kann. Danke :)
Are we able to choose outside and inside color scheme? I really like the blue colored bag but I'm not sure what you guys were drinking when choosing fabric on the inside...
Das wäre ganz toll, ich fahre Mitte Oktober auf Urlaub und wenn ich ihn dann mitnehmen könnte wäre das natürlich Klasse :D Die Idee ist auf jeden Fall Klasse !
@Nico: freut uns sehr das positive Feedback zu hören. Bezüglich des Zeitplanes sind wir sehr gut unterwegs! Haben schon reichlich Materialien gesammelt und bereiten schon alles für die Produktion vor! Wir geben unser Bestes, die Airpaqs noch früher als ursprünglich angestrebt ausliefern zu können.
Der Rucksack sieht sooo schön aus, ich kann kaum warten ihn zu bekommen :) Wird noch eine harte Entscheidung werden welche Farbe ich will. Ich hoffe Ihr könnt euren Zeitplan einhalten, seit ja schon weit über eurem Finanzierungsziel. :)
@ Roman: Hallo Roman, vielen Dank für deine Nachricht. Sobald die Kickstarter Kampagne zu Ende ist bekommst du eine Email bei der wir nach Farbe des Rucksackes fragen werden und Lieferadresse :)
