Carpack

The ultimate car organizer that converts into a bag! It helps de-clutter your car, prevents items sliding off car seat and helps carry things out of car with ease! Carpack has one large compartment and several smaller compartments to fit everything you need in a car. Carpack can be placed on the car front seat with easy access to all the items from the driver seat. The top portion of Carpack can be closed and zipped, turning it into a bag that can be easily carried from the car when needed.

Thanks for the valuable feedback, we will work on improving this in the next version. We are several months away from introducing the premium version. The design is complete, waiting for samples currently.

@Creator: How's progression on the new leather model?
.
A bit of feedback from two people who use the Carpack non-stop: My mother's carpack, which gets moved in and out of the front seat nearly every day, is fraying at the straps that go around the headrest. In developing your new models, you might take this into account and try to find a strap/connection solution that will be more durable for constant, every-day installation and removal.
Kavita
Great!!
Tiffany Fordyce
Months after getting mine and more than a month after Mom got hers, and we both still use them every single day!
Kavita
How wonderful!! This made my day :-)
Tiffany Fordyce
So, little story for those interested in hearing. When I first got my carpack, I showed it off to my mother to gauge her reaction. She wasn't particularly excited... kind of 'meh' about the whole thing. I was disappointed, because the second carpack I ordered was for her Christmas, so I was thinking about changing out her Christmas gift for something else.
.
Early in December, though, she had to drive my car around for a while, and my carpack was sitting in the passenger's seat while she did. She fell in love with it! I was so excited, because she kept talking about how much she wanted one and how convenient it was after using it for a few days.
.
Christmas rolled around, and she opened her gift and was nearly jumping for joy at getting her own. It was so much fun!
Kavita
Thanks for the feedback! So glad to hear you are finding it so useful!
jamie frenken
ya know this might be one of the most useful kickstarters I have backed (close to 100). I use it all the time in my work car going back and forth to Chicago is over 100miles each time! it is so indispensable. thanks.
Kavita
@Pascal, we need your phone phone to ship. We sent you several msgs via Kickstarter, pls msg us your phone no. and we will ship asap.
Pascal Brunner
is it normal that mine is still not arrived?
Tiffany Fordyce
@Michael Frose: I'm not sure where it came from, but you might try letting it air for a bit. Take it out of the car, open it up, and let it sit outside for a day or so (but not in sunlight) to give it a chance to air through that smell. If the smell was picked up in transit, it can probably be aired out entirely.
Michael Fröse
Hello Kavita, i am not sure where it comes from.
The smell was there directly after i opened the parcel. It is still intensive if you open the car pack, since i always close the top when leaving the car. Maybe it comes from the transport, if you didn't recognized it. Michael
Kavita
I will email you the instructions. Every box includes a piece of paper with instructions, but looks like a few are missing them.
Lynne Pitts
No assembly instructions and can't find any clear picture on how the pieces go together. Are there some kind of instructions or a clear picture somewhere?
Kavita
@Michael, thanks for the feedback and comments. I am surprised about the smell, we never experienced it in all the units we have shipped so far.
Tiffany Fordyce
@Michael Frose: The burn smell is odd. Can you tell what it's coming from? Mine doesn't have that at all.
Tiffany Fordyce
@Regina G: On the top of this page, click the creator's name. On the new popup view, click the Contact Me button. Use this form to send the creator a message regarding your Carpack problem. This sounds like a manufacturing defect.
Michael Fröse
Finally have my Carpack in the Car. Unfortunatly it smells like something burned. It got better after a few days but is still disturbing if you take it away from the seat. If you try a next batch, please have a look at the zipper. You always need two hands to close the Zipper since it doesn't fit exactly at the edge of the top cover. I love my carpack even with those two points. Thank you
Regina G
Not sure where else to connect you guys-- but my carpack is already tearing apart near the top (Where the pins and the expanded pouch are) and it's exposing the cardboard and foam, I don't think it's going to last very long--is there anywhere else I can contact you guys?
Frank Kelly
There was no instructions in the box nor any paper. Also the white shipping box was partially opened abd then sealed with clear Shoping tape. Can you email me a link to the installation instructions. I am not sure if I received all the pieces. Please lad use all additional pieces to the Car Pack.
Kavita
Frank, we included instructions on assembly and installation with every box. Let me know if your box did not include it.
Frank Kelly
Hi I just got my car pack and was wandering how do I install the insert. Can you send clarification on how this is done.
Kavita
Good to hear and thanks for the suggestion! That's the magic of Kickstarter :-)
Emily Stemmerich
Hi Kavita, so glad that I got my Carpacks this week and just put one of them in my Mother's car this afternoon... She LOVES it!! Mine will go into use next time I do a road trip (for fun). They did come out great. I smile knowing I had input into the addition of the shoulder strap. I still think it would be a great feature to add a slot on the back to enable sliding it over wheeled luggage in some future iteration. Congrats and hope things continue to move forward for you!
Kavita
Thanks! Glad you liked it! :-)

Got the car pack! Great job! Love it and it has helped to organize the car and will help on the next car trip!
Elizabeth Blair
I sent a message, but I'll post here too. I did the $35 tier, for one Carpack. I recieved it in the mail yesterday. However, there was a 2nd package, a larger one, that has 3 more Carpacks in it. So, uh, I have 3 extra Carpacks that I'm not supposed to. What should I do with them?
Kavita
Yes! Already in the works! :-)
Tiffany Fordyce
@Kavita: I just had an idea. Now that you have this design down pat, would it be possible to have this thing manufactured in leather and snaps (where it's normally cloth and velcro)? For those who really want a luxury item, I could see that being a gorgeous one.
Kavita
Great to hear your comments! We are literally waiting to hear comments with bated breath from all our backers :-) Thank you for the support and continued engagement with our project!
Tiffany Fordyce
Got my Carpack yesterday! I put 'built' it last night and put it in the car this morning. Building it was a lot more complicated than I expected, but I pretty much figured it out without the instructions. I feel proud... and just a little silly. But I'm already loading it up with the loose stuff that I have trouble keeping in place from day to day.
.
The only bad thing is that my seat belt does not sit flush with the seat. It actually sits about six inches away from the seat, and horizontal rather than vertical... so strapping the Carpack in was a bit goofy at first. It ended up sort of leveling the Carpack out a bit, though, so I'm not complaining.
.
Thanks so much, Kavita! You put out an awesome product. I'll be giving the second one to my mother for Christmas. Can't wait!
Kavita
2-3 day delivery is for US shipments only. International will be longer.
Kavita
1-2 days to process the shipping, plus 2-3 days for delivery.
Tiffany Fordyce
@Creator: Thanks for the brief update! I look forward to the start of shipping. Once you begin shipping, do you know approximately how long it will take to get everything on the road to your backers?
Kavita
The shipment has arrived on dock, we are now waiting for it to clear customs and other formalities on the port. Its just a matter of days before we start shipping out the rewards. Thank you for your patience! Will send an update as soon as we start shipping.
Edmund
@Creator:
What is going on? We are about entering September. No update. No shipping. What's going on?
Emily Stemmerich
Thanks for the quick reply! No problem for a wait, just like to know that things are still happening! :)
Kavita
Manufacturing is expected to finish July 28th, and it will take about 30 days after that for transit and fulfillment, so we are looking at end of Aug for shipping out rewards.
Emily Stemmerich
Just wondering if there was any update on the manufacturing/delivery of the Carpack?
Kavita
Thanks for your patience! I was hoping to share some manufacturing pics this week, but need to wait a few more days. The process is such that first the fabric is cut at factory, then its sent out for sewing of the logo and the customizations, then it will come back to factory for remaining process. We are expecting the fabric will be back after sewing in a few days at which point we can take some pics and share.
Tiffany Fordyce
You rock! Thanks for the responsiveness! I'll be looking forward to the next update and some pictures of the manufacturing. I'm a bit of a geek like that...
Kavita
Production has started and we are on track for August delivery as of now (not July as per our last update). Will ask our manufacturing partner to share some pics, will post in our next update sometime next week.
Tiffany Fordyce
Hey, Kavita! It's been about a month since your last update. How are things going? Any new photos or videos to share? Are we still on track for July delivery? Remember, your backers want to be part of this process!
Michael Heller
Hi! I'm actually giving this to my dad for his birthday, at the end of July. Any chance I'll receive his carpack before then?
Kavita
We can't wait either :-)
Tiffany Fordyce
The more I read back over the campaign details, the more excited I get about getting my hands on Carpack! It's just too bad it won't be here for my next big trip during the first week of July. I'll have to plan another one just so I have a good excuse to use it when it gets here!
Kavita
Thank you :-) appreciate all the support so far!
A. Magpoc Designs
Congrats on funding! Looking forward to getting a Carpack!
Kavita
Thank you! Yes, these will be available in our website when we get our first shipment in July. Amazon will likely be later this year.
Gary Stadter
Congratulation on the success of your campaign! Any chance these will be available for order on Amazon.com or your own website later this year?
