“Our goal for designing this product is to remove the hassle and bulkiness of traditional backpacks. Our funding goal for the Sea x Sky pack is $10,000. We were fully funded in under 10 hrs,” reported Mikaella, product designer, in an interview with The Matador Messenger.

The backpack is lightweight, waterproof, compact, durable, functional, and beautiful.

“The Sea to Sky pack was born out of necessity. We designed the pack to be large enough to fit everything we needed, yet small and light enough to conserve space and weight. After going through dozens of prototypes and iterations, we finally created a bag we were happy to call our own,” according to  their kickstarter.com website.

When compacted, the backpack is only 5.5 ounces, and can fit into a pouch/pocket with the size of 4.9” x 3”. When expanded, it has a size of 20” x 11”.

“The outside pocket zipper is reflective to assist in visibility at night; the adjustable sternum strap buckle has a built in emergency whistle; the side pockets are big enough to hold a water bottle; and there are adjustable stability straps to to help with comfort,” according to campingiseasy.com.

The Sea x Sky Pack comes in many colors including Ursus Black, Pacific Blue, Fire Coral, and the new, Kickstarter Green.

“We hit our first milestone today and unlocked the Kickstarter Green color. We are aiming to add other features as a stretch goal such as different colors and a fully waterproof zipper,” stated Mikaella.
