Fouru Outerwear – Strapless Backpack System On Kickstarter

The Strapless Backpack System is a project currently on Kickstarter. It utilizes Float Pack technology, a strapless backback system which is integrated directly into select garments, allowing wearers to secure the pack to their person. The funding itself is not for the product, but rather to keep the manufacturing of the system within North America, as it currently is.

    The old Swiss Alpenflage uniform came with a strapless pack that integrated into the jacket with metal hooks, I thought it was a pretty cool feature.

    So you can’t wear the backpack if you don’t wear their jacket at the same time? So if you need to take your jacket off you can’t wear your backback?

    I doubt how secure and stable the system is. Notice how you never see anybody run or do anything more than light hiking with the system on.

    10th Mountain Division (WW II) had a moutain parka with a huge cargo pocket covering much of the back. In the 1990’s this was revived by the Willis & Geiger company, and the catalogue said it was large enough to carry a sleeping bag. The many unique features of this garment were fascinating, and I regret not buying one before W & G was forced out of business by an act of corporate sabotage.

    What this design does is create new problems without solving existing ones.
    Also after watching the video I – Why doesn’t he sell that big ass trailer to fund this project?

    Wow, fuckin’ hatesville on here. It’s a system, it will have short comings. No one is pointing how the positive things about this pack. I was in the Army, stationed in Germany, and had to do a lot of rucking through the forest in snow. I never took my Gortex jacket off while humping my pack, so the system is relative to your intent. Plus, what the fuck have you made?

    outside the box thinking for sure, but you can’t cheat gravity. At most this is just going to offer a little more surface area then traditional shoulder straps, and it looks like more fiddle time when donning and doffing.
    steep price for a) no color options, b) lack of an industry leading fabric/membrane (assumed from omission) and c) no integrated pack bag.

    and just going to say it, that swiss jacket pack SUCKED.

    Hey if you guys check out some of the other videos/website posted you will see that the pack has regular straps that can be used when not wearing the coat. As for the light hiking comment i can say that i have never personally ran through dense bush while stalking my prey. I think that this is a great idea and definitely will be purchasing one once i get permission from the wife 🙂
