These are some of the most successful bags in Kickstarter history.
At their best, Kickstarter entrepreneurs are experts at identifying consumer needs. Take, for instance, the Bomber Barrel and The Flak Sack™, both designed to address some of the biggest issues people have with their day-to-day and travel bags. In fact, they struck such a chord with the Kickstarter community that users pledged over one million dollars between the two. Why all the interest in a couple of bags? Read on to find out.
The makers of the Bomber Barrel Bag set out to make a classic bag that actually suits our active, modern lifestyles. It may look like a minimalist duffell, but inside, it's designed to organize all the essential items you’ll take on your travels—whether you’re crossing continents or just heading out for the weekend. Created out of tough, water-resistant materials, this bag features small pockets inside-and-out to help keep you organized, and its paracord zipper-pulls add some extra security for your valuables inside. No wonder it's Kickstarter's most-funded bag ever.

The Flak Sack™: The Original Theft Resistant Drawstring Backpack
These days, it’s not enough to simply keep an eye on your wallet—you’ve got to protect yourself from virtual thieves, as well. Good news: The Flak Sack™ has you covered on both. Not only is it made with slash-resistant fabric and a complete locking system, but its RFID blocking technology keeps your credit card, passport, and more from being virtually swiped from the outside. That means you can finally carry your laptop to the gym without worrying about claiming a locker, and you can do it in style.
