ProGo was born in Kickstarter in 2016. With our first successful campaign, we have shipped over 2000 bags to our incredible backers and other fellow travellers. Today we are excited to bring you our most epic travel bag yet, The ProGo 2.0 Travel Bag.
Why I created ProGo?
I like to travel light. It is easier and lighter to carry just one backpack, and quicker by skipping the baggage claim section at the airport. But how can one carry all the necessary clothes, shoes and accessories including laptops and tablets in just one backpack? They just do not fit, unless you take a bulky luggage and drag it everywhere. That is just not me. To overcome the hassles and nightmares of luggage dragging, pack / unpacking, and having to jumble clean and dirty clothes with shoes; I have decided to create a very simple and unique travel backpack to solve all these problems and to be able to travel neat and clean; hence, I created ProGo.
ProGo Travel bag is designed for a 3-7-day trip. By combining the best features from a day pack, camera bag, laptop bag and luggage, we have created the ultimate travel backpack to your best traveller’s and photographer's companion. The ProGo Travel Bag has over 20 features that make it the most functional travel bag ever. On top of being packed with incredible functionality, ProGo bag has a sleek minimalist design, is made of strong all weather-proof materials and is built to travel millions of miles with you.
Removable Shelf System
The main difference between Progo and conventional backpacks / carry ons, is that Progo has a built-in shelf which allows you to transfer your clothes from the bag to a closet or vice versa in seconds.
You can carry up to 7 days worth of clothing!
Dedicated Shoe Compartment at the top of the bag

Risks and challenges
We have already found and worked with a very reputable bag and luggage factory that has helped us making our prototypes and our first production batch that have already been delivered for to our previous successful Kickstarter campaign. The communication with the factory had been smooth and fast, which reduces the risks of manufacturing and delivery time substantially. Nevertheless we have set the delivery time in October of 2018 to make sure that all backers will receive their bags on time as promised. This will give us more time to overcome any problems that might occur during manufacturing or delivery.
To ensure that every bag is created to standard and delivered in time, we will be maintaining constant contact with the factory during the entire process of production. No matter what, we will update our backers during the production.
