Today I received the production sample with the latest changes and I am super happy about the final result.
During the Kickstarter campaign, I did sent a few samples to the best backpack reviewers and experts in the the business to get valued feedback.
I have also read every single email with your suggestions and I am now excited to show you the production sample.
The shoulder strap will be a little softer and less stiff - super comfy!
In the previous sample, there were 3 layers in the strap: ATILON in the upper layer, EVA in the middle and PU below. ATILON was a bit stiff, so we removed this and slightly increased the hardness of EVA.
EVA is by far the best foam that can be used in a shoulder strap. It is a durable foam with high density. You'll immediately realize if it's EVA when you squeeze the strap and it springs back against your pressure.
We have increased the back panel 2 cm, which distribute the backpack more evenly now on the back and feels just great.
We added a bit more volume to the inner pockets.
The tech pouch will be a bit thicker and he will have several pen holders.
I walked around all day with the new DAYFARER and he is incredibly comfortable. Even when it is full, it feels like the DAYFARER is hugging you ;-)
