👋🏻 Welcome to Grouphunt    Learn how it works!

Our experience lies in product design, development, R&D, and manufacturing for the likes of GORUCK and Patagonia.

Kickstarter will allow us to deliver on our promise to let product development drive EVERGOODS.  By not taking outside investors - the design room is the board room and the board room is the design room.

Introducing the EVERGOODS CROSSOVER backpacks

EVERGOODS backpacks bring an attention to fit, function, durability, and detail that make them thrive in both outdoor and urban environments.  100% designed, developed, and tested in-house in Bozeman, MT.

Why CROSSOVER backpacks?

We aren't pro athletes.  We are normal guys who have been working in the outdoor and lifestyle industries for a combined 20 years.  We have designed backpacks tough enough for the harshest environments known to man.  We love to get outdoors and get after it but we are husbands and fathers leading busy lives. When we do get outdoors we want durable products that work, that have the same attention to fit, function, and detail as outdoor specific gear but have an aesthetic that looks and performs just as well around town.  So we created EVERGOODS.

Sizing

 

EVERGOODS by the numbers

1%

We are partnering with an extraordinary land conservation organization : The Gallatin Valley Land Trust.  1% of gross revenue will go towards their efforts  protecting open spaces and cultivating the incredible trails in and around Bozeman, MT.  We figure we will start where we know we can make a difference, right here in our own backyard.  

Please note that per Kickstarter guidelines, we cannot use this crowdfunding project to raise funds for charity.  We are ecstatic at the prospect of making EVERGOODS a reality so we can begin giving back in a meaningful way.

2%

Making stuff in America is expensive.  We believe the added cost to manufacture is worth our ability to maintain a consistent in-house presence at our manufacturing partners' facilities.  As a result, we can work inline with their quality and production teams, to help ensure that all EVERGOODS products meet the highest quality standards.  It takes a village to make great product.

100%

We do all product development in house and by hand.  This is only possible with the proper tools and machinery.

Here is what it looks like:

  • Build the design brief (we both review and sign off)
  • Source and begin testing all raw material and trim needs
  • Explore the brief via 2d line illustrations (we both review and sign off)
  • Work with card stock paper to build 3D models (as many rounds as needed, review then sign off)
  • Use 3D models as starting point to create patterns
  • Cut fabric and build first sample
  • Test in the field (by us and other users)
  • Review sample 1
  • Explore any adjustments via 3D models 
  • Transfer adjustments into patterns
  • Cut fabric and sew second sample
  • Wash.  Rinse. Repeat.
This work is difficult, like really difficult, time consuming, and expensive.  We do it because we love it and because we believe it is the only way to arrive at product this thoughtfully considered.  It also makes us better partners for our raw material suppliers and manufacturers.  In the end it is the only way to ensure a culture of R&D that is at the heart of EVERGOODS.
