This current run has ended, but there are more recent runs for Barracuda Konzu: The World's Most Advanced Backpack. Click here to go to the most recent run.
Imagine a backpack that can wirelessly recharge its built-in battery pack when you're home and charges your gear when you're on the go, one that gently alerts you if you accidentally leave it open while walking around, locks all key zippers at the push of a single button, keeps your info secure with RFID-shielded pockets, even acts as your camera mount when you want to take a picture; and, looks sleek and beautiful in your choice of great colors and so many thoughtful features.
Now stop imagining it — and help us bring Barracuda Konzu to market.
From the creators of the ground breaking Barracuda Carry-on that raised 1.2 million on Kickstarter - Konzu: The World's Most Advanced Backpack.
On your own you'd have to pay $242 to join the Kickstarter campaign and get your product shipped to Singapore. Compare that to $188.90 you can get with Kickstarter when we hit a minimum 10 orders. That's 21% DISCOUNT right there. Sweet.
Do note we'll be placing orders in groups of 10. Each order comes with 1 Barracuda Konzu Backpack (any colour) and 1 Basic Wireless Charging Stand. Scroll to the bottom to see the costs for the available upgrades.
So what are you waiting for? Join the hunt and share this with all your #edc friends and let's get this hunt rolling!
These days, you’d expect any smart backpack to come with a built-in battery pack, and Barracuda Konzu is no exception. What’s revolutionary is that ours can be wirelessly charged. Simply place Konzu on its patent-pending wireless charging stand, and top up Konzu's 10,000 mAh battery pack — without meddling with messy wires. You can even leave your tablet or phone inside the bag plugged into Konzu's internal USB port to charge it along with the battery pack.
All three version of the charging station will charge Konzu's built-in 10,000 mAh battery fully in 8 - 10 hours. Leaving your tablet or phone plugged in inside Konzu could increase the time by 2 - 4 hours depending on the battery capacity of the device left inside.
The Premium Wood-Dual Charging station will, in addition, be equipped with a transmitter on its left shelf that can charge a Qi compatible device (or one with a Qi compatible case) in 8 - 10 hours.
One Standard Wireless Charging Station will ship with every Konzu.
The battery pack is removable & interchangeable. It can be charged directly via USB like other battery packs.
Barracuda Konzu’s revolutionary Push-2-Lock system is the ultimate solution to pickpockets. Without compromising on usability with awkward hidden zippers or having to individually lock each zipper — Konzu's 4 external zippers (2 main and 2 pockets) can be secured with the push of a single button on the strap.
The lock can be engaged with zipper pullers in any position with no power source required. Pressing down/up the lock will instatly lock/unlock the zippers in any position.

Ever find you’ve been walking with an open bag, just ripe for pickpocketing? Barracuda Konzu takes smart to a whole new level with integrated sensors that detect and alert you if you walk off with your bag open. Along with our Push-2-Lock system, this provides two-factor protection when you’re on the move.

No more awkward selfies. No more odd-man-out group shots. No more needing to find a good Samaritan to take a picture of you and your special someone. With Konzu’s detachable camera mount add-on and accompanying Bluetooth camera clicker, taking a photo of yourself or your group couldn’t be easier.
The camera mount monopod attaches securely to an adaptor affixed to the bottom of the backpack, making it very stable. In addition to taking a selfie or a group (a “groupie”?) you can attach a GoPro and capture all the action on a hike or bike ride with ease.
The camera mount includes: A telescoping adjustable stand, attachments for phone/camera (like GoPro), adaptor affixed to the backpack into which the stand docks and a bluetooth clicker that works with Android and iOS.
Open every door in style—without ever misplacing your keys again. A perfectly located key pocket and heavy-duty retractable cord. This will also work well with scan cards and key fobs to get in and out of secured doors.

Pokémon Go draining your battery? Or need to make that important call and your mobile phone is almost dead? Fear not: Konzu’s external US port is all you need. It’s built-in, 10,000 mAh wirelessly charged battery pack will keep you on the move long after your mobile devices would otherwise konk out.
Need a place to stash that windbreaker or bike helmet, and there’s no more room in the backpack? No worries. Our expandable strap system gives you the extra little bit of storage you need to get your go on, in style.
That’s right. Hit the security line without having to dig out your laptop and throw it in a tray. Just unzip the TSA-approved laptop sleeve and your Konzu conquers the conveyor belt with everything intact and ready to zip up and go.
Skimmers can scram. The Konzu’s RFID-shielded pockets keep your personal data safe and secure. No breach at the beach. No treachery on the morning train.
Who says you have to sacrifice style for comfort? Not Konzu, which comes with padding that makes even the heaviest of backpack loads a breeze. Konzu's pads are also designed to maximize airflow to keep your back cool and comfortable. You’ll wish everything in life came with padding like this.
The backpack can easily be attached to the handle of a carry-on —especially if you have a Barracuda carry-on.
