Improved Closure Design + Zippered Closure Option!

Hey all!

We love doing these projects. BackerKit's slogan "backers make it better" has definitely been our experience over the years, and we're getting lots of stellar feedback both from backers and folks in our community who are still considering joining the project. We were able to come up with a really elegant solution for a couple of the most discussed items. Details below:

1. Snap Closure

Some folks pointed out that they would prefer if the snap closure flap laid a little more flat. We were able to adjust the position of the snap holes very slightly to put just the right amount of tension on the flap.  The results were awesome - check it out!

2. New Zippered Closure Option

One of our most popular requests was a for a zippered closure, and we were able to complete that design today! We love how it came out. Everyone will now have the option to choose their preferred closure style in the post project survey! No need to make any changes to your existing pledge to have this option.

How to add to your pledge - A complete guide

We've gotten lots of requests for clarity on how to add to your pledge. Either for an add-on, the 4 add-ons for $40 deal, or folks who want multiple bags. We want to make that as easy as possible.

Since BackerKit doesn't currently support add-ons, we're using an old trick from other platforms. It goes like this:

  1. Manually add to your pledge amount for the additional items you would like (see instructions below). 
    • If you are pledging for the first time, you can skip to step 3 on the instructions. 
  2. The credit for these items will be waiting for you in the post project survey.

The last thing we want is to give you math homework! So we put together a list of totals you can just grab and use. Note that we're using sizes only for bags here, because the messenger and mailbag of each size are the same price. If your ideal pledge isn't on this list and you want to make sure you're pledging correctly you can reach us at service@allegorygoods.com or by commenting on this update - we're happy to help!

  • 2 Bags (Regular + Regular): $338
  • 2 Bags (Large + Large): $378
  • 2 Bags (Regular + Large): $358
  • Regular Bag + 1 add-on: $181
  • Regular Bag + 4 add-ons: $209
  • Large Bag + 1 add-on: $201
  • Large Bag + 4 add-ons: $229

Modifying your pledge will not effect your early bird bonus if your initial pledge was in the first 48 hours.
