A stylish but security-conscious day bag, featuring a prominent and sturdy TSA approved combination lock to keep your valuables safe is the debut release from Australian startup Crocpak®
Founded by Aussie surfer, Tim Bennett, Crocpak® is a premium anti-theft bag born out of Tim’s own misadventures while enjoying time at the beach.
Paddling in from a morning surf one day to find his phone and wallet had been stolen, Tim’s frustration saw him seek a lifestyle bag that can be locked to almost anything.
“I looked for an anti-theft bag to buy but nothing available was genuinely waterproof,” CEO Tim said. “So I created a bag that I would feel confident in securing my valuables in everyday life, from a midweek commute to the city to a weekend hike with the family.”
After months of prototyping numerous designs to ensure the build quality was top-notch, Tim then enlisted product testers to put the bag through its paces before the official product launch.
“The positive feedback I’ve received has been nothing short of amazing. A young mum remarked it gives her peace of mind knowing her bag’s safely secured to the pram when she’s off playing with her toddler at her busy local playground, and, an older gentleman said he locks his bag and valuables as he often falls asleep on the bus. The everyday utility is endless”
Even before the official product launch, Tim was taking pre-orders from eager early adopters. “The North American market has thrown her arms around our little Aussie brand, the response has been overwhelming at times” “I think the almighty USA is ready to travel, ready to hit the road with family and friends, the Crocpak® is the perfect companion!”
Crocpak® is also socially motivated and has chosen a non-virgin plastic approach to both product design and packaging. In conjunction with charity partners, One Tree Planted, for every bag purchased, a tree is planted to assist in the rehabilitation of the Australian forests, after the recent devastating bushfires.
