For many pop culture enthusiasts, the original Bag of Holding was more than just a bag. It was a symbol of adventure, a trusty companion that carried swag from conventions worldwide. But as time wore on, these iconic bags began to show their age, with tape patching up tears and zippers giving way. The need for a revamped, modern version was evident.
Enter Rollacrit, a gaming lifestyle brand formed by former ThinkGeek employees. Recognizing the nostalgia and love for the Bag of Holding, they’ve embarked on a mission to bring it back for the 2020s. This isn’t just a mere reissue; the new Bag of Holding promises to be bigger, more durable, customizable, and, as they put it, more “holdier” than ever before.
Kickstarter Campaign: A New Chapter for Rollacrit
On September 5th, 2023, Rollacrit launched a Kickstarter campaign, marking a significant milestone in the company’s journey. The base tier for the bag is set at $125.00 for early backers, offering a substantial discount from the expected retail price of $175.
This isn’t Rollacrit’s first rodeo with Kickstarter. In 2021, they successfully crowdfunded their pun-filled dungeon exploration tabletop game, Heroes of Barcadia. Garnering support from over 13,700 backers, the game has since seen a widespread retail release. With such a track record, the anticipation for the new Bag of Holding is palpable.
Features Fit for Modern-Day Adventurers
The revamped Bag of Holding isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s designed to be functional and durable. Meeting TSA requirements for carry-ons, it’s perfect for travelers. And for those who prefer a backpack style, it seamlessly transforms with hidden straps in a back compartment.
Erin Zipperle, Rollacrit’s CEO, shared the company’s vision, stating, “When Rollacrit was formed, one of our missions was to resurrect some of our favorite old products with a new twist. We’ve learned a lot since that original Bag of Holding and we’ve put some solid time into research, development, and magic.”
The Bag of Holding is Now Funding on Kickstarter
The success of the new Bag of Holding rests in the hands of its fans. Rollacrit’s Kickstarter campaign is not just about funding a product; it’s about reviving a beloved classic for a new generation. As Zipperle puts it, “We’re ready to bring the bag into the 2020s with a new and improved Bag of Holding, but it can only be revived with fans’ support via Kickstarter!”
