Intensive development in the studio and repeated testing continues. With all the feedback from the P7 focus groups, the P8 improvements are worthy of another formal round of consumer testing. The feedback is positive again and it is clear we should move to the next stage - finding a manufacturer. Luke's experience of bag manufacture is invaluable and we have introductory meetings with 3 strong manufacturing partners. The intense collaboration begins with our chosen partner and we start the process of building real samples of the backpack from a real factory.
