When the Aer Duffel Pack was first launched on Kickstarter in 2014, it smashed through its original goal a couple of times over. Now the San Francisco-based Aer announced a new version of the popular bag. Better, larger, and comfier, Duffel Pack 2 maintains the same minimalist and elegant design of the original. Which means that it looks good anywhere, from the gym to the office and around the city. Completely redesigned to offer more functionality, the new duffel pack comes with a larger main compartment and a larger shoe pocket that also features improved ventilation. New pockets include an easy-access one for everyday essentials and multiple interior pockets as well as an accessory compartment with a key ring attachment.
A padded mesh back panel and ergonomic shoulder straps with an improved design ensure more comfort, while side and top handles provide more options to carry the bag around town. Duffel Pack 2 also comes with a water-resistant Cordura ballistic nylon exterior, YKK Japanese zippers, and an expandable water bottle pocket. Bag colors include black, gray, and navy. Launching on August 15, the backpack is now available to pre-order on the Aer website at a price of $170. Photographs© Aer.
