Traveling smart is on its way to become easier and more stylish than ever thanks to the innovative Travel Pack designed by Aer. Founded in 2014 in San Francisco, the company has launched the hugely successful Duffel Pack on Kickstarter the same year and the project surpassed its goal almost three times over. The Travel Pack takes things global. This carry-on backpack is specifically designed to meet the size requirements of domestic and international air travel, meaning travelers will not have to worry about changing bags as they go around the world or stress about their bags getting caught in the lost luggage purgatory. Created with functionality in mind, the Travel Pack has a compact suitcase shape and a convenient clamshell opening that offers full access for easy packing. A separate and ventilated shoe compartment provides a practical solution for keeping footwear and dirty laundry away from the main contents of the bag. Various pockets and compartments allow for smarter organization, from smaller pockets for essentials and an easy access yet secure document compartment to a suspended laptop pocket and an expandable water bottle holder. Straps and a mesh material guarantee optimum comfort, while the innovative compression straps ensure the backpack can be also used as a daypack. Just as stylish as it is functional, the Travel Pack has a chic and minimalist design that makes it a must-have for international travelers and urban commuters in equal measure. The Kickstarter campaign surpassed its goal within the first day, reaching almost 500%. You can become a backer to receive the backpack at a reduced price; the first backpacks will reach their owners from November 2016. Images courtesy of Aer.
