Designed to adapt to the needs and different activities of active urban dwellers, the X-PAK bags take multifunctionality to another level. Made by Los Angeles-based company Code Of Bell, the bags provide a convenient everyday carry solution that suits the modern lifestyle perfectly, but especially those who alternate between city living and exploring the outdoors. X-PAK (pronounced cross-pack) feature an ingenious vertical rolltop feature, a sling design, as well as two separate compartments.
The bags easily expand when needed; the X-PAK Pro from 10L to 17L, while the X-PAK goes from 4L to 7L. Both come with a US-made waterproof laminated fabric, weatherproof zippers, strap pockets, quick access pockets, and a breathable mesh nylon material on the back. Pro features a large pocket for a 13’’ laptop as well as an expandable bottle pocket, while One boasts a padded sleeve that perfectly protects an iPad Mini and an optional Bike Strap to convert into a bike bag.
Notable features also include the various ways one can carry the bags (cross-body thanks to the sling design, on the shoulder, or by hand, to name a few) and the clever rolltop and buckle system that allows the user to quickly transform the bag from compact to spacious. The company launched the bags on Kickstarter, with the campaign already a success story. You can become a backer until December 18 to save some money on the future retail price and receive your own bag in June 2018. Photographs© Code Of Bell.
