Nothing better than a sweet sack. Although, a smart, sweet sack may be the ultimate combination. A collab between two design students and Green Guru, this travel bag system looking for Kickstarter funding has a ton of potential.
They say: “After going on a few trips that included air travel mixed with outdoor excursions and unexpected journeys, It has become clear to us that there is a need for a bag that can function just as well in flight as it does upon arrival. So we set out to create the Stand-by travel bag system; a versatile, durable, modular bag that adapts to the user’s needs. We wanted to design a sort of “opensource” bag that allows travelers to pack the way they want. The interior compartments that make up the Stand-by do not contain any permanent pockets. Instead, we have provided the option of a removable organizer that can be added to either bag, or it can be forgone altogether to create additional freedom in packing. We have also included optional “stuff-sacks” that can be easily attached for more initial packing room or left empty and added on further into the trip to accommodate new items such as new clothes, souvenirs etc.”
They’re close to their goal with only 4 days left to go to their May 31, 2015 end date. I’d love to see how this bag evolves so check out their Kickstarter page and buy some sacks.
