A hybrid duffel bag and backpack, the Duffel Pack was created by Aer’s team of designers and athletes is based in San Francisco. The utilitarian design combines a work and play so that users can go from the office to the gym without going home or carrying two bags. Minimalist in black, the Duffel Pack is muted and sleek enough for almost any professional scene. At the same time, the bag’s ballistic nylon exterior and 210D interior offer the water resistance, odor protection, and durability that one looks for in a gym bag. The Pack provides padded and slip pockets for technology and books, smaller pockets for anything from pens to earbuds, and a ventilated section for tennis shoes. The main body is spacious enough to hold a change of clothes without being so bulky as a kid’s backpack. An altogether sleek design, the Duffel Pack is currently campaigning on Kickstarter. Successfully funded already, the Duffel Pack is now available from $169.
