If you find most everyday backpack designs uncomfortable and a little heavy for your needs, you may be interested in a new air cushioned, lightweight everyday backpack designed by Trexad, aptly named the Air Pack. “From packed-up to ready-to-pack in just one breath. It’s a day pack to revolutionize travel: go further, lighter, and experience more.” Watch the video below to learn more about this unique air cushioned backpack inspired by the air mattress and made for adventurers, travellers and everyday use.
The design team behind the Air Pack backpack explain a little more about its inspiration and design. “We love traveling. And we’ve tried a whole bunch of light day packs in our years of travel and exploration. And all the day packs we tried had something in common: they were really uncomfortable. So we did what any exasperated product designer does: we designed a new daypack. One that still folds up into a tiny ball but expands into a full comfortable backpack.
The next-level comfort is thanks to our patent-pending air-cushioned support system that inflates in just one big breath. It’s been described as like having a backpack made of clouds. Clouds that are gently hugging you for some reason. It might be a bit hyperbolic, but it’s also SUPER comfy.”
When not in use the backpack collapses down into a tiny pouch for easy storing. The Air Pack rucksack is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $69 or £53. If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place during January 2019.
