Kickstarter Highlight :: Lander Carry System
Crowdfunding is fast becoming the world’s go-to platform for new releases. But do you ever find it hard to cut through the noise and pin down the ones worth your hard-earned? Well, that’s where this new sponsored series comes in. We’re vetting carry Kickstarters for you, digging up the facts, and shedding light on the ones we think are worth a closer look.
This week’s selection: The Lander Carry System.
Keep your tech safe and snug in the outdoors
Delicate tech and the rugged outdoors. It’s often a struggle bringing the two together, with unpredictable weather, scrapes, drops and bumps all ready to wreak havoc on your precious devices. But the Lander Carry System sets out to solve this problem, combining waterproof and padded tech storage with outdoor durability and functionality.
The primary pieces in the Lander Carry System are the Traveler and Commuter backpacks. The 35L Traveler backpack is well suited to weekend getaways and short trips, while the 25L Commuter backpack is a handy size for everyday use, from the daily commute or campus to evening activities.
Both packs offer two separate storage compartments: the Crash Pad for tech devices and the main Cargo section for your travel and personal items. The Crash Pad delivers peace of mind with a trusty TPU-coated ripstop fabric, water-resistant zippers and taped seams to ensure the elements don’t rain on your parade.
Foam padding in the Crash Pad protects against impacts and a choice of three compartments keep your tech devices tidy, including a 17″ laptop compartment. In addition, wireways between the compartments (referred to as the Hot Route) allow devices to be easily charged on the go by storing a power bank in the Crash Pad.
The Cargo section is the main storage space in both packs and is constructed with durable DWR-coated Cordura EcoMade for water resistance. With the Traveler 35L backpack, the Cargo section is a versatile rolltop design that accommodates a range of loads. The Cargo section can unzip completely for full access throughout, or alternatively unzip the side only for convenient access to your gear without having to undo the rolltop closure.
Pockets aplenty keeping you tidy
Both the Traveler and Commuter packs are loaded with pockets to keep your gear organized and easily accessible when you need it. Exterior front and top pockets are useful for stashing items such as sunglasses, trail snacks and maps, and other small EDC items. You’ll find two external water bottle pockets on the Commuter pack and one on the Traveler, along with compression straps for bulky items like a tripod, yoga mat or sleeping pad.
Inside the Traveler pack is a zipped pocket that’s handy for storing dirty clothes. And your kicks are kept well away from clean gear courtesy of a separate exterior shoe compartment. Top and bottom grab handles also make it easy to maneuver the bag in tight spaces or over short distances.
For an extra functionality boost both bags also include reflective detailing on the zipper pulls and logo.
Accessorise your adventures
In addition to the two packs, the Lander Carry System also includes accessories to help you stay organized whether you’re outdoors, traveling, or commuting in the city. The water-resistant Lander Kit is a tri-fold Dopp kit that can store toiletries or tech accessories. The 2L Kit folds compactly for storage and unfolds for convenient access when hung up. Frustrated with rummaging for small items? Not a problem with the Kit, as a range of pockets are on hand to keep smaller items within easy reach.
Additionally the system also features the Parcel, a 10L collapsible packing cube that can be carried in the packs or secured externally. The Parcel includes an exterior pocket and is a useful accessory for storing anything from clean clothes to dirty laundry or carry-on flight essentials. As an added bonus, the Parcel folds up into itself for super compact storage. The Traveler pack fits two Parcels and one Kit, while the Commuter fits one Parcel and one Kit.
Freedom to roam with tech in tow
The Lander Carry System brings clean, practical and protective style to outdoor adventures. No need to leave your tech behind, and no need to worry about it while you’re on the move. And with convenient organization and durable builds, these packs and accessories easily handle a host of demands beyond the beaten path.
