Kickstarter Highlight: Boundary Errant Pack
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 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: Boundary and their Errant Pack.
Bounding forward fresh off success
Boundary sent serious buzz through the carry community with their Prima System. A class act that enjoyed monumental crowdfunding success and scooped our Best Camera Bag award. And fresh off their success, they’re turning their attention to a new offering. A slick bag that fuses the magic of their first offering with a more compact size. And, at $110, it scores crazy high in the value stakes!
Meet the Boundary Errant Pack.
Built to go wherever you do
The Errant is a 24L everyday carry backpack that moves seamlessly from the office to day hikes or photography use. The sleek, minimal design combines quality construction with an adaptable design to tackle a variety of day-to-day needs. Made with bluesign® approved materials and factories, the pack features a durable blend of 500D DuraMax Kodra, Hypalon and a Barricade DWR coating for water and stain resistance. And with weatherproof YKK zippers for added protection from the elements, you can roam with even greater peace of mind.
Talking of roaming, the pack is also designed to keep you carrying in comfort. The contoured harness is complemented by a quick dry air channel on the back panel, and corrugated LFT channel foam that’s antimicrobial and breathable. And with a waist strap and adjustable and removable chest strap on hand, you can enjoy added stability as required.
Organization for work, play and everywhere in between
Sleek features and considered functionality make this pack well suited to daily work needs, with water-resistant workspace storage for your tech and work tools. You’ll find space for both a 17″ laptop and 13″ tablet, with a nifty R.M.L. strap to secure tech on the go.
The Errant Pack features a magnetic flap and zipper closure, which allows flexible access depending on your needs. Simply close it with the magnetic flap for speed, or zip it shut first for added security.
But the pack also takes access a step further with a clamshell opening that provides easy access throughout the main compartment. The main compartment accommodates a variety of gear to suit changing needs, from lunch and an outer layer, to gym gear or extra work tools. Here you’ll also find further pockets to keep small items organized and at the ready.
A further thoughtful feature that enhances the pack’s functionality is the separate 6L wet/dry compartment at the base of the bag. This compartment is both odor and moisture resistant, ideal for storing the likes of shoes or dirty or wet gear away from the rest of your belongings.
And if you simply want rapid access to essentials on the go? No problem. A choice of quick-access exterior pockets keep the likes of a water bottle, tripod, wallet, keys, phone, passport and more within convenient reach.
Focusing in on modularity
For even more flexibility the pack can be partnered with camera modules to keep your precious photography gear protected and well organized on the move. The 2L CB-1 photo insert is well suited to smaller setups. Designed to dock magnetically in the pack, it combines water-resistant fabric with a crushproof shell and interior dividers.
For larger photography setups, Boundary have designed the 4L MK-2 photo case. The crushproof case fits inside the pack’s main compartment and secures in place with Velcro channels. It features a choice of pockets and dividers to keep your kit tidy and safe on the move.
Additionally, the pack can also be used with other current Boundary accessories such as the Port Kitt which also docks magnetically, the HT Key Clip, and Hemp Laundry Bag. So you can easily tailor your organization for whatever the day has in store.
Added features for added value
Boundary could stop while they’re ahead with a great design. But their dedication to quality and value shows with added features to make this pack even better. Hydration bladder compatibility. Top and side grab handles for convenient portability. Plus a gear strap that keeps the shoulder straps low-profile in more formal settings or serves as a luggage passthrough sleeve during your travels. Little details that make a big difference to your EDC.
A great deal on a dialed-in design
The Errant Pack does a great job of combining the elements that made Boundary’s first offering so successful into a pack that’s ideal for versatile EDC use. From the convenient magnetic hardware and stylishly minimalist aesthetics, to durable and sustainable construction, handy access and thoughtful organization, this is a pack you can reach for time and time again to fulfil a wide range of urban and outdoor needs. And at an Early Early Bird price of just US$110, it’s a steal. Make it your own by heading over to the Boundary Errant Kickstarter campaign which runs until 11 August 2018.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
