Kickstarter Highlight: NOMATIC Messenger and Laptop Bags
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: NOMATIC and their Messenger and Laptop Bags.
Not just another messenger and laptop bag…
From travel bags to everyday backpacks, NOMATIC are dedicated to creating highly functional and versatile gear that shifts perspectives on what carry can achieve. So when they decided to put their minds towards creating a messenger and a laptop bag, they knew they had to raise the bar. And they did.
Meet the NOMATIC Messenger and Laptop Bag.
Everyday features that simply make sense
NOMATIC worked hard to create a feature set that really works well together, helping you make the most of your EDC with intuitive and adaptable functionality. The 10L Laptop Bag is ideal for carrying the essentials, while the 15L Messenger provides extra space and additional features for larger loads.
Both bags feature a durable, weatherproof construction that will keep your gear well protected from the elements. And with their lifetime warranties you can feel confident these bags will keep going strong wherever the day (or night) leads.
Carrying portability forward
To take carry comfort to the next level, both pieces feature custom magnetic Fidlock strap buckles that provide 360-degree rotation for maximized user comfort. Additionally, a spring-loaded compression buckle makes it quick and easy to adjust the strap to your preferred length. And if you don’t want to use the strap? Simply remove it and carry the bags briefcase-style using the top handle.
Clutter? What clutter?
Tired of having to rummage around in a jumbled mess of bag contents, untangling a twisted ball of cables or rooting around for keys you’re sure were in there somewhere? Sit back and relax. Thanks to multiple pockets and wide-opening main compartments, you’ve got plenty of organization options and easy access to your gear. There’s even a lockable RFID safe pocket, removable protective shell for glasses, and a retractable key leash.
The Messenger and Laptop Bag also include a document pocket and a TSA-ready 15″ laptop and tablet compartment; handy for zipping through airport security. Speaking of travel, the bags feature a luggage passthrough sleeve too, making it simple to secure to rolling luggage. Added bonus? Reflective detailing on the bags provides enhanced visibility at night, helping you stay safe on the go.
Sending a message your bag can do more
The Messenger shares the Laptop Bag’s features but also offers extra features for further functionality. The self-standing bag comes with two removable Velcro panels, namely an organizer panel and customizable compartments panel for tailoring carry setups to changing needs.
Other useful additions such as a magnetic bottle pocket, top quick-access pocket, and cord passthrough system all play their part in making this a great bag for work, play and travel alike.
Rethink your daily carry
NOMATIC are no strangers to crowdfunding success, and have lots of experience delivering practical and adaptable gear to their backers. With their fifth successful product launch they’ve smashed their target yet again, but you’ve still got plenty of time to get involved in the good stuff. Enjoy what really considered carry can do for you by picking up a NOMATIC Messenger or Laptop Bag (or both!) over at their Kickstarter campaign which runs until 21 April 2018.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
Above are the facts, but there’s always a little risk when backing a crowdfunder, so keep that in mind before you decide to back/purchase.
