Kickstarter Highlight :: Piorama The Adjustable Backpack
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: Piorama and The Adjustable Backpack.
Recognizing a carry problem
When your travel bag is already full, trying to squeeze in that last-minute souvenir can be tough. Of course, you could get a larger bag for trips…but you may find yourself hauling a lot of excess bag bulk when you don’t need to pack as much. Then there’s other carry needs too. A bag to carry your EDC essentials. A trail companion for a local day hike. A gym buddy to stash your workout gear in. You could pick up a variety of bags for different needs, but you’ll quickly find your costs adding up and your storage space shrinking. Or you could turn to The Adjustable Backpack for a versatile one-bag solution.
Getting more out of one bag
The Adjustable Backpack from Piorama gives you carry flexibility across various loads and environments. Instead of many bags for some uses, the pack offers one bag for many uses. So, how does it do it? Through a versatile cinched design on either end that allows the bag to expand or contract depending on your needs. A choice of three volume sizes lets you adjust the bag to 31L, 46.5L, or 62L. Expand it when you need to haul a lot on your travels, or cinch it down to a compact EDC pack for carrying work supplies, gym gear, or groceries.
Useful features for multiple uses
The Adjustable Backpack is constructed with durable and water-resistant 900D Nylon, complemented by weatherproof zippers for added protection against the elements. The pack includes top and side grab handles which come in handy when you need to move the bag over short distances or in awkward spaces. Use it every day, for weekend trips, in the outdoors or on longer travel excursions. Wherever you need to carry gear, this pack can help you get it there.
Lockable zippers on the main compartment are a useful security deterrent if you need to check the bag in during your travels, while quick-access front and side pockets are convenient for stashing small travel essentials or EDC items within easy reach. And the bag doesn’t forget about your tech either, with dedicated storage for a 15″ laptop.
Another successful campaign in the bag
This is not the first time that Piorama have stepped into the carry ring. They successfully crowdfunded The Adjustable Bag. And with that valuable experience under their belt, they’re ready to deliver again with The Adjustable Backpack. The campaign runs until 24 September 2017 so there’s plenty of time to get in on the action. Check out the Adjustable Backpack Kickstarter campaign to add great adaptability to your carry setup.
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.
