Kickstarter Highlight: viavia Transit Pouch
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: viavia and their Transit Pouch.
The problem with pouches…
Pouches are a common go-to option for carrying smaller day-to-day or travel items. But while they provide a general catch-all storage space, many pouches don’t go further than that in functionality. There’s no interior organization, so you still have to do some rummaging for items.
On top of that, many pouches are not effectively equipped to deal with the elements, accidental spills and dirt.
So the product designers behind viavia got to thinking, why put up with average pouches when you could have something better? And something better is exactly what they created. The adaptable and durable viavia Transit Pouch.
Flexible internal organization
The Transit Pouch is a versatile, hard-wearing and water-resistant silicone pouch designed to protect and organize essentials on the go. The pouch comes in three sizes to suit diverse carry loads and settings. Each pouch also comes with a corresponding interior organizer (either small, medium, or large) that can be removed for easy packing or to give you the flexibility of using the pouch or organizer separately.
The organizer features a soft pocket for a phone or other tech device, a zipped pocket for coins and valuables, and elastic slots for keeping other items such as cards, cables, small tools and more tidy and quickly accessible. The small size fits standard-sized smartphones, the medium fits all smartphones including plus-sized models, while the large size fits all smartphones or an iPad mini.
Built to tackle any environment
The pouch is made with BPA-free silicone and a water-resistant zipper. This makes it great at handling wet weather, accidental drops in water if you’re venturing outdoors, or general liquid spills when you’re out and about. In addition to keeping liquids at bay, the silicone also resists stains and odors, and is easy to clean. It’s even dishwasher safe too for fuss-free care.
The durable silicone build ensures this pouch will withstand years of demanding use. Take it on your travels, on outdoor adventures, to the gym, or as a handy EDC organizer for work and beyond. The Transit Pouch includes an inbuilt hanging loop that makes it simple to secure to a bag, as well as a removable wrist strap for easy portability.
A pouch for varied packing needs
With its durable, water-resistant build, convenient interior organization and understated aesthetics, the Transit Pouch easily adapts to a host of uses. Keep your travel essentials tidy and within easy reach. Store your toiletries or makeup while protecting the rest of your gear from accidental leaks or spills. Convert it into a first aid kit to ensure you’re prepped for emergencies. Store small tech, tools and accessories for fast access in a larger bag. Or use it as an efficient EDC wallet to protect daily essentials on the go. And with four colorways to choose from, you can pack in personalized style too.
If you want carry organization that’s efficient, reliable, and highly adaptable, get your very own Transit Pouch over at viavia’s Kickstarter campaign, which runs until 26 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.
