WANDRD, the company known for creating highly-popular travel bags since 2015, has launched the new VEER 18L Pack on Kickstarter – the first packable bag with an inflatable camera cube. It has instantly taken off instantly in popularity eclipsing the $25,000 crowdfunding goal in less than one hour.
“We’re avid travelers and ultimately create the products that we wish we had but can’t find on the market, which is why we developed the VEER 18L Pack,” said WANDRD Co-founder Ryan Cope. “Packable bags on the market are uncomfortable and don’t provide protection for things like camera gear, and the VEER 18L Pack solves those problems.”
Developed especially for short excursions, Cope says the VEER 18L is ideal for day trips, morning hikes or climbs, afternoon surf sessions, grocery runs and whatever other quick side trips come the travelers’ way.
“Every seasoned traveler has experienced the need for a smaller, more compact bag than the one that got them to their destination,” Cope said. “The VEER 18L is the perfect solution – offering a minimalist travel option while traveling or running everyday errands.”
Cope notes that the definition of veer is “to change direction suddenly,” which perfectly described the idea behind the VEER 18L – offering the ideal pack for those side trips while traveling.
The inflatable camera cube offers easy access to camera protection when wanted, and the ability to pack it away when it isn’t needed.
Unlike existing packs on the market, that are unstructured and uncomfortable when carrying anything rigid, the VEER 18L also comes with an inflatable back panel – making the packable bag comfortable and lightweight.
“Our inflatable back panel makes all the difference, adding structure to the bag and, when coupled with our cool air-mesh shoulder straps and removable sternum strap, loads feel much lighter than they actually are,” Cope said. When traveling and it’s not in use, the VEER 18L, sized at 18 liters, packs into itself – collapsing to an easily storable size of 8”x 6”x 3.”
Other VEER 18L Pack features include a water bottle holder, a key clip and organizational pockets – and it’s made with weather-resistant zippers and materials. The pack also comes with a lifetime guarantee.
