Introducing: The Avail Backpack
The Most Comfortable Pack You’ll Ever Wear
Throughout our almost 25-year history of designing bags, we’ve always kept an eye on how to improve the way people carry their gear through the city. Whether it’s bringing industrial fabrication techniques to our ultra-durable messengers or radiofrequency pattern welding to our lightweight, waterproof Urban Ex series, our inspiration for improving the city carry experience can come from anywhere.
When we first set out to create the most comfortable city pack, we cast a wide net. From ultralight backpacking gear to running shoes to industrial architecture, we brought technology, fabrics and manufacturing techniques together to create something truly unique.
Meet the Avail
Knit-woven shoulder straps wrapped around perforated, closed-cell foam are pre-formed to be ergonomically comfortable right out of the box. Stitched interior channels on the inside of the strap reduce surface area and eliminate strap bunching, while exterior-stitched beams reduce torsional twisting to improve stability. The entire shoulder harness measures longer than average to provide an adjustable, natural body fit whether walking or riding.
The WindGrid Back Panel
Dual-density foam, sculpted into a channeled, four-column design that reduces surface area by 25% while improving airflow between the back and bag. Ported sections on each of the columns allow for cross-distribution of air and moisture while maintaining a comfortable structure for all-day wear.
An upward-sloped pack bottom and engineered face maintains structure and reduces sag no matter what type of contents are in the bag for ultimate control without unnecessary extra straps and clips. A ripstop nylon interior features a 13″ laptop sleeve and designed org slots for easy access and retrievability of items when on the go. Three separate fabric options for the face allow each user to choose the style that fits them best.
The 19 Liter Avail Backpack will be available in limited quantities in mid-December with a larger range dropping in March of 2019.
