Men seem to like to carry lots of stuff in their pockets, and sometimes they have too much stuff and need a bag. But many men have aversions to bags that are much smaller than a laptop bag or to bags that don’t look like they can be carried into war. Sometimes neither of those styles are appropriate – laptop bags can be too big to just run around town for errands and tactical bags don’t look appropriate for work. Bolstr, a current Kickstarter project, wants to be just right – not too big nor small, and not too much like a purse. Bolstr has an asymmetrical design, which the designer says “eludes the man purse stigma”. It has a slim design that can expand to hold extra items when needed. There’s a sunglasses pocket and one for a phone, and it’s big enough to hold a small tablet like the iPad mini or phablets. It’s made of polyurethane-coated 1050D ballistic nylon and has waterproof zippers to keep your gear dry, and it’s available in a right- or left-handed model. It will be made in the USA. The funding period ends Sat, August 30, 2014 at 1:16 AM EDT, and funding has already far exceeded the $10,000 goal. A minimum pledge of $45 gets you one Bolstr. Shipment is expected to begin in September, 2014.
