CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Companies are making bags and packs increasingly durable, versatile, and feature-loaded these days. Plus, the military look is in. Have a look at the Tactical Urban Carry System, currently in a Kickstarter campaign from AMABILIS.
What is it?
The Tactical Urban Carry System from AMABILIS consists of a backpack and a tote bag, both of which are military-influenced in style and appear to be made from durable materials and to be packed with features geared toward urban/commuter users.
Why do I like it?
First off, I like the style. I dig the appearance of the “tacticool”-styled bags and packs. As mentioned above, the system consists of a backpack and tote bag, both of which are made from “Military Grade Waterproof Tarpaulin,” main exterior and “SuperFabric Ceramic Armor Plates for Maximum Durability” along the bottom, and are “Fully Lined w/High-Viz Waterproof Nylon,” and include Velcro fields with laser-cut MOLLE webbing on the exterior to mount morale patches or other accessories. The flagship bag in the system is the UR-2 (short for Urban Responder) Rucksack, which features a “GI duffle” style top closure, a waterproof dry bag collar, quick-access lockable laptop compartment, a removable modular Velcro organization board and lots of other features. The Tactical Tote features a magnetic top closure, interior organization pockets including a laptop compartment, a heavy-duty shoulder strap and many more features.
Where can I find more info?
The Tactical Urban Carry System campaign ends in just a few weeks on April 17, 2019, and has already surpassed its funding goal of $25,000. Pledge packages start at about $79 for a single Tactical Tote and increase from there depending on the options selected. After the end of the campaign period, rewards are expected to start shipping in August 2019. Visit the Tactical Urban Carry System campaign site for more information or to become a backer.
