On Nov 7th 2017, Jordan, Malcolm Fontier, and The Minimalists answered the requests of fans around the world to bring a cult favorite travel bag back to the market, via Indiegogo. Introducing the Pakt One, a bag for frequent travelers that combines the lightweight portability and style of a duffel with the organization and structure of a suitcase.
The Pakt One is an updated version of Malcolm’s limited edition Getaway bag, which broke ground in 2011 due to its innovative dual compartment, zip-around body style. Designed to provide easy access to all your belongings on the go, the Pakt One adds thoughtful features to help you save time and hassle while in transit. Highlights include:
First-of-its-kind TSA pocket to quickly stash items that have to be removed at security Internal laptop pocket accessible from the top of the bag uses your clothing for extra cushioning Accessory loops that allow you to clip items like a water bottle or sunglasses on the outside where they’re easy to find and won’t spill or get crushed.
The unisex Pakt One is available in three colors and is constructed with modern, durable, technical materials that are animal-friendly and have the lowest possible environmental impact. The suggested retail price for the bag is $325, but early backers of the Indiegogo campaign where able to purchase it for as low as $175 (although that sold out within the first 10 minutes).
