Modern day backpacks are no longer only backpacks – they also dub as chargers for your mobile phones, excellent carry-on’s for your tablets and laptops, and compact storage units for everything you need for your daily commute. Case in point – SOOT Electropack 2. This is a much improved version of the original SOOT Electropack which we’ve featured several months ago, and when we say “much improved” we mean 30 improvements from structure to fit to utility.
The designers call SOOT Electropack 2 “a modular carry-on that transforms into both a Mini Messenger and a Commuter Backpack”. The Mini Messenger is actually the backpack’s bottom half which can be detached from the carry-on and used for transporting smaller items like your DSLR camera. The Messenger is made from durable ballistic nylon, and it has an expendable strap for a low-slung option, as well as a stabilization sport strap to be used if you are running or cycling.
SOOT Electropack 2’s Commuter Backpack has six pouches, perfect for transporting your tablet, laptop, cables and all things that you need for your daily commute to work. Don’t worry! It is not overbearing and too heavy to carry, and its ergonomic design, with Sternum Straps, Easy-Pull Webbing, and Elastic Bind Rollers, make it not just comfortable to wear, but easy to downsize too.
This backpack is also an energy powerhouse, thanks to its full pack system (consisting of a 10,000mAh battery pack or two 10,000mAh battery packs in the pro package) which can charge up to four devices at the same time. You can share one of the battery ports with your friend, or you can charge your phone and your tablet at the same time.
If you are eager to find out more about the SOOT Electropack 2, the designers are launching a Kickstarter campaign today, at 8 AM PST. watch the video below
