Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropic travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the Hypercube charger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Jay daypack, which bills itself as a backpack that gives your body a break.

It is on Kickstarter only through this WEDNESDAY (January 16th) at 2PM EST. All Kickstarter links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Jay daypack features

Here are a few pictures of the Jay daypack. It comes either in water-resistant Kodra fabric or in leather. The Koala company which makes the Jay daypack originally made a larger backpack called “Joey”, and the Jay daypack is their answer for the situations when you need something a bit smaller.

Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the Jay daypack

And here’s a video of some of the testimonials of its sister product, the Joey backpack
