Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Pleatpack – which bills itself as the most functional urban tech backpack.

It was on Kickstarter but I thought I would rerun the post as it has now has transitioned to Indiegogo. All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Pleatpack Urban Tech backpack features
