About

Durable inline wheels

We use premium quality inline wheels that can handle a range of different terrains. Easy to fold away when not in use. You can also replace them with your favourite wheels.

Lightweight trolley section

The detachable trolley section only weights 1Kg/2.2lbs.

Neatly tuck away straps

The shoulder straps are easily tucked into the back panel when not needed, so they stay out of the way when in trolley-mode or when stored. 

Wheels lift backpack off the ground

The design makes sure the wheels are lifting the bag away from the ground when rolled, ensuring it stays clean while preventing tears.

Design that lets you go further

With a versatile design, there’s no need to leave your bag at home. 

Trolley can be stored when not needed

Don’t need your wheels? No problem – the trolley section is easily stored elsewhere when not in use.

Let your back breath 

Explore your surroundings in comfort. AS’s padded suspension system has sufficient gaps to boost air circulation, making it even more comfortable when carried as a backpack.

Weight and measurements

Hi! I’m Luis Tovar, the founder of Atlas Sabbatical. After seven years of working as a lawyer for a top firm in Spain, I decided it was time for something else – I went to travel the world, and that’s where the idea for Atlas Sabbatical was born. I travelled across a lot of countries like Japan, Iran or Tanzania and that meant going through different terrains, running to catch different types of transport, which means the needs for my luggage kept changing constantly. I ended up buying and testing different wheeled backpacks for my trip, but they were all too heavy, non-functional and uncomfortable to carry, or too inconvenient to roll to truly serve its purpose.

I started working on the AS pack when returning from my travels, teamed up with the best designers in Barcelona, and after over a year of prototyping and testing, the AS bag is ready! We’ve tested it extensively to make sure it has the versatile features to fit different phases of a trip. We can’t wait to share it with other travelers!

Our name: Atlas is a titan condemned to hold up the world on his shoulders for eternity. This is exactly the way we feel after backpacking for a few days. We think Atlas deserves a proper rest – the world should be at your feet, not on your shoulders.

Customs & Duties:

EU: Our prices include VAT and import taxes for the EU. There will be no last minute surprises.

US: We understand that most if not all backers from the US will benefit from import duty exemption, but we are not tax advisors so kindly confirm it from official sources.

Rest of the world: We are shipping these products all over the world, unfortunately it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter.

Please notice we cannot mark your package as a gift.

Risks and challenges

We’ve planned this project carefully to avoid any delays, and have set a realistic timeline for our production. However, of course there is always a risk involved with making products and with dealing with the logistics of global shipping. A tool can break in a factory, or a natural disaster or port congestions can delay shipment – if something would come up that would delay shipping to our backers, we’ll make sure to communicate it with you as clearly and early as possible. We are Kickstarter backers ourselves and know the value of community and transparency – we promise to be the type of creator we’d like to back ourselves and will keep our backers updated every step of the way.

The photos and videos feature prototypes. The final version of the backpack may vary, due to stretch goals approved on Kickstarter or changes to improve the design. However changes will not be essential and/or modify the functions and main features of the backpack and trolley.
