The Aer Fit Pack is the first gym/work backpack designed for the city lifestyle. It blends a clean, understated aesthetic with smart functionality so that you’ll always have your gym/work essentials and never feel out of place. Its versatile design also keeps your gym/work essentials separated.

Fits Your Lifestyle

The Fit Pack is designed around your modern lifestyle so you can take it to the office, gym, or coffee shop and never feel out of place. Its clean, minimalist design makes it perfect for both men and women.

Design and Development

The concept for the Fit Pack was to design a gym/work bag that can be taken anywhere in the city. We were inspired by the classic Mackintosh jacket, which is smart enough to be worn to the office and extremely durable in wet weather.

Just like the Mackintosh jacket, the Fit Pack is both functional and wearable. The bag stores your shoes, clothes and accessories and looks sharp thanks to its durable, heathered exterior.

Rewards

As a thank you to all our backers and supporters, we're offering the Fit Pack and Sling Bag at a special Kickstarter price. Check out the deals below:

Production

The Fit Pack will be produced overseas with our highly skilled manufacturing partner. They helped us create over 1000 Duffel Packs for our first Kickstarter campaign and they’re ready to move forward with the Fit Packs. We’re constantly in contact with them and they’re eager to start production.

We’ve created a production schedule based on multiple orders we’ve made in the past. We’ll do everything within our control to stay true to this schedule and update backers about any potential delays.

Your Support

As a small startup, we can't fund the production of the Fit Pack on our own. We need your support to place a minimum order ($30,000) with our manufacturing partner. If we reach our goal, we’ll be able to fund the production of the Fit Packs and continue creating new products for the modern lifestyle.

We’ve spent over $5,000 of our own savings and spent half a year to design and develop the Fit Pack into what it is today. We’ve already received great feedback on our design and with your support, we can make the Fit Pack a reality!

About Aer

Aer is a design company based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We aim to create products that balance a clean, modern aesthetic with smart functionality.

Last fall we introduced the Aer Duffel Pack to the Kickstarter community and were blown away by your support and feedback. Because of you, we were able to surpass our funding goal and receive critical acclaim from the editors at Wired, Hypebeast, Uncrate and 7X7 SF. Many of our supporters asked for a smaller bag for men and women so we went back to the drawing board and created the Aer Fit Pack.

Thank You!

We want to thank all our supporters and the Kickstarter community for giving us the opportunity to make the Fit Pack a reality. We wouldn’t be here without you guys and you can count on us to deliver an amazing product.

Risks and challenges

We learned a lot from our Kickstarter project last year so we’re confident and prepared to move forward with our second campaign. We’ve developed strong relationships with our manufacturer and freight forwarder over the past year, allowing us to quickly produce the Fit Pack at a moment’s notice.

Our extensive preparation should allow for a smooth production and fulfillment process but we know that delays can arise. Based on our past experience, we’ll be ready to tackle any challenge and we'll keep our supporters in the loop about any unexpected delays.
