Our Technical Duffel is designed to be the only bag you need to make a work/life balance possible. Lets start with the heavy-duty, water-resistant shell featuring genuine Cordura® ballistic nylon. We also incorporated our antimicrobial technology right into the fabric which resists and repels up to 99% of harmful bacteria, mold, and fungus. How awesome is that to help with your travel hygiene!
Now on to the feature list. The Duffel has multiple pockets and organizers allow you to have your professional necessities at hand for work. Even the front organizer pocket is lined in a wipe clean acrylic so it can be used either for business or as a cosmetics pocket for travel. There is a large EVA padded and faux-fur lined laptop pocket that will hold up to a 15" laptop. A generous main compartment behind the work/personal divider makes sure you can fit all you need for your day. There are details like an anti-theft zipper lock to keep as well as a luggage pass through handle to make those airport trips a breeze.
We also used the new YKK EYL woven "tough zippers" for maximum durability. Plus these zippers use substantially less water in their dying process so they are good for the environment too - win/win!
Finish it all of with a shoe garage and lay-flat water bottle holder to take you right from work to the gym, or vice-verse. Is it your work bag, your getaway bag, your gym bag? YES!
Oh yeah, the Technical Duffel also incorporates a top charger pocket that fits perfectly with our wireless charging battery (sold separately) to give you on the go charging without having to deal with unsanitary public charging stations. This pocket will also accommodate other chargers, but fits so nice with ours.
Thanks for reading all this. We know it's a lot. But there was a lot we wanted this bag to do and we know you will appreciate all the attention to detail in your daily use.
If you want to follow the science, scroll to the end for more information about our antimicrobial technology.
Here's some "scienc-y" info for those of you who just gotta know more about our antimicrobial technology ;)
While the term “antibacterial” may be more well known, antimicrobials take germ protection a step further in that they are also effective against molds, and fungi.
Our antimicrobial technology targets harmful microbes by altering their ability to convert nutrients into energy, inhibiting microbial survival and reproduction. We use a zinc pyrithione process delivered in a liquid dispersion form that incorporates the solution directly within the textile fibers. Our treatment is registered with the EPA and FDA as well as notified with the EU BPR and is BluesIgn® and Okeo-Tex certified.
Our fabrics were laboratory tested* using antimicrobial test methods ATCC 100 & ATCC 30 and compared against a control sample. No product can claim 100% elimination or guarantee effectiveness against all kinds of microorganisms and pathogens. However, these tests showed our fabric to repel and resist up to 99% of bacteria, mold, and fungus. This means that whatever your bag comes in contact with, the bag itself is working to eliminate harmful germs and bacteria. We call this process “active hygienics” and it means that any transmission of microorganisms to or from your bag will be diminished.
We are pleased to bring this technology to market in response to the need for heightened hygiene practices and to provide our customers the best product experience possible.
Regarding COVID-19: Most antimicrobial processes (including ours) have not yet been specifically tested on COVID-19. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) recommend the use of antibacterial and antimicrobial products as part of a generalized preventative routine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
