Travelers around the world have been waiting for a versatile bag that makes traveling a lot easier, especially when people want to use just a single bag on short trips of seven days or less.

With just over 9,000 backers on Kickstarter investing more than $1.7 million to be the first to have the Nomatic Travel Bag, creator cousins Jacob Durham and Jon Richards will continue to offer the multi-functional travel bag at early-bird pricing on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo InDemand.

“We’re grateful for all the travelers, nearly a third of whom who had never purchased from Kickstarter before, who backed our innovative travel bag to make the campaign a tremendous success,” said co-founder Jacob Durham. “This is our biggest success among all the products we’ve created, and we expect more people will want to purchase the Nomatic Travel Bag while they can still get it at a special price.”

Durham also noted that, in addition to backers from the United States, the Nomatic Travel Bag also received substantial support from travelers in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Singapore – along with many other countries.

“Travelers around the world have been waiting for a versatile bag that makes traveling a lot easier, especially when people want to use just a single bag on short trips of seven days or less,” Durham added. “For those travelers, Nomatic is truly their single-bag solution.”

With 20 different features ranging from multiple compartments designed to carry laptops, notebooks and water bottles to sections that will keep shoes and soiled garments separated from clean clothes, the Nomatic Travel Bag was designed with the frequent traveler in mind.

The Nomatic Travel Bag’s 20 features include:

  • An airport security-friendly padded and secure laptop pocket designed so security screeners have a clear and unobstructed view, allowing travelers to keep computers in the laptop pocket during security screenings.
  • A padded tablet pocket inside the main compartment door that keeps it easily accessible and safe, featuring a Velcro-flap designed with a slot to allow charging on-the-go with a power bank while keeping it secure.
  • A notebook pocket sized to hold a Basics Notebook or any other book of a similar size (about 5.5" x 8.75").
  • A special pocket for a water bottle at the top of the bag, lined with water-proof material to make it easier for travelers to stay hydrated during trips and also assure that other items stay dry in case of a leak.
  • A radio frequency identification (RFID) pocket with a TSA-approved lock that keeps scan-able items safe from RFID scanners and valuables safe from pickpockets, unscrupulous room service personnel and other potential threats.
  • A separate laundry bag, designed to hang on a door knob so travelers can easily toss clothes in, that is then simply zipped up to fit perfectly in the main bag compartment on the way home to keep dirty clothes separate and more organized.
  • An innovative vacuum bag that allows travelers to pack more clothes in half the space.
  • A shoe compartment that can easily fit up to two pairs of Size-12 shoes.
  • A miscellaneous compartment that can be used to store socks, underwear, or even a light jacket for easy access if travelers get cold during their journey.
  • A soft, fleece-lined valuables pocket on the top side of the bag for storing a phone, sunglasses and other valuables.
  • A combination of mesh, fleece-lined, and zipper pockets for storing power cords, power banks, laptop chargers and any other items.
  • A unique strap system allows travelers to wear the bag in a backpack or duffel bag position without dangling straps.
  • A comfortable handle to make carrying the bag by hand easy and less painful.
  • An adjustable sternum strap to make it more comfortable when used in its back-pack configuration.

By combining the best elements of a backpack, duffel bag and carry-on luggage, Durham says the Nomatic is “the world’s most functional travel bag.”

About Nomatic
Originally named BASICS when founded in 2014 by cousins Jacob Durham and Jon Richards, the company launched its first project on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter – the BASICS wallet. After raising $171,000 for the product, the pair quit their day jobs and focused on developing travel- and work-related products with innovative designs and functionality. The BASICs wallet was followed by the BASICS Notebook, which raised nearly $400,000 in crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The company, based in Salt Lake City, changed its name to Nomatic to be more reflective of the range of products it produces for the consumer market.
