Looking at the response to our Kickstarter campaign, people see that our HEXAD duffels offer the perfect solution to their travel needs –providing the flexibility of storage they’ve been searching for in a travel bag.

Crowdfunding backers have packed their support behind WANDRD’s HEXAD Carryall and HEXAD Access duffel bags, investing more than $545,000 while taking advantage of early-bird discounts for the innovative travel bags as its Kickstarter Campaign enters its final three weeks.

Designed to bridge the gap between traditional duffel bags that are uncomfortable and lack organization and dedicated travel bags that only work well at the airport, each style HEXAD duffle offers a solution for any packing challenge a traveler can face.

The HEXAD Carryall comes in a 60-liter and a smaller 40-liter size, depending on the carry-on dimensions needed by the traveler. Both styles are made of tarpaulin and ballistic nylon with army coating, materials that are waterproof and made to last a lifetime. They feature a molded back panel, unique backpack straps, and an adjustable chest strap, making HEXAD the most comfortable duffel on the market. It’s backpack straps allow users to carry it tote-style without any extra annoying straps hanging off the bag – and the straps can be easily removed within seconds and stashed away in a dedicated pocket.

The Carryall version also includes an expandable pocket on one side of the bag for shoes or dirty laundry. It easily folds out of the way when not in use. For smaller items, there’s an RFID locking pocket for security, a set of spill-proof pockets to keep toiletries contained, a fleece-lined quick access pocket for valuables, and mesh organizer pockets throughout the bag.

The HEXAD Access version of the Duffel is also carry-on size, and features a main u-zip accessible compartment. One big clamshell opening gives access to the entire contents of the duffel – and multiple compartments make it easy to organize clothes or other gear. Two bottom sections fit both sizes of WANDRD’s existing camera cubes, enabling the Access Duffel to be transformed into the ultimate camera bag.

“We developed these bags to offer the best solution for the traveler, whether they are taking a day trip or boarding a jet for a long-distance flight,” said WANDRD Co-founder Ryan Cope. “Looking at the response to our Kickstarter campaign, people see that our HEXAD duffels offer the perfect solution to their travel needs – keeping their laptops and electronics safe, while providing the flexibility of storage they’ve been searching for in a travel bag.”

Both styles of the HEXAD Duffels come with a padded laptop sleeve, big enough for a 15” laptop.

Cope says the WANDRD team, made up of three brothers, came up with the idea for the HEXAD Duffels during a flight from Vietnam to Hong Kong.

“We love to travel and we’re always looking for ways to simplify and improve the way we carry our belongings,” Cope said. “We designed these duffels for travelers like us, and the response to this crowdfunding campaign has been fantastic.”
