We’re grateful for all the crowdfunders supporting us, who will also be the first to enjoy the most comfortable experience they’ve ever had when carrying a backpack.

Thanks to frequent travelers and adventure seeking crowdfunders, presales of the lightweight, comfortable air-powered TREXAD Backpack have climbed above $60,000 on Kickstarter – four times higher than the crowdfunding campaign goal.

“We’re grateful for all the crowdfunders supporting us, who will also be the first to enjoy the most comfortable experience they’ve ever had when carrying a backpack," said TREXAD Founder Daniel Shir.

Shir, who has more than over two years of experience in designing lightweight sleeping pads, spent eight months developing the TREXAD Travel Pack. Powered by air, the TREXAD Travel Pack inflates in a single breath to make carrying more than 20 pounds of baggage easy and comfortable.

“As a traveler myself, I realized how critical traveling light and comfortably is in experiencing an enjoyable trip,” Shir said. “That’s why I created the TREXAD…to offer other travelers a backpack designed to serve as either a primary grab-and-go bag with a spacious 33-liter capacity, or an additional compact bag that can fold up into a small pouch the size of a soup can in your suitcase.”

While current lightweight backpacks on the market often sacrifice padding and back support, and can be burdensome to carry when fully loaded, the TREXAD Travel Pack’s inflatable air-cushioned shoulder straps and back support are self-adjustable – so they can be modified to relieve pressure points while on-the-go to maintain comfort even when the backpack is completely full.

The TREXAD Travel Pack offers:

  • Inflatable air cushioned shoulder straps and back
  • Large valve for inflation is one breath
  • Waterproof main compartment
  • 33L, but folds up to about soup can size and weighs only 10 oz.
  • Deep/large side pockets
  • Adjustable sternum strap with built-in whistle
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Adjustable load lifter/stability strap
  • Removable waist strap
  • Easy access front pocket with SBS water resistant reflective zipper.
  • External loop for additional carry
  • Ultralight, ultra-strong CORDURA fabric
  • Roller bag sleeve

“After months of intense designing, prototyping and field testing, I couldn’t be more excited to introduce TREXAD to travelers everywhere,“ Shir adds. “This is a backpack I’ve wanted on my trips for years.“

TREXAD was created to reinvent lightweight travel. Their idea starts with a simple problem: lightweight backpacks are too uncomfortable to carry. By creating a revolutionary inflatable air suspension system, the backpacks provide a much more comfortable carrying experience without sacrificing either weight or portability.
TREXAD believes when you travel lighter and more comfortably, you can go further and experience more.
