PORTLAND, Ore., Sep. 05, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Designed to be both small enough to fit in a single pouch and large enough for trips of up to three days, the lightweight, comfortable air-powered TREXAD Backpack has garnered more than $106,000 in presales on Kickstarter as the crowdfunding campaign enters its final three weeks.

"We're excited to reach this milestone, which also shows there's a true need for a lightweight, 'air-powered' backpack like this for both adventurers and those who just want enjoy a comfortable backpack when they're on the go in the city," said TREXAD founder Daniel Shir.

Shir and his team used lightweight sleeping pads in the design of the TREXAD Travel Pack – which inflates in a single breath to make carrying more than 20 pounds of baggage easy and comfortable.

"We created the TREXAD so travelers will have the perfect backpack that they can use either as their primary grab-and-go bag with a spacious 33-liter capacity, or when they need an additional compact bag that can fold up into a small pouch the size of a soup when necessary," Shir said.

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 – giving users the ability to make quick adjustments to relieve pressure points while on-the-go and 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."

Three weeks remain to pre-order the TREXAD Travel Pack at early-bird discount prices by visiting the TREXAD Campaign Page on Kickstarter.

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.
