HEIMPLANET x KICKSTARTER
THE LAST BAG YOU WILL EVER NEED
The German Outdoor Brand HEIMPLANET asked themselves: What would a bag have to look like in order to be the right choice for the most demanding use - everyday life? The answer is their brand-new TRANSIT LINE. A series that combines functionality, longevity and sustainability, and is probably the last bag you ever have to buy, thanks to its sturdy outer material.
The HEIMPLANET TRANSIT LINE consists of three stand-alone models for different scenarios: The Travel Pack, the Roll-Top Messenger Bag and the Sling Bag.
The MESSENGER BAG offers the same possibilities for organization in a smaller format and is a hybrid of a subtle work
briefcase and a modern messenger bag. It comes with an adjustable, removable and interchangeable Courier- and
sternum strap which prevents the bag from slipping off the back. Thanks to the weather resistant roll top, the volume
adapts to the individual needs and the aluminum G-hook closure is simple in its appearance yet super easy to operate.
The folding mechanism uses magnets to align the edges nicely for easy closing.
The TRAVEL PACK offers the perfect volume for a business trip, a weekend getaway or any other activity that determines everyday life. It can be opened and laid down flat thanks to its clamp-shell opening. Additional volume compartments help to separate items for work and travel and still allow the wearer to individually decide where to draw the line.
The SLING POCKET offers as a supplement to the series, a perfect organization in the smallest space. Ideal for the daily transport of the most important things such as mobile phones, purses and other essentials and thereby for those who gothrough the day and night with only their essentials. The main
compartment offers plenty of internal organization and the flat front pocket which is fleece lined on both sides protect
glasses or phone from scratches.
The heart of the TRANSIT LINE is the fabric especially developed for this series. It is the key to longevity and sustainability. The DYECOSHELL main fabric is one of a kind. It is made of two different yarns which are both dope dyed what means, that the yarn is already extruded with black and grey colorant. The black yarn is a 800D High Tenacity Nylon and the grey one is a 660D Polypropylene. They work together in an irregular ballistic weave which boosts the abrasion resistance. On the back a special anti-abrasion coating that sinks deep into the fabric improves the durability even further. To upgrade all models, HEIMPLANET used YKK WATER-R ZIPPER for all products, an upgrade of the usually used PU coated zippers. Another especially detail is the custom made HPT SLITLOK - a simple but strong aluminum square-ring with a slit to provide a detachable webbing connection that never comes off unless you want so. It also just looks as slick as possible.
DOPE DYED FABRICS save water, C02, energy and chemicals by adding colorant to the polymer melt during yarn spinning. That substitutes the most polluting process of the fabric production - dying. Through this process 89% water, 60% energy, 65% CO2 and 63% of chemicals were saved during the production of the substance. The result is the strongest and greenest bags the brand has ever developed.
