BaggizmoSometimes the best ideas “repurpose” existing ones. The new Baggizmo textile bag is a lesson in how to take advantage of the properties of several performance textiles to create an ingenious new product.

Baggizmo offers a unique way of carrying your personal items. The carrying bag is organized to accommodate a tablet, two smartphones, keys, wallet, power stick, pencil, a pad of paper and more via multiple-sized pockets whose directions or orientation on the body and sizes correspond to the devices they house. Each has internal cushioning lined with several layers of material that provide protection against mechanical or heat damage.

The innermost lining is microfiber, suitable for gadget pockets since it is a textile often used to clean screens. Channels between each of the compartments conveniently provide clearance for charge cables and headphones. The bag also includes an integrated near field communication tag, a wireless technology that allows the transfer of data such as texts or numbers.

An outer layer is made of Schoeller®-dynatec, a material that is abrasion resistant, breathable, has two-way-stretch, and is wind, UV and water repellent. The straps, which come in three designs and colors, are made from a composite weave that has a soft fiber feel but is also a rugged material. The buckles, designed specifically for this bag, are made from zamak, part of the zinc aluminium alloy family, and have a satin nickel surface treatment with a matt finish that is achieved with high performance cataphoretic lacquer that offers improved durability.

Worn over a T-shirt or shirt, under or over a jacket or business suit, Baggizmo keeps a slim profile even when it’s full, following the lines of the body. It’s available in versions for people who are left or right handed for added convenience and comfort.
