Japan’s neon-hued cityscapes are surely a sight to see, but if you’re feeling a bit fatigued from a long day of urban exploration, there’s always the country’s famed Nine Hours Hotel. This unique coffee spot has enamored local denizens and tourists alike with its proprietary capsule-shaped rest and relaxation rooms — and now, even Aer’s technical minds have been indubitably inspired.
To bring light to one of the company’s favorite spots to recharge, the Aer x Nine Hours Capsule Collection has been designed to pay homage to the basics. A 35-liter and 40-liter pack embued with 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon and Duraflex hardware make their debut, providing wearers with a durable all-day pack catered toward urban traversal. Within its similarly-composed, capsule-like silhouette, a duffel-style main compartment, easy-access storage area, and laptop pocket provide organizational freedom, helping the pack to remain ergonomic and intuitive. Soft interior linings, load lifters, and a padded mesh back panel emphasize comfort and protective qualities, making the Capsule Collection an attractive offering for frequent travelers. Head to Aer’s website to learn more about the inspiration behind the Nine Hours Capsule bag; and while you’re there, take your pick from either a black, or slate-gray variant for $230.
