After somewhat reinventing the wheel in the world of camping tents, Heimplanet then set out to build the ultimate everyday backpack. And not just for commuting either. They looked to develop a design that worked well with outdoor activities and athletics as well as your run-of-the-mill carry options. Their solution, dubbed the Motion Series, is their answer to the common issues they discovered with ordinary backpacks.
Broken down into two categories, the Arc and the Ellipse (the 20L and 25L versions respectively) each boasts a minimal outward appearance that’s absent of any excessive pockets and zippers. They feature a wedge-shaped silhouette that’s ideal for distributing the weight within the pack and the main compartment comes equipped with a water-resistant YKK zipper, a stretchable front layer that adapts with ease to various carry items, a weatherproof zipper side pocket that’ll keep your valuables protected, and an additional stretchable side pocket which is ideal for water bottles of just about any size. They also boast a laptop compartment, dangle-free strap end, gear loops, and the 3D molded padding in the back reduces contact between the wearer and the pack for easier carry. The Arc is retails for $145 while the Ellipse retails for $160.
