San Francisco-based Triple Aught Design never ceases to impress. Their Meridian Transport Case notwithstanding. Both discreet in color and elegant in design, it’s both durable and hosts some fantastic engineering. And no matter what you carry, from folded attire for a business trip to delicate photography equipment, the Meridian Transport Case will change the way you think about carry.
The bag opens up to three separate clamshell compartments and remains attached through TAD’s Helix attachment system. The center compartment is protected with padding on both the sides and bottom and two top exterior pockets provide travelers with easy access to specific belongings at a moment’s notice as well. The Meridian also hosts three full-width zipper pockets that’ll let you access important gear without entering the main compartment. You can even mount MOLLE-compatible pouches to the outside compartments. It fits comfortably under airline seats as well as overhead storage bins even on smaller regional flights. And even if you’re lugging around a bit of equipment the Meridian’s ergonomic, non-slip shoulder strap allows you to wear the bag for extended periods of time. Available now for $425. [Purchase]
