You may not be familiar with Freitag – the Swiss manufacturer of highly durable water-repellant bags made from truck tarpaulins, bicycle inner tubes, and seat belts – but after checking out their newest travel-friendly option we’re confident that they’ll be on the tip of your tongue next time you decide to invest in a travel duffel.
Dubbed the Zippelin, these one-of-a-kind travel bags are the world’s first inflatable bags that are both spacious when in use and compact when not. When fully inflated the Zippelin boasts up to 85 liters of storage and when not needed simply rolls up tight like a small sleeping bag to help you save space in your home. It’s propped up and molded with bicycle inner tubes when inflated, works with a standard bicycle pump, comes equipped with attachable wheels, and boasts a myriad of zippered compartments within the highly water-repellant construction. And since each bag is sourced from recycled tarps no two are exactly the same. Available now for reservation of Kickstarter.
