What makes a great backpack? Well for starters, it needs to hold many things. Those things should be kept in good condition, and you should be able to access everything with relative ease. A great backpack should also have some sense of style, while making no compromises when it comes to durability. The Frenchie Co. Speed backpack embodies these attributes, and offers plenty more. This handsome bag provides quick access to your kit and great security features. Furthermore, it can shrug off the rain and endure cold weather.

– Innovative design provides quick access to all your items

– Anti-theft enclosure keeps your valuables safe on the go

– Thermo-regulating fabric maintains a steady temperature, shrugs off rain

Speed Backpack

Accessibility is a very underappreciated aspect when it comes to luggage. A bag with a large capacity may be able to hold plenty of items, but you might struggle to reach them in a hurry. This doesn’t matter to the people who walk miles across wild country to go camping. But when you’re rushing to make the last train home, quick access is everything.

When designing the Speed backpack, the folks at the Frenchie Company made access their first priority. Rather than relying on insecure exterior pockets, they created a bag that quickly swings round to reveal the zippers.

Whether you travel the world or just make it to work every day, this backpack should help you stay organized.

Quick Access

With the bag on your back, there are two main ways of gaining quick entry to the Speed backpack.

Smaller items, such as your keys or your phone, can be stored in the two quick-access pockets. These are concealed on the underside of the bag, beneath a flap. You can quite easily reach back and release this flap while you’re still wearing the backpack. The pockets then hang down, allowing you to withdraw what you need.

To access everything else, you simply swing the bag around your body. This instantly turns the backpack into a kind of messenger bag, complete with a 15-inch laptop sleeve.

This is made possible by the Frenchie Company’s unique self-adjusting straps. They work much like seat belts, pulling and loosening to maintain the right amount of tension.

Rugged Style

The innovation doesn’t stop there. The Speed backpack is literally covered in great features — some, very space-age.

Take the choice of fabric: ballistic nylon. This material is used to make the suits that astronauts wear. On the Speed backpack, the nylon helps to maintain a constant temperature inside the bag. Even when the sun bakes down or the snow starts to fall, your devices will stay comfortable. Furthermore, the nylon is very tough and rain resistant.

There are 29 pockets in total, and the majority are protected by the anti-theft enclosure. This magnetic wrap prevents the zippers being opened by thieving fingers.

“This bag is loaded with innovation for total convenience. It takes its name from the fact that you can easily and quickly access anything you need. In fact, accessing items inside the bag only requires one movement. There are also two quick access pockets for conveniently storing items you use the most.” — Frenchie Co. on IndieGoGo
