Koala-Gear has just launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund JOEY, the everyday backpack that gives your body a break. Based on technology from travel gear and inspired by minimalist design, they fundamentally changed countless features of conventional everyday backpacks. JOEY is their first masterpiece – versatile, sleek, and perfectly tailored to the human body. A full contact, super ergonomic back suspension system directs the weight towards your hips and lays JOEY right against your back. A contoured hip pad absorbs the weight and reduces horizontal movements when walking or running. Load-lifter straps and towable hip and sternum straps provide maximum comfort. Multi-directional air flow tunnels provide pleasant ventilation and keep your back dry at all times. JOEY has a pair of easy to use side pockets. They feel like additional pants pockets because they are so accessible. You can take out your smartphone, wallet, or keys, on the go, and stow them safely to have the hands free again.
