ARES Versatile Lifestyle Backpack

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-07-17

Streamline the way you carry everything you need with the ARES Versatile Lifestyle Backpack. It has a built-in compartment just for holding your shoes. In addition, there’s a separate compartment for the rest of your gym gear. However, the ARES Backpack also has a hidden compartment for post-gym clothes so prevent odor seeping out. On the other side of the ARES Backpack is a compartment for your work items. It has space for your documents, writing utensils, cables, and so much more. Separate from this section is a padded laptop pocket for devices up to 15 inches. Finally, the waterproof exterior features a collapsible water bottle pocket as well as a roller bag sleeve. Additional features include a hidden back pocket, pockets in the straps, and a convenient sternum strap. Even with all this, the ARES Backpack remains carry-on size for easy travels.

Review from Kickstarter
Mine arrived today in Alberta, Canada. Can't wait to try it out tomorrow! Will be carrying a lot! I agree with previous posters that I'd like the lining to be thicker and the zipper on the bottom to be larger (or have a string). I'll give a more thorough review when I've actually used it.

@Dimitrie, the tracking will not show any status update until the package arrive your country. In your situation, good to know that you hear news about the backpack. I don't understand how you'll get charge for 31-32 Euro of the product. Regarding on tax and duty, it is not something that I could mitigate. I've already declared it as business samples since technically this is an non-release product at the time of the shipment. How did the custom come up with such number? Please PM me, thank you

Review from Kickstarter
I sent you a private message and email but have not yet had an answer. Apparently my package is kept at customs. After giving them the information they needed, I now need to pay 31-32 euro's extra in order to get my product. That is around 35% extra. Why is this the case and how can we solve this?

@Jasmine, sorry to have missed your message, actually I'd need additional information from you in order make the shipment. All Taiwan shipment required receiver ID from the Taiwan government. Please PM me your ID number and I can dispatch the shipment within the next 3 days. Thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, still haven’t gotten notification for tracking yet, seeing that Taiwan is pretty close to china, I find this a bit odd. Could you send it again, please?

@ares any eta on US deliveries? I see that the it seems to be stuck in the chicago USPS office? is there any estimated time for arrival? my tracker told me it would arrive in at least 10 days but it's past that. No anger or saltiness but just curious! was hoping to use the bag for my trip in a weeks time, that's all!

Review from Kickstarter
Received! However one of the zipper pulls for the work compartment broke already :( I also think the shoe compartment zippers need zipper pulls or a convenient pull tab/loop. The zippers are much smaller than the others on the bag which makes them hard to grab. I also agree the inside lining is a bit thin and when the internal pockets are loaded, it's very easy for the lining to be deformed slightly because the pockets don't have much dedicated volume. Notably when I try to put my Bose headphones case in the work compartment, it can be a little difficult to zip the compartment closed because of the minor deformity that results. Of course, the headphones are definitely bulky and I could put them in the other compartment, but then it'll get mixed with my clothes (1stworld problem but this was the bag's original purpose no?) In any case thanks for seeing the project through and looking forward to what you have planned next.

@Hans, will look into it, wait for my email. @Yumiko, Awesome! thank you for supporting. @Fan, well noted about the zipper, however, when it comes to water resistance zipper, there's not a lot of choice in the market and after several test, this is one of the zipper that survive 6 months of testing. Will definitely improve in the near future. @Adam, Awesome !! thank you. @Joelle, The base is wide intentionally so that the backpack would stand up when you place it on the ground. I have had so many backpacks before and I'll have to lean it against something when putting down. A smaller version is definitely something we'll do. Maybe a modular backpack too? We're back to the drawing board :D @Tomer, Noted about your comments. Choice of fabric is something that has no limit when it comes to improvement. It's all related to cost vs. selling price and also where we position our backpack. For our very first model, we wanted to offer a solution to people who need to carry multiple bags when traveling around. If we go with thicker materials, the backpack alone would be very heavy. Currently, we're one of the few that offers a very light backpack (1.05kg) with so many functions and compartments to solve the work/ gym carrying problem.

From Israel, got it and its great, one thing you can make better(and its guess it will cost more) this inside "nylon" is too thin, and it makes it hard to look for things in the bag, you just "feel" everything trough any cell in the bag makes it "unclear" of where my hand is in it.
Thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
From Singapore, received the bag. Loving it but at times find it a bit bulky especially the base is too wide and not collapsible. Like another buyer said - If you do a smaller version for 13inch laptop and women size shoes, I will totally buy another one too !

Review from Kickstarter
Received here in the US. Great bag! The only thing I feel not so perfect is the zipper of shoes compartment is a little hard to use due to the size of it. Other than that, I love this bag. Good work ARES team!

@All, for those who already got the backpack. Could you please help to leave me a msg if you have not already done so? To those who's still waiting (mainly from US), I apologize for the slight delay, all shipment has arrived designated countries, but particularly in USA, the post time is delayed due to the snowstorm happened earlier and there's a huge backlog of international shipment. Please refer to to tracking number from your email. I'm also monitoring all remaining shipment twice a day to ensure you'll get your backpack. @Caleb, sorry that we've missed your toiletry bag. Could I send you it to you after CNY holiday?

@All, please send me a short message when you get the backpack. If you haven't get it, it's on its way. The tracking number will not be "activate" until it's in your country for most (but it's on its way). There are instances where the package exceeded the size limit and they're bounce back and have been re-sent via a different shipping services, I will follow up with updated tracking number in this case via email with you individually. The logistic world is really complicated especially when one is shipping large but light product (it's really really expensive), Hope you'll enjoy the backpack and continue to support us. We've also started our Instagram page so please follow us on IG if you have Instagram :) Calvin
