If you buy one product for a friend or loved one this winter, you need to check out Co.alition Bags. This company is an urban backpack built around the idea of keeping us connected to our technology, making a great gift for any wearer. I found out about Co.alition through word of mouth and I’m glad I did because after seeing their bags in person, I can tell you these are superbly crafted items with a definite functionality for their user.
Co.alition stemmed from a need determined by the two founders, Casey and Jeff, while they were away on a business trip. Having already successfully created the outdoor pack line MHM, the two were traveling to Japan and unfortunately all they had were their outdoor packs. What Casey described to me wasn’t a loss of need, their outdoor line works great and is superb quality, but instead a loss of functionality. Whether it was moving through airport security or fitting in places like crowded subway cars, their MHM bags stood out and were not designed for these spaces. Thus, their new company Co.alition was born. And good thing it was.
Currently, the Co.alition line offers two backpacks, and they are looking to expand into the near future. For Co.alition, their design sense is immediately present in the color choices, clean layouts and great features. Currently, they offer both bags in the colors of charcoal and cement. Each of their two existing options are designed for shorter trips. The first is their Federal, a 22-liter bag capable of holding your basics. With the size and shape of the bag, this one is the perfect carry-on for holding a laptop and a few other essential items you might need for work. Next there is The Colfax, a much larger bag designed to carry 25 liters. Although the difference in size might not seem like that much, after viewing both of these in their store, it matters. Where The Federal would be great as an everyday bag, The Colfax is just large enough, offering its users room to store enough items for a good weekend trip.
The layout of each pack was created very intentionally to keep your electronic goods separate from the main compartment, making it easy to protect your higher priced gear while also fitting in the essentials. Especially with The Colfax, you can comfortably live out of this thing for two or three days on the road, depending on how you pack. Both bags also come with a built in rain jacket for extra protection.
The other great features about these bags, and the one it is essential to highlight, are The other great features about these bags which are essential to highlight are their ability to connect and enhance your technology. Both bags come with some options for serious upgrades. You can add a portable power pack and a wireless hard drive to each of the bags. The power pack is nestled directly in your bag, but has a port to charge on the outside for ease of access. This means when you charge it you do not need to remove the power pack. The technology behind the power pack is also seamless, allowing you to charge your pack from the wall and charge a device off the pack simultaneously, a unique feature for portable charges. The wireless hard drives come in options of 500 MB, 1 TB or 2 TB meaning that you have plenty of room to store data. These devices can last for eight days without needing another charge and can connect to up to 8 devices. The result is that these beauties will sync to your tech as you go, making sure you never lose files when on the road.
Co.alition is fantastic not only because it offers great products, but they also come from a great company. The founders are easy-going people who are willing to chase their dreams, having seen a need and met it not once, but twice. If you are looking for a nice gift for a loved one who is plugged in and on the go, these are your bags. Even if you are looking for a gift for the thrifty college student looking to make the most of their time, again, these are your bags. With the ability to last and supporting technology designed by experts, you cannot go wrong with Co.alition.
