Aer Active Bag Collection 2

As an EDCer chances are you're always on the move, especially if you lead an active lifestyle. So when both getting to work and getting a workout are part of your daily grind, your EDC calls for a bag designed with gym and office essentials in mind. Aer's new and improved Active Collection 2 updates their versatile range of EDC-worthy gym bags with better materials and thoughtful design tweaks throughout. For urban EDC in and out of the gym, these are some of the strongest options around.

The second collection introduces new versions of the same silhouettes from the original. Depending on your preference for capacity and carry style, you can pick from four bags: a hybrid duffel/backpack, a more compact daypack, a spacious and breathable gym duffel, and an over-the-shoulder sling pack. Overall, they've been reworked with new Cordura brand 1680D ballistic nylon exteriors, more internal organization for mobile office essentials, larger and better ventilated shoe compartments, and custom zipper pulls as a finishing touch. But the improvements don't stop there.

The Duffel Pack was already spacious, but the Duffel Pack 2 ups the capacity and adds comfort thanks to redesigned ergonomic shoulder straps. For a smaller option, the Fit Pack 2 also comes with reworked shoulder straps and internal pockets. The Sling Pack 2 is now fully ambidextrous thanks to a central zip pocket and configurable shoulder strap. This time around, it features better internal pockets to even accommodate a small laptop. Lastly, the gear-hauling Gym Duffel 2 adds an additional 5.4L up to a 37.4L capacity while trimming the weight down to under 3 pounds.

Check out the full collection at Aer's site below, with current pre-orders set to ship August 15th.

8 Bags to EDC In and Out of the Gym

Looking to get in shape in the new year? You're not alone. Losing weight and exercising more have been two of the top New Year's resolutions in recent years.

Unfortunately, staying motivated to improve your health and fitness every single day can be incredibly hard. It might not sound like a big deal, but setting up the little things—like your gym bag—to lead a more active day-to-day can be a gamechanger.

Having a workout bag that's never in your way but always ready to go (just like your EDC) means one less excuse to stop you from picking it up, walking out the door, and crushing your goals.

In this guide, you'll find versatile bags that work double-time in and out of the gym, whether you're working, traveling, or exploring.

Aer Gym Duffel

For carrying your gym essentials and your day-to-day gear, most bags out there just won’t work out. The active carry specialists at Aer drop their latest Gym Duffel as a breath of fresh air for gymgoers seeking all-day functionality from their bag.

Past the Gym Duffel's streamlined, street-ready exterior, you’ll find key organizational features. Its large main compartment uses a ventilated mesh construction to let your gym gear air out after a tough training session. The rest of your essentials stay fresh in a dedicated clean clothes section and separated vented shoe compartment. Small valuables you wouldn’t carry in your gym clothes conveniently stow away in quick-access outer pockets.

It’s built tough with 1680D ballistic nylon and waterproof zippers so you can get that workout in, rain or shine, indoors or out. You can add this slick, versatile bag to your training setup at a special discount too. Save ten bucks with code EDC10 when pre-ordering a Gym Duffel at Aer’s website before March 14th.
