Aer’s Tech Trio: A Sling, a Pack, and a Packable Powerhouse

Aer updated its Tech line this month with the third edition of its X-Pac sling briefcase. The new Tech Sling 3 features a lightweight, waterproof VX-42 sailcloth made in the United States by Dimension-Polyant. You can keep a professional look wherever you go, and the removable padded sling strap makes this a very versatile laptop bag for your everyday carry. The sailcloth construction means that the Aer Tech Sling 3 weighs just 1.2 lbs in total, and that’s while giving you a full nine liters of space and enough padding to keep your 14” laptop or tablet safe. There’s tons of other organizational space inside the bag, which is also colored bright orange to help you quickly identify the gear you’ve packed inside.

If you need slightly more space than the Tech Sling 3 can provide, Aer also released the newly updated Day Pack 3 and Tech Pack 3 in X-Pac sailcloth. They’re also great options if you prefer the comfort and stability of an everyday carry backpack. Both backpacks also help you maximize cabin space as they are within TSA compliance and compatible with carry-on size limits on most airlines worldwide.

The Day Pack 3 is 17.25″ tall and weighs 2.7 lbs, providing 14L of space inside. The dual-compartment design lets you separate your gear and tech essentials, keeping things tidy inside with the dedicated organizational space. There’s room for up to a 16″ desktop replacement laptop inside the padded laptop sleeve, and the hidden AirTag tracker pouch gives you peace of mind as you travel. For quick access items, the top waterproof YKK zippered compartment has enough space to hold sunglasses, cell phone, and passport inside. While the minimalist look of the back looks very streamlined, the bag retains the side water bottle compartment to help you stay hydrated as you go about your daily business.

The slightly larger 16L of space afforded by the updated Aer Tech Pack 3 in X-Pac lets you maximize your loadout without adding too much bulk. At 3.0 lbs, this is the heaviest bag in the new lineup, but that’s still at least two pounds lighter than the standard ballistic nylon laptop bag before you add your gear into the mix. Unlike those other bags, the Tech Pack 3 has a structured design that holds its shape even when you don’t fill it with gear, clothing, and other essentials. At 18″ tall, it’s slightly more prominent on your back than the Aer Day Pack 3, but not by much, and the luggage passthrough at the rear means you can cart it around an airport terminal or train station easily with any roller bag you pack alongside.
