Dialing in your needs and having the right bag to use at any given moment is what EDC is all about. Bonus points if your choice of EDC bag is durable and fulfills your needs for both your daily tasks and long-distance travel. The Nomatic Navigator Series was designed with the premise of having the right bag for every adventure. It combines a clean, streamlined aesthetic with durable water-resistant materials to give you bags you can take everywhere on any given day. A simple bar (or two) of reflective material combines with a subdued Nomatic logo for distinct yet understated branding that makes these go-anywhere bags also go well with anything.

The individual pieces of the Navigator series were made to work well with each other with a unified design language, and they come in three categories: three Travel bags for long-distance trip packing, three Everyday carry bags, and finally, three Accessories that you can combine and take along with the other products. This bag ecosystem is offered on their Kickstarter page in different bundles with different options to match your personal carry needs. All of the bags’ exteriors come in 500D Kodra with a kiss coating on the front face, with PU Leather Rock T2000 panels for the Nomatic logo. The new signature reflective bars also come with micro pieces of glass as part of the texture to ensure super bright reflectivity. The bags all come with YKK and Zoom zippers, with custom metal pulls as part of the new design.

The versatile Navigator Travel Backpack 32L was made with the traveler in mind, featuring a sleeve for up to a 16″ laptop among its other organization features. This includes multiple stretch pockets, zippered mesh pockets, internal compression straps, and an RFID pocket for your valuables. Load-lifting straps help ease the load on your shoulders and combines with internal aluminum stays, a tuck-away waist strap, and an EVA foam back panel with black bonded Spandura with a harness system that lets you comfortably carry this pack, no matter how heavy the load. An easy access top pocket for small items, external carry straps for light items such as rainwear, and a hidden ID card slot are features appreciated during travels. Four grab handles and a pass-through strap for keeping this pack settled on the trolley handle of your bigger luggage make the Navigator Travel Backpack a great companion during your longer trips. In case you were packing more than expected on your return trip, a zippered system lets it easily expand to 41L of capacity.

For their roller luggage option, the Navigator Carry-On 37L combines water-resistant materials with a hard Makrolon plastic shell to protect up to five days’ worth of your clothes and gear during long assignments or trips. Like the Travel Backpack, it’s also expandable, this time to 45L, and features similar internal organization options. A separate compartment for your laptop, tech, and documents keeps them safe and organized, while a 3-stage retractable aluminum handle and four exterior grab handles ensure you’re never without a way to grab onto the Navigator Carry-On. Both the Travel Backpack and the Carry-On feature custom tamper-proof zipper handles that interlock and can be used with a TSA lock for enhanced security while travelling. Replaceable Hersun wheels ensure the Carry-On keeps on rolling.

For the Everyday bags, we have a backpack and two different sizes of slings. Featuring the same materials, build quality, and aesthetics of the two previous bags from the Travel series, the Navigator Backpack 15L is your everyday commuter pack that can handle up to a a 16″ laptop and has a foam formed back panel similar to it’s bigger brother for comfort and airflow. A hidden bottle pocket keeps the streamlined look even when you’re packing water, and two removable external carry straps let you easily bring along your coat or jacket. A concealed front pocket lets you stash you smaller and flatter items as well as your keys via an internal leash. And because this is also designed for travel, three exterior grab handles make the Navigator Backpack easy to retrieve from cabin storage or wherever you choose to put it.

The Navigator Sling 6L fits up to an 11“ laptop or large tablet, and features a hidden bottle pocket that lets you bring along a full water bottle—something that most slings don’t let you do. There’s plenty of internal organization for your tech and gear, including an RFID-blocking zippered pocket and a quick access card slot on the main strap which is useful for public transport cards. A pull-out stabilizer strap keeps the sling stable and secure as you zip through your everyday adventures. The smaller Sling 1L is meant for cross-body or fanny pack style carry, but is no slouch in the capacity department as a zippered expansion system lets it go from 1 liter to 3, and also doubles as a way for your to carry a water bottle. Both slings feature an EVA foam back panel for comfort and avoiding that sweaty spot on your back or chest.

Last but not least, you have three Accessories bags meant to work well with the rest of the Navigator series. The Vacuum Bag 2.0 lets you compress your soft goods like clothing for easy packing into your luggage, with or without the use of an actual vacuum. The Tech Organizer features multiple coated mesh pockets and internal elastic straps to let you organize the gadgets and tech you may want to bring along on your trip. It features a loop for hanging this clamshell pouch at your destination, as well as a hand strap that lets you hold it while you quickly access its contents. Finally, the Navigator Collapsible Backpack is a full excursion pack with two external water bottle pockets and a slot for a 15“ laptop or a bladder for even more water capacity, making it a prefect companion for your walk-around exploration at your destination. It’s lightweight and durable, and folds to fit perfectly in the internal zippered pockets of the Travel Backpack or Navigator Carry-On, keeping out of the way until you need it.

For a solid selection of luggage, bags, and accessories that can help you see your daily and out-of-town adventures through, the new Nomatic Navigator Series has you covered with fresh and functional designs. Check out the entire line at their fully funded Kickstarter campaign page below.
