Aer Sling Pouch

When it comes to EDC, slings strike a particularly sweet spot. They give you just the right amount of extra space to carry a few more essentials for the day's needs, but small enough that the sling won't be cumbersome even after a long day. Good slings let you do more with less, and the ones built for EDC are made to last. If anyone knows their slings, it's Aer. With a few slings already on the market and a mastery over materials and manufacturing for their other daily-use bags, they know what it takes to make a suitable everyday sling. And with summer right around the corner, the Sling Pouch is just the right lightweight addition to your EDC.

Thanks to a wide, flat design, the Sling Pouch is meant to stay close on your body. This allows for both better security and ergonomics, since it's meant to wrap around flush on your torso to keep your gear close, rather than rattling around when you're on the move. The design also allows a versatile loadout despite its 0.5” height; a sealed front zip pocket allows quick access to important essentials, while its main compartment has elastic and mesh pockets to help organize the rest. Flat items like a phone, wallet, passport, and power bank will be right at home.

The Sling Pouch also takes on Aer's signature design language for fit and finish, which means water-resistant 1680D Cordura nylon paired with heavy-duty sealing YKK zippers to ensure your gear stays dry. Zippers are fitted with Duraflex pulls for ease of use, while a slim, adjustable nylon strap takes care of hang time while worn. And at only half a pound by itself, the Sling Pouch adds a ton of utility without the extra baggage.

When it's too much for your pockets but too little to justify a daypack, a sling is there to save the day. Check out Aer's summer-ready Sling Pouch at the link below.

Aer Go Collection

It's easy to organize your essentials in a daypack, or have the perfect pouch system when you're on your regular commute, working the daily grind, or frequenting your favorite haunts. But stepping off your usual path can catch you off guard in unexpected ways. This is where Aer's new Go collection comes into play. As the name suggests, these bags help you plan (and pack) when you're trapped between needing to carry just a little bit more than expected and not being able to spare the space for an extra bag or three. All in a package that's a cut above the packable bags you're used to and presented in the sleek and efficient design language Aer's products are known for.

When you think of packable bags, the image that comes to mind is usually an unstructured mess of lightweight material, loose straps, and flimsy zippers, all in pursuit of being as convenient as possible to stow away in the rest of your bags or luggage. But with the goal of using the best possible materials while maintaining functionality, the Go collection recalls features of Aer's other lines while optimally performing as foldable and portable bags.

Each of the bag use 300D Cordura ripstop rather than Aer's usual 1000D or 1680D ballistic nylon, shaving much of the weight while still maintaining excellent resilience and water resistance. Compartments are locked down with YKK zippers, which now feature easy-grip Hypalon zipper pulls, while Duraflex hardware takes care of clasps and buckles. New to Aer is the collection's use of a Fidlock magnetic fastener for each of the bags' quick-access external pockets, providing both convenience and security in one satisfying click.

Whether preparing for unexpected trips to the store or making sure you can take home your travel haul, Aer's Go collection is small in stature but big in features and convenience. Check out the line at Aer's site at the link below.

Aer 2018 Travel Collection

As EDCers, you probably carry a lot of gear when going about your busy day. Whether it's the daily grind or hopping on a plane to get away from it all, keeping your essentials organized is a top priority. And when it comes to doing it right, few companies do it as well as Aer. Whether making it easy to keep up an active lifestyle or sleekly streamlining the way you work, they have years of experience behind their bags. With this year's new Travel Collection they take a fresh look at their popular jetsetter line, making it easier than ever to stay prepared on your next commute or adventure.

Aer's new Travel Collection takes the 5 bags from the original line and gives them some fresh new upgrades. For the two larger bags, the Travel Pack 2 and Flight Pack 2, comfort and security features were added to make them even more (literally) painless to travel with. For the Travel Pack 2, a new removable hip belt, redesigned shoulder straps, and new lockable zippers get paired with a luggage pass-through and a new quick access laptop pocket to make it a strong option for one-bag travel. With its 3 ways to carry, The Flight Pack 2  gets a new front organization pocket, side bottle pocket, and the same new pass-through and secure zippers as the Travel Pack. It's a versatile work bag that can handle all your work essentials, no matter how light or heavy they get.

The Travel Sling and Day Sling 2 round out the collection with smaller offerings for a regular EDC or daypack when fewer essentials are needed for your activities. The larger Travel Sling gives you a sleek, rectangular space that's perfect for carrying a laptop or large tablet. A 2-way sling strap lets you strap the bag flush against your back or as a messenger for quick access to its top pocket and main compartment, the latter of which comes with roomy interior organization. The updated Day Sling 2 is perfect for EDC when your pockets just aren't enough, with a redesigned ergonomic strap and a sleeker profile that still fits up to a 7.9” tablet within its inner pockets.

And last but not least, the Travel Kit is Aer's take on the classic dopp kit, fitted with a stowaway YKK hook that gives you a hanging option to keep your bathroom essentials within reach (and away from wet surfaces). Two interior zippered compartments let you separate your product, while an exterior toothbrush holder makes it easy to dry yours off when wrapping up your routine. And like all of their bags, the Travel Kit comes decked out with Aer's signature design combination of black weather-resistant 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon (with other color options in a heather gray 900D polyester and a 1050D black camo nylon), AquaGuard YKK zippers, and water-resistant interior lining.

Whether running daily errands or packing for your dream vacation, Aer's new Travel Collection gives you the functionality you need in a sleek style that's all their own. The collection just launched today on Aer's site, which you can check out at the link below.

Aer Camo Collection

Putting your best foot forward both at the office and at the gym means keeping all your essentials in check, especially if you're an active EDCer making the most of your day. This means your go-to EDC bag needs to work as hard as you do when carrying your gear. With plenty of successful crowdfunding campaigns and collections spanning the entire working, active, and travel lifestyle, Aer have shown that they've got your back  when it comes to keeping you organized. Their new Camo Collection puts a new spin on their flagship bags, giving them a fresh and functional aesthetic to fit right in your active EDC.

For those new to Aer's gym/work bags, you have a choice of two sizes to fit all your gear. The more compact Fit Pack 2 gives you 18.8L of capacity that features a front-loading main compartment and ventilated shoe slot for ample storage for all your workout gear. Its rear compartment comes with a padded laptop slot and pockets for your essentials, and a top handle and comfortable mesh straps and back panel let you carry even the heaviest loadouts comfortably. The larger Duffel Pack 2 comes with a bigger volume at 24.6L and larger dedicated pockets for more essentials like a water bottle. Both bags are also kitted out with sealing YKK zippers and Duraflex plastic zipper pulls for ease of operation.

As the name implies, new to the Camo Collection is the use of camouflage 1000D Cordura nylon for both bags' exterior construction, resulting in a lighter weight and more supple feel in hand compared to the usual 1680D nylon. You may be familiar with it due to its popularity for plenty of mil-spec tactical bags thanks to its strength-to-weight ratio and durability. The Camo Collection comes in a MultiCam black pattern that fits the stealthy, tactical aesthetic, so you can add a standout pack to your EDC without sacrificing performance.

Whether for work, play, or completing the look on your mil-spec EDC, Aer's Camo Collection is ready to take on your tireless days. Pick up the Fit Pack 2 or Duffel Pack 2 direct from Aer at the link below.

Aer Work Collection

The bag you carry says a lot about you. And if you mean business, Aer's latest Work Collection of bags was made for you. Aer has shown their skill for designing sleek, dual-purpose urban EDC bags with their previous Travel and Active collections, all equipped with activity-specific features and EDC-worthy materials. The new Work Collection is no different, giving mobile professionals sleek and minimal pack options to organize, protect, and keep their essentials handy.

The Work Collection takes Aer's familiar silhouettes and gives them some thoughtful upgrades, keeping in mind the needs of the professionals that will be using them. You have five bags to choose from depending on your capacity needs and carry preference. Each design features a coated, water-resistant front panel and Cordura 1680D nylon construction throughout the rest of the pack exterior. The plain flat front gives the bags Aer's signature clean look, letting the bags fit in any office, whether it's a boardroom or your favorite coffee shop.

Three of the bags—the larger Tech Pack, the Day Pack, and the Commuter Bag—come with the Work Collection's new feature: a toolbox-inspired, free-standing design that lets the bags stay upright on a flat surface. Paired with the interior organization and half-zip design of of the bags' main compartments, this keeps your essentials within reach so you can easily grab a pen or cable without having to fumble with a bag always in danger of falling over. The Tech Pack's larger 16.2L frame gives it space for three compartments, two side pockets and two padded handles. The Day Pack follows suit with a smaller, 15.4L option for a lighter carry for daily commutes. And for EDCers who prefer slings and messenger bags, the Commuter Bag gives a 10.2L option with a large, organized main compartment paired with a dedicated laptop compartment.

Also part of the Work Collection are the Tech Sling and the Cable Kit. The Tech Sling bumps up the capacity of their original Day Sling up to 7L from 4.5, and gives it an adjustable padded strap you can wear two ways. The Cable Kit helps manage all your tech and smaller essentials with its two zip pockets, internal strap and pocket organization, and quick access external pocket for additional storage.

No matter how and where you work, the right bag is essential to your productivity. Take your pick from Aer's new Work Collection at the link below.

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.

Aer Travel Pack

Packing for a trip is hard enough, and ridiculously long security lines at the airport as of late only make things worse. So unless your favorite part of traveling is standing for hours in one part of the airport, jumping through some hoops for a few minutes, then finally waiting in another part of the airport, it's important to pack your essentials the right way to avoid that mess.

The Aer Travel Pack carries everything you'll need for a weekend trip, designed with efficiency in mind so you can skip the lines and headache of airport security. It's sized to fit carry-on requirements (saving you a couple minutes and a checked bag fee) with a structured main compartment that lies flat and unzips fully for easy packing. When it's time to empty your pockets, you can quickly stash the contents in any one of the three zippered pockets on the front and top of the bag. The quick access laptop compartment lets you pull it out fast and keep the line moving.

Its organized layout makes it ideal for business trips or general day-to-day EDC, too. Between all the slots and pockets in the front admin compartment and the suspended laptop sleeve, you can haul your entire mobile office on your back. The bag even slims down to a more manageable silhouette for EDC thanks to a set of four compression straps. You can carry it confidently knowing it's built tough with 1680D ballistic nylon, YKK zips, and Duraflex buckle hardware throughout.

It's available now at its fully-funded campaign on Kickstarter, making Aer three for three with successful projects. Check out the Travel Pack and its accompanying dopp kit in more detail at the link below.
