LA-based leather travel goods specialists This Is Ground seems to genuinely grasp the various trials and tribulations related to traveling with tech in tow. Their latest backpack, the Venture 2, delivers a path of least resistance for anyone who has to navigate airport security regularly with a laptop and the inevitable cadre of cables and accessories required for work, sporting an array of intelligently designed interchangeable organization features engineered to simplify packing and expedite access.
From the exterior, the luxuriously soft vegetable tanned Tuscan leather backpack leaves a deceptively minimalist and simple impression. But unzip the front pod pocket of the Venture 2 and the backpack reveals its thoughtfully developed organizational options, including a front pod storage unit and a dedicated micro-fiber lined slot for a tablet, stylus, headphones, and power adapter housed within the backpack’s main compartment.
This Is Ground has always designed products with modularity in mind, and the new Venture 2 continues the brand’s history, featuring numerous options specifically suited to mix and match according to the needs and durations of travel. To this point, the backpack’s redesigned front pod also features new interchangeable inserts fashioned after the brand’s highly adaptable Mod line of travel/tech organization accessories, offering a surprisingly wide selection of slots and pockets for such a small compartment:
- Cord slots
- Cards + cash slots
- Writing tools slots
- Deep battery pocket
- Large catch-all zipper pocket
- Versatile pockets for small goods
The ability to further expand according to need is offered with the announcement of three different styles of Packs – Tech, Clean, Sock – each designed to organize specific gear and slide securely within the Venture 1 and 2 regular size backpacks.
The Venture 2 backpack launches today in two sizes – Regular and Slim – with the option to choose from Black, Bomber, Cognac, Particle Grey and Toffee dyed leather to coordinate with most every tastefully organized traveler’s wardrobe.
