The minimalist Bomber Barrel Duffel Bag has recently launched its Kickstarter campaign gaining amazing success in a very short period of time. Five hours after its launch, the project reached its goal, and in only two weeks it has raised over $200,000. Read more about the design below, and head over to their Kickstarter Page to back up the project!
Inspired by the classic barrel duffels of the 20th Century, The Bomber Barrel design team set out to create a timeless and stylish everyday bag suitable for carrying anything. The Bomber Barrel redefines style by presenting itself in a modern and simple barrel structure: purely austere and clean.
The Bomber Barrel was conceived out of necessity. We wanted to create a timeless duffel bag design that could be used by anyone, all the time, and be an essential item to take with you to the office, gym, on hikes, and in all of your adventures.
The Bomber Barrel is an ultra grade nylon duffel bag designed for today’s active man; the athlete, the adventurer, the professional or the minimalist. It was created to accommodate the lifestyles of the ambitious, the motivated and the driven. With its minimal design, lightweight and black-colored nylon ripstop; it’s endlessly versatile. The jet black color creates depth and radiates its bearer’s extravagant elegance.
Although most duffel bags hold everyday essentials, they’re usually just too big and bulky and unnecessarily heavy. The Bomber Barrel, weighing in at only 14 ounces, holds everything a man-on-the-go is likely to need thanks to a streamlined design. The main compartment holds clothes & shoes while an interior side pocket keeps one’s phone, wallet and other valuables close at hand.
Our team spent countless grueling hours, coming up with a duffel bag that is able to accommodate your everyday lifestyle. We had to consider a design that was not only for the gym, but also perfect for the office, city life, outdoors and anywhere in-between.
The Barrel Bomber team is working directly with their manufacturers eliminating all the usual middlemen found in manufacturing. This allows them to eliminate unnecessary costs and retail markups insuring a very affordable price without compromising on quality. Indeed, Bomber Barrel doesn’t believe in retail markups and the supply chains that dictate them.
All of their bags are offered at wholesale pricing to the general public. While these steep discounts are already generous, backers of this crowdfunding campaign will enjoy special early bird pricing never to be seen again.
