The EVENaBAG PLUS is a super bag for your busy lifestyle. First of all, it is a classy messenger bag that can hold all your gear – including a 15” laptop, wallet, keys and important papers. The interior is carefully designed to hold all the stuff that goes with today’s needs – small pockets for easy-to-lose stuff, a clip for your keys, wide pockets for files, and a zipper pocket for important papers. It is a classy bag suitable for students, business persons, or a stay-at-home person with a busy schedule. It is even roomy enough to use as a diaper bag, and the handy foldout mat can be used for a changing table. But it just doesn’t stop there.
The EVENaBAG PLUS and the EVENaBAG CLASSIC are coming equipped with fiberglass rods inside the bag to form a back, and a fold-down side that allows the user to convert it to a seat. Whether you are attending a conference where the audience is seated on bench-style bleacher seats, a backyard barbeque, the big game or just stopping to rest after a stroll or a jog in the park, the seat is easy to create by folding down the side, and clipping the adjustable straps to the seat. The bags can be tightened or loosened, adjusting the seat for user comfort. The top of the bag can be fastened with Velcro fasteners to protect the contents so that all the contents can stay in the bag while you are using it as a seat.
Too tired to sit up? The EVENaBAG can also lie out flat, with the pouch acting as a pillow. The foldout seat is lightly padded to create a comfortable mat. Suppose there is a comfortable seat or bench, or you are fine with sitting on a rock or a stump, but you don’t want your stuff sitting around for the ants to climb into it. There is an additional belt strap you can attach to the buckles of the cover. The fold-out can be strapped into the seat position, creating a handy shelf or table where you can keep your lunch or work out of reach of critters or small children. It can even be used as a laptop desk. However, the EVENaBAG should not be used as a seat for children while hanging – it is not constructed in a way that would allow a child to sit in it safely while it is suspended. It can also be used as wall storage for your personal gear.
And, yes, it is EVENaBAG. EVENaBAG PLUS comes in three colors, and is made from water resistant non-pvc materials. If you like the look of the bag, but don’t need the extra features, EVENaBAG BASIC has all the pockets and pouches features, as well as the water resistant exterior found in the PLUS version, without the seat, mat or hanger features. If you would like to step up the look of your messenger bag, EVENaBAG CLASSIC, available through the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, is made of genuine leather and comes in three colors. All of the bags come with a sturdy carrying strap that has an optional waist-cinch strap to keep your bag secure whether jogging, climbing or running for your bus or air flight. It even comes with a place to attach a bicycle reflector for those unexpected late evening bike trips. Even with all of these incredible features, the EVENaBAG messenger pouch looks good enough to carry with just about anything – including your professional office wear.
Rewards for pledging to this campaign are various EVENaBAG packages. It is also the perfect gift for that person on your list who has everything – from students to business persons. Whether the recipient lives in the city or has a rugged, outdoor lifestyle, this bag is so versatile it can be used by anyone. If the crowdfunding campaign is successful, the bags will be sent out in April 2016, to anywhere in the world. However, some Early Bird specials come with a Christmas gift certificate so that you can gift that special someone during the December 2015 holiday season.
