Are you tired of carrying around different bags for different occasions? Do you want something awesome that does everything while still being stylish? Well, we think we have something up our sleeves.
An everyday bag is pretty challenging to find. You have to consider some random market visits, work trips, hangout sessions with friends, and much more.
In this Tech I Want review, we will talk about the ultimate 5-in-1 WIT bag by Kalón that is built to enhance your modern lifestyle.
Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this is a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, the combination of several features into one or the introduction of a new feature to an old product are also considered to be an innovation.
Let’s examine the innovative features of the 5-in-1 WIT bag by Kalón.
Since it is a bag, we need to talk about its looks, practicality, and features.
To start, we have to agree that the WIT bag has been developed with convertibility and versatility in mind. In addition, The WIT bag’s minimal design allows it to look pretty professional, chic, effortless, soft, slouchy, and casual. Basically, it fits every occasion and event; you can even slide it through your luggage and use it for traveling!
It comes in two distinctive colors: midnight black and desert beige. Additionally, if the campaign hits a $70,000 stretch goal, they will offer the bag in Caramel color as well.
For practicality, the WIT bag definitely goes above and beyond with versatility. It can be turned into a shoulder bag, handbag, crossbody, backpack, and a top handle within seconds (hence the name, 5-in-1).
Moreover, you have the optional bag inserts bundle that comes with a laptop sleeve that fits a 15″ MacBook Pro, and a detachable bag insert with zipper closure that features 10 dedicated compartments that keeps all your tech and personal essentials organized.
One of the WIT bag’s most interesting features is that it’s made of cactus leather. The Kalón team believes in harmonizing with nature; therefore, they chose to use an innovative plant-based and cruelty-free material that is water-resistant, easy to clean, durable, and breathable.
The WIT bag is also equipped with metal feet to keep the bottom part clean when you place it on the floor. Additionally, It has a secure turn lock, a hidden magnet that helps with the bag’s closure, and straps that are detachable and adjustable; plus, it comes with shoulder support which makes the bag a backpack.
The bag also has quick-access pockets, a secret zipper pocket, a water bottle pocket, and a key holder.
The only downside is that it does not bring any groundbreaking innovations to the market.
How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.
