entermodal-weekenderIf there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that i’m infatuated with duffel bags (and nutella) and this one you see here is from Entermodal via Portland, Oregon. Created and owned by lead designer Larry Olmstead, Entermodal, is “now recognized for timeless design, meticulous attention to detail, use of beautiful materials and a deep committment to environmental sustainability” from Olmstead’s knowledge of ergonomics, his engineering, and passion to create a brand committed and willing to sustainable practices at every level of operation.

What makes Entermodal so unique amongst its peers, is it’s deep understanding of load management, weight transfer, and fit which is found in their revolutionary moulded shoulder strap, that is designed to keep the bag in perfect balance even when moving.flipwalletentermodal

The pocketing and organizational layout of the bag allow for maximum usage and order, and my ultimate favorite design scheme of the bag, is the riveting you see. So that not only the design of it stands out in look, but also stands above in function.

The rivet system employed on each bag facilitate recycling of the bags components, assist in managing the load inside the bag, and insure the structure of the bag is maintained, even when nearly empty.

The structural integrity of a duffel bag is extremely important especially when you quite possibly use it for multiple jobs. Usually, my bagz can be used for basketball or jet setting. In either case, i’ll have shoes in there that will, over time, dismantle the bags structure. Larry, Mr. Olmstead, if you’re reading this, you have a new model/spokesman. Email me!
