Pop UP PACK
ultralight + structured
Although simple, most daypacks provide no structure.
We're talking REI's iconic Flashpack or Cotopaxi's loud Luzon.
The benefit of having a packable bag is great for traveling light,
but carrying a saggy, formless pack isn't for me.
Can a packable daypack also be structured?
What forms could be made with lightweight ripstop and thin wire framing loops?
What's relevant and on brand for the company?
I pulled the wires from some folding frisbees off Amazon to play with.
I made a few patterns in Illustrator and made a small prototype.
The gif to the right is a pop-up fanny pack. It's no backpack, but a start.
Continued prototyping and exploration of patterns.
Increase scale, source ribbing wires, add straps + trims.
