The latest FREITAG backpack is a bag that’s developed out of the friendship between a used truck tarp and a wannabe airbag. Its name: F707 STRATOS.
The fabric the F707 STRATOS is made of was originally designed to explode in an emergency and save lives as an airbag.
OK, F707 STRATOS may not save lives. But sometimes, it may just save your everyday life. Because despite all the mindfulness and downsizing, there are times when your hands are full, you need more room and a bigger bag. And you need it fast. That’s when the F707 STRATOS steps up to the plate. A lightweight backpack that doubles as a shoulder bag and, when you need it, unfolds from the tarp pocket as fast as an exploding airbag.
So, while the A-stock stuff, the authentic airbag material, has long been packed in behind a steering wheel, literally waiting for an accident to happen, our B-stock fabric has been living the good life. One full of the purpose you give it and free of fear from the sudden “Boom!”. Not as a lifesaver. Not as an airbag. But, finally, believe it or not, as a bag.
