Along

Adaptable Backpacks

About the project

Along, the backpack brand dedicated to urban improvisation.

Because we live several lives in one day (work, bike commute, workout…) and we like going out the city to enjoy jumping into the water or having a walk in the forest, Along developps bags that adapts to work, sport and week-ends. As Ludo (watch the video clip) we do not want to carry several bags for every daily activity anymore. It’s why our first bag : BaSe's volume get up to 30 liters for your last minute groceries, contains a waterproof removable inner bag for your sport items, carry big objects thanks to its external strap, is water repelent, protects your computer, can be carried as a backpack or a messenger bag. Welcome to daily urban adventure !

BaSe, the backpack

BaSe, what does that mean ?

Big & Small > Its volume evolves with your needs

To get ready for improvisation, BaSe’s volume get up to 30 liters (cabin luggage). In everyday life, it keeps an elegant low profil, and when you need more volume, BaSe get bigger thanks to its simple adjustment system on sides and bottom.

Business & Sport > the backpack that follows you for all your activities

Protect your computer and your back

In order not to mix your private life with your working items (avoid grabbing your jogging instead of your computer in in front of your boss), the foam back panel protect and separate your computer from the rest. BaSe carry a 15 inches laptop, your Ipad or any booklet and documents. You can acces to this compartment from the top and the side.

Plouf, the removalbe waterproof bag

BaSe contains Plouf, its inner removable and waterproof bag. Plouf is useful in many situations : bring your lunchbox at work, carry swimming suit, a water bottle, last minute groceries… It can be attached inside BaSe and hung to the cloackroom’s coat hooks.

 

It is attached inside BaSe, to never forget it.

Plouf carries your groceries, your lunchbox, your swimming suit…

Its handle is specially designed to hang Plouf in the cloackroom.

Back & Shoulder > Backpack or messenger

BaSe evolves from a backpack to a messenger bag by simply detaching the shoulder pressure button. Every pocket has an top and a side access.

Find your belongings easily !

The inner colo is a light grey for a better visibility. The main front zipper can open wide or only on the bottom.

Find your keys

A small inner pocket has been design especially for your personal items and keys.

Under the rain

BaSe is water repelent and every zipper are waterproof. So don’t worry about the weather and enjoy being outside.

No more space… there is still space outside

The front removable strap helps to carry big items.

Evolutive inner compartments

We will soon design new inner removable compartments with the same mindset than Plouf. Fly will be transparent for small plane cabin items and Miam keeps your lunchbox cool. Thanks to the inner attache system, the compartments can be attached and removed easily.
