The D3 Traveller was originally commissioned for field work in diverse and challenging environments. In NYC one week, Kabul the next, the luggage needed to be discreet enough to pass unnoticed when the situation required, to cope with the best of a city’s pickpockets to the worst of its commute. A go-bag for the global traveller.
We made the D1 on a hunch there was a better way to travel. It took us a year of real-world testing to understand its potential. The second prototype, the D2, introduced an internal compression system, refinements to the strap, and the ability to convert to a backpack. Another full year of testing later, the D3 is about the details: the exact proportions of the inner to outer shells; custom aluminium hardware on the strap; attention to every seam and stitch.
A team of D3 field-testers provided feedback and travelogues from around the globe. From the initial spark and after three years of design, research and development we have nothing left to add or take away.
