Introducing the BACKPACK mini


by Luke Paka July 20, 2016 5 Comments

We are very happy to finally introduce you to the newest addition to the Invisible bag family. As you can tell from the name, this is our most compact backpack yet. The things we carry vary greatly from person to person, and a regular size backpack for me can be an oversized black hole for someone else. But while having extra space wouldn't be all that bad, the size can often make a bag look aesthetically less pleasing on a smaller body. There is no one-size-fits-all solution out there, so a smaller backpack felt like a natural next stop for us.

A little bit about it:

 

Size


size-comparison-invisible-backpack-mini

When compared to the Invisible Backpack v2, the Backpack mini is smaller both in height and depth, making it a much better fit for people that may have felt the other backpack was a bit too big for them. The reduction in space is noticeable, but there was more than enough for us when testing it. Actually, thanks to it being more compact, it felt much better than having a half empty v2. So if your carry is on the lighter side, the smaller size is definitely something I would recommend. The satisfaction that comes from owning something that fits you is much more valuable than the security felt from having some extra "just in case" space you might never use. 

 

Design

The smaller size didn't agree with our current Invisible Backpack v2 design. The reduction in size just made it look, well, weird. A new design was required, so we turned back to our v1 for some inspiration. The outside pockets and laptop compartment is similar to those found in the Invisible Tote.

Given the smaller size, we kept the design simple and only added the essentials so that it wouldn't feel cluttered. This means that there is no expandable inner divider or a bottom compartment for that matter. But you don't really miss it as everything is close enough as it is.

Thought people may like to know that a 15" MacBook Pro can easily fit in it.

Thanks for the explanation Luke, I’ve just ordered one for the days when I don’t need the capacity V1 version I already have (it can hold a surprising amount)

Hey Will. It’s not sold out, just not released yet. “SOLD OUT” is a default thing it says when we don’t have something in stock. But fair enough, I should try and change it to avoid the confusion. :)
Glad you like it Ken!

Looks great, and I want one, but why email me about it when it is already sold out?

Looks nice.

Loving my Invisible Backpack V1 at the moment but was not so keen on the V2 version when it was announced. I’m glad you guys decided to base the mini of V1 version. I may end up buying one.
