If you're one to balk at throwing gym shoes into a bag with your clothes and your computer then you'll appreciate the new duffel pack coming from the designers and athletes at SF-based Aer. Allen Choi, a former Incase industrial designer responsible for designing bags and cases for Apple products, is the man behind the design. It's a new kind of gym bag that has a clean, modern aesthetic and holds both your gym and office essentials with compartments to keep everything separate and organized, Choi tells us. The bag is only in Day Seven of its Kickstarter campaign and has already raised 40% of its $45,000 goal amount. The early bird price is already sold out, but there's still the chance to purchase a bag for $149—a $30 discount from retail price. A December 18 delivery means this is the perfect holiday gift for that commuter-athlete in your life.
