RUNBOX 2.0 BACKPACK PRO

Cars are terrible for the environment. Producing a car uses steel, rubber, plastic and paint- and that's before they even make it onto the roads.
 
The smog, carbon monoxide and other toxic pollutants leave car exhaust pipes at the street level, allowing humans to breath the toxins right into their lungs.
 
By ditching vehicles and using alternative modes of transports, we can reduce our negative impact on the environment.
 
By running to and from work, you not only reduce your carbon footprint but you are also getting your daily exercise in so you can forgo the expensive gym membership.
 
The problem is that you can't run to the office in your work clothes. How are you going to get all your personal belongings and your work clothes to your destination wrinkle free?

 

History of IAMRUNBOX

When IAMRUNBOX CEO, Kirill Noskov started waking up early to run to work, he realised that there was a lack of products designed for people on the go. He started IAMRUNBOX to create backpacks and accessories which are sustainable, functional and motion-friendly.

They have grown to a large company that ships worldwide, makes 6 different types of Backpacks as well as running masks, shoe bags and laundry bags.

RUNBOX 2.0 BACKPACK PRO

The Backpack Pro 2.0 was designed specifically for the run commuter. Packed full of features such as anti-bounce, water resistance and being ergonomic, the Backpack Pro 2.0 is a run commuter’s dream.

The Front

The front of the IAMRUNBOX is a protective hard-shell which is water resistant and lightweight at the same time. It has a rough, textured pattern on it which is anti-fingerprint. It has the IAMRUNBOX rubberised logo sewed onto it which is orange and white on the orange version of the backpack and all-black on the black colourway.

There are two outer straps included which are detachable. These straps are designed for you to clip accessories such as safety lights onto or for you to place an additional bag under the straps for extra carrying space.

 

The Back

The ergonomic back panel is soft to the touch with four, raised, padded pods on the corners to increase airflow while it’s on your back.

These raised pods also prevent sweat from your back getting onto the entire back panel.


Inside Main Compartment

This area is designed to hold your clothes. It can easily fit two shirts, a pair of long pants and socks.

Unfortunately the main compartment is too small to fit a pair of shoes so you either have to wear your running trainers at work or you have to carry an extra bag with your work shoes in it.

There is a zippered pouch on the outside of the compartment which is perfect for a small towel.

Accessories Compartment

This is where you can store your laptop which can be up to 15 inches in size. An elasticated band prevents the laptop from moving around while on the run.

The two other pouches below can fit your wallet, keys, cellphone, sunscreen etc.

The buckle of the strap doubles as a whistle so you can let pedestrians know that you are coming up behind them without shouting.

If you still use wired earphones, you can thread the wire through the rubber headphone opening.

A great feature of these waistband compartments is that if you don’t want to use them, they can be hooked together to sit flush against the back panel so that they stay out of the way.

When in use, the waist band compartments are held in place by a buckle. The straps are adjustable and the excess strap leftover after tightening can be tucked inside the pouch pockets.
