Defined by an ethos of visit, travel, explore and respond, the recently launched surf lifestyle brand VSTR postures to inspire a spirit of discovery through experience. Founded by 11-time ASP world champion Kelly Slater, and backed by surf-goods mainstay Quiksilver, the premium apparel and soft goods company highlights simplistic design and purposeful direction, offering a collection of modern travel essentials for the ocean, road and journey in between. Building on a style of deliberate expedition, VSTR teamed with NYC’s Partners & Spade to ideate and design the brand’s first piece of carry-all luggage. Built to support the rigors of extended trek, the 16″ x 12″ x 30″ Nomadic Pack pairs waxed cotton canvas exteriors with nylon interiors for performance waterproofing, as well as separate bottom-located, aqua-guard zip wet/dry storage. Equipped with stow-able ergonomic back straps, heavy duty zip-off messenger bag, zipper pull tabs intended to double as leash ties, and a deployable lightweight nylon hammock with dedicated stuff-sack pocket, the pack is also specifically designed to conveniently fit the entire VSTR clothing line.
