booq introduces the Pack Pro backpack
The team at booq (www.booqbags.com) has released a new backpack built for designers on the go: the $295 Pack Pro. “Because the original Cobra pack was a favorite among Booq fans, we wanted to evolve the design to include several key upgrades such as a larger, industrial plastic coil zipper, interior mesh pockets for added storage options, simplified straps for easy carrying and a redesigned front panel to better hold the pack’s shape and give a boxier, rigid look,” says Kema Subsomboon, lead product designer at booq. “The result is a more refined Pack Pro that gives Booq fans, who often travel for business, a comfortable solution for carrying their gear while maintaining the features they loved from the original Cobra pack.”    The Pack Pro’s 1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior with water-repellent coating and YKK high-performance zippers keep items safe from the elements outside.
