Over the years, I’ve been sent a lot of stuff. But I always love getting bags — yes, I’m a shameless bag whore. And the last one I was sent was the JetPack Slim from Orbit Concepts, a DJ bag designed to be your day bag as well. I wrote a glowing draft review, and then set about doing a longer term test — it became my day bag for a full three months, and I fell for it even more. And then over-zealous site maintenance obliterated all my draft pieces, and the long review was lost. Arse.

But one thing irked me — as a day bag, the black nylon didn’t reflect my personal style. I’m of a certain age and aesthetic, one that demands canvas, antiqued leather, and brass fitting, thus a black nylon ruck sack clashed with the rest of my chic. Obviously, others have made similar comments, thus the JetPack Slim is now available in two new colurways — grey (or gray as Orbit Concepts would say) and camo for those of a rather more hip hop or undercover DJ mission disposition.

Orbit Concepts to Launch 3 versions of the JetPack Slim DJ Backpack on  September 25th, 2018

Orange, California, September 19th 2015 – Orbit Concepts is proud to release 2 bold new versions of their wildly popular JetPack Slim DJ backpack. The JetPack Slim is now available in 3 versions, modern looking Gray and military style Camo, along with an upgraded version of the original All-Black version.  Originally released in 2016, Orbit Concept’s JetPack Slim revolutionized the concept of a DJ backpack as a full functioning DJ backpack in a fashionably compact day bag design, quickly garnering widespread acclaim.

The new Gray and Camo designs feature the same interior and form that made the original JetPack Slim so popular, such as the sleek design, vinyl sleeves, elevated headphone compartments, logo customization, and TSA friendly laptop compartment. But they also add a new flair of style, furthering the JetPack Slim’s unprecedented mix of fashion and function, ensuring there’s a JetPack Slim for everyone’s taste.  Truly expanding on the day bag concept, we’re confident you’ll want to wear this bag for everyday use beyond your DJ gigs. If you wanted a DJ bag that doesn’t necessarily look like a DJ bag, the JetPack Slim is for you.

These new versions also uphold the JetPack Slim’s standard of quality and build, utilizing a heavyweight 900 denier polyester that is both extremely durable and fully water resistant.  Inside you’ll still find the same high quality tear resistant rip stop interior, as well as plenty of padding for stability and protection.

With all three versions, JetPack Slim continues to change the game and break new ground for DJ bags.

To celebrate the launch, Orbit Concepts has decided to temporarily offer a limited supply of the JetPack Slim at a promotional price of $99.99 (regularly priced at $129.99), the JetPack Slim will be available starting September 25th 2018 only at www.orbitconcepts.com.

Orbit has sent some useful product points through as well:

SEIZE THE DAY/OWN THE NIGHT
With the new JetPack Slim, Orbit Concepts is proud to announce that the world’s best DJ backpack finally meets a compact day bag design!  This bold new style is perfect for a DJ’s needs, but is still suitable for everyday use. Trim with a sleek aesthetic, the Slim utilizes JetPack’s core organizational approach, and some of the same features that made previous JetPacks so popular.

TRAVEL TESTED, TSA APPROVED
The Slim is the ultimate DJ travel bag with its TSA Approved laptop compartment. It easily fits underneath a seat or overhead, and is so compact it can be considered a personal item, not a carry-on! The Slim includes a convenient luggage tag, and also features JetPack’s classic trolley sleeve, which work great with luggage, or a dolly/cart.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN A DJ BAG
The Slim’s ambition is to be the most compact bag that’s still meant for all daily essentials. Enjoy familiar JetPack core features such as the elevated headphone compartment, and built-in vinyl sleeves, along with a full complement of functional pockets and pouches. The Slim also features rock solid construction with water resistant material and tear resistant ripstop interior.

The JetPack Slim is the perfect fit for DJs who want a DJ bag without all of the bulk, and a gig bag that they can also use everyday. And with three styles to choose from, the JetPack Slim doesn’t sacrifice fashion for function, it’ll look great for any occasion. Orbit Concepts is excited about this new release, and hopes the JetPack Slim is just the bag many DJs have been looking for.

Orbit has offered to send the grey one through for another review. But I get mails all the time about how there’s a lack of DJ bags with aged leather, rugged canvas, and heavy brass fittings. Honest. Dozens every day. UDG kind of sort of did it with their Carhartt bag. But what I really want is for Saddleback to make a DJ or camera bag. That would be sublime.

Summing up, the Jetpack Slim now comes in grey and camo colour ways, and for a short time you can pick one up for $99.99.
