Kickstart Your Travel Experience With the CORE Gaming Backpack

Mobile Edge has launched its first Kickstarter campaign to help fund the CORE Gaming Backpack, with a schedule to begin shipping product this December. Be a good little boy or girl, and Santa may just have one waiting for you under the Christmas tree this holiday season!

The debut product in a new line of premium gaming gear designed by gamers for gamers, the CORE Gaming Backpack appears to have all the capacity and compartments a traveling gamer could ask for, including three main storage sections, four smaller side pockets, and interior organizers and pouches for laptops, headphones, keyboards, tablets, and other devices. The bag is wired for power banks, and features an external USB 3.0 port for charging in transit.

Opportunities for personalization abound thanks to a Velcro display panel for sticking on patches, in addition to the option to purchase a bag with custom logo and choice of trim color. Obviously the customization is aimed primarily at eSports competitors looking to coordinate team colors and logos for events, though I’ve certainly already imagined getting a bag with the VGBlogger logo and orange trim. That’d look sweet!

Mobile Edge is seeking a minimum funding goal of $30,000–currently the campaign has raised a little over $8,000 with 30 days still to go–with stretch goals starting at $75k for an additional accessories bag, as well as a $150k stretch goal for offering a choice from two of four add-on items, including a hat, t-shirt, device charger, or the accessory bag.

I’ll be getting some hands on time with the CORE Gaming Backpack coming up, so stay tuned for a full product review as the Kickstarter progresses.
