Turtle Beach (makers of high-end gaming audio tech) and EGL (Electronic Gamers League) announced a partnership to build and sell a backpack aimed squarely at gamers who bring their gear on the road. I don’t mean just their laptop and a headset, I mean controllers, headsets, tablets, consoles, water, the works…
It’s called FLYTE, and the duo put out a video showcasing the pack, which you’ll see at the base of this post.
What are the specs of this bag, and how much?
Let’s start with the cost. The bag has an Indiegogo campaign rolling right now. If you back it at $99 before its March 17 closure date, you’ll get the bag at that price. When it hits retail, it’ll sell for $129.95.
Here’s the rundown for what you’ll get if you snag the FLYTE. The Indiegogo link is in the source at the base of this post, below the video.
