Matador X Carryology Collaborate on New EDX™ Lite Backpack

June 13, 2024

BOULDER, Colo. (June 13, 2024) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Matador Travel Equipment, the award-winning producer of high-performing travel equipment, and Carryology, the leading platform dedicated to exploring, inspiring and celebrating the world of carry, introduce the Matador® x Carryology EDX™ Lite Backpack – the next evolution in Matador’s EDC (everyday carry) packable bag series. This very limited EDX Series pack drops on Monday, June 17th at 9am MDT, and is anticipated to quickly sell out.

The Matador x EDX Lite Backpack is a highly innovative 22-liter packable bag designed for travel and everyday carry. Built collaboratively by both design teams, this pack combines Carryology’s expertise in design for daily carry and Matador’s in-house product development knowhow. Crafted with custom, ultra-lightweight materials, the EDX Lite is made to withstand the elements with Matador and Carryology’s HydraGaurd™ weatherproofing technology.

“The EDX Lite Backpack is the latest evolution of our collaboration with Carryology, which quickly sold out last year,” said Chris Clearman, founder and CEO of Matador. “We wanted to build off the massive success of the original series, so our teams developed this pack from the ground up, using ultra-lightweight materials to make this next generation even lighter and more packable. We designed this with comfortable carry in mind for travelers looking for an efficient yet sleek bag they can pack for any adventure.”

Last year, Matador and Carryology introduced the EDX series, a three-piece travel and EDC capsule that redefined the concept of One Bag Travel. The EDX Series included a lightweight sling, small messenger bag, and backpack, each with packable and waterproof features. Now, the EDX Lite maintains the performance-first design ethos and continued focus on durability and storage.

Additional key features include:

  • Water resistant YKK® ®️ sealing zippers on all external pockets + security loops
  • Dedicated laptop sleeve with protective false-bottom and added security slip
  • Expandable magnetic water bottle pockets for a streamlined aesthetic
  • Adjustable and removable sternum strap
