In October, IAMRUNBOX launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the production of their bag range aimed at people with busy lifestyles, designed to keep clothes and business attire crease-free.
After I thought about this problem, six months later the IAMRUNBOX Shirt & Garment Carrier was born..
Comprising of backpacks, garment carriers and shoe bags, IAMRUNBOX has developed a modern but Swedish styled alternative solution to boring gym carriers and formal overnight bags. Founder and avid runner Kirill Noskov left his corporate career to focus on creating time-saving innovative carriers aimed at running and cycling commuters, travellers and business professionals. IAMRUNBOX are carriers that are spacious enough to manage any trouser/shirt, skirt/shirt combination and can hold accessories. Each bag comes with a neat top handle for easy carrying and a sophisticated black with orange colourway.
“As a run commuter, I found it almost impossible to pack my business attire into my backpack without getting shirts wrinkled and trousers creased and after speaking to other members of my local run-commuting community, I soon realised that I was not alone” explained Kirill. “After I thought about this problem, six months later the IAMRUNBOX Shirt & Garment Carrier was born, which had just the right amount of space to keep clothes in pristine condition ready for a day at work”.
IAMRUNBOX bags are made from weather-resistant high quality black nylon fabric with PU coating on the outside, reflective strips for visibility and uses Smart-Load distribution technology. The shoe bag measures 140mm width x 330mm height x 100mm depth, weighs 125g, fits any shoe up to size EU46 and can be attached to the Backpack Pro. The garment carrier measures 265mm width x 380m height x 80mm depth, weighs 425g and can fit into any mid-size backpack, briefcase or large bag. The backpack comes in two versions; The Backpack Lite measures 265mm x 380mm height x 80mm depth, weighs 875g and the Backpack Pro measures 265mm x 380mm height x 105mm depth and weighs 945g.
