The Auklet Story

We put years into them, so you can put miles on them.

Before we made Auklet bags for others, we made them for ourselves. Born out of necessity during weeks of hiking, months of backpacking, years of travel. And in the same way that travel changes you, it shaped us. Auklet bags are the result of countless adventures, more than 3 years of engineering and reengineering, over 100 different test fabrics, and a quick stop in Switzerland to get certified by Sanitize. The result? Antimicrobial bags made from environmentally-friendly TPU that protects your clothes from odor, mold, and bacteria. Auklet bags are both gym-friendly and travel-necessity. The journey was worth it.

More than a name. The Auklet (or Crested Auklet) is a nimble and stylish bird, capable of flying effortlessly through the air, and diving deep below the surface of the ocean in underwater flight. Interestingly enough, the Auklet also emits a pleasant citrus-y odor. Just like our namesake, Auklet bags thrive in the most extreme climates. The road ahead. What started out of necessity is now a passion all of its own. We’re dedicated to making the freshest, highest quality gym and travel hampers out there. If you want to know more about us, our process, have any questions for us, or just want to let us know where your travels are taking you next, please feel free to reach out. We’d love to hear from you.
