Pakt is a new company founded by Malcolm Fontier to create clever, responsibly-sourced products for the modern traveler. Pakt’s initial offering, the Pakt One, is the result of a collaboration with The Minimalists to produce the ultimate bag for the experienced traveler with the help of Sprout Studios and filmmaker Matt D’Avella.

The crowdfunding campaign to fund the Pakt One launches November 7, 2017.

Resurrecting a Great Bag: The Timeline

2012: Malcolm Fontier launched The Getaway, a travel bag that would outperform all others. It was part duffel, part suitcase, all function, all style.

2013-2016: The unique bag earned a cult following worldwide.

2014: The Minimalists released a video called “Pack Like the Minimalists” — which featured The Getaway.

2016: 'Minimalism' was released on Netflix. Always along for the ride (and a ham for the camera), the bag also found its way into that film.

2017: Malcolm and The Minimalists finally heeded the call of the people and conspired to bring The Getaway back. By teaming up they’d make it even better.


To do it right, however, they’d need a few other talented people on the team. That's where Matt D'Avella and Sprout Studios came in.
