Cleveland, OH: bolstr, a rising brand in the world of men's small carry bags and accessories, today announced the bolstr Utility Pocket with BA7ANCE™, an alternative way for men to carry their everyday bare essentials. The minimal pouch is made with military-grade nylon, YKK waterproof zippers for durability and security from the elements. Strategically designed, Utility Pocket is a convenient way for men to tote their phone, wallet, Airpods, keys, credit cards, ID, and charging cables, but not much more.

"Guys want better options for carrying their bare everyday essentials without the need for pockets. Something that gives them fast-access and the functionality  to be used in many ways. And it has to make style sense. Our goal was to make something with flexibility, multi-use, and minimal aesthetics that transcends on-trend. We are aiming for future classics. Bolstr Utility Pocket and Small Carry were meticulously designed with all of this in mind. There isn't anything else like them on the market," says Jay Yoo, founder of bolstr.

Bolstr Utility Pocket fills a gap in the bag/accessory market by fitting between a sling pack and a wallet. It is thoughtfully designed with BA7ANCE by not exceeding seven pockets, which makes it easier to find things (humans struggle to remember in sequences past seven).Utility Pocket can be carried crossbody for hands-free use, in-hand for fast grab-and-go, and in-bag for easy access and organization; it fits perfectly in a bolstr Small Carry.

Made in USA, the Spring/Summer 2021 line is being introduced for pre-order (launching 9/29) to the Kickstarter community in four main colorways, Storm Trooper (White), Stealth (Black). Lunar Blue (Navy) and Disruptive Camo (Black and Camo).

bolstr is teaming up with streetwear boutique Xhibition to offer a Dyneema version of the bolstr Utility Pocket dubbed “X-DYM.” “When we were presented with the bolstr Utility Pocket, it caught our attention immediately. We think it is a new category of accessory that will resonate with our customers who will wear it as a fashion statement as much as for utility. And having it made in a material like Dyneema that is stronger than steel adds to the appeal,” commented Robert Rosenthal from Xhibition.   

Bolstr Utility Pocket will be launching on 9/29/2020 along with the third generation of the Bolstr Small Carry (larger than a holster and smaller than a backpack), which raised over $200,000 in previous crowdfunding campaigns. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection, as well as the Xhibition collaboration, can be backed on Kickstarter with estimated delivery in February 2021.
