To celebrate the release of the new Polygon Sunfire laptop bags the gang at Altego, with the help from a few gracious aerospace engineering students at Texas A&M, launched them into near space.


Launching from the College Station, Texas area, each bag was sent into near space on an individual rig that was specifically made for this project by Texas A&M HABC. Over 300 cubic feet of helium was used to fill the massive weather balloons which were used to get the rig and bag into the atmosphere. It took the bags two and a half hours to reach over 96,000 feet and only 20 minutes to fall back to Earth. The recoveries of the bags lasted over 4 hours but were fully in tact when found. "Not only were we able to announce the launch of our new bag line in an unusual way, we were able to help students at Texas A&M create a satellite altitude tracking system", said Drew Bowers, Director of Marketing.

It's the little perks that make life a little brighter. The Polygon Sunfire Series was ignited to fulfill that burning desire to seize the day. Clean angular lines give an aggressive look to this series; that should trigger some endorphins, right!?!
Plus we figured killer technology doesn't have to be reserved for digital gadgets; so, we added new Fidlock style buckles that slide open and snap closed with powerful magnetic strength.
