Virtually setting local industry standard from the beginning. This is what ORBIT Modular Gear & Carry Goods envisioned and currently doing. The forward-thinking conception of the founders makes ORBIT revolutionary. It is not just a typical bag producer, ORBIT invents a carry system named atMOS where the technical products are highly configurable and modifiable to suit the wearers’ distinctive needs. This is what they call modular interoperability design, claimed to be the first that is utilized by Indonesian local brand.
The #NEIGHBOURTEAM definitely approves ORBIT since we have experienced the technology and practicality first hand. As they resurfaced in 2017, we had the chance to invite one of the co-founders, Yostria Gintarsa, where he single-handedly demonstrated the feature and it truly works. With uncomplicated webbing and hook and loop, every product from the biggest backpack to the smallest pouch can be assembled and detached conveniently.
We also have been using the products that Yost kindly gave to us. These are the R101F-MAGBK “COMMUTER” and MOD201-SPBK “SLING”, in addition to the MOD301-SPBK “POUCH”. The COMMUTER and SLING suit our needs accordingly. It fits every essential that we need to bring, exactly the main point. Quality-wise, after approximately one year of usage, the bags are able to maintain their shapes with only minimal signs of wear.
However, one important notice about the durability of ORBIT’s products. Please take note to avoid any misconception about the products. All ORBIT products are weatherproof. It is constructed with waterproof fabric, but due to complex production process, the waterproof capability couldn’t be maximized, resulting in the products being weatherproof only.
This condition suggests that an ORBIT bag can stands water splash, drizzle, and medium rain for 5-10 minutes limit until the water starts permeate into the fabric. Nonetheless, for normal daily usage, you can worry less as long as you keep the limitation in mind.
In terms of price, it is ranging from above IDR 100.000 for the most affordable stabilizer strap or pad, up to slightly below IDR 2.000.000 for the COMMUTER backpack. Note, this is special only for Indonesian customers as international customers are charged with higher prices in USD currency.
With growing local and even international recognition in countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Germany, and Canada, ORBIT Gear is worth of the #NEIGHBOURAPPROVED title based on several assessments and we surely expect more great things from them, since they have teased us with apparel experimental project.
Stay tune as more brands will be featured and approved for future #NEIGHBOURAPPROVED spreads. Also, let us know by suggesting which brand that you think worth our approval.
