What might seem to be an unlikely partnership at first turned out to be a versatile and unique fashion line. Nike and Tom Sachs presented NIKECraft, a collection inspired by space and astronauts that includes a noteworthy lightweight tote (which has already sold out).

Nike and Sachs turned to Marco Murillo of The Good Flock to come up with a design that will go hand-in-hand with the previously launched Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers. Just like the footwear, the vision for the bag was to create something that could withstand the atmosphere in space.

After consulting with NASA scientists, Nike, Sachs and Murillo used the fabric dyneema for the tote, which is said to have five times more tensile strength compared to steel. Plus, the material can float in water. The bag is also made up of materials used in boat mainsails, car air bags and space suits.

The lightweight tote is just as versatile as it is unique. It can be worn three ways: as a tote bag, backpack or waist pack. The bag also comes with a paracord, storage containers and a periodic table of elements.
