Just goes to show that any "improvement" on an existing object is patentable. The Figure 6 sloped profile makes me think it is designed to fit in a very specific space.

ICE only :(
Have they filed an application or received an actual patent?

Receiving a patent doesn't guarantee enforceability.

It's an issued patent. Not sure what's going on - I uploaded images of the patent but they are not showing. Tried again, still not showing...?

There's also one for a hairdryer attachment to the HVAC system. With some people complaining about poor heat, this one seems marginal. It even contains a cop/paste error from the bed cover patent, lol.

This looks exactly how their bag is built presently. I have it and it fits the unique shape of the gear tunnel perfectly.
Ahhh, got it. As an R1S owner, I didn't know about this.

Can you post?
Sure. This is their prototype one they were bringing out early on, it's not what they had planned to produce. Actually looks like drawings for both are in this patent. Odd.

Ahh, gotcha. Such a cool accessory that I really hope they still bring to market in whatever form it takes.

Rivian's move to patent a duffel bag design is pretty cool. It shows they're not just about cars but also creating products that fit perfectly with their vehicles, like a bag designed for the gear tunnel. This could make owning a Rivian even more special, offering unique accessories that match their trucks. It's interesting to see a car brand dive into lifestyle products. I think it's a smart way to build up their brand and offer something extra to their customers.
Man they should come out with a Kitchen for that space.
