GIG PACK or Scooter Packpack by Brazilian Designer Gustavo Brenck.
Seems like it’s a concept design and not currently manufactured for commercial retail. Found this at the coroflot.com site: “The Gig Pack needs a producer. Contact him at email@example.com”.
Floh: Sounds like “Flow” as in Go With the “Flow”. They started off as a kickstarter project around 2012 and 2013 with prototypes of a kickscooter and backpack hybrid. It’s now developed into more of a slim luggage/canvas briefcase/messenger slingbag + kick scooter combination. They are now in the midst of prepping to sell their products on their official website. And have appeared on a trade show at GadgetShowLive 2015:
