This Anti-theft Backpack Has Already Raised Over $700,000 on Kickstarter
It’s secure and stylish.
A sleek, anti-theft backpack with room to comfortably carry all of your belongings is a travel necessity. So it should come as no surprise that this stylish bag featuring multiple security features quickly surpassed its crowdfunding goal on Kickstarter.
The Korin ClickPack X has just about everything you could ask for in a secure travel backpack. Although it boasts a minimalist look, the waterproof knapsack takes a maximalist approach to anti-theft security measures.
More than 80 percent of the bag’s surface is made with cut-resistant glass fibers (just in case), and the top flap opens with a magnetic clasp only to reveal a hidden TSA-approved lock. There’s also a retractable steel wire coil attached to the top of the backpack that allows you to secure the bag to any sturdy object, whether you’re sitting in a chair at the airport or at a table on a bistro patio.
The straps include a genius pocket that doubles as an RFID blocker for storing IDs and credit cards in an accessible yet secure place. On the other strap, you’ll find a USB charging port perfect for powering up handheld devices on the go or even larger items like laptops when you’re taking a break somewhere safe. The port connects to any external battery pack by snaking through the strap to a secure place inside the main compartment of the backpack.
A 180-degree opening with velcro webbing provides upright support, which allows to you neatly organize the backpack. It features pockets specifically designed to store everything from a 15-inch laptop and a water bottle to earphones and other small accessories. Finally, the bag also offers various hidden exterior storage compartments, including a magnetic pocket on the top flap and a zippered pouch on the back of the bag, and it has built-in reflectors to keep you safe at night.
Despite its capacity to carry so much, the anti-theft backpack features a stereoscopic design with lumbar spine protection and padding for a comfortable fit. So if you know you’ll be walking around for long periods of time, you won’t have to worry about back pain during your trip.
The campaign has already well-exceeded its original goal of $20,000. It’s garnered over $700,000 from more than 5,000 backers so far, signaling there’s quite a buzz over the well thought-out product.
