Our Technical Backpack is an engineering marvel. You can fit soooo much stuff in here! But it's how the bag is designed that makes the difference. Lets start with the heavy-duty, water-resistant shell featuring genuine Cordura® ballistic nylon. We also incorporated our antimicrobial technology right into the fabric which resists and repels up to 99% of harmful bacteria, mold, and fungus. How awesome is that to help with your travel hygiene!
The magnetic secured laptop compartment allows for one hand removal and stow - no more need for that third hand! The pocket is lined in plush faux fur, padded with EVA foam and holds up to a 16" laptop. All the inside pockets and organizers are sized specifically to fit hard drives, power packs, etc.
And speaking of power, we have incorporated our wireless charger pocket right onto the top of the bag. This pocket is perfectly sized to fit our HEX wireless power bank (sold separately) and allows for quick, easy on-the-go charging without having to deal with those unsanitary public charging stations. Of course the pocket can also be used with other chargers as well.
We also used the new YKK EYL woven "tough zippers" for maximum durability. Plus these zippers use substantially less water in their dying process so they are good for the environment too - win/win!
The interior divider allows you more space for a tablet while still keeping the roomy main compartment free for all your daily needs. There is a hideaway rainfly, an exterior utility strap, luggage handle pass through for travel on a roller suitcase, a lay-flat water bottle holder, and a combo passport/phone pocket. Add that to the 2 front pockets with nice hidden magnetic closures and a molded EVA foam back panel and you have one serious backpack.

Here's some "scienc-y" info for those of you who just gotta know more about our antimicrobial technology ;)
While the term “antibacterial” may be more well known, antimicrobials take germ protection a step further in that they are also effective against molds, and fungi.
Our antimicrobial technology targets harmful microbes by altering their ability to convert nutrients into energy, inhibiting microbial survival and reproduction. We use a zinc pyrithione process delivered in a liquid dispersion form that incorporates the solution directly within the textile fibers. Our treatment is registered with the EPA and FDA as well as notified with the EU BPR and is BluesIgn® and Okeo-Tex certified.
Our fabrics were laboratory tested* using antimicrobial test methods ATCC 100 & ATCC 30 and compared against a control sample. No product can claim 100% elimination or guarantee effectiveness against all kinds of microorganisms and pathogens. However, these tests showed our fabric to repel and resist up to 99% of bacteria, mold, and fungus. This means that whatever your bag comes in contact with, the bag itself is working to eliminate harmful germs and bacteria. We call this process “active hygienics” and it means that any transmission of microorganisms to or from your bag will be diminished.
We are pleased to bring this technology to market in response to the need for heightened hygiene practices and to provide our customers the best product experience possible.
Regarding COVID-19: Most antimicrobial processes (including ours) have not yet been specifically tested on COVID-19. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) recommend the use of antibacterial and antimicrobial products as part of a generalized preventative routine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
