This bag contains 4 anti-theft features - Slash-resistant panels, Cut resistant straps, Pick-pocket safe zipper clips, and an RFID blocking pocket.
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away. These tags include the electronic chips on modern day credit cards and passports. These chips contain sensitive and personal data, that can be misused if they fall into the wrong hands.
Absolutely. This backpack has a dedicated pocket that has been lined with a special material that has been designed to block the transmission of signals from your credit cards and passport to identity thieves with scanners. You must put your credit cards and passport in this dedicated pocket to secure your credit cards and passport. On this backpack, the RFID blocking pocket is on the back. It has golden lining.
Locking clips are provided on every bag. You can engage the zipper puller of one or more compartments to the locking clips. This will prevent opportunistic pick pockets from easily getting inside your bag's contents, as it will take them some time to disengage the pullers from the locking clips.
The USB port enables you to charge your devices with your favourite power bank (not supplied). The power bank can be placed inside the backpack with the supplied cable connected to the external USB port from the inside. Then you can plug in your charger cable to the USB port from the outside and charge a device in your hand or pocket. This would usually work best on a phone in a pocket, or a larger device when the backpack is sitting stationary, such as flat on a table.
The cable is designed to allow you to charge your phone or smart device in your pocket from a power bank inside your locked bag. You need to provide your own device and power bank.
This backpack is a great daypack. You can fit a 17" laptop, plus a tablet or iPad, along with your wallet, SLR camera, phone, sunglasses and jumper or light jacket.
Yes, the external side zip pocket can fit standard bottles, it has a zip to allow expansion of the pocket
The outer material of this backpack is made from water-repellent nylon. It is perfect for those occasions when you are caught in an unexpected rain shower. However, if you accidentally dropped your bag in a pool of water, or if the bag gets soaked in a heavy downpour then water could seep through the zippers and the edges of the various compartments.
We suggest you wipe your bag with a damp soft cloth, using warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.
