Top 5 Smart Backpacks of June, 2019 – We Review The Best High-Tech Backpacks for Work, School & Travel

Enter the Age of Smart Backpacks – We Try Out The Top 5 Best Sellers

A backpack that charges your devices, plays your favorite music, and can make you look fashion-forward in the process?

The great tech boom has seen laptop backpacks evolve in the past ten years. Now, these next generation backpacks can charge your phone, locate themselves, and, like all backpacks, be tough enough to withstand being  kicked around.

If you’re a commuter,someone who travels for work a lot, or a student looking for college backpacks, you’ll want to use your backpack for at least the next 2 to 5 years. Every day. Some of us expect to get a good 10 years out of our backpacks so it makes sense to get the right one to start with.

What to look for in a smart backpack

  • Any smart backpack you choose has to have enough space, so a compartment specifically for your laptop or tablet is a must. Think about what other items you’ll need to have room for, too – water bottle, phone, wallet and so on.
  • Having anti-theft features are a great idea that many smart backpacks include as standard.
  • The material has to be durable, preferably waterproof, or at least water resistant, and reinforced at the corners, base and other crucial wear points.
  • Smart features should include a battery pack with enough power to fully charge your devices. Some backpacks need to be plugged in, whilst other are solar powered – great for a weekend’s camping.
  • You need to check whether a power bank is included.

Most manufacturers recognize the need for smart backpacks to, not only perform well, but look super stylish, too, and are catering for more tastes within their product range.

So let’s explore the Top 5 Smart Backpacks of June, 2019:

 

1) Smart Travel Backpack by Matein

Overview

Our immediate observations on this smart bag is how well made it is and how hard wearing it feels. We love the clean grey color, minimalist style and the fact it has a huge number of handy pockets.

What We Like

The designer of this backpack has thought of everything – if you need to carry pens, a water bottle, your passport, wallet, or school books, along with your laptop, there’s a pocket just waiting for it. For the vertically challenged amongst us, this backpack is easy to adjust and will still sit comfortably on your body without causing aches and pains.

The smart features include a built in USB charger outside and built in charging cable inside, which we found great for powering up on the move.

What Needs Improving

Although it supports portable charging, this backpack doesn’t power itself, so this might be an extra addition you have to figure in.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is an exceptional, high quality backpack with superior smart features. Highly recommended.

2) Smart Travel Backpack by AMBOR

Overview

We love the design of this – it looks classy, neat and hard wearing, and with the included combination lock, very secure. On first examination, you’d never guess that it’s packed to the rim with technical prowess.

What We Like

This is a really smart “smart” backpack (if you see what we mean). It’s very comfortable, has pockets for everything, and has plenty of room. The design is quite simple, which works very well with this classic, water repellent fabric.

We tried our hardest to ‘break in’, but the anti-theft features flawed us easily. Overall we really like this bag, the fact that it charges our phones, super fast, is an added bonus!

What Needs Improving

The shoulder straps could do with being a little shorter to make carrying easier; they are a bit tricky to adjust to the right position for someone shorter or younger kids.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

A really good, secure backpack, perfect for school, college and work, with great smart features and a well considered design.

3) Modoker Vintage USB Backpack

Overview

This smart looking, satchel design backpack is well made from durable fabric, has lots of useful features and is plenty big enough for laptops, books and other things you may want to pop in.

What We Like

We love the super chic retro look of this smart backpack. It’s scratch, water and scuff resistant – so you can relax knowing it’ll look great whatever. Even with a heavy load, and believe us, this has plenty of internal room, and useful pockets, it’s comfortable across the shoulders, thanks to the well placed padding.

The USB port is conveniently accessible for easy, efficient charging while you walk along.

What Needs Improving

Although the side pockets are a good size, being elasticated would make them even more useful. But hey, we can easily live with this.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a really useful, good looking, well designed backpack. Stylish, with plenty of pockets and internal compartments, it’s easy to recommend this.

4) Smart Business Backpack by SwissDigital

Overview

This smart and streamlined extra large backpack is perfect for any business. The outer material is deceptively hard wearing and can easily withstand the rigors of commuting, or college, but it’s specifically designed for air travel.

What We Like

This smart backpack is full of compartments so you can easily organize all of your gadgets, notes, books and other accessories. It’s fitted with charging ports (USB) for keeping your smartphone and tablet full of juice on the go. Other perks include an RFID protection pocket that prevents identity theft and a 3D ventilation system for comfort. This is truly a backpack fit for our modern lives.

What Needs Improving

We only wish that this smart backpack came in more colors as the ultra cool design deserves to be seen in other hues.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

A stylish backpack that would suit business, college or travel. It's spacious, well thought out and comes with superb anti-theft and air flow properties. This is defintely on our gift list.

5) Smart Backpack by Korin Design

Overview

The smart backpack from Korin Design is one of the most interesting looking bags we tested. We love the futuristic design, and the unique weight reducing  strap system.

What We Like

One of the biggest selling points of the Korin is that it looks ultra cool. But to say that this smart backpack can’t live up to its aesthetics would be an understatement. First off, it uses a ClickPack ergonomic design that ensures this backpack fits you perfectly with minimum adjustment required. It has a weight reduction system, which means that no matter how heavy your backpack is, the weight will be evenly distributed across your back. There is a triple anti-theft mechanism, right down to the slash-resistant fabric. Storage-wise you get 5 x large compartments to organize your belongings.

Smart wise, the Korin charges quickly and unobtusively – no one would know you have smart devices stashed away inside. This ticks our boxes.

What Needs Improving

Whilst Korin have given this a larger price tag, we feel it’s worth the extra for all the proffered features

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This backpack is at the luxury end of the market, but it's well worth it. It looks, feels and is high quality, and you'll never have to worry about your valuables being unsecure.
