Imagine this situation: you’re carelessly going to school, work, heading towards the train, or aimlessly walk through a new city you decided to explore. Your backpack contains everything you need including your phone, wallet, keys, documents… You walk among the crowd and feel nothing suspicious, but next thing you know, your backpack is open, and all the valuable items are gone.
We know how it feels and we know how paranoid we are when comes to carrying a backpack in such situations.
This is why we decided to test and share info about some of the best anti-theft backpacks.
Our detailed guide will help you learn everything you need to know such as their pros, cons, how many secret pockets they have, their price and so on.
Before we offer you reviews for ten excellent and quite affordable backpacks, let’s just check a few of the things that makes them so popular.
An excellent anti-theft backpack has a perfect design, which means there are no extra pockets or zippers in the front, making your backpack an easy target (especially when you are commuting on the train or bus). Every pocket is secretly placed on the inside. Every part of such backpack is perfectly organized so you can neatly put everything you have to carry from books to wallets, computers, tablets, phones, keys, pens and so on.
So many pockets
Just because these anti-theft backpack models don’t have visible outside pockets, it doesn’t mean they don’t have any. Just open any of these models we review, and you’ll realize what we’re talking about.
They have many pockets, and perhaps you might not even use all of them (but it’s better to have more than less, right?). So, all your books, your laptop, phone, food, bottle with water, pens, and pencils even a piece of clothes, can comfortably fit inside without causing chaos. Smart design, right?
We know how horrible it is to carry a heavy backpack that doesn’t have a good design for your back, making your shoulders and spine ache. Our review list contains some excellent designs, made with padded backs and shoulder straps that reduce pressure and don’t cause any friction.
Besides they are practical, they won’t disturb your balance nor will put your spine and shoulders at risk, which can often be the case with backpacks (especially if they’re too heavy).
You must be wondering what we’re talking about, but hey this is the twenty-first century, and a person needs to charge their phone quite often. These backpacks can easily go as stylish laptop backpacks as well, but what makes them practical is that little USB port that allows you to charge your phone or tablet. We are especially fond of this trait.
Undeniably, you’ll feel much safer carrying your things, and we guarantee you that. Based on our tests, we can easily say that these designs are super comfortable, no matter how many items you carry.
Also, the pocket and the inside organization of the back is excellent for everything from books to computers.
These backpacks aren’t overpriced, which is an ideal thing for college students and young people (teenagers especially).
You can always put things in the secret pockets and even charge your gadgets in the built-in USB port.
Although we love the designs and they look super cool for both men and women and can help you carry your things wherever you go, the biggest drawback we found is that some of them lack the USB port and don’t come with a locker.
1. Multifunction USB Charging for men
We tested this model, and we give it thumbs up because it has superb design and can fit a 15.6-inch laptop; it will be safely tucked in and won’t take too much space because it has a special pocket for that.
The back pad is made of elastic material and feels excellent on the back, allowing you to carry heavier stuff (it won’t rip off). It has great dimensions (42x32x10 cm) and has enough pockets for everything. It also includes a USB port.
This is one of the best anti-theft backpacks that can efficiently serve as a computer bag, and we give it the title the best laptop backpack for traveling
