How it Rates:


Usefulness: 9/10. If you're in the market for a new travel backpack, this one has all the tricks and gadgets. I love the integrated USB charging port ( although I had to lookup how to use it ) and anti-theft design. The anti-cut fabric is a great feature, and for those who bike a lot, the re-flectors on the backpack are the perfect night safety addition. I loved the transit-card pocket on the strap and its weight distribution. 

While there are two pockets for a laptop and tablet, as well as a hidden back pocket, it was diff-icult for me to fit everything in the bag that I normally would take in a carry-on bag. However, it is a great size for commuting and for weekend trips.

Value: 9/10. The price is a little more expensive than a normal travel backpack, but with all of its unique features, it's fair.

Portability: 10/10. The bag is super lightweight and you can really feel the difference compared to other bags. The added strap to secure it over a suitcase handle is another great addition for a-irport travel.

Durability: 10/10. The anti-cut fabric is well made. It's water repellent and has YKK zippers. It's anti-shock, so if you drop the bag or it's poorly handled by security, you know your electronics a-re safe.

Cool Factor: 10/10. The minimalist design is stylish, and I haven't seen anyone else with a similar style backpack yet. You don't have to worry about pickpockets while traveling. Wond-ering why it's called Bobby? It's the nickname for the London police force.
