Bobby Review: An Anti-Theft Backpack Perfect for Travel

Meet Bobby, the latest innovative design in anti-theft luggage. This backpack comes with tons of safety features and cool gadgets that make it perfect for students, frequent flyers, bike commuters, and business travelers alike.


Bobby Review

Price and Where to Buy the Bobby: The Bobby is available on FirstShotz by XD Design for $106.

How the Bobby 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 reflectors 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 difficult 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 airport 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 are 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. Wondering why it’s called Bobby? It’s the nickname for the London police force.

Final Verdict:

Whether you’re a student, frequent flyer, bike commuter, or business traveler, the Bobby is a great travel backpack, especially if you are in major cities.
