Crowd-funded backpack includes battery charger, hidden pockets and a bottle opener



Lifepack is a backpack that does much more than just carry stuff. It includes a Solarbank USB Charger that can charge an Apple iPhone 6 up to 12 times. A built-in lock prevents the bad guys from stealing your pack, and when you want to chill out and listen to some tunes, the Solarbank Charger powers Bluetooth speakers that can be removed from the backpack.

The Lifepack comes with four hidden compartments that allow you to hide your smartphone, credit cards and passport. One hidden compartment includes a USB port. And if you're the type who is always dropping things, don't worry about the sensitive technology you store in your Lifepack. Using air cells, all of your delicate items inside the backpack are protected from drops. Even the elements won't be able to ruin your belongings as the Lifepack is weather resistant.

The product is designed for those who play as hard as they work. One side of the Lifepack is dedicated to holding your work items, while the other half keeps your 'playthings.' And yes, the integrated lock doubles as a bottle opener for those times when a powerful thirst comes over you.

With $686,646 raised, the project is overfunded. That is good news to those who pre-ordered a Lifepack for $169, $80 off the $249 retail price. Shipping is supposed to take place in October.

I could make use of it, but the one I was awarded from my employer has all the pockets and compartments I need for my gadgets (no paper, gone paperless with my Surface Pro + OneNote + MiWand Hand Scanner)...don't see myself purchasing another backpack for a long while.
