Review and Discussion – Agile Travel Backpack by Agile Travel
Out of thousands of backpack brands, what makes this backpack differ from others? To us, It’s functionality and quality. With over 25 years experience of making backpacks, if Agile don’t give you trust, who can?!
The Agile Backpack is a collection of all great backpack features in one. Here we are going to discuss only the key feature. For instance, it is waterproof, comes with the anti-theft front tab with RFID blocking pocket, USB charging outport, 3 carry handle on top and side (for carry-on mode), strong zipper system, and is expandable for extra spaces (26L to 35L).
For materials used…
It is made of sleek TPU material, which not only gives you a modern and sleek appearance, but also the waterproof properties from rain and drinks spill. The front upper padded pocket is a microfiber pocket. Microfiber is extra fine synthetic fiber that is flexible to use and smooth to touch, just like the cloth for cleaning glasses and camera lens. The straps can be hidden and deploy easily interchangeably from the carry-on to backpack mode.
Safe comes first, you will never want to lose your cards, passport and important item when you are out in the foreign countries. Agile has a hidden pocket that located next to your back, so you will certainly “feel” it when a sneaky theft trying to reach the pocket. Speaking back padding, the EVA moulded padding is ergonomically built to optimize for airflow and hours of comfort.
For tech organizer, it is notably modern and handy for smaller items such as the charging cables and USB. The USB charging implementation is another huge plus for this backpack as most of us will usually run down to a point where to find charging port for the dead battery. Agile makes it easier than ever.
Great portability doesn’t come complicated, Agile has a removable laptop sleeve for laptop and tablet. However, the sleeve is considerably small for only 15″ laptop, it’s a no for those who using 17″ or larger laptop, books, and notes.
Price and Bonus
