Virtually theft-proof and capable of charging your gadgets on the go, the Hustle Collection backpack and shoulder bag offer some stylish solutions for carrying your essential belongings around. Solgaard Design, the company behind the Hustle campaign, previously released a backpack called the “Lifepack” on Kickstarter in 2016, raising over half a million dollars and shipping 15,000 bags out to customers around the world. Now, they’re back with a wider variety of upgraded products, and the public couldn’t be more excited about them.
Lifepack HUSTLE provides a great base for people to build their mobile offices around, fitting an impressive amount of objects in its sturdy, compact interior. Plus, each bag has been equipped with the Solarbank 2-in-1: a portable photovoltaic system and power bank that can be charged using the sun’s rays or a micro-USB cable. It’s got 2 USB ports of its own for quick charging, a 10,000 mAh battery that can power up to five smartphones, and fourth generation solar technology that generates enough electricity to juice up your devices after just four hours of exposure to sunlight.
Each Hustle bag also boasts an integrated combination anti-theft lock that fixes it to one spot and prevents it from opening. For extra security, the backpacks have all been outfitted with quick & easy magnetic closure and a double-reinforced hexagon latch, the buckle of can also be used as a bottle opener. Did we mention that all of these features can be utilized with a single hand? Anyone who’s ever tried working at a coffee shop only to worry about leaving their possessions unsupervised when going to the bathroom is sure to appreciate these handy safety additions. The lock’s compressed coil cable can extend up to 39 inches, but that’s as far as any potential thief would ever get with your stuff without having to steal an entire cafe chair or park bench!
Inside the bag, a fleece-lined computer sleeve can safely store any laptop with a display of 15 inches or less. The backpack’s inner lid features a dedicated cable storage compartment and a special pocket for the Solarbank. Each bag has been designed to stand up on its own at all times, even when it’s empty, and you’ll find a USB charging port in one of its air-cushioned straps. If all of that isn’t enough, you’ll be happy to hear that the Lifepack HUSTLE also offers two more hidden pockets, plenty of back padding, and a hip-holster USB port for easy-access charging. The backpack is available in a range of colors, including stealth black, steel, and “vintage” gray with a brown leather finish.
If you’re looking for something with business-casual look, we’d recommend going with the Hustle shoulder bag. These beauties are made from quality vegan leather and posess many of the same features as the backpack. A comfortable luggage strap makes these bags particularly easy to travel with.
The Hustle collection’s Kickstarter campaign just launched, but it’s already surpassed its initial goal of $100,00 by over $60,000! Backing the project now will earn you a nice discount on any one of the company’s individual products.
