    Theft-Proof Backpack? I Think this one is great start!

    Need we say it? Earphones & smartphone NOT included.Every year for back-to-school I try to find a unique backpack. This year I found one that not only unique, it's very inexpensive. It's the Poruary Anti-theft Backpack. That's what the hangtap on the bag says. I don't think it's mentioned on Amazon. When I first saw it I thought, “This backpack has no pockets! How do you put stuff in it?” Turns out the main pocket zipper is hidden in the back of this bag, the part that is up against your back. That way there's no way a thief can get to it with you knowing about it. There's a USB Charging port and a headphone port on the outside so you can listen to music or charge a device from within the bag. Easy fits 15.6" laptop and probably some 17” laptops too. More than 10 compartments to keep all your things well organized. Made of durable waterproof and dust proof nylon and oxford fabric. I weighed the backpack empty and it was just about 2 pounds 2 ounces. Best of all, amazing low price. I paid under $20 on Amazon. (No, it does not include the headphones & smartphones.)

    As of 8/13/19 the price was $17.99, but that can change at any time. There was also a 5% off check box there.
