A smart backpack is designed for the technologically savvy traveler or commuter. Besides housing convenient compartments for various electronic devices, they include the ability to charge devices on the go with room for a battery pack and a USB port that can connect to the pack. Smart backpack sizes are designed to fit 13”, 15”, and 17" laptops. They generally have separate pockets for smartphones and tablets. Most come with comfort-adding features like padded shoulder straps and a padded back. Most have elegant designs and conservative colors. Some smart backpacks have anti-theft features like hidden pockets, zippers that can be locked, and anti-RFID (radio frequency identity) technology. Some are water-resistant and tear-resistant for long-distance travel or hiking.
