Griffin Technology has announced two new travel bags that will expand its already existing Survivor line of products, which already includes rugged cases for smartphones, tablets, and the Apple Watch. The two products mark Griffin’s first foray into the travel bag market, although they both display a sense of understand for the needs of frequent fliers. For example, both are designed to be TSA compliant, they can accommodate a 15″ laptop, as well as a full-sized tablet and a smartphone with plenty of room to spare. They also feature an internal shatter-proof shell that provides impact protection to help keep all of those expensive tech items safe while on the go.
The Survivor Backpack has a capacity of 30 liters and includes a total of 16 individual pockets to help keep everything safe and organized. It has organizational compartments to store pens, cables, USB chargers, and important documents. It’s main compartment not only includes a laptop sleeve, but a separate space that is lined in fleece that is specifically meant to hold a tablet, complete with Velcro enclosure to keep everything in place. The pack also comes equipped with a removable toiletries bag, mesh pockets designed to carry battery packs for charging your electronics, and quick access zippered-pockets for holding business cards, pens, or other items you need to keep close at hand.
The second entry in Griffins new line-up is the Survivor Briefcase, which is an over-the-shoulder messenger bag that is considerably smaller than the backpack. It has a capacity of 20 liters and includes 10 pockets for keeping all of your gear well organized. It also has dedicated laptop and tablet sleeves, and a full-size file pocket with a high-contrast ripstop nylon lining that designed to make it easier to find things inside. The briefcase also features a large internal pocket capable of holding a surprising amount of cargo, including file folders, large books, and more.
But what truly separates these bags from the competition is the aforementioned protective plastic shell. Integrated directly into the design of the Survivor bags, this shell is meant to protect the items inside from accidental drops or getting jostled about when going through security at the airport. This clever feature could end up being a life saver for anyone who travel often and needs to keep their electronic devices well protected.
The Survivor Backpack will begin shipping later this month with a price tag of $225.99. It’s counterpart – the Survivor Briefcase – won’t arrive until February and will cost $189.99. Find out more about both products, and the entire line of Griffin gear, at GriffinTechnology.com.
