Bobby, The best Anti-Theft Backpack!

Every day 400.000 pick pocket incidents occur worldwide. Never worry about this happening to you with the Bobby Anti-Theft backpack. Key features as cut-proof material, hidden zipper closures and secret pockets will keep your belongings safe during your commutes.

Besides being the safest backpack it is also the the most convenient backpack with features such as: an integrated USB charging port, weight balance, water repellent fabric, illuminating safety strips and luggage strap.

5 Stretch goals REACHED!! These stretch goals will be added to all backpacks free of charge (so when 2 backpacks, 2 times all these stretch goals) and extra colors are available to choose from in the survey.

 

We added 2 extra colors to this project, so in total you can now choose from 4 colors:

Grey:

 

 Dark Blue:

 

 All Black:

 

 Red:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Camera bag

We have seen that many of our backers are also photographers, and we get a lot of questions if your DSLR will fit into the Bobby, the answer is YES! 

The body will fit without problems in the big compartment, and your lens easily fits in the smaller compartment. But there is also plenty of space in the overall compartment to put your camera, with or without camera protection around it.

 

 Suitable for School/College?

Is the Bobby suitable for school or college? The answer is again YES! When already having your laptop and tablet in the backpack, you still have plenty of room for many books of different sizes and formats. We have tested this with different formats and sizes of books:

 

 

 

Reflective stripes

We received many questions regarding the safety strip on both bags, and if the safety strip of the Blue Bobby is just as efficient as the one on the grey version.

Below you can see the difference between the reflective strip on both colors. The Grey version has a bit stronger reflections however as you can see the dark blue one is also reflecting strong enough to keep you safe at night.

 Extra images of the Blue version

Please find below some more images of the Midnight blue version of the backpack

 

 

 

 

 

LIMITED EDITION

Risks and challenges

We spend months preparing the set-up for this backpack, and have full functioning samples of the Backpacks.

We are in close contact with the factory and they are well prepared for the production when the project is fully funded.

Also our QA team is in place to personally check every shipment that will go out to make sure all backers receive the product without any defaults.

The challenge therefore will not be the production side, but mostly the fulfillment side. We now have a good margin in our delivery times, and hope to deliver all the backpacks even before the deadline mentioned on this page.

After our last Kickstarter project we have changed our fulfillment process to better fit to the needs of a Kickstarter project like this, so we feel that we also have this part tackled.

We also learned from our previous Kickstarter project that the amount of messages and requests that we will receive can be overwhelming. This is unfortunately also the reason why during our last project it took too long to respond to all our backers.

For this project we put a special team in place that is solely focussed on answering any questions you might have for us, and we will make sure to respond to all messages within 24 hours.

So off course there will be challenges, but we believe we learned a lot from our last campaign, and that we should be able to prevent these problems from happening this time.

In short -- Nothing to worry about!
