The Vibe 28L – Your Go-To Anti-Theft Commuter Backpack

Laptop? Check. Jacket? Check. Fun times ahead? Double check. The Vibe 28L is a carry-on compliant, anti-theft backpack for commuters who not only travel into the city for work, but jet to other locales for business and pleasure. Think of it as a bag that goes from everyday essential to travel companion faster than getting your passport stamped.

For those who think they like the look of this bag, but want to know more about what it does and how it does it, here’s a deeper look at the Vibe 28L Commuter Backpack…

Who’s it for…

The Vibe 28L Commuter Backpack is made for the younger (and younger at heart) professional who wants a streamlined backpack that has a bit of a sporty feel yet still feels at home in the office. If you travel for work or often commute with a bunch of valuable gear on your back, then this bag is for you.

What does it help you do?

The 15’’ compatible laptop sleeve helps you carry your most valuable work device in a padded, secure container that’s comfortable on your back. There are wattle bottle holders on the side to help keep you hydrated on the go, while mesh and zip pocketing on the internal help organize your stationary, cables, passports and other essentials, making them easy to access when needed. The 28-liter capacity also means you can easily fit in a full spare change of clothes and even a few other items.

A sleeve on the back lets you attach the bag to luggage, while an adjustable sternum strap helps spread the weight when fully loaded. One of the coolest features, you won’t find in most other backpacks is that it has internal compression straps that help hold your gear in place like nice travel luggage does. Did we mention it’s carry-on compliant for most airlines too? The only planes that won’t let this little piece of gold on are likely single-prop buzz boxes and remote-control drones.

Anti-theft features

Anti-theft features in the Vibe 28L Commuter Backpack include RFIDsafe™ pockets to shield your passport and credit cards against identity theft, a slide lock to secure your zips to, a front zip clip to deter pickpockets, slashguard panels to combat cut & run theft, plus a loop & lock strap you can use to fix the bag to a table or chair when you need to set it down.

How is it different from other bags?

The Pacsafe anti-theft features make this functional backpack a step above other brands in terms of offering peace of mind for your laptop and other valuables. There’s also the internal compression straps to compact things in and keep them in place. Finally, the shoulder straps tuck away when you want to put on a professional front, carrying the bag like a briefcase using the padded side handle. All in all, it’s crazy versatile and super secure.

What are people saying about it?

Gear Patrol reviewed the Econyl version of the Vibe 28L (whose profits go to support the Pacsafe Turtle Fund). They said about the backpack:

“The Vibe 28 is the perfect size and shape for international travel.”

Customers of the Pacsafe webstore also rank the bag an average of 4.6 out of 5 stars, saying things like:

“Works like a charm” – Bradley B.

“a great size for my daily commute.” – Anne C.
