If you travel a lot it’s often times the little things that mean the most. And one simple feature of the new Targus Mobile VIP Backpack delivers a singular satisfying benefit; it stands on its own – literally. This pack’s layered design and structural piping keep the bag upright wherever you set it down. A small improvement for sure, but one you will appreciate immensely the next time you squeeze into the last seat in a crowded airline terminal.
Perhaps that’s all it needed to gain the affections of the CES Innovation Award judges, because they recently announced the Mobile ViP Backpack was named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Computer Accessories category. The award-winning backpack will be displayed at the CES Innovation Awards Showcase, which runs January 5 to 8, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The bag does other things well too. The Targus people have been making laptop cases for more than 30 years, so they have learned a few things along the way. Including how to prevent laptop damage with its SafePort Sling that suspends your laptop in a cradle in case the bag is dropped.
On their site the company lists other features as well, “With a tablet compartment, convertible file organizer, and zippered side pocket, the Mobile ViP Backpack is incredibly organized, so that finding your pens, phone, and more is quick and easy.”
The pack also offers a patented TSA checkpoint-friendly design, a trolley strap, a file compartment with convertible floor, a weather-resistant base, a water bottle pocket that lies flush against the bag when it’s not in use, a sternum strap and a soft-lined front stash pocket for glasses.
It will hold a laptop up to 16″ along with a table up to 12″. And you can buy it in any color as long as that color is black.
