Feature

If you are looking for a new bag to bring all your supplies to work, KeySmart has a commuter backpack that ups the ante for commuting in style.

The Urban21 Commuter Backpack by KeySmart is sleek, professional and has a number of innovative features designed to help commuters travel efficiently and safely.

To start, the snag-resistant gray fabric makes sure it will not unravel at the first sign of a pull. The bag’s space is distributed evenly from top to bottom.

The top of the bag features a hard shell with its own zipper pocket for safe, easy access to smaller items, like glasses and phones. So far, it has been sturdy in keeping my own sunglasses and other delicate items protected.

The inside of the bag features a padded laptop section for laptops up to 15 inches, RFID-blocking pockets, a pouch to place KeySmart trackers in case of theft, and even more pockets and spaces. The whole bag is waterproof.

On the outside of the bag, a foam, sweat-reducing back pad keeps wearers comfortable; it can be easily carried by a top handle. The bag also features a few “secret” pockets, so curious snoops might not be able to find everything.

The bag is resilient, stylish, versatile and comfortable. The Urban21 Commuter Backpack is available from KeySmart starting at $239.99.
