I had the final shove to design Lifepack once my girlfriend’s backpack was stolen at a cafe while abroad. I knew Lifepack needed all the bells and whistles while offering safety features and style.

Lifepack, which has been dubbed “MacGyver’s backpack” and “the briefcase for millennials,” has officially raised over $522K with two days left on Kickstarter. The high-tech backpack, which features a solar powered USB charger, Bluetooth speakers, integrated lock and an organized storage system, aims to reinvent the mobile office for consumers and travelers all around the world.

“I’ve always imagined how awesome it would be to have a multi-functional backpack that could be used for anyone’s individual needs,” said Lifepack founder Adrian Solgaard. “I had the final shove to design Lifepack once my girlfriend’s backpack was stolen at a cafe while abroad. I knew Lifepack needed all the bells and whistles while offering safety features and style.”

Lifepack is the ideal mobile office offering security, functionality and practicality. The backpack is perfect for commuters and travelers. The weather-resistant bag has an organized and drop-resistant storage system, four hidden pockets, and RFID-blocking passport and wallet pockets. Lifepack's Solarbank is a USB charger capable of charging an iPhone 6 up to 12 times as well as the accompanying Bluetooth speaker. Finally, Lifepack features an integrated lock for the zippers which pulls out like a bike lock and can wrap around a table or chair.

Lifepack is also TSA-approved, meaning consumers can bring the all-in-one backpack as a carry-on. Its features offer solutions to a variety of needs for those who are always on the go and need an extra hand (or charge). Now commuters can organize and protect their most important documents whether working at their local coffee shop or heading on a business trip. Travelers can condense their belongings and always have backup power for their phone. Even students can use Lifepack to balance life and work together in one bag.

Lifepack has surpassed its funding goal by 2,610% thanks to over 3,200 backers. The backpack’s campaign wraps up on Thursday, April 28. Backers can purchase their own Lifepack starting at $149, which is $100 off the future retail price. Lifepack is also offering special student deals for those who have a valid high school, college or university ID.
