Trainers,

we’ve recently came across a great Kickstarter campaign ran by Louis Tsai. Louis managed to create, in our humble opinion, the perfect backpack for Pokémon Go players and an amazing backpack overall!

The GO Backpack is “a smart and flexible backpack designed around the everyday workflow of Pokémon trainers” and we tend to agree. Pokémon hunting aside, this backpack has some incredibly good quality of life features!

Here’s a short list of things we really liked:

  • Organizers, lots of organizers and pockets
  • Multiple cable exit spots, making it easy to charge a phone or connect headphones.
  • Laptop padding – something that many backpacks are missing
  • Headset holder and lower back pocket – that’s a lot of utility and smart design!
DISCLAIMER

GO Hub is not paid to review this backpack. We just liked it so much we decided to cover it.

A really great backpack

GO Backpack is a really great backpack, hands down. It’s height is amazing, the amount of storage it boasts is impressive and the amount of attention to details is just insane. It even has side carry handles, for both left and right handed carry.

Insulated, padded pockets, A TON of pockets, zips and ties to organise everything. It has enough space to store your, tablet, notebook, drone, camera and two water bottles. Also, the “big bottom pocket” can hold a pair of running shoes if needed.

This is not a small backpack, but it’s amazing.

Forget Pokémon GO, this is the ultimate best buy backpack you can get for $60! For that price, there is very few comparable backpacks that offer the same amount of storage, utility and features.

The only downside for the backpack it’s not 100% waterproofbut it is weather resistant, meaning it will protect your belongings during rain. However, it will not protect them if you try swimming or diving with it.

    How could we purchase it?

  • Frankie J. Schifano

    Not sure its in production yet.

  • Marco Segura

    Do you know if it will be TSA friendly?

    • HyperShinyGames – Rocket Leagu

      TSA friendly like how? just follow the TSA rules and you should be fine.

    • Scott Gerhardt

      It LOOKS like it would be TSA friendly with the way it zips. It allows the laptop to be flat with nothing on top of it, so I would strongly guess yes.

      • Marco Segura

        Yeah, true that! I though it also had to do with the liner they use for the insulation but just read a bit and it seems it only has to do with that zipper 😀

    this is one of the ugliest bags I’ve come across

    • טך׳ע ז׳בליךך

      yeah this is not a bag for you after all. ^^

      • Alex Domingues

        Well he’s right, it isn’t pretty. It looks very functional but everything from the straps to the logo is very generic.
