The Best Anti-Theft Backpack Packed With Features
This current run has ended, but there are more recent runs for Bobby Anti-Theft Bag [2nd Run]. Click here to go to the most recent run.
How many times have you heard someone telling their loved ones to, "carry your bag in front of you and don't put your walletr in your back pocket" when overseas? Pretty common, I bet. With the Bobby Backpack, that will no longer be necessary. Stump even the most hardened of pickpockets and give yourself the peace of mind to explore that crowded city.
Every day 400.000 pick pocket incidents occur worldwide. Never worry about this happening to you with the Bobby Anti-Theft backpack. Key features as cut-proof material, hidden zipper closures and secret pockets will keep your belongings safe during your commutes.
Besides being the safest backpack it is also the the most convenient backpack with features such as: an integrated USB charging port, weight balance, water repellent fabric, illuminating safety strips and luggage strap - all to keep you juiced up, on the go.
Choose between getting your Bobby Bagpack in either grey or midnight blue.
Received my Bobby bag yesterday and began using it today. Impressed with the overall quality and build, quite comfortable on the back. It rained this morning and I had my umbrella, but it was good to see/feel the water-repelling quality of the bag. It remained dry and water could simply be flicked off the surface. All in all, I'm quite happy with this group buy - my first!
Hi grouphunters! Just a quick comment since I've been using the bag for about a week or so now (kickstarter backer ^^). the bag is generally quite spacious and fit for everyday use. i carry along a macbook pro, power cord, ipad mini, 600ml water bottle, power bank, everything also bring pouch (the girls will know what i'm talking about) and an umbrella. to be honest, given the weather in singapore, the bag will be able to go a drizzle without getting your things wet inside (i walked through a drizzle recently) and i find it troublesome to use the rain cover (i have one which i don't bring) because i will simply just use my umbrella if the rain gets too heavy.. and a quick caution about the quick access card pockets on the bag strap. be careful of it. i've almost lost my ez-link card twice this week for simply just slotting the card into the quick access. the card tends to slip out halfway of the pocket.. so just be wary of that happening when you start using the bag~ (:
Awesome! Thanks for the real-life review :) I don't have a very clear idea of how much storage this thing can handle though (the 13L metric sounds dubious...), so like, with your normal load, how many books can you fit inside further? Let's say we use a full copy of ST as a measurement for thickness - how many more sets of newspaper can you fit inside?

It will be good if the XD team can provide the raincover for this group hunt.. i meant it's already over 345 orders and I believe we dun mind the wait for this raincover to be included. It will be good for the erratic weather in SG.. put up your best nego skill group hunt team! 😂😂👍🏻👍🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Hey, i see that the Bobby was featured in today's Straits Times (28Sep), and the price is less than $100..
Hey Chyork, yes we were excited to see Bobby featured in the Straits Times, we need more exposure on successful Kickstarter campaigns! Regarding your concern about the pricing, the price published in the paper was the the pre-order (kickstarter) price and also without shipping included.
Kickstarter prices are always the lowest they'll ever be, as the backers are funding the company and for sure prices will always go up once they hit retail. In Singapore, the retail price is $139. Hope this clears things up!
since the number of buyers had passed the 200 total mark, are we still looking at S$109/pc? The "Group Price" gauge is not updated, it still shows "100 orders". Could we get some help to update that?
Thank you in advance.
Hey Ericc! Thanks for checking in - the 100 order tier is actually the minimum order required for the group order to go through, which we've since passed! =)
For this particular hunt for the Bobby Backpack though, there are no further price tiers to be unlocked - we've already tried our best to negotiate for this group price. Hope that helps!
Hi, I notice on indiegogo they are also offering a deep red and full black colour. Would that be available to us too, or only to indiegogo backers?
Could you ask the people at XD Design if we could add a Rain Cover to our purchase. It seems they don't sell it as an individual item. Thanks.
Hi I noticed that the bag has wiring for USB charging. Is that part removable in case I ever need to wash my bag due to accumulated dirt/internal spills?
Hey everyone! We just got an update from XD Design (the good folks behind the Bobby Anti-Theft Backpack). They're keen to work with us on bulk orders which is awesome, but will only be ready to do so towards the end of the year after they fulfill their current crowdfunding orders. So in the meantime you can click request and then rest easy knowing that we'll notify you once we get further updates. Looking forward to this hunt going live again towards the later part of 2016. Cheers!
What does this order come with? Just a bag alone or there are other accessories such as bag cover tsa lock and weighing scale?
Is it confirm that we can receive the bag in November? Can I cancel my order if it is not received after November?
Hey Chin Peng! For this hunt, our expected delivery date is late October. With each hunt we launch, we do our due diligence and coordination with suppliers on behalf of the group, and therefore have strong reason to believe we will fulfill according to our expected delivery date.
As this is a normal Grouphunt (and not a group pledge for a crowdfunding project), delivery is guaranteed - so while you can't cancel your order once the hunt has closed, if you don't receive your product, we won't take your money - that's our promise! =)
Hey there, do you have an estimate on the no. of litres of this backpack? Also, saw some unboxing vids via kickstarter that their purchases come with a raincover, tsa lock and bag weighing scale, is it the same for grouphunt? TIA!
Hey je261, the Bobby backpack will hold 13L. Currently this particular hunt doesn't include any extras, as those extras were stretch goals for the Kickstarter campaign.
