Have you ever had something valuable stolen out of a laptop case or backpack? Most people have. Whether it was an ipod, cell phone, or wallet, this type of thing tends to happen to everyone – especially in urban environments and public areas. Fewer people, I’d imagine, would consider arming their backpack with a full-fledged alarm system. That’s exactly the motivation for tech retailer iSafeBags.com, which specializes in protecting your stuff through specialized bags and packs.
The company’s newly launched Urban Crew Campus Laptop Backpack features two 125 decibel sirens and a high-intensity strobe light. An allegedly undetectable activation switch is hidden on the right shoulder strap. More specs from the product page are listed below:

For a visual demonstration, iSafeBags has released a short video that explains the alarm concept. It’s available to view here. For those interested, additional information from the press release is quoted below, as well as a statement from iSafe inventor Edric Sizemore.
For maximum organization, in addition to protection, the Urban Crew Campus Laptop Backpack has seven zippered compartments and side mesh pockets, It also features a padded computer sleeve, with back access to accommodate laptops up to 15.6 inches, audio player pocket and S-shaped Vapel™ mesh Airflow™ padded should straps with suspension system and thumb-ring pulls.

“With bullying and in-school crime on the rise, iSafe Bags recognized the need for a new line of backpacks that will appeal to ages 14 and up, ” said Edric Sizemore, Inventor of iSafe Bags, and President and Co-Founder of parent company, Inventive Concepts International. “Our Urban Crew line offers great style, durability, new functionality, and, most importantly, personal security.”
All iSafe Bags, including the new Urban Crew backpacks, can serve as a necessary safety precaution to students who find themselves in an unwanted situation. Statistics from the Department of Justice state that “most survivors of sexual assaults are full-time students,” and iSafe Bags aims to provide that desired extra level of protection to users.
