The Booq Pack Pro: Ready for All of Your Gear!

We wrote about the Booq Cobra Pack two years ago; that backpack turned out to be so popular that Booq has updated it with even more options and refinements.


Because the original Cobra pack was a favorite among Booq fans, we wanted to evolve the design to include several key upgrades such as a larger, industrial plastic coil zipper, interior mesh pockets for added storage options, simplified straps for easy carrying and a redesigned front panel to better hold the pack’s shape and give a boxier, rigid look,” said Kema Subsomboon, Lead Product Designer at booq. “The result is a more refined Pack Pro that gives Booq fans, who often travel for business, a comfortable solution for carrying their gear while maintaining the features they loved from the original Cobra pack.

The Pack Pro has a “1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior with water-repellent coating and YKK high-performance zippers”, and the backpack “features a lightweight, rigid frame and a highly protective laptop compartment with a water-resistant zipper to keep a 16.4-inch laptop safe while traveling.” There are “two zippered, mesh side pockets provide quick access to a water bottle or umbrella, while a hidden back pocket keeps an iPad, passport, tickets, and important items secure. Keeping comfort equivalent to convenience, the Pack Pro also offers breathable back padding and a comfortable, ergonomically designed shoulder strap, making it the ideal backpack to move your gear.”

The Pack Pro comes with a 5-year warranty and Booq’s Terralinq service which helps owners recover their lost bags — assuming the person who finds it is honest, of course. You can pick one up for $295 from
