The HC backpack has all the standard compartments, including a padded laptop compartment with hook-and-loop closure, plus mobile phone pocket and zip pocket. But the real selling point is the hood stitched into the top of the pack.
While some laptop bags feature rain covers for the bag itself, the hood in this backpack is designed to help keep you dry. It’s lined for handling the wet, but obviously isn’t going to offer you more than a bit of head protection. The bag itself is waxed to help repel water for a bit of extra protection though.
It’s not available yet, and there’s no word on pricing, but it’s expected to launch later this year.
