This Impressively Tough Backpack Is Waterproof, Inflatable, and Crash-Proof

A video recently shared by Unilad has been making the rounds on the internet lately. The short promotional clip features the Capsula backpack – quite possibly the toughest of its kind in the market right now.

Watching the video definitely made my jaw drop. It’s absolutely unbelievable how tough the bag is!

As you will see when you hit the play button, Capsula’s backpack can be dropped from a second floor window or can be used while swimming – and it will still keep your valuables protected, whether it is a tablet or a glass goblet!

Amazing, right?

Well according to Capsula’s official website, their goal was to “develop an inflatable bag that uses air to offer a completely new backpack experience” and so the backpack is “easily inflatable at any time thanks to the built-in valve system to protect your belongings with air.”

Moreover, Capsula offers you with a lot of room for your valuables because they have “modular cases of different shapes and sizes.” On top of that, the bag adjusts to your needs and adventures because you can either use it as a backpack or as a hand luggage, “thanks to its double handling system.”

It also has anti-theft features that will keep your belongings secure.

The video has since been viewed over 2.5 million times since it was uploaded just last Wednesday, November 30. Unilad called it “hands down the greatest backpack ever made.”

Why Do I Need A Water-Resistant Backpack When I Travel?

Nomadic Matt, a New York Times best-selling author and travel blogger, shared:

“While your pack does not need to be 100% waterproof, make sure your bag is made out of a semi-waterproof material so everything doesn’t get wet in a drizzle (many packs come with tarps you can put over them in case of a severe downpour). Moreover, make sure the material won’t stay wet long and thereby get musty. I look for material that is thick but lightweight. I should be able to pour a cup of water over it without the insides getting wet. I’m not traveling a lot during torrential downpours or monsoons, but I have been caught in small rainstorms before, and because my backpack is made out of a good material, I’ve never opened my bag to find wet clothes.”
