Is this the safest backpack? [video]


"Should I padlock my backpack?"

"Are all backpacks unsafe?" 

On holiday, or on our commute to work, we travel through busy cities. We carry valuable devices and even more valuable data, passports, wallets and keys. 

A regular lone traveller, I wanted to travel carefree without frequently checking my belongings were still there. 2 years ago, I realised urban backpacks and rucksacks are the wrong way round so I built a new one.

Turning the backpack around removes all outer zips. Instead, they are naturally protected by your back. Introducing the RiutBag. Riut, pronounced "riot", stands for Revolution in user thinking. It's designed to give you peace of mind in the busiest urban spaces.

RiutBag is now available to order, shipping globally. It only exists because rucksack users built it, funded it and use it. Learn more about the RiutBag's story here:
