How do I recognize a real Bobby backpack online? Red flag 1: Name The anti-theft backpacks by XD Design are named after the iconic itish Policemen. Therefore, there are no others or sisters on the market named Anthony, Smarty, Bibbi, Sisi or even Bonny. Red flag 2: USB-port The USB port of the original Bobby is hidden between your hip and the bag and herewith not visible while wearing the bag. The difference with the fake-Bobby's is that they have the USB port located on the outside of the bag. Red flag 3: Colors XD Design selected the colours for the Bobby based on color trends. The bags are therefore only available in specific colors. The Bobby Bizz is only available in black. The Bobby Compact is available in five vibrant colors; primrose yellow, diver blue, coralette, pastel blue, and mint green. For the promotional market the Bobby Original is available in two colors; all black and grey. There is also a red Bobby Original, but it is only available for the retail market. In addition, there are two limited editions of the Bobby Original; the DJ Ti «sto edition and the midnight blue version. The Midnight blue is no longer available; the DJ Ti «sto edition is exclusive for the retail market. Any other color used on the Bobby backpack indicates that it is not an original XD Design product. Any other color used on the Bobby backpack indicates that it is not an original XD Design product. Red flag 4: Pricing If the price is too good to be true, it probably is! We aim to keep the pricing equal worldwide. A reseller might offer a special discount during a Holiday but please do bear in mind that his discount must be reasonable. If the seller is offering a 50% discount, it is not an official bag. Red flag 5: Quality of photos The photos used by our resellers and ourselves are always from high quality. Our resellers will have access to our copyrighted photo database. Unofficial resellers or fake resellers often use photos of very low quality, or cropped photos to cut off our and name. In additions, those resellers often have one or two photos on their page with their own real bag where the outside USB port will show again. Please make sure you scroll through all their photos to not miss it! Red flag 6: Fortune wheel No, it is not your lucky day as soon as this banner pops up on the left side of your screen. Please leave this page immediately if you intend to buy an original Bobby backpack by XD Design because those fortune wheels are only promoted on a fake reseller's website. Red flag 7: Quality Whereas the Bobby backpack is firm and holds its form, the copies of the Bobby backpack are from very poor quality. The bags look and feel saggy thus won't hold their form and are neither anti-theft nor cut-proof. Product Features: Brand: XD Design Model Number: BGXD602 Color: Blue Material: Polyester Pattern: Solid Type: Laptop Bags Product Size: 45 x 30 x 16 cm Details: Cut, slash, water and stain proof. USB external charging. Hidden zipper closures. Reflective for night security. Quick access pockets

The reason why I am giving only two stars is because it has already broken on me, the USB cable that goes in the battery pack became loose so I can't really use it, only after 2 weeks of use. I have posted a question about support without response from the company.
The other reason why I give it two stars, which I think is more important, is because of the poor airflow in the back. Due to the design and the material, the cushion that touches the back causes the back to sweat a lot, and I mean A LOT. Causing for any person to be uncomfortable while wearing it. Needless to say I won't be using this back pack on a daily basis since it is not something that can be ignored. So of you walk at least 10 minutes with it you are likely to get sweat on mild weather.
The bag itself is amazing. Super cute and sleek. My friends and I keep commenting about how smooth that pink part is (so soothing to stroke it hahaha).
The bag comes exactly as advertised, and comes with a mini tote bag as well. I haven't had a chance to try the luggage strap part since I don't think it will work well with my luggage.
I thought I'd get more use out of the battery USB link, but I found it inconvenient for me while I was travelling, only because I don't have a long enough USB for my phone for it to be stowed nicely. Also once it's done charging, I don't like to have my battery pack left on (but this is not a fault on the bag, but more for me as a user).
The cover seen in the pics is actually stowed/attached to the bottom of the bag.
My favourite parts about the bag is really the easy access pockets on the outside.
The two on the sides and the one on the lower back is really great!
I didn't use the ones on the straps since they were a tad small for my purposes (I like to use a card protector on my transit cards so it won't fit).
The reason why I loved the outer pockets is because the actual big zipper is a bit "tricky" to get into if you're in a rush.
I know, it's an anti-theft bag, so obviously it's not supposed to be easy. Honestly I do wish I didn't have to set my bag down every time to guide the zippers though. VERY minor fault that could be annoying to some.
Also, another minor fault is that the bag honestly can't fit that much. It's great if you're not carrying a lot, which I was fine with. If you're expecting to use this as your only travel "luggage" while traveling abroad, it is definitely not big enough.
For people who like compartments, this is not for you lol
I personally didn't mind, since a lot of regular backpacks don't have too many on the inside anyways.
I just really utilized the outer pockets.
My friend didn't get this bag while I made the purchase because she was concerned it might look to bulky in the back, so I've attached a picture of me with the pack. I didn't think it was too bulky at all.
Overall, I really like this bag and highly recommend it!
-Awesome sleek look
-Pretty light weight
-THE OUTER POCKETS that are easily accessible AND pretty steal-proof
-Lots of extras (USB battery cord, mini tote, attached bag cover)
-Main compartment can be a little easier to get into
-Not too much space inside
-(Potentially) Not enough compartments for some
-No water bottle holder
Then I found the Bobby Backpack.
I have had this bag for near a year, and I am still reaching for this bag as my go-to. The thing still looks brand new after a quick cleaning with a damp cloth.
I resisted this bag because of the price tag, but I am glad I finally convinced myself to spend a little bit extra. The Bobby Backpack is a perfect storm of fashion, security, and function. It is fashionable. Cute, sleek, and modern. It is secure, in a functional way. No padlocks, exposed clips, or other annoying security measures that ruin the ease and function of the bag. You can use the Bobby just like any other backpack, the zippers are just hidden close to your body. You will use every special function offered. The exterior pockets are my favorite, and the rain cover saved me more than once.
The only con I can think of is that the water bottle holder is on the inside. But I understand why they did that. The exterior looks very sleek right now, and an exterior sleeve would alter the aesthetics.
Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this backpack. The Bobby Compact Backpack is the perfect storm of day packs, combining fashion, security, and function. Get it. You won't regret the price after using it constantly.
I have included a tape measure in my pics to help you gauge the exact sizing of the bag.
I chose the mint green because it's my second favourite colour (after lilac.) It really blends well with the grey on the bag.
Do go for something darker if you live in a dusty environment like I do. And if your daily commute is anything like mine, you will quickly notice the dirt on the bag. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth will fix this though.
It is an overall aesthetic bag. I must add that the mint green part has such a lovely texture, I kept reaching for the bag to run my hand over it. It does scuff rather easily, be warned.
The bag is superbly comfortable. I immediately noticed how much lighter all my stuff felt when I moved it into my Bobby. The shoulder straps are adjustable and padded, and there is a little elastic band on either side of the straps to hold the rolled up length of the strap.The back panel has a foam layer with a mesh covering for ventilation. I was outdoors in the sun for an afternoon and didn't get a sweaty back.
The ergonomic design does not lie! It also holds its shape rather well but you have to be careful not to smoosh the bag unnecessarily.
I love the fact that it opens flat, which makes for easy organising.
I will come back and edit the review after a few months of use to see how it holds up.
