SAN DIEGO –Adventure happens everywhere — morning commutes, afternoon hikes, nighttime hijinks. Whatever the action, wherever the destination, no matter the weather, LifeProof keeps you optimized, organized, prepared and your gear protected with the introduction of QUITO, SQUAMISH, GOA and SQUAMISH XL, four water-repellent backpacks designed for an active lifestyle.


“LifeProof created the original Four-Proof phone case,” said LifeProof CEO Jim Parke. “These backpacks bring that legacy of protection to your other gear, so you can take your laptop, tablet, workout gear and just about anything wherever you want to go. LifeProof backpacks combine a water-repellent exterior with a ton of smart storage solutions and ergonomic shoulder straps so you can carry your gear, comfortably, all in one bag.”

For the daily commute or airport hustle, fleece-lined, weather-resistant tech pockets create a safe haven for devices, detachable chest straps keep the pack in place and front tie-downs expand storage for larger items like yoga mats. SQUAMISH, GOA and SQUAMISH XL all have padded laptop sleeves with easy-access side zippers that provide convenience in the airport security line and a discreet side stash pocket for sensitive items like passports and wallets. Vented, custom-foam shoulder straps and back panels deliver comfortable carrying no matter how long the day gets.

Modern, streamlined styling means LifeProof backpacks are at home in the office or on the trails. Each pack can accommodate up to a three-liter hydration reservoir and the water-repellent CORDURAbody fabrickeeps gear dry, even if it’s caught out in the elements.
