Targus® Introduces Expandable Travel Backpacks Made from
Recycled Water Bottles to its EcoSmart® Collection

Both backpacks deliver ultimate style, functionality, and device protection for environmentally conscious professionals returning to business travel

Anaheim, CA—October 7, 2021 – Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, has introduced two expandable backpacks to its EcoSmart® collection of sustainable laptop bags. Constructed from recycled water bottles, the Mobile Tech Traveler EcoSmart® Backpacks feature a sleek, expandable design and superior device protection to comfortably carry and organize all workday essentials on the go.

“As our world returns to business travel, Targus is proud to deliver solutions that continually raise the bar on style, functionality, protection, and sustainability,” says Andrew Corkill, Vice President, Global Marketing, Targus. “We are proud to offer products like the Mobile Tech Traveler EcoSmart Backpacks that today’s eco-conscious consumers can feel good about buying.”

The Mobile Tech Traveler collection includes a 15.6” extra-large (XL) backpack and rolling backpack, both expanding from 35L up to 40L capacity to accommodate a modern professional’s everyday work and life essentials. Made from Global Recycled Standard (GRS)-certified recycled materials, plastic bottles were kept out of our waterways and landfills to construct these smart, eco-friendly backpacks.

15.6” Mobile Tech Traveler XL EcoSmart® Backpack (TBB612GL) is made from 37 water bottles, featuring two main compartments, including a dedicated laptop compartment with the SafePort® Sling Protection System to protect a laptop up to 15.6” from damaging drops or bounces. It unzips to lay flat for easy loading and unloading, has top-and-side grab handles, ergonomic shoulder straps, a padded, mesh back for ultimate carrying comfort, and a hidden water bottle pocket for added convenience. MSRP: $129.

15.6” Mobile Tech Traveler EcoSmart® Rolling Backpack (TBR040GL) is a convertible bag with similar features as the XL Backpack, made from 35 water bottles. In addition, it easily transforms from backpack to quiet rolling laptop bag, making it the ideal travel companion for carry-on air travel or overnight trips. Its clamshell design makes it easy to pack and stay organized. It also features top-and-side grab handles and ergonomic shoulder straps for comfortable carrying. MSRP: $149.

Backed by Targus’ Limited Lifetime Warranty, both backpacks are available through authorized resellers and online at targus.com.
