Every once in a while we’ll receive a product that blows us away — it has to be impeccably designed, innovative, and functional. The Redland Jonah backpack is firmly entrenched at the nexus of those three criteria. I don’t usually geek out over bags but Redland thought of everything and it’s now my go-to travel bag.
It’s not too bulky but can pack A TON of stuff: laptop, tablet, camera bag, gimbal, books, notebook, toiletries and lot more. There is a compartment for everything, it brings a sense of organization to my belongings which I desperately needed. can’t believe I was walking around before with a backpack that only had 2 compartments and my stuff cramped together. I really like that this Redland backpack nobly keeps its form even when nothing is in it, unlike my old Jansport which depended on the contents within it to hold any shape.
They Thought Of Everything
The Redland Jonah backpack comes equipped with:
- A Fully Waterproof Exterior: we’re not talking about being able to handle some bad weather, you can fully submerge it in water and all your devices will remain unharmed
- Charging Mechanisms: this pack comes equipped with a 10K mAh portable charger (for reference, you can charge an iPhone X 2.3 times off that) and a built-in charging port in the side pocket
- RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) Blocker in Front Pocket: essentially thieves have found a way to wirelessly steal your credit card and passport information through scanners or RFID apps on smartphones
- 2 Discreet, Hard to Find Pockets:a good place to store small valuables
- Retractable key leash in the side pocket:this is a big deal for me. My name is Ari and I’m a perpetual key loser
- Quick access (padded) laptop pouch: comes in handy when TSA is ushering you through the line like cattle. It can easily fit a 15.6″ laptop in there along with a 10″ tablet
- Separate bag for cables:It says “toiletries” on it, but it’s really up to you to decide.
- Reflective Saftey Feature: can be seen from both sides and head on

If I sound like I’m gushing over this backpack, it’s because I am. It’s coming with me on all my future trips. My only piece of constructive criticism would be that the zippers should go down a little farther in the main compartment — it makes it kind of difficult reach my things at the bottom when the bag is full. Aside from that minor inconvenience, the Redland Jonah backpack is a winner. You can currently take a look at it on Indiegogo On-Demand where it’s going for $79.
