Review Of Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack

I recently published a post on smart backpacks. While creating that post, I did a lot of research which made me come across a lot of backpacks with awesome features. One of the backpacks that stood out during my research was the Oscaurt Anti Theft Travel Backpack.Image of a guy and a girl wearing an Oscaurt anti-theft backpack

This backpack immediately captured my attention which made me further research on it. Just so you know, I have not yet made use of this backpack but I am sure going to be getting myself one. I was really impressed with its sleek design and also with a lot of its features that I decided I was going to share my findings with my readers.

Understand Why I Selected This Product

One of the criteria that always captures my attention when researching on a backpack at least 90% of the time is lots of reviews(you can go check out my other criterias included in the post popular backpack brands).

I do this for a reason and that is because if there is a lot of reviews then a lot of people have made use of the backpack which means there would be a lot of opinions on people that have actually made use of the bag.

The Oscaurt Anti Theft Travel Backpack as at the time of writing this post had over 800 reviews and I made sure I went through every one of them – yeah, that’s how thorough I am.There were a lot of compliments and praises heaped on this backpack which says something about the backpack.An image of number of reviews this backpack got from Amazon

With those compliments and praises also came some complaints. I would have been really surprised if there were no complaints because nothing is perfect. In fact, I was actually expecting that.

There is a good chance that you arrived on this page because you were interested in knowing more about the Oscaurt Anti Theft Travel Backpack. I would lay out everything I found based on the research I carried out to enable you and I make an informed decision before we purchase this backpack.

The Future Of Backpacks

Just so you know, the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is a smart backpack which means that it is not your typical backpack. Smart backpacks have features that are somewhat more advanced than your regular backpack.

In this case, the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is not a high-grade tech smart backpack but it does come with some features that differentiate it from your regular backpack such as its design, having a USB charging port, its neat organization pattern and other awesome features.

I am really looking forward to finding out what more this backpack has to offer. Let’s continue with the review.

Protecting Your Stuff From The BadGuys

One of the striking features I immediately noticed from my first impression of the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack was its anti-theft design technology. If you take a closer look at the picture of the backpack you would notice that you would not be able to easily spot the zippers of the main compartment of the backpack.Image of the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Backpack

This is because the zippers of the main compartment are actually hidden behind the back of the backpack. This is very important when purchasing a backpack with anti-theft features because even if you lose your guard, pickpockets or anyone that want to steal your items from inside your backpack would find it difficult before they are able to locate the zipper of your bag.

I also noticed it had a reflective stripe on the front of the bag. I have not really seen this feature in a backpack before so I had to research further to know what it was. Turns out that it was actually placed there in other to make the backpack to be clearly visible in the night.An image of the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Backpack showing the reflective light radiating from the backpack

This was a really good idea and while it has its advantage of making the backpack visible at night, I think it would have a disadvantage of being able to give away your position quite easily in the dark.

To some people, this reflective stripe might be an advantage but to some others who do not like anything to give away their positions might probably be a disadvantage because the bad guys at night might be attracted to such lights.

This is just my opinion and should not affect the way you view the bag because I think it was a really cool idea.

Also, I found out that the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is equipped with a secret pocket behind the bag which you can use to keep some of your important items safe.

I was impressed with this anti-theft designing of the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack but while reading through the reviews left by customers that already bought the bag, I did notice someone say that the hidden zipper becomes exposed ones the backpack is filled which takes me to my next point on what I found out about the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack.

Organization Made Sexy

I hope when I buy this backpack it would look at least similar to what I see in the image below when I organize my items inside the backpack. It has a sexy look that makes me want to test it out as soon as possible. It looks clean and neat and is exactly just my style.

From my research based on what some blogs had to say about this Oscaurt backpack, I found out that it has one main compartment, two side compartments, and two hidden pockets. I also see other smaller compartments that can be used to store smaller items like phones, pencils, water bottles, and similarly shaped items.

It can be able to accommodate up to a 15.6 inches laptop and cannot take anything more than that. This seems to be one disadvantage of the small size of this Oscaurt backpack which is why the hidden zippers become exposed when the backpack is filled.

The only way I see around this is to make sure the backpack is not packed with a lot of items so it doesn’t get filled.

Is This Backpack Really Meant For Everyone?

Due to the fact that the inner compartment of the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is small sized, this backpack definitely is not be meant for anyone that carries a lot of items. You might be better of going for a backpack with a bigger size.

I own a laptop that is very close to 15.6 inches so I should have no problem making use of this backpack with my laptop inside but for those with laptops higher than 15.6 inches, you might be better off going for a backpack with a bigger inner compartment.

I had a backpack with similar size to the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack and even with my laptop inside the backpack, there was still reasonable space to be able to put some books so I am pretty positive I should be able to do the same with this backpack.

Due to the sleek designing of this backpack, I would say that it is more ideal for young adults and college or high school students. But if you are not a young adult and you feel you can still pull it off with this backpack then you can, by all means, go ahead and get yourself one because as they say age is just a number.

Charging Your Gadgets On The Go

This is one of a common feature with smart backpacks and the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack was no exception. It has an external USB charging port outside the bag and also has a built-in charging cable inside the bag. This is all cool and stuff but my problem with this is that it does not have a built-in power bank.Picture of a guy charging his phone from his backpack

You actually have to get your own power bank and connect it inside the backpack before you can use it to power your gadgets. I don’t see this as a big issue but still, it would have been awesome if it had a built-in power bank.

Separate Laptop Compartment

The fact that I have a laptop always makes me conscious of this particular feature whenever I buy a backpack.

I am always interested to know if the backpack actually has a laptop sleeve which separates the laptop from the main compartment of the backpack and just as luck would have it, the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack comes with a laptop sleeve padded with foam to help keep my laptop safe during my daily commuting.

You Have Never Seen This Before

I am pretty sure you have either opened a backpack or seen someone open their backpack. They normally open at a 30-degree angle. I have not seen a backpack that actually opens up to 90 degrees until I came across the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack. It is able to open from 30 degrees up to 90 degrees.Image of the Oscaurt anti theft backpack been able to open up to 90 degrees This is amazing and it would help you better organize items that are inside the backpack making it look just the way you want it to.

What I found Out About Its Water Repelling Ability

So this one is kind of a far stretch. A lot of products always advertise to be completely waterproof but very few are about to deliver on this promise a 100% and sadly the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is one of those that don’t completely deliver.

The best I was able to gather is that it is water repellent and the material used is able to reduce the amount of water that enters the backpack at least to a very reasonable level.

I consider this to be OK as I don’t want to find myself in the rain in the first place but if I am probably unlucky that day and the rain decides to pour down then the items inside my backpack would not be 100% safe.

The Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack was made with PVC polyester material which enables the backpack to be water resistant and also makes it pretty easy to clean.

This is a good material to be used in a backpack. I did find a customer that complained that even with this material used the front and bottom were difficult to clean when it was exposed to dust but these particular portions of the backpack are waterproof but he could not say the same about the other portions of the backpack so in my opinion those other portions are not completely waterproof but are water resistant to a reasonable extent.An image showing the back of the oscaurt anti-theft backpack

The back of the backpack was made with EVA elastic material and what I know about this material is that it helps to encourage better ventilation at the back of the backpack and oscaurt claims that it helps the backpack not to lose shape when heavy items are placed inside the backpack. I really hope this is true as I really like this backpack.

The Oscaurt Brand, Who Are These Guys

I don’t have a lot of experience with the oscaurt brand but from what I can find out they do make good backpacks that is able to function for a reasonable period.Logo of the oscaurt brand Although their products are not perfect and you might not be 100% satisfied but still I think they are a pretty solid brand and the oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack is one of their best works.

Is The $39.99 Really Worth It?

When I first came across the backpack and I looked at the pricing I said to myself that these guys are really fair in the way they priced this backpack.

After performing more research I went back to the pricing ones more and thought, well, they probably might have gone a little lower because even with this being a smart backpack and all, it doesn’t have a lot of features that actually defines a real smart backpack but in my opinion, the pricing is not bad.

My Final Verdict

Before I actually tell you about my opinion I would like to ask you what you think about the Oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack. Is it really worth it to invest $39.99? In my opinion, I think it is worth it. From the smart backpacks I have come across, the more features added to a backpack the higher the pricing.

The design and look of the backpack is spot on and its features are not bad at all. Although they have some features that need working on but all in all I consider the oscaurt anti-theft travel backpack to be a really good backpack.

The rating I gave to it which is 8 out of 10 is very fair as there is no way I was going to give it a 10 because there are still some improvements that need to be carried out.

These are just my opinions and I would like to read what you think about this backpack.

This is a really great post.  I had no idea that anti-theft backpacks even existed, but I want one! I like the idea of being able to charge my devices on the go, as well as the water-resistant properties that this backpack has.  Based on your recommendation I will likely be purchasing one of these backpacks in the near future.

    Manuel · January 28, 2019 at 7:24 am

    Thanks Nate for your comment. Anti-theft backpacks are becoming more common these days due to high crime rates. It is really good that some manufacturers have taken this into consideration and are therefore incorporating features into the backpack that can help reduce theft in a backpack. Oscaurt Anti-Theft Backpack was designed with some anti-theft features added to it.

Thank you writer for this lovely review for a wonderful item. This is really good for people like me who live in a crowdy and toxic environment with lots of pick-pockets around. Apart from its main qualities as reviewed by the writer, the sleek design and USB port and portability is what makes me love it because there would be mobility charging without stress.

The Level of it organization is second to none. TBH, this is the first time I’m seeing a lovely backpack like this, thanks to this wonderful writer. I’m gonna get myself one. 

    Manuel · January 28, 2019 at 7:30 am

    Thanks Kehinde for your awesome comment. The designing of this Oscaurt backpack is really nice and it has captured the hearts of a lot of people making a lot of customers happy.

Hello Manuel, 

Thank you for providing this awesome product review of the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack. I wish they had this kind of technology when I was in college. That would have been ideal for carrying my backpack to studio and charging it from anywhere. I appreciate you breaking down what a smart backpack should be and why it is not truly a smart backpack like some of the others. I am still new to the concept and I have a battery pack of my own that I take on nature hikes sometimes.

I think this technology could really be useful in a hiking backpack to keep someone connected even in remote areas where you would really need it in case of emergency. 

I really like the design of this backpack and think some of the anti-theft measures are pretty well done. But I would have also needed a bigger version of it to carry some of my books if I were still back in school. Sometimes, I had to carry multiple textbooks and notebooks so the bigger the better for me. I think there should be one specifically for architecture and engineering students since they require extra tools and supplies that aren’t traditional. 

I liked that you did your research on the reviews and went into details on the features. This is very helpful to narrow down who would directly benefit the most from this type of backpack. Maybe it’s more ideal for a beginner smart backpacker or just for someone who travels alot on business and only need to carry a laptop. I appreciate the thorough review and I will definitely look into getting my own at some point for the next time I travel. 

    Manuel · January 29, 2019 at 5:31 am

    Thanks Daniel for your comment. One of the disadvantages of the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack is actually its size. Its compartment is rather small-sized and cannot be used to carry a lot. If you need a larger sized smart backpack then Yorepek’s Extra Large Backpack would be right for you.

Fiona · January 28, 2019 at 7:32 am

I hadn’t realised there were smart backpacks on the market that include USB chargers. What a fantastic idea! I also love that the zip is cleverly hidden to discourage pickpockets – one less thing to worry about when travelling with expensive gadgets. I do appreciate you saying that it doesn’t have a huge capacity – with kids, we definitely need a backpack that can carry a lot of things!

    Manuel · January 29, 2019 at 5:35 am

    Hello Fiona, thanks for your comment. I do like the designing and the concept behind the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack with the exception of its compartment size. When it comes to size, the Yorepek’s Extra Large Backpack definitely has it beat.

Hi Manuel,

I have read the review of “Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack” product. I find that this product is important for all of us who want to travel with a laptop. Though it has some cons, I think it is useful for our digital life. I love it’s charging and reflecting stripe feature. Now only concern is water resistant ability. Is there any back pack available with same feature and water resistance ability? Over all I like the product and going to bookmark it for my future plan.

    Manuel · January 29, 2019 at 5:40 am

    Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, the Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack is not 100% waterproof. It is water-resistant though and is able to withstand some level of water. I would create a post for a backpack that is 100% water-proof. When I do, I would definitely link it to this post

Danette · January 30, 2019 at 5:43 am

To me, the safety provided for the laptop would be most important, so the laptop sleeve with foam padding is a big plus. 

The second thing would be the layout of the inside, and how much it helps with organization. The various compartments look adequate enough, but I think the biggest thing here is the fact that it opens up to 90 degrees.

Then the last thing I would look for as a necessity would be the sturdiness of the backpack as a whole. For that, I think it comes down to the reputation of the company. From what you’ve said, it sounds like they usually do make good backpacks.

So all things considered, my opinion would be that the price is maybe just slightly high, but pretty close to what I would be willing to pay for a smart backpack like this.

Thanks for the great review!

    Manuel · February 1, 2019 at 5:31 am

    Thanks Danette for your comment. The Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack is considered by many to be an awesome backpack. The pricing I think is not bad but they probably should have done better.

Ayodeji · February 2, 2019 at 5:55 am

I once ordered for an anti theft backpack and the delivered one was really annoying, in short I was disappointed with the product. I later got another one from a friend as gift and it was awesome to know your contents within the bag are super safe. But as an anti theft bag, I think the safety should be a code between the buyer and the user, putting it on the Internet exposes the measures. 

    Manuel · February 2, 2019 at 6:03 am

    Thanks Ayodeji for your comment. That is really true what you say about the anti-theft feature been so easily revealed on the internet and I was really reluctant to include it in this review but it was one of the qualities that made the backpack stand out which is why I included it. Your point though was spot on.

Louis · February 2, 2019 at 5:59 am

Hello Manuel,

Nice job you’ve done on this piece. I’ve heard of anti theft backpacks but not smart backpacks. The oscaurt anti theft travel backpack is a really good one because it has a lot of good qualities.

The ability to open up to 90° is quite unique, it’s anti theft design and even a special compartment for your valuables is also worthy of note. However, what stands this out for my is the USB port and even cable inside the backpack. I don’t mind cos I have a power bank already, so I can always charge on the go.

In my opinion, worth every cent.

Warm regards

    Manuel · February 2, 2019 at 6:07 am

    Thanks Louis for your comment. The Oscuart Anti-Theft Travel backpack does have some really awesome features and the USB port and cable inside was a really good add. I did find it discouraging that it did not come with a built-in power bank but if you have yours that you can make use of then that is just awesome.
