Get military grade-protection with Targus’s new collection of backpacks

Designed for the city, but built for the battlefield. The new Grid series by Targus features products that have passed the military standard MIL-STD-810G, having incorporated a protective system that protects from drops and bumps.

No less than four layers of high-performance, lightweight material are used as protection, with thick rubber bumpers, PU/PVC leather, memory foam and nyflex lining amongst the materials used. Also, the outer lining is water-resistant polyurethane, which keeps everything within safe and dry.

The Grid series backpacks are built to military standard.

The Grid series consists of three backpacks and two slipcases, with three styles of backpack. There’s the Grid Premium 32L, Grid Advanced 32L and the Grid Essential 27L. Both the Grid Premium and the Grid Advanced come with reinforced bases and corners, and the straps and back panels are designed with breathable vents for added comfort under the heat. The Grid Premium comes with a dedicated compartment for sunglasses and smartphones while the Grid Essential on the other hand, comes with most of the features but in a smaller 27L capacity for everyday use.

The Slipcases have smaller profiles but don't compromise on protection.

Meanwhile, the Grid High Impact Slipcase and Vertical Slipcase offer carrying solutions in sleek, refined silhouettes for professionals on the go. Designed with a detachable anti-slip shoulder strap with a zippered front pocket for quick grab items, the slipcases have a hooded design with magnetic closure for the main compartment so that all your items stay safe within.

Reinforced rubber corners again protect your devices from bumps and thumps, and there’s also a large back pocket to accommodate a tablet and other important documents. The Vertical Slipcase also has a card holder on the back panel, adding yet another convenience to the busy executive.

The 16" Grid Premium Backpack 32L, 16" Grid Advanced Backpack 32L, and 16" Grid Essential Backpack 27L are available at all authorized retailers for S$259.90, S$229.90 and S$199.90 respectively, while the Grid High Impact Slipcase comes in 15.6" and 14" options for S$139.00 and S$129.00. The 12" Grid High Impact Vertical Slipcase goes for S$119.00.
