New Survivor Bags

Survivor’s new bags provide unmatched protection from drops, impact and the elements

Las Vegas – January 4, 2016 – Griffin Technology, creator of award-winning and thoughtfully designed mobile accessories, announces a new collection of bags to its best-selling Survivor line. Survivor Backpack and Survivor Briefcase are TSA-compliant and offer crush-and-weather-proof protection for laptops, tablets and other tech, no matter how far off the beaten path life takes you.

Both Survivor Backpack and Survivor Briefcase boast enough room for all the gear users need, including a 15-inch laptop, full-size tablet and smartphone in padded, weatherproof compartments. Built with convenience and usability in mind, the main compartments are surrounded by an internal shatter-proof plastic shell and honeycombed sidewalls that provide impact protection and are sealed from rain, snow and sleet with weatherproof zippers. Wide, padded shoulder straps are lined with breathable mesh for comfort. Combined with a water-resistant ballistic nylon construction and a molded, high-density foam and padded pocket, Survivor Backpack is designed to protect gear from 6-foot drops while Survivor Briefcase protects from 4-foot drops.

“Our goal was to create bags that live up to the Survivor name and are purpose-built for traveling,” said Amy Fielder, Survivor Category Manager at Griffin Technology. “TSA inspection is easy as the main compartments zip completely open to lie flat without having to remove your laptop or tablet, and water bottle clips, D-rings, carabiners and the belt clip of any Survivor smartphone case can be conveniently attached to the nylon strapping on the exterior.”

With a 30-liter overall capacity, Survivor Backpack ($225.99) has a total of 16 compartments and pockets to store and organize cables, chargers, pens, change, tickets and everything else that seems to wind up floating loose in the bottom of typical backpacks. Features include:

Main Compartment

  • Gusseted padded laptop pocket with velcro closures to keep laptop suspended within the armored compartment
  • Full-sized tablet pocket lined in soft, no-scratch brushed fleece with velcro strap
  • Zippered magazine or file pocket lined in high-contrast ripstop nylon; the bright lining makes the interior of the pocket more visible

Front Compartment:

  • Deep main compartment, large enough to hold a folded shirt
  • Full-width flat file pocket

  • Cable pass-through grommets from inside the front compartment make it easy to connect your phone to a battery pack to recharge while it’s put away.

With a 20-liter total capacity, Survivor Briefcase ($189.99) has 10 compartments and pockets to carry all the gear you need for everyday journeys.  Features include:
