I knew Lifepack needed all the bells and whistles while offering safety features and style.”

Lifepack sports a weather-resistant bag has an organized and drop-resistant storage system, four hidden pockets, and RFID-blocking passport and wallet pockets. Lifepack's Solarbank is a USB charger capable of charging an iPhone 6 up to 12 times, as well as the accompanying Bluetooth speaker.
