OnePlus might be making the best flagship smartphone in the mid-range price segment right now. OnePlus 6T, the newest flagship from the company, breaks new barrier by making in-display fingerprint sensor accessible to a large number of smartphone users. While it is known for its premium flagship devices, it also makes some of the best accessories in the market right now.

Apart from smartphones, OnePlus is known for accessories like earphones and backpacks and its newest backpack called the Explorer Backpack might be its best yet. The company ventured into backpack business with the launch of OnePlus Travel Backpack a couple of years ago. Like its smartphones, OnePlus takes a minimalist approach to the design of its backpack as well.

Ahead of the launch of OnePlus 6T, OnePlus had revealed that the company will be launching the Explorer Backpack alongside the smartphone. While the Explorer Backpack did not become available immediately, the company has now revealed that it is available for sale in India through an invite. The backpack is priced at Rs 4,990 and will be available across OnePlus offline channel and Amazon India at a later stage.

OnePlus Explorer Backpack: Key Features

The Explorer Backpack, as one would expect, builds on company’s minimalist design language and it comes with multiple compartments, which will make it easy to sort and organize things on-the-go. There is a nifty secret pocket on the back which is meant to keep smartphone or passport safe. Inside, there is a padded laptop partition and backpack features a compartment with breathable vents designed for wet items like umbrellas and wet clothes.

There is also a storage for water bottle and the backpack is made from a water-resistant material, making it easy to clean and use it in rain without any problem. The backpack contains a single zipper, a fold-over cover and a premium magnetic FIDLOCK, seen only on expensive backpacks.

The Explorer Backpack users need only one hand to pull and pop it open. The design also allows for even distribution of weights, the company said in a statement. “Because its tear and scuff-resistant and exceptionally strong, we used CORDURA classic fabric for our Slate Black design. Its durability makes for a product that will travel with you for years to come,” said Donna, Product Manager of the new OnePlus Explorer Backpack.

OnePlus Explorer Backpack ticks on a number of areas including high storage capacity and smart compartmentalization. However, its USP has to be style and the use of unique craftsmanship and design. The Explorer Backpack comes in slate black and morandi green colors.
