Imagine a backpack with extraordinary features like a battery only noticeable when needed, hands-free lighting, and a solar panel to power it all. Now imagine it looks ordinary enough to take in public.


KAUKAUNA, WI – September 15th – The new Omnipack being launched on Indiegogo, is the brainchild of Alex Mahnke and the Labs’ team. Since the age of 16, when he launched the original Omnipack that shipped to 13 different countries, Mahnke has been refining the design of the pack through small test runs to receive consumer feedback for the team’s latest pack design.

Several electronic backpacks have been released since 2013 when Mahnke started his quest, so what makes the Omnipack the trailblazer?

To start, the Omnipack combines textiles and technology, into one harmonized entity. This means, there are no dangling wires, USB cables, or rogue power banks inside the backpack. Nothing that could be damaged or get caught on the user’s luggage. The solar panel is not the only source of power, the built-in battery has the capability to charge a regular smartphone two times. The pack also illuminates the night, with lights located on both the shoulder strap and back side of the pack. Say goodbye to bringing a flashlight or draining your phone battery with the flashlight app. With the click of a button, the Omnipack provides the user with hands-free lighting. In addition to these useful features, the Omnipack also uses grade ballistic nylon with a rubber coating on the backside, making the fabric waterproof and more rip resistant. Finally, when it comes to the bulk of electronic backpacks, they have priced anywhere from one to a few hundred dollars. The Omnipack is being offered at a modest price that reflects what an average person could justify paying. Find it on Indiegogo for a limited time at $79, with the first few early bird backers getting the pack for $69!
