Developed by XD Design and funded through Kickstarter in May 2017, the Bobby Bizz is the business briefcase and backpack counterpart to the equally popular casual backpack, the Bobby. The anti-theft and stylish design of the Bobby Bizz, alongside its larger-than-it-looks storage space, makes this my pick for an everyday bag.

Safety: The Bobby Bizz is designed to be Anti-Theft, with hidden zippers and hidden pockets. A total of 5 layers, including an Anti-Cut impact resistant polypropylene protection board, anti-shock foam padding, a lightweight metal frame, and heavy duty 600 denier polyester fabric renders it snug and comfortable, yet secure. The Road Security Reflective Stripes offer 360° visibility, though I wish the illuminating strips were slightly thicker in size.

Balance: The Bobby Bizz is ergonomically designed, with Optimal Weight Balance that relieves 20% - 25% of the bag's weight in backpack mode. The Adjustable Open Angles offer 3 different styles of opening, from 30° to 180° angles. This allows for easy access to content, regardless if you've placed the bag on a table, if you're holding it, or even if the bag is hanging from a hook.

Storage: The Bobby Bizz is Dual Function, converting from a briefcase to a backpack (I personally prefer the latter), with Quick Access Pockets on the straps that allow for card or cash storage. With Advanced Storage Design, Organised Storage, the bag can carry up to 20kg, and fits medium sized notebooks / laptops, tablets, stationary items, clothing, water bottles, small umbrellas, keys, headphones, medium sized cameras, documents, and more. Quite a lot of stuff can be packed in at the same time! And with the Adjustable Luggage Strap, this allows the bag to be attached to your luggage when travelling.

Materials: The Bobby Bizz has a detachable Shoulder Strap, and YKK Zipper. This reowned zipper from Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha / Yoshida Company Limited is known for being incredibly dependable, with zipper teeth that lock together smoothly, and don't get misaligned. The bag is also Water Repellent, with its waterproof coating and fabric, and helps keep the contents within dry.

Extras: It's the additional little touches that make the Bobby Bizz great. With Shockproof, Security Lock the zinc alloy number lock allows you to secure the bag to poles, hooks, and more. A stainless steel wire, integrated into the right shoulder strap, makes stealing impossible unless heavy duty wire cutters are used. Finally, an Integrated USB Charging Port allows you to connect and charge your phone securely while on the go, though a portable charger isn't included with the bag.

I've been using the Bobby Bizz since January 2018, and I love it. It's safe, it looks sleek and slim, and I can pack a lot of stuff inside without it becoming bulky. Yet it's safe and secure, and well-balanced when carried. I've actually influenced at least 5 other people to purchase this since I started using it, simply because the design of the Bobby Bizz is so innovative.
