The Balance™ EcoSmart® Backpack has advanced ergonomic design for maximum comfort, with adjustable features that help distribute load evenly and helps to reduce fatigue from long-term wear. Its PVC-free fabric is woven from recycled water bottles, its hardware is nickel-free, and its zipper pulls are recyclable.

The Balance backpack boasts enhanced protective elements like the SafePort® Sling Plus, which suspends your laptop inside the pack to help protect it from drops, plus padding on both the side and front of the device for additional protection. Weather-resistant materials also fare well against the elements to help keep your devices, paperwork, and business cards safe.

This pack’s purposeful design helps you commute from office to home with ease. Strategically placed pockets organize your accessories in the workstation and a large compartment at the bottom of bag is the perfect place to store your power brick. And for busy commutes on the train or a squeeze through a narrow aisle we’ve put a handle on the side so the pack will easily fit into tight spaces.

Turning Bottles into Bags

On the journey from bottle to bag, plastic water bottles are first shredded into small flakes. Those flakes are re-polymerized into plastic chips that are then heated and spun into yarn. Finally, that yarn is stitched and sewn into the fabric of our EcoSmart bags.

Ergonomically Designed

Adjustable features help distribute the packs’ load evenly, which can help to reduce fatigue from long-term wear. To ensure the pack makes contact with key body touchpoints, we’ve devised a hinge system on the shoulder straps and placed padding at the lower back. The sternum strap also helps to keep the pack snug to the body so that weight moves downward rather than bearing the brunt of weight on your shoulders.

It Stands on Its Own

The Balance™ EcoSmart® stands on its own – literally! This pack’s layered design and structural piping keep the bag upright wherever you set it down. That way, it’s easy to reach your gear and still looks sharp as it stands tall in client conference rooms and board meetings alike.

Innovative Protection

This bag provides all-around device protection with the SafePort® Sling Plus. It looks like a standard laptop pocket, but it’s anything but standard. Inside, a neoprene cradle suspends your laptop to avoid contact with the floor of the bag. And the cradle is protected on all sides with Targus-quality foam for front and side protection from knocks.
