LifeProof, known for its range of ultra protective and waterproof cases for iOS devices, today announced the launch of a new lineup of rugged, high-capacity backpacks.

LifeProof is debuting four different backpacks with prices that range from $99.99 to $179.99, called the Quito, Squamish, Goa, and Squamish XL.

According to LifeProof, all of the backpacks are made from a water-repellent Cordura fabric with weather-lined tech pockets that include a headphone passthrough option, a 3L hydration reservoir, tie-downs for expanded storage, and chest straps for comfort purposes. Each pack is available in three colors: gray, black, and red.

The Quito, priced at $99.99, is the smallest of the four packs with an 18-liter capacity. It does not feature a dedicated laptop compartment, but it does hold 3L of liquid and it comes with interior pockets for organizing accessories.

Stupid idea from a desperate company that got away with selling overpriced cases to consumers for years. Now that waterproofing technology has caught up with them, this company is headed to zero. And these bags won’t sell. “Lifeproof” is not a brand. It also doesn’t fit or describe the purpose of the backpacks at all, so stitching Lifeproof on them is even entirely more nonsensical. LOL!!!!

I like the Lifeproof cases, but going into backpacks where there are well established players, I'm not sure how good of an idea that will be. On paper they sound decent enough, but they don't say much about ergonomics or how they fit with other equipment except the laptop.
