Targus Debuts Backpack With Find My Integration

Targus today announced the launch of the Cypress Hero Backpack with built-in Find My integration that works with the ‌Find My‌ app on Apple devices.

Priced at $150, Targus says that the backpack combines eco-friendly materials, laptop protection, and a built-in location feature to keep tech items safe. The backpack can be tracked through the Items tab in the ‌Find My‌ app, right alongside AirTags and other trackers.

There is a padded laptop compartment that fits laptops up to 15.6 inches in size, a main compartment for files and gear, a smaller pocket for accessories, and a quick-stash pocket at the front. It features a 22L capacity and a padded back panel for a comfortable fit.

The included ‌Find My‌ location module uses a CR2032 battery much like an AirTag, and the battery should last up to 300 days depending on usage.

Targus first announced the Find My-compatible backpack in November 2021 and showed it off at CES 2022, and it appears to have taken well over a year for the accessory to actually launch. This is not the first ‌Find My‌ backpack on the market, as Hyper (owned by Targus) also has a Find My-enabled backpack.

The Cypress Hero Backpack can be purchased from the Targus website as of today.

I don't understand. Why not just buy the backpack of your choice and drop in an AirTag?

Because that would be too smart, too flexible, and cost too little.

Might have been good 10 years ago, but who is buying this now in the AirTags era?

A backpack should be $15-40.
Sure, for an extremely basic and small bag that will only last for a short period...but $80+ is the going rate for backpacks with quality fabrics, quality hardware, quality construction, organizational features, and long, generous warranties. So depending on the specs of this Targus pack, $150 might not be a bad price.

Personally, I'd rather pay more $$$ up front for a backpack that is going to last for years (and that will be repaired or replaced by the maker for free for as long as I own the item) than save a few bucks by going with a budget brand.

But there are ones that cost even more than $150 so I guess some people might think this is OK?
