The HyperPack Pro is designed to transform a humble backpack into an easy-to-find container that can also fit all the equipment of a power user’s portable workspace.
As technology continues to advance, it seems that more and more of the products we use almost every day are being upgraded to perform tasks they couldn’t handle in the first place. The HyperPack Pro takes a regular backpack and lets you find it and carry all the tools you need with you in a rugged and durable design.
Portability, safety and security are the areas Hyper hopes to achieve with its new backpack. With support for the Apple Find My network and more pockets in each compartment than can be counted on the fingers of one hand, the HyperPack Pro makes some promising arguments that this is the perfect backpack.
If you carry around a lot of wires and devices and need something portable and easy to carry around, then the HyperPack Pro might be an option if you can afford its retail price.
Design that keeps on giving
HyperPack Pro may seem slick at first glance, but once you open it fully, you’ll see just how deep and expandable it is.
Each compartment of the backpack has different pockets that vary in size, depth and ease of use. Some pockets can be used for anything, while others have a more specific purpose.
When you look at the back compartment of the backpack, you will see that it has deep pockets and sleeves that allow you to store multiple devices there without worrying about space.
Catch all the coupes
The Catch All compartment is the largest and deepest part of the backpack where you can store all your various devices and accessories. You can put your headphones and laptops in there, or any other materials you would like to take with you.
Rear compartment for laptops and tablets
Two mesh pockets hold wires and cords that you can use later if you need them to power your devices or connect to an external monitor.
Another device case allows you to hold a MacBook or tablet up to 13 inches.

This compartment has an anti-scan pad and multiple pockets to store more accessories and devices while you’re on the go.

At the top is an RFID compartment that can store items you don’t want to be scanned. These can be passports, credit cards, or any other valuables that you carry with you.

Below are pockets with an orange header that fit phones, wallets, small devices or portable chargers and/or hard drives. Beneath the orange pockets are smaller pouches that are great for storing AirPods or any other small earbuds.
At the bottom of the Tech Organization compartment, there is a zippered mesh pocket inside which you can store a portable battery. The pocket can hold massive batteries, so don’t think it can only carry small ones.
On the sides of the compartment are small hooks and loops that allow you to run the charging cable from the battery pack to any of your devices without the cable tangling loosely and preventing you from accessing the items in your bag.
Through the HyperPack Pro, you will see a small opening labeled “Power Pass Thru”, this allows you to thread the charging cable through it and access other compartments through the backpack. This is great because it allows you to store the battery in the Tech Organization compartment, but still be able to charge a MacBook or iPad that is in the back.
Power Pass Thru Cutout
On the right side of the backpack is a MagSafe compatible charging bag that allows you to run a MagSafe charging puck through the Power Pass Thru – from your existing portable battery pack – and store it in a tiny pocket in the side compartment.
Side MagSafe Bay
You can place any MagSafe compatible device in the right compartment and it will instantly attach to the puck and start charging.
On the left side of the backpack there is a pocket that can hold a water bottle up to 1 liter (34 ounces). The pocket is deep and wide enough to keep the bottle safe and not worry about the water bottle falling out.
There is a compartment in the front of the backpack that opens with a zipper that runs right down the middle almost from top to bottom. It opens outward and has plenty of storage space for bulky items, especially windbreakers.
Open front compartment
Above it is a holder for glasses, inside which there is a microfiber lining. This allows your glasses – whether they be reading glasses, sunglasses or whatever – not to get scratched or damaged when carried there.
Lower rear compartment
There is another compartment on the lower back, which opens with a zipper in the lower half of the backpack and allows you to store additional items there.
Luggage strap and lower rear compartment
This is a good place to store valuables – such as a passport, wallet and/or credit cards – while carrying a backpack. It is located in the lower back so thieves cannot access it when it is on you.
The exterior is not made of fragile material, it is strong and durable, and can withstand the weight and conditions you might experience it.
The HyperPack Pro is made from 1260D nylon Cordura fabric making it waterproof, and the zippers have a locking design that prevents people from easily opening it to take what’s inside. The material has an IPX4 waterproof rating.
A side handle is also present on the left side of the backpack so you can carry it with one hand.
There is a luggage strap on the back that allows you to place the backpack on the handles of the luggage bag while traveling if you do not want to carry it on your back.
Find My Support
The main feature of HyperPack Pro is its integration with the Apple Find My network and the ability to find your backpack using Find My.
Find my connection button
Setting it up is quite simple, you press the button located at the top of the backpack for five seconds until it appears in the Find My app. The backpack will beep to let you know it’s ready to pair.
Find my setting
The rear compartment has a bag on top that you can open to access the locator battery. The backpack uses CR2032 batteries – the same ones used in AirTags.
It’s good to have a tracker in your backpack while traveling because it will notify you on your iPhone if you leave it.
If you can’t find your backpack, you can summon a sound from it. The sound is pinged at 90 dB and is different from the AirTag sound.
HyperPack Pro does not currently have a precise search capability. This feature, found on AirTags, allows you to use your iPhone to pinpoint your subject.
More than a regular backpack
The HyperPack Pro offers more than a traditional backpack in terms of portability, durability and safety, which is evident throughout its design.
The material it’s made of is durable and resistant to water and other spills and can be used every day. You can tell how durable a material is just by feeling it on the outside.
Lockable zippers provide security and peace of mind knowing that no random stranger can come up behind you, open your bag and take something out of it.
All of the compartments offer plenty of space – all spread out from a 22L capacity that a backpack can hold – and some sleeves and pockets can hold devices ranging in size from the largest MacBook Pro to the size of AirPods.
The side MagSafe compartment is a nice touch if you have a MagSafe charging puck and a compatible device, but if you don’t, you can still use it to charge your devices via the Power Pass Thru – it’s a great design. a choice that allows access to power in each compartment.
The Find Me integration is a nice touch, but it might make you wonder if you can get the same level of security by attaching an AirTag to a regular backpack. You can, but the only difference will be that it will be easier for someone to remove the AirTag, and that the sound from it may be muffled from inside the backpack.
The HyperPack Pro is an amazing backpack that offers plenty of storage, security and durability. The biggest downside is the price, which should be $200 when it hits store shelves.
If you travel a lot, take a lot of devices with you, and can afford the asking price, then the HyperPack Pro might be the best backpack for you. This is almost the perfect backpack for any traveler with a lot of gadgets.
