A backpack that inflates

That’s right; if you need to (hopefully you won’t), you can use this bag as a floatation device. You can either blow air into the one-way nozzle with your mouth or with the company’s air pump. The air only releases when you press the yellow button inside the nozzle. Then the bag turns into a pressure-resistant floatation device that you can hold onto until help arrives—even if your bag is packed with things.

The four-in-one style options make this bag versatile

The best backpacks adapt to your needs. That’s why you can wear the MVB Life & Living Backpack Series in four ways: backpack, crossbody bag, side bag, and handbag because your carry needs are different depending on what you’re doing. So while cross-body might be great for carrying your bag from the parking lot to the office, a backpack carry style might be easier for airport travel. Both shoulder straps remove completely for a handbag style and the cross-body style keeps the bag securely against you.

Bags get dirty, but you don’t always have the time to wait for them to dry. So sometimes you skip a cleaning or two until the perfect washing opportunity arrives. With these inflatable bags, however, you’ll never have to put up with a dirty bag again. That’s because MVB Life & Living Backpack Series boasts a material that only requires a quick rinse to remove dirt and dries instantly. That’s right, you won’t have to wait for these bags to dry out before you can use them again.

A feature-rich bag that rises to every occasion

These inflatable bags come in two thicknesses: a 3.5-inch depth and a 5-inch thickness. You can also purchase the laptop bag that holds up to a 15-inch laptop, an accessory bag, and a steel hydro bottle. Finally, a badge with the MVB logo is embossed on every bag and comes in seven colors.

An eco-friendly backpack

You’ll also feel great using the MVB Life & Living Backpack Series because they’re made with TPU, an advanced material that’s more sustainable than alternatives containing toxic materials. TPU is recyclable and biodegradable and it will break down in the soil in 3-5 years. That’s a backpack anyone can feel great about purchasing.

These inflatable bags are more than just a way to tote your essentials around. They can be a lifeline in an emergency situation. But these backpacks aren’t bulky, unimaginative survival gear. They’re also stylish, modern bags you can wear every day and they clean conveniently. It’s great for professionals and anyone who likes to be out and about.

The bags in the MVB Life & Living Backpack Series cost $113 and you can preorder them on Kickstarter.
