Targus has announced the arrival of its latest series of backpacks, the Terminal T-II, in Malaysia. Packed with radio frequency identification (RFID) blocking technology, Targus claims that these backpacks are ideal to protect against “digital” pickpockets.
In the Terminal T-II lineup, there are three backpacks: the most affordable Essential, the slightly pricier Advanced, and the top-of-the-line Premium. Aside from the different price tags and appearances, there are certain differences between these backpacks; the Premium, for one, has a hard shell compartment for fragile items.
Of course, what makes these backpacks interesting is their RFID-blocking technology, which is increasingly more important. Essentially, this technology prevents individuals from stealing a user’s credit card – or worse yet, passport – information. Unfortunately, this technology is only integrated into one of the zippered compartments.
Other than the RFID-blocking technology, the Terminal T-II backpacks can fit laptops up to 15.6-inch, has a dedicated compartment for power bank storage, and a protective section for tablets – complete with what the company calls Nyflex lining. These backpacks also have a durability rating of 1680D, which is rather impressive.
The Targus Terminal T-II series of backpacks is now available for purchase in Malaysia from selected retailers. The Terminal T-II Essential goes for RM389, while the more feature-packed Advanced and Premium retail at RM439 and RM489 respectively. More information on these backpacks can be found here.
