Like Apple is to cellphones, we don’t need to tell you that Samsonite is one of the most reliable brands when it comes to backpacks and luggage-related gear. The brand has been consistently robust, well-designed, and long-lasting. And though the company is well over 100 years old, it still manages to surprise us from time to time.

Its latest headturner is the new SXK Prime Expandable Backpack, part of the new SXK line of bags that were all built using nylon and reinforced with DuPont Kevlar, giving them optimum robustness. And they’re all designed with all the features you’ve come to expect from Samsonite, like interior and exterior pockets, tablet and laptop compartments, and so on.

In particular, the SXK Prime includes a quick access back lumbar pocket that offers RFID protection, which means you can safely store your cards in here for maximum security. And in case you need a lot more extra space, you’ll be happy to know that this bag expands 1.5 inches on all four sides, giving you extra room to put your other stuff in.

Other notable features include glass filled nylon zipper pulls for lightweight and high strength durability, air channel mesh padding on the back and shoulder straps for added comfort, EVA padded nylon webbing side handle for added comfort and multifunctional carrying options, and more. Amazingly, the whole thing weights just 4.2 pounds.

If you’re looking for the most durable and reliable travel bag, you probably won’t do any better than Samsonite’s SXK Prime Expandable Backpack. You can get it now for $350.
