Good afternoon fellow astral travelers, I’m your host Chuck. In today’s article, I share with you my Matein anti-theft Mlassic backpack review.

Currently, the Mlassic is a real crowd-pleaser that’s currently selling for a reasonable cost.

The video above shows you everything you need to see before purchasing. Next, I will tell you all the specifics, features, how to charge your phone, and last but not least, my review.


First, let’s see what this bag has to offer. Also since this site is all about protecting your valuable possessions, we will go over the anti-theft features offered by Matein.

  • Padded laptop compartment fits up to a 15.6″ laptop

  • There are loads of pockets to make organization easier and mesh side pockets to carry a water bottle or other items for easy access.

  • This backpack also has a USB port with an inner charging wire. You can put a power bank inside your bag and charge your USB accessories including your cell phone from the outside. No more fumbling around inside your bag or holding your power bank on your lap or inside your pocket to charge your phone.

  • Everything inside the bag stays dry if you get stuck in fairly heavy rain.
  • Fits as a carry-on for stricter European airlines

Charging Instructions

To charge your phone using the USB port, put your power bank inside the bag and connect it to the charging wire inside the bag.

Once you have your power bank connected, plug your phone into the USB port located on the outside of the bag using the charging cable for your phone.

Last, check your phone to make sure it’s charging.

My Review

Overall, I think the Mlassic is a great travel USB backpack and versatile bag. The thing I love most about it is that it comes with all the pocket options I need in a bag.

After traveling for many years now, I’ve come to realize how important organization is along the way. I know exactly where everything is in my bag.

The Mlassic gives you more than enough options to keep your possessions safe and organized while on the road.

The second feature I love is the padded laptop compartment. I owned a backpack in the past that I loved, but the bag didn’t keep my laptop from hitting the ground. My solution was to store my travel towel in the bottom of the laptop compartment. The Matein bag doesn’t have this problem.

As for the anti-theft features, the Matein doesn’t have the same options as other bags I’ve reviewed so far. If you’re interested in a more secure bag, check out my Kopack backpack review.

I give this bag a near 10 out of 10 as a budget backpack that gets the job done from every angle.

However, due to its lack of security features, it only gets a 6 out of 10 for security.

The bottom line is that for the price, you can’t go wrong with the Matein anti-theft backpack. You may find that later on you want to add a second bag to your collection, but I’m sure your Matein bag will still get used.

A lot of times we overthink when making a purchase, in the case of the Matein Mlassic, you can add it to your cart with confidence without looking back. Don’t waste your time picking apart every little detail of dozens of bags. Believe me, I’ve been there and it’s no fun!
