Matein Mlassic Backpack Reviews

Before investing in an anti-theft backpack, it’s critical to read through the reviews written by current owners to see if this bag is perfect for you. I can tell you right now that this bag has more than enough pockets, great padding for your laptop, and thousands of happy customers.

  • The laptop compartment is “really soft” and easily fits larger laptops. Your laptop definitely won’t hit the ground when you secure it in the Matein’s laptop compartment.
  • “Tons of space” and an insane amount of pockets for easy organization
  • Everything inside the bag stayed dry for one person who got stuck in fairly heavy rain.
  • One person used only this bag for a 12-day excursion through Europe. With the help of space saver bags, she had enough clothes for the entire trip. She was also able to use it as a carry-on on more strict budget airlines including WOW and EasyJet.
  • The black color is more dark grey than black.
  • It looks small from the outside but holds a ton on the inside. This is one of the aspects I look for when purchasing a new travel backpack.
  • Great price for the quality of the bag
  • A frequent traveler called this the best bag he’s ever owned after buying “countless” other bags.

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 under $50 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.

Whenever I see a product with thousands of positive reviews and more than 80% five-star on Amazon, I know for sure that it is a solid product.

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!
