Numinous 1001 SMART City Backpack

When backpacks were first designed, they were very basic. In the last decade or so specialist backpacks have made an appearance. From backpacks with padded compartments for laptops and cameras to backpacks for outdoors pursuits to backpacks with wheels which are commonly used when travelling by air or on a train, backpacks keep reinventing themselves. A very clever new backpack has recently been launched by Numinous London, a luxury luggage brand based in the heart of London. Today, we take a look at the stylish 1001 SMART City Backpack from the Numinous London Smart Luggage range and see why we think it is one of the smartest executive backpacks out there.

The 1001 SMART City backpack is an executive medium sized backpack that has been designed specially for today's modern business travellers. With multi-pocket sections for files, a secure padded laptop/tablet compartment, a built-in charger to keep your devices powered while on the move and a very smart bio-metric lock, the 1001 SMART City backpack is the perfect companion for a business traveller.

  • Materials used: Nylon, Leather, Aramid Fibre & Polyester Lining
  • Weight: 1.5kg, Volume: 28l
  • Back compartment for laptop, middle compartment for documents and a front compartment with multiple internal pocket organisers
  • Puncture resistant zips
  • Anti-slash technology offering a high level of protection
  • A 4-slot bio-metric fingerprint locking system. TSA accepted
  • Padded backpack straps
  • Strong and comfortable carry handle on top
  • Front zipped pockets and side pockets
  • A power source in the front compartment allowing you to charge devices on the go

Performance and Our Experience


The 1001 SMART City backpack is a medium sized backpack perfect for 14-15 inch laptops. My 15.6 inch laptop also fits in comfortably but I cannot strap it in. My husband has a 14 inch laptop and it fits in the backpack perfectly. The first thing we both said, when we saw the backpack, was how stylish and unique it is. You cannot miss the attention to detail and the excellent quality of the materials used. The backpack just feels and looks better than any backpack we have seen or used so far. Whenever we have carried our laptop in the SMART City backpack, it has been well protected. The strap secures it in place and the padding offers protection. The backpack is very spacious with hundreds of pockets. Okay, not that many but enough to organise all your stuff. We could fit in a laptop, an iPad, a camera, a couple of books, keys, sunglasses and other bits and bobs comfortably. The backpack can become a bit heavy when fully loaded, but the padded and adjustable shoulder straps provide comfort. Cushioned pockets ensure that the backpack sits comfortably on the wearer's back, distributing the load uniformly providing extra comfort. This is excellent especially if you are going to carry the backpack daily to work.

Joey T35/T55 Power Source


The backpack features an integrated Joey power supply that can help recharge electronic devices on the move. This feature comes in handy when you are travelling. You no longer have to worry about finding plug points at the airport or elsewhere. You can charge most smart phones, iPods, tablets and MP3 players using the Joey. The main battery component is tucked away in one of the pockets in the backpack and the Joey access point that you would need for charging your devices has been placed conveniently near the top of the front compartment. The Joey makes a perfect paring with the SMART City backpack.

Fingerprint Lock


One of the best features of the backpack is the 4-slot biometric fingerprint lock. With the biometric mechanism, there is no longer any need for keys or codes. The lock can be coded to your fingerprint and you simply need to place your finger on the small biometric element to unlock the backpack. You can even add up to 100 additional fingerprints. This biometric lock is undoubtedly the most impressive feature of the backpack - an excellent use of technology.

Final Thoughts


The Numinous 1001 SMART City backpack is a very good combination of functionality, style and technology. The backpack is perfectly suited to business travellers. Made with high-quality materials, sporting a stylish and functional design and excellent use of technology, the backpack seems to justify its £256 price tag. It also comes with a limited 10 year global warranty. You can check out the Numinous Smart City Backpacks range here: www.numinouslondon.com

    1. Yes, it can be used as a carry on luggage for flights but is more geared towards a business traveller. It has a secure laptop compartment which enables you to remove the laptop with ease whilst going through security checkpoints. There are secure workspace compartments for A4 folders and documents too. The backpack is suited best for business travel.
