With increasingly convenient technology comes ever-inventive ways to take it from one place to the next. Dicota has unveiled the BacPac Control, featuring room for a notebook up to 15” with the added bonus of an iPod controller integrated into the bag’s shoulder strap.

A user simply places their iPod into the “multimedia pocket” found on the bag’s shoulder strap and plugs their headphones into the adjoining connection and can then control their tunes via the touchpad on the front. Allowing track skipping as well as volume control, the unit caters for most iPods and iPhones.

The bag of course features several additional pockets for incidentals like drink bottles, USB drives and the like, and the high density foam padded main pocket of the bag detaches for transporting the notebook solo. The BacPac Control also boasts waterproof zippers and a key chain for remembering keys, and was even the recipient of a Red Dot design award this year.

Weighing in at around 1.2kg, the BacPac Control comes in black and grey and a closer look can be found at the Dicota website.
