RTG Backpack is great for travel!

Great product at a very good price. I've got the backpack version and it's great because I have a bulletproof vest that's also a functional backpack. I recently had an overnight stay in a motel and was able to pack my laptop (with power cord and mouse), my phone and tablet (along with power cords), and a complete change of clothes in the backpack. My wife didn't even know that I had a bullet proof vest with me. The only thing that I'd like to see is a video explaining how to repack the vest once it's been put on.
