OnePlus is launching a sleeker and more stylish backpack alongside OnePlus 6T

Earlier OnePlus launched its cool backpack alongside OnePlus 5 and this fall OnePlus is launching a better and more stylish version of its backpack alongside its upcoming latest flagship OnePlus 6T. The Explorer is evidently an effort to appeal to a more image-conscious demographic.

OnePlus might be looking to step up to a higher price bracket, but the company isn’t yet revealing the pricing, which makes judging the bag itself kind of impossible. The Explorer is all about its side-access pockets. There’s one at the front, where you can stash reasonably large items like a charger, a pencil case, and your phone and headphones.

Then there’s the laptop compartment at the back, which is also accessible from the side, and right alongside it is a mini side pocket designed to hide away your passport, wallet, or, again, phone. The main compartment can be accessed by lifting up the flap and opening a zipper that exposes the top and one side in the shape of an L. And then there’s a vented pocket right at the front, which is designed to fit an umbrella or a sweaty gym T-shirt.


The Explorer backpack will be available in either a nominally green color that looks mostly gray (pictured at the top, with an orange accent on the pull-tab at the front) or a basic black. Its exterior is made of water-repellent Cordura, and the one zipper exposed to the elements also has a water-resistant seal around it. We should know the full price and release date details around the same time as OnePlus launches the OnePlus 6T.
