BLACKHAWK! Under the Radar Bags and Pouches

There's no two ways around it—society is awfully reliant on technology. Of course, it's no secret that the same things that make our electronics valuable to us also have a habit of making them quite appealing to would-be thieves. Worse, modern criminals are growing increasingly tech-savvy. To help combat such threats, BLACKHAWK! has released a nifty line of products that are designed to make your electronics both harder to find and harder to access remotely: Under the Radar pouches and bags.

The company's Under the Radar pouches are designed to house things like your phone, tablet or passport (and credit cards, too). Anything that utilizes RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) technology will emit a slight electronic pulse—and, with the right equipment, that pulse can be used to locate and track your property. Digitally attuned bad guys might even be able to remotely access private information on your devices, too, given the opportunity.

That's where the pouches come in. They're designed to block RFID electronic transmissions. Each pouch protects your electronic devices from remote exploitation by blocking incoming and outgoing signals. Are you going to be away from your tablet or laptop for awhile? Toss it in the appropriate pouch before you store it, and it'll be infinitely more difficult for a potential cyber-crook from to stumble across it. It's as simple as that.

Pouch Features:

• Incorporates Zero Trace signal blocking technology
• Protects electronic devices from remote exploitation by blocking incoming and outgoing signals
• Helps prevent tracking of devices
• Shields against unwanted reading of RFID technology found in U.S. passports, driver’s licenses, IDs and credit cards
• Constructed of 1050 denier nylon
• Electromagnetic interior lining blocks incoming or outgoing signals with roughly 33dbm of attenuation
• Foam padding for extra protection (except Cell Phone and Oversized Cell Phone Pouches)
• Vinyl window for business card or other identification (Passport Pouch only)

The courier bag, meanwhile, is simply a larger option. It can house a variety of your favorite gadgets, all at once, ensuring the safety of any important data they contain. Planning to do some traveling in the coming year? The Under the Radar courier bag is an efficient and simple way to ensure that your electronics are safe, no matter how many airports and Wi-Fi hotspots you lug them through.

Courier Bag Features:
