Have you heard of a unique safety item? It’s called the Havlar Backpack. We have previously written of Daryl Gibson and his innovative idea of creating ‘the first anti-theft backpack that contains a removable personal safe and tethering cable’. It really is your safe! Our previous post was a while ago. Since then things have progressed!

The idea for the Havlar Backpack arose from an experience Daryl had in a hockey change room.  His unattended valuables were stolen from the change room when his team was competing on the ice.  

It’s a common problem in Canada where athletes are separated from their valuables (wallet, smartphone, keys, medication, jewellery etc) when competing.

Daryl thought to himself: ‘Wouldn’t it be neat if I could take a small and portable safe with me when I’m playing hockey, conceal it in my sports bag, and tether it to something structural so I’m not a victim of snatch and grab theft’.

Daryl asked his father, Tom, to assist because he knew that Tom could bring value to the journey, based on his years of business experience’.

Tom had also completed an entrepreneur program for seniors at the Community Innovation iLab in Oshawa, Canada.

Congratulations to Daryl (and his family)!  Creating a product is hard enough.  Throw in Covid and it becomes a mighty challenge. It’s a challenge that Daryl overcame.
