A waterproof design and ample storage space are features that many backpacks can boast—but in addition to these details, YNOT brings something new to the world of accessories.

In the same way that many small clutches and purses have magnetic closures, these Canadian-made backpacks are made with "auto-locating hardware" in order to make the process of securing valuables even easier on the go. To open, the German-engineered closures can be released simply by pushing them sideways. When the two sides of the hardware are nearby, they will automatically snap together to securely close the bag.

In addition to this being a feature of the 'Magnetica' backpack, this self-closing hardware can also be found in key chains and pouches from YNOT.
