The JumpDrive is a lightweight and stylish USB flash drive – not some huge rubber and aluminum behemoths like some rugged drives – but yet capable of sustaining impact/pressure up to 750 PSI, extremes of weather, from -13°F to 300°F, and water submersion up to 98 feet.

The JumpDrive also comes equipped with EncryptStick Lite software, which Lexar bills as an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption that helps to securely protect files against data corruption, loss, and accidental deletion.

This JumpDrive supports which means reads speeds up to 150MB/s read and write speeds of up to 60MB/s write. Transferring a 3-gigabyte file takes under a minute, compared to the 4 minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive.

The drive is backward-compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices.
