I remember being in elementary and middle school, and I hated my backpack. It felt childish and immature, and decidedly less fashionable than the tote bags and side packs all the older kids used.
Oh, how I have changed. As an adult with tons of stuff to drag from Point A to Point B, combined with things like inclement weather and random errands, I’ve learned that utility trumps fashion. As I prepare to exchange my chic pebbled leather tote for a backpack that can pack a ton of my daily necessities and last a lifetime, here are some of the picks me and my Inverse friends are shopping:
This Nomatic Backpack does it all. With measurements 18.5”x5”x12”, the NOMATIC backpack can also turn into a handy briefcase for all your needs. This feature doesn’t compromise the overall functionality of the back, which is waterproof, can expand its base, holds up to a 15’’ laptop and 12’’ tablet. Personally, my favorite part is the pockets; it has specifically designed location for your water bottle, cell phone, keys, and other accessories. It’s the perfect investment.
The 5.5 star average doesn’t lie. The BOPAI Laptop Backpack is specifically designed for the techie on the go. One notable feature is the anti-theft design, which is a concealed double zipper that increases the security of the items inside. This also includes a hidden zip pocket for your wallet and phone. It’s measurements clock in at 16.5”,11”,2.7”, and is more affordable than other competitors. It’s Amazon’s Choice, so it should be yours too!
From the ultra-minimalist and monochromatic Huckberry e-shop, meet the Evergoods CPL4. Made for the urban jungle, it is armed with a 500D nylon shell fabric with a water-resistant coating and finish, and is equipt with fully padded laptop compartment fits laptops up to 15”It has a pocket and zipper access from the side of the bag or the top, and both a side handle and top handle for alternate carry option. What’s not to love?
Our most cost-efficient bag has the perfect luxe feel. The Mancro backpack is a bit larger, with measurements of 20” x 12.2” x 5.7”, so it can hold a bit more than some of its competitors. Styled with convenient main pockets for iPad, charger, binders, books, clothes, and more for optimal organization. With a bonus USB port for all your charging needs and a lock for theft protection, what more do you need?
