If you’re looking for a cool light backpack to take with you on your travels, the one I got is pretty cool and worth checking out.
After buying my Chromebook, I realized I don’t have any nice backpacks to stick it in, so I decided to take a look at Amazon for some backpacks.
After browsing for awhile, I found one I thought was cool and hit the order button. Finally, it arrived, and now I can write this review for you.
I was specifically looking for lightweight laptop backpacks because I hate bulky backpacks. I’m not planning to backpack around the world (not yet at least) so I don’t need a backpack that was designed for a small car.
The exact model I bought is called
I didn’t really like the way it arrived; it was folded in half, but I think that might just be how they ship every backpack.
The style is pretty modern, black with a dark grey fade, super light, and there are tons of compartments inside too.
USB Charging Port for Power Banks.
One feature that makes this travel backpack interesting is the USB charger slot (USB Cable included, inside the main compartment).
The USB cable is right next to a net section where you can put your portable power bank.
So if you don’t have a power bank, might as well save yourself some trouble and order one with the backpack.
Recommend Power Bank:
One I recommend is called Anker 20100mAh Portable Charger PowerCore 20100 and it can charge your phone at least five times.
Grab one of those power banks, charge it, stick it in the backpack and plugin the USB cable – you’ll have a nice source of power right there.
With this cable you can charge your phone or other devices from outside the backpack with no problems.
Waterproof Material and Design:
Besides that feature, another bonus is the fact the backpack is waterproof.
The material is completely waterproof and the USB slot is pointed towards the floor so water can’t get in there either.
Make sure there are no gaps between the zippers and the interior of the backpack should remain completely dry.
Thankfully, my Chromebook fits nicely inside the laptop sleeve.
Inside the main compartment, there are two small net pockets for phones or other small devices. It keeps your phones secure while you charge them.
The second compartment is decent for papers and other documents, I put my Kindle Paperwhite in there.
In total, there are two main compartments and two small ones on the front and back of the backpack.
Total Compartments: Four.
And of course there are bottle holders on each side of the backpack as well.
I’m quite happy with the size of the compartments; they’re a lot roomier than I thought they would be.
Ideal for Carry On or Short Trips:
You can put enough clothes and stuff in here for maybe a week or so – so it’s a good backpack for carry on or short adventures.
Right after it arrived, I filled it up with some random stuff, and took it to the gym to see how it feels.
I’m happy to say the backpack was surprisingly comfortable; the thick padding on the straps and lower back were appreciated.
It also doesn’t stick out from your back that much so you don’t need to worry about slapping someone in the face with it.
The total shipping weight is about 1.1 pounds (0.49 KG) so it’s really nice and light – basically feels like wearing a shirt.
So all in all I’m satisfied with this purchase.
I’m quite happy with this backpack. It’s small, light, comfortable, and has compartments for all the equipment nomad bloggers need.
For the price, the backpack is an excellent choice. Combine it with a power-bank and you’ll set for some travel blogging!
