Although backpacks still remind some of us of middle school or campus life, we found they are one of the best ways to transport many essential elements like a laptop, lunch box, book for the commute, water bottles, and any other items you would need at the office, school, or travel. And the best part? Not only do backpacks help us load all the stuff we need to get through the day, but they balance the weight on two shoulders instead of one, making us feel comfortable to wear it all day and don’t hurt our bodies at all.
A good backpack should offer built-in organization, fit what you need, and not strain your back and shoulders. With that in mind, we have rounded up some great options for you. Wherever you are headed, these modern-style bag backpacks have you covered!
Laptops and tablets are getting slimmer and lighter, so they become our go-everywhere item for daily routine or business travel. If you can’t part from your laptop, you should consider a backpack that is specifically designed to carry valuable techs, just like this backpack laptop bag from Bosidu. It provides two different-sized main compartments to hold your daily essentials, including a padded sleeve for your laptop. And two smaller zip pockets to accommodate accessories like chargers, batteries, and fidget spinners. Also, two side pockets for water bottles or umbrellas are super handy.
