Working in today’s world implies (most times) carrying gear back and forth between your home and your office. And this is not an easy job … laptop, tablet, mouse and cables, chargers, headphones, paper files and who knows what else … gear packs up and gets more and more difficult to carry around.
The CaseLogic 15.6-in Laptop & Tablet Backpack is designed around this issue and offers a convenient solution for storing and carrying your gear while you roam around. The backpack sports a laptop and tablet dedicated compartment padded for anti-shock protection and a middle compartment designed around carrying more bulky items like books, laptop chargers, umbrellas, some light clothing or paper files. Other than these two main compartments, we find a handful of other useful smaller pockets such us: a top loading pocket with plush lining for smartphones, 2 side pockets (one sports an incorporated key ring to secure your keys, the other one has a headphones thread designated slot for easy music listening), a lumbar anti-smuggler pocket designed to keep your most precious gear away of prying eyes, a top-front pocket for small gear you need handy at any moment (thing about pens, USB drives, external HDD, etc …) and a front larger pocket which can easily hold a newspaper, sunglasses case or a smaller umbrella.
The backpack features lumbar padding for comfortable transport, the thick foam back padding with breathable mesh is designed to allow a constant air flow for increased comfort, a secondary front bottom handle allows easy grip in case of carrying heavy gear, an adjustable sternum strap secures the backpack while the padded shoulder straps provide comfort while carrying the backpack for longer periods of time.

Before using it I was never a big fan of laptop backpacks and I always preferred classic laptop cases such as this one or this one. Well, this CaseLogic backpack changed my opinion and became pretty quickly my preferred laptop bag. Check it out …
