For most guys, toting a laptop or a tablet daily has become as common as carrying a wallet, keys, or phone. Access to technology is absolutely essential for everyone from a businessman like my husband (whose laptop gets trundled all over the country), to my son (who carries his around his college campus).
But, carrying a sensitive piece of equipment like a laptop or tablet safely and stylishly can be challenging. Messenger bags, while functional, are not inspiring on the style front. And, “grandpa” briefcases are simply out of the question.
However, I just found a solution that keeps computer equipment safe and looks great. It’s the Urbanite Laptop Travel Backpack by So.Chi-O. And, when this backpack arrived, I thought my two guys were going to wrestle for it.
Travel safely across the country, or just across town, with this specially padded backpack
This laptop travel backpack is designed specifically for carrying electronic equipment. The sleek design actually hides a multitude of special interior compartments.
For example, the super padded sleeves for laptop or tablet have adjustable Velcro straps to keep equipment safe. This pocket also keeps the computer upright and against the back, when worn. So, the backpack never tilts backward, like a regular backpack does.
The extra padded interior and Velcro straps also keep it secure. The computer or tablet will never slide around inside, like it often will with a standard school backpack.
There is also a secondary zip compartment, which is the perfect place to stash documents, books, and even clothes. Additional interior pockets keep power banks and cords neat and accessible. There’s a place for everything!
Keep belongings safe from the elements and thieves
A little rain? A bit of snow? This backpack can withstand it — and more. Since water and electronic equipment don’t play nicely together, the Urbanite Travel Backpack is created from specially reinforced material. It’s scratch and water-resistant to keep belongings working. Get caught in a downpour? An additional rain cover is included that will keep your bag dry, even during a torrential storm.
Other safety features include a hidden dual zipper design to prevent thieves from opening your backpack. This is so important when traveling! The main zipper comes with locking rings that fit most small padlocks. There is even a complimentary number wheel padlock included.
The Urbanite Travel Laptop Backpack is a stylish solution
The Urbanite Travel Laptop Backpack is available in two colors: classic black and charcoal gray. The minimalist design is suitable for even the businessman, since it doesn’t have an overtly collegiate or backpacker look. Available on Amazon Prime. Retail $35
