As a working adult, handbag is one of my staple accessories to work, and I usually prefer shoulder bag for the room, or sling bags for the hands-free convenience.
However, I tend to fill up my bag too much, and at sometimes it really feels like I am a carrying a kitchen sink around, especially when I have lunchbox and my water bottle together. So one day, after seeing my friends’ posts of this backpack, I was hooked!
So, I got myself one from Shopbob, it only took 4 days to reach me from the USA 😀 I love express shipping, especially when I can’t wait to receive my purchase!
The wraparound zip opens to one main compartment & laptop sleeve, and it has a front pocket and 2 sides pocket.
There weren’t many color choices, but I managed to pick this nice peach pink instead of a yellow.
Since it’s meant to be used often and bashed around, I tried to pick a color that’s more dirt resistant.
This backpack has only 1 large compartment and a sleeve for tablet or laptop, however, the sleeve is big enough for a tablet but not a 14″ laptop. It comes with a soft foam that I do not bother to remove, I like it being there to support the bag structure. For the main compartment, it’s big enough for a 15″ notebook, it is roomy and has more capacity than all my other handbags.
My daily staples in my work bag is my notebook, wallet, a 1L water bottle, accessories bag. The side pocket is big enough to house a small umbrella but not really a water bottle. Since it’s deep enough, I have my car keys and office access card in there too.
Another way to wear it is to button up the top handles and carry it as a handbag. I don’t prefer this way as I prefer the hands-free freedom.
As a new user, I am really loving this bag! I love how lightweight it is and roomy enough for everything. Although sometimes it clashes with my outfit, but I can’t really complain for the convenience it gives me. What’s a better than a backpack with daily walk, crossing roads, and lots of stash in the bag?
It’s a nice peach-salmon color, and the right size for a day bag, or an overnight. However, the downside, (other than the unpronounceable name) – is probably the same with all other backpacks – the lack of compartments. I would love a backpack with small compartments on the interior so there’s more room for small items!
As this is a nylon bag, it’s light and only weighs about 300g. I can see why it is so popular, it won’t kill your back just because it’s so light. And the vibrant colors are something hard to be missed. I can forsee that this bag will probably have a very long lifespan if it doesn’t go missing or get stolen.
I got mine from Shopbob, the trick to more saving is – wait for the 20% sales!
p/s: The badge of this bag is reflective too!
