Earnest's Top 5 - Backpacks that won't break the bank (or your back)

By Earnest Collective
09 May 2019

Backpacks aren’t one-size-fits-all, we need a backpack for our different occasions. Be it heading to the gym or just carrying your laptop to work, different bags have different uses. With laptops getting thinner these days, they’re an expensive investment that we have to protect dearly. And while a laptop sleeve might do the trick, it will not be as protective as a backpack or laptop bag. Furthermore, a laptop isn’t the only thing you have to carry. Chargers, cables, cameras, batteries, clothes or shoes, you’ll definitely need more than just a laptop sleeve.

There are some important features of a backpack. Do you need it to be waterproof? Does it have to be comfortable? While some might not be battling the rain on a daily basis nor lugging heavy stuff in their backpacks, they might be able to save some money on more affordable options.

It is not uncommon to splurge on a backpack only for it to break in a matter of weeks. Whether the weight of your items or an unexpected downpour, nothing’s worse than having your items fall out of your bag unknowingly due to a hole in your bag.

Like a book, you can never judge a bag by its looks. The style of the backpack might be important, but the features and internal compartment are equally important as well, something often overlooked by many when purchasing their backpacks.

We have selected 5 backpacks that might be suitable for you so that the next time you head out of your house, you’ll look good, feel good and not worry about having things fall out of your bags again!
