How many of your coworkers and colleagues carry a backpack? Past using them in college it’s a bit of a strange sight to see. However, people who commute on a regular basis and rely heavily on public transportation don’t usually mind toting one around. That is, so long as it gets them from place to place with all their stuff and doesn’t have them bumping into everyone.
If you would prefer a backpack to a messenger bag or rolling bag, then this Booq Cobra Squeeze might tickle your fancy. This is a grown-up backpack with a grown-up price to match. It appears small on the outside, but has enough room for your laptop, iPad, charging cables, mouse, pens, and has a dedicated phone pocket. It’s all lined with a soft material, and the placement of the pockets were designed to keep your gear safe even if it gets knocked or kisses the pavement. Of course, if you’re the type who likes to bring everything but the kitchen sink when you leave home, this may be a bit too simplistic for your tastes.
This is weatherproof, rugged, and is made of a good deal of recycled materials. It may still be using some new materials, but being partially recycled gives us some semblance of mental peace about contributing to the overall health of the environment. This is not a bag you buy lightly as it’s going to cost you $194.95 to get one, and it seems the only color options are gray and graphite (black).
