Staff Picks: Backpacks Are Back | Cool Custom Backpacks
By Dean Schwartz: If you’ve seen an uptick in the number of coworkers and colleagues wearing backpacks, you’re not alone. And no, there isn’t an underground classroom that you’re being left out of, either. The fact of the matter is that the backpack – and not the briefcase – is the carry-all accessory of the day, and they’re getting better-suited for the office, too. AdAge recently reported that backpack sales for adults over age 18 were up 33% year over year, and women in particular are driving the trend.
Now that you just have to have one of your own, we’ve got a handful of great examples that you can customize for any purpose – think employees, sales, yourself, etc. And if that isn’t reason enough, consider this: all of the cool kids are doing it.
Rolling Computer Backpack: This is like the Cadillac of backpacks, or for more modern purposes, it’s like the Toyota Prius. For many of you, your backpack search will start and stop here – it’s made from 600D polyester, an ergonomic telescopic handle and easy glide wheels, so yes, it doubles as a carry-on bag. But inside, the backpack has a large compartment that’s fully padded to protect your laptop, while the front has zippered compartments for storage and another for an MP3 audio player, along with a headset port. Seriously, what else do you need? Customizations include silk screening, thermaprint and unimprinted options. And as always, SOBO is able to customize it to your liking.
Graphite Compu-Backpack: The easy way to introduce the graphite compu-backpack is to tell you that the ‘cool’ kids wear this one. It’s stylish, holds up to a 15 inch computer, has a dedicated iPad or tablet pocket, and room for other business essentials, including pens, business cards and even a water bottle. Get it in red, tan or charcoal, and let SOBO customize it in a laundry list of ways that will have everyone in your office turning heads.
Stormtech Waterproof Backpack: As South Floridians, we know first-hand how important it is to keep our valuables dry (yeah, I’m talking to you, summer!). This does the trick when it comes to protection. It’s 100% polyester, features multiple two-way zipper compartments and has breathable mesh throughout, meaning your valuables stay dry inside and the polyester shell repels water on the outside.
