My Work Backpack Review

In this blog post I want to talk about work bags. I am a Surpervisor of an IT Project Managemebt Office. I have four project manager positions that I am responsible for overseeing their day to day work on projects. I carry several items back and forth betweem work and home every day. I have gone through numerous work bags over the years in an attempt to find a good fit for me. I’ve carried tote style bags, messenger style bags, even shoulder bags. This year I decided to give a backpack a try, and I love it! The backpack allows me to distribute the weight across by back on both shoulders.

In my search for the just the right backpack I did a lot of looking on Amazon and reading reviews and looking at reviewer photos. I did not want a backpack that would make me look like a college student, I am well past that phase in my life. I knew I wanted it to be black, and look both professional and cute at the same time.

I finally came across the Koser Laptop Backpack.

It comes in 2 sizes one that will fit a 14.1 inch laptop and one that will fit a 15.6 inch laptop. I opted for the smaller of the two sizes. It’s dimensions are 15.6″x10.45″x6.65″. This size works well for me and fits everything I want to carry to and form work with room to spare.

The backpack has two exterior side pockets and one sizable zip pocket on the front. The interior is a beautiful light blue color with two large slip pockets for laptops and electronics (or magazines and a planner) on the back inside. There are two smaller slip pockets, one of which has a mesh zipper pocket on it. This backpack also has a built in USB port on the outside that you can connect a power bank to on the inside for on the go charging.

Okay, now for my personal thoughts on this backpack. I love it! It holds a lot of items and has room to spare. I really like how it opens at the top like a doctors bag. This makes it so easy to load, view, and retrieve items in your bag.

Here is a run down of everything I carry daily in my bag:

  • My Erin Condren Life Planner in its planner folio
  • 1 Plastic pocket folder to protect loose papers
  • 1 ceramic bowl for my oatmeal I eat in the mornings
  • 1 Erin Condren zippered clutch that contains pens and pencils
  • 1 Travel tissue package
  • 1 Huggies Clutch and Clean travel wipes (these are good for everything!)
  • An extra charge cable for my iPhone
  • A small calculator
  • 2 small spiral notebooks for notes and lists
  • A small knitting project bag for lunch time knittingSometimes I will include my iPad mini and Bluetooth keyboard for working on blog post drafts during lunch. Also, on Mondays I usually will add in any snacks and oatmeal packets that I purchased while grocery shopping to put into my cubicle. I will also occasionally include a magazine to read as well depending on my mood that week.
  • As you can see everything fits nicely in this bag and there is still some room to add additional items. Right now I don’t really keep much in the side or exterior pockets at this time.
