Aside from shoes, another important investment to consider before your children go back to school is a backpack for your child. I have recently purchased the Samsonite Luggage VizAir Laptop backpack after reading the review here. I have to say that this bag is brilliant, not only is it very functional but it looks great too.
It supports laptops up to 15.6 inches which is great for either my husband’s MacBoook Pro or my Chromebook. There is some extensive padding for the laptop compartment ensuring your investment is held safe and secure. I have to say this backpack would have been perfect for when I was a college student. Aside from the padded laptop compartment, it also has great padding on the bottom using the VizAir air bumpers to protect against any drops to the ground. This is the same technology used in sneakers, and it really works to absorb the shock, I haven’t tested it extensively but I have read reviews in which people have with success.
This bag is also very comfortable to wear, it has some nice firm padding on the back and shoulder straps with good weight distribution. In terms of pockets there are so many that maybe you won’t know what to do with them. There is a deep pocket which is designed to store items such as a mobile phone, mp3 player, headphones, pens etc. The middle compartment is very big and perfect for storing books and notepads or anything else which is quite bulky. There is also a special pocket for papers to keep them separate from everything else and organized. On either side of the outside are side pockets which are perfect to store a couple of water bottles.
In summary the Samsonite Luggage Vizair is definitely my kind of backpack and a prefect choice for school and college students. It protects your child’s laptop when they forget about it, no more throwing it into a normal backpack and being careless. It is also very difficult to step on this backpack and damage the laptop since it stands up by itself.
Samsonite Sharon Laptop Backpack
Now, moving onto the Samsonite Sharon Laptop Backpack, this baby is far less padded than the VizAir but still offers decent protection for a 15.6 inch laptop. My husband prefers this backpack, it is a bit more sleek and basic with a more subtle design which is better for the office. At the top of the bag is a handle to carry it by your side which is good for a professional, as you will look less like a schoolkid when heading into work.
As far as storage goes, there is a very big middle compartment with an extra pocket inside for more storage. The front pocket is great for items like mobile phones, mp3 players, keys and other accessories.
In summary, both of these backpacks are very high quality and are made to last a long time. I am very happy with the purchase of both of these bags. If you want to protect your laptop then you can’t go wrong with the these laptop backpacks from Samsonite.
