REVIEW: American Shield Backpack

Feb, 17, 2019

 When you love a minimalistic life (as we do) and favor not buying unnecessary things, once you do need something, you favor items high in quality that will last longer. My husband desperately needed a new backpack after his was too broken to fix. He searched for a backpack that was durable, with lots of compartments, that looked good and would accommodate his computer.

 He decided on a Granite 25 Backpack from American Shield Backpack. First of all, we like anything manufactured here in the USA (and it is). The Granite 25 backpack is fashionable and, since my husband uses it for work and attending meetings, that was important. Its also ergonomically designed — so, no matter your height, they  are easily adjustable to fit, which makes traveling or hiking both safe and comfortable. It has a smart design with many panels in the main compartment for pens, business cards, etc.; but the compartments are a bit too narrow for computer cables, which is a minus. The backpack is top loading, which is easy for loading a laptop, but makes access to its pockets harder. *The backpack closes with magnets on the part covering the top. They are solid, wont open if dropped, and make it look nice. Zippers would make access to the interior easier but probably would not make it look as distinctive.

 The Granite 25 backpack is both fashionable and stylish. Since it has a classic look, it will work for many years to come.
