All today we've been discussing items that are good for you!
I know a backpack might not seem to fit in that topic, but this one does!
This new Port Authority BG100 Xcape Computer Backpack not only is a great looking backpack, it has some great features that makes it the one you want your kids to use, or to use yourself!
Made of 600 Denier Polyester, this is a backpack MEANT to be used!
You have a front zipper compartment, for items you need quick access to. The top red quilted section is nicely sized to take any applique or embroidery you want to apply, to personalize your backpack! This one is in Miss Grace's dance team colors,so I'll be getting some ghillies and the dance team name on it, so she can use it for competitions and dance class. Note-due to it being polyester, you can't use iron ons!
Unlike other backpacks, the Xcape has not 1, but 2 full size mesh water pockets on the side. Anymore it seems like you're lucky to have 1 pocket, and it's small. With these pockets, she can carry plenty of water for long practices and all morning competitions! Plus each one has a D-Ring, for attaching your reusable water bottle!
When you open the top pocket, you get an organized panel, perfect for carrying pens, loose items and your phone or mp3 player! In fact, there is even a headphone port to string your headphones out, and to keep your player safe from the weather, or from being dropped!
Designed for a mobile lifestyle, the Xcape keeps your laptop protected with lots of dedicated space in its easy-entry padded laptop compartment! As you can see, it has double zippers too, so you can lock them together if you need to, for more security!
The laptop sleeve dimensions are 17.5"h x 12"w x 2"d, which means it fits most 17" laptops. It fit my new 15: 2 n 1 just fine, with room for a binder, with no problem. With it's passing, you know your laptop (or tablet) will be safe and secure! Which means this backpack is great for coeds too!
The XCape Backpack features a padded, channeled back for ventilation. As you can see, it is some serious padding too! Which means even if your backpack is heavy, it won't dig into your back. And it gives more padding for your laptop!
As you can see, it also features comfortable ergonomic padded straps. This is SO important,as it takes the weight and puts it on your hips and shoulders, making it even more comfortable to wear! The straps also feature 3 rolled holders, to add small items as well.
Lastly the Xcape features a sturdy grab handle, so you don't always have to grab it by the straps, and for handing on a hook easily!
The backpack can be machine washes in cold water (with non-chlorine bleach, when needed), and then tumbled dry on medium.Which makes it really easy to take care of too!
The Port Authority BG100 Xcape Computer Backpack comes in 6 color variations: red/grey/black as we received, black and grey, shock blue and black, dark charcoal grey and black, chili red and black, and royal blue/grey/black.
At under $25 at Apparel n Bags, it's a great backpack to order and give for Christmas, along with that new laptop for your high schoolers and coeds, or for yourself, if you are taking that New Year's resolution to go back to school!
