My first (and ultimately only) college backpack was an Ogio and, lo these ten years later, it’s still going strong. In fact, it’s still in pretty much brand new condition. Which is to say that the company makes damn sturdy products.
Among their latest – the Newt 15″ Laptop Backpack. It’s a step up in every way from the traditional, nylon “elementary school kid” backpack – a stylish design that I’d call “sleek urban minimalist”.
Among its myriad features: the ability to pack (wait for it …) almost any 15″ laptop; integrated foam panels to keep your electronics and other valuables protected; a padded iPad/tablet/e-reader sleeve in the main compartment; a thick, padded back panel and dual density foam shoulder straps for extra comfort; a padded neoprene grab handle on top; and an array of various zippered and mesh pouches to both organize and keep all of essential your kit within easy reach.
Pricing & Availability
Available now in three colors (Black, Stockade, or Static) for $100 USD directly from Ogio.
Disclosure: Vagabondish received one complimentary Newt 15" backpack from Ogio in advance of this post.
