As a college senior entering his final semester en route to a 6-year Bachelor’s Degree (not by design, but by indecision and poor scheduling) I consider myself qualified in the subject of backpacks. Of course, I do not wish to label myself as strictly a ‘school backpacker’. In fact, as an Eagle Boy Scout I was no stranger to the damp hikes of the Washington wilderness with my sturdy external frame hiking pack. I have since traveled the world for work with my protective laptop backpack, and I now frequent the Rocky Mountains with my trusty mountain bike and hydration pack.

Adjust the hip belt correctly. Your pack should rest right above your hip bones. For smaller packs the laptop backpack hipbelt serves as a bounce reducer. It helps keep the pack comfortably in place. For larger packs, the hip belt also helps distribute the weight load more evenly.

There are many laptop bag styles. Some of the most popular are rolling laptop cases, laptop backpacks and laptop messenger bags. The market has a wide selection of bags and this can be a little overwhelming to some people. The various designs can be confusing and sometimes you just want to buy all of them.

Selecting the ideal bag can also help defend you from thieving. Criminals like to victimize unwitting backpackers. Choose a secure travel pack to derail theft.

To limit taxing the back muscles, keep the heavier books towards the back of the pack. This approach distributes the weight along the strongest part of the back that can best support Travel Backpacks weight.

Shoulder Strap Pocket: These are typically an added accessory. They connect to your shoulder strap and may carry things which need immediate access. Some include a slot for earphone (ear bud) cable access.

Another design that combines style and function is the High Sierra Laptop Wheel Bag, the red color just oozes funkiness and the bag itself can accommodate a 17″ laptop with extra compartments for your own use.
