I’ve some exciting, retail-oriented news for all business travelers out there – Samsill, one of the biggest and most trusted manufacturing corporations in the world, has made available the brand new Microsoft Traveler Laptop Backpack. It’s supposedly designed for “the casual business professional with a mobile lifestyle”, which more or less describes yours truly, so who better to review this backpack and determine if really delivers on its promise!
Good protection should always be prioritized over everything else when it comes to selecting a laptop bag. This is especially so if you intend to lug it around during your travels, when the probability of rough handling is higher and the laptop stored inside is more vulnerable to damage.
Putting that into consideration, I’m glad to report that the Traveler Laptop Backpack comes with a sufficiently-padded laptop sleeve that can accommodate notebook computers with 15.6’’ widescreens or smaller. The back and shoulder straps also come with air-flow padding that absorbs shock and reduces – if not eliminate entirely – harm caused by impact.
The bag even comes with an additional storage compartment with a fold-down bottom stabilizer panel. This panel is water-resistant, which means that you can store books, files and even clothes without worry that water will seep through and ruin your belongings on a rainy day.
Ample Storage Space
When I travel, I want the luxury of having all of my important things with me wherever I go, yet still have my hands free to reply messages on my iPhone or hold onto a fresh cup of Starbucks coffee. Thus, sufficient storage space is an important consideration when buying a laptop backpack.
Fortunately, the Traveler Laptop Backpack has nothing but storage space. It features three large storage compartments that are easily visible, but a more thorough inspection reveals hidden zipper pockets on the back and strap. They’re convenient for keeping your passport and wallet so that you won’t have to dig through your bag the next time you need any of these items. Other compartments include side mesh pockets for your bottled water, a drop pocket next to the handle for keys and coins and an accessory pocket in front for digital accessories, cards and pens.
One of the coolest features of the backpack is the scratch-free media pocket that can hold up to four CDs and a flash drive, so you won’t have to bring CD-ROMs in plastic cases that only add bulk to your hand-carry luggage.
Comfort is another significant variable to consider when purchasing a laptop backpack. The Traveler Laptop Backpack has this covered with its back and shoulder strap padding that cushions itself comfortably against your back and shoulders. The backpack also comes with a comfortable plastic handle for those who’d rather carry it like a briefcase.
But what’s the point of buying a bag that boasts the best features if you won’t want to be seen in public with it. Aesthetics do matter, and the Traveler Laptop Backpack boasts a design that’s pleasing to the eyes. Made from long-lasting polyester with decorative stitching and orange-colored detailing, this backpack is undeniably cooler than most of its average and typically-vapid counterparts.

Yeah, you can those blue Bic pens in bulk if you want—a boatload costs about as much as your morning coffee. And all pens are pretty much the same, right? Of course not. Cheapo pens are much more likely to leave ink smeared across your nose, bleeding through your pants pocket, or glopping up your page.
But even cheap pens were state-of-the-art at one time. Let’s take a look at how writing with ink has evolved over the centuries.
