I was never a mini backpack kind of gal even back in the mid-90's when I was in college. Nowdays the trend is a welcome blessing for my tired shoulders. I recently purchased the Knomo London Mini Beauchamp 10" Backpack ($159 on Amazon). I really wanted a small backpack that was perfect to hold a little more than just the essentials and was organized. This is the first backpack I actually really love. I'm a snob when it comes to bags but I just love the stylish look and all the cool pockets inside. It's perfect to hold a tablet, book, small water bottle and more. I had never heard of Knomo but they have lots of stylish tech bags with organization inside for both men and women. The quality is great and once you get your backpack you can register your unique bag code on the Knomo website. If you lose your bag, whoever finds it can contact Knomo and the company will send your bag back to you for free.
I've been wearing it around town for errands but I am really looking forward to using it during spring break and summer with Chloe. It's the perfect hands free way to hang out with my girl and just not have to worry about messing up one of my luxury bags. I also think it has done wonders fro my posture!
I love the whole organizing pockets this backpack has. There's 2 slip pockets you can see perfect for a tablet, book, notebook and more. On the opposite inside is actually a small zipper so you can put things there that you want more secure. The two zippers on the outside of the backpack actually open up to be one larger pocket. I use that front pocket for my kleenex and lipstick and hold my keys on the inside small zipper pocket. I love the gray linen which hasn't gotten dirty for me yet and just feels perfect for spring and summer.
I purchased the Knomo mini backpack from a 3rd party seller on Amazon who had such great service! It was free shipping and since they were located in Illinois, I wasn't charged sales tax either. They packed the backpack wonderfully and it was stuffed to keep its shape. They have the bag in five colors including the gray linen color that I picked. This bag is just so light and carefree – it's the perfect mini backpack for any gal on the go.
If you want to go more luxe, just launched is a new Knomo Mini Beaux Small Leather Backpack ($250) in black, tan and light blue. Just an option if you want to take it up a notch!
