Backpacks: Not just for Kids

December 30, 2014   

When I was still going to school, a lot of us use backpacks to carry our books. Though the same bags, we will have different designs or colors to suit our personalities or favorite cartoon character at that time. I remember, a friend of mine has her Barbie backpack to house all her books. Another one has a canvas backpack in blue that has a lot of snacks ready for our recess.

I had mine in black. This is so it does not get dirty easily and in case I forgot to close my pens, the leak would not really show unless it was a red pen but most likely, it will not happen because I never owned one before!

Fast forward to today, in our office, I have observed that most of my guy workmates are carrying canvas backpacks too. I think this is now what you can consider a “man bag” of the semi-corporate world. Well, that is if you are not an executive or CEO of the company.

Backpacks have now added another clientele up their sleeve and the hubby is beginning to give hints about his tattered messenger bag to replace it with a canvas backpack. I think we have bought it about three years ago and I have to admit that it is close to retiring. The straps have been re-stitched by yours truly for a few times already and I think I have patched a section of his bag.

I browsed online and found a few nice canvas backpacks in Ebay.Most of the bags that I fancy are in black or green color. Since it’s a backpack, you would want to have a lot of pockets to store stuff separately, or what my husband says.

He said that backpacks could make you look organized without making that much of an effort and this is all thanks to its pockets. From what I remember when I was in school, our backpacks would usually have the main body with a second storage in front then two pockets on the side. I would store all my pens on the second storage and my little stuff given to me by my classmates when we were about to leave school, I keep them on my side pockets.

An Asos canvas backpack had a different style. It has the main body and on the second storage, it was split into two and it did not have side pockets. The bag is in beige color. The bag seems functional but I don’t think it will work for my husband.

Another backpack that caught my eye is Casuel. According to, this is a college backpack but I think ‘men at work’ can also use this. The bag is a little bit taller than the other backpacks that I have seen. It has the complete pockets that I have been looking for.

I am also looking at this Resultly. Click here to see the canvas backpack search For more options on what to get for him. I hope the husband approves the selection that I have made.
