I spent last week traveling for work and to visit friends and family, and I was so happy to have this awesome travel backpack from ECBC with me along the way! Check out these features that I love and make sure you enter the giveaway that I’m hosting with ECBC over on Instagram this week! Details on that are at the end of the post.
The ECBC Hercules Laptop Backpack is super high quality and has tons of compartments to hold everything you need. The fabric is water resistant, which I am so thankful for in Seattle where we often have drizzly days!
One of my favorite parts of this bag is the separate laptop compartment that is TSA friendly – just unzip the back compartment and lay it flat to go through security – no need to mess with taking it all the way out!
I love the two zippered water bottle holders on the sides – they’re perfect for holding my coffee mug on my way to work! I also used one of these pockets to hold my laptop charger when I was traveling – no more digging through to the bottom of my bag to find it!
And honestly another of my favorite parts is the accessories pocket on the top of the bag. It’s the perfect size for my sunglasses and my wireless mouse that I carry back and forth to work every day. I love being able to throw these in this little pocket and not have to worry about them getting crushed by something else in my bag.
The straps on this bag are very durable and also moisure-wicking, which I will be very glad for this summer when the weather heats up!
These self-repairing, water-sealing YKK zippers are pretty great, too!
I traveled through 5 airports in the last 10 days, and this bag helped me stay so organized. There’s plenty of room for all of your essentials, and the design is actually very slim, so I never feel like I’m carrying around a gigantic bag.
I also really appreciated the Portable Power Pack from ECBC – you never know when you might need an extra charge while traveling, and I definitely made use of this in all my time on planes and in airports this past week. Check out the details on this charger here – I like the LED lights this one has to indicate the level of charge.
All in all, I can’t recommend this bag enough – it is definitely my new favorite backpack, both for traveling and for everyday use at work!
