Trying To Find The Right Backpack For Me

I am relatively picky about what type of day pack I am going to need for my stuff. All right, all right, it’s always my sweet iPad that I’m thinking about with these bags. What else am I going to watch my reality shows on? My iPhone isn’t going to cut it. I take that baby everywhere, so of course I need something that is going to get the job done, for sure. It needs to be protected and easy to reach.

But most importantly, I need it somewhere that isn’t obvious. I want to feel comfortable leaving this bag in a spot for a moment without someone knowing exactly where my precious iPad is residing. Compact is good but I also need something discreet.

What about your iPhone, you ask me? Of course I am considering that. Are you mad? A pouch to place that in would be amazing. I need something that will allow me to store away my phone safely but allow me access to it immediately. That can’t be too much to ask for.

I also want something that is relatively lightweight and comfortable. I’m carrying around some important electronics and paperwork, but I don’t need something that is a bit excessive on the weight side for what I am doing. If I am going to be walking around and about as much as I do, lighter is significantly better. I’m not going to be young forever, you know.

Now, amongst everything else I have mentioned, affordability is one of my biggest priorities here. Considering how low my needs are with this day pack, something relatively simple with an affordable price with room for additional things would be up my alley. When it comes time to buy something, I always research online first to read reviews – so that was what I did. I did a search for cool backpacks to see if I could find which ones would be the best for what I needed.

This was when I discovered the Osprey Porter 46 and went searching for reviews like this one on YouTube. The first thing that drew me in to this back is the variation between backpack and daypack. It’s a bit versatile with needs which is what I really want right now. When I am not using the back, I can conveniently wrap it up into a small ultra pouch and carry that around everywhere.

I fell in love with it right away. It’s a reasonably sized bag and doesn’t seem like it weighs that much. It comes in five different colors: black, new black, red, new red, and pink. It even has a sweet little design on the front. I really liked that, the different options for appearance. I can get a little creative with that.

There’s even a pack in pocket that is perfect for my iPad. It was just calling for my precious tablet. In the front, there’s a zipped pouch that I could put my iPhone when I am not using it. The entire backpack is well cushioned to protect my electronics. But it doesn’t stop there, it’s even waterproof. There are plenty of places I walk by that have fountains and water features, so avoiding that is a plus.

Lastly, because of convenience, bottle holders. This entire backpack will be both comfortable and convenient.
