Buying a business backpack: What should I look out for? 

When buying a business backpack, there are some important points you should pay attention to, such as: 

  • High-quality materials 

  • Design 

  • Functionality (e.g. laptop compartment) 

  • Comfort 

  • Storage space 

First of all, the quality of the material is crucial. A high-quality backpack should be made of durable and water-repellent material to protect your valuables from possible damage. Especially if you like cycling to work or going to the gym after work, you should opt for a robust mix of ripstop, recycled PET and vegan tech material, like our Banff All Black backpack. In addition to the materials, you should pay attention to an elegant design - after all, you always want to make a respectable impression in the office. A Kapten & Son business backpack impresses with its minimalist and timeless look. It goes perfectly with the professional look in the office or at business meetings, but also looks fresh and modern at the same time.  

Of course, functionality must not be neglected. Make sure that the backpack has enough compartments to organise all your work items - be it your laptop, documents or other important papers. A separate compartment for water bottles or an umbrella can also be an advantage. Most backpacks from Kapten & Son feature a padded laptop compartment and impress in terms of functionality thanks to practical outer pockets and smart interior organisation.

Another aspect is how comfortable the backpack is to wear. The shoulder straps should be padded and individually adjustable so that you're comfortable all day long - whether you're cycling to work or commuting on public transport. 

How big should my business backpack be?

The storage space should be based entirely on your needs: if you often work in external sales or are on business trips, run workshops for customers or like to do sport after work, you should look for backpacks with a capacity of 21 to 28 litres. If, on the other hand, you have short commutes and don't need anything else apart from your laptop and notebook, we recommend our backpack collections with 10 to 20 litres of storage space.
