The Right Computer Bag For Dads on the Go


The husband is a computer engineer working in the phone field and he is constantly dragging lots of things around whenever he is going to visit a client. There is his laptop of course, but that is just the tip of the iceberg as he usually carries phones, tools and other pieces of equipment …So as a result he needs a good bag to carry all he needs with him and he has a preference for backpacks, so for father’s day , I wanted to find a good computer bag for him.

The right bag for the job

While there are many computer bags out there, finding THE computer bag that worked for the husband took some researching as there where many features I was hoping to find.

The right computer bag had to be lightweight

Because he is always carrying all kinds of stuff that can make the bag a lot heavier, he needs a lightweight computer bag that is also of good quality to withstand heavy use and sometimes abuse the husband puts his bags through.

The right computer bag had to have lots of storage space

Because the husband needs to be able to get all his tools organized and have easy access to them, having different pockets for the tools and instruments was a must, not only to keep him organized, but also to help him save time by easily reaching all he needs at any given time.

The right computer bag had to look nice

Because image is important when you go to visit a client, the husband’s computer bag had to look nice as it would be part of his attire in a way… While it was not easy, I managed to find a great looking computer bag that had all of these features and then some.

He loved his Lexington computer backpack from Solo New York.

It also has front zippered pockets with organizer sections and key clip that is very handy, a discrete business lining, 2 zippered pockets on each side, a very welcomed padded back and back straps for added comfort.

Last but not least, it has one of my favorite features: the back panel slides over luggage handle which is great as often he need to bring a wheeled bag with him for extra equipment and also for when we travel!
