[Review] Incase continues their tradition of great quality products with the Compact Backpack.

image

 

 

Welcome to the latest in my review series. This time I’m taking on the new Incase Compact Backpack, putting it through my rugged testing and reporting back to you on my findings.

 

I really like the company Incase, I've reviewed their products in the past and have felt like they always make quality merchandise. So I was looking forward to trying out the latest Incase iDevice carrier, simply called the Compact Backpack.

 

 

This backpack definitely leans more towards the urban adventurer than the wilderness explorer (I'll also be reviewing some of the better rugged, heavier duty iDevice carrier bags too in the coming weeks so stay tuned.) but for the price and for the quality of craftsmanship for the student, business person or teacher to whom it's targeted, this pack is hard to beat!

Ah... Now that university exams are over I can resume my blogging. For those that want to know... Yes, I did quite well on the three exams I wrote - all "A"s and two IT certifications achieved (CompTIA A+ & CIW Web Foundations Associate) out of 18 that I have to complete for my Bachelor of Information Technology (Software) degree program at Western Governors University.
