Back to campus with the lightweight and rugged Altitude Backpack from Solo

Sponsored postHave a college student that is heading back to campus this year? If so, you’re going to want to listen up because I think I found the best backpack ever for college living. Hey, even if you’re not buying for college and instead just want a super cool daypack, light hiking pack, or commuter backpack, you’re going to want to remember this bag.

This beauty is the Solo Altitude Backpack from their Black Ops Collection.

Don’t you hate it when you get a bag you plan to load up with stuff only to find that it’s already heavy and you haven’t added a single item? I’ve been duped many times in the past so when I first saw this bag with its multitude of pockets and metal findings, I had already incorrectly assumed it was too heavy for my needs.

Since anything designed to carry tablets, laptops, cameras, smartphones and more requires some sort of divided interior and pocket system, I had already resigned myself to the idea of carrying a bag that weighed a ton empty just to fit my needs.  Solo backpack pouchBecause my needs are a TON of pockets, slots, sleeves, and more to keep myself organized. Really, the more pockets it has, the more I love it. And this has more pockets than I could have ever imagined.

I can now easily hold my laptop in the fully padded 17.3″ laptop compartment of the Altitude backpack, pop my tablet into the tablet sleeve, I can put my bulky DSLR in the padded interior, and then I can utilize the pockets for all the accessories and personal items I will need for the entire day out.

Honestly, it would be my first pick off the shelves on looks alone, and then I would notice all the pockets, the roomy interior, the lightweight fabric, and all the organization built right into the bag and it would be no contest which bag would come home with me.

Also cosmetic, but to me a really nice addition is the military-grade Velcro that you can use to attach patches – including the cool New York patch that it comes with.

You can also find a huge range of all sorts of Solo backpacks for whatever your needs – whether it’s grade school, college, for business, or for recreational use, Solo has you covered.
