I was fortunate enough to get this backpack for free, but if I was on a budget, I probably wouldn’t spend $100 on this. But if spending money on a backpack is worth it for you, then go ahead. If you need help staying organized, this thing is GREAT.
We had different requirements for each category, but across our testing, we sought bags that were comfortable, good-looking, durable, and able to hold a 13-inch laptop. The zippered middle pocket is roomy enough for a change of clothes, shoes, and a toiletry kit, which means you don’t have to push those items out of the way to get to your laptop. The other organized pockets on the front of the bag allow you easy access to pens, business cards, adapters, and cables, which would otherwise roll around in the main compartment. You’ll love this backpack if you’re constantly on the move and need a bag large enough to fit the likes of a laptop, miscellaneous electronic accessories, and smaller items like notebooks and pens. Of course, with the extra pockets, you’re able to fit more, but this backpack is really designed to store the essentials and keep clutter to a minimum. This attractive bag has foldaway shoulder straps which connect to the bottom of the bag.
In this review, we will take a quick look at 2 other of their products – the Nomatic Backpack, Nomatic Travel Pack, and Nomatic Travel Bag. Whilst they share some similarities – aside from their confusingly similar names – they are meant for very different types of travelers. Firstly, we don’t mind telling you that the Nomatic Travel Bagis one of the best bags on the market today…. BUT – we only recommend this bag for certain types of travelers. The Nomatic Travel Bag is ideal for some travelers but NOT ideal for others. The bottom line is this backpack is best for those looking for a backpack to load up and carry around every day.
It will be great for when I go on business trips and when travelling around the city. More impressively, it’s an eco-groovy backpack with features such as a luggage sleeve, carry-on size, deceptive roomy capacity in a minimalistic design. In a world that celebrates diversity and uniqueness , it seems almost incomprehensible to source a single product that can stretch across the divide of lifestyle, demographics and life stage.

On paper, this bag meets airline carry on rules however, I had to remove and leave the day bag at home for an EasyJet flight as the case itself was hitting their maximum when packed for a city break . The biggest feature difference is that the Meridian has a detachable day bag which can hold a 15” laptop. It has a breathable back, ideal for clammy climates.
But we found that its tall height made it uncomfortable. Aer backs up their looks with a tough waterproof exterior, tons of organizational features, and a lifetime warranty. The Rains bag offers smart organization and a petite size, both important factors for a commute. It has a zippered section to securely hold your phone and transit pass, and its small, flat shape means it’s much less likely to knock into someone when you’re sprinting to catch a train.
