Times are changing for business professionals. Gone are the days when the standard dress code means a suit and briefcase. This new tribe seeks something more versatile — and comfortable — for their workday commute.
Enter the business backpack.
The business backpack provides a fresh alternative to the one-armed carry of the briefcases, computer bags, and messenger bags. It gives professionals space to fit more than a laptop — because work-life balance isn’t just a catchphrase these days. After the 9-to-5 grind, people are logging off their computers, and logging in time at the gym or happy hour with colleagues and friends. Business backpacks provide the space necessary to accommodate wardrobe changes for hobbies, hangouts and more.
But it’s not just about more room — business backpacks are simply more comfortable to carry. With a business backpack, the weight is evenly distributed across your shoulders and back, relieving the stiff neck and back pain often associated with one-sided carry bags. How can you achieve work-life balance if your body is constantly out of balance from lugging around a bag on one side?
Skeptical of the business backpack trend? Look no further than the Wall Street Journal, which recently published a full front page feature story about it. According to the piece, “Sales of that segment increased 5% to $864 million between August 2016 and this past August, representing 48% of the entire U.S. backpack market.”
I know what you’re thinking – “How does a backpack say ‘professional’ instead of ‘first day of school?’”
