One of my biggest dilemmas when traveling is how to pack all of my gadgets and gizmos securely. I have a pretty standard laptop backpack now and it does the job, but there have been times when I wished I had something that would protect everything a little bit more. Then, a few weeks ago I got an email from JetPens asking if I would be interested in reviewing a new product to their lineup.
They sent me a Nomadic CB-01 Wise-Walker Multi Compartment Day Pack. The first thing I noticed about the pack when I opened it was how small it really is. The pictures tend to portray it as a normal size backpack, when in fact it is much smaller. Where it makes up for this is the amount of pockets the bag has. There are 9 total pockets, with some having more than one compartment. All of the pockets are padded for added protection to what you are carrying. I was able to place my 13″ MacBook Pro in the main pocket with a snug fit or my iPad depending on where I was going and what I would be doing.
The Nomadic is made up of “rip-stop” material:
Material: The name for this material is “rip stop”, which means it doesn’t rip. The material is the same one that is used for parachutes, which is light and strong. The surface has a water proof treatment and Polyurethane processing on the back side, making the bag waterproof.
The quality of the material in apparent in the backpack, it is sturdy, clean, and comfortable. I like this backpack and have replaced my daily pack with this one. I would recommend it to those of you who are in the market for a new backpack. The pricing is great for the quality of bag, coming in at $88.00. There are three different color options; gray, black, and navy. Full picture gallery below.
