Knomo Hanson Laptop Backpack Review

Friday, 30 June 2017

I'm a bit of a bag collector but only tend to invest in good quality bags that will stand the test of time. I've had a few staple bags over the past few years that do their job but aren't necessarily stylish. Knomo is trying to change this with their fashion-forward design and thinking to kit out the tech savvy. They've asked me to showcase how I'd implement one of their bags in my life, so I decided to go for the Knomo Hanson Laptop Backpack (£179.99)* which is part of their Brompton collection. The company was founded in 2004 in London and wanted to "create perfect accessories that are beautiful on the outside and smart on the inside". Their name comes from combining knowledge and mobility and you can see that is reflected in their products to help you organise your life.

The first way I'd style the Knomo would be with a more formal outfit which makes it perfect to use for work. What I'm wearing to style this:

- Jack Reid White Tailored Shirt
- Jack Reid Black Suit Trousers
- Burton Burgundy Patterned Tie

Having a padded laptop slot reassures me that it will be kept safe and protected when using this bag. I'm definitely going to find the different pocket slots useful as I tend to have a number of different things in my current work bag such as pens and notepads that just end up rattling around at the bottom. One of the issues is trying to find my car keys at the end of the day, which will be helped by the detachable key chain in the front pocket.

The Hanson is designed with the city dweller in mind, that want a bag that can be used every day. I decided to go for this bag as it's a smart and stylish bag that I can use for a number of different situations. The main part of the bag has a padded section which fits up to a 15" laptop as well as a tablet section to keep your devices safely stored away. A front pocket contains a number of sections to store your smaller items and includes RFID blocking to protect your cards or passport from being cloned. I love how much functionality they have packed into this bag while maintaining the classic look. The detailing on this bag is so impressive and it gives it a real quality feel to it that I'm sure will last for many years. I think the different sections in this bag give flexibility for a number of uses. 

The second way I would style this Hanson bag is a more casual look for use when going out when I'm not at work and would be heading out for the day to town or going on a city break. What I'm wearing to style this: 

- Farah Scotch & Soda Navy T-Shirt
- Burton Black Slim Fit Jeans
- Nike Stefan Janoski SB Zoom Trainers in Navy

I can see myself as using this for a variety of situations depending on what I'm doing in the day. Using this for packing my camera safely away will come in useful while having enough space in the main compartment for any spare clothes I want to take out with me. The front pocket will be great for storing my wallet and phone so that I don't have to route through the rest of the bag. Knomo has really hit the nail on the head with this bag as it's such as simple design combined with the level of detailing will make it suitable to wear with anything and let you bring along all your essentials.
