“He who would travel happily must travel light.” - Antoine de St. Exupery, author of The Little Prince.
Sometimes, one needs a backback. At other times a briefcase is required. Then there are times when only a duffel bag will do. But you don’t have the money or the space for three bags. No problem. Meet the All-Star Hybrid Backpack by Solo.
In case you don’t know, Solo makes stylish, affordable bags for all sorts of people and lifestyles. Based in New York City, their goal is “to keep you moving in style with cool, thoughtfully-designed bags and tablet cases.”
What do you look for in a bag? For me, it should be versatile, easily portable, attractive, light but strong, and have many compartments. Then I came across the All-Star Hybrid Backpack. As someone who loves value deals, I immediately liked the sound of a hybrid bag and decided to put it to the test. So far, I’ve used it for clothes, my laptop, my camera equipment, and my documents, as well as a combination of these. This is how it measured up.
If you are not in South Africa, you can purchase the bag here.
