I know most of you will ask why Backpack instead of roller luggage?
Well, to be honest, it depends on the person’s preference.

The weather wasn’t that favorable for us (hubby and me) to go on another short trip so instead, we were stuck at home. A few weeks after I’ve received the American Shield Backpack sent through the post.
Packed in a plastic cover which was pretty convenient to open instead of a box. I did try to open it slowly to make sure I won’t do any damage to the product.
And yes, the product delivered in a good condition without any scratch at all.
Granite 25 Backpack – Black&Brown
American Shield Backpack Granite 25, a fashion styled and casual backpack that allows you to take your tech outside. It is an elegant and timeless design – versatile, spacious, functional and multi-purpose backpack not just for travelers but for everyone.
Having a decent dimension L 16.6 x H 13 x D 7 in. (L 42 x H 33 x D 17 cm) I find it perfect for city trips or short vacation as a lightweight casual backpack.
The Granite 25 Backpack made with Oxford Fabric featuring its textile lining, Flap + press stud + drawstring opening.
The front pocket has a bunch of compartment and a key clip Magnetic strap closures with metal pin clips. A total of 8 Small inner pockets including the ones in the main compartment.
This small pocket is perfect for storing your smartphone or sunglasses. It’s actually larger than you’d expect for a small phone pocket. You could actually keep a lot more stuff in there including a wallet, keys, and earphones. It is similar to the organizer pocket.
Looking at the inner color of the backpack, it was actually pink. A huge shock for me, cause I didn’t expect it. And it added to a pile of reason to like it more.
My favorite part is the Padded and fleece lined 15″ laptop sleeve. I love how my MSI laptop fit in it. The American Shield Backpack utilizes a thick protective foam for your laptop.
It is over half an inch of foam between your back and the laptop and at the bottom of the laptop sleeve. It is an extra more or less 3 inches of foam so that your laptop isn’t against the floor and doesn’t absorb impact if you drop the backpack.
One good thing about this backpack is that it has 2 external side pockets which are literally can be water bottle pockets. One on each side. Or you can use it as a holder for you mini tripod as I did with mine.
These pockets are perfect for your reusable water bottle or a thermos for your coffee.
Finally, we’re into the Back portion of the American Shield Backpack Granite 25 with its out of the box idea making a strap pocket. A pocket built into the strap is becoming popular as well.
Which I find it very clever and super useful when it comes keeping a day-to-day thing that we use like keys, money, or other stuff.
There’s also a back pocket which is another plus point, an adjustable shoulder straps, and a top handle. I think having a top handle is a clever as well. Most Bag companies don’t take this into consideration, so when making the grab handle, they just use a regular strap of webbing.
A top handle seems useful to create more space in a train, subway, or bus taking off your backpack and holding it is the polite thing to do.
After looking into the pros and cons, I’m down into my final thoughts about this American Shield Backpack.
The features seem intuitive because the bag distorts in so many places. You have to keep moving your things around to find the ideal way of organizing your things.
I definitely love the aesthetics of the backpack. It’s color and elegance, but at the same time, it looks really fashionable, and casual which everyone can use it as an everyday bag.
Let’s take into its construction and utility. I absolutely adore the drawstring opening, (I’m not really a fan though). But I started to like it while using Granite 25.
Regarding its comfort, the American Shield Backpack is on top of this. It’s best used for short trips/city trips or short vacations like I always do. However, I will push its limit and use it for more days on travel and we will see the result after.
