Just got done playing with a couple of new backpacks from Mobile Edge. They’re being sold in cooperation with the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which “is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.” A generous 10% of each one sold goes to the charity itself, so let’s see what these souped-up tote bags are made of.
Boomer Esiason Foundation G-Pak
The smaller of the two bags (although by no means tiny) is called the G-Pak, named after Boomer’s son Gunnar. It’ll hold up to a 15.4″ laptop and has pockets for just about everything including a digital audio player pouch with a little rubber pass-through opening for a headphone cord. Mobile Edge pitches it as “the ideal backpack for students and others requiring a sturdy notebook carrying case that’s easy on the back and easy on the eyes.”
Mobile Edge Premium Backpack in Urban Camouflage
The Premium Backpack is a bit larger than the G-Pak, holding up to a 17? laptop and featuring two main compartments, front-side buckles, detachable cell phone holder, and a bunch of other cool enhancements with names like “SafetyCell”, “Cool-Mesh”, “Duraflex”, and “1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon”.
