In the Cleveland, Ohio area, we have some really brutal winters. (-40 wind chills, anyone? 2 feet of snow in 2 days? Anyone?) So when Puxatawny Phil indicated we're in for an early spring, I couldn't help but get my hopes up, if only a little bit.
While our winters are perilous and gloomy, Ohio springs and summers are gorgeous. One thing I love doing is heading out to the nature trails or to the Cleveland Metroparks to explore with my family. Whether it's a quick hike to the Mary Campbell Cave at the Gorge, a trip to the Virginia Kendall Ledges, or a picnic lunch at Squire's Castle, we're always on the go.
I can't wait to go on our next adventure, but this time with my brand new Granite 25 Backpack from the awesome folks at AMERICAN SHIELD. They specialize in high quality, luxurious fashion backpacks that are as stylish as they are functional. These are rugged yet elegant, and suitable for even the most outdoorsy among us.
I received this absolutely gorgeous Granite 25 series women's backpack in Green to check out for myself.
The first thing I noticed when it arrived was the unparalleled quality of this backpack. Seriously, this is incredibly well made. The canvas material is heavy and rugged, the leather straps soft and supple, yet strong, and the interior is lined with a soft, silky material.
There are plenty of pockets for all of your gear, and even a padded pocket for your laptop or tablet.
Here are the detailed specs for this beauty :
- L 16.6 x H 13 x D 7 in (L 42 x H 33 x D 17 cm)
- Textile lining
- Flap + press stud + drawstring opening
- Inner 15" laptop compartment
- 8 Small inner pockets
- 1 Front pocket
- 2 external side pockets
- 1 Back pocket
- 1 Strap pocket
- Adjustable shoulder straps
- Top handle
Yep, they thought of it all.
I decided to wear my Granite 25 backpack around the house, just to get a feel for it. I am pleased to say that, even loaded up with random things to give it some weight, this backpack remained comfortable to wear throughout the day.
We even packed up some snacks and took the kids for a quick trip to the playground, since the snow melted and Elsa calmed down for a minute.
I have to say, I'm absolutely in love with this backpack. Its classic, rugged design is timeless, and the durability ensures it will last for years and years to come. I especially love all the pockets, which allow me to remain organized and prepared no matter where our adventures may take us.
If you're in the market for stylish backpacks for women or men, definitely check out what AMERICAN SHIELD has to offer. I think you'll be as delighted as I was by the simple luxury these classic daypacks offer.
