The Backpack That Fits My Life – Solo Everday Max Backpack Review

A backpack that finally fits my 6-foot 4-inches spatial needs every day – Solo Everyday Max Backpack Review

Solo Everyday Max Backpack Review

I’m a big guy, I take up more space. I’m 6′ 4″ and generally wear XXL everything and have size 13 shoes. My clothing alone takes up a lot of space. Where some people can pack a week’s worth of clothes in a bag, I’m lucky if my jacket fits. It’s not the worse problem to have, and being able to reach the top shelf just about everywhere is a more than worthy compensation, but finding gear that fits my spacial requirements is often difficult. There are many examples for this, but let’s talk about bags and backpacks. My free duffle bag from BodyBuilding.com was great, but immediately after putting in a change of clothes, I knew this bag was not gonna last. It looked like an overfilled water balloon. In there were only: my towel, my face towel, shirt, a light hoodie, compression underwear, and basketball shorts; your standard workout gear. It went about a week before the bag started to rip apart. It still works, but it looks raggedy.

This does not include other stuff I may need throughout the day, like my laptop, a notepad, then the accessories I may want to be more efficient, like a mouse or tablet. Thing is, I have a lot of things to do and need to bring a lot of stuff to do it. So, I usually have my duffle bag for my gym clothes and my backpack for my tech/business stuff. But, not anymore!

Not long ago I wrote about Solo’s new line of backpacks. I got one, so let me go ahead and provide my Solo Everyday Max Backpack Review.

First of all, it does not look very big. Which in this case, is a good thing. It doesn’t look like a big bulky bag that you take to go out and survive in the wilderness. It’s very sleek, moderately colored, but accented with a subtle flare that makes it pretty stylish; yellow straps on a dark colored bag. It looks like a regular sized bag and takes up about as much space as a normal backpack would take. But it fits my life inside of it!

The expert design of the Solo Everyday Max Backpack allows it to fit 17.3″ Laptops, which is what I prefer since it has the num pad. It has a tablet pocket, separate shoe compartment that fits my 13’s, and pockets, pockets everywhere! I believe there are 10 different pockets total. These pockets not only store your different items but they allow you to organize them! There’s also one large compartment, with about 3 pockets within it, that has two access points for whether the backpack is laid down or standing up.

I was able to fit my laptop, its charger, my tablet, my notepad, pen, sharpie, deodorant, shampoo, comb, lock, gym gear, shoes, business card holder, glasses and case, and my mousepad, with room to spare. I should probably throw in my portable charger and charging cables… Even with all of that, it doesn’t look like it’s ready to burst. If planned, I think I could easily pack a nice long weekend adventure into that bag, or maybe a good convention survival kit.

My Solo Everyday Max Backpack review is nothing but high praise. The only downside I can think of is that there aren’t a selection of colors to choose from when picking yours. Oh, I almost forgot my favorite part. Aside from being able to fit my needs, allow for organizing, and efficient access to all my stuff, the Velocity Backpack has four handles! Each handle is located on one side of the back edge of the backpack, allowing you to pick it up from any side. This gives you the option of not only wearing it like a backpack, with additional chest strap for better ergonomic support, but you can pick it up from any side for a quick pick up and go. This sounds kind of mundane, but it’s one of those features that you don’t really realize is one of the most amazing things ever thought up. Kind of like a cup holder. Better yet, the loose change holder.

I cannot truly express how awed I am with the Everyday Max Backpack. I’ve had some nice bags, but none that were really perfectly designed to match multiple needs. I have a camera bag, a gym bag, a laptop backpack, even a messenger bag I use for compact mobile video journalism. But never had a bag that fit so much stuff, and with distinct purpose. I’ve tossed a bunch of stuff in free giant Hasbro Bag at Comic-Con, only to have it all shift around and alternately tire out my arms. Check out the video to see me stuff my daily life into the bag. My Solo Everyday Max Backpack Review gets a 5/5!
