Talk about Chanel vibes - but for a whole lot less! This is a multi-function laptop backpack to take note of. The main compartment has separated compartments and pockets which can provide roomy space for your laptop (15.6inch) as well as your tablet, power bank, A4 files, wallet, and even clothes. It features an elastic pocket at each side so you can hold your umbrella or your water bottle. What's more, there's also a USB charging port extended on the side of the backpack and built-in a charging cable inside.
An Amazon five-star review said: "I absolutely adore this bag! My previous backpack was getting a bit small for the amount of things I was carrying around and I'm so pleased I bought this one. I got it when the price was lower but honestly feel it's worth the £30 price too. It's very much a Mary Poppins bag; it looks beautiful and seems to fit a huge amount in, it even dwarfs my 2L water bottle!"
Talk about functionality! This can be worn as a backpack, handbag or a shoulder bag. The multi-wear laptop bag is made with a faux leather exterior and a soft velvet padded lining to ensure your laptop stays safe whilst on-the-go. With space inside for your laptop (up to 15 inch), your phone, multiple pens, cables as well as a large zipped pocket, this bag is not only stylish but super practical. At the front there is a large zipped pocket for your charger, additional cables and accessories and a smaller zipped compartment at the back.

The reviews are all really positive, with one writing: "Could not love this backpack more! I travel weekly and this backpack securely rides on top of my carry one. My laptop slides in and out of the back pocket. The big pocket can actually fit my smaller purse, plus all the things. The front pocket is great for your phone, earbuds etc. great for quick access. Couldn’t recommend this more."

The bag is of good quality and feels really nice. The front of the bag is leather and the base of the bag is cloth. It's made really well and looks just as good as the marketing photos, if not better!
"I have a HP Envy 360 which is 15.6" and fits in with loads of spare room. Nice big front pocket for phone, charging lead, mouse etc.The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that it isn't as thick padded as I'd hoped. The description advises its 'thick' but I'd disagree. I think it'll be sufficiently protective but with 2 4-year-olds I have also put the laptop inside a neoprene sleeve for added protection. It's a lively looking fully functional bag that gets attention."
