The black Rebel Backpack from OGIO is a lightweight, affordable and well thought out pack for everyday business or education use. It's large enough to carry your 17" laptop as well as your iPad, tablet or eReader in their own separate sleeves. The main zippered storage compartment that holds the laptop is also sized to hold your folders and binders although they are separated by a panel.
The Rebel is deceptively large for a pack that comes across as compact. It's got a front zippered organized panel for your phone, pens or other small items. It even contains a zippered stash pocket that can hold a DVD. Two side stretch water bottle holders assure that you'll be hydrated while out for the day.
OGIO's iFOM (Integrated Foam Technology) panels add a significant level of protection to whatever is placed within the pack. After all, no matter how careful you are, at some point, someone or something bumps into you or, unfortunately, the pack gets dropped. The back panel is critical to the pack's design and is padded for comfort since the majority of any backpack rests against your back. The shoulder straps are contoured, adjustable and feature an adjustable sternum strap. Sternum straps are valuable since they help prevent the pack from shifting while in use. The top grab handle is for quick access moments such as when you want to get out the door without wearing the pack.
One of the most useful features of the Rebel is the dual front buckled utility straps that can be used to attach your jacket or sweater. No need to use up storage space within the bag. Weighing in at only 1.6 lb, the Rebel provides solutions to the user who wants a relatively inexpensive backpack for just his computer basics-and a few extras such as collateral material or documents. The Rebel is backed by OGIO's respectable limited lifetime warranty.
