Stylish Backpacks -> No. 1: Socko
Stylish Backpacks | Our winner is ‘Socko’ from Brinch, because we think it gave us the highest return on investment. For $40 (34 Euros) you will get a very comfy piece of travel luggage – good for hiking, biking, college or your daily trip to the office. The laptop compartment is padded with soft foam. An elastic velcro strap closure holds your computer in place. Colors: see our pic below. There are two sizes available:
55 x 40 x 19 cm (21.7 x 15.7 x 7.5 inch) and
48 x 39 x 18 cm (18.9 x 15.4 x 7.1 inch)
This is not a TECH backpack. It got neither solar nor USB, no backlights, charging stations or whatsoever. Nothing fancy about it. ‘Socko’ is just one of the more stylish backpacks around, at a fair price. That’s it. For tech backpacks we have a recommendation too. We’ll get to it. But first let’s work off the characteristics of this Brinch Socko backpack: comfortable strap design, multi-panel airflow shape provides extra padding for comfort and maximum back support, various pockets will carry your daily-used items, such as phone, pens, wallet, books, umbrella, water bottle etc. anti-tear, water-resistant, anti-scratch. quality nylon and lining for lasting durability.

Stylish Backpacks -> No. 2: Array Solar
Runner-up: ‘Array Solar’ Backpack from Voltaic Systems in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This got style too and it is loaded with tech. The company’s first generation solar backpack was the ‘Off-Grid 10 Watt’ model. It produced more gawking than electricity. But the guys from Voltaic Systems stepped up. Meet ‘Array Solar’. This second generation model touts 10 watts solar panel and powerbank (19,800mAh battery with 1-year warranty). Which means, you can charge a laptop. Select voltages at 12V, 16V or 19V. It also got USB ports to connect phones, tablets, digital cameras or whatever USBish stuff needs to be charged.
There is a 2-year warranty on the solar panels. They are designed to last and built using rugged fabric and strong solar cells that can withstand the rigors of everyday use. The solar panels are made from industry-leading monocrystalline cells. In direct sunlight a smartphone will be completely charged in 3.5 hours.
The Array backpack itself has 25L capacity with plenty of storage space. And it’s not ugly. Original price when buying directly from VoltaicSystems.com: $400. At Amazon you’ll get it for $300. But make sure you choose ‘Array’, don’t go for ‘Off-Grid’. You will regret it.
