The search is over, I have found THE perfect backpack. The Targus Newport Navy Backpack is the ultimate travel, laptop and every day bag that will suit any lifestyle. Whether you are a busy working mother, a student or a stay-at-home mum who craves a little luxury when out and about.
Since becoming a mum I thought my days of pretty handbags and stylish backpacks were over, I was doomed to a life of chunky unattractive Changing Bags to accommodate nappies, wipes, snack, clothes and all the other parent paraphernalia that goes along with having children. Yes, I did buy a changing bag when the children were little but I never compromised on style, I’ve loved handbags my whole life and I wasn’t about to give up that just because my babies came along.
I did struggle with days out, I would pack everything in a shoulder bag which would break my back by the end of the day. I couldn’t find a sturdy, well fitting and attractive backpack – until now that is.
The Targus Newport Backpack is like the new and modern Mary Poppins bag of dreams for parents. It has 2 main dedicated compartments for a laptop or tablet which is just a god send if you have one or more children that need entertaining on outings. You can just pop their tablets into your bag knowing they are safely contained. You can also use these compartments for a change of clothes, nappies and the all ever important wet wipes – I literally cannot go anywhere without these.
It is a really compact backpack that is lightweight. Obviously this bag is not aimed at mums in general it is a slick, professional looking backpack with all the perks of space and an extremely well thought out layout. You will never lose anything in this bag as there are small pockets inside and zipped pockets on the outside making it easy to locate items. I think this bag would stand the test of time and it will age well.
I will be taking this backpack on holiday with me soon, I’ll use it as my hand luggage to store all of our electrical items as well as snacks, drinks and entertainment for the children on the flight. It is surprising how much you can store in the backpack without it looking or feeling bulky.
This would make an ideal Mother’s Day present and is a great investment piece.
