Mobile Edge Express Backpack (Eco-Friendly, Green Dots) Review by Julianna Foster

When I first received the Express Backpack, from Mobile Edge, I was super excited. It is a cute muted green color, with a white and pink polka dot design. I immediately noticed that the fabric was extremely sturdy and of very good quality, and it is eco-friendly to boot! The seams are secure and tightly woven. The zippers also are easy to use, work well, and they never jam up.

The amount of space I have in the bag is exactly what I have been looking for. There are tons of pockets and places to put items or accessories. While it was originally “designed to comfortably carry your computer and give you the extra room that you need for your books, laptop and accessories,” and there’s definitely enough room for a 16” laptop inside, I wanted to use it for the gym. I take Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and my whole heavy Gi uniform fits into it alongside my other gym equipment. There are plenty of pockets for everything as well.

I am someone who likes to always have first aid kits and extra toiletries in my bags to be ready for any emergency. I’ve been able to keep everything I needed in this one bag. It’s really useful also, because it has a mesh pocket made on one of the shoulder straps. The little pocket is great for a phone, candy bar, or anything else that is smaller in size and needs to be easily accessed.

The black straps are of a strong, light material that is comfortable, and they have padding for your shoulders too. The back of the backpack also has padding that provides further comfort for long term use. Its squishy and soft, but thick enough for support. Over all I just adore this bag! I’d definitely recommend this to a friend or anyone looking for a strong, fashionable, and durable bag. The dimensions are 20" x 16" x 8.5" and the price is $59.99. It’s worth every penny!
