JanSport Driver 8 Wheeled Backpack

JanSport Driver Wheeled Backpack – Wheeled backpack with padded laptop compartment

It is no secret that I am not a fan of rolling backpacks. I think they are a bit lazy and unnecessary for most people. That said, if you must use a rolling backpack, the JanSport Driver Wheeled Backpack is about as good as they come. In all actuality, the JanSport Driver Wheeled Backpack is just a beefed up version of your basic school backpack, which makes it great for just about any kind of urban travel.

The real selling point of the JanSport Driver Wheeled Bookpack is probably all the organization it has to offer. This bag is not just full of pockets, but offers plenty of smaller and well thought out pockets to help keep your items separated and easy to find. The JanSport Driver Wheeled Bookpack also has a number of internal organization features like built in organizers, key rings, and more to keep all your small items in place during transit.

Aside from small organization pockets, the JanSport Driver Wheeled Backpack has plenty of larger pockets to hold everything you need for a day at the office, on a long flight, or to and from school. The largest compartment on the JanSport Driver Wheeled Bookpack offers plenty of room and a padded sleeve for your laptop. The JanSport Driver Wheeled Backpack can hold up to a 15-inch laptop without any problem.
