Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksacks *sponsored post

Some of you may have read my profile, but in case you haven't, my lifestyle, or at least the 'work' part of it, revolves around freelance writing. Although a lot of the time I am in front of the laptop screen at home, I have been thinking recently about what I'd do if I decided on a change of scene, opted to try a co-working space, or just needed to take my laptop out with me for work.

Normally I just have to choose a bag from my collection that will fit my trusty notebook, pen, and camera in it, but if I needed my laptop with me, I'm not sure a normal rucksack would fit the bill. To me, my laptop needs to be safe and secure, and not bashing up against my other items as I walk out the house. If you're thinking along the same lines, then maybe the stylish backpacks on offer from City Backpacks will provide a solution.

City Backpacks are an online retailer, and the largest European stockist of a Korean backpack brand called 'The Earth'. The Earth have two different laptop friendly designs - the Harris Tweed Laptop Daypack, and the Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksack. Both combine leather, hard wearing canvas, cotton twill, and Harris Tweed, woven by islanders in the Outer Hebrides in their designs. What struck me about the items was their durable and practical nature. If I want to carry a laptop around I want something comfortable and hard wearing on my back, and it looks like The Earth have produced items catering for both those needs.

Both the laptop day pack, and laptop rucksack come in blue or brown colour schemes, and each has slightly different features, so you can choose one to suit your needs, whether you are looking for a college backpack or something to take to work.

My favourite of the two designs is the Harris Tweed Laptop Daypack, as I prefer all my pockets to be internal, and like the larger panel of Harris Tweed at the top. This design has a separate 15" laptop pocket, zip fastening around the top, and the signature padded shoulder straps and branded detailing. It looks like there is plenty of room for a laptop and all my other bits, but if you're looking for something a little bigger, with a couple of extra external pockets, then check out the Harris Tweed Laptop Rucksack.

City Backpacks also offer a range of urban backpacks, and other items to suit sports and outdoor use. The Harris Tweed Brand from The Earth illustrates this companies commitment to providing products using high quality materials that are built to last, and you'll find this is a common thread throughout all their products.

You can find out more about City Backpacks and The Earth on their website, and maybe discover you're own backpacker style.
