(upbeat music) – Hey, I’m Dorian, joined by my wife and
celebrity men’s wear stylist, Ashley Weston. – Hi. – So, guys, today we’re talking
about a very important topic for this time of year, the best budget friendly
backpacks that we’ve tested. Let’s get into it. (upbeat music) Before we get into it, these are the top three that
we loved the most; however, there’s a couple that
we really also liked, but for time… (laughing) We don’t want this to
be a 30 minute video. We linked them in the article
in the description below, so check it out. There’s actually quite a
few others that are included in that list, so definitely, definitely hit the link in the description below. Let’s get into the first selection. It is… – This guy by Incase. – Yup. It’s fantastic. We’re huge, huge, huge fans of the Incase. Every single time we do a backpack and/or a briefcase/messenger bag video, they always make the cut. Very high quality for the
price and I just think… – Yeah, this is your traditional backpack. The zip goes all the way around, but it has great padding. The structure of the
backpack stays intact. – I love they always do,
depending on the style, they always have a little
hidden compartment. I don’t know why, but
that just gets my goat. – It’s a super clean design, so everything from the
zipper detail to the tabs, everything matches the
color of the backpack, so it’s just super clean and sharp. And, then, just functionally, it’s great. Whether you’re carrying a
laptop, IPad, your books, notebooks, whatever, nothing
is going to get squished. – This one’s a little on the smaller side, so if, obviously, you’re not
lugging around a lot of stuff, this is going to be best for you. They make another version and
it’s linked in our article in the description below, that’s a little bit bigger than this, but very, very, very similar style, so definitely check it out. Our second favorite budget
friendly backpack this year is what Ashley? – This guy by Herschel. – Yup. So we particularly like this one ’cause it’s a bit of a different design, although kinda classic. We talked about a similar
backpack years ago and the thing that usually drives us crazy is that these buckles are
really hard to deal with, but they did you a
wonderful, wonderful service and they made them – Magnetic snaps.
– Magnetic snaps. So much easier to use. – This is a top loading
backpack, so a little different. We’ll open this up,
basically you just open up, it fits a lot. – Very roomy. Very roomy. – Yes. – And you have the added bonus
of having the candy stripes on the inside, that’s a wonderful touch. – It’s just a classic
Herschel designed backpack. You’ve got the leather detail here, also padding on the shoulder straps. – It’s really, really thick actually, so very comfortable,
especially when you have a lot of heavy stuff in it. I noticed that when we
were testing this for sure. I just think the design,
overall, is very good. And for the price, it’s really hard to go
wrong with Herschel stuff. I have to say, they’re
really, really high quality, and they always do a great job. It also comes in various colors. – [Ashley] Oh yes. – So if you don’t like
the tan and the navy, you could definitely do other colors. Definitely many, many options, so check out more details
linked in the description below. So, Ash, what is the third one? – Well, I’m super excited about this one because I am a personal user of them. It’s an Aer backpack. – An Aer backpack? – Aer. A-E-R. This backpack is by Aer
and this type of design, it has a turtle shell
that has a zip down here. – I think that’s very interesting. – As well as the traditional zipper all along the perimeter of the backpack. – Yeah and it has a
padded laptop compartment, pockets, etc., but you particularly like this
and you failed to mention, your clients also use this backpack. – Yes. I converted them. – What is on the bottom,
Ash, that you really like. – A feature of this backpack that I love is this compartment down here, this is where you can put
your shoes, your gym shoes, in here and I use this all the time, especially if I’m traveling, I like to put my athletic
sneakers, my workout sneakers in this compartment. It doesn’t take any additional room with the rest of the backpack. It’s just so great. So many great compartments and
ways to organize your stuff. – [Dorian] Comfortable, padded. – It’s so comfortable, yes. There’s padding in the back
as well as on the straps and this backpack, I’ve carried
mine for a few years now, and it still looks brand new. Obviously, we tested out a
lot of different backpack and we’re fans of a lot
of different backpacks. – Yup. But, for me and for my clients, we still just keep
coming back to this guy. It’s fantastic. It’s so
roomy. It fits a lot of stuff. – I like the design, personally, of the Incase bags a little bit, they’re a little more modern, this is a little more
tactical, we’ll call it. Guys, again, check out the article linked in the description below
for some other really great, budget friendly options
that just didn’t make it for time reasons. Fellas, thanks so much for watchin’, we’ll see ya in the next one. – Bye. (upbeat music)
