Travel The World With Style Beside-U

Posted by

Santa’s got a brand new bag!

A Beside-U bag, that is!

Ok so, I’m not sure if Santa actually does have a brand new Beside-U bag, but if he doesn’t, he should! Santa needs to ditch his old sack and get his hands on one of these beauties!

Beside-U Caliper Bags

Almost a year ago I told you about the fabulous Luisa and Steph Beside-U bags we received for review.

Wow, almost a year since we received our first Beside-U bags. You wouldn’t know it though, by looking at the shape of both the handbag and the laptop bag. They still look brand new despite the fact that I use the handbag daily, and the laptop bag gets used at least once a week.

And for those that know me well, they know I’m not “easy” on my handbags.

Our Beside-U bags have withstood the test of time, wear and tear – and being hauled everywhere!

We can never have enough bags, right my friends? Well, at least that applies to me. I collect bags like some collect shoes.

Because…one bag does not do it all, does it? And even if it does, there’s always another size or colour that can be added to the collection, right?

So now we’ve added another Beside-U bag to our collection – a Heritage Collection Caliper Travel Backpack:

Caliper Backpack Beside-U

You guessed it! I’m already in love with our Heritage Collection Caliper Travel Backpack! It’s gorgeous!

Handbags are like can never have too many! ~ @BesideU_Canada Click To Tweet

So many great features! This is a quality backpack!

  • Inner RFID (Radio-frequency identification) blocking zipped pocket – protects credit cards/identity
  • Strong, durable zippers

Beside-U Backpack

  • Coated in Teflon Fabric Protector – protects against stains
  • Available in 3 classic colours: Black, Blue, and Strong Grey
  • Measures 28cm L x 42.5cm H x 14cm D – Plenty of room for all you need to carry
  • Padded pocket for storing 15″ laptop
  • Sleek, classy style
  • Great attention to quality and detail

Travel With Style Beside-U Bag

  • Full zipper completely closes top opening of backpack – keeping your things safe
  • Large lower back, and front, zipped pocket
  • Sturdy carry handle
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Handy inner pockets for pens, cell phone, and personal effects

Beside-U Caliper Backpack

  • Side pockets for reusable water bottles
  • Expandable domed sides
  • Detachable security whistle

The Caliper backpack is new to Beside-U bags but, I have a feeling it is going to be a popular product. For anyone looking for a good-quality, durable and stylish backpack, this is it.

With the added RFID blocking protection, and all the useful features of this bag, this Caliper backpack makes for a great travel companion, whether you are traveling across town, or across the world.

Think you’d like a Caliper backpack of your own?

    I love the grey laptop backpack. My regular laptop bag (also in stylish grey) feels so huge and bulky – when I wear it, I feel like I’m carrying something twice as big as it should be and I’m afraid to take a kid out if the bag swings the wrong way in a coffee shop! I need something more streamlined.
