With all the technology we had to go back and forth on a 40 minute metro ride recently, we needed something with sufficient capacity and comfort. Honestly, we were surprised to find out that the Hanover Deluxe 2 was that bag.
On closer inspection, the Hanover Deluxe 2 looks like a backpack for serious people carrying serious things that are more stylish than substantial..
It’s only available in black and deep navy blue, so it doesn’t try to be funky or kitschy, and it’s probably the kind of backpack that would please a brightly colored newcomer to the world. train if he could.
Unlike an old-fashioned aristocrat, however, the Hanover Deluxe 2 doesn’t shy away from heavy lifting.
It certainly doesn’t look like the kind of backpack you can stash a desk full of tech gear, but it’s surprisingly spacious with a 25.8L capacity. It also has a large number of pockets and pockets. dividers to facilitate the organization of your business.
It has a separate laptop compartment on the back that can comfortably accommodate your standard 15.6 inch laptop.
If you have a heavier 17-inch laptop like the Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021) or Dell XPS 17 (2021) or even a 16-inch MacBook Pro (2021), the back pocket won’t hold it perfectly, if at all. .
There’s still room in the main compartment to accommodate larger laptops and you can even make creative use of the foam insert to separate things so it’s almost like having a second laptop compartment. portable.
Trust us, we’ve transported a few this way. We’re not kidding when we say this is a surprisingly versatile backpack.
The side pockets are wide and deep and easily fit a coffee cup, U-lock or water bottle. And, if you need a little extra space, a zipper on the side increases its capacity to make it even more functional.
The front pocket also features smaller mesh organization pockets, and it even includes a key leash that made getting our smaller working keys a snap.
The zipper pulls have a very cool woven elastic through the zipper which makes them much more accessible when opening and closing pockets from different angles.
This is something we really enjoyed as we searched for our tablet while standing against the wall of a moving subway car.
Like many Lo & Sons products, the Hanover Deluxe 2 is a premium item, without a doubt. It costs $ 248 – although you can sometimes find it for sale for around $ 150 on the Lo & Sons site – and it’s only available in the US at the moment.
However, you will definitely feel every dollar spent on the quality of this bag, making this perhaps the best backpack for those who want to step up their style with a more upscale commuter bag while still keeping things stylish and stylish. timeless.
If that’s you, then the Lo & Sons Hanover Deluxe 2 should definitely be at the top of your list – just be prepared to make the investment.
