Venque (pronounced Venk) just made traveling more stylish with its classic backpack that comes in different colors. The one I got for review is the Canadian brand’s Classic backpack in Denim.
Just by looking at it made me realize that this bag is meant for people who always carry a laptop with them. It can fit a laptop up to 15 inches on its main compartment, which has another pocket for other essentials like notebooks or documents. It also has a “secret” pocket inside for extra bills just in case you need them.
I used to be a fan of backpacks when I was in college, but it all changed when I started working in the corporate world. As soon as I decided to take it to work with me one day, I thought it was the best decision I’ve ever made. All my things sat comfortably inside this Venque bag.
What’s more interesting about this is it features V-shape foam pads for your back’s comfort despite having the need to carry a heavy load. Seriously, I tried throwing in two books (Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You), my daily baon (two small square containers), my black wallet, and kikay kit and it didn’t feel like I was going on an overnight hike to Mt. Pulag – at all. I think the adjustable, padded straps were a big help, too!
But among others, there’s one more thing I like about this denim-ish bag: it is crafted with Top Grade Quanta Fabric, making it more durable. Who needs a luxury bag when you can splurge on this backpack that can withstand the hot and wet seasons? If I may add, Venque used real leather on this bag’s handles, cover, and trim. Now, that’s something!
I only had an issue with its zipper, which was easy to unzip without even realizing it. As a commuter (a patron of the plagued MRT here!), I value safety when it comes to my bag. When I brought it to work, I had to wear it like I was carrying a baby and hold onto it until I reached my station. It would help if Venque could add something to their stylish bags for security reasons.
Overall, I’d definitely ask my friends to try this bag for their daily use or even when they’re traveling abroad. At around P4,000, you can get hold of this Venque Classic Denim which you can show off around.
