American Shield Granite 25 Backpack
Both Mr.H and myself love travelling, whether it is long holidays, camping, glamping or even a short weekend break. For short breaks and day trips we prefer to carry backpacks. A well-designed and functional backpack in the right size usually holds everything we would need for a day trip or hike. And recently we had the opportunity to put to test one such backpack - the American Shield Granite 25 Backpack.

American Shield (as you would have guessed from the name) is an American fashion backpack brand. All their products are designed and made in USA. The brand has been around for decades and they have been innovating with smart design and coming up with superior quality luggage and travel gear meant to deliver performance and style. American Shield recently released a new Granite 25 backpack range. Lightweight and durable and with plenty pockets these new backpacks are perfect for daily use or travel. We were sent one of these backpacks to test and share our feedback and thoughts with our readers. So, here it is.

When we received the backpack, both me and Mr.H immediately agreed that the backpack looked very versatile and functional. Just how we like a backpack to be. The backpack has accompanied us on day trips and a weekend break and so far it has been a wonderful experience. It is lightweight, well-made and quite spacious. With clever packing we were able to fit in a lot of stuff. And very comfortable to carry, according to Mr.H.

Some of the key features of the backpack are:

- Made with Oxford fabric and has a lovely textile lining
- Easy to use flap/press stud/drawstring opening
- Has an inner 15" laptop compartment
- Loads of pockets for easy organisation (8 small inner pockets, 1 front pocket, 2 external side pockets, 1 back pocket and a very handy strap pocket)
- Comfortable and adjustable shoulder straps
- And a top handle for those times when you don't want to carry the backpack on your back

We loved the sleek and stylish look of the backpack. The black and brown combo is a classic combination and attention has been paid to finer details like the magnetic clasps, the zippers used, the materials used, the stitching - everything looks and feels good. It is a fashionable backpack. But quality and functionality have also been taken care of. The backpack is a good size, very spacious and we love that it comes with so many pockets/panels. Makes organising and retrieving stuff so much easier.

To sum it up, we think the Granite 25 backpack is a good mix of fashion and functionality. If you are looking to buy a backpack and are fine with investing in a good one (because high quality products not only will last for several years but also offer better protection to your goods), then do check out this one from American Shield.

The backpack is priced at USD 299 and is available in four colour combinations - Black&Brown (featured), Coffee, Black and Green. To find out more details about the brand and the backpack, you can visit American Shield's website.
