Nowadays, it’s safe to safe that pretty much every person out there will probably own a laptop, no matter if they’re student, an office worker, a housewife, or even a stay-at-home mom, as laptops basically allow people to work while they’re on-the-go. Now, if you’re someone who works with a laptop quite often and you’re also regularly on-the-go, then one of the best things that you can get for yourself is a backpack equipped with a dedicated laptop compartment so that you can carry your laptop with you at all times. Not only that, but you’ll probably want that backpack to also be durable, comfortable to wear, and maybe to even integrate some extra everyday-use functionalities, such as a dedicated Power Bank pocket so that you are able to recharge your Smartphone while commuting or travelling. That brings to the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack, which was designed with a big focus on everyday-life.

The 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack is a durable and Eco-friendly everyday-use backpack mainly made of hemp that can be converted from a smaller 18L work backpack to a much larger 30L hiking backpack, all while also featuring a Bio Wax water-repellent coating on the outside, along with a laptop sleeve for laptops up to 15″, a tablet sleeve, extra internal pockets for additional everyday accessories, a dedicated Power Bank pocket, a quick-access front pocket and an Anti-Theft pocket integrated at the back-side.

Thanks to its ultra-durable and waterproof construction and its extreme versatility, this awesome everyday-use backpack can be used during the week for carrying all of personal work essential (such as your laptop and other smaller devices), as while its expandable roll-top design allows it to go from a standard 18L carrying capacity to an impressive 30L capacity, which also makes this backpack great to use during weekends or even while traveling.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack and check out everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & BASIC SPECS

Starting with its size, the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack comes at a reasonably standard size, as after all, it is designed to work as an expandable everyday-use backpack that can be converted between 18L and 30L of storage space. The back measures around 19.68 inches (50 cm) tall when using it in its smaller 18L capacity form, and around 23.62 inches (60 cm) tall when used in its larger 30L capacity form.

Measurements on 18L form and 30L form

Note that both forms equally fit a 15″ laptop (but more on that further ahead). The backpack is also fairly lightweight, with it weighing just 2.31 lbs. (1.05 kg) when completely empty.

Then, in terms of its design, this sleek everyday-use backpack features a gorgeous, truly minimalist and ultra-modern design, with its entire body coming either in one single solid color (or two colors at most, if you’d prefer that). For our review unit, we got the Flat-Black color model, from which we really love its badass simple looks.

Now, in terms of wearing the backpack, note that the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack features a truly ergonomic design, as the backpack features an ergonomic back-panel that makes it super-comfortable to wear at all times, regardless if you’re using it as a 18L work backpack or a 30L hiking backpack.

The backpack’s back-side also comes equipped with an ultra-durable chest strap that can be used to provide extra security and extra stability while wearing the backpack.

Note that the backpack’s ergonomic back-panel also integrates a high-quality breathable mesh pad that keeps your back fresh and comfortable while wearing the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack.

Moreover, just like the backpack’s back-panel, its shoulder straps are also padded with that same breathable mesh pad material, which makes them very comfortable to wear and without ever having them making too much pressure on your shoulders and back.

On top of its sleek and ergonomic design, the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack also features a 100% vegan and completely eco-friendly construction, as this everyday-use backpack is made of super strong cannabis hemp fibers that give it a super-durable outer shell, ultimately allowing it to last many years before it starts wearing out.

100% Vegan & Eco-friendly Construction – Made of Hemp

In addition to its hemp fibers construction, the backpack also features a very sturdy ecologically-certified lining, as that the backpack’s lining basically consists of a reinforced-stitching that’s completely made of recycled polyester, which further adds up to the backpack’s overall durability.

Not only that, but the backpack’s outer-side is also coated by a proprietary Bio Wax water-repellent coating layer that perfectly protects its hemp fabric from liquids, stains, and from dust particles, thus preventing all of those unwanted elements from ever getting through its hemp fabric and inside the backpack, ultimately protecting your stored essentials from ever getting damaged.

It’s also worth mentioning that the backpack’s Bio Wax water-repellent coating also makes its hemp fabric very easy to clean.

Last but not least, just like the backpack’s whole waterproof exterior, all of the zippers integrated within its pockets were also built to be completely waterproof.

CARRYING CAPACITY & STORAGE COMPARTMENTS

Finally, in terms of the backpack’s carrying capacity, as said before, the 8000Kicks Everyday Hemp Backpack is designed to work as an expandable everyday-use backpack that can be converted from a smaller 18L work backpack to a much larger 30L hiking backpack, meaning that this backpack features a quite a large storage capacity that allows users to carry just about anything inside it.

With that said, know that whenever you want to convert it from its smaller 18L capacity form to its larger 35L capacity form, all you have to do is to unstrap the vertical security strap from its expandable roll-top function (integrated at the top-side of the backpack).

Right after opening the backpack, you’ll notice a fairly wide open packing space that allows you to carry just about anything, whether that’s just your everyday work essentials, or even some changes of clothes for an entire weekend away from home.

It’s also important to note that the bag’s interior fabric essentially consists of a unique anti-odor lining that helps to inhibit / prevent the proliferation of microorganisms that are responsible for creating bad odors (such as the ones that originate from sweaty clothing items (or food storage containers like tupperwares).

As said before, inside the bag, we also have a large dedicated laptop sleeve that can fit up to a 15-inch laptop.

Not only that, but there’s also a tablet sleeve that can be used to store away a tablet, and if you’d like, even a book as well, as this interior pocket is large enough to easily fit both a tablet device and a small book neatly together.

Furthermore, sitting directly on the opposite side (i.e. just front) of its tablet sleeve, there are also a few extra internal pockets that can be used to store away additional everyday accessories, such as pens, a Smartphone, your house keys and/or car keys, etc.

Additionally, at the right-side of both its laptop sleeve and its extra internal pockets, there’s also a dedicated Power Bank pocket, where users can store a portable battery pack, which then also features a built-in USB plug connection to the outside of the backpack from where users can pull out their Power Bank’s dedicated USB-C or USB-A Charging Cable in order conveniently recharge their Smartphone while having it slotted within the backpack’s outer-side mesh pocket.

At the front-side of the backpack’s exterior, there’s also a large quick-access front pocket that users can use to store away any of their everyday carry items, such as a pair of wireless earbuds and their wireless charging case, for example.

Then, hidden at the back-side of the backpack exterior, there’s also an integrated Anti-Theft pocket that can be used to very safely store away any sort of important items (such as a passport and/or your wallet with all your ID cards and bank card), as only you can access this pocket after removing the backpack from your shoulders and back.

Lastly, at the right-side of the backpack’s exterior, users also have a mesh-net Water Bottle pocket, while on the left-side of the backpack’s exterior, they have a hanging belt that can be used to strap something to it, like a carabiner equipped with some additional camping or hiking gear and/or hand tools, for example.
