American Shield - Granite 25 Backpack // Fashion Favorites


Lately, I’ve been using backpacks as a purse, which is super odd considering I generally am a “purse” type of person. I think this transition happened when I realized I walked into work one day carrying a purse, my computer bag and a lunch bag and someone made a comment that I looked like a teacher with all my bags. LOL. I lived my life this way for years though, bringing many bags to wherever I was going just because I couldn’t find an all-in-one type bag for myself that made me feel comfortable enough to use. Also, I wanted to find something stylish and versatile enough to use every day.

American Shield has amazing backpacks and I was able to get my hands on one of their bags from the Granite 25 collection. What I love about this is that it fits every thing I need:

  • My 15 inch Macbook

  • Computer charger cords

  • Computer mouse

  • Phone charger

  • My Konfigur purse (Still carrying a lot of bags, but at least I can fit my smaller purse into my new backpack purse lol!)

  • My water bottle

  • My reading book

  • My cell phone

  • My batter charger/light

  • Snacks for work


What’s really great too is that the straps are adjustable and comfortable. What I find with a lot of stylish backpacks is that they don’t have enough support that it ends up hurting my back. With this backpack, I don’t have that issue which is great, especially since I carry quite a few things in my bag.


There’s a few different features of this bag that I really love!

First thing is the style! I love the double straps and the magnetic closures. I also love that the main opening/closure of the bag is a drawstring feature instead of a zipper. I find that this allows me to fit more things in my bag versus other backpacks I currently have. I love that my computer also fits snuggly into the bag and I don’t have to worry about any damage happening to it as I transport it around. The last thing I really like is the color. Although this style bag comes in 4 colors, I picked the black and brown colors as I found it would match with most of the color scheme in my wardrobe.

What do you think: Are you more of a backpack person, or do you prefer bringing around a purse and laptop bag in separate bags?
