When asked to review the MinkeeBlue Amber Backpack, I was excited because I sometimes refer to myself as a “bag lady.” I’m always searching for the perfect bag to carry all the “stuff” I must have when I leave the house.
This is a sponsored product review, but all opinions are my own.
The Quality Is In the Bag
Before I looked at the backpack, I could tell it was good quality. The care and attention to the outer packaging were obvious. I knew I could store the backpack in the heavy-duty drawstring bag when not in use. In addition, all the metal parts and the handle were covered in strong twisted paper, and wrapped like candy.
As I was unwrapping the backpack, I discovered the water bottle holder hidden in a side zippered pocket. It fits a slim canteen or 16 oz. bottle. This pouch is utilitarian but can be retracted to maintain the sophisticated lines of the bag.
The MinkeeBlue Design Features That I Like
The detachable purse holds a small smartphone, cash or credit cards, and a passport. It attaches to the shoulder straps on the front, making it handy for air or train travel. The elegant purse does double duty for a night on the town.
The detachable purse is too small for my smartphone. However, two open pouches in the main compartment hold my phone in easy reach. No dropping your phone into the interior and losing it at the bottom of the bag.
The clever design includes a lined lunch bag or cosmetic bag that fits neatly in the bottom through the backpack’s zippered compartment. There is ample room to pack a change of clothing and a pair of shoes in that bottom compartment, should you decide not to use the lunch/cosmetic bag.
The main interior compartment is separated from the bottom with a sturdy zipper and velcro fasteners. Open that up, and you have even more space for taller items. Carry your 13′ laptop in the interior sleeve, along with a couple of file folders, and store pens in the handy holder. You have a complete office at your fingertips.
The backpack design is unique because there is only one handle to carry from the top. The bag is well-balanced and easy to pick up with the single handle.
The thickly padded shoulder straps are a dream to wear, and the backpack doesn’t sag low on your back, which might cause lower back pain.
About the Inventor and Designer of MinkeeBlue Amber Backpack
Sherrill Mosee, inventor and designer of MinkeeBlue set out to solve a problem she calls, the ‘overload bag syndrome’. Like many women, Sherrill carried two or three bags to work—a purse, laptop bag, lunch bag, and sometimes shoes in her purse. She wanted to create an organizational fashion bag for busy women whose roles changed throughout the day—from an executive to a fitness enthusiast, daily commuter, and mom.
She said she made the bag just for me! And that’s true.
Mosee put her degree in engineering to work and came up with the patented MinkeeBlue design. She describes MinkeeBlue as a reflection of “who we are” and “what we do” in our daily lives – “Your day is in the Bag”, says Mosee.
While exploring and packing my MinkeeBlue Amber Backpack, I realized just how versatile it is. Every space is well thought out and works well as you prepare for your daily commute, an overnight business trip, errands, or a gym visit.
