New Swag Item: Montezuma Convertible Backpack

This Week’s New Favorite Thing… The Convertible “Montezuma” Backpack from District Threads

The very first thing I must say is that the picture does not do it justice. This swag item is MUCH cooler in real life. I recently got a sample to try out (one advantage of being the Swag Queen) and it’s the best laptop-compatible backpack I’ve ever owned.

Brand new for Spring 2009, this backpack’s most innovative feature is that it easily converts from a backpack to a messenger bag so you can carry it whichever way is most comfortable for you. It’s a nice size for travel with a padded, separate compartment specially designed for carrying a laptop computer up to 17″ size. The roomy main compartment is also padded, as are the backpack straps and shoulder strap so it’s super-comfy to carry, even when loaded with stuff. The bottom panel is rubberized to protect the contents from moisture. Even the hand-carry handle at the top of the bag is padded… you can tell the designers of this laptop backpack have put a lot of thought into every detail.

I especially love the multitude of organizing pockets that are built in to this pack. They’re nicely sized and well-placed for easy access while keeping contents secure. It comes in basic black, or in the coffee-brown and black combo shown above (my fave). Your custom logo decoration can be added to the center front pocket with embroidery or screenprinting. My recommendation would be embroidery… it looks classier and will last longer, especially with heavy use.

The price? Around $40 each with logo embroidery, and a low minimum order quantity of a dozen packs.

These custom logo computer backpacks are a great swag idea for your company’s Sales Team and Executives who travel with laptops for business. They’d be a nice addition to an employee rewards program or incentive prize to use in sales contests. Colleges could sell these in their bookstores or use them as an gift when recruiting new students or athletes to their programs. Computer retailers may want to consider these as an item to sell with a new laptop computer. I can also see these as a nice gift to express appreciation for non-profit donors, volunteers and Board members.
