Pack it all with Yak Pak

Ever since I was in Elementary School, I hated backpacks. Not your typical annoyance at the thing clinging to your back...no...full on I want to burn it with fire hate. You have to stop what you're doing to get anything out of it, because you have to remove it from your body. You have to dig around for a while to find what you're looking for, because very rarely do they have a good organizational tool in them. Plus, they make you look like a dilapidated turtle. 

For me, the backpack simply wasn't an option, and I gravitated early to the use of messenger bags. Not only could I get something out of my bag without stopping, but I could organize it, and fit more into it as well. I was still a bit disappointed in the quality and designs of some bags though, so I generally had to go with a plain black. That isn't exactly my style...

Thanks to Yak Pak though, I've found a bag that not only is the quality I expect from my bags, but comes in bright and vibrant colors and prints as well!


As a Senior in my last year at Kansas State, my workload is massive...and so is my supplies list. I have four textbooks, seven notebooks and folders, pencils, highlighters, a stapler, my Kindle Fire, my wallet, and various small things like lip balm and eyeliner that all have to make the trip with me to classes each day. Most bags won't be able to hold all that, let alone be comfortable to wear when stuffed full.

My Yak Pak bag, however, still has room to spare! There is one large inner chamber, with two full length pockets along the inside front. The main chamber holds all my books, notebooks, and folders perfectly. The inside pockets hold most of my pencils and pens, and the various smaller items I need them to as well. There is room for my Kindle and wallet too.


On the outside, there is a double pocket along one side, that I use to hold my most used pencils and pens, as well as a box of tissues. Seriously, I can fit a small box of tissues in this thing, and you can't even see it in the picture, can you? The larger pocket runs almost the entire height of the bag, and the smaller outer pocket is about half of that. The outside of the flap also has a zippered pouch, which allows me to take some of my O2 brochures with me as well!

Even with everything I need in the bag, I still have room. I don't even have the deluxe version, I only got the classic. Not only does it have all the room I will ever need, but it's not a flimsy or wilting bag. It's sturdy, almost stiff, and extremely well made. The bag itself is made of a kind of starched canvas material, with solid stitches, and a wide shoulder strap. The strap doesn't dig into me like most of my other bags, and I don't get tired carrying it either.


The bag is held close with four strips of velcro, and a clasp, making sure nothing is going to slip out. This bag is perfect for kids and adults alike, and I'm seriously considering never getting another brand of messenger bag again. In the two weeks I've been using this one, I've become rather spoiled to be honest.
