I just had to share my love for this travel backpack that I bought last year… it’s the best! 

Whether you’re heading to the library, the coffee shop, or the airport, this functional and dependable backpack makes it easy to haul around all of your must-have items, and I think it happens to be pretty cute and hip, too! 😃

This Lekesky Travel Backpack goes with me pretty much everywhere and it’s so stylish, I practically consider it an outfit accessory! More importantly, it checks the box on nearly everything you’d want in a reliable laptop backpack.

This travel backpack is currently available in three colors, all with arrow designs on the front pocket – choose from black, grey, or black made from PU leather.

Note that when I purchased my backpack last year, they just had a basic grey option (pictured above). However, they no longer have this one available, but I’m actually liking these new styles better. Both Lina and Sara are loving their travel backpacks in the new styles (as pictured throughout this post).


Here’s why you should ditch your old Jansport and upgrade to this trendy travel backpack:

The size is just right for laptops.

This travel backpack has a dedicated compartment that allows plenty of room for screen sizes up to 15.6″ so you can trust that your hardware and quite a few other items will comfortably fit inside.

The designated document area and additional pockets also make it super simple to keep everything organized and easy to access. I love that there’s a compartment for practically everything I need, including my water bottle and even an umbrella! Once you start using this backpack, you’ll never go back to your old tote bag!

“Where has this bag been all my life? The interior is roomy; it is not cluttered with tons of little zippered spots that hide your items, and instead has a simple row of open pockets that let you slip items in for easy organization and retrieval.” – Amazon reviewer

It’s durable and made to last.

A water-damaged laptop or phone is enough to bring most people to tears, but thankfully this bag is water-resistant and made with heavy-duty polyester fabric.

Everything down to the double zippers, snap fastener, and stitching has been thoughtfully designed and carefully constructed so you can rely on your backpack for years to come.

“I ordered this bag as a laptop bag for work. It has exceeded my expectations! I ordered the grey version of the bag. I love the texture of the fabric. I have yet to use the bag in the rain, but it has held up well in snow. There are so many useful pockets, which I love! I have been pleasantly surprised by the capacity.” – Amazon Reviewer

It’s the perfect travel companion.

Whether you’re road-tripping with your buds or jetting off in a plane, you probably won’t have a ton of extra cargo space and this travel backpack is just right for condensing everything you need and keeping it all nice and tidy.

If you get restless from the straps on your shoulders or the weight on your back, simply switch to the handle hold for a more comfortable carry!

“I love this bag so very much! I’m so impressed with the quality, but also love that it’s not heavy. I can fit so much inside this backpack when traveling – cosmetics, my laptop, cords, headphones, snacks, & more. I also like that I have the option to either wear it like a backpack or just carry it by the handle like a tote bag.”  – Hip2Save sidekick, Sara

The Lekesky backpack is more than just a great travel bag.

Who says you have to be heading to the airport to put your backpack to use? It also makes a functional diaper bag, a handy assistant to teachers, a convenient carrier for camera lenses and accessories, and so much more!

It’s also a great gift idea for students, travel enthusiasts, and anyone you know who is always on-the-go!

    I’m thinking about getting this for work bag to carry my laptop and stuff back and forth on the train. Does it seem too big and/or bulky for that?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi CJ! I just spoke with Sara and here is what she said about this – “I think it would be perfect for the train personally! I find the backpack to be very lightweight even with clothes and a laptop inside.” Hope this helps!

      • CJ

        Thanks for checking on that for me, Amber…and for the info, Sara! 🙂

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You bet!

  2. tipaye

    I’ve been wanting this bag since the original post, but am not a fan of the new design 😔 Maybe I can hunt-down an older one. Thank you!

    • Erin

      Same. Why are all the options dark neutrals with arrows??? For travel, you’d think they’d offer some bright, easily identifiable colors.

      • tipaye

        😂 I don’t mind the grey, I don’t like the colorful arrows 😉

      • tipaye

        Thank you! 🙂

    I got one of these last year on Colin’s suggestion. They have several on Amazon very similiar. I love it! The best part is that it opens on top. It’s the same as other backpacks, size-wise.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      YAY! Glad you like yours, and I agree – I love that it opens at the top, too! Makes it so easy to put stuff in and get stuff out. 🙌

  4. Andrea

    I bought one of these early in the year and even though I’m not going anywhere these days, I’m still so glad I bought it. It’s super sturdy and roomy.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome!! Happy to hear that. It really is such an awesome backpack and cute, too! 😍

  5. Mel

    Just sent this post to my husband bc I would like Santa to bring it to me lol 🎅🏼 🎄

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Love it lol I hope your hubby gets the hint. 🎁 Sometimes it takes my hubby multiple hints. 😆

  6. Jenuinely

    I am looking for a traveling backpack just like this! and do not see myself paying extra money on the Bei brand. I own one of the Bei messenger travel bags and the bottom “feet” already broke off! Thank you Hip2Save!

  7. Liz

    Where can I purchase the cute gray hoodie shirt that Collin is wearing in the pic? Thanks!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi Liz! I am obsessed with this brand -the quality is awesome and this hoodie really is so comfy! https://amzn.to/2UFUc1j

  8. Meg

    I have both the backpack (at your suggestion) and the suitcase Colin is using (which I got at T.J. Maxx on clearance. Twinsies! Too funny!

    • Meg

      *Collin, sorry!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO awesome, Meg! 🙌 Happy you could snag it on clearance!

    Same here, code doesn’t work.🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

  11. Elvia

    I’m trying to purchase it but the code you gave said it’s invalid???

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Elvia! Sorry about that. The code is now expired. We have updated the post.

  12. Mcox

    I love mine, but I have the older design- I think this one looks like a great diaper bag.
