New Backpack

A few weeks ago I read a Facebook post from Thomas MacEntee where he describes the backpack he uses:

“When I travel to genealogy conferences, many people ask me where I got my rolling backpack – it is a High Sierra Powerglide Wheeled Book Bag from Amazon – and it is 59% off right now…”

Since my old backpack I usually use has seen better days, I jumped right onto the Amazon.com link and checked it out and read the reviews. So glad I did. I ordered the black backpack right then. Here are some of the terrific selling points for me:

1)      Large, multi-compartment design with CUSHION ZONE padded computer sleeve holds most 17" (screen size) notebook computers.
2)      Large, zippered front compartment has premium organizer with media pocket, zippered pocket, multiple open pockets and removable key fob.
3)      Zippered accessory compartment has a headphone port.
4)      Smooth rolling, corner-mounted wheels.
5)      Double-tube telescoping handle stows inside a protective zippered compartment.
6)      Contoured, adjustable mesh padded shoulder straps store behind a zippered, padded core back panel
7)      Zippered side pockets hold a water bottle or other gear.
8)      Triangle clip to attach a lock or other accessories.
9)      Corner guards and a kick plate protect the bag from abrasion.
10)  Reflective accents for night safety
The backpack arrived yesterday, was I ever excited!
I’ll be going to the 2015 FGS/RootsTech Conference in style!
