Let’s start at the front: the Mi Travel Backpack has a pocket at the front that’s ideal for storing gum, keys, or hand sanitizer (a must if you’re visiting India). Then there are two side pockets � the one on the left has extra lining and makes it a handy location for a power bank, and the right pocket can be used for storing a granola bar or two.
The main compartment has six pockets in total, giving you more than enough room to keep things organized. You get two pockets at the top for storing business cards, small notebooks, or cables. Then there’s a zippered pocket where you can store writing paraphernalia or accessories. There’s also a pocket at the bottom that can be used for chargers or additional cables. The main compartment itself has enough room for a camera and a few lenses. I was able to fit my Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and Sony MDR-1000X Bluetooth headphone along with its carrying case without any issues.
On the other side of the compartment you get two zippered pockets � the one at the top is lined with suede and is ideal for sunglasses, and the one on the bottom can be used for storing phones.
Round the back, the second compartment is large enough to accommodate a tablet and a 15-inch notebook. I was able to slot in my 13-inch MacBook Pro and a Galaxy Tab S3 with room to spare. And yes, it stands upright when you put it on the floor or on a flat surface.Another thing I like about the Mi Travel Bag is that it doesn’t have any branding, save for a small Mi tag at the back. The shoulder straps are padded, as is the back. I’ve been using the Mi Travel Backpack for just over a month now, and it has served me very well, particularly when I’m traveling to product launches with a full loadout of gear. The only issue I have with the bag is that it doesn’t have a provision for a water bottle.Finding a good gear bag isn’t easy, as there are tons of great options available across price segments. You can pick up a Samsonite backpack for as low as $30, and if you’re looking for something fancier, there are bags that easily run into several hundred dollars. Xiaomi’s offering finds a great middle ground � it’s still affordable at $45, but you get a product that’s far superior to anything available in this segment.See at GearBest
