We were recently contacted by Samsonite to review their “Tectonic Medium Backpack” and how it can benefit today’s busy college student.  College Cures and a variety of college students were given a Samsonite Tectonic Medium Backpack to review.

Samsonite Unisex – Adult Tectonic Large Backpack, Black/Orange, One Size

First, some details on this backpack:

  • Rubber coated, cushion comfort grip handle
  • Padded laptop compartment that fits up to 15.6″ laptops
  • Oversized zipper pulls
  • Interior mesh and zippered pockets for easy organization
  • 2 water bottle pockets
  • Air mesh back padding that allows air to circulate


This backpack from Samsonite pretty much has it all for anybody, not even just a college student, but any professional on the go. Light, comfortable and equipped with tons of pouches and compartments for easy storage. A soft and efficient laptop pouch for carrying around college’s most necessary tool.  Two water bottle pockets and even soft grips on zippers and handles add that extra comfort that cheaper backpacks tend to ignore.

Air flow

By far the coolest feature of this backpack is likely the least noticed. Where your backpack touches your back there is a series of mesh pads with space in between that allows air to flow through.  In the harsh Florida summertime (right now) this has proven an essential tool for me when traveling around with my valuables. I can stay cool when the temperatures head towards the 100 mark and be sure to avoid having to peel off a sweaty backpack.

One thing that is for sure about this backpack is there is no sacrificing quality. Every element of this pack is fully equipped.  The zipper handles have rubber grips and are durable to avoid breakage over time. The zipper track is strong and durable and its easy to see it.

Spending a little extra on this Samsonite Tectonic Medium Backpack seems like a no-brainer for today’s college students and professionals on the go.


Durable. Lightweight. Organized. Equipped. Solid.
