    Thanks mate. Trust me, product is worth the price. You could try winning it in a photo contest or something. It took me long enough to win one but I finally got it.

    My favorite backpack is a Samsonite laptop backpack.

    another one hidden below. Very nice interior. A safe place for important things.

    The included Laptop bag is big enough for a 17'' MacBook Pro.

    It is a perfect backpack, even for a three days business trip with some extra cloths. It was love at first sight. The combination of design, material and functionality was the reason to choose this one.

    He's my mate since 2014. In my job I have to travel a lot, mostly for 2 to 4 days, and therefore I prefer this slightly bigger Rucksack to my super nice OnePlus backpacks, which are perfect for a one or two day trip.

    My wife bought it for me as a memory to our trip to Lisbon, in a small leather and bags shop in the city. Of course this is full of the best possible memories. Hey, it's Lisbon. And we met @Hige , which is another nice memory. A OnePlus memory.

    Ps. All pics shot with the OnePlus 5 and not edited.

    I'm new to this community but would love the chance to try out the new backpack, I've loved the OnePlus brand for a long time at the same time not long enough. I really can't believe how little people in the U.S. know of OnePlus. And I'm excited about the things OnePlus is doing. Don't know how you guys do it but you continue to keep me in awe. Thanks and good luck everyone.

    I always loved Burton backbacks because Burton makes products that are of great quality. They are reliable and relativly cheap. And they have great patterns and designs.

    The Lab - OnePlus 6 Reviewer Oct 22, 2018

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to share my story with you all. It doubles as my submission for The Showcase.

    For a long time, I used to have an Eastpack backpack for anything that was related to school. Things like pencils, books, clothes, food and drinks are all things that I used to carry along on a daily basis.

    Over the recent years, my life has changed quite a bit. I met new people, changed habits, learned many new things and I became part of this community. But one thing that has changed even more, are the things I carry in my backpack, and the backpack itself too.

    Earlier this year, I lost both my grandparents. It was around the same time that I took part in The Lab for the OnePlus 6. It really was tough, and still is every time I think about them. Since then, I changed the way I live, and my view of the world. I spent more and more time on completing projects for school, and getting better at what I do; UI/UX Design and photography. As a gift from my other grandparents for both my loss and still being positive about what I do, they bought me the OnePlus Travel Backpack - Space Black, because it looks clean and professional. It has been with me for about 2,5 months so far.

    Important Things First
    It's not only emotional value for me, it's also part of my daily routine. As my education exists of programming, I always carry around a laptop suitable for work, and at the same time powerful enough to play a few games when I'm taking a break from work. It's the most important thing in my backpack, too. I was surprised my laptop fits in it, as the max size listed on the website is 15 inches. It could be, because I'm using a different compartment for my laptop than I'm supposed to do.

    Creative Thinking

    Some of you might know that one moment when you have an idea in your head, but you have nothing to draw it on? That's why I have my OnePlus Sketchbook. It's the second most important thing in my backpack, and I use it very regularly. I won't be able to share my drawings however, as it contains mock-ups of projects that I'm working on. But, it fits perfectly fine in the backpack. There's even a separate compartment for it (I mean, it fits...).

    Common Contents

    Then, there are your other needs. I always take a load of accessories with me including; chargers, adapters, cables, cleaning cloth for my camera lenses, food and drinks, earbuds, phone cases, and more. For all of it is room, without having to squish it all together which was the problem with the backpack I used before it.

    Build Quality

    There is however a slight problem with it; It's not suitable for intensive travelling in my opinion. The way you open the main compartment is not my favorite thing to do, so you'll always need two hands to open it. That's not an easy task when you're holding things like an umbrella and a camera.

    Apart from that, the materials used do look and feel very premium, and the overall design is great too. I don't feel the straps around my shoulders being there either, well, almost. It's still ~6 kilo that I'm carrying every day. It's also easy to clean, which is a very positive thing as I like to keep my stuff clean all the time.

    The reason I want the Explorer Backpack is not to replace my Travel Backpack; It has emotional value for me. Instead, it's an addition to it. I'd love to keep work and travelling around in the woods and nature separated, instead of having to change the contents of it.
