Brenthaven Broadmore Backpack

11/17/13 We have a winner!!!

Congratulations to Lisa Henry!

Thanks to everyone who entered.

It’s hard to imagine calling a backpack “handsome” but this one is so elegant that a traveler can feel comfortable taking it anywhere. The Broadmore by Brenthaven is durable in design, style and texture. Made of ballistic nylon with a soft Napa leather trim and chrome hardware, it has a pinstripe quilted lining and enough interior and outside pockets to stay organized throughout your trip.

One of it nicest features is that it’s specially designed to protect your electronic gear, with separate padded pockets for a laptop and an iPad or e-reader. The laptop pocket flexes snuggly to automatically adjust to the size of your laptop. The product is TSA approved to be “X-ray friendly” so you don’t need to take your computer out as you pass through airport security (when you’re traveling domestically). You merely zip it open at the midline to lay it flat on the conveyor belt.

I’m used to carrying large tote bags but the comfort of being hands free with ample space to stow everything I need on the plane has made me a convert. If you’re looking for a backpack with a slim profile, this isn’t it. But for the luxury traveler who wants enough space to stow everything you’ll need on the plane (and a few personal items you accumulate along the way), this is a perfect choice.


To enter simply write the name of your favorite travel destination in the comment section below.

The winner will be randomly chosen on November 16 and announced here. Only open to residents of the continental United States. 

Contest ends November 15, 2013. 

Retailing for $249.95, the Brenthaven Broadmore Backpack is available from Zappos, B & H Photo, Apple, and other retailers. It comes with a lifetime guarantee and looks like it will last a lifetime.

    I just came home from a trip and wished I had a back pack because my back was bothering me from the 3 hour delay and the pulling of my carry on and the weight on my shoulder of my briefcase! My favorite place is a toss between Paris and London in Europe. In the states it is NYC.

    My favorite place to go home away from home to is The Big Island of Hawaii.
