Why I Wanted to Try Out the Trendhim Black Cross Shoulder Jasper Backback

It’s about this time of the year, we start looking for affordable high quality gifts for everyone on our list. Typically, men are hard to shop for. Trendhim is a Danish Company that specializes in men accessories ranging from jewelry over suit accessories, to wallets and bags. So to speak, they are the experts on what men like.  From their collections I picked the Black Cross Shoulder Jasper Backpack because of its innovative design of an old school classic. The advantage of any backpack is that your hands are free.

Design of the Black Cross Shoulder Jasper Backpack

When I opened the package, the design of this genuine leather backpack revealed itself as very smart, and well thought out for the demands of the modern men. Just let me give you some examples. The shoulder strap is wide enough to carry the backpack comfortably. Furthermore, the shoulder strap is adjustable, and removable. There are three D loops (see photos below and video) permitting adjustment for carrying the backpack either on your left or right side or as a cross shoulder bag. The later is very advantageous when riding a bike.

The interior has a cotton-lining and pockets. The side pockets keep your keys, wallet, phone, and tickets  accessible. Their  strong YKK zippers keep your belongings safe. The cross shoulder Jasper backback measures 8 1/4″, 13″, and 4″ (21 cm, 33 cm, 10.2 cm) in length, height and width, respectively. This means it is large enough to carry an up to 12.5″, i.e. 12.2″ x 8.7″ x 0.8″ (31 cm x 22 cm x 2 cm) laptop plus everything else you need (see video below). Best of all, you look great carrying the backpack (see photos of my husband).

 

Price-performance Ratio and Further Aspects of Interest

The Jasper backpack is made from high-quality cow leather and shows great craftsmanship. The design is functional, but sleek and chic. Not the bulk of an old school backpack! The black cross shoulder Jasper backback looks more expensive than it actually is. In other words, it has a great value for its price of $179. The backpack is made to last. Therefore, you easily get it below $1 per wear, which is my criterion for a great deal. Thumbs up!

If black is not his (your) thing, don’t worry! Trendhim offers this cross shoulder Jasper backpack also in dark brown, brown, and tan. Recall that cow-leather softens with time.

At checkout, you can chose between USPS standard shipping (5-12 business days) for $6, UPS express pickup point (2-3 business days) for $15, and DHL express shipping (2-4 business days) for $20. Trendhim offers a free shipping option for all orders over $75. This means when you chose that option, you just pay for the bag.

What I also like is that Trendhim has a 365-day return policy. You rarely see this these days. I may be wrong, but my interpretation of this policy is that Trendhim must be pretty sure about the quality of their products.

Who Would Benefit from Having this Black Cross Shoulder Jasper Backpack?

This backpack is a perfect fit for commuters, bikers, and anyone who needs their hands free including young dads. Wearing the backpack across the shoulders permits him holding on to a handrail when riding the subground or train. My husband used the backpack for shopping and liked that he could carry it on his back, and didn’t have to put his back into the kid’s seat of the cart.

I definitely would recommend this black cross shoulder Jasper backpack to my girl friends as gift for the men on their list as well as to my male friend who are looking for a smart, sleek, functional and comfortable work bag.
