The backpack’s main pocket provides room for books, folders, an extra layer of clothing, and other larger items. The main pocket includes a soft-lined laptop sleeve, which offers dedicated space for keeping a laptop securely upright and easy to access. The sports backpack also provides a handy pocket with organizers, a small padded pocket for a cell phone or sunglasses, and a front pocket for medium-sized items. Secure-shutting zipper closures on the pockets help keep belongings securely contained. An exterior slide-in water-bottle holder (one on each side) makes it easy to keep bottles of water within reach. The AmazonBasics sports backpack also provides a bottom pocket (not vented), which offers useful space for storing gym shoes or work shoes, keeping them separate from other belongings in the bag.
