Why Oakley: Oakley is an American brand. And very popular for their products, they manufacture varieties of products such as sports accessories, helmets, eyewear, backpack, clothing, etc.
Is Oakley a good Brand?: If you have any doubt about the brand or wondering should you go with Oakley? Then, you should not be afraid of considering this brand as they make the best premium quality backpack. But this is a review article and I shouldn’t say very much about the brand itself. But I am just surprised about the result of my testing. And I decided to give a quick intro about how these backpacks got into my and my team’s hand.
About backpacks: I and My team collect lots of bags from Amazon for testing and after those tests, we were supposed to write a review article about the product. And that’s where am I right now. Recently a store manager approached me to test some backpacks. As usual, I agreed and gave some credit to my team to purchase those backpacks from Amazon. Although I already finished those tests. Let’s dig into the dept. and see what are these backpacks made of. I included all the buying links also, so feel free to check these products out.
The backpack comes with a sturdy look on its surface and is available in two colors on Amazon.
Materials used: The material used on this backpack is abrasion-resistant fabric. The best thing about this backpack is the material. This lining fabric is made of a combination of 35 percent of polyester and 65 percent of nylon. As quickly as I realized the material on this product is super durable I started to poke it with a spoon to see if any scratch is visible. But surprisingly there was none but a line or two on the surface.
Straps: The strap on this backpack is average and made of breathable fabric. There is a padded back and the mesh-lined straps are well adjustable. To see the strength of the straps, I put some weight on the backpack and hang the backpack upside-down to put some force on the strap, and left hanging for 1 hour. But the result was surprising. The sewing of the bag was unharmed and took a great force from the weight. This backpack is pretty durable let’s see the compartments of the back.
Compartments: This backpack has a capacity of 34L and that means it got many compartments. The highlighted compartment feature of the backpack is the 17inch laptop pocket. But this backpack doesn’t come with only a single laptop compartment. You’ll get a separate shoe compartment and also several pockets around the backpack. And on the top, You’ll get molded pockets for eyewear and a camera.
- 34L decent capacity.
- Abrasion-resistant fiber lining.
- Separate shoe compartment.
- Little expensive.
- A single zipper.
This backpack is the last product on our list. This is not actually a backpack but it does the work, that’s why I included this backpack on the list. I wasn’t able to test this backpack myself, but a trusted friend did. So I am going to tell you what I’ve been told. The pack comes with a unique feature but we are going to tell you what is this when the time comes.

The fabric quality is very good. My friend told me that he never expected this backpack would actually exist.
Straps: Oakley doesn’t compromise about the straps as other brand does. They provide awesome quality straps and let me you a fact when I was testing the sewing of these backpacks times instead of weight I just hung myself and have been still for a few seconds but nothing happened. And the surprising matter is, my friend did exactly the same. He tied the backpack with a pulling bar and put himself in the straps and hung for 1 minute as he recorded the whole video so that I can watch it later. And the straps have pads so you’ll feel comfortable.
Compartments: Here comes a unique feature, a 2L water bladder inside the pack itself with a narrow pipe. So if you feel thirsty then take a sip or two! The backpack allows you to keep your footwear separate from other things from the pack as they offer a shoe compartment to keep your shoe apart from other stuff. The dual zip compartment gives you a huge room and because it got dual zip and velcros, you can keep your things organized.

As we gathered all of Oakley’s Backpacks that are available on Amazon, I noted the name of the backpacks and see which bag is popular. After many hours of research, I listed them as the popularity reduces up to down.
This backpack is the second most popular from Oakley. And if you place this backpack beside the kitchen sink backpack then, you’ll notice some small changes but the design of this backpack is very much similar to the kitchen sink.
Materials used: The material on this product is a combination fiber that contains 20 percent of polyester and 80 percent of nylon. The product features abrasion-resistant fabric, that gives your bag double durability but this is nothing if you compare this bag to the kitchen sink. I had no idea that the pack wasn’t even ready for my tests. After a few scratches and throwing, the bag wasn’t new anymore. It got several things scratched. But on the other hand, the other materials, such as cables, lining, metal, Velcro straps, and zippers are much good than the main fabric of the backpack.
So the point is, the product needs some work.
Straps: After those tests that I performed on the backpack. The backpack was nearly severed and also I am warning you shouldn’t try this at home. But the main thing is its straps. Those straps are much more comfortable than the backpack itself. The backpack survived the test of weight hanging and the result was the same as the kitchen sink backpack.
Compartments: The compartments of this backpack is the highlighted feature. But now I know, this backpack has several specialized pockets inside and out. And the bag features a separate padded sleeve for keeping up to a 13-inch device.
- Good quality zippers, lining, cables, and metals except for the main fabric.
- Comfy straps.
- Padded device sleeve, size up to 13 inches.
- Average quality fabric.
- Bit expensive.
- Smaller device sleeve.
- Capacity only 23L
Have you ever heard of an expandable or foldable backpack? Then this is the product that you should check out. I received this backpack when there was a sale going on and got much cheaper than usual. Oakley introduced this product for those who intend to go somewhere but don’t want to carry luggage. This particular product I think made for me. Because I love to with a backpack on the vacation but don’t like luggage or like the smaller backpack.
Let us see what this product got on its own.
Materials used: The backpack is made of 93 percent of polyester and 7 percent of TPU, This backpack is washable and the other lining of this backpack is pure polyester.
Straps: Comfortable yet strong, this backpack provides a decent pair of shoulder straps and got e chest strap with a clip that helps you to fit this backpack on your back. These straps are super-adjustable.
Compartments: The main thing in this product is compartments. It allows you to expand the backpack. YKK-zippered compartments and strategic compression strapping provide plenty of storage options. So if you are having a problem with the smaller backpack then you should definitely buy this item. If you are really interested in this product you should wait for the discount sale and then you can get it at a cheap price.

But as time goes by this product became unpopular because of new products that occupy the most market. The design of this backpack got my attention so if you ask me, what is this backpack looks like? I’ll answer this in the compartments section. For now, let’s jump to the details.
Materials used: This backpack is made of 100 percent polyester. The company demands that the backpack can resist saltwater as the backpack has a special fabric for long-lasting use.
Straps: Personally I also love those straps, because there are 3 types of straps. 1st one is the main shoulder-padded straps which are very comfortable. 2nd one is the chest strap that keeps your backpack sticking on the back. The 3rd one is my favorite because these two straps hold your wet towel as the company demands this backpack be saltwater resistant. So now, when I need to go to the beach or a rainforest I will definitely take this backpack with me.
Compartments: 1st let me answer that question that I mentioned earlier. Of course!! This backpack looks dope!! The design is so bold that 1st I thought this is a military backpack. The highlighted feature of the backpack is the same 15-inch extra padded laptop sleeve. There is an eyewear pocket, media pocket, and other necessary pockets. The zipper is awesome and satisfying. I can always play with the zippers if I want to.
- 15 inches laptop sleeve.
- Saltwater resistant.
- Quick-drying fabric.
- Front straps.
- Not completely waterproof.
- Inner lining weak.
