You’ll have valuable electronics to carry around campus and it can be nerve-wracking when you consider how easily they can get damaged. Here are our suggestions for how to keep your stuff safe and to put your mind at ease.
Stowing all your books, electronics and personal items in a sturdy backpack is the first step to keeping everything protected. JanSport backpacks come in a wide variety of colors, patterns and most importantly, sizes, so you can choose the one that will work best for you. The backpack featured here has a compartment designed specifically for toting laptops as well as a water bottle pocket. This classic black JanSport backpack costs $44.98 and can be found at select campus bookstores.
“You are wonderful and I love you” are words we should all say to someone every day. This adorable iPhone case will not only pick you up if you are feeling down, it will keep your phone safe, too. The smooth feel of the case allows it to be slipped into your pocket or backpack without causing friction and it is scratch resistant. Built specifically for the iPhone 4, the case will not block any of the buttons or ports so you can leave it on while charging, taking pictures or uploading files to your computer. Also available in black and white, this Lost Dog case is available at select campus bookstores.
We previously wrote about these recycled laptop sleeves and all the ways in which they cut down on pollution, so now we’ll focus on the protection features. The case has 4mm walls, so not only will it provide a solid cushion from books and notebooks in your backpack, it is also lightweight. It was designed to allow your laptop to breathe, which helps to prevent overheating even after you zip the case closed. Plus the outside is waterproof, which I think is awesome when I consider the number of times I ate lunch with my laptop sitting on the table and the many close calls I had (I’m a bit clumsy!). Neoprene laptop sleeves are not only environmentally friendly, they are great on your wallet too with prices starting at just $24.98.
