Review of Odyseaco Montera Vintage Canvas Backpack

Up for review today I’ve got a canvas backpack that is supposed to be in a vintage style, but I think it looks fine and even non-vintage really, something that would fit in just fine at work or play. The Montera has three pockets, two for your stuff and then a padded area for your laptop or tablet. The bag is made of canvas making it rugged and durable. Read on to learn more…

Specifications and Features



The bag has a large padded handle on the top and then a thinner nylon one towards the back. The thinner one is to hang the bag on a hook of course. I do like bags that come with handles on the top of them, it just makes life easier really.



On both the right and left sides of the bag you’ll find pockets that can fit water bottle or whatever you might want to put in them.



There are two pockets or compartments in this bag, yes only two. The front pocket measures about 14.5” x 9.5” and it’s about one inch thick.

The main section or compartment is actually two of them, one large space for your stuff and then a padded section for a laptop or tablet. The padded area has an elastic strap with velcro to keep it secure. The space can hold up to a 15” laptop. The whole compartment measures about  11” x 18” in size and it expands to about 6 inches thick.

On the back is two padded and adjustable straps. The straps aren’t very thick but they should be comfortable enough for daily use.




The Montera backpack is very well made and I love the looks of it, but it just doesn’t have enough pockets for me personally.

The backpack does have two large pockets to put all of your stuff in and then a separate padded compartment for your laptop or tablet which is fine, but there’s really nowhere for your phone, or pens and pencils or any smaller items that can easily get lost.

All in all the Montera is nicely made with double stitching, I think the canvas material is rugged and the bag should last a long time even with daily use.

+Very well made overall
+Large spacious pockets
+Padded laptop area

-Really no small pockets and only two large ones
