Messenger bags and briefcases have the advantage of being at your side and easily accessible, plus you can sit down on a chair while wearing them. Still, many of us (myself included) prefer the good old backpack for comfort, aesthetics and several other reason. If you'd rather not choose, Reddit user turnTheLead demonstrates how you can just take pretty much any messenger bag or briefcase and turn it into a backpack in just a few seconds.
You can get a pretty good visual representation of how it works from the photo above, but turnTheLead explains it step by step:
- Lengthen the shoulder strap all the way.
- Pass the shoulder strap through the handles
- Open it up so you have two holes for your arms to go through.
- Put it on and be hands-free, ready to fight or eat a hot dog.
Pretty cool. For more pictures, check out the full post over at Reddit.
