American Shield Granite 25 Backpack Review

I have received a Granite 25 Backpack in Black&Brown for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.

Sometimes you have to learn the hard way that quality is worth every penny. As someone who is always trying to get the most bang for my buck I have always jumped at the chance to get a good deal. Unfortunately I have learned that when it comes to a good quality product, sometimes you have to pay more and when it comes to lessons in life, sometimes you have to learn them the hard way.

My daughter and I are living proof of that hard to learn lesson when it comes to buying backpacks. This past year she has went through three different backpacks, none of which turned out to be the bargain that I thought I was getting. Each bag we had purchased for what seemed like a good deal at the time, proved too good to be true only to fall apart when actually being put to use.

At this point I feel like an expert backpack reviewer so we put the American Shield Granite 25 Backpack to the test and I am excited to share my opinions on this American made backpack.


This timeless design boasts a black and brown outside with a candy striped red and white inside.


The American Shield Granite 25 Backpack boasts textile lining and Oxford Fabric, high quality straps, buckles, and zippers built to last.

Constructed with durability in mind this backpack can store all of your essentials, easily carrying your books, laptop, lunchbox, and more.


Inside the drawstring opening you will find an Inner 15″ laptop compartment, 8 Smaller inner pockets, 1 Front pocket, 2 external side pockets, 1 Back pocket, and 1 Strap pocket.

Compartments of all sizes and shapes to carefully hold onto every item you need.


The beautifully designed adjustable shoulder straps make this backpack the perfect fit for everyone.

The Flap + press stud and drawstring opening keep your items secure while easily accessible.

The American Shield Granite 25 Backpack  is versatile, spacious, beautifully designed, quality constructed, and built to last. It has exceeded my expectations for an everyday backpack and really drives the point home that you get what you pay for, and it’s best in the end to choose quality.

I"m a pocket kinda girl! The laptop compartment and inner pockets are what I look for in a backpack.

I use my backpack a lot, so I definitely need something durable and of high quality. I'd definitely get use of all of those internal pockets.

This might be a good backpack for my husband. He's pretty rough on his bags.

Our kids seem to run through backpacks during the school year. It would make sense to pick up some of these, so we're not stockpiling and getting rid of numerous backpacks.
