Nike Hoops Elite Backpack
How many times have you wished that the backpack you have could store a few more items and had a few more compartments? We all know the answer to that question, as we always need some more storage space for the things we take with us, regardless of the purpose they have. If you are a golfer, then you already have your golf bag. Nevertheless, if you are like most of the golfers I know, then you need an additional smaller bag where you can comfortably store some of your extra garments like T-shirts, jacket, gloves, etc. Plus, many of us need plenty of refreshments on the course which the golf bag can’t simply accommodate them, as its purpose is to store the clubs and the basic accessories. This is why you need Nike Hoops Elite Backpack!
The use of smart technology is more than ever integrated in whatever we do, and this use has spread on the course too, so it is not a rarity to see golfers using their tablets, rangefinders, and additional smart devices that trace the accuracy and the speed of the ball and which are connected directly online via the internet or Bluetooth. This also requires additional space for all that electronics and charging cables, for which the golf bag doesn’t provide adequate space. All of this implies that when it comes to a golf backpack, it would be one that is compact enough to be taken with the golf bag, but at the same to provide enough space for all those extras that golfers might need on the course.
And, where else would we look for, if that’s not Nike? The world might perceive Nike as a presumably running sports gear company, but golfers recognize it as a golf company too, especially since Nike started endorsing Tiger Woods. Nike, however, is omnipresent in any sport, so there’s something for anyone there. This particularly refers to their bags and backpacks which can find versatile use in many different areas.
Such a versatile backpack is the Nike Hoops Elite Backpack, which has been a favorite backpack of school children to basketball players. The compact design it has and the storage capacity are more than impressive, and it has been one of the most looked for backpacks within the last two years. We’ll introduce every segment of its design below, so read till the end of this review to find out why it is the backpack that you should have for any possible occasion.

The black color and the white zippers make a good contrast which adds to its style and makes it modern and elegant at the same time. The Swoosh logo is on the frontal lower position and it comes in several color varieties.
The Quad Zip System
The top of the backpack features two of the four zippers each of them opening towards the opposite direction so that you reach the items positioned in that section of the bag without opening all four zippers. The single meeting point of the four zippers is positioned on the upper frontal section, but it is subtly covered with the stylish Velcro coverage with the embroidery of Nike Quad Zip System. This system is proprietary to Nike, and from this position, it continues downwards with two more additional zippers on both sides, so that users can open them from every possible angle.
Nike, as a premium sports manufacturer, is one of those companies that have taken special care to offer its customers super reliable and ergonomic straps that make carrying the weight much easier. The Max Air straps of this backpack are wide and double padded with length adjustability system. They equally redistribute the weight you are carrying, providing a perfect balance and lesser burden. For extra security, you can connect both straps so that it stays firmly on.
If you want to be on the safe side and get yourself a decent, high-quality backpack, then Nike is the brand to go to. And, if you are looking for a compact, sturdy and authentic design which is not going to look bulky, but at the same time will provide you with optimal storage capacity, then Nike Hoops Elite backpack is the model that deserves your attention.
