Welcome to the review of the Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack

Quick Take

The Hustle II has everything you would normally expect from a regular backpack: 30 liters of space, a good set of pockets, laptop compartment, the usual. It has two things that set it apart. First, UA Storm Technology makes this bag an all-weather bag. Second, this backpack gives you a laundry pocket. All the features add up to a solid multi-purpose backpack.





UA Storm Technology

Anyone considering this bag should take into account of (1) the fact that it's gadget friendly (2) It has a unique laundry pocket and (3) it has what Under Armour calls Storm Technology. The said, technology being invisible, they need to call attention to it with a logo. The said, the logo is located on the bottom half of the bag and you can see it in the image below.

So what is UA Storm Technology? It is a treatment done to the bag that allows the bag to become water repellent and breathable at the same time. If you're going out in the rain a lot Storm Tech is something you'll appreciate. If you're going out in the rain a lot and your backpack doubles as your gym or sports bag then UA Storm Technology was tailor made for you.

This is the showcase feature of the Under Armour Storm Hustle II but it is by no means the only feature. For example, the bottom of the bag is specially made to be abrasion resistant. But there's more . . .

It's time to open up this bag and see what it has to offer.


UA Storm Technology

Looking at the bag you'll see two zippers which I highlighted below:

The initial impression is that this bag has two compartments. It doesn't. The zipper nearer the back of the bag opens the main compartment while the zipper nearer the front of the bag opens one of the front pockets

Here's a top view with the main compartment highlighted. inside there is a sleeve that can fit up to 15 inch laptops.

Here is a top view of the front pocket opened by the front zipper.


second compartment of the  Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack

Here's a frontal view of that front pocket


second pocket of the  Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack

As you can see, the pocket is a half circle that goes nearly halfway down the bag and it has a quite minimalist organizer section: Two pockets for mobile phones and a key fob.

Now let's zip up this pocket so we can get at the other front pocket shown below

This is a quick access pocket.


Laundry Pocket

I think that the laundry pocket is a big selling point of this backpack. Here it is:

It looks like a regular front zipped pocket but it goes deep into the bag. Dirty gym clothes? Shoes? Anything that needs to be segregated from the rest? This pocket adds a new dimension to the flexibility of this bag.

So there you have it. Weather protected, gadget-friendly and equipped with a laundry pocket. The Under Armour Storm Hustle II is a multi-tasker.

Oh yes, two more things: First, this is a 30 liter backpack - not too big, not to small. Second . . .


Comfort

Just some basic comfort features to round things out. Padded back, adjustable straps.







Comparing The Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack


The Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack vs. the JanSport Classic SuperBreak Backpack

VS

The Jansport Superbreak is a time-proven classic. If you think basic is beautiful then go no farther than the Superbreak. Main compartment + big front pocket + solid construction. And that's it.

The UA Storm Hustle II has a 5 liter capacity advantage over the Superbreak. The Hustle II doesn't have the classic cachet of the Jansport Superbreak but neither does it get pigeon-holed as a 'school bag'. With the UA Hustle II you'll get basic backpack functionality plus some useful extra features.


The Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack vs. the SwissGear Travel Gear ScanSmart Backpack 1900

VS

The SwissGear Scansmart 1900 is an organizer's dream. You'll love how this bag has a place for everything you need on the assumption that you're a technology-centric office worker.

The UA Storm Hustle II may not be as effective an office backpack as the Scansmart 1900 but what it has over the Scansmart is flexiblity. Office? Gym? School? The UA Storm Hustle II can adjust to it all.


The Under Armour Storm Hustle II Backpack vs. the High Sierra Loop Backpack

VS

The High Sierra Loop would be a full-on adventurer's bag were it not for the quite impressive office organizer pocket and the provision for a tablet.

The High Sierra Loop may be a bit bigger than the UA Storm Hustle II but the Hustle II has a special space for a laptop, not just a tablet. Flexibility is still the edge of the Hustle II over outdoor packs like the Loop.
