Welcome to the review of the Oakley Mens Kitchen Sink Backpack

Quick Take

The Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack is the all-in-one backpack that you can bring to the office, take to the gym, and use for camping or hiking. You get big space, special storage for your accessories, a place for shoes or wet items, and features that protect your pack out on the trail. If you've been looking for one backpack that does it all then you should definitely consider the Oakly Kitchen Sink




The Main Reason For Buying This Bag

The main reason for buying this backpack is the 34 liters or 2,000 cubic inches of space that it gives you.

That's the reason why this bag is called 'Kitchen Sink'; it's a play on the term 'everything but the kitchen sink' - a reference to the substantial space this bag brings to the table.

So if you need to carry a lot of stuff, and you're looking for a big bag, read on . . .


The Oakley Signature

Oakley is best known for eyewear. Given that brand affiliation, every Oakley backpack has special storage space meant for eyewear. The Kitchen Sink is no exception. Here's where you can put your sunglasses or glasses:

This specialized pocket is lined with soft material meant to be gentle on glass surfaces; that means your - preferably Oakley - sunglasses or youcan also use this pocket for your mobile phone. The pocket also has a hard cover for extra protection.


Better Protection During A Downpour

When you go out in the rain with a backpack, even if the backpack is water-resistant, rain water will tend to seep in through the zippers. In order to get around this weakpoint Oakley designed a protective 'cap' over the Kitchen Sink which you can see here:

15 Inch Laptop Compartment

The Oakley Kitchen sink has a padded space for your 15 inch laptop.

This laptop compartment can be accessed from the top of the bag or from the side.


Organizer

This space right here:

Here you have an organizer section with extra security provided by the buckle straps on the protective lid or cap.


Shoe Pocket

Let's take a look at the bottom of this backpack:

Your looking at the reinforced bottom of the Kitchen Sink Backpack. Note the drainholes.

This is the bottom part of a shoe pocket. This shoe pocket goes deep into the bag and aside from the drainholes it also has ventilation.


Side Pockets

Two big side pockets allows you to compartmentalize and gives you quick access and that pretty much rounds out our tour of the Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack.

Comparing The Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack


Let's compare the Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack to other 34-liter backpacks.

The Oakley Mens Kitchen Sink Backpack vs. the Deuter ACT Trail Pro 34 Backpack

VS

With the Deuter ACT you give up the flexible jack-of-all-trades nature of the Oakley Kitchen Sink for single -minded trail focus.

The Deuter has a lot of features that help you to both tighten the load inside the bag as well as keeping the bag tight and snug on your body while you are on the trail.


The Oakley Mens Kitchen Sink Backpack vs. the Dakine Arc 34L Backpack Mens Inferno OS

VS
Dakine Arc backpack

Exchange the laptop for skis and the shoes for a helmet because the Dakine was specially made for skiing.

Nonetheless, the Dakine Arc's ripstop material and convenient pockets can be used outside of the slopes. If you're looking for cleaner and slightly sportier design then the Oakley Kitchen Sink then the Dakine Arc is your bag.


The Oakley Mens Kitchen Sink Backpack vs. the JanSport Mens Digital Carry Mainstream Recruit Backpack

VS

Going head-to-head with the Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack in the flexibility department is Jansport's Recruit Backpack.

Both backpacks can handle laptops and you'll get an organizer with both.

Although the Jansport Recruit doesn't have a shoe pocket you can swap your laptop for a hydration pack in the Jansport when you move this laptop from the office to the outdoors.
