Detailed Review of the Official Manchester United Backpack / Gym / School Bags

Let’s start with the size. I’d say these Man U bags are in the ‘sweet spot.’ At 18 litres, they are big enough for your gym kit, laptop, or college books – without being bulky. They are made of a textured grey material, with a subtle ‘heather’ design. This gives a quality look and is not loud or brash. You can wipe spills off easily, and the darker bottom won’t spoil if you keep it on the floor.

The Manchester United logo is bright. This is placed in the lower right corner as you look at the backpack face-on and shines against the grey material. I like the size. This manages to balance the distinctive fans bag, while not being too big or crazy in design. The red outside zip goes vertically up the left size of the bags. Keeping this in Man U colours is a plus point – it would be a major mistake to have this in blue!

Features of the Man U Backpacks

On the outside you have adjustable straps. I’d say these keep the sizing fine for secondary-school age up to adult. There is also a carrying handle on top. Mesh pockets on the side work for drinks, or maybe a smaller umbrella.

The main compartment zip has overlapping fabric. This is a small and important detail. It not only looks smarter it stops anyone opening the bag easily while you have it on your back.

Inside View – Three Separate Compartments

You get three zipped compartments. The main one includes a side pocket with an elasticated strap. As you can see in the picture below, this is perfect for a laptop or tablet / iPad. There second compartment is smaller. The mini pocket behind the bright red zip is perfect for smaller items.

The inside is lined with durable nylon. This is easy to keep clean and looks plenty tough enough to stand the test of time.

Feedback: What Buyers of the Official Manchester United Backpacks Said?

Parents left feedback for these bags after buying for their families, as well as adults buying their own bags. There are more than enough comments to form an accurate picture. This is overwhelmingly positive, everyone gave five stars – with only a handful of people complaining about broken zips and similar.

I was expecting the football team branding to be the most popular feature. Surprisingly, this was the grey textured outside. It came in for individual praise multiple times – with the word ‘smart’ coming up repeatedly. Excellent quality was also reported in multiple comments.

As with all bags, do take the time to check the latest feedback for yourself. This can change, and you don’t want to be left ‘holding the bag’!

Wrapping Up: Is the Official Manchester United Backpack Right for You?

This bag works in so many ways. The subtle positioning of the logo and red zip make it unmistakably Man U – though it is neither too loud nor too brash.

For me that makes it work for gym, school, college, or work. The 18-litre capacity will fit a laptop, books, or your gym kit no problem. With three zipped pockets and two mesh side pockets, there is room for those handy extras that other day bags and backpacks wont’ fit.

While I reviewed the Manchester United bags, you can get them for many of the biggest teams (and even for national teams).
