Very good larger general purpose backpack

This backpack is just what I was looking for, namely a larger general purpose bag that's still OK for work / everyday use or short/overnight trips but doesn't make you look like you're off hiking for a week.

The bag has plenty of space, even for a 33L bag with lots of separate compartments. I'm not sure how strong the zips or shoulder straps are, time will tell, but the side straps are a good feature as they should take the load off the zips and help to keep the bag fairly streamlined.

Overall, I'm very happy so far.

Bag has plenty of room for my sons school equipment; files, PE kit and lunch. Sits on his back without making it sore.

Seems like a good sturdy bag. Can't give it five stars as only had it for a little while so don't know how durable it is. It is spacious with a good number of compartments for organising your bit and pieces.

4_5 out of 5

Seems like a good bag with plenty of room. Straps don't seem particularly robust so time will tell if they can withstand the commute (via bike) as long as my previous one did (5 years)

Does what it says on the tin, best rucksack I've ever purchased

Super rucksack

I've been searching for a new rucksack ever since my old one from a cheaper shop tore and became unusable but it has been surprisingly difficult to find one on the market that has multiple compartments. I'm very happy I found this one. It has lots of different compartments including a small one inside the bag that zips up to store your wallet inside. Both the blue colour and the black are very stylish.

My only recommendation would be for Blacks to show the inside of the bag in the photographs as the selling point for me were all the compartments that most rucksacks lack.

What type of the material is this backpack made from and is it environmentally friendly? Thanks for answering the wave of questions Blacks.

Hi Poppy. Thank you for getting in touch with us and we are happy to help, always aiming to give the best product advise to help you out on your next adventure. So this day pack is made from Polyester and has a tough rip stop fabric, there are polyester and elastin mesh pockets too. These are made in the most efficient and eco friendly way but the product itself does not have any eco friendly information or features. I hope this helps and we are happy to answer any more questions. Many Thanks.

Also, does the backpack have YKK zippers and can you use it for school as well as how long will the backpack last?

5th Apr 2019, submitted by Poppy

Hi Poppy. This pack does not have YYK zippers but does have toughened zippers due to the general use outdoors. It can be used for university, school or city breaks. The bag should last years but this does depend on the type of usage and how well it's cared for. Many Thanks.

Is the bag water proof as it doesn't mention anything about water properties of the bag?

1st Apr 2019, submitted by Poppy

Hi Poppy. This bag is not waterproof, it does have a strong enough face fabric with a light coating that will handle a very small shower. You can buy different sized and universal rain covers for this size of day sack though. I hope this helps.

31st Mar 2019, submitted by Christine

Hi Christine. This bag is front opening and has smaller pockets and organizer stations inside too as well as the laptop sleeve area. I hope this helps and if you need to see one then why not visit your local Blacks store. Many Thanks
