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)

Brilliant bag, many compartments & very strong.

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.


How much weight will this bag hold? I walk daily and I want to increase resistance by adding weight. I need a rucksack that can safely carry a weight plate and distribute the load properly through my back/core. This bag looks perfect for its size, padded straps, chest straps etc. Any advice gratefully received.

Hi Richard. Thank you for your question. When adding extra weight I would advise making sure the bag has a strong and comfortable hip belt to control the weight and potential sway of the bag. The Technicals Slipstream 25L Daysack is a good option and also has a highly vented back system to encourage air flow. I hope this helps.

I would like to know the dimensions of the rucksack when full, as to use it for cabin luggage
