I bought this to use as a small, casual daypack on holiday. I had low expectations because of the price I paid (£10.49) but the design and stitching and durability far exceeded my expectations. It was perfect for holding water, sun screen, a light jumper, map and phone. It’s a robust little bag that I over-stuffed on occasion when it suddenly got warm and I squished my coat into it, but it held up very well. The straps are easily adjusted while you’re wearing the pack. An individual water bottle fits into the mesh side pockets. And it does genuinely pack down into its own little zip pouch. It’s not fancy, not padded, not waterproof in a downpour, but for me it’s a great, light-weight, sturdy little daypack that I’ll pop into my luggage anytime I travel in future.
A useful small day sack for walks etc. I've seen comments that it being packable into itself is a gimmick and not useful, but I disagree - you can carry it in other luggage or a pocket and it takes very little space, then just unpack it when you need it for a day trip or whatever. Seems well enough made and can carry a couple of bottles in the mesh pockets too.
Loved this purchase. It packs up really neat in size for travelling, but is a great size backpack when unpacked. We had room for food, drinks, sunscreen, clothes, camera, glasses, other bits, and still space for purchases during the day. It keeps contents dry in light to moderate rain, and is comfortable to wear also. Great value for what it is and ticks alot of backpack for travelling boxes!
This is the equivalent of a pack-a-Mac, lightweight but sturdy and folds away into its own pouch. Exactly what we wanted for our trip to Florida, really didn’t want to be carrying a heavy rucksack. This even has bottle holders so couldn’t ask for more. Will be buying another one in different colour. Highly recommendable.
I loved this little rucksack loved the colour I chose, lightweight to carry, however when we hit some rain when out with walking club it soaked through everything including my purse was saturated. It dried off very quickly and looked as good as new, yesterday I was out walking for our latest walk it was very hot, I was hot but don’t really sweat profusely, however when I returned the whole neckline and part of the back was the colour of the rucksack, it has washed out but disappointing.
Just the job! Lightweight folded up and zipped and then opened out! Waterproof, ideal when on holiday. Good sturdy strong material and the adjustable straps are strong too. Folds up quite compact. Netted water bottle carriers each side. A good zipped front pocket. We've packed little and loads in it, very easy to wear and comfortable. We always use ours as one piece of hand luggage when flying, you just need to organise stuff being packed in as little things obviously will work their way to the bottom! Flew to the caribbean with a change of clothing in it plus shoes and travel documents, Kindle, phones and all the usual travel necessities.
I couldn't find my regular rucksack. I discovered I couldn't manage without it, but didn't want to invest in another one, so looked online for a temporary stopgap. I found this one and it checks all the boxes. I couldn't be without it -- I love it!!! Holds everything I need for a day out walking or visit to the beach. I can fit lunch, drinks, book/journal and a towel. Comfy to wear. Only drawback is that it can get a bit sweaty against my back on very sunny/hot days, but dries quickly when I stop for a snack. Therefore, tolerable given all the other benefits. Have not been out in the rain with it, so can't rate it's water resistance. Best feature of this product is that it is a packaway and so perfect for travelling! Excellent value for money and I love the range of colours available.
Great, light weight and strong bag. Really stuffed it with heavy stuff (water bottles, sun oils, books, towels etc) it carried everything with out stretching or ripping. After 2 weeks of continuous use it looks as good as on the first day. Very pleased.
I really like my new little fold away backpack. It's comfortable to wear and I love the colour. However, when I was using it, it started raining and unfortunately all the contents in the bag were wet... i still liked it but i just won't use it in the rain.
I was looking for a backpack for use while going on day trips abroad that would not take up room in a suitcase. This fits the bill perfectly. It folds into its own inner pouch and could fit into your coat pocket. When open it easily holds two lightweight foldable jackets which only take up about a third of the space leaving plenty of room for other things. Backpack appears well made and will hopefully live up to other reviews regarding it being waterproof.
