To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
After a battle with Amazon to get this delivered, it finally arrived. Beware of the emails that say it is out for delivery. You have no way of checking where it is. This was still in the depot at 9pm despite being told at 8pm it was on the way. Amazon ,you need to sort this out!!
The product is just what I wanted and will make carrying your more valuable items a little safer when out and about. It is very light despite the cables in the straps and mesh in the fabric. Enough room for an SLR camera, sunscreen, water and some food. The zips look sturdy enough and can be locked together as well as using the hidden clip. I saw some comments about the strap clip being poor quality. It is not plastic, it has a plastic cover in the vee to save wear and tear. It looks fine to me and I used to be a fitters mate on engineering. I would be quite happy to leave this strapped to a table or railings.
Yes it is expensive for a small rucksack. However, you are likely to be carrying money, cards, passports cameras and tablets. How much do you value these? Not been used as yet but will update when I return from Barcelona.
Update 23rd July: Have now used several times and I am very pleased with it. It holds all I want on a day out and keeps my hands free for camera work. I like the way the strap detaches to secure to a table or immovable object whilst in a restaurant or in a park or on the metro. Deters driveby snatches if securely on both shoulders.Straps are knife proof and the RFID pocket protects your passport and cards from data theft. Expensive? Yes a bit, but I am glad I paid the extra.
It's suitable for carrying small to medium items, main compartment is just about big enough to fit my fleece and 13inch laptop. Pockets are plenty and internal organiser pockets are very useful too with a plastic carabiner for keys. I feel secure using it knowing it can deter would-be thieves. I see this more as a basic little brother version of the much 25l rucksack which I also own. Also has an earphone port. Only disadvantage I can think of which isn't a huge issue but the back bit of the bag where the straps are is a little hard but thats only because of it's security & ergonomics, might be uncomfortable for some though so I have given it a fair four stars.
This is a very comfortable back pack to carry and seems strong enough to take quite a bit of weight. Ideal for town rather than carrying something over the shoulder. The secure fastening for the front pocket is reassuring for busy city wear. The only improvement I can think of would be the stretch cords which some back packs have and which take a jacket etc. if you need to remove a layer of clothing. The pockets are fine for water bottles and umbrellas and it is good to have a secure pocket for passport, credit cards etc. I haven't yet worked out what the short straps at the bottom of the shoulder straps are for, nor the little rubber trims on the front. It is near ideal for my day to day purposes.
This was a very expensive rucksack bought for a trip across the USA and purchased because of it's security features. The rucksack did not let us down on it's technical details but unfortunately on it's strength and durability! The inner lining has parted company with the stronger webbing where the zip open and closes the rucksack. I am going to have to return it as I am disappointed in the quality, I think it's just one of those things where an error was made when stitching it together and not enough fabric was seen into the seem. I'm sure the issue will be resolved with a replacement.
Perfect rucksack, ideal for city travel which we purchased it for, lightweight yet large enough for all the items you require on a day out with added security which helps you to relax and enjoy activities more
Great bag that has a number of added protection features that mean you can enjoy your travels without having to keep worrying if someone behind you might be interested in stealing something from your bag. Also seemed to keep my drinks cold in the heat which was an added bonus.
