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.
Hi, This was a fantastic bag for a 6 week trick through Italy and Switzerland. The anti theft clips make it easy to clip on. (We bought an extra bag from a baggage store which was much more cumbersome in this regard). Right amount of pockets for all items. It almost felt like my security blanket - I only needed a couple of cards, passport, water bottle and phone in it. Def worth the money.
Great size and comfortable to wear. It has many compartments to fit in your items needed for daily travel. It remained reasonably dry when it was raining one day and clean up well with a wipe of damp cloth. The clips to secure the zips are a good deterrent and you could but a lock through them too for extra safety. Very happy with this backpack.
Used this backpack every day on recent trip to Southeast Asia and it proved invaluable. Held a fair amount as my carry-on for flights, including camera, iPad, cables and batteries, toiletries, small towel; could have stuffed in more if necessary. Attached neck cushion with carabiner and was good to go. Various compartments kept smaller items handy without having to rummage around. On coach journeys and day trips kept it light with just a few essentials, and even in the heat (intense at times) it was very comfortable and did not cause a sweaty back, through a linen shirt at least. It also looked neat on my small (5ft 2) frame and more stylish than my previous ‘built for the hills’ packs.
Always used the anti-theft clips when out at nights, where I needed backpack as a shopper to hold souvenirs. Once, on a crowded street, felt a slight jostling on my back and turned round to see a guy up close with a scarf around his hand. With easier access he might have gotten away with something, who knows.
Now back home will get more good use of my backpack on long walks and days out with grandsons. Very happy so far.
However on arrival one of the zip holders for the zip wasn't nailed down all the way and as a result, the zip clasp has come off. I received this abroad on 2 month trip away so didn't have time to return it.
Shame as a result I can't say it has great build quality, but otherwise it is a good sized bag with good compartments.
