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.
Love this backpack. Nice to have the locking zips and all the other security features. Comfortable. Only thing is I had to pay customs charges which was unexpected. Red Pebble Products have said they will reimburse this to me. I have sent them proof but they have not reimbursed me.
I really wanted to love this bag. I thought it would be worth it to spend the extra money to buy this backpack for an upcoming trip to Europe. It has all the features you want: RFID protection, slash-resistant bag, locking compartment for all zippers, side pocket for your water bottle, and is big enough to carry your essentials. It definitely gave me the peace of mind that I needed when traveling. It also is really cute and durable, and goes well with any type of outfit. One thing I noticed off the bat was the main compartment's zipper lock was very stiff and I struggled to lock it. At first I was pleased because that would mean it would be very difficult for someone to pickpocket me, however after 2 days of use, the spring of the lock broke and was no longer functional. I was still be able to latch it but it would sometimes come undone and was easily unlatched without effort. I am normally very careful with my belongings so it was greatly disappointing that it broke so soon given how gentle I was. This basically made the backpack a regular backpack in terms of the zipper. Overall I definitely like the concept of this backpack and I was pleased with the appearance of it as well, but unfortunately the main feature I bought it for failed me.
Overall, this was a very handy bag for my recent trip to London, UK. It was surprisingly comfortable and easy to wear even when filled, and I felt everything inside was secure. I struggled a bit at first with how to open quickly the main zipper, it seemed a bit stiff and because the opening is not straight across you have nothing to pull the zipper against, but then I got the hang of it. Being able to lock the zippers was a very helpful security feature. The size of the bag was also excellent - not too big and bulky (so it was somewhat an elegant bag), but big enough for daily essentials (wallet, water bottle, book, phone, extra battery, other little odds and ends) plus extra room for souvenirs. I found 2 things irritating about the bag: 1. there were actually too many little pockets which were actually not deep enough to really hold anything securely (looked like they were made for credit cards - but I would rather have all that in my wallet). What wold have been extremely helpful would have been a little pocket on one of the straps or at the back for easy and quick access to a travel card. 2. I have a very small wallet which fit into a zippered pocket in the main part of the bag so I felt it was very secure. But if my wallet was a regular size, it would not have fit, and then I would have had to put it at the bottom in the main part of the bag, which would have been a pain to access and felt less secure. That being said, I am very happy I had this bag for my travels, and would recommend it!
Absolutely loved this backpack for the majority of our trip and would have given it 5 stars however near the end of our 2 week trip the zipper lock to the front card pocket broke, which is arguably the most important zipper. Material seemed to be of great quality and water resistant. Backpack actually held all of the essentials and then some.
Had the same one for years and stuffed the front pocket too full too often as finally the zipper wouldn't hold. This one arrived - exact same style as the one I had before - couldn't be happier. Perfect size, comfortable to wear. Love the added safety features. I'll be careful not to stuff the front pocket with this one! If you are looking for a great gift for someone who likes to travel - it's a fabulous choice!
Un peu dispendieux mais une belle grosseur avec plein de poches. C'est un petit format mais assez gros pour mettre un chandail ou un manteau doudoune dans le sac. On peut attacher les fermetures éclairs ensemble ce qui découragera un voleur. En plein ce que je cherchais. Pratique en voyage ou pour de petites excursions. Il est aussi léger.
Excelente producto, materiales muy resistentes, espacio interno muy amplio y tiene muchos compartimientos muy utiles Solo un par de contras: 1. No se puede cargar mucho peso porque las correas son delgadas y no tienen mucho acojinamiento. 2. No es repelente al agua
