I am planning an upcoming trip to Europe and realized that I did not want to pay to check a bag, especially since I will be taking flights between countries. Then I realized that I did not have an adequate backpack.
I started with a Google search. I needed a bag to take to Europe that was:
- Had enough space for 10 days of clothing
- Worth the price
I found a few decent ones but they didn’t seem durable, on top of charging way too much for them.
The material seemed flimsy, even in a photo. I visited Amazon and found a few pricey backpacks but they were good for the size and the fact that they were anti-theft.
I came across this one on Amazon and I immediately liked everything about it, except that it was electric blue. (The black was $100 more.) It was deep and was made of a sturdy material. But most importantly, at 21.7 x 11.9 x 8.7in, it fit into my carry on requirements without a problem.
I attempted to see how much would fit into this backpack and I got seven pairs of leggings, 10 shirts, 2 pairs of jeans, about 3 weeks of underwear, as well as my electronics and toiletries, with more space left over.
When They Say Anti-Theft, They Mean it
At first the clip was a little tough to undo but not too bad. On each compartment of the backpack, the zippers meet and the two are looped through an extra piece and hooked, making it impossible for anyone to quickly open the bag while your head is turned.
The material is, what they call “slash proof”, stopping thieves from cutting open the bag. A waterproof cover is also included in the bottom of the backpack.
I am usually hesitant when first seeing a product online. So this backpack sat in my Amazon shopping cart for about two and a half weeks before I actually completed my purchase. So far, I am happy with my decision to buy, and will give an update once I take off to Europe with my new backpack. It can be purchased here https://amzn.to/2OtvKg1
