Knapsacks, more commonly known as rucksacks or back packs are the ultimate in hands free bags.
There is no need to succumb to the big bulky mountaineering style back packs of old; nowadays there are a whole host of stylish variations to suit a range of needs, including those that fold away into a flat piece of nothing!
The folding backpack – a handy thing to have with you on your travels just in case!!
It makes sense right? Lightweight, easy to pack, nice bright colour, and it carries lots of ‘stuff’.
Having tried and tested it over several weeks I can safely say it was extremely good value for money, (£3.71) comfortable to carry when light and surprisingly strong when heavy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone as a useful cheap extra.
There are just a few sore points I should share:
As you can see, the straps are not padded for comfort so you want to avoid weighing it down too much, keep it light!
The two grey mesh outside pockets are a great feature but my bottle of water kept falling out when the bag was fuller.
If your in a hot climate and sleeveless – the straps can scratch on the skin a little.
If the sun is strong, the inside coating (waterproofing, I think) of the bag will melt – as happened in my case!
I guess I got what I paid for…but it was still good value for the price as a one off, and carried a lot of ‘stuff’ 😉
I bought the Lavolta hard case to store my action camera (LYNEC AC65 Sports Action Camera 1080P HDwhich I will review separately once I’ve given it a good test run) and other small photography bits and pieces like chargers, to take away on holiday.
I’ll be squeezing various items into slots – regardless of the shape, as the foam is flexible.
Although the case is relatively hard, it does have some flexible ‘give’, it isn’t hard like acrylic/plastic so I’ll be keeping this in my hand luggage. It might have been more protective to have foam in the over as well as the base.
At £9.90 it seemed very reasonably priced.
Most of the foam is glued into the case, expert for the filler area – this is handy as you can use spare pieces of foam to custom separate some of your smaller pieces.
The case is great for a modest collection of less bulky accessories, given that it is a slim case.
Lavolta hard case also looks rather smart and will be easy to slide into your bag – it has no handles or straps, but to be honest, it isn’t something I plan to be carrying around with me every day, it is really more of a travel carry case, and is very lightweight for this reason.
