Since living in Northbridge i’ve found it impractical to just have a satchel as my only bag. My satchel is great for notepads and can even fit a small laptop in but i cant fit my camera in it or any thing with any real width.
I set out to get a backpack that was light weight, secure and looked good. The Baggu backpack i found met the requirements easily.
This Baggu backpack comes in ten different colours and is made from 100% recycled cotton. It has one main compartment with a smaller inside pouch and a small zip pouch on the outside. The main pouch is closed by a sturdy zip cord as well as a flap that is secured with a magnetic press stud.
On most days the bag contains a book, camera, 3DS and maybe a jumper with room to spare.
The bag also has a buckle that further secures the main compartment incase you are in high populated areas and worried about theft.
The only label on the outside of the bag is small, very discreet and doesn’t shout look at me.
Its the zip cord on the bag that provides the most security. It feels durable and has a really nice tension when opening and closing the bag.
The best thing about this bad is how small and discrete it is. With little to nothing contained within the bag is barely noticeable.
However what makes this bag so good can be a hinderance. Any object with obvious points or corners can be quite uncomfortable pushing through the unpadded cotton. The way around this is to re organise the contents or carry a jumper or something similar to add some padding.
Over all the Baggu backpack is really quite a good backpack especially in an urban setting where padding and support aren’t as important.
