The hard-wearing Cotton Duck fabric shrugs off rain like a mallard’s back, and the word durable just doesn’t do it justice. It lasts decades.
Here it’s sturdily stitched into a 24-litre courier bag measuring 40x30x20cm. A wide shoulder strap is supplemented with a security strap that prevents bag sway and helps distribute the load onto your chest and hips.
For short trips comfort is good, and as the load is your chest and hips. For short trips comfort is good, and as the load is lower on your back than a rucksack you don’t get so hot.
There’s an internal divider and a small zipped outer pocket. Closure is by two buckled straps, with added Velcro, and there’s Scotchlite on the back.
