The dhb Slice 30l Rucksack is a stylish looking bag that’s designed for commuting and other outdoor adventures.

While the 30 litres of storage offers plenty of capacity for the daily commute, its lack of visibility does let it down and there’s no provision for waterproofing.

However, it’s a good looking bag and I had no qualms using this for my commute and travelling around the city, a fact aided by the multitude of easily accessible pockets.

The Slice has two long, vertical, perforated pads running the length of the back, proving both comfortable and helping keep a sweaty back at bay.

On-bike comfort is aided with the chest and removable waist straps, while the padded shoulder straps are comfy enough.

The Slice is a gem in terms of organisation and a real plus point, especially for commuting use,

Internally, there’s a compartment for a laptop, and externally there are two external zipped pockets for valuables, a front pouch, two water bottle outlets and a helmet net, all adding to the bag’s huge usability.

There’s multi-use appeal, too, extending to hiking and short runs.

The construction quality and durability of the Slice is impressive, but I’d like to see at least a pull-out waterproof cover on any Slice sequels.
