If you need one bag to do it all, this one is versatile and works well

The Loader is one of the more versatile bags we’ve tested, with effectively three volumes on offer,


The top can be secured with a couple of buckles, and can then be rolled down to give full waterproofing, and the top section can act as a fold-down flap for smaller loads.

ReStrap tries to use reclaimed materials wherever possible, and The Loader uses car seatbelts for straps. We found the straps a little long, though, and ideally we’d like the padding to extend further up the shoulder for more comfort.

Overall, though, the bag is exceptionally well put together, with left/right shoulder options, organiser pockets and padding on the back.
