I’m not sure where to start, but If you’re looking for the short answer - Yes! buy the citysafe backpack. It’s amazing. It’s one of those items I feel like I need to buy two off so that I have a replacement for one day.
I ordered my citysafe backpack before a holiday in the UK. The support team was BEYOND amazing, they gave me detailed invested information for ensure I get my bag at the hotel on the day I needed it. They followed up every step of the way to make sure I got my bag. I don’t think I have ever dealt with a more invested, competent and dedicated support department in my life.
Now the bag. What can I say, it’s really the perfect all rounder for light to moderately heavy packing to get around with day to day.
I was initially worried it’s too big for days where I don’t take a laptop and all my bits, but it doesn’t look bulky on even when lightly packed. When you do need to pack a lot, it takes a lot. I can comfortably fit a 16inch laptop, two puffers, umbrella, little cosmetic bag, cap, power bank, chargers, etc.
The pouches on the sides fit a large water bottle. I used one for water, and the other for my umbrella.
The straps are comfy all day long; we walked a lot on our recent trip, at least 15km a day, they never dug into me or felt like I needed to adjust them.
When getting on and off transport I carried my backpack by die top handles, which also helps take the strain off your back a bit if you’re loaded and need a bit of a break.
Im very impressed…
