Cabin Max Edinburgh Carry On backpack with padded notebook/ laptop/ipad compartment

Well, I’ve had a more formal, office style backpack to review, and this is very similar in construction but with a more casual feel. Perfect for students or those working in a less traditional atmosphere.

Its very light weight yet robust, in an attractive dark grey colour, in a tough polyester fabric. I think its suitable for office, students and holdays as its got such a versatile amount of space.
It’s incredibly adaptable to so many different uses, with padded straps for use as a back pack or carrying handles if you prefer the bag style. Its got great internal padding for tablets, phones, laptops, e-readers ( very importtant for me!) ect, endless zipped and velcro-ed pockets for keeping items safe. The last thing you want if you get to work, or your holiday destination is to find broken devices. When looking through it for the first time it feels as if each time you find one pocket you then see another. There are also a couple of pockets on the outside that are zipped but still easy to get to items for that you need quickly. All the zips have a large padded loop to them making it easy to open. It opens completely flat to the large inner space, making it easy to pack folded items whilst keeping them neat. The internal space is very good, and as its unstructured you can get a lot of luggage inside this. That makes it perfect for office, college, university use plus doubling up as an overnight/weekend rug sack.

Aquabourne EOS Commuter Cycling Backpack with integrated LED safety light (Black)

Perfect for students or those working in a less traditional atmosphere who cycle to work.

Its very light weight yet robust, in a black, tough, water resistant polyester fabric, with a fold over top to protect zip from water – great for UK weather when rain seems to be our default setting….the reflective safety lights are an excellent addition too. We didn’t notice them at first, thought it was simply a reflective strip and it took me a couple of mins to find how to get to the battery case. Its inside the side zipped compartment and had a small battery case with controls to set light to on, fast flash or slow flash. That gives another layer of safety when cycling or even walking along dark paths. anything that helps visibility is good IMO.

It’s incredibly  adaptable to so many different uses, with padded straps for use as a back pack with two mesh covered foam pads for extra comfort and an adaptable chest strap, or padded carrying handles if you prefer the bag style. Its got great internal padding for tablets ect, endless zipped and velcro-ed pockets for keeping items safe. It feels as if each time you find one pocket you then see another. There are also a couple that are open making it easy to get to items that you need quickly. The internal space is very good, and as its unstructured you can get a lot of luggage inside this.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
