Hey guys, happy new month and hello summer! I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine and having a good time. For me, June marks the end of my time in SPAIN! 10 months have gone by too quick! Anyway, more on that later
This post is long overdue but better late than never. I promised the review of the backpack I used for my Spain travel and so here is i
I purchased the Mountain Warehouse Ventura 40L Litre Medium Walking Hiking Sport Rucksack Backpack Back Pack Bag Lime One Sizefrom Amazon for £39.99. I remember the shipping was fairly ok (standard if you ask me).
I love the colour. A basic lime green and grey combination. Nothing special but I really like it. I had doubts the backpack would be enough for a 2-week trip as I tend to overpack, nevertheless, the 40L was adequate for everything! When it comes to compartmentalisation, this backpack does it for me! I love the shoe compartment at the bottom. Handy so that your clothes are not dirty from your shoes. There is also a ‘sleeve’ inside the main compartment which was handy for travel docs., t was easy to reach when I need to take out a document!
There are also pockets on the sides where I kept small sized clothes e.g. bikinis, underwear, socks etc.
Extra pockets on the top cover, both inside and out. handy for smaller items or travel plugs/accessories.
Compression- The placement of the straps worked for me. After packing and strapping, my pack was very compact and not too bulky!
I love the hip belt and the location is perfect- right on the hips. The mesh back allowed my back to breathe whilst carrying the bag in that heat!
Two water bottle holders on each side.
I love this bag! It also comes with a waterproof rain cover which can be used to cover the whole bag. I haven’t used this yet as I didn’t encounter any rain whilst travelling
Its worth it!
UPDATE- 9/3/2018- The bag is in excellent condition which no signs of wear. I have used it quite a few times since travelling in Spain and I still love it the same. definitely recommend this bag.
