New Backpacks for the Winter
We are very excited about these new backpacks from Berlin brand Ucon Acrobatics. We've been on the hunt for quite some time for an awesome bag to carry our laptops in, that will also be able to withstand a wet Irish winter. And we finally found them! Not only are they robust, practical and waterproof, they also look really cool and they're super comfortable. We love them, so we hope you like them too!
Jennie went for the Lotus style Hajo backpack, which has a sleek, olive green, outer surface, manufactured from rubberised, phthalat-free PU. Inside there's a lovely soft fleece lining for keeping your belongings free from scratches. The roll-top close system means you can scale the capacity of the bag when you need to, whilst there's also a zip access on one of the sides. There's 3 external pockets for your umbrella, bottle of water or bike lock, whatever you need quick access to. The back panel has PET-board enforcement and padding for extra comfort. There's also padding on the straps and the bottom part for extra stability. The high quality neoprene laptop compartment fits a screen up to 15.4“ and has two additional mesh pockets for phone and wallet. Pure in form and function with no pointless frills, this backpack has got your back!
Annie chose the original Hajo. a durable canvas fabric bag with a water repellent finish on eco-friendly silicone. It has all the wonderful features as the Lotus above, in a heavy, robust canvas roll-top that makes you feel completely confident in it's waterproofing abilities. This bag can take on a rainy cycle through Dublin any day! Designed in Berlin by Ucon Acrobatics, a lifestyle brand anchored by creativity, quality tailoring, innovative appliqués and ethical production, we're sure this bag won't let you down.
Lauralee picked the Stealth Till Bag, a slick and stylish, lightweight, waterproof bag that can be used as a handbag or a backpack. The main opening closes with a waterproof zip, and there's an internal zip pocket for keeping your phone or passport in. It has cross-seam stitching at the handles for strength, and the shoulder straps adjust for extra comfort.
