Quechua Backpack

Uncategorized

Got fedup of carrying a large backpack when i don't carry a laptop anymore. so decided to get this yesterday.
Had gone to Decathlon(Sarjapur Rd. Bangalore) with a colleague to pick up some collapsible tent poles for one of our own tent prototypes..
While there i had a look at the backpacks.

They had a few medium size ones. the larger ones where large enough to fit a 15"laptop(though thats not what they were built for) basically they were for camping, etc..
full list here

So anyway i looked at the smaller ones. there were 2 that i liked:
DIOSAZ 5 RACING

Capacity : 5 l / 390 g + 1 x 2 l water pouch.
Efficiency : Enveloping straps for stability. Chest strap.
Easy storage : 1 outer pocket, whistle included.
Composition : outer fabric: 100% PU-coated PA; lining: 100% PU-coated PA; padding: 100% polyethylene foam.

and
DIOSAZ 10 RACING

Capacity : 10 l / 550 g + 1 x 2 l water pouch.
Composition : outer fabric: 100% PU-coated PA; lining: 100% PU-coated PA; padding: 100% polyethylene foam.
Efficiency : Enveloping straps for stability. Chest strap.
Easy storage : 2 belt pockets. Pole-holder. Whistle included.

Both are meant to be smaller capacity bags, designed for running.
I decided to go with the larger one coz it had more pockets for some of the small stuff i carry. also i had doubts about an A4 size Sketchpad fitting in the DIOSAZ 5 and not getting crumpled.

here are some more pics from the decathlon site

i just wanted something small and lightweight that i can carry a couple of sketchbooks and color pencils..etc.. for my daily commute.. as well as the occasional weekend wandering 🙂

Pros:
-Love the way it distributes the weight evenly
-Color and textures are good
-Just enough space for a light load
-included water bladder and tube are much appreciated
-included rain cover is very useful and buttons on well.
-side pockets have excellent placement and are ideal for stuff you want to keep handy like mp3 players, point and shoot cameras, inhalers, etc.

Cons:
-no other color options
-a few pockets on the inside would have been great for organising stuff..
