I’ve been on the look out for a new backpack for some time, so it was good news when Trendhim got in touch about their rucksack range. I picked out the Lemont Blue Limited Edition Foldable Lazy Bear Rucksack which is a lovely shade of blue. I’m not sure my pictures have the colour quite true. It’s closer to navy than I think I’ve captured.
It’s a lightweight backpack from Lazy Bear is which folds up into its own pocket. This makes it a great choice for packing inside a larger bag, so you can use it as a daysack when you get to your travel destination. It could come in handy if you end up coming back with more stuff than when you went. Whilst this is a nice touch, I think I’ll mostly use it as a bag for a short break. It should meet airline requirements as hand luggage and I prefer to carry my luggage in a rucksack on that sort of trip as it’s easier than a case.
This water-resistant backpack for men features adjustable straps, a large main compartment and a deep front pocket. Secure zippers keep your stuff safe while life happens. There are also open side pockets.
Inside the main compartment there is large zipped pocket which is full width and about half depth. This is great for a bit of organisation or some added security. The large spacious main compartment can fit in a lot of kit. I prefer a larger main area for luggage rather than too much organisation as I think that way you can fit more in. I prefer to add my own organisation in terms of packing cubes. On the outside there is a large full width, half depth, zipped pocket which would be great for travel documents or anything you needed quickly. The side pockets would fit a slim water bottle or an umbrella. If I’m being picky I’d say it would be nice for these to be slightly bigger, with a bit of elastication, to hold bigger water bottles, but it’s only a small point.
The straps are comfortably padded and adjustable to fit your body. They are perfect for carrying the sort of weights, you tend to carry for a weekend away. At the top of the bag there’s a grab handle, which is great for quick pick ups. There’s also a detachable tag with a D looped fastening. You could easily hang something from this if you wanted.
Despite being lightweight, the bag does still feel very sturdy and good quality. I love the bright flash of orange from the covered zip pulls which added a touch of class. It’s a rugged, good looking rucksack which looks very good after a few weeks of use and I think I’ll get a good long life out of this rucksack. It’s good to know it’s water resistant too. I’ve not tried this out, but I’m confident it would be fine in a shower, but might get wet in a downpour.
Overall I’m loving this Trendhim backpack and I think I’ll get plenty of use of it because it’s such a good size and so practically designed.
Disclosure: I was sent a rucksack by Trendhim for the purposes of this review.
