This is a bag designed for backpackers who wants to protect their backpacks when taking a flight or travelling by public transport which generally does not care about your equipment.
It’s made with a lightweight material, thicker than a normal rain cover and probably more durable. At top it has a piece of Velcro that allows you to join both sides of the bag and then roll it up easily, finally once you get it rolled you can close it by using a 20mm buckle made of plastic which has two rings one in each side that allows you to use a padlock. To transport it to the bus or where you want it has two carrying handles, one at the bottom and the other in one side.
You can pack it down in the pocket included inside the bag getting in a pack of just 21 cm in each side, so you can carry it easily in you backpack.
For this review I used my Osprey Atmos 65 AG which is full loaded, including trekking poles attached outside of the pack as you can see in the picture.
This bag comes in two sizes (60 and 90 liters). I got the bigger one and it is the best I think, not too loose and not too tight.
After giving a lot of nice features I’m going to talk about the cons:
I prefer one carrying handle at top instead of the bottom, because is easier to take it from that there.
It does not have any ID tag which will be useful in some situations.
And the least important is the color which comes only in black.
This is just my opinion so you can disagree with me.
Thanks again for letting me participate in this great forum.
