Road Sack Backpack
We had a chance to use the Road Sack over a Sydney winter and came away impressed.
I’m not usually a fan of backpacks, as my love for scooters has always graced me with plenty of storage eliminating the need to carry anything on my back.
With the Road Sack the relationship between me and backpack has taken a change for the better. I found myself using this new little backpack in situations where I might normally use the bag hook on my scooter or a tie down on the rear rack. The Road Sack is not only unobtrusive but also weather proof, which takes away the concern of being caught in inclement weather, especially if the few extra items you’re taking are electrical.
The Road Sack almost feels invisible (if there is such a thing) meaning you wouldn't even know at times it’s on your back. The design is the key here, as it curves to fit your shape in a way that feels tailored especially for you. Key areas are padded to provide extra comfort and support. The back, shoulder straps, combined with the rigid frame make for a backpack that maintains its shape and intended design no matter what you have inside.
The room inside is not massive but it is sufficient, and it will take care of most daily errands with ease. A 15 inch laptop will fit snugly, and you then have multiple pockets to put smaller items safely tucked away. The flap on the front is an easy access area and I found this great for quick-get items like wallet and keys whilst pockets within the backpack itself will store notepads, folders etc. The compact Road Sack offers more than enough room if you have a scooter with underseat storage. In fact, when I was giving the Aprilia Mana a workout recently, I would use the Road Sack on most trips. In fact, its now become the ‘go–to’ item, and takes on the roll of safely carrying additional gear when extra filming and camera equipment is needed for a scootersales.com.au shoot.
The storage capacity is ideal, but another unique feature of the Road Sack is the high visibility design that will allow you to be seen and prominently stand out in low light, foggy, rainy or night time situations. This added peace mind does give you that feeling visibility just went up a notch when using the Road Sack.
Additional features include a waist strap, carry handle and a well thought out over-flap that stops water from getting through the sturdy zipper. This flap can be a little annoying at times getting in the way when zipping it all up but once you get the hang of it, it’s fine.
So whether a backpack is your thing or not the Road Sack is a simple and easy to use carry solution. So easy to use, you sometimes forget that this backpack is jam packed with features to suit the everyday rider. A well thought out concept for sure, and at only $99 + shipping the Road Sack will soon pay for itself in convenience.
