Son wanted a comfortable backpack for college & this is perfect for the job
So far this has been used on holiday to take a picnic out and for a city day trip, at home for walks and long journeys to hospital appointments (5 hours of travel) also to carry laptops/tablets and work equipment, and general day to day life. Brilliant size for someone who likes all their bits accessible, but also wants some storage space. Seriously considering buying the 30l for my other half to use on his commute to and from work.
Using this bag for work. Carrying laptop etc. The bag is neat and sturdy. Little compartments are extremely useful. I love the clips for attaching my vpn key and locker keys. Delighted with my purchase.
I am using one week, and I am very satisfied. it is very comfortable, breathable but it seams it is made of average quality materials. I did not try, but I think it will not hold 30- 40 kg as described, and will not last 10 year of everyday use. But it just seems to me. If it does I will change my stars to 5. :)
Looks great and I love the design and layout of the pockets it's a great looking bag and really functional for my needs.
However... That is where the positives end. It is really uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, especially when containing heavy-ish loads, as I found out in London when I stored my DSLR in the bag. Pain is very concentrated in the neck which is unfortunate.
Thanks for your feedback on the Escape backpack. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the comfort. The problem could potentially be caused by the set-up of the straps as I have seen it with many other backpacks previously. This blog (https://www.quechua.co.uk/advice/how-adjust-your-backpack-a_84231) demonstrates how to adjust if necessary. Nevertheless, if you remain dissatisfied with the bag you may still exchange it at any of our stores if purchased within the last 365 days. Chris Allen UK Market Manager DECATHLON
