Rancid backpack by Bagaboo, your style, your bag!

You love to ride, but usually you need to transport a lot of things: laptop, helmet, jacket, documents, sunglasses, wallet, keychain.... and you don't want to use a classic messenger bag....well, probably, the product today we will review it's your product...

Rancid Backpack by Bagaboo
 As we say, today we will make the review of the Rancid Backpack by Bagaboo, the last model created by Bagaboo from Budapest (Hungary) for urban riders. In this case, we have chosen the colors, because one of the best things of this brand is that you choose the model of bag you want and after this you choose the colors of the bag, for that, it's important to visit their page of colors to configure your bag. In our Rancid Backpack we have chosen three colors:
  • Middle strip: Cordura Turquoise
  • Rest of the bag: Cordura Black
  • Trim color: Apple green
In the next picture you can see the tests we have done with many products you usually carry in your day to day as you move around the city: jacket, cap, sunglasses, bikelights, umbrella, folders, portable hard disk, laptop, wallets, water bottle...

Testing the capacity of the Rancid Backpack by Bagaboo

The rancid is the smallest bagaboo backpack – designed for carrying your camelback inside, on those mountain biking or trekking tours. It has a padded back and the similar shoulder straps as our larger backpacks – that means comfort for your shoulders. There is a chest strap for extra stability if you need, and compression straps on the side to carry larger things in the side mesh pockets.
A reflective stripe on the front of the bag and a blinky holder helps you to be visible on the road. With the long, water repellent zipper you can open the bag from the top to the bottom – you can easily put things in and get out.
By default, there is no inner tarpaulin layer in this bag to keep it lightweight – but this also affects its waterproofness. This bag is not waterproof in heavy rain, we call it water repellent. If you need waterproofness and you don't mind having a heavier bag, you can order the inner waterproof layer as an extra option.

They offer this bag with 2 different outer colour, it looks nice this way, but you can always have one with just one solid colour of course.

There are 2 mesh pockets on the outer sides of the Rancid, and with the compression straps, you can use these mesh pockets to carry long items that would not fit into the bag.
An outer zipper pocket with a hidden zipper can store your smaller items, and there in an inner zipper pocket for the things that needs to be at a safe place.

Sizes

Capacity is given after the flat dimensions of the bag – if you fill it, it can hold more.
(width on top/width on bottom/height/depth)
43/28/11/22cm, ca. 20 liters
17″x11″x4.4″x8.7″ – ca. 1220 cubic inches
