RiutBag – the backwards backpack


The RiutBag is a backwards backpack. What exactly is that? It is a backpack where the zipper is located nearest to your back to ensure that your belongings remain safe and secure. This uniquely designed backpack has a foam-lined pocket that will carry a 15-inch laptop (the pocket is located against your back) and has elastic straps to hold the laptop in place. In addition, it has a reinforced top pocket to place your keys, wallet, and passport. This sleek looking bag is also made of a water resistant outer material, has adjustable chest and shoulder straps, pen holders, a padded handle and a nylon handle, and even has two hidden pockets in the shoulder straps (about the size of a credit card or drivers licence). With two recessed bottle holders, this backpack is complete. The photo above shows the large sized backpack (15-liter capacity) and is available from Ruit.com for £89.00 or about $133.74 USD. There is a smaller one that has a 10 liter capacity for £79.00 or $118.71 USD. Both sizes also come in a black color although those are currently available for pre-order only and will be delivered in February 2016. Please visit the website for more information.

    Holy Crap – $133 for a backpack? No thanks.

    Deuter makes backpacks that open in the back also. At a much more reasonable price.
