Want to share my review of great and stylish urban backpack for riders from Italian company Tucano Urbano
I've figured out lack of reviews not only for this backpack, but for most TU products in both english and italian internet segments. However I love their products so much, that want to share my own review.
So, let's start Tucano Urbano Ninja Backpack (SKU 462)
- 18 liters water repellent Polyester backpack
At first glance it's very simple urban classic backpack. But devil hides in details and small features! Let's start from aesthetics and go to functionality
Tucano Urbano has it's own style across most products for riders REFLACTIVE ® SYSTEM - Visibility On Demand - reflective inserts in gear which improve safety but can be hidden when necessary to get more classic look.
In our case we have reflective stripe on bottom and TU logo on top
There is small pocket beside stripe and logo outside for small stuff like few pack of cigarettes or keys / docs.
There is small mobile phone pocket on the shoulder strap (iPhone 5 goes tight)
Pocket is reflective on one side and can be rotated to other, non-reflecting side. This is how it looks with camera flash
Shoulder straps are comfortable and flexible, can be fastened on chest and waist.
There are "anatomic" inserts on backpack end, which improves air circulation between back and backpack. So far I've tested only with outer clothing and backpack feels like native, really comfortable for me.
There is pocket on bottom with integrated waterproof cover, also there is anti-abrasion reinforcement on the bottom
Waterproof cover is high-viz yellow for maximum visibility in bad weather conditions and fully protects backpack from rain. TU logo is also reflective
There are 2 compartments, first one is for ability to insert CE D3O protection on the back, which can be bought separately
Also can be used as laptop compartment
Main trunk is quite big, also there are 2 small pockets, where you can store passport / earphones / cards or other small stuff
Also there are another big pocket for laptop / documents. 15 inch laptop fits well there.
Backpack comes with spider holder, which can also be used to fix the backpack to a scooter / bike or fix helmet to backpack
And few more photos:
I'm using backpack during everyday commute and it's most comfortable and stylish backpack I ever had. What is huge plus for me, it doesn't look like motorcycle-like monster-transformer backpack, but casual accessory with really nice features. For 80 euros (~88$) I highly recommend it
Thanks for reading this review. Questions are appreciated!
