Trouble finding backpack
29th January, 2009
Hi, I'm struggling to find a backpack which is around the 50-60L size that has a zipped main compartment so I can lock it.
I live in the UK and would like one below £100.
I've found plenty of good sized bags but they all have drawstring to close it. Is it essential to have zips so it can be locked? The only zipped ones I can find are about 75L which is way too big.

I had the same problem and ended up just buying a drawstring backpack.
I found this method works well to lock it.

Have you looked at the Osprey Porter series of packs - travelpack style bags that come in 46, 65 and 90 litre sizes. They have a fairly simple design compared to some packs but have a useful external compression system to minimise the size of the pack.
Not really meant for heavy trekking, but my Porter 46 has served me well while travelling.
I've actually just noticed a Lifeventure Kativa 60L travelpack reduced to £60 on Itchy Feet as well. Not sure of quality etc, but they have bricks and mortar stores too, so you could check it out.

Thank you guys. I quite like the innovative idea for locking drawstring bags!
