Learn to use the features of your RiutBag so you get the most out the design. Feel comfortable dropping your laptop into the cushioned laptop holder on the go, use the latest models' D-pocket to access your smartphone, keys and passport on the go. 

How much fits in a max-carry on backpack?

How much fits in a 25 litre RiutBag? RiutBag designer, Sarah, took all this her R25 on a 30 day trip from Europe to New Zealand, with no check in luggage. If you want to use the maximum 55x40x20cm allowance on onboard, check the R25 has the right capacity and features for your airlines.


Backpack with smartphone holder? Meet the RiutBag D-pocket 

Give your pockets a break! Use your new D-pocket to store the small important items you need most. If the next thing you're doing is opening the front door, store your keys in the D-pocket. Keep your smartphone there and slide out when you need it. At the airport, keep your passport in the D-pocket to quickly access and stow rather than holding it in your hand at all times when you're travelling. 


Laptop backpack: easy access at airport security

RiutBag safe backpack lets you quickly access and stow your laptop at airport security. You don't need to open your whole backpack. From centrally placed zips, open the zips to 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock, slip your laptop out and back in at the end. Extra tip: I use the RiutBag's top pocket to put my liquids bag. If I'm going on a long haul flight, I tend to keep the liquids - toothpaste, face wash, deodorant - near me on the flight so I don't have to get my bag out of the luggage bins above.

Roll away dangling straps on the RiutBag, safe backpack

Extra strap length is useful - especially for taller and broader backpack users - but when left dangling, it looks unslightly and can get caught when you're in a hurry. On the RiutBag, adjust your straps to the length you require, roll the rest away and secure with elastic. Secure, smart and simple. RiutBag is the backwards laptop backpack for calm city travel.

Laptop backpack with chest strap: adjustable and removable 


Chest straps are useful to help you distribute the weight you're carrying in your RiutBag, backwards backpack. You can adjust your chest straps up and down, and allow more length on the RiutBag; the chest strap should be aproximately armpit level. If you don't want to use them at all, simply remove by sliding them all the way to the top of the piping. Tip: store them in the zipped pocket inside your RiutBag just in case you do want to reattach them.


Non-adhesive backpack reflectors: RiutBands

Four colourful and reflective RiutBands are included with each RiutBag R25, R15 and R10. Using just one or all of them, you can personalise your RiutBag or turn them the other way to add visibility for cyclists and pedestrians who wish to be seen at night. Attach the RiutBands to your top handle with the snap fastening. They are soft enough to keep there whilst using your handle normally. RiutBag is the backwards laptop backpack for calm, secure city travel.
