RiutBag is an urban backpack, designed backwards for calm, secure city travel. Every new edition of the RiutBag is powered by user feedback, solving the big and small problems that real commuters and city travellers face. Learn to use the features of your RiutBag R10 and R15 so you get the most out the design.
See how much you can fit in a 15 or 10 litre RiutBag, feel comfortable dropping your laptop into the cushioned laptop holder on the go, use the 2016 models' D-pocket to access your smartphone, keys and passport on the go.
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.
Four colourful and reflective RiutBands are included with each 2016 model RiutBag 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.
The D-pocket lets you access small yet important items. On your way home, make sure your keys are in your D-pocket. Without removing your backpack, open the D-pocket, grab your keys and walk through your front door. The RiutBag is designed to help you adapt to city life, commuting, leaving home, getting home and the things we really do.
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.
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.
What are the mesh curtains for in the new RiutBag R15? They are a new idea to help RiutBag users hold their packed belongings in place. Either clipped them shut to hold your things in, or fold them away when you don't need them.
The R10, the slimmer RiutBag, does not have this feature.
RiutBag laptop compartment has a cushioned base so you can simply drop your laptop in when you're in a rush. The laptop cushion sits on thick Lycra, above another layer of foam and, finally, a waterproof and abrasion proof TPU base. Your laptop cannot make contact with the ground or get scratched in a RiutBag :)
