The Deuter - Giga Backpack is very comfortable to wear despite the harder padding. This is supported by the hip belt and the chest strap, which can be locked. The laptop is well protected in its own pocket close to the back and all other items can be placed in the other compartments. The u-shaped zippers make it easy to get your hands on everything.
The material is very robust and waterproof and therefore the care is not very complicated.
The Deuter - Giga Backpack is delivered in the ordered colour and size and arrives undamaged.
Optics, compartments and material
Optically this model is kept in a black tone. Inside a grey fabric is sewn in. The compartment for the laptop is in its own large compartment and is equipped with padding. A narrower compartment is attached behind it and can be used for a tablet, but is not quite as padded as the laptop compartment.
In a further large compartment 2 small flat compartments are additionally fastened. The front compartment is quite narrow and offers space for pens and other small things. In addition, there are left and right pockets for drinks bottles.
The materials are made of 100% polyester, but feel high-quality and waterproof. There is no cooling compartment.
The backpack is closed by a u-shaped zipper at the large compartment. The closures are smooth and simple.
The fabric does not absorb any water at all when spraying water and it simply rolls off. The zipper is waterproof at first, but leaks with larger amounts of water.
In order to test the material resistance, we pulled the backpack over normal asphalt floors. After approx. 10 meters the backpack floor is only dirty, but not noticeably roughened. The cleaning is very easy afterwards.
Comfort and handling
The carrying comfort of the Deuterucksack is very good, even if the total weight of 7 kg is slightly higher. The hard padded straps are flexible and can be carried by wider as well as narrower shoulders. At first, the straps and the back cushion seem to be very hard, but it lies down and the backpack is easy to carry. The shorter you pull the straps, the easier it is to carry the backpack, because everything is closer to the back.
Since there is a large gap between the cushions, the air can circulate well.
There is also a lap belt and chest belt that bring the backpack closer to the body and make it more comfortable to carry.
In order to check the stability, we have placed the backpack once empty and once full. If possible, it should not have to lean against the backpack so that you can park it in a dirtier or wet area without dirtying it from the front or on the carrier side.
If the backpack is not full, it only lies flat on the ground and cannot stand. When the backpack is full (7 kg in total), it remains upright and does not tilt to any side.
The laptop compartment is well padded and protects the laptop as it is packed separately from the rest. The maximum size of the laptop is 15 inches, everything else doesn't fit into the padded compartment. If you shake the laptop, it moves only slightly because it sits very firmly in the bag. The fact that the laptop lies directly against the back makes it easy to carry the backpack, even if the laptop is a little heavier.
Since the laptop has its own compartment, the laptop is very well protected and can be safely transported from one workstation to another.
The backpack can be used for anything where you need to carry something. Whether it's shopping, school or university files or just the things you spend for a weekend away from home. Space is very ample with 28 l and well sorted. The u-shaped zipper opening is practical and you can easily reach all objects.
