The Lifeasy - Sports Backpack Outdoor is a great backpack with many small, practical details that increase comfort. The cooling compartment and the USB connection are especially worth mentioning. The carrying comfort is also pleasant, as the straps adapt well to the shoulders and distribute the weight well. The hose-like shape is somewhat cumbersome, making it difficult to reach objects lying below.
The Lifeasy - Sports Backpack Outdoor is delivered in the ordered colour and size and arrives undamaged.
Optics, compartments and material
Optically this model is held in light grey and black. Inside the only large compartment is a grey fabric, which feels very robust. 3 small compartments for pens and the like are attached to the sides, as well as a small zipper compartment. The front compartment outside with the dimensions 30 x 20 x 5 cm is also lined in the fabric. The materials are made of 100% polyester, but feel high-quality and waterproof.
Furthermore, a bottle compartment is attached to the side, which adapts to the respective bottle width with an elastic band.
A cooling compartment is available on the side. However, there must be enough space in the backpack. Otherwise, it cannot be used.
The backpack is closed in the large compartment by a zipper and additional buttons and then a hood with additional press buttons. The small compartment only with a zipper. The hood of the large compartment also extends over the zipper of the smaller compartment, which increases rain resistance and theft protection.
On the outside of the backpack, there is an adapter where you can charge your mobile phone if you connect your own power bank from the inside.
If you spray the backpack with water, it will first roll off on both fabrics. If you wipe it later, the black fabric is drier than the grey fabric. The contents of the backpack remain dry.
In order to test the material resistance, we pulled the backpack over normal asphalt floors. After approx. 10 meters the backpack floor is only slightly dirty, hardly absorbs dirt and is not noticeably roughened. Cleaning is almost not necessary afterwards but is quick.
Comfort and handling
The backpack is comfortable to carry, even though it weighs 7 kg more. The well-padded straps are flat but wide and can be carried by wider as well as narrower shoulders. A chest strap is not available. The shorter the straps, the easier it is to carry the backpack because everything is closer to the back. There are no pads attached to the back, but the wearing comfort is not impaired.
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 is only lying down and cannot stand. When the backpack is full (7 kg in total), it remains upright and does not fall over.
The laptop compartment is slightly padded and slightly wider on one side than on the other so that different laptop thicknesses fit into the compartment and still don't wobble. The compartment 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 in the padded compartment. Even at 15 inches, the laptop looks out of the compartment. If you shake the laptop, it won't move because it sits very firmly in the pocket. 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.
Even if there are more things than the laptop in the backpack, the laptop is well protected and can be safely transported from one workplace 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 outside your home for a weekend. You get a lot in the backpack underneath and can transport it comfortably. However, it is difficult to get to the things below, as the backpack is very long and high and therefore tube-shaped. There is no way to get to the lower things from the middle of the backpack.
