Backpack? Sling bag? Cross-body bag? Picard calls it a mobile backpack and I simply love it!
I’ve been looking for a compact bag to bring with me on my travels. My criteria were:
- Decent price point
- Usable and easily accessible pockets
- Hidden pockets
- Nylon zip
The compact and stylish Picard mobile backpack ticks all the right boxes. The price point was great because BHG was offering 30 percent off all men’s items.
As a frequent traveller, I appreciate the conveniently located pockets where I can stuff my necessities such as passport, boarding pass and credit cards.
Why nylon zip? I have dry skin which means that I can get cut easily. A nylon zip is kinder to the skin than the metal version which has been known to slice my flesh.
I brought the bag with me on my recent trip to the Philippines and it went everywhere with me.
On the plane, it takes up just a little space under the seat, leaving room to stretch my legs. It was also stuffed with a water bottle, snacks and a book without looking bloated.
While in the Philippines, I had to open my bag for security check whenever I enter a building — hotel or mall. All it takes is just a swivel to bring the bag from back to front and voila, the main zip can be easily opened for checking.
Verdict: This bag is perfect for travel.
