Review for Customized Medium VELO Backpack
Leslie Van Orsdel – Verified Buyer
I love this bag as much as I thought I would! I saw it on a stranger and promptly ordered one. Heavy duty quality everything but end result is lightweight.
One suggestion: the robust zipper leaves a bit of a gap where the pulls join. This might just be a dream but if the same zipper could be made to close more snugly, the waterproofing would be perfect.
I also would love some way to creatively and securely attach a water bottle to the outside so it would not take up inside room. Don't really like to 'biner it to the back tabs as then it swings annoyingly.
The real and only reason I did not give 5 stars: the standard straps are short and this is gonna be a problem in winter when I wear puffy jackets. I am at the end of the strap wearing it over t-shirts now. I am a 5'6" average size woman with short arms so I can't imagine how this works for a big guy! I'll try it and I guess if it doesn't fit I will send it in and ask Rickshaw to customize it for me in that way. I really like the seatbelt type straps generally. Not as bulky as regular padded backpack.
