Not too big, not too small, not too fancy not too simple, Topo's Rover Pack is the Goldilocks of rucksacks. The Topo team wanted a pack that had a timeless silhouette but also wanted to make sure its functionality wasn’t stuck in the dark ages.
The Rover features a rugged 1000d Cordura® base for durability and a lightweight, water-resistant pack cloth upper with a cinch closure. Two exterior zipper pockets give quick access to smaller items, an inner laptop sleeve keeps computers secure and two side pockets for carrying water bottles or extra gear which can be cinched tight with the side compression straps. The low profile backpack straps are backed with a padded mesh, include accessory d-rings and are compatible with our sternum strap.
Topo Designs' Ballistic Nylon range is made from a densely woven, high-strength nylon fabric that offers exceptional abrasion, tear and puncture resistance. Stronger than regular Cordura, Ballistic Nylon fabric was originally developed for military body armour to ensure maximum durability and longevity.
“Ideal for everyday commuting - the perfect bag! The perfect bag for everyday commuting (cycling or public transport) - it's exactly what the product information suggests - not too big, not too small, expandable for when you need to stuff extra things in, and with compression straps for when you're not carrying much. Hard wearing cordura fabric in gorgeous colours. Just fits a 600ml water bottle in the side pocket.”
“A super duper backpack. I adore my new topo designs rover back pack. It's very comfortable and has ample options for storage of big and small items. The drawstring top allows very wide access, so all the contents are easily seen. It seems much larger in size than its purported 16. 2l. If i could marry this backpack, i would. The only thing it's missing is a sternum strap.”
“Perfect Bag. Incredible bag for everyday adventures/photography.”
“Great for carrying your life around. Superb build quality, plenty of compartments to stash your stuff, comfortable arm straps. Stop reading the reviews, and buy it!”
“Just perfect. Love everything about this bag. It looks good, feels good and is so practical and comfortable, not to mention durable. Did i say i love it!?!”
“Fantastic compact bag for work/school. I needed something that was as versatile and compact for my work laptop and documents for school. Front two connection straps are a bit too long for what i need it for and get in the way when i need to access the bottom pocket. Also, not sure if it was just me but the grab handle was black and not red when i received my bag. Pros: - compact and efficient with space - no silly velcro strap for the laptop compartment (makes access much quicker). - beautiful design - well made - top pocket awesome for quick access items. Cons: - front straps get in the way of accessing bottom pocket - side pocket for water bottle rather small (will fit a 600ml mount franklin bottle) - my grab handle was black not red!”
