An Insightful Spin Bag Review:
Spacious 30l Backpack For Daily Life, Sports And Travel
by Mel from appgefahren.de (translated)
Not so long ago my colleague Fabian presented his favourite travel backpack. And finally, I have found my own favourite that perfectly meets all my requirements: the IAMRUNBOX Spin Bag.
The roll top backpack of the Swedish brand is available in two sizes, having 18l volume or 30l volume. Furthermore, you can choose between three different colours - grey, black and orange. The small version costs 164,99€ whereas the big one that is perfect for traveling is valued at 209,99€. Not really a great bargain but the varied functions of the Spin Bag definitely account for all the money spent.
Last week I got the chance to have a closer look at the 30l version of the Spin Bag and would like to briefly share my impressions of that flexible backpack with you. For the test I chose the simple black version. In case you love standing out the orange version is perfect for you and the grey version is great for everyone.
Measurements are aligned with cabin luggage size
The IAMRUNBOX Spin Bag is a classic roll-top backpack that allows you to adjust the volume of the backpack according to what you need to carry. It doesn’t matter how you are rolling the closure, you can always use the clasps on the sides of the backpack. As an alternative, you can close the backpack with the claps of the roll-top closure without involving the sides.
Furthermore, the features of the Spin Bag sound impressive:
- The material is water-resistant, protecting the things in the main compartment from rain and snow (during my test a bigger rainstorm while cycling was not a problem at all).
- There is an extra compartment in the back panel for laptops up to 15’’ and a ventilated bottom compartment to store for example wet jackets or dirty shoes.
- The string attachment system on the outside of the backpack allows you to store things like clothes, yoga mats, or other bigger things.
- The waist, as well as the sternum straps, are removable and adjustable.
With the measurements of 53 x 32 x 15 cm and a weight of 1.100 grams the Spin Bag is great cabin luggage for most of the common airlines.
The main compartment provides enough space, including some smaller internal pockets, a compartment for iPads up to 10’’, a key ring, and pockets for pens. A small pocket on the outside enables easy access to the phone, wallet, and co.
Unfortunately, this backpack doesn’t have side pockets for example for water bottles but there is enough space in the inside of the bag.
A lot of comfort and high-quality materials
During the last weeks, I used the IAMRUNBOX Spin Bag among others for my weekly grocery shopping and the transport of some technical equipment for an interview. And how shall I put it?
The backpack is not only a space miracle but also fully packed a very convenient companion on your back - even without adding the waist straps. Padded shoulder straps, sturdy material, and adjustable waist straps ensure a nice carrying experience. Furthermore, the padded back panel is supporting your back.
The IAMRUNBOX Spin Bag is a great companion for your daily life, no matter if you are using it for school, university, work or shopping. The measurements make it the perfect cabin luggage for a weekend getaway. High-quality materials in combination with nice features and add-ons like the reflective string attachment system on the outside or the comfortable fit make the Spin Bag highly recommendable.
