A zippered front pocket helps keep your wallet, purse, keys and other vitals at hand. We’ve added a loop at the rear for easy hanging.

SQUID is rated 4.8696 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Bought this beauty a few months ago and pretty much use it everyday. It has definitely become my favourite bag. 18 cans of beer? No worries, there was even room for more, but as I was riding I didn't want to be too unbalanced. 8L of goon? Too easy, you can even chuck em in with the boxes. Perfect for going to the gym, can chuck all my uni stuff inside it and it feels great on my back. I'll probably buy another one the next time I'm another crumpler bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A backpack that folds ,not a folding backpack Bought two squids a couple of years ago ,one for myself and one for my son Wanted them as easily packable back up bags when traveling  They are so spacious ,light ,cool and comfortable to wear even when heavily loaded that they have become daily use bags and primary bags for overnight trips as space and weight is a concern for carry on when boarding regional airlines  When lightly loaded you are unaware of their presence You do have to use common sense when packing heavy ,put softer articles against your back ,but the rope shoulder straps are comfortable enough to wear for hours when hiking and carrying several liters of water My son has used his to carry text books to school on many occasions and neither bag is showing any signs of wear and tear These are the best drawstring backpacks on the market ,I hope crumpler continues to make them for many years Crumpler recently increased the colour choices which is great but unfortunately they changed the zipper pull to one of lesser quality and replaced the cloth crumpler patch with a rubber patch which looks slightly cheaper Crumpler please keep these bags simple and maintain the high quality  Everyone should own at least one squid ,whilst it is not a specialized backpack ,it certainly is not a compromized backpack

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super useful I bought the squid a couple of months ago and it's been very useful. I like to take it out when I'm on foot or PT and can put my handbag in it after work to make the walk/transport more comfortable. I also use it when I'm out with my toddler son and it stows plenty of his numerous accoutrements. Plus as a back pack I like it's contemporary, minimal look and it's easier for me to know everything's stowed away on my back when I need to chase after my son!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but Great! The perfect definition of less is more: Comfortable, Simple and Really Convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliantly versatile for kids Purchased for kids to travel to Europe. Bright colours kept them in sight. collapses down to nothing to store in luggage or stuff under the seat while flying. Boys now using for swimming lessons. My teen uses it for his street skating. No wear & tear yet & just chuck in the washing machine. Have also given it for kids gifts too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel pack Absolutely fabulous bag. Bought them to travel through South America for my husband and I. Very strong and worked super well on our backs. Security is a must whilst traveling in South America and it was perfect to keep our items in during the day on our backs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for travelling Wasn't quite sure about the crumpled look of this Crumpler but must say 2 weeks into our European trip find it is invaluable. It has been a beach bag, a laundry bag, an airport carry all, a daily tote, …. Strong, classy and non-intrusive. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when you need to travel light! I travel in remote Australia a bit and you need to travel light... But often unexpected purchases need to be made. There is heaps of room in the bag and great that it has a backpack style, so your hands are still free.
