    The screenshot is of a inflatable lounger. However, I can confirm that the bag shows as US$9.48 for me too.

    I bought one of these as a schoolbag. It realy is just a schoolbag. Definately not a backpack for hiking - thats just marketing!

    •  

      have you received it? Just wondering is it physically quite thin? Nott something you could handle a bit of weight on a daily basis without the straps and sewing starting to come undone?

      • +5 votes

        Yes i have it. I havent tried to carry anything heavy other than some books. Haven't used it long enough to comment about durability. Honestly though its a pretty ordinary bag imho and i doubt it will last me years. Thats ok for me as just wanted sonething for ordinary use. At this price if it lasts for a year i would be totally happy.

        Edit -yes the material is thin. It is a typical mass produced generic made in china schoolbag. Would you expect anything else at this price though??

    I have a similar backpack (from Aliexpress, kinda similar design, construction, capacity of 40l etc. from what I saw from the DD4 pics and description).

    This one: goo.gl/5UbaQH

    I have used this one on 3 backpacking trips through South East Asia, and India. I have spent roughly 35-40 days on each trip. Keep in mind that I travel reasonably light; but I usually take 2-3 shorts and 3-4 singlets, a tee, and a dress shirt; toileteries, a 7" tablet, gopro and small equipment, Samsung mirrorless camera; chargers for all electronics. All this has always fit in the backpack. Most times I get small souvenirs here and there (eg. bangles and keychains, local jewellery etc.) and have never had to leave anything behind (although it is a tight fit by the end of the trip). Please note that I plan ahead keeping in mind the limitation of how much I can carry in my backpack.

    It has a padded laptop section in the main zipper. I usually use that for storing documents and stuff securely. In the main area, I usually store all my clothes (neatly rolled) and stacked as to utilise every little ounce of space. In the front zipper, there are a couple sections where I store my chargers and stuff I might need to access easily, headphones, etc. I roll up a little plastic bag with my toothbrush, small <150g toothpaste, contact lenses for emergency etc. and that all easily fits there too. There is a little hidden zipper on the top in which i usually store loose change and small lock and key.

    In the front there is a little flap, with an adjustable strap, in which sometimes i put things that i will need urgently and need continuous access, eg. crossing the border by land into Cambodia, I needed to have printouts of my e-visa etc. and I put them there. Not much space here but it can fit a little book you might read on a plane, your passport etc. But remember this is pretty much out in the open so security is an issue if you the bag is not in front of you.

    The Sides have two little elastic bottle holders. I usually have a toilet paper roll in one (asia lol), and a rolled up thin towel in the other. adjustable straps help keep things in place. Will fit a big gatorade bottle, but remember that if your bag is too full, this might not be that easy.

    Sorry about all the useless info about how i travel (or if it helps anyone, then thats great!); but to sum up, this is my main travelling backpack. Looks small but anytime I come back and unpack everything onto our bed, the gf is always amazed at how much stuff this little bag can hold.

    At this price, Im going to get this one from DD4 no questions, thanks OP.

    Recommended for anyone who travels LIGHT, "backpacker" styles, HEAPS space for that purpose; will be surprised.

    Not recommended for anyone who likes to bring a lot of stuff while travelling.

    Again- mine is the one from aliexpress, NOT this one, but seems remarkably similar to the one OP posted; so I hope this post helps someone.

      great review. I take it this satisfies the size restrictions for carry-on luggage?

      • +3 votes

        Yeah, no worries. Jetstar is 56cm (height) x 36cm (width) x 23cm (depth).

        I always break the depth at the fat part of my bag but no troubles…yet. It's just risky coming back when the laundry hasn't been done yet and you have 5 kg of sweaty shirts.

      how do you find the straps on you shoulders when the bag is at the heaviest.

      I have a 35L karrimor air space rucksack (5 years) and find that when I pack too much it really kills my shoulders.

      Looking for something to replace it with as its getting on but want something that isn't going to slice my shoulders because of the non existent padding.

      • +3 votes

        Mate, you should look for a bag with a hipbelt. Then you can carry the load down lower and your shoulders will thank you for it.

      •  

        straps (and even the back) are padded and reasonably comfortable. dont expect memory foam levels of comfort but it takes about an hour or so after it starts bothering me. obviously the heavier, the more weight on your shoulders, but it doesnt "cut" into your skin as the padding cushions pretty reasonably.

        Note: it does get pretty sweaty though, especially the heavier you get (I wear singlets), so thats a little annoying but defo not a deal breaker.

        on a 0-10 level, 0 being unbearable pain and 10 being comfortable af, the padding brings it to a decent 7.

    The price has gone up a dollar:

    Discount Price: US $10.42-US $10.43 /Piece

    But it looks like this may be a differently page for the same product for US $9.98

    http://www.dd4.com/goods/Largecapacity-Outdoor-Climbing-Pack...

    And another page for US $9.49

    http://www.dd4.com/goods/Largecapacity-Outdoor-Climbing-Pack...

    A bit difficult to keep track of this!

  •  

    It looks good for the price.

  •  

    Nice price for the backpack but it is definitely not suitable for any decent hiking or carrying heavy loads. The lack of a hipbelt is a big drawback. Anyone who has a pack with a hipbelt and uses it (properly) will find that it is so much more comfortable. The hipbelt also stops the bag from moving around on your back.

    I also have similar one. Definitely keep in mind that it is made of cardboard and is not a real hiking backpack. That being said: I love mine! It weights nothing so it is an awesome hand luggage for plane trips. I can be packed in it for two weeks within 7-10kg limit and size limits (because it is totally flexible). You can say it is shit, but this is bestshit I ever bought and still working after a year of heavy use!

      This looks to be a decent option for a bag too, albeit a bit smaller. Good find.

    Can anyone comment if this can carry medium weight loads? I am just looking for something for work, usually after a lunch box and a few books or papers, other reading materials etc the bag can weigh a couple of kgs easily. Add in battery packs etc. I find the material of bags tend to hold but over time the straps meeting the bag material tend to either rip off, or other fraying starts to occur along seams.

    I assume this isn't too heavy duty or constructed to stay intact with heavier weights (rather than a few light inclusions)?

    I also assume there is no real alternative to the whole 'back sweat' thing from having a backpack on most of the day when on holidays? I did get a bag in Taiwan which had 'ridges' on the back so that air can pass through inbetween, but the bag isn't the most comfortable, and feels abit rigid on the shoulder straps. Am hoping someone would have invented an inexpensive backpack of decent size (as I Like to pack a lot of reading materials, battery packs, all my stuff etc. ) that minimizes the heat buildup and sweat along your back etc.

    •  

      40 litres sounds over kill for a few books and a lunch box. For perspective, you can get a 28 litre pack that can fit a 17" laptop.

      Like you said, this pack looks like the straps will break after a few months, where you said, because the top sits away from your back so the horizontal canvas strap (which your shoulder straps connect to) is going to be constantly pulling against the far weaker material that covers the back of the this bag. You can see how it sits in this photo:

      http://image.dd4.com/data/attached/ablum_70034/20170216/2017...

      But it's $10. Buy 10 of them and throw them away when they start to fail.

      If you want something the same size that can hold stupid heavy loads, try the below for ~$200:

      http://www.kathmandu.com.au/camp-and-hike/packs-and-bags/pac...

      It is far better than a normal bag for sweat, but it will get warm and you will sweat if you walk fast or jog. The ridges are soft foam so if you load it heavy (~25kg) they will do nothing and you will sweat like it is a normal bag. It has bars down it's back which could help if you have a few phone books. It also has a zip going over the top like a normal bag instead of just a draw string at the top like many heavy duty bags.

    Just wondering but how do people come across these china site saleS? Are people on dd4.com and other websites (aliexpress etc) already searching and they come across it?

    When I was in asia in Jan, in Taiwan there were many bag stores. Same for south korea. I find a lot of Asian countries i.e. hong kong, Malaysia etc. have their backpacks originate from either korea, Taiwan or made in china. Sometimes Korean ones are designed but made in china. Either way they are all a lot more stylish and affordable than similar day to day backpacks you get here (of similar size to the one for sale in this post - see the pictures of the guy carrying it on his back - as opposed to those little small ones that barely hold one or two things and they're full).

    Anyway the point in saying all this - has anyone found a decent site that sells all these popular Taiwan, south Korean etc. backpack brands?? Something independent? We have a few bag sites here who sell their Samsonite's, high sierra etc,. but would hope one can access the more 'fashionable' style backpacks available in asia?

    Most of time it is just unheard of china brands. If anyone has a good online website that stocks these would appreciate being linked!

    Thanks

    I find cheap backpacks a false economy. You pay more in physio to fix your back after! You can stuff your back just as easily using it around the city - a proper bag isn't just for hiking.

    Pay up and get one with a hipbelt. Osprey is my recommendation - no questions asked lifetime replacement warranty. They are light-weight, but you get a new one every time you destroy it.

      This is why I buy Mrs muncan large handbags so I can travel bagless 😎

    •  

      I agree Osprey backpacks are superb. But for this sort of reasonably small backpack, I wouldn't stress too much about the comfortableness. I mean unless you're carrying bricks around, you can't pack it very heavy anyway.

    Is this bag good for carry on luggage for discount airlines?

  •  

    I have been riding motorbikes daily for decades and bringing lots of heavy stuff home,
    and the best pack I've run across is a Midford business backpack,
    It's about 50+ litres and can be had from big-w when it's on sale for around 20bucks
    Comes in black or army puke green but is heavy duty, HD zips, fabric, and well padded straps.
    Hip strap is too small for me, would be my only complaint but only cost me $2,
    as I was returning another one that couldn't hack it, when I spotted this beauty

    •  

      That sounds good, but I couldn't find any on Big W website. Could you share a link where I could check it out?

      • +1 vote

        Sorry, looks like big W has stopped stocking them, probably when everyone that bought one, didn't need to come back.

        Midford website has some, there's another site, exclusive, that shows you more variety, and you can link to stockists from Midfords website,
        you may be able to catch one of these stores with a sale going.
        3 year warranty and the backpacks are probably about 35lts maybe?

        •  

          thanks for the recommendation. Will hae to check them out as I like to pack my backpacks pretty full day to day as i lug alot with me to read, and in general I don't 'travel light' in my own city haha.

          Sad that big w don't stock them, I"m assuming you wouldn't get them so cheap from other sellers or their online website then :(

  •  

    I bought this one, which appears to be the same backpack, about 3 weeks ago. DD4 had a stock shortage, so it was only posted a couple of days ago. Tracking number shows it's still in Shenzhen. It's now about 40c cheaper, probably AUD vs USD changed, so it's been on half price sale a while.

    These cheap packs may seem like a bargain,
    and to some they probably will be,
    But when a pocket rips and all your money falls out, they get expensive fast

      I wouldn't rob banks with it. Well… maybe I would it was forced on me. Like in a situation similar to Johnny Utah in Point Break. But if I had a choice, I'd use a canvas duffle bag.

    There once was a lass from Nantucket,
    She didn't use a pack, but a bucket,
    But one day she did slip,
    And her lid did do flip,
    And she landed with her arse in the drink..

    2 weeks after payment, it still says "pending for shipping"

  •  

    damn. im still waiting for it to be shipped. i didnt know we must message them.

  •  

    Thinking of ordering for travelling next month.. Has anyone received their backpack yet?

    •  

      make sure you message them after your purchase to make them ship your order.

    •  

      In all honesty, the product is highly unlikely to be at your door in under 20 business days. I'd look elsewhere.

  •  

    Anyone having trouble using PayPal to pay? Keeps saying error due to no country in address something like that. Fustrating.

  •  

    I ordered on 24 Feb, it arrived today, but it was broken during transit. There is large cut on side of the bag.

    •  

      Damn, that is terrible. I would contact DD4 customer service (although not sure how effective they are). Hopefully it works out for you. Let us know!

  •  

    They are charging me in US dollars. Anyone know how to prevent paypal from doing the currency conversion and let visa do it instead?

    Just received mine yesterday! Black…
