Technical Information

How to adjust my Backenger 20L bag
For an easy transition from a shoulder bag to a backpack, adjust the Backenger so the top part is level with your hip when worn as a shoulder bag. To adjust: remove excess length of strap from pocket and slide it into the rung, adjust the Backenger to your size. Finally, place the remainder strap into the pocket specifically designed for this purpose.
Recommendations for use
The Backenger can be transformed from messenger bag to backpack as you go about your daily business, so think about balancing out your belongings with this in mind using the numerous compartments. Remember to do up the zips before you set out.

No sync with iPhone 5s or iPhone 6
Used for 1 week or less
I have tried several times to sync the the iPhone 5s and 6s. It starts the paring but after the weighting process give an error - seems a time out.
Had one for years
I have a previous model, have taken it all over the planet, other than a little dirt absolutely no wear and tear. Love it
Great product
Used for 3 to 6 months
The versatility of switching between the messenger and back pack makes it incredibly versatile. I've used it for college, at the weekend and as a camera bag for my very heavy and bulky 35mm kit. I keep finding new handy pockets, a great product.
Incredibly well made for the price.
Can be a faff to switch between styles.
Some kind of a monster I have been using this bag for the last 5 days and it has been put to test from day 1 in torrential rains for almost everyday....needless to say all the bag components were bone dry...the color is actually black and not at all first look it looks cheap and plastic-y but it grows on you in due course when so start feeling the actual quality of the bag with its jet black lokks and all crazy contraptions....overall brilliant bag...yes pinches a pocket at a price tag of 3k and even more when u see a discount of 50% running on the other color after 1 week of u buying it....but sincerely great buy and it oozes class....easily fits with casuals and formals. And yes, its a space behemoth.

I use it on a daily basis. I carry my laptop to office and I can use it as shoulder bag whenever required. Something that was really useful for me while i was travelling.
it has high utility value.
heloFirst of all I would like to thank the whole Newfeel /Decathlon team for launching such an amazing product no qualm it got the Oxylane - Innovation of the year(2012) award.
I came to know about this bag last year and that it's going to be launched in all Decathlon Stores in March-2013 but since the launch date in India was bit too late I asked my friends in Germany to carry that for me as Decathlon was already selling this Product in UK and German stores from Beginning of 2013.

Now back to the Review:-

I travel almost 8-10 days for business in a month {I use all means of transportation Air ,Bus, Train and cab } and a devotee of travelling light and used to carry my overnight bag for all my travel before. The biggest challenge with a overnight bag is that it's quite bulky and heavy because of wheels and handle while the overall storing space is compromised also you can't move it on roads and sometime need to carry it on your shoulder. After buying this bag I'm using only Backenger for 2-3 days travel and can carry 2 Shirt, one Trouser , One Tee, Pair each of undershirt and underpants ,Socks, shaving kit and Vibram five Finger shoes . I use the bottle case for storing my laptop charger and magnetic card Holder for storing my Business cards since I have an ultra book I have the luxury of storing so many items but I still feel even with your 15 inch laptop you can easily squeeze in a pair of shirt and trouser in this bag .I keep my travel tickets , passport and credit cards in the outer zip compartment and it becomes quite easy to access them whenever you need to produce them to the verifying authority The best part is whenever I get tired carrying the bag on my shoulder I can transform it into a backup and vice versa in a single step.

The only problem I found out with this bag is the pen holder in the outer compartment as it put stress on the pen and thereby breaks it.

I have got the one in Black color and many people have given their compliments even without knowing that you can convert it into a backpack really fast which proves that's it really a very good looking bag.
Really Innovative Product. Ease of carrying my Laptop and using it over my Shoulder as well as Backpack is truly one of the best highlights of this product. Multiple compartments, Water Bottle Holder are some of the highlights. What really motivated me in buying was the YouTube Video and the Tag Line of course the catchy pep song/tune played in the Video :-)
Superb Marketing Strategy.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
bag can be used as a sling or a backpack, super convenient!
Tough, durable and innovative
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I was looking to replace my shoulder/sling bag for quite sometime. Then, one day I came across this bag video advertisement from the facebook. I instantly bought over by the idea that this bag can convert and function as a backpack as well.

So, the following weekend I went to the shop at Damansara and to my surprise it's cheaper that the price listed on the website here. But becareful, the price might be more depending to the material used but for this product I bought and reviewed, it costs me less than a hundred ringgit. I din't use this bag to carry any laptop yet but I'm quite satisfied by what it can do for me currently. So, if you're looking for a sling bag, give this bag a try. I bet you won't be disappointed.
youthful looking design, value for money
