Thule devices from the Crossover series, whether it be a baby sling or a satchel, cause feeling of a such parquet jeep. Massive, with unusual nylon and dural accessories, but small flaws, like unprotected from water of lightnings. There are no these aspects, and there would be real, vedovy "jeeps" the world of hand luggage. But it not unique line of the company. There are options and is more ordinary, own sort of the car if to continue analogy from a world car. For example, satchels in the EnRoute series. It does not mean that they are more awful, simply others and for other purposes. Partners for every day. With one of such, with Thule EnRoute Strut Daypack which perfectly is suitable for Retina MacBook Pro 15" and more small-sized laptops, we and we will get acquainted in this article.
Zamesto of a baby sling
On own volume of Thule EnRoute Strut Daypack it is sensitive more largely than a baby sling of Crossover Sling and its volume makes 19 l. (against 17), but at all this it even is more compact, though leaves a little thicker if the device is good for filling things. It is own sort substitution to a baby sling if for any reasons that formfaktor is not pleasant. After all even despite of a comfortable and wide strap of Crossover Sling, it nevertheless one and the main loading also leaves on one shoulder. Respectively, in any case the satchel will carry easier.
At all this at EnRoute Strut Daypack one of baby sling pluses remains, and is concrete, small thickness if in it not to hide large-sized things, it seems флиски or windcheaters. In other words, it precisely can be not removed in public transport, if not so there is a lot of people, though not запамятовывайте to become a back to a wall not to tempt pilferers. On the other hand, not and it is simple to take out something from this satchel imperceptibly from the owner. For understanding of how the satchel looks actually, I suggest to look at a photo below:
On a background Mariinsky park in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev. The trip to this city also became the main test for a satchel, though it and at present actually every day with me in an ordinary city cycle for which it was created.
Before passing to operating experience, let’s glance in Thule EnRoute Strut Daypack.
Departments, otdelchik, pockets and other trifles
Despite of that is rather usual model of a satchel in a line of Thule which appeared it is unworthy dural accessories, it kept one of unique counters of big brothers — special rigid boxing for points or tender portable electronics:
Direct attention as the fabric of a satchel is poured on the sun — fascinating effect. As without the sun it becomes opaque:
Did not think missions of this zhelezyachka, but looks cool. It is possible to fasten something on a carbine. The firm counter with a doggie elastic band clamp too remained:
But unlike Crossover 32L Backpack where this element truly strongly holds a begunok on a place, in this copy it quicker for properties because to open a lightning it is possible, without removing an elastic band — it will simply slide off, it is necessary to pull for a doggie. On the other hand, the lock in this department very rigid and it is simply unreal to open imperceptibly — you will feel both a sound, and pressure. By the way, the lightning is partly protected from a rain.
Snutri a rigid pocket is trimmed by a myagenky fabric, and its form means glasses wearing — places снутри much. Though I usually there drag other things:
By the way, there the power unit from Retina MacBook Pro also well is located. Though there is no partition, as in similar department in Crossover 32L Backpack that it was possible to put phone. In principle it also can be thrown there, but will dangle, plus other things any more you will not put.
The back of boxing is снутри the main department of a satchel
Under a rigid pocket enough deepest department with very thick and myagenky face-to-face wall settled down.
To me personally there comfortably to carry a purse, keys and other small things to which quick access is necessary. For keys, by the way, there is a carbine:
On this department the lock usual, successful, is unbuttoned simply, and on a uvula there is a cool outset:
But, again, something is imperceptible from it to take out it will not turn out. It will be prevented by the rigid boxing hanging directly over a huge pocket. It is possible to open, but as the pilferer you will try to push there a hand — it is to a descent it will be felt. In turn, from it simply and comfortably to get things to the user, holding a satchel for the handle:
Not so abrupt as in a 32-liter satchel, but it fastens to a rigid back and at satchel deduction on weight its form does not change, as a result of what a lightning simply to clasp, without substituting a knee.
By the way, about a back. It rather rigid in respect of form deduction, consists of eight small pillows covered with a firm fabric, not kashlatyashchy and not leaving traces on clothes, it is also good on it sliding. The back under a satchel especially does not sweat. For a back of 5 points — it is executed simply perfectly, and even it is pleasant to me more, than in a line of Thule Crossover.
We come back to departments of a device, it is more subjects that that remained only one — central. It is hidden under a thick lightning which is in turn covered with water-proof nylon — though any protection against a rain, for what to a satchel too a plus.
Doggies big, walk simply, and on a uvula there are very comfortable plastic hooks. In real operation they cause simply ecstasy, though seem on the 1st look rough.
Also the counter with bright orange registration of hooks attracted. Well is in harmony with silver-gray color of the satchel.
Snutri of department is a place for 15-dyuymovgo the laptop — 15 Retina MacBook Pro comes one into one. Ordinary "Prokh" too is located. This pocket thick, perfectly protects a laptop.
Directly on it the department for a 10-inch tablet is sewed. It thin that is partly compensated by a thick wall of nuotbuchny office, but from the outer side of protection almost any is not present.
On other wall still there are some pockets where in my case were located the small external accumulator, the 2nd phone (LG Nexus 4) and the reader B&N with NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight in a firm cover.
Direct attention to a forward wall — nylon there rather narrow, but from the back it is not appeared through. To such decision there is an explanation about which I will tell is sensitive below.
Other place, is taken away for dimensional things. In a picture during a day the power unit from the laptop lies …
… But when I went to Kiev for day of the birth to the godfather, in a satchel very big gift to it, the musical book to one of kids of the relative and a plush toy handbag to the second perfectly was located. Places completely enough. It is possible флиску to throw, a spare T-shirt, etc. Though, it is pleasant to me more, when for such things absolutely separate pocket, as in Crossover 32L Backpack is allocated. But EnRoute Strut Daypack — it nevertheless a daily small-sized satchel, instead of hand luggage for travel.
Along the edges there is pair of big and elastic external pockets on an elastic band. Very necessary and useful departments in what it is possible to arrange napkins, a half liter bottle with water and other trifles.
In the lower part of a satchel, under a face-to-face huge pocket the plastic tape took place, it passes on perimeter of this pocket and is not decorative, and completely for itself a multipurpose element. Comfortably, if it is necessary to correct a satchel on a lap, to seize it that аккуратненько to put on a back, etc.
That to a descent it was pleasant to me in Thule EnRoute Strut Daypack — it is its small weight in 700 g and the general design. All these trifles, like a plastic tape on perimeter of a face-to-face pocket, thought with rigid boxing and the office partly protected by it from below, a powerful back and small-sized dimensions. Everything in common it does a picture of that for itself the comfortable as
sistant who imperceptibly carries your things.
One of circumstances to they be the firm rigid straps which are perfectly distributing weight. Loaded a satchel with a tablet, the laptop with the power unit, the external store, a set of cables, tormozky with food, a bottle of water and other trifles. You take in a hand — weighty, an infection! You throw on shoulders, you tighten straps, and the satchel weight already and is not felt, as if it is not present.
Usually, there is a breast belt partly to unload shoulders, but I actually do not use it.
It is simple for adjusting, though there is a minus — these pieces cannot be removed, unless it is simple to tear out them without ability to fasten back.
The accessories on straps plastic, but it not discrepancy because to tighten and dismiss a belt it is more convenient and easier, than when using dural krepezhy.
One easy movement, and strap it was dismissed, a satchel already in a hand, it is possible to get something. Threw it back, the next movement, and a device densely adjoins to a body, it is possible to go, run, jump — the satchel will not dangle.
Thule EnRoute Strut Daypack does not strike imagination with any run wild technologies or a set of pockets. Nylon usual, but look it perfectly. In places rather narrow that is made to please to small weight of a device though in critical places the fabric is thicker and stronger (the lower part of a satchel, a face-to-face pocket). There is a basic protection against a rain, departments in 90 % of cases there is completely enough for a city cycle and that the most important — the satchel is very comfortable in operation. It picked cool up the size and volume — not big and not small, not thick and not so thin. Good substitution for those one strap does not arrange whom and the traditional satchel for every day is necessary to a firm baby sling. Its approximate price — $100.
