This backpack/lunchbox has 6 different pockets, not counting the main compartment and holds anything I need throughout my work day! I hold maybe 15-20lbs of stuff in this backpack! I happened to find a lunchbox insert that fits perfectly inside which is a huge plus. Your food and drinks will stay cold as long as you have enough ice packs!
This backpack also comes with a carabiner clip on the side, which is very nice, I have my pouch for safety glasses clipped onto it and I clip my keys onto it from time to time. The sleeve that comes with the Turismo fits a 40oz double walled thermus perfectly. Lifeline 7502 Silver Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Water Bottle - 40 oz. Capacity
The only downsides I've had with this backpack is that the top handle was starting to rip off (which I've reglued), and the inside zipper compartment that flips with the top can catch the fabric and rip it, I've also reglued that together.
Just right off the bat......this is not a waterproof cooler so don't dump ice or bags of ice in it and expect it not to leak. I bought the Herolily techni-ice and while it does keep everything cool for the whole night it doesn't stay frozen. (that's not the fault of this cooler. it's an issue with the techni-ice over-promising and that's for another review I'll write soon). While this is marketed as an insulated cooler i wouldn't really compare it to an actual cooler. It does have some sort of insulation sewn into it but you'll need something cold that doesn't melt or sweat if you want to keep something cold/frozen for more than a couple hours.
Also, the picture shows a water bottle and the reviews have a lot of complaints about not getting the bottle with their order. When I bought this item the description stated it came with the bottle and I didn't get it either. Honestly, from what has been said from the few who got it I probably wouldn't have used it anyway. I just use one of my Camelback bottles I have for scout events. I see now the description no longer states it comes with the bottle.
"Non-slip extra-comfort backpack straps"
Well.............let's chalk this up to marketing. They are "technically" a little padded but I wouldn't say they had a lot of padding. Even with that I easily lug 25lbs around with me to work or all around scout camp all weekend without ever having my shoulders hurt.
"Two separate insulated interior compartments"
When you zip open the cooler the top has another zippered compartment. i use the big section on bottom as a cooler and the top section for dry good like a shirt, gloves, power cord for my radio, etc...
"Concealed interior pockets for hiding different items"
Not sure what they're talking about here. There are the 2 compartments inside plus the flat zippered compartment in the big bottom section. Maybe they mean in the front zippered section but if you open it you can see everything. Isn't a "hiding spot" so to speak.
"Flat zippered interior pocket"
This is pretty much only useful for really flat items. Maybe some paperwork or small books. I also use it to store paper plates for when we're in the woods camping just in case we ever need plates and are away from our campsite.
"Padded handle grip"
This i find very useful on a daily basis. It is sewn in very well and is very sturdy. I've had 40lbs in this pack before and never felt or saw it give at all. i pick it up by the handle on a daily basis with 20-25lbs in it and the stitching is just as good as when i bought it.
The insulated bottle holder is nice and does insulate somewhat. Keeps my bottle secure. It is detachable with a shoulder strap but I've never used it that way so can't really comment about it that way.
The front flap is rather odd. The bottom is smaller than the top. I understand the design so it doesn't cover the bottle but unless you've got something shaped like an "L" or really skinny and flat I'm just not sure how useful it is because it's so deep. I have a portable iHome iPod/radio that folds flat that I use at work and it just does fit in this front flap which worked at perfect. The front pocket on the front of the front flap (that make sense) is only useful for very small items like credit cards, money, paper clips (I don't know...).
The front zippered pocket is great. It has a small pocket for pens plus 2 larger pockets that are big enough to hold my full size iPod, old cell phone and cell phone charger. The mesh pocket on the inside holds a large bottle of tylenol, mini first aid kit, kleenex and numerous other items. It can hold all those "smalls" you always shove in your pocket.
Each side has a pocket with a velcro flap. One side has playing cards and my iHome radio remote and the other side holds one of those clear picnic condiment bottles that I use to hold a pound of crystal light. Never had a problem with the velcro flap coming undone and having my remote fall out.
The sides also have 3 rings you can hook stuff to. There is a thick plastic ring on each side for hooking items to and a fabric loop sewn into the top of one side with a metal carabiner included. Got a hat and my lifeguard rescue mask hooked on to these. If i can strap stuff to the outside of my bag to save space I will and these hooks would've been an easy item to not include when they designed the bag. Good thing someone was smart because they are very useful.
I purchased this bag over 4 months ago and have put it through the paces between 6 shifts a week and multiple scouting events and campouts. I pack enough food to feed an army every night in the main compartment (according to my wife), extra shirt, gloves, radio power cord in the top compartment, 20 diff small items in the front section, ihome ipod radio in the front flap, stuff in both side pockets and stuff clipped to the outside rings. I have every single pocket, compartment and carabiner attachment point used in some way every single day of the week and it always weights at least 20lbs. I open every zipper pocket on this bag at least 10-20 times a night and none of them have given me a problem so far. I work in a factory and I worried this would quickly get filthy even though I take good care of what I own but it still looks like it did the 1st day I got it.
I can't recommend this bag enough and sorry for the very lengthy review. If I could give it 10 stars I would. I searched for months and when I found this bag I spent another week or 2 searching the web for the best price and $41+free shipping is cheaper than anywhere I've found. If you need a cooler and a backpack for long hours at work or outdoors you have to get this bag.
The only negative thing I have to say about this bag is it wasn't assembled very well. I have had to re-stitch the bag at many parts of the inside seams. I thought it was because I was over-filling it, but my husband doesn't carry nearly as much stuff as I do and I have to stitch his bag as often as I do my own. The price should be reduced because I have to keep rebuilding the bag, but it is still worth 5 stars.
