I've been on the hunt for a perfect rucksack for my Trek America trip for quite some time. I originally bought a brown leather-looking drawstring one at the beginning of the year but it wasn't very practical for getting things in and out. It's stylist, and great for a day out, but not for trek. Plan B I got a proper material style rucksack in bright pink. It wasn't very expensive and I love it and use it for work all the time. I thought it would be my perfect trek bag, but the thick straps are a bit awkward putting on and off and pink just doesn't go with everything (sad, but oh so true...)
Plan C I knew exactly what type of bag I wanted, something that had elements of the other two, so you can imagine how pleased I was when I spotted this Steve Madden bag for £29.99 in TK Maxx. It's got these cool black straps that are easy to adjust, a large zip compartment and two front pockets. The colour is an almost off beige with contract coral on the zip and top handle. It's the ideal kind of bag for my trip, I'll fit everything I need inside and it's super comfy on my arms too.
