In my opinion, the LokBag is big just enough for me, to put all the necessities (and unnecessities) in it, while my desire to have multiple pockets in my bag is satisfied by two smaller inner pockets fastened by a zipper. However, I would be happier if the whole bag was fastened by a different system than by a simple cord and a bow-knot.
The cut of the bag is very clever – the upper hem is of a ˈUˈ shape which fits perfectly under the wearie’s bum and the bag does not have to be too low. The strap is quite wide and very pleasant on your shoulders and its tightening through the sling rings is ingenious in my opinion! If you need to tighten or loosen it even with your bag full, it is much easier to do so with the rings than to unfasten and refasten the straps. However, the single-sidedness of this system means that you cannot convert the LokBag to a backpack – this is nothing for my back which cannot hold on to uneven cargo, not even a bag, when I carry Emilka. Therefore, for me, LokBag is a great thing for short walks or running errands with minimal load in the bag, but I would not definitely wear it for long outdoor trips.
EDIT: As I was told you actually CAN convert the LokBag into a backpack! :O You just tie the bow-know over the strap and voila – you have a bag with two straps, a.k.a. a backpack! 😉 Therefore I want to apologize for my lack of imagination and possibly misleading our readers…
I hereby want to thank Loktu She (the manufacturer) for letting us test the bag!
