The Spare Camel is the perfect travel or daily commuter backpack. It's 30L interior easily fits a weeks worth of clothes, or a man's camel load of beer (read: it can fit a carton). The best feature of this bag however is it's ability to open up and lay completely flat giving you quick and easy access to the entire interior. It is kind of like accessing stuff from a suitcase only in backpack form. Two zip pulls mean you can also open from the side or just the top should the need arise. What cannot fit inside the bag is easily strapped to the outside using the four lines of clipping webbing. The Spare Camel is the perfect companion to our Royd Bike Bag; clip it on and ride away from the airport. Oh, and speaking of airports, this pack is carry on compatible. No air hostess will ever give you a dirty look as it fits in all overhead bins or under the seat in front of you.
On the outside of the pack is a small strip of reflective tape (night time safety without being too over the top), as well as a slip pocket perfect for D-locks, or your travel itinerary. Although the bag can fit up to 17 inch laptops, this particular pocket can fit a 13 inch laptop (out of it's sleeve and ready for a TSA check) or iPad. Delving inside the pack you will find four pockets designed specifically to keep everything sorted and easily accessible. This includes our pleated back wall pocket, which is perfect for dirty commuting clothes, as well as two smaller pleated and zippered pockets on the front wall. The fourth pocket is a little zippered stash spot at the top of the pack for valuables such as phone, or for quick access items such as key/swipe pass. How many times have you had to delve through your pack for such a small yet important thing? Not any more! Oh, and the pack now features a covered port for your water bladder tube so you no longer need to run the hose between your zip pulls.
The backpack straps are tapered, contoured and padded with 10mm of high density EVA foam. These are the exact same straps as found on all our backpacks, which have been used and abused for years, and will not dig in or rub your neck. The backpad and framesheet is also the same as used on our Chunky Toad, complete with removable 10mm EVA foam as well as 1.5mm HDPE framesheet. As has been proven over time nothing in your pack will stab you in the back!
All zips are YKK which are the toughest we could get our hands on. Despite this we decided for an extra level of overkill and protected the exterior zips via a generous zip flap. This will reduce the likelihood of dust, dirt and grime gumming up and potentially prematurely destroying your zips.
