R15.2 recommended for: all-purpose standard sized backpack; daily commute for 15" laptop users; overnight stay backpack; air travel carry-on; holiday travel. 
RiutBag is designed backwards for security: all access points and zips are safe against your back for calm, secure city travel to work and on holiday anywhere in the world. UK design by Sarah Giblin. Created with the help of 2,500 Kickstarter backers.
 
Backpack features
R15.2 is built with waterproof Cordura and anti-abrasion TPU. It is a smart and sturdy backpack for daily and international travel weighing 1.23kg. The main 15 litre compartment opens suitcase style. It has cushioned 15" laptop compartment (see dimensions below), zipped inner pockets, large comfortable top handle, two 750ml bottle holders, top loop for hanging, extra compartment for holding documents straight, separate top pocket, zipped D-pocket at base of spine for access on the go, trolley suitcase strap and adjustable/removeable chest strap. Included: Reflective RiutBands for night-visibility for pedestrians and cyclists. 
RiutBag materials
RiutBag designer has chosen the best materials available for the RiutBag: Waterproof, durable, reinforced Cordura. Anti-abrasive, waterproof TPU base. EVA and foam straps. Laptop compartment: lined, cushioned strong Lycra. Layers of protection between laptop and pavement: five layers. 100% YKK zips.

RiutBag dimensions

Airline carry-on safe 47 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm (18.5 inch x 14 inch x 7.8 inch)

Bottle holder dimensions

22cm high. 7cm wide. 

Laptop dimensions 

Maximum: 35cm x 24.5cm x 3cm (14 inches x 9.4 inch x 1 inch)
Washing instructions
RiutBag is simple to clean: For light stains, use a damp cloth. For a complete refresh, RiutBag is machine washable up to 40 degrees centigrade. Do not use detergent: this breaks down waterproofing capabilities in RiutBag materials.  Dry naturally, not in a machine or tumble dryer.
 
 
How RiutBag is made
Each RiutBag is designed by Sarah Giblin and is handmade at a sewing machine by her production team. When the RiutBags are complete, RiutBag designer, checks every single one - seam by seam, zip by zip - to ensure they are right for you. She spends 3-4 months per year at the RiutBag factory working alongside the staff, improving manufacturing techniques and designs every time and catching any errors which occur naturally when new, complex backpack designs are handmade by real people. Together with Sarah, two production teams of 22 people have made every RiutBag in existence.

    Better late than never I suppose. I recently got thier new X25 and plan to use it as a carry-on solution for short trips. While is a lot bigger i miss the side bottle pockets.. Another friend did a photoshoot also https://www.instagram.com/p/Ba268imlGsH/?taken-by=quitemindy I still have my older R15v1 which i've retired for casual use.

    I would like to suggest to get the R15 model which is about 15 litres and should be sufficient for our daily commute between work and home.

    Hey Mikael! Thanks for your suggestion! We would think so too. Unfortunately, the status of the bag is still on hold. But we're keeping our fingers (and toes) crossed. Do check back again :)

    The person behind you can get into your backpack more easily than you can. That's an unnerving design fault in our busiest towns and cities, travelling with expensive devices which access even more valuable data. So I turned the backpack round. No outer zips; they're all against your back. By revolving the body of the conventional rucksack, and moving all the outer zips to your back, I created the RiutBag.

    Hey everyone, we know - we're in love with the Ruit Bags too! Unfortunately, at this moment, Sarah (the founder) is only doing direct distribution and can't run a hunt. They promised to keep in touch though! #fingerscrossed

  • Before the Bobby bag, there was the Riutbag. Ruitbag was launched on kickstarted 2 years ago. Since the Bobby Bag is so popular, i think group hunters should be given another option for anti theft bags. Besides, i think Ruitbag looks better than Bobby.

    Yeap can fit a 15in laptop in the dedicated sleeve. There is a smaller 10l version if you don't need the extra space also.

    Been using the older v1 bag for close to a year now. Fantastic bag for urban commuting and daily use. The no external facing zips give great peace of mind on the train.
