Product review: Oxford Aqua V20 rucksack

With four months of use, here’s how I’ve found Oxford's Aqua V20 rucksack.

What’s good?

I’m a fan of the Oxford Aqua range of gear. I’ve previously tested a roll bag, inner bags and the smaller-capacity V12 rucksack. All have been great quality, fully waterproof and value for money and this 20-litre version has proved to be no different. The roll top opening is easy to access and the large storage compartment holds my laptop, gym kit and lunch for my daily commute. On a recent overnight excursion, there was plenty of space for my essentials. For extra comfort, there are also padded back panels and an adjustable waist and chest straps. With the nights drawing in I like the fact there’s loads of reflective panelling on the bag, winter kit is notoriously dark so having something that stands out so well has only got to help with being seen.  

What’s not?

OK, so I have to admit it is a little garish and pink isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. There are more subtle colours available but, personally, I rather like blazing neon, as it takes me back to my youth! There is a small external, zipped pocket, which is fully waterproof but very difficult to access. Perhaps an internal pocket to store essentials like keys and cash would have been a better idea.
