Size

Trakke

(1/1)

I did find myself wanting a bigger flat pocket that would hold my wallet or phone. My iPhone 11 with case was able to tightly squeeze into one of the pockets but it was a bit of a pain to put it in and take it out. I would much prefer if on one side Trakke would introduce 2 wider pockets instead of the current 3. This way each pocket would fit a specific item, instead of all 6 being identical

Zipper

Trakke

(1/1)

Before that, we’ll first start with the zipper pocket at the top since, at this point, you’re probably getting anxious with the lack of sealed compartments on the Bannoch. Indeed, this is the only compartment you’ll find on the bag with a zipper, and this is where your smaller EDC items will go, such as smaller smartphone adapters, earphones, house keys, or a small bottle of hand sanitizer. Water-resistant fabric is present along the YKK zipper, so even though the pocket’s located near the edge and just under the flap, it still has additional protection from the elements.

Laptop

Trakke

(1/2)

We would have preferred to see Trakke use a false bottom in this space, but oh well. It’s also a little bit tight to get the laptop through the zipper.

Commute

Compartment

Trakke

(1/1)

Lastly, we arrive at the main compartment. There’s plenty of space if you want to use the Bannoch as a day pack. Large textbooks and notebooks will feel right at home here, along with one or two pouches. The rectangular profile outside translates directly inside, so using packing cubes is an ideal solution to prevent irregular bulging if you want to use it as a short-term travel backpack

Strap

Trakke

(1/2)

Starting with the harness system, the Trakke Vorlich features adjustable shoulder straps that are thin but densely padded. They sit comfortably on your shoulders without digging in, which we like. The back panel is padded, too, but there’s no ventilation here to speak of—so things can get sweaty quickly if it’s hot out and you’ve just got a T-shirt on.
