There aren’t really any cons about the classic backpack from Bellroy, at least if you’re looking for a daypack in this size. The only con that I can think of is that it lacks an external holder for a water bottle.

For some, that might be a deal-breaker, but there is still room inside the classic Bellroy backpack to fit a water bottle. 


  • Size: 470 x 380 x 145 mm
  • Volume: 20 liter
  • Weight: 750 gram

My thoughts about the classic backpack from Bellroy

I think it’s a really neat backpack that looks good without drawing too much attention. The design is simple, yet stylish and timeless, which is something that I appreciate.

When traveling, I don’t like to flash with my valuables, so it’s great that the Bellroy backpack is compact and at the same time be able to fit everything needed. Of course, if you go away for a weekend to another country or a longer trip, you might want to carry a larger backpack, but it’s perfect as a city backpack or to carry stuff for work and school. 

You can easily fit 1-2 outfits or 1 full outfit with an extra pair of shoes. Also, if you’re not a person who usually carry a lot onboard a plane, it’s also a good backpack that fits under the seat, and allows you to carry everything needed for a long flight.
