Our Thoughts

The Kahu 22 is more of a day pack rather than a carry-on. It is impressive we have a packing list from a digital nomad who uses such a small bag.

22 liters of capacity is very small. This carry-on is so tiny some airlines would allow this bag as a personal item.

One thing I really like about this bag is the smooth lines in front. Having a lot of front pockets and straps mean the bag sill easily catch on anything and everything.

This bag has such a cool smooth look to it. Love it.

πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Quality craftsmanship with reliable materials that would surely last.
  • Weather-resistant so when the weather turns sour your things inside would be safe.
  • Features a padded laptop sleeve that also stretches for bulkier laptops.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Lacks side pockets for drink bottles.
  • Could use some extra external pockets for your small things.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "Words cannot describe how highly impressed I am with this bag. The materials used are very strong, build quality of the highest level. I knew that Macpac were reliable but this bag clearly defines what craftsmanship is about. Not only is this rucksack long lasting, it has a lifetime manufacturers guarantee. I love this rucksack and am compelled to tell everyone who is thinking of buying one."
  • "Well made daypack with useful pockets inside eg mobile, laptop, glasses, keys, USB sticks. Waist strap keeps pack in place when running for the bus. Had one of these packs before. Lasted six years. This one is better."
  • "Super comfortable, rugged, and holds a surprising amount."

Macpac Kahu 22 V2 Backpack
www.castlebergoutdoors.co.uk

"A long standing favourite in the Macpac range, the Kahu 22 is a simple day pack with a fresh modern design and multiple features that are right up to date. The pack is great for everyday use be it work, school or hiking. The internal organisation including a laptop sleeve and zippered security pocket make it ideal for commuting and the ability to carry up to A4 size folders is a great advantage for work use."
