Numinous GlobePacs 55L Anti-theft Rucksack Review

Safety and security are two important aspects while travelling anywhere. Being robbed while backpacking is an exceedingly irritating inconvenience, one that everyone would wish to avoid. While locks are a traditional way of keeping your valuables safe, there are many advanced techniques available now to deter would-be-thieves.
Featured today on the blog is the Numinous GlobePacs 55L anti-theft rucksack that combines style, functionality and security to make it an excellent pack for your travels.

The Numinous pack has the following special features:
- Anti-slash technology
- Retractable combination lock system
- Anti-puncture technology
- Adjustable Back System
- Padded Lumbar Support & Airflow System
- Mesh Side Pockets
- Padded Laptop Compartment
- Full Length Opening
- Compression Straps
- Concealing Back Panel
- Side Carry Handles
For us, the key feature among all those listed above was the fact that the pack is slash-resistant. This means that there is a high level of protection from those trying to slash through your pack. Numinous makes use of Kevlar in their products. Kevlar has a high tensile strength-to-weight ratio making it very durable and difficult to slash through. This ensures that the rucksack is safe whether it is on your back or lying unattended somewhere. The zips on the rucksack are puncture resistant to pen or tool attacks. Add to this the retractable combination lock system and you can be assured that your rucksack and valuables in it are kept safe. We took the rucksack on a recent trip to the Peak District and were impressed with its functionality and safety aspect.

The 55L rucksack has a main compartment that is very spacious. You can open the rucksack completely because the zipper runs through the entire length of the pack. There are several smaller sections as well to organize smaller items. There are two side mesh pockets that are perfect for water bottles or for objects that you need quick access to. There is a large mesh pocket in the front too. The rucksack has padded lumbar support and an airflow system offering excellent comfort when in use. One aspect of the bag that we loved a lot was the concealing back panel. This panel can be used to contain all the straps of the rucksack when not needed and you can use the side carry handles instead.

I am of a petite frame and the rucksack was a little big for me, but it worked well for my other half. The rucksack was comfortable on his back even when fully packed and he was mighty impressed with its features. The back straps are fully adjustable and there are loads of clips to ensure that there are no loose straps flying around and hampering your walk. One small improvement we would love to see in the rucksack is the addition of wheels (this is available in the larger 80L rucksack currently). Other than that, the rucksack was perfect for us with enough room to hold all our stuff for a week away. The rucksack is stylish, functional, durable and above all secure. I can see us using this Numinous rucksack on all our future adventures.
