I bought it as I work at Music festivals - not as a rucksack for transporting gear but for use at the actual festival as a daybag so I was not after a huge rucksack.

Permanent Marker Pens x 4 Black Pack by Anker

The Bell Push is very tricky to open but it does come with its own 12volt battery so you have to get it to open somehow - I managed it but it was not easy.

The Bell Push comes with a supplied sticky pad - I cant say if I would have much faith in that so I decided to drill a hole though it so while I used… Read more
