4.0 out of 5 stars Trunki widens their Paddlepak Range with lots of fun to be had, 17 July 2014
This review is from: Trunki PaddlePak Water-Resistant Backpack - Inky the Octopus (Purple) (Luggage)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've owned Trunki PaddlePak Water-Resistant Backpack - Kaito the Whale (Black) for 18 months or more if memory serves and I continue to think of it as a 5* product for the reasons I stated in my review of the time.
I've been a convert to roll-top closure packs myself for a few years; my mountain daypack is a crux rk30 - and my bag for lighter excursions is an Exped Cloudburst Daysack. Both are great for me...

So when I discovered that my daughter didn't have to put up with yet another tatty rucksack that let the few things I give her to carry get soaked in Britain's liquid sunshine... and that it looked so cute and appealing... I was delighted. Moreover, the pack is well put together with child-friendly features, reflective highlights, sensible amounts of padding (too much can be just as bad as too little) and fabrics that seem tough enough to last for some time to come. It makes a great pool bag to keep damp swimming gear off everything else in the car but equally good for anyone who enjoys getting their kids into the great outdoors but doesn't want to be forced into the less-than-inspiring choices in most outdoors brands kids range.

Inky is a smaller model than Kaito the Whale - both in capacity and sizing for your child. In this regard it is a bit less practical than the larger Paddlepak models available simply because your child will grow out of it sooner and you can fit less of the usual gubbins inside. Apart from that the range is excellent and although the safety clip fastener does tend to pop open of its own accord after a couple of years of use, they remain a favourite in our family for all-weather excursions.
