Affordable rucksack

Postby Bounce » Sat Apr 02, 2011 2:53 pm

I've decided to combine my running with my chores/fun stuff... For example, running to the supermarket in the next part of London to get an ingredient for food, running to a cafe for a low fat soya latte, running somewhere to meet a friend... It keeps things interesting...

Anyway, I ran to and back from the supermarket 3KM away and I was wearing a draw string rucksack... It was really crappy because things bounced about inside.

Can anybody recommend a good rucksack for running? Obviously, I don't intend on ever trying to haul a whole shopload across my travels, but something secure enough for my wallet and a few small things would be great!

I would get thee to Decathlon.

For running, I would go for a beltbag style thing instead of a rucksack. More comfortable and less sweaty in my experience. Though it does depend on just how much you will be carrying.

Totally agree. A rucksack ruins the running experience in my view. But I hardly notice a bumbag.
