If you are travelling Anywhere and using a Rucksack as your luggage then I would Strongly recommend that you use some form of Rucksack Protector !!
This tip is from my own personal experience, as I have had Big Problems having my Rucksack damaged or even destroyed by airlines, particularly on Airport Carousels,
What can happen is that one of the straps can drop in-between the lats on the moving Carousel and then as your Rucksack goes around a corner, the strap gets ripped off, I lost the entire back and carrying system from one of my rucksacks !! You Definitely don't want this to happen, Especially on the way out to start a walking holiday !!
As The Rucksack Pro-Tector has the second function as a water-resistant liner for your rucksack. It is a particularly useful piece of kit for Camino walking, Other rucksack protectors leave you with the problem of having to carry it around with you for the walk with no useful function !!
I have tried many of the Rucksack Protectors that are available on the market and was disappointed with how they performed, So after having many problems with these decided to design and have my own ethically manufactured in Nepal
Further details about this are written up on
So, Obviously my own recommendation would be to get your Rucksack / Backpack Protector from us :-).
