  • Internal mesh zip stash pocket, and external low-profile zip pocket –  for the detritus of urban life.
  • The external sleeve is perfect for storing spare shoes or jandals.
  • Slim profile for stealth and comfort.
  • Roll, latch, cinch – adjust the volume to your needs with a roll-top closure that's quick and easy to use, secure and weatherproof.
  • Cactus 'Device Drop Redundancy' design. The internal sleeve sits up from the base of the pack, to protect your laptop from meeting the concrete when you set down or drop your pack.

RUCKUSReview by Mat
This is one of my fave packs for airport hopping - shopping in town - rapid commuting on my bike to name a few uses. So many bells and whistles you guys have done a great job on this one that is for real. The harness is solid and comfy when full loaded as the whole pack seems to sticks like glue when on the move.... (Posted on 29/05/19)
Flexible pack for travellingReview by Roger
I was impressed when a colleague shoed me their Ruckus so I headed into the store with the random assortment of things I regularly take with me to work (laptop, leads, lunch etc) to make sure the pack would work for me.

The large external will be great for temporary storage of the laptop en route through airport security - no need to fiddle about opening the whole pack to get the laptop out. Internal capacity large enough to accommodate overnight bag.

Great stuff. Thanks Cactus folk! (Posted on 12/01/19)
First ImpressionsReview by Aidan
Pros: obviously tough as nails, looks clean and awesome, stood up to wind driven rain on the bike at speed today. Lots of storage pockets. Perfect around town volume, fits gym kit, knick knacks and lunch easily.
Cons/Improvements: Gusset the outside pocket so filling it doesn't detract from the internal volume as much. Filling the big external pocket also makes it hard to fill the external zip pocket. The tail end of the top strap flapping about is kinda ugly. (Posted on 25/01/18)
