There’s no such things as bad weather – just an unsuitable backpack!

A backpack for all seasons – travel with confidence

You know the phrase “There’s no such things as bad weather, just an unsuitable backpack”? Ok, the original quote is not about backpacks but unsuitable clothing, however we think you can include bags and backpacks in your list of essential kit right now. 

Perhaps a combination of colder & wetter days and a global pandemic may not be your ideal conditions for venturing outdoors. Currently, life is full of do’s and don’ts about where we are allowed to go and what we are allowed to do, but not everything in life has stopped right now. We can still get outdoors and be active, so to make the most of it we need to be a little more prepared.

So, whether you are headed off for an Autumn catch-up or trekking across the city for the first time in several months, you’ll need something to carry your essentials with you.

The Crosstown backpack for your days out

The Crosstown backpack by traffic is the ideal choice for these daily trips, as it offers flexibility with multiple compartments in a waterproof wipeable backpack, suitable for any season. 

I know when I am heading out for the day, I now need to make sure I have masks and hand sanitiser within easy reach. With the Crosstown, there is a handy zipped compartment on the front which is ideal just for this.

Dropping in somewhere for lunch is not always an option either, so I take supplies with me for all the family. There is plenty of room in the Crosstown for lunch and drinks along with any other essentials – such as dry socks and spare jumpers. And thankfully the flexibility of the Crosstown means that if anything gets wet, it can be kept in a separate compartment until we get home.

Traffic on the go!

The durable material of the Crosstown is waterproof and can be simply wiped down, meaning it is easily sanitised after use. It can take on all types of weather! 

With the Crosstown backpack you have comfortable shoulder straps which are east to adjust to your needs, so you can carry it all day long. The shoulder strap has a zipped pocket which is large enough to hold cash or a travel/bank card. You don’t need to take the bag off to reach it – great for in shops or on public transport.

In a life full of restrictions, don’t let your backpack hold you back.

Go – with traffic.
