Dicota Active Backpack Review
The Dicota Active Backpack features a huge array of pockets, storage and internal cable management so you can charge everything without taking it all out of your backpack. After using it for a couple of weeks, I can confirm 100% they are telling the truth. This juggernaut of a bag has more pockets and compartments you would ever need.
The quality of production that Dicota has provided for this bag is absolutely amazing. They have used some beautiful materials to make too many pockets to count, some are elasticated, some have zips, there’s a pocket for everything even my old PSP 1000 I dug out of cold storage.
I used the Dicota Active Backpack for a number of trips, going up to my nans for a couple of days, staying in London for a weekend, and to and from work. All these meant I had to charge on the go, keep everything secure and look cool.
I was able to take my Dell Laptop, my Samsung S9+, and Switch. With still had enough room for clothing, papers, and to charge 2 devices at the same time.
At the top of the bag, there is a pocket that is protected. I used this pocket for my S9+, as it protects it thanks to its cushioned surroundings. On the right is a pocket that contains a hydration pocket that will hold a bottle of drink or a business umbrella. When not used, this pocket can be hidden inside the bag and zipped up.
I have to applaud Dicota for their amazing job with the routing of the internal cables. They have created the ability to route cables virtually anywhere in the bag. This means you can have multiple devices charging, in various pockets of the bag, without masses of cabling getting tangled up.
Opening up the back of the bag is easy, as the zips go all the way down. This makes it possible to completely open the bag to get your cable routing done perfectly. It took me a couple of tries to get the right cables in the right holes. This is also goods for travelling abroad, as it can be opened fully with your laptop showing.
After the first week, I was hooked on this bag. It has everything I would ever need.
The Dicota Active Backpack has the best of both worlds, the on-the-go techie needing to charge his devices, and just the guy going to work. It works on both levels. When travelling with a bag full of tech, you don’t want it hurting your back after wearing it for long periods of time. This bag has a serious amount of padding along the back, and even some on your shoulders, Dicota went heavy on the padding and it has paid off. The padding is almost a honey cone texture and allows a lot of air to flow down the bag.

In my opinion, Dicota has created the perfect backpack. If you are in the market for a new bag, travel a lot, or use a large number of smart devices, the Dicota Active Backpack really is what you’re looking for.
It looks great, has more pockets than anyone would need and sections I am still discovering, and best of all, it fits really well on your back. I’ve walked around London for a whole day with this and I didn’t get any problems.
