This mid-sized 25L SLICE uses an anatomically shaped harness with dual density foam to give excellent load distribution when carrying a heavier load. The bag is set up to accommodate internal hydration bladder with tube routing from the inside to the outside onto your harness. This means that on longer trail rides you can stay hydrated and focused on the ride rather than fumbling with bottles. A removable hip belt helps to keep the movement of the bag under control. The hip belt also features volumised zip pockets (left and right), which means you can get a little extra storage for quick-access items (food, keys, access fobs) on the front of your body.
This is a medium weight pack made from durable materials (600D polyester and Triple ripstop 210D Nylon) with slim harness. YKK zips provide robust access to the main compartments and pockets. Engineered NIFCO side release buckles provide reassuring quality on the web tensioners, shoulder, chest and compression adjustment webs.
The pack features a selection of design details to make it function well: easy-grip molded zip pullers, top grab handle to make handling the pack when off the body easy, elastic web retainers to help you keep the adjustable web lengths under control, reflective flecks in key areas, removable impact lime green waterproof rain-cover, neatly stowed in a discreet base pocket.

Magazine reviews for dhb Luggit Slice 25L Rucksack
Review from road.cc
The dhb Slice 25 litre rucksack is the beautiful offspring of a passionate tryst between commuter bag and hydration pack. Yes, I liked it.
A sleek profile and clever design means it tracks seamlessly with the rider without detracting from a frisky road bike's character en-route to the office or on day rides, while also doubling as a capable trail companion too. Ditch the (optional) hydration bladder, and it will entertain small tablet computers along with a change of clothes, shoes, lock, stationery and other bike/ridr/commuter essentials.
A hardy 600denier nylon/polyester mix mightn't set pulses racing but covers all the bases in terms of price, durability and weather proofing. Splashes of day glow and Scotchlite bring the otherwise ultra practical black to life in low light/under vehicle headlights and the sturdy LED tab is perfectly positioned for maximum effect when hunkered low on the drops. Thoughtfully, there's also a neon yellow rain cover secreted in the base that adds extra visibility on foggy days if you need it.
The outermost compartment is ideally given to mini pumps/Co2 inflators/patch kits/spare tubes and multi-tools. The next one in is fleece lined and a good place to stash smart phones, GPS units and other valuable gadgetry - ours managed a compact system camera with 18-55mm lens
Elasticated zipper tags open and close the smaller compartments easily wearing gloved hands but I much preferred the chunky rubberised affair that did the job for the main compartment. Flanked by a sleeve pouch for hydration bladder, there's plenty of room in here for commuter/ride essentials and a bit more. The side of the pack featrues mesh pockets with elasticated collars cater energy bars and other generic overspill.
Broad shoulder, sternum and waist straps with intelligent padding keep heavier loads under control, whether you're charging along bridlepath, powering up the climbs or snaking through those lines of stationary traffic on the way to work.
The waist staps feature nifty pockets for keys, change, mobile phone and cards hidden from artful dodgers, yet close to hand, while a labyrinth of similarly well-executed pockets optimise the 25 litre capacity. That's extra useful because not everyone uses rucksack waist belts, a fact recognised by dhb who've made the one on the Slice removable.
The Slice is designed to sit lower on your back with tailored padding adding even greater comfort, that lower position gives more efficient airflow without compromising over the shoulder checks, better still the Slice incorporates an air channel between your back and the main part of the pack so reducing the risk of finishing a ride with a wet back.
Torrential downpours and malicious attack from overhanging brambles have made negligible impression on fabric and contents over the past few weeks of testing, and I would expect it to survive several years of hard use before retirement.
Innovative and well thought out rucksack that transcends road and mountain bike genres beautifully - an absolute bargain.

Regularly carry Dell 15 inch laptop 35cm x 24cm inside a neoprene sleeve. it's a slight sqeeze, but at least it wont move around.
No obvious wear after 6 months
Hope this helps,
Is the bag waterproof on the back i.e. the part between the bag and your back?
As far as rain proof inner, the cover will drop it off, and as it's tight to body limited water gets there.
Most will be spray up as bottom of bag gets dirty, I now use cover if roads wet and not raining.
I don't think the part between your back and the bag is technically waterproof but I have used it in the rain several times and nothing has ever got wet!
I'm not sure though if the back of the bag is waterproof , I would guess not (but could definitely be wrong) normally this would be covered by your back, so there wouldn't be a problem here. Certainly so far as my experiences go - I've ridden in some serious downpours - and been out in it for well over half an hour - and the contents inside the bag have always been dry when I arrived.
Hope this helps,
I Carry a laptop which is 35cm x 24cm inside a crumpler sleeve.
That's a slight squeeze, but no wear is obvious yet after 6 months.
In my opinion the air ventilation on the back could be a little better but I don't think you'll find a better bag at this price.
Hope this helps,
