Huru A Model Backpack Review

"Sturdy. Pouchy. Expandable."

The Model A from Huru boasts solid materials, a 5+ liter expansion feature and TONS of external access. (Though I think the looks kinda suffer with all the pouches.)

  • tons of external access
  • solid materials
  • expandable for larger loads
  • looks sleek (and pouchy)

Huru A Model Backpack Simple, pouchy looks.

Simple, pouchy looks.

Tons of external pouches on this sucker.

Huru A Model Backpack Buckle-flap top, zippered side-access as well.

Buckle-flap top, zippered side-access as well.

The zippered side access means you can get into your main compartment without unbuckling and flipping the top flap.

Huru A Model Backpack Luggage passthrough. Strap pockets. Solid comfort.

Luggage passthrough. Strap pockets. Solid comfort.

I really like the feel and performance of the Cordura material they’re using. Feels like something around 400-500D. Picks up some lint.

Straps are great feeling. Old-school dual channel padding like the old Jansports, but this padding and external material is much nicer.

Huru A Model Backpack Bottom zipper expands.

Bottom zipper expands.

This is an interesting feature for minimal travelers. Works pretty well. Means you can shove a packing cube way down to the bottom of the bag.

Main capacity is somewhat minimal without the expansion. Feels like maybe 3-4 wool sweaters when un-expanded.

Huru A Model Backpack 15

15" Laptop compartment is decently protected.

Not suspended off the bottom of the bag, but there’s a decent frame sheet and padding helping protect the corners. Easy to get the laptop in and out of.

Huru A Model Backpack So. Many. Pockets. Great material choices.

So. Many. Pockets. Great material choices.

Tons of pouches and pockets all over this thing. External access junkies rejoice!

YKK water-sealed zips, nice zip pulls. Thing’s pretty damn good in use.
