I have some Tretorn sneakers and I love them. I would not normally have chosen purple but they were on deep discount at an outlet so there was no colour choice.
Tretorn is a Swedish brand who also make really good bad-weather shoes and clothing. They have a very interesting heritage
Now that Sweden is going into autumn and winter and I will be working out in the field again soon, I have been looking at a light, waterproof backpack that will work well with my job as a teacher. I developed tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome in my left arm last year, and it was agony. Luckily, working from home solved that, and I realised I would have to find a better way of carrying my accoutrements when I go back out into the field.
This Tretorn water resistant Wings backpack – now on deep discount – interests me because:
- it will fit A4 folders easily
- it has a built in laptop pouch
- it stands up perfectly when open
- no zip opening – only poppers
- several outside pockets and pouches
- padded straps
- not heavy
- internal poppers allow you to make it bigger or smaller
I have not decided yet but after carrying very little when I go outside the house over the last year, I have realised I have to protect my back and shoulders.
