Puma Italia Backpack (REVIEW)

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

And so, after my historical Bayern Munich 2007-08 jersey (which by the way, won “Best Shirt” in the 2008 Soccerlens Awards) article, the time has come to review yet another fine SoccerPro product.

SoccerPro Puma Italia Backpack

This time, even more relevant to us Serie A and Calcio fans, I picked an Azzurri-related product: the Puma Italia backpack.


SoccerPro – A Review

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Not so long ago, I was contacted by a certain Travis from, offering me to test their products for free and then post a short review on the site. At first I was suspicious. Like… “where’s the catch”? Do I have to pay hidden fees somewhere? Will they send me some obscure, itchy training jacket which will give me a rash to last a lifetime?

Actually on this one: no catch whatsoever. As Travis clearly explained to me in his introductory email, *I* get to pick the products from their catalogue, and they pay for everything. Shipping included. In turn, they get some publicity on mCalcio with a short review of their article (written by me). Win-win situation, right? Obviously I accepted.

The great thing about someone offering you free stuff though, is that it automatically makes you interested in what they have to offer (and open yourself up to new things). That is, you’re much less likely to say “Oh great :roll: … another door-to-door salesman who wants to unload something on me“. That is how I discovered that SoccerPro is actually a pretty darn cool business, with plenty of things to offer and not limited to soccer merchandise.
