Puma Italia Backpack (REVIEW)

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.

Boy do I love this bag. It’s not just the external aspect, which stylishly tags me as a member of the legendary World Cup 2006 champions (ok member might be pushing it; just a supporter then… a stylish supporter). There’s also a great functionality associated with this bag.

Now don’t get ahead of yourselves: this is no item from the 007 James Bond inventory. Pressing the secret red button will not turn this bag into a Go-Go-Gadget Copter to escape from criminals (and now you know my lame 80′s cultural references). Yet, even “Q” himself would approve of the spacious inside space, triple side pockets, and outside ballnet this bag features. Everything is meant for easy access: the main bag and side pockets open & close with zippers.

Manufacturer specs:

Features of the Italia Backpack from Puma include:

   • two-way zip opening into main compartment with mesh pocket inside
   • zipped side pockets
   • zipped front pocket with hidden ballnet
   • padded back
   • adjustable & padded shoulder straps with mesh mobile phone pocket
   • webbing loop
   • metal Puma zip pullers for all compartments and pockets
   • woven Italia badge on front

600 denier Polyester with PU backing against moisture.
Dimensions: 13″ x 18″ x 7″


The only issue I have with this backpack, is that the main bag has to be closed with the two zippers all the way down on the same side. If you leave the bag closed with both zippers up top, attempting to run with it will inevitably slide the bag wide open and you run (litterally) a serious risk of emptying part of its contents onto the pavement (if you have hearing problems or are running in traffic, probably without even noticing it). It happened to me a few times already, but thankfully I retrieved everything I had dropped. Be careful!

Anyways, as far as style & functionality go, I can thing of no better & practical way to show your support for the Azzurri. For a mere $33.25, this product receives two thumbs up on my end. So make sure to check out SoccerPro for the Puma Italia Backpack, or other licensed Italy gear and memorabilia.
