Ruigor Icon 47 Review - What We Looked At


The Ruigor Icon 47 is made of a water-resistant polyester that can stand up to any type of weather you might find yourself in without becoming a soggy mess. In addition, the backpack features a Smart Airflow System to keep your back cool and comfortable during hours of wear.


The Icon series of backpacks are standard-sized packs for everyday use. This backpack measures in at 19.3 x 12.2 x 6.3 inches, and is extremely lightweight at just 2.1 lbs. It has plenty of room to hold your daily necessities, including your laptop of up to 15.6”.


All Ruigor backpacks come with comfortably padded, adjustable straps that will enable you to find the ideal ergonomic fit. The straps even have a space for you to stow your sunglasses when not in use. And while the Icon 47 doesn’t include an additional chest strap that so many modern backpacks do, we found that it generally wasn’t needed for medium-heavy loads.

Extra Features 

Perfect for the college student or business commuter, Ruigor has thought of plenty of additional features to please their customers. From their patented Airflow Chamber to protective laptop sleeves, reflective strips, and earphone port, the company hasn't left any details out.  


All Ruigor products are backed by their generous 5-year warranty. The warranty products you from defective workmanship and materials, but does not include everyday wear and tear. If the product cannot be replaced due to availability, Ruigor will give you a similarly priced product in return.

Who is it Best Suited For? 

The Ruigor Icon Series is ideal for the everyday commuter who needs to carry a laptop, books, and other personal items. The compartments will help keep your items organized and safe, whether you’re walking across campus or traveling from airport to airport on business.

The Review

It's no secret that Swiss products are known for their high quality, but usually, that boost in quality also includes a hefty price tag. That's not the case with the Ruigor Icon 47, though—these backpacks are the perfect balance of both high-quality and affordability. Whether you’re looking for a backpack for work and travel, or you’re heading off to college in the fall, the Icon 47 is a top choice for your next backpack.

The Icon 47 is advertised an “all-purpose” backpack, and with all the additional features it comes with, we can’t see ourselves going many places without this pack. The inside includes multi-chamber organization with a protective pouch for your laptop (up to 15.6”) and several other compartments to keep all your electronics safe. There’s really no need to worry about your items getting thrown around while in transit, but if you travel often or find that you wear through backpacks more than average, Ruigor also offers the Icon 08 as a hard-case option with more support.

I loved that the style and fit of this backpack made it completely gender-neutral. The straps are easy to adjust and comfortably padded, without feeling too bulky. But the real star feature of this backpack is the Airflow Chamber. When I'm traveling, I often opt for a backpack over a purse, and there is nothing worse than rushing across an airport to get to your terminal and finding you have to leave your backpack on to avoid revealing your sweaty back. The Airflow Chamber will keep your back cool and comfortable during long outings.

The Ruigor Icon 47 is advertised as “water-resistant,” but if we’ve learned anything from other reviews, it’s that most users find it to be completely waterproof, so no need to panic is you get caught out in the elements. It’s also backed by the company’s generous 5-year warranty, should anything go wrong.


Whether you’re heading to the office or toting your kids around the local zoo, the Ruigor Icon 47 is that backpack you want to bring along. This all-purpose backpack will not only keep your valuables safe, but it's also comfortable for extended wear and is completely water-resistant.
