After dialing in Sarah from Morzine, we headed to the West Coast of Sweden to catch up with serious runner, Ebba Jacobsson. Ebba is connected to Db from our own Ebba, who also runs a lot. We’re going to refer to her as Db Ebba for ease in this article.
Running Ebba bought herself the Freya last year so we decided she would be a good person to check in with. This wasn’t a branded arrangement or product promotion, so she was under no obligation to fib and tell us anything but her 100% honest opinions on the Freya backpack.
Hey girl! What have you been up to since we last spoke?
I ran with Ebba Olsson (Db Ebba) and talked far too much nonsense with her.
Oh, that happens with her.
You’ve had your Freya pack for about a year now. How are you getting on with it - give it to us straight.
Oh I love the bag! It’s probably the best bag to use when you train a lot as you can fit what you need and it’s great with all the small compartments. It’s also great if you have to carry your laptop to/from work.
This bag was designed for women, by women - can you notice a big difference?
Yes absolutely. For example, the Freya bag is a little smaller, which I think is great, then it sits a little higher on me, which suits me perfectly.
Travel hacks. You must have loads - are you willing to share them?
Yes! My biggest travel hack is to always bring your running shoes!! People who don’t bring running shoes when they travel can’t be trusted. Comfortable shoes are life and a pair of shoes does not take up much space.
Going back to our girl Freya, do you take it abroad or is it a ‘home’ bag?
Definitely mostly a home bag. I use it daily, which is suitable both for training as I said, but also if you are going further in the evening because it is so nice and stylish fits Sthlm’s life. I love all the compartments in it and that it has a structured top so that all your things don’t get mashed.
Love to here it. Last question - your fantasy Db shopping spree - tell us everything you would treat yourself to and why.
I’d have the Freya as an everyday bag, then a small Ramverk Carry On for all unnecessary weekend trips, a soft weekend bag for all non-unnecessary weekend trips (read: ski trips), then a bigger one for all epic longer ski trips and then an even bigger one to possibly go around the world. And finally a Snowroller. Do you have bike bags? I know you used to. So ideally, I’d make you bring back the bike bag and have one of those too.
You’re a legend. Thanks for sitting with us today!
