I was bought this backpack for christmas in 2016, and have used it on every hike i have been on since. I have completed both my bronze and silver D of E with it, and 4 years worth of Cheshire Hikes (an overnight hiking competition) and all the practice hikes leading up (1 hike a month, for the 7 hikes leading up).
This bag is both light and comfortable, meaning at the end of the day I don't have any aches and pains from the bag. With its large capacity I am able to fit everything nessersary for a 3 day hike with room to spare. The top pocket is large enough to fit my entire lunch with snacks, and the lids inner pocket can hold all my toiletries along with a head touch. The bottom compartment can accomadate a sleeping bag, and with a squeeze, clothes aswell.
I don't have any major issues with the backpack, but a few areas that I feel can be improved on. If your using the 2 outside mesh pockets, you can't fit much into the 2 long side pockets that sit behind them. This sadly reduces theses pockets rather redundant. Secondly, the pocket on the waist band is quite small. I have a Huawei P20 phone, and this is unable to fit in this pocket. I instead use this pocket to hold tissues and lip balm. The water proof cover is a very snug fit if you have anything in the outer mesh pockets. I have swapped mine out for a larger one from Amazon. Finally, there is an interal pocket to put water bladders in. However, I am often reluctant to use it as I fear my water bladder with be squeezed and leak.
Overall I am very pleased with this backpack and would highly recommend it to every new hiker.
Great rucksack but the was rain cover was too small. No way it would fit. The store in Chiang Mai said it was the same for all and offered no help. I see now that there's a 50l version and wonder if the rain covers got mixed up.
Such a shame. Would have been perfect, otherwise.
I bought this for my daughter to do a 6 week island hopping trip after Uni. Everything, including the colour, exceeded our expectations. She is currently marooned in an island , too windy for the ferry....
I just bought this model but I would like some help as how to make it theft proof. As it is, both while walking and while it's being handled by luggage handlers at the airport, it's very easy to open it and help yourself to whatever is inside. Any suggestions please?
Well made & comfortable to wear. Lots of pockets & different ways to use - separate compartments or one large space.
