The thoughtfully engineered, AdaptiveFit harness provides comfort and load carrying stability and the velcro adjust, Air Contour back system ensures a precise fit.
If and when the terrain becomes a bit more challenging or you're lucky enough to be in warmer climates then give thanks to the air mesh ventilated back panel, keeping your back cool even if your journey heats up.
While compact in design, this pack is generous in capacity and access options, it also has host of technical features including hidden, external lash points for attaching a sleeping-mat, an integral raincover in case the weather gets wild and walking pole and ice axe holders for when the going gets tough.
This was a slightly last minute purchase before I set off on a 3 month trip around Central America and I am SO glad that I did. I got this bag at a sale price of £50, which is incredible value for money.
This is a front-loading bag for easy access and packing, great for staying in hostel dorms, but still has the standard top-loader option for hiking.
This bag is super lightweight and comfortable. Part of my trip involved hiking up a 3000m volcano and I barely felt a think (something I didn't believe was possible until now).
This bag isn't perfect however. There lightweight construction does mean that this isn't the toughest of bags and the front loading pocket is not the easiest at times.
I would definately recommend this bag for backpackers and the occasional hikers. However, for those looking for something a little bit tougher spend the extra and go for something like the Deuter Aircontact, which has been built to last.
