Daniel MckellVery good and extremely sturdy backpack definitely worth the money!
AlisonDon't know why I can't put anything less than 5 stars for ratings? Maybe someone is trying to prevent any honest reviews?
Firm frame dug into the back of my pelvis; chest strap pinged open and it just didn't hold as much as I had expected. It kept falling over when I tried to pack it. All in all very annoying.
Very light and fit was good - didn't feel as if you were carrying any weight [apart from the blisters on my back!]
TerrenceThis is the best backpack that I have ever had, I've had this one for at least three years now and although it has a lot more life in it, I am going to get another one, before my local store closes down (so sad about this, as I love all the gear I buy there).
I have never had one bit of trouble with anything bought from your company, or any of the colleagues at my local store, so helpful, knowledgeable and honest (trust me, being the size that I am, I need honesty, when I ask if something fits/looks good on me).
At the end of the day, say what you like about online shopping, but nothing comes close to face to face shopping, when such important clothing and equipment need to be bought.
As with everything Trespass sell, this backpack is everything you expect and then some, definitely Designed for Living in the extremes.
All the best to the great people that I have come to have no trouble at all in trusting at the Poole, Dorset branch.
TomaszInexpensive backpack with good features. Materials used are not as good as with more expensive brands like Osprey or Lowe Alpine, you may find them to be a bit too stiff and less likeable in touch. Water repellency quite good but not excellent, can withstand a light showers but then you always have the rain cover which is tucked neatly in its own pocket at the base of the pack. Shoulder straps are comfortable but the material on them is a bit loose and as a result it moves around them slightly - should be stitched more accurately in first place, however this not affects comfort of use. Zippers can be a bit unforgiving at first, but this can be overcome by putting some wax on. Sternum strap oddly have a clamp near the left shoulder strap but again it's not uncomfortable. Hip belt is more of a stabilising belt and again with a capacity of claimed 28 litres it's not designed to bear a weight load. Clamps are made of cheap plastic and as with the zippers you have to be careful with them. Internal divider separate the inside into two spaces and can be of course unzipped giving you a single bigger space inside the pack. Don't expect it to be a waterproof barrier though. Not sure about this claimed to be waterproof pocket as I used the pack with the rain cover in wet conditions. The backpack sits comfortably on the back and shoulders if adjusted correctly, the Airflow system works sufficiently leaving you with no sweaty, wet back instead offering a nice, cool breeze of air. Tested already for around two months in different places in different character, walking, hiking, cycling etc. Overall a good, comfortable well designed backpack in low price brackets. If you want something more professional go for others like Lowe Alpine Eclipse 25 or one of the Osprey's similar capacity packs but if you don't want to spend twice as much this is something for you.
TomI spotted it in my local trespass store last week but didn't look at it properly but I took a gamble and sent my partner to get it today. I'm super impressed! Lovely fitting bag with lots of extra pockets. 5*
AidanI needed a rucksack for long distance ride. Just the right size for 3 nights away. comfortable with full adjustable straps and waist belt. Comfortable airflow keeps the back dry and comfortable. Perfect
HannahLovely rucksack, bought for a general day sack for day walks. Used it once already and it seems good quality however it sits awkwardly on my hips but that may be because it was adjusted poorly not helped by the fact im 5ft1! Also the hip pads could do with slightly more padding but other than that its an excellent rucksack so far
