Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size I have done 2 overnight walks with it and it’s been great. Plenty of room to take the things you need for 1 person and was great when I was carrying more for my kids. I am not tall but it was so great with the adjustment I could make to make it more comfortable. Side pockets are great and the pack cover I bought was perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stiff and noisy I was a bit disappointed with this pack. I chose it as it is a minimalist, lightweight womens bag as I am a 5ft tall 53kg female. The padded straps were quite stiff and the back panels concentrated pressure on a small section of my back. Also, the pack was very squeaky and the noise was annoying. The straps to clip down the top pocket were located close to the top and even when the pack was mostly full the top pocket would flop around and hit me in the back of the head when I bent over. I adjusted to the pack by the end of the 4-day 48km hike, but still wasn't overly happy with it. The material is a thick woven material. Would have preferred a more lightweight and still durable fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast delivery & great pack! I bought this pack for my teenage daughter to do her Duke of Ed tramps. The pack arrived within 3 days of purchase & is great. Lightweight, easy to adjust & great well thought through compartments. Love the top fastening with extra deep flaps for waterproofing. Fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just did the Heaphy Track with this pack on my back. I am in my 50's and female who has had back surgery. It was full to the brim (first time tramper) with a lot of stuff l didn't really need as l was sleeping in huts. I had absolutely no back pain during or after the tramp but found it hard on my shoulders for the first 2 days. This could be because l am a newbie. Great back pack with plenty of room. I might need to downsize lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hiking! I recently used this pack in Patagonia to transport my camera equipment and camping gear around, as my camera bag isn't large enough to fit tent, cooker and all the rest. I was super happy with my choice as the pack is super comfortable and large enough to fit everything, including food and water for an overnight or even two night hike. I'm keen to get more into hiking and overnight trips so this pack is about to get a massive workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-designed pack I bought this pack six months ago and have only just used it for the first time on a tramp into the mountains. When packing, I found the design excellent. There is no sleeping bag compartment (good! as they waste space and can leak through the zip) but there is a generous top compartment with a hidden zip pocket for keys etc. There are also two very generous open side pockets for a water bottle etc.that have a pleat in them so they can still open out when the pack is full - I found them very useful for my camera and to stuff my hat into while I was still moving. But also I found the harness and shoulder padding really comfortable, the best I have ever had in a pack. I really recommend this product, which made for a great four-day trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bag for females I purchased for the bag for my daughters to use for Duke of Ed hikes. Its the perfect fit for small framed teenagers. Well made and fairly light.

Does the pack come with a rain cover?

Asked by: Hiking newbie
No - to keep your gear dry we'd recommend using a pack liner and one of our large pack covers.
