5.0 out of 5 stars Carl 24 Oct 2010
By Carl
Colour Name:Ash/Black/Thunder| Size Name:45+8 lt|Verified Purchase
I've had this sack for a few weeks now and it's completed about 15-20 miles so far in some pretty bad weather. I've found it tough, very comfortable with plenty of storage space for a enough kit for a two day hike. It compresses well thanks to the strong compression straps and has plenty of hoops and straps to hang additional kit from if needed. It did 8 miles in the rain with me recently and thanks to the built in rain cover all my kit was bone dry.

All in all a great sack that I would recommend to anyone.

The review is for the mens' version but the two versions should be comparable.

The Berghaus Verden is a good back pack for short trips/hikes and does a really good job bridging the gap between day packs and the 65-90 litres back packs for longer trips.
The Verden will hold whatever you need for a couple of days, including sleeping back and mat. There are plenty of compression straps and D-rings for securing stuff to the outside of the bag. There are a few pockets here and there and a rain cover but the pack is not loaded with features. I really lacked a zipper locked pocket in the large compartment and pocket/D-ring on the hip belt/shoulder strap but otherwise the features are spot on.
The fabric quality is fairly good, I've been using mine for almost a year now and I've had no tears/undone seams yet with moderate weekly use.

The fit seems to be quite adjustable, at least I managed to get a good fit on my relatively slim hip/shoulders and tall upper body with the biofit. The pack is quite comfortable to wear even when fully loaded. The padding on the hip and shoulders are supple without being too much.

The Verden rucksack is recommended for the cost-conscious hiker/everyday user who is looking for a back pack for 2-4 day trips.

PROs:
Adjustability
Value for money
Build-quality

CONs:
Lacks a pocket or two

5.0 out of 5 stars another great Berghaus product 13 May 2013
By gary
Colour Name:Jet Black/Coal| Size Name:53 lt|Verified Purchase
Bought this bag for myself male 5 ft.10" and 13st after doing some research between the difference in the male and female versions I decided to go ahead and purchase the " female" version if there is a difference it would not be apparent to anyone but an expert ! the female being cheaper is all. Even after inquiring in a well known outdoor shop they said there is no difference from a male wearer but a difference to a female in the way the load is carried . So don't be put off by the description of it being a "female" rucksack. The bag itself is fantastic having all the requirements you'd expect from Berghaus all the bells and whistles. Only one negative about this bag is the H2o opening being on the back of the bag and I am concerned about tubing from bladder resting or rubbing on the back of my neck but only time will tell, Hope this has helped a little in your decision to buy or not to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Used it as a cabin bag 30 May 2012
By BC
Colour Name:Green/Green| Size Name:53 lt|Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a rucksack could be used as an airline cabin bag.

Basically, I wanted to get something that I could put a sleep system in and still carry on for European weekend travel.

I was worried about the 2 aluminium ribs (that are part of the biofit system) making the bag to tall - and consequently, I found the velcro release straps which allowed them to be removed. They went back into the main compartment of the bag - slotting through the bivi divider at the bottom.

I didn't fill the rucksack fully - and in that state it passed a monitored easyJet cabin baggage check twice...had to be careful about the straps fowling, and the biofit padding is thick.

It's a shame the Berghaus didn't equip the bag with a few things:

A mesh inner lid pocket - I find these useful.
2 lid closure straps - I find that the 2 strap configuration allows you to stabilise things carried externally e.g. a roll mat.
Side mesh pockets are small - didn't hold my 500 ml drinks bottle effectively enough for my liking.

Overall though, I do like the bag - and it serves my particular purpose of supporting low cost european flights.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a little disappointed! 25 May 2014
Colour Name:Eclipse/Navy| Size Name:53 lt|Verified Purchase
First let me say I'm a walker, having trekked in the Andes, Alps, Himalaya's and Wicklow, I take my gear very seriously and I reviewed this pack before I purchased!
The utube review showed two lid locking straps but the pack only had one. Also the four utility clips on the back were missing, no doubt to reduce costs but...!!!
The waist strap buckle was a nuisance as it necessatited having to look down to ensure correct engagement of the clasps,
I overcame this by purchasing and fitting a common or garden snap clasp...
Otherwise an excellant pack and my complaints are niggles that if Berghaus got their act together, need not be!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely an excellent bag 18 Sep 2013
By Giuse
Colour Name:Jet Black/Coal| Size Name:53 lt|Verified Purchase
I bought this bag for a three-months trip to South America. At the beginning I was considering to get something bigger, but 3months with a heavy load on your back can be very difficult. This seemed to be the best compromise in terms of size, internal storage and space, pockets and - very important - shape of the back side.
45 plus 8 will allow you to put all the stuff you need (keep in mind that the more space you have available, the more you will fill it..), and the bivi-divider is an excellent feature to allow you to keep dirty or wet clothes at the bottom, completely separate from the main compartment. What else? Rain cover, biofit back, two mesh pockets on the side, access to the main compartment from three different parts (bottom, top and middle) plus other three extra pockets (two on the side, one on top), water-system compatible, fully adjustable and above all VERY strong and durable material. I do like this bag, it's going to be a good travelmate!
