4.0 out of 5 stars Great bag for festivals 15 July 2012
I bought this bag to go to a festival and am very happy with it. It has an inside zip between the main part of the bag and the bottom pocket which was very handy, means you can either have one big space in the whole bag or seperate it into bottom and top parts. Also like the way the main zip goes all the way around which allows you to access everything within the main part of the bag easily. Has plenty of straps which allowed me to strap my camping chair to the side and my sleeping bag under the top part of the bag. The bag also has a hidden rain cover stashed away at the bottom to allow you to cover the bag when it rains. Was comfortable enough to carry so would reccomend it to anyone that needs a bag to take to festivals or camping when you need a bag to carry short distances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great durable rucksack 1 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Blue|Verified Purchase
I bought this rucksack as I was heading out to Oz with no idea what I'd be doing over there...it holds more than my suitcase does and everything was easy to get to due to all the access zips etc. it's very hardy too...still looks new despite being thrown about a fair bit whilst travelling around. My only gripe is that it's quite awkward to hoist onto my shoulders when full without a bit of assistance!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice piece of kit for the price. 1 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Green|Verified Purchase
Bought to hold all my stuff in for my various weekend outings.

The bag itself has a small pocket on the bottom which contains a large raincover (which is attached to the bag by a small lenght of cord so uou cant lose the raincover by accident). The raincover has an elasticated lining so covers the bag quite nicely, however I have yet to try it in a heavy downpour. Also note the bag states it is 'showerproof', so without the rain cover on don't expect you stuff to stay dry in a downpour.
There are two side pockets for bottles, they have elasticated tops, so should hold them quite well.
On the front of the bag are lots of loops, which you can use to attach things to, the bag comes with two removable loops for walking sticks on these.

The main compartment has a large zip at the front which allows full access to the to pocket, you can also open it from the top, which is sealed by drawstrings. The top compartment is spacious and I could fit lots of stuff in there.
The lower pocket can be accessed by another front zip and can be separated from the top compartment by zipping u a section of material over it. I would say the lower pocket was a third of the size of the main pocket (as a rough guess)
There's also two small pockets in the hood of the bag (one inside, one outside), The one on the inside is nice and out of the way whereas the one on the outside is reasonably roomy and is easily accessed. They could be useful for essential items that you want to store out of the way, on their own, or for items you need to be able to find quickly (maps, first aid kits, etc)

The hip and shoulder straps are nicely padded and seem confortable to wear once adjusted properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rucksack, has done me proud! 15 April 2013
Colour Name:Green|Verified Purchase
I bought this to hitch-hike from Liverpool to Morocco for charity and it was great. Bottom compartment for sleeping bag can be sectioned off from the main compartment for easy access without emptying the bag - winner. I hung a tent from the straps underneath, packed it with a stove, tins and clothing and tightened the top straps over a sleeping mat. The straps held up really well under the weight and strain of the packed bag and hanging tent. Would definitely recommend.
