At last a rucksack with real zippable side pockets that you can actually fit things in!! No nasty elastic net pockets to catch on brambles and stretch and tear and lose your gear! There is a handy zip pocket on top too.
It is comfortable, with simple pads that allow your back to breathe and a simple rigid internal membrane to stop things digging into your back without a heavy internal frame. Hence it is light in weight, practical and strong.
It packs down small but seems to expand to hold more than any other 25L bag I have seen. It also has a nice simple waist belt. I used it for two long walks in warm weather so far and it was comfortable and did not bounce around.
All this at a great price, thank you Vango!
