Comfortable, spacious and robust walking day sack.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gelert Nebula Rucksack (Sports)At first glance this pack looks like it couldn't possibly live up to it's 25ltr description, but it does so with aplomb. It easily holds it own against some 30ltr day sacks on the market. The first time I used this pack was during a mountain marathon challenge walk and I found that it delivered in every way imaginable.
Size: 25ltr but it held more than my friend's 30ltr Karrimor pack. This was down to how the Gelert is designed. It creates room by having lots of little hidden pockets and clips on the outside where your gear can attach comfortably. I was able to pack a 2ltr hydration pack, gaitors, windproof jacket, waterproof trousers, over trousers, waterproof jacket, fleece, first aid pack and packed lunch. This is all you would ever need from a day sack.
Features: It has two fantastic pockets on the stomach support strap that allow you to securely hold your keys, mobile phone etc without fear of losing them. Great for peace of mind. The sack is well designed for hydration packs. It has a hidden pocket for the pack to fit into and a velcro clip at the top so it can hang from making it easier to get all the water you need when hiking. The right shoulder strap has a clip for the hydration tube to latch onto so it is very easy to get a drink when it's needed. There is a map pocket at the front and clips for compasses, lights, and walking sticks. Sternum and stomach support straps.
Practicality: The sack is comfortable to use and allows for breathability. It is small but manages to pack in everything you would ever need. It has been designed to cater for all needs.
In summary I would say this pack is the best I have ever bought. I would also add that Gelert will be the only brand I will use from now on although I reckon I'll be using this pack for years to come.
5 stars all round.
