well made, great storage and comfortable
on 22 May 2016
Was in need of a daypack for trips to the gym and activities out and about. Looking across the various options I chose the well know brand seeing that I have had many Berghaus products in the past that lasted a long time.
The backpack has a variety of pockets, 1 zipped pocket on the front, 1 open pouchwith another safe zipped pocket on the inside. Attached to the inside of the backpack next to one of the pockets is a very handy key store to attach your keys which saves you having to dig around pockets when the time comes to get in through the door from your time away.
Inside the bag is a section with mesh fabric that allows you to store books or a small laptop which for me was a handy addition as it stores my tablet very well. The large holding area manages to hold quite a lot with the expanding straps on the front giving a little extra space whilst providing good support. I get a bath towel, a pair of trainers, a small zippered washbag, a bag of gym accessories and in just fine. The outside has two mesh pockets to house a couple of water bottles which are held in place by a couple of adjustable straps.
The backpack is well padded with vents \ grooves which stop that dreaded over heating and sweating that occurs from long wearing that is often the case with some padded backpacks.
The adjustable sternum and waist straps are a great feature which stop the backpack from bouncing around whilst I run. There is two Velcro loops and plastic attachment hoops to hang walking poles to although not used by myself yet again are good addition. On top of the backpack is a solid plastic handle that when cycling does have a tendency to dig in to my neck or nudge my cycle helmet but asides from that is strongly fixed. The elasticated cord expands well to allow a cycle helmet to beinserted to save having to carry it around in your hand.
The material has been very hard wearing with no signs of wear even though its been out in all weathers and had to endue the cramped and small openings of my local gym's lockers.
A timeless and well made backpack that has been with the purchase from day one. I would happily recommend this particular Berghaus bag to anyone
