It is very light, and a good cost. The side pockets fit lots in. However, it is not made of the best material. It is waterproof, but because it is thin material it is easy to get small holes. I had my helmet in the top on the way out and even though it isn't at all sharp, just the pressure of it being against the material made a small hole in it. Also, the stitching on the base which takes the most pressure when things are in there is also starting to come away.
The straps are also very basic to save on the weight, which means they aren't the most comfortable. When buckled up the hip strap did not take any of the weight of the bag off my shoulders, so if you are carrying a heavy bag it is not the most comfortable to carry.
This is a good bag if you are short of weight and won't be carrying it everyday with lots of heavy stuff in. But if you are using it everyday (as I was carrying heavy caving stuff across hills each day) then it gets worn very quickly and isn't comfortable to carry. I was away for 2 weeks and it shows major signs of stress. One of the shoulder straps is starting to rip, seams are starting to come away and some holes in it. But this is also probably due to the weight I had in it, if you are only carrying clothes and lightweight stuff around it might fare better.
My main issue is the shoulder straps. You can assume that a fully filled 120 litre pack is going to be heavy so would have very good shoulder straps. These have virtually no padding at all so when fully loaded my thoughts about whether or not the flimsy connectors would give way were distracted by the pain in my shoulders. Use the hip belt? I tried. The description says that the pack has a ‘Padded adjustable hip belt’. Look at the side view picture; apart from a short, barely padded piece of material the majority of the hip belt is a thin strap.
In short, I went back to the pack I’ve been using for the past decade or so. It had some honest wear and tear damage to a strap but that was easily repaired. I wish I had done that in the first place.
