Urban rucksack version
on 27 June 2016
I bought two of these - first one in March 2014 and the second in June 2016 .
The second one has thinner material and is lighter , I suspect its 600D denier not 1000D
I gave my first rucksack to my brother so will make a better comparison when they're side by side
Cutting corners can cost you when your in the middle of no-where . The new rucksack needs to earn my trust or it gets binned.
Just compaired the rucksack against my 120 litre Bergen and I know that has 1000D material and the 40 litre has thinner material !
Since the shoulder straps are not connected directly to the back of the rucksack , having a large pocket between them when you add an internal bladder it sags to the floor of the rucksack . The rucksack is designed to carry the weight on the hip belt in the true military way not the shoulders .
The more I use it the less impressed I am - NO stars
