The Vango Sherpa 65l is the best rucksack I found on the market today, My daughter travels to Cambodia and Thailand with the World Challenge team in July and this rucksack comes highly recommended by them and also by the Duke of Edinburgh Awards team. We actually took the time to try different shops and try on lots of different rucksacks, and the Vango Sherpa fits the bill perfectly. It has the best adjustment system, you are able to adjust the height of the back, the padding on the shoulder straps and hips is superior to others ensuring that if you have to trek for long periods with this rucksack on it will distribute the weight evenly and minimise any chafing. The rucksack comes with an easily accessible and hi-viz raincover, and plenty of side storage for water bottles and walking poles. The bottom compartment of the rucksack is also easily accessible, which a lot of other rucksacks do not have, meaning you will be able to get to items easily without having to unpack and repack the whole bag. I would recommend trying on rucksacks before you buy as everyone is different, this one was the most comfortable fit straight away and the quality of the material, zips and seams will mean it will last for many many trips. I would also recommend buying the best one you can, because the cheaper ones really do not stand up to the quality and design of the Vango. The zips were sticking on the cheaper ones, the straps were not as strong, the padding was minimal and no cleverly designed extras which can make a big difference when your whole belongings are in one bag. I found this one in the shops then I went online and bought through Amazon at a much better price (£50 instead of £80 in the shops).

Very good bag and delivery quick. My only negative is that on the second use, one half of the chest strap came off. It was possible to force it back on the piping of the bag (from where it popped off) but obviously there's a slight weakness now.

What can I say about this product, AMAZING. The picture didn't show the back system which was a concern, however it was the new back adjustable system which is exactly what I wanted. The product was in spot on condition. The best thing was this product was £30 cheaper then anywhere else on the internet and shops. Finally to make this purchase brilliant, it arrived the next day on standard 3-5 delivery. I am sure you wont get a better product and service in any shop or online!!!!!!

Great design but stitching ripped first time out. Not really a product built to last. It should last longer than on DoE trip! Its going back.

Does the job, holds a reasonable amount. There are a few loose bits coming apart after one expedition but I guess the bag has been thrown around a lot from my daughter.

Was advertised as New, then had a note to say was used once and small tear in pocket, but was also dirty on arrival. Was reasonably good value for money
