Disappointed but it'll do for work...not hiking,
This review is from: Berghaus Unisex Remote II 25 Backpack (Sports)
I bought this bag to replace an old faithful Berghaus of 15 years but I have to say that I am a bit disappointed. This bag is the usual high standard that you would expect from Berghaus but it is just to 'busy' for my liking.
The main grumble I have with this bag is the 'active link' shoulder straps. These hold the top of the shoulder straps to the bad and are fabric secured through D-shaped brackets. What happens is everytime you put the bag on your shoulders they twist and dig in until you re-position (untwist) them.
I used the bag at Alton Towers in August and over a 9 hour period I found it uncomfortable and had to keep loosening and tightening the straps to find a decent position.
I have to admit on a recent long walks-I have used my old Berghaus and this one will be used only for work.
If you are looking for a hiking bag-buy a different Berghaus not this one
