Good value rucksack.,
I bought this for twenty quid via Amazon. I was looking for a rucksack that would serve several needs - carry on for flights, daysack for hiking trips; and carrying various clobber, including a laptop, about town. 35l seemed about the right size.
Having used it on the first two of these, it's done pretty well as a daysack. On a recent hiking trip it worked well, with the useful array of pockets (main, top flap, sides, bottom section) providing room for waterproof, fleece, picnic, water bottles, valuables etc. The straps, back padding (with ventilation system), zips, zip covers etc all functioned well and the sack felt comfortable with a fair load.. The rain hood is also a nice feature, giving your stuff added protection from a dousing. It doesn't really work as a laptop carrier, however, since the main pocket is undivided (apart from a small pocket suitable for passport, tickets etc.
The one downer on the quality side, for me, is that the material feels rather thin and flimsy. Other than that the build quality seems pretty good. For twenty quid though it's great value - hence four stars.

i'm looking at this as an alternative to a wheely carry on bag (i hate them!) - so it fits fine for cabin baggage?? (Ryanair/easyjet??) I couldn't find anything with the dimensions written on for it!
