Vango Contour 50+10S Rucksack, 12 January 2017

Recommended by the D of E Award and ideal for my daughter. Very roomy and comfortable on the back.
Great backpack and a cracking price, 27 August 2016

I have just come back from a weeks travelling in Slovenia and can't fault the pack. Yes, the back adjustments took a bit of time to get right but once it was done that was it. The padding round the lower back and hips is great and felt very comfortable for the long walking days.
With water on board the pack and a weeks contents weighed in around 30lbs. I am only 5'6" but not once did it feel awkward or unstable which was a relief on the sections of via ferrata.
Works for me, 15 March 2015

Took this bag out for it's first trip yesterday. I had it loaded about 3 quarters full. I found there to be plenty of pockets to store items and in fact had a few empty. The fit I found very comfortable but I have to mention that it is a real pain to get it to the right height. Think it took me four or five attempts and it is very fiddly in that respect. It sat well on my hips and once on ,the weight felt fine. it wasn't raining so cannot comment on how waterproof or not it is but with the rain cover I can't see there would be much issue.

Bought this for my son's D of E Bronze award practice expedition today. Not even got it out the front door and both side pockets have gone ( is that why it was in the sale?) , had to use it though as no other option at short notice. Will see how the rest of it holds up when he returns tomorrow.....
Great as long as it doesn't rain, 07 April 2014

A really nice comfortable rucksack and the In-store fitting service meant it was the right size for our son's back. But it is not waterproof and neither is the rain cover !! Everything inside got completely soaked. You need to put everything in sturdy plastic bags inside the rucksack.
