As previous comment the bag is not waterproof however I have never found a bag pack that is waterproof for under £100, and even then they leave, so don't let that put you off. My solution buy a cheap 30-40 litre rain cover or better yet dry bag to put inside for the heavy downpours. Don't go wasting money on waterproofing as this will rub off/degrade over time anyway.
The bag is fantastic and in my opinion far superior to its rivals that cost nearly twice as much. The bag has so many little gadgets and storage areas I'm still finding things out about it. I bought this a an ice/climbing/scrambling bag and fits all my gear and rope in great, it's comfortable and the feature full length zip is great if you need to get to the bottom of your bag quick! The shape of the bag fitting onto your back is great and keeps centre of gravity close to your back and doesn't through you off balance!
Only down side is the gear loops, the top securing loops are not great for attaching ice axes, great for walking poles but ice axes not so great!
All in all I highly rate this bag as a good day bag and for a day on the mountain in any weather. Really durable and a great alternative to the more expensive rivals with all of the features! Plenty of storage!

Now this rucksack is down and for the price it is worth a shot. There are pro & cons to this rucksack.
I bought this as I wanted a rucksack which I could use for walking and take to work, but not large enough like I was going trekking around Australia!
It is comfortable to wear, though I have not tried mega expensive rucksacks to compare.
The functionality is ok. There is a handy side compartment zip at the side where you can get to the bottom of the rucksack if it’s full, so you don’t have to turf out all your contents from the top. Handy if it’s raining.
It looks like a product, which has not been fully designed for Britain weather.
The product is not water proof in a downpour. Light showers it’s copes just. Neither does it have a rain cover. The way I got around this I just sprayed the bag with Sof Sole waterproof spray and it has vastly improved the waterproofness in bad downfalls. Though I suspect I will have to re-proof in 6 months, so will be more outlay!
Also, call me old fashioned. I like all compartments hidden from the elements & if the bag falls upside down nothing comes out . IE a zip. There are 3 open compartments on this bag externally open topped. If it rains it will just come into the compartments. Don’t put anything in them which hates water in case it rains.
I am making this review on the price and overall value which is why I give it 4 stars. It is well made. However the functionality & the waterproofing could be better. Though what does £ buy you nowadays in the rucksack sector!
