Adjustable Back System,
Bought for D of E. My daughter is really small for her age and this was the only rucksack which had sufficient adjustments to fit her snugly across the shoulders and around her waist. Has a good set of features for the price. The rain cover looks to be decent quality and fits well over the ‘sack. Very quick and easy to adjust the back length, unlike several other makes!

Bags for the girls
We got these bags for our duke of Edinburgh groups. The girls sometimes have very narrow waists and our standard bags would not do up tight enough around the waist which meant all the weight would lay on the shoulders. These bags allow for a narrower waist which solves this problem. So if you are lucky enough to have a narrow waist this bag should be good for you.

Lovely rucksack but sits high on back
This is a lovely rucksack that's sturdy and with good features. However, having tried it on in the shop and it seeming to fit well on our daughter's back, we then had trouble with it when we went walking and camping. The padding against the lower back seemed to have a ridge that dug into my daughter's back, especially when the rucksack was full and heavy. It might just be that my daughter's back is 'non-standard' !! But I guess the lesson learnt is to add some weight to the rucksack in the shop, put it on and then go off to look at other things in the shop for a while to see if any discomfort is felt!
We couldn't get the waist band and shoulder straps into a good position to change where the back pad sat.

Bought this for my 13 year old daughter to take on Duke of Edinburgh expedition. She is very slim and needed one that fitted round her hips properly. This rucksack fitted her perfectly. Very pleased with it. We received fantastic help from a young salesman called Sean. He helped her try out several rucksacks giving us lots of advice on fitting one and plenty of advice and tips for a DofE trip.
