Solid Day Bag
When i bought this I wanted a comfortable and sturdy day bag that held its shape regardless of how full it had been packed. This bag delivers on this promise. It keeps its shape and never distorts or slumps. The ventilation system works well and keeps your back dry. Its very well made and just feels of good quality. It comes with a lifetime warrenty so for 80 quid you cant go wrong.
There are a few areas in which this bag could be improved and although trivial retracts from a 5 star rating. The side pockets are very loose, dont expect these to hold any thing rigid without risk of loosing it. On my first puting with the bag i placed a bottle of lucozade in one of them as I would with any other bag and a few hours later sadly it had vanished much to my dismay of having obliviously littered the countryiside (I retraced my steps however and found it on the trail 45 minutes back). The second issue I noticed with this bag is that when it is full to capacity the rigid backplace applies pressure to the base of your back. I readjusted the straps a few times to compensate but this issue persisted.
Overall am happy with my purchase but not quite a perfect day bag.
