This is a fairly basic day sack with one unusual feature, which is an extended lid that comes over half way down the pack and has a pocket on the front as well as on the top. I’m not sure of the point of this and it has the disadvantage of making the lid awkward to open when both pockets are full. A shorter lid and a separate pocket on the front of the pack would be better. Both pockets are fairly roomy. There are also two open-topped side pockets that will hold 700ml water bottles. I couldn’t remove a bottle when wearing the pack though. The only other features are a loop for a trekking pole – the handle goes in a side pocket – and a short daisy chain of webbing loops for attaching straps for other gear. There are no compression straps and no ice axe loops. 

The back is well-padded with air channels that allow some ventilation. The wide hipbelt carries 6kg well. However the framesheet only reaches to the top of the shoulder straps and not the top tension straps that lie above them. This renders the latter useless unless the pack is packed very firmly at the top as the section of fabric between the two sets of straps just collapses when weighted. The frame length is quite short anyway – too short for the top tension straps to be much use to me. With 6kg the carry was still comfortable though.

The cost is quite low but there are better packs for not much more.
