Berghaus Freeflow 30+6

The design of this daysack is useful if you are away overnight as it uses a zip-out/Velcro inner section to split the pack into two. Access is gained via the pocket at the base, while the Velcro allows you to carry tent poles even when you are using the divider. The back system is well-vented and has soft, mesh-filled shoulder straps. Plus there is an adjustable hipbelt and chest strap. The lid accommodates a detachable rain cover, as well as having a pocket inside and out. There is also a pocket on each side that can be compressed along with the main rucksack body      But there is no adjustment at the top of the shoulder straps. The lid is fastened using only one buckle and doesn’t fit as well as some and there is no front pocket for a map. Niggly points, but they add up.
