This daysack from Berghaus is very comfortable. You’ll hardly notice you’re carrying it – even when fully loaded – which says a lot about the Freeflow back system. However, it does carry the load away from the back, which can affect stability. The 35+8-litre capacity sounds huge, and it’s superbly featured, with everything you could wish for, including excellent pockets and a good rain cover.
Verdict: A wonderful, well-featured pack with good pockets and a great back system. Difficult to fault for the price.
