Coleman Exponent Tatarian X50 2008

This rucksack has an adjustable, padded back system; very wide, padded hipbelt fins; mesh wand pockets; compression straps; zipped front pocket; extending lid; lid pocket; small snow-lock extension; hydration system-compatible; superb price for what you get. But 1710g is heavy; stiff hipbelt not comfiest; floating lid can potentially let water in.
Verdict
Good value, fine for heavy loads, but there are lighter sacks.
