Regatta X-ERT 25 unisex rucksack has an effective concave back system that’s both cool and comfortable. The Regatta X-ERT 25 has well-padded straps that feel soft and spread the load well, although they are perhaps a bit too padded for a pack of this size. Quite heavy, the X-ERT is a little over-elaborate for 25 litres. That said, it has a good choice of pockets and double compression straps that keep it neat and tidy.

Verdict A spacious and well-featured pack that is easy to access and comfortable to carry, but there are better packs about for just a few pounds more.
