THE NORTH FACE TERRA

Review: Good adjustment and heavily padded straps. Quite heavy at 1,890g, but proved as comfortable as any. The channelled back is stable and cool. The Terra is huge with a split main compartment that makes it a little like a small backpacking rucksack. It carries nicely whatever the load and has great pockets too, but some may find it just a bit too big and heavy.
