The Tatonka Breva 20 women's rucksack offers back length which means you're able to get a good fit, but we would have preferred more padding on the hip belt. We like the comfortable soft shoulder straps and concave back system. The Tatonka Breva 20 is streamlined and lightweight, although we’d have liked some compression straps to secure the load. More pockets would also be useful – the rain cover takes up most of the room in the lid pocket.

Verdict Adjustable back length makes this a good option for women with short backs. It’s lightweight, but would benefit from extra pockets and side compression straps.
