Review: The simple and lightweight harness was nicely soft and flexible, although the shoulder straps were set too far apart. Also the chest strap was rather fiddly. A large and lightweight pack with a simple ‘old school’ design that will really appeal to some. However, it’s already looking quite scuffed so the low weight and price probably come at the expense of durability.
