Berghaus Sentinel 35

This 30-40 litre rucksack has a built-in waterproof liner; hipbelt, liner and lid can be removed; wand pockets; compression straps; padded back that won’t hold snow; good lid pockets; ideal for winter mountaineers. But 1750g is very heavy; pricy; lid fit is poor; not the best sack for walkers.

Verdict: A unique waterproof and modular design that would suit winter mountaineers, but walkers may prefer alternatives.
