This daysack from Eurohike has a padded back that is extremely comfortable at first, but the shallow channels don’t encourage much airflow, so you will get a little hot and sweaty. Overall fit is good though, and the well-padded shoulder straps are good. It’s a stable pack with a single compression strap on each side and a close-fitting back. Well-featured, with good pockets and a rain cover, but there’s no space for hydration and the front pocket arrangement seems rather over-elaborate.
Verdict: A good entry-level rucksack with a decent carrying capacity and a reasonably comfortable back system. Ideal for easy walking, especially if you don’t need that hydration compatibility.
Capacity: 35 litres
Main compartment: Lid/drawcord
Back system: Padded
Other features: Rain cover, waist belt, five pockets including two side pockets, pole attachments
