This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a unique adjustable back system which ensures it will fit most walkers. However, with shorter people, the lid pocket may obstruct head movement when adjusted to the shortest back lengths. A big pack with a main compartment that can be split into two – ideal for weekend walks etc. The pockets were also excellent. Rather heavy for a pack of this size, though.
Verdict: A tough and versatile rucksack with an excellent adjustable back system, but it loses marks because of its substantial weight.
