Review: The padded harness made it comfortable enough, although we found the adjustable back length fiddly and prone to coming undone. More adjustment on the shoulder and chest straps would be good. The Tivano appears much larger than its 30-litre capacity and the lack of compression straps made it feel very unstable on the back. We’d have liked more pockets and a less bulbous design.

amount of features it offers and could do with some compression straps.
