How is backpack volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.

How to adjust your backpack
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (it should sit over the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.

How to pack a backpack
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.

Maintenance tips
To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing), we recommend you do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean, or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.

Nice product and at the offer price, it's a steal. The built quality seems great and is big enough for a 3-4 day hiking trip.

Used for 3 to 6 months
This backpack is the best deal at this price. I am using it since 6 months and it is just perfect for 3-4 days trek. Easy to carry, comfortable with amazing look, this backpack is a must buy. The front small pocket is very handy to keep the most usable items while the large compartment can carry your 3-4 days cloths. The only drawback is that it doesn't have a compartment to put the used cloths.
Comfortable, easy to carry and awesome look
Only single compartment
Awesome backpack

Awesome backpack, used it on a trek as soon as i bought it and it performed great, wish it came with a rain cover though and side zip pockets. otherwise, perfect for a 3-4 day trip

no side pockets and rain cover
Good Backpack
Used for 1 week or less
the product is good enough to carry stuffs for a one day travel. Strong enough to be carried in train in india.
It doesn't come with side pockets. The water holder is too small and is not usable when fully packed. The zipper pocket at the top is not in a practical way to be used for travel in terms of accessibility.
light weight, durable, strong enough
no side pocket, water holder small
Excellent Product

its good, but the back support could be better...still a steal for the price..
Perfect Size
Used for 1 week or less
I bought the packpack as a present. The size is perfect for a short trip. Ideal for people who don't like to carry many things (not my case though). As I already read on the reviews before buying it, the only down side is that it doesn't have a rain cover. So I ordered one along with the backpack. Problem solved!
Size, shape, quailty
No rain cover
