All products is so good
VERY VERY NICE PRODUCT
Most people will just use this pack for walking which is fine. But for those running ultra distance races requiring more mandatory kit than your usual fell running pack can handle, this pack is a cheap and excellent alternative. Lots of well thought out bits and well made. Comfortable too.
So, this bag? Perfect for that price. I have been using it for a full month now as a day pack, 5-day hike pack, travel bag and even grocery bag. As another review here sum up perfectly "sometimes simple is good". It is a pack that is simply a pack, and you cannot ask for anything more. Quality is, as usual for Decathlon brand, really good.
I'm sure there's bag with more fancy options (but for 10 times the price), but if you need a good pack? Take that one, you will be satisfied.
material quality, price, design
COULD use another external pocket
This bag is a bargain. I have bags with dozens of pockets but I wanted a simple straightforward bag for my trip up Mt Snowdon. It held my waterproofs, food, water and bits and bobs and was very comfortable to wear. If you know how to pack a bag a single main compartment is no problem the top pocket is the size of the flap so roomy for all the things you need to hand and the mesh pockets held nalgene 1lt bottles - not always possible on cheaper bags.
Buckles and straps were fine though I had the chest strap fully extended but I'm broad shouldered. It fit me well with loads of adjustment elsewhere.
As for waterproof. Nope. At this price I didn't want or expect it to be. I never fully trust a bag to be waterproof and with one big main compartment a thick binliner is an easy addition to make it waterproof! There's a rain cover available separately but I personally don't get on with them.
I can lash my poles to the attachments on the front too.
If I have one moan it's the thumb loops. I did use them once to hold my poles for a minute when I needed my hands free but I find them a bit superfluous and the flap around in your peripheral vision at times. A minor issues and nit picking.
As you can probably tell I'm very impressed with this bag for this price. I don't expect it to last decades of hard use but it seems well stitched and put together so only time will tell. Well done Decathlon. Great product at a keen price.
For the price, it's a bargin!!
Light & spacious. Good side & top storage .
A good comfortable rucksack that is easy to open and close that i use for commuting to work.I also use this for day in the hills with ample space for waterproofs, food and drink, camera and binoculars.
big enough for daily use or a day in the hills
not waterproof but for what it cost cant complain
