Tough, Space, Comfort
A great bag if you're planning to transport small nations up hills.
A very big, very strong and fairly heavy bag, the weight can be a problem if using aircraft as it is nearly a quarter or most hold luggage allowance.
There is a water bladder pocket on the lid which can easily take 2 2.5l bladders which is very useful in hot environments.
The main compartment can be opened from the top or the bottom and has water proof covers at both ends, this makes packing and organisation much easier which can be a problem with such a large undivided space.
I have used this bag for treks lasting weeks and covering hundreds of miles while carrying 30-40 kilos and it stays comfy with no sore spots apart from on my thigh from hitching it up onto my back, once there you can (almost) forget it’s there.
Highly recommended and well worth the price, providing you need the capacity that is.
