A solid day pack-sized rucksack with two side pouches and loops on the top and front for securing additional gear. Based on the almighty German Bundeswehr rucksack which was praised for its rugged construction. Although this pack does not have a frame, a folded sleeping mat slips into a pocket on the back and keeps the pack rigid, making it easier to carry heavy loads. Simple and versatile for general use.
The design features adjustable buckles on the front and side pouches, heavily padded shoulder straps and a (removable) waist buckle. With a reinforced vinyl bottom and interior, this pack is robust and keeps the contents protected. A simple drawstring around the top compacts the load down into the 25 Litre pack. An excellent piece of equipment for day hikes or overnight tramps (if you're packing light). Also suitable for everyday general use.

Bought this bag to take it hiking over the tongariro ranges, ended up ripping one of the straps about half way through the trip.
I purchased this rucksack for a durable yet reasonably sized day pack. Unfortunately, despite the very expensive price, the bag is weak. The pvc bottom has a hole along the stitching though all I've carried are some books. The shoulder straps are weak at the stitching also.
While I have purchased many items I've been happy with (on the NZ store), this is one I am not.
Sturdy, plenty of capacity, comfy.
Suits wearing a belt with pouches on it, as it doesn't go all the way down your back.
Took it hunting and I'm really happy with it. Recommended!
