JanVanGenkGood comfortable backpack

Voted 5/5

I am really satisfied with this small backpack. Besides of being light and very comfortable, there is room enough to pack everything needed for a daytrip or a summer summit day. I have used it for up to two-days climbing trips on moderate hights (2000-4000 m) with overnighting in huts. There are plenty of possibilities to fix the gear/clothing/sleeping bag outside it. It's possible to use a water reservoir (it has an internal pocket for this purpose and a hole for a tube). There is a small elastic strap on a shoulder starp which can be used to hold water tube in place.
