Except that it doesn't have waterproof cover, it is a 'go for it without a thought' product.
Good material, excellent capacity
I've borrowed a few trekking backpacks before, but this was my first purchase, and I'm delighted with it. It has proved strong, robust, and comfortable.
The front that fully zips open is a feature I hadn't come across before, but was recommended to try it and now I'd never go back. If you want easy access to your stuff, the ability to pack and repack quickly, and need to arrange gear to sit comfortably, it's a must. The zips all work without snags and it has enough adjustments to keep it comfy without having so much that it gets too complicated.
It was hard to estimate the size I needed but I knew I wanted over 65l, and I'm very happy with 70l. It has served me well on two-week-long holidays, week long festival camping trips (complete with food, clothing, and copious heavy drink inside), and moving house. I haven't tried it for huge treks or backpacking, but for my occasional (but heavy when required) use it is spot-on. If I were making a purchase again today, I'd buy exactly the same one.
I note that it arrived in a much darker colour than the picture appeared, so if the lighter grey is important to you, do be aware of that.
Took this for an overnight hike and carried about 12kgs climbing some steep cliffs. Lowered the pack with rope over rock face and the fabric held up well with only some small tear on the mesh side pockets. Has all the feature found in more expensive packs and the weight is 5-stars.
This backpack is an attractive option for first-timers. Its built quality is above average. You will have to slightly scorch the loose threads with a lighter. After doing so, the internals of the bag becomes solid and durable.
excellent in quality
I love it..quality & cheaper wise
I had purchased the product December 2018...after two trips the strap and the lock was broken during my trip last month...it's was really difficult to carry the luggage during my trip as the main lock was broken there is no security for the bag...Ver much disappointed with the product...is it possible to change the lock?

I used this on my coast to coast 200 mile trek across the U.K and I have to say the best thing about is the fact it now smells of BO. I decided on this as the forclaz 50 has been an outstanding bag so I thought it's big brother would do me proud.
Good Points : Front zip is good for access
Bad points : Every thing.
The chest straps turn the shoulder straps into an instrument of torture.
The waist belt is worse than useless
Netted Pouches are useless when packed
All the buckles etc are profanity inducing.
I could go on but frankly it's making me angry thinking about the thing.
