Put into the hand, the material looks firm and resistant. It crackles a bit, but that will probably put with the use. For a 55-liter backpack, he feels quite light, 2 kg shows the data sheet. Super I find the adjustable straps, which are adjustable from 33 to 46 cm back length, in contrast to my previous backpack. The quick overview gives all the necessary pockets: One in the headboard, accessible from the outside, the large main compartment, the sleeping bag compartment, the rain cover and the front of it - perfect - an outer pocket for jackets, crampons, etc .... The waist belt is wide, has a soft lining and is removable. The backpack itself is held in shape by two Aluleists, also removable and bendable on the respective back. A drinking box is available, there is an outlet for the drinking tube on both sides. On the outside, small bottles or similar. be housed in the mesh pockets for quick access. At first glance, this backpack offers everything you need for a trekking backpack.
First use - ski tour with bivouac
For winter ski tours with bivouac, the 45-liter backpack, which I usually use, is often very scarce. There is more space as called. Of course, the concept also applies to multi-day hiking tours or trekking tours. On the first ski tour Extensively tested, the backpack must show its durability directly. The skis can be fixed well on the sides and can then be worn properly. In addition, the ski boots hang across the top of the head and can be easily hang by the main compartment lock. Everything else is easily accommodated in the two inner compartments. The back and the hip pads are very comfortable and distribute the weight optimally (of course only with the right setting). Since the back is apart from the two Aluleisten very flexible and not rigid, one must pay attention already during packing on any buckling, which can be uncomfortable later.
All in all, one for the price (129 €, 50-liter women's version 125 €) very good backpack for multi-day tours, hut tours, trekking tours, or just to travel. There are certainly more sophisticated models, which are often more expensive and then have "features" that you normally do not need. The only clear minus I evaluate the non-rigid back part, which can be uncomfortable especially when fully loaded, unless the packing was not paid attention. Personally, I will use the backpack in the future in addition to the above-mentioned activities also for ski tours and high tours with additional heavy luggage.
