personally I think this is great.
I didn’t buy mine from evans, it was on ebay from an outdoor shop, i forgot the name.
I would highly recommend the pack, the back support is great, loads of compartments…. etcPosted 3 years agoCaptainMainwaringMember

Osprey material is very thin, tearing thin I’d say. Light weight though, but prone to rip on climbs, probably ok on the bike.
I have been using a Talon 22 for 4-5 years as my all day pack. The material looks like it would rip just by looking at it, but I can testify that it is amazingly resilient. It has been well used and had numerous big offs into rocks and all sorts of stuff, but still doesn’t have a mark on it. Is tick it in the washing machine and it comes up like newPosted 3 years agoShackletonSubscriber
Evoc. Bombproof, well designed, well implemented, no pointless “features”, plenty of storage and organising options inside and the most comfortable and stable bags I’ve ever used. Deuter, camelbak, and osprey seem very inferior in every regard by comparison (I’ve owned and used bags from all of these brands, I’m not going back). Expensive maybe but the best value for money by a big margin.
Not sure I can think of a rucksack that would really work for all activities though. Maybe some of the osprey ones would suit better if that is what you require, but would still be a compromise on some aspects.Posted 3 years agobadllamaMember
Just got one of these Lowepro Rover Pro 35L AW Backpack after reading the review in Singletrack and although expensive and mainly for photo kit lugging it would make a cracking 35l overnighter acres of room.
Did 16 miles in it last Sunday and it was very pleasent. Lowepro stuff is pricey but having 4 diffferent bags off them (for different types of video / photo jobs) they will last a life time even when abused. 😀Posted 3 years ago
