I thought this would be a poorer cousin of a similar Kathmandu backpack - but I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality. I haven't tried filling it but would probably agree with the reviews that mention the l capacity probably being a little smaller than advertised. Am looking forward to using it (I bought 2 in different sizes). The size when folded is a little bigger than I was expecting so it's not, for example, going to fit into your pocket or a small bag (it probably is about the size of a small handbag), but I can't see how they can really get it much smaller.
We bought a red and green ZOMAKe Uktra Lightweight Packable bag for some light hiking. The bags have useful meshing on each side for water bottles. The overall quality is great and they lasted our Hawaiian hike all day. I recommend these bags and they fold up so they can be packed easily in airline luggage etc. A great product and very happy with our purchase.
I was afraid it would be too big for a day pack, but it is the perfect size. A regular drink bottle fits perfectly in each of the side pockets. Fabric and sewing are sturdy and look like they will resist well. Happy with my purchase and with the vendor.
I used it for the first time last weekend and was satisfied with its lightness, comfort and the amount it could carry. However one of the tags on the end of a zip came off the first time I pulled to close it. I haven't been able to slide it back on. Otherwise a good product and I'm looking forward to using it as my day pack when backpacking next month.
I have just received this backpack for use on a tour so have not used it yet. However I am pleased with the way it looks, it folds up easily into its pocket and seems to be well made. I am actually considering using it as my carry on luggage instead of the usual small suitcase. I can just pop it under the seat.
Works really well as a secondary backpack to bring with you on your travels. It has already saved me once when I need more space. Considering it zips up into a tiny form factor, it’s really easy to carry it along. Definitely worth the price for me.
Exactly what I was after. A durable lightweight day pack that looks good and packs down to a very small size. Extremely well constructed. And well packaged too. An absolute steal at the price. Very happy!
