    London 40something ski tourer hiker
    Lightweight, tough, great size for ski touring, useful straps and loops for carrying ice axes etc, sits comfortably on your back and shoulders whether fully loaded or half empty.
    Marsupial I ain't - nevertheless I'd have liked to see some "snack pouches" on the belt straps, annoying (and indeed tiring) having to take the whole thing off just to grab a handful of nuts or a quick nibble of chocolate - also if I'm being super picky I found it doesn't balance well on one shoulder for a short carry (say from the car to the house) and has a tendency to slide down your arm as a result.

    Perfect size for kit needed for all day walking with the family. Very comfortable to wear, even when heavy. Inside remained dry even through a few hours of rainfall. Very pleased with my purchase
