I'm a fan!!!

A small, extremely practical backpack for outings to the park or short walks (half day). I used it with a 2L water bladder and there was still enough room to store other useful items. The insulated lower compartment is a brilliant idea! A small piece of ice and your drink, snack, lunch stays cool for several hours. Hat!

The best for refrigerated

Super comfortable, great quality and far improves other models because it is isothermal.

There is clearly a missing…

There is clearly a lack of an abdominal belt that would allow optimal carrying. There, everything rests on the shoulders. I do not recommend it for hiking.

It would be perfect if it had a padded waist belt to distribute the weight on the hips

Durable and very comfortable to carry

Bag that adapts to all outings (sporty or family). Very well thought out (possibility of switching the bottom to an insulator, a thin floor mat in the bottom which takes up no space and above all no pain when carrying it even after a long walk which is rare.

Disastrous... Damages clothes!

My husband and I purchased two identical bags of this model for our day hikes. We were seduced by the multiple compartments and functionalities. Unfortunately, we noticed that the bottom of these bags damaged our clothes on the back! We are terribly disappointed with this double purchase, and the cost generated by the degradation of our technical clothing... Avoid!!!

I recommend

Very good backpack. I've had it for a year. I take it as hand luggage on the plane (more for the duration of the flight + a few most necessary things - because it's hard to pack for a week) and on trips to the mountains. It "fits" to the contents, you don't have much stuff in it, you tighten the straps and it's neat, it's small and it looks good, you stuff it to the brim, hang it with jackets and it looks just as good. The waterproof mat has come in handy several times for sitting on wet grass, sand or snow. I was worried about the Velcro that "tightens", but I fasten it carefully and nothing has happened so far.

Nice and good little backpack. I really like the compartment at the bottom that keeps food fresh. It fits quite a lot.

He looks very…

It looks very solid. The insulated pocket at the bottom of the bag is very practical because it closes completely and remains isolated from the other parts of the bag. On the other hand, there are no pockets on the outside and it is very complicated when hiking to always have to open the large part of the bag. I don't find it well designed, which is a shame because it is beautiful.

Durable bag.

For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.
