Great Backpack for Outdoors activities!

Have used the pack for a variety of sports, from day-hikes to snowshoeing and snowboarding. The pack is very spacious and was able to fit extra mid-layers, lunch and a helmet when needed. The straps and and hooks throughout the bag make additional carabiners and things easy to strap on. Two small things, first is the snowboard carry system, which does not feel fully stable when hooked up, as the fabric of the bag is holding the weight of the board. The second is the waterproofing, however the bag is not waterproof and does not try to be so, but it would be nice. Overall for the price, 10/10.

Back pack

It was good. But I wanted a different color

Good bag, but the fabric...

It is very practical bag with many clever straps and solutions. Only disadvantage I see is the side fabric. The fabric is no duarble enaught, so it is often cutted during carrying skis on sides. This is very annoying.


Very good

I have been using this bag daily for almost 2 years. And its only now then it start ripping at the base of the bag. I use it for daily commute and also when going to the climbing gym. Really worth the money spent. And its really durable

This is a solid built back pack. The material, design & featuresis well thought through. The user has to get use to it on how to pack his things according to weight and materials. Because the bag is designed to be top big bottom small. The zipping need to accustom to as well, it get stuck if movement is not conscious with the shape of bag in mind. The top pocket is well positioned, however, if you put something bulky, it may obstruct your access to the main compartment. The rest of the features outside the bag were totally useful.

Simond Alpinism 22 is all you could dream about

For such a cheap backpack you couldn't expect more. The Alpinism 22 is durable, somehow waterproof, lightweight and with good some premium features such as axe & ski clips. You could also attach your helmet or poles. Zips are good and huge enough to open even with gloves on. The three pockets are really great :) very happy with my purchase.

Univerzál na všechny srandy

Jednoduchý batoh, příjemně se nosí, nosím do města, na tréninky, do školy, na hory.... Ideální velikost na 1-2 denní akce, dostatek popruhů na přichycení hůlek, cepínů, karabin nebo třeba i boxerských rukavic. Trochu mi tam chybí malé boční odkládací kapsičky.
