berghaus freeflow 30+6 rucksack

I've had this pack about ten months and used it a lot. In fact it's my pack of preference for everything- even though at 36 litres it's pretty small- but I can just about cram everything in if I am using the gateway poncho/tent, cooking on fires and generally cutting everything to the bone. For days out in the woods or hills there is plenty of room for the m-kettle and other odds and ends.

That's the front view- nothing that special- all those mesh pockets are useful, especially for storing picked up stones and litter and carrying rain coats. what's far more interesting is the back view:

 Yes- way more interesting. The way your back is kept well away from the sack is brilliant. Far far reduced sweaty back syndrome. Hardly noticeable in fact. Just like the good old days with a karrimor external frame like the Annapurna I still have but stored elsewhere. Nothing beats an external frame for comfort and strength and lightness- I will go back to one I am sure. But for now the freeflow 30 is the one for me.

It has lots of pockets. Clever side shafts that take water bottles and stuff. A nice rain cover which you can sit on too. Lots of thought by people who actually use rucksacks went into this one. Weight? Not mega light- but still bearable- maybe a kilo. The one let down was a few days ago when a seam started to unravel. I'll fix it but still you'd expect more durability from a £60+ sack. Used my old karrimors to oblivion and back and never had anything unpick on them.

Sweaty back can get nasty when you're hillwalking in winter and well worth avoiding if you can. A nice looking and useful piece of kit you'll find yourself using all the time.
