    Great product

    Well made, good number of features and straps for a range of activities. Straps are comfy. It would be nice to have an extra small pocket or two but thats a small point. Compare this item to other brands that make a very similar product but at double the price, this wins hands down. I mean the guarantee alone make this bag worth it.

    Simond 33 pack

    An excellent pack for walkers (although designed for climbers). Quality construction with plenty of features for carrying gear. Comfortable carry as well

    Broke first time out.....

    This is the second Simond Rucksack I have bought, the chest straps came off when out on first walk.. Unfortunately I don't thing these packs have the same quality as other Simond products.

    Brand response :

    Hi Matthew,

    Sorry to hear that the Simond Alpinism 33 did not meet with your expectations. From what you have said it sounds like a defect with the item.

    If you take it to your nearest Decathlon store, with a proof of purchase, you can exchange or get a full refund.

    Would you be able to provide more detail as to exactly what happened with the chest strap?

    Kind Regards
