    Functional design but can be improved

    I like the zipper opening at the back. it works like a travel backpack. I also like the flexibility of add on and off some parts. However, I dont understand those cheaper version also used a more durable frabic at the bottom and back, why that does not appear in this more expensive backpack.

    Super für Hike & Fly

    ...eine Susi3 mit 16 qm im 50/50 passt samt Hochtourenausrüstung perfekt rein. Dank der Rückenöffnung geht das komfortabel ohne Stopfen. Der Rucksack ist kompakt und einigermaßen leicht. Die Details sind durchdacht. Fairer Preis.

    Super Rucksack für Hike & Fly

    ...eine 16er Susi samt Hochtourenausrüstung passt perfekt rein, dank Rückenöffnung auch ohne stopfen. Der Rucksack ist dabei schön kompakt und einigmaßen leicht. Die Details sind gut durchdacht und das alles zu einem fairen Preis. Die Haltbarkeit muss sich noch zeigen.
