The item looks great and has proven to be reliable.
No flaws or failures.
A real eyecatcher.
This product is fine for what I paid for it. It’s no way as robust as a high end bergan but for 40 quid it does the job.
A canoe liner will be required in case of a down pour as this is definitely not going to keep your kit dry.
Another worry is the outer zip which seems flimsy and could burst open with a heavy load
Lots of pockets large and smaller ones.
Interior can be separated into 2 compartments with draw strings.
Differing height adjustments on shoulder straps for comfort.
Nice choice of colours
Great value pack. Easily adjusted to sit properly against the back. Main compartment's front access makes getting at gear easy without packing/unpacking. Plenty of straps and webbing.
Agree with previous comments about the side pockets not really extending out for additional space, and I would have liked to have seen a built in rain cover but that's a matter of personal opinion. All in all a fantastically priced multi day pack.
Bought it in order to take a band-saw bc f its cost and I thought "well.. wcs.. it will do its job"
Must admit, I was surprised. Carried 18 kg in it without even notice. After the flight I was more surprised to see how the fabric stayed, not even a little mark of the use. Since then trekked few times, one in the Israel National Trail - more than 900 km, almost 2 months of trekking - a great job!
Just could do with a few more pockets / sections for smaller items on outside perhaps.
Quality product, thoughtfully designed
I bought this product and was pleased to have to use it more seriously on a two-day walk. When it was filling the backpack the black part on top tore completely and got a hole. I know it is not a top backpack, but I have a backpack of another brand that cost the same and I have used it many times and it is already 10 years old and never ripped. So I am very disappointed with this product.
Thanks for your review on the Forclaz 60ltr trekking backpack. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the failure of the backpack. All our backpacks carry a 10 year warranty so please drop into your local store where we can exchange the product for you and take a look at the liner.

Can fit a lot staff. Plenty of pockets. Can be opened in multiple ways. Missing straps to hang things from the bottom. Only drawback, its not waterproof
I love how light and comfortable it is to use, easy to adjust back attachment, and it was the only one I could find that you could completely open the front to access anything anywhere in the bag without having to dig through the bag. However I would have liked to see more pockets and a built in rain cover like on other brands. Also the material it's made from could be a bit thicker/robust.
you can open the whole front of the rucksack
Needs more pockets and a bit flimsy material
