Hi
Has anyone any experience of the Karrimor Global 70-90? I am off to India and am thinking of this sack or one from Macpac the Gemini or Orient Express.

Thanks

Phil

Nah, not familiar with the KG 70-90. However, one of my going away presents from pals at work last year was an OSPREY Transporter 90 and I must say this is the best rucksack I could imagine. It is perfect in every way. It opens like a hockey bag but totally sits on the back like a huge climbing sack and can also be formed in to a duffel bag. Cant say enough good things about my sack.

I tender to prefer the loose shabby type myself. With a bit of girth around the left hand edge!

There is a shop in Bacolod in the Philippines that buys and sells bags etc and there is a big sign outside it that says "We Will Buy Your Empty Sacks", which made me giggle

I dont know about the Global but I bought my Karrimore Cordiale 70 back in 1989. Its been absolutely everywhere with me, from city breaks to a year in Africa. It has been treated with no respect whatsoever and much as I would like to buy a new fancy one with lots of pockets, the damn thing just will not die. I now consider it my good luck charm when I travel.
So, if it is quality and durability you are after, I cannot recommend Karrimore enough!

Karrimor rucksacks are very durable, we have 65l panther Karrimors but it is far more important how they feel on your back.

Before you make the decision go to a shop that sells them and get a shop assistant to fit one to you...you might find it feels really uncomfortable on, remember you are going to have to carry it for quite a while, so make sure you are as comfortable as possible!
