Hi everyone

Im looking for some pack advice as i really dont have a clue ! I was in a couple of shops at the weekend and both of which gave me the hard sell on this Berghaus.

It seems to cover everything i was looking for i.e. easy to load/access, strong, carry straps, additional day sack etc etc

Im just wondering what everyone else thinks of these travel packs though ? Im away for 5 weeks backpacking in hostels, this pack looks like itd be pretty useful for any type of holiday though as seems to be like a combined suitcase/rucksack. For reference, im looking for something pretty convenient whether im on a weekend city break, backpacking for 5+ weeks or just a week at the beach

A couple of people have told me to avoid travelpacks like the plague and just go for a rucksack but to be honest they couldnt justify why they believed that ?!

Any advice is appreciated

Thanks everyone

P.S. The link is below, i couldnt get the berghaus main site link to work so heres one from a random store !

i have just bought that bag i have not used it yet other than a weeks camping but i really like it but think bags are a personal thing so you have to find one you love and stick with it . travel packs have to be good cos it easier to get your stuff good luck

Hey how's it goin?

I'm a bit of a backpack rookie too but it sounds like the one you're talking about is the one I was looking at and indeed tried on at the weekend. It seemed OK to me - had everything I was looking for anyway :)
