im planning my first rtw trip in march next yr and need some advice about backpacks/travelpacks!Sorry i know you probably get this question alot
I've been and tried quite a few different packs on but cant make up my mind!I think i prefer travel packs (easier to pack/find stuff in a hurry) and the best designed one (well for my needs!) is the Vango Vango Planet Traveller 55+20S (Womens fit) but the problem is i cant find any reviews of ppl who own one and have used them i know im probably being a snob but it seems to me how can something be so good when its so cheap (at least compared to berghaus, karrimor etc)
anyone have one?
other than that i quite like the berghaus Jalan (i think is 55l + 15 daysac) as is v comfy to wear (i actually bought one and filled it up at home cos millets didnt have any weights!) but took it back as was not entirely convinced!
ive heard good reviews about osprey, macpac etc but i cant find any shops that stock them near me so is a bit of a problem trying them on!!i did quite like karrimor but now everytime i go in to look at them they all seem to have diff back-systems and plus have heard some bad rumours that they dont make v good products since they were taken over a few years back but dont know if that is true!
so basically im looking for a good travelpack around 50-60 litres, not overly fussed about daysacs but want something comfy and not-too-expensive which has well designed space inside (e.g different compartment for dirty socks and smelly shoes!)
any advice welcome esp regarding vango backpacks!
