my extrodinarily generous dad and step-mum decided to buy me, as a surprise for Christmas, a Jalan 65+15 Berghaus backpack.
I was thrilled... but... it's pretty massive. I don't think I can fill it all, and it weighs 4.8 kgs without anything in it! I have a total baggage allowance of 20kgs.
I'm going to the Amazon jungle for 3 months, and I won't be trekking every day, all the time, but I wanted people's opinions on this weight. It does come with wheels though...
I'll reply in advance to the 'you should have gone out and got it yourself comment' - yeah, I would have done, but a free backpack, no matter how big? I think we'd all accept it quietly
