Hi guys,

Anybody has that travel pack, or heard any feedback about it? I havent been able to find any reviews on the web, and it would be nice to know about personal experience...

Hi Miromar,

I have a very similar one called the Berghaus Spirit.
When I bought it, it seemed like it was going to be the best backpack ever to hug my frame! But unfortunately, it hasnt been the best buy.

After a year or so of travelling it doesnt matter what adjustments I make to it, it just sits too low down on my back. To look at me sometimes, it looks as if I can going to keel over backwards with it, which has resulted in an overcorrection in the way I carry it. ie a stoop :(

I'm hoping to get myself a Karrimor before I hit the road again (if I can afford it). I tried on a few other people's packs when I was travelling, and some of the Karrimors seemed like great packs - a bit expensive, but worth it if you're planning on hauling it around for more than a couple of motths :)

I have a berghause 15 +15L womens backpack and i love it! To be fair i haven't exactly been treking through the jungle with it but when i do carry it i find it v v comfy and HUGE on the inside.. I suffer from back problems and it hasn't come at me once even when ive carried the backpack!

Hope this helps...

Happy Travelling!

Hi guys!

Thanks very much for the advise!

I have tried it and it feels ok for me, so I end up buying it! Unfortunately, I cant afford a karrimor either , so this one would do for now I guess! (going travelling for 3months, so hopefully not long enough to get sick of it, if it comes to the worse!)

Can I be really sad and confess that I havent been able to put it away since i bought it?? I keep staring at the damn thing! Is my new baby!

Next step... the boots...
